RF Skin Tightening Careers

Careers RF Skin TighteningRF skin tightening Careers are some of the more interesting ones when it comes to Esthetics. That’s because RF is so diverse. As a result, you can use RF for just about anything (within reason!). Perhaps this is why so many are seeking career opportunities in RF skin tightening.

RF Secrets

It’s time for us to spill the beans. That’s right. Juicy RF skin tightening ‘secrets’ you may have never known.

First, let’s talk about time. Typically an RF skin takes between 20 and 45 minutes. That equals very little down time. Plus, redness is usually the only thing clients experience afterwords. However, if you have sensitive skin, you might feel slight discomfort.

So what does all this mean for you? Because most RF treatments are completed so quick, it allows clients to do them anytime throughout the day. We’ve even heard lunchtime is one of the more popular slots for RF.  Similarly at your office, this will increase patient turnover.

Secondly, let’s talk location. Normally with RF treatments we think of saggy spots close to the face, like the chin and cheeks. And, while those are some of the more popular spots, RF is not restricted to the face.

For example, many techs will incorporate RF treatment into other services because they’re so painless. RF can be great for smoothing stretch marks and tightening flabby spots around the stomach.

Lastly, we’ll discuss an aspect of RF you rarely hear about, adipocyte apoptosis. Also called fat-suicide, selective RF treatments have the ability to kill-off fat-cell in the treatment area. We encourage you to dig into the details, but in lamest terms, radio frequency seems encourage fat cells to kill others.

Now if you’re not impressed with ‘lunch break’ RF, stretch-mark removal, and fat destruction – you should be. We like to think of Radio-frequency as the ‘super hero’ of laser treatments.
