Radiofrequency Skin Tightening using the revolutionary technology behind the Protégé Elite makes the treatment of jowls, saggy necks, eye bags, flabby arms, and cellulite in thighs much easier. Protégé Elite uses heat created by radiofrequency energy to contract weak collagen and existing elastin in the short term. The heat, in the long term, stimulates a healing cascade that encourages fibroblasts to travel to the treated area to create new collagen. Because the new collagen takes 3-4 months for your body to produce, the best results are seen 3-4 months after a series of treatments. It is primarily used to treat mild to moderate jowls, mild to moderate neck laxity, under eye bags, but can also be used to get great results under the arms or for toning dimples and cellulite in the thighs.
A measurable difference can be seen after one treatment, but most individuals need a series of 3-4 treatments 10-14 days apart to see real results. The ideal patient is one who is looking for large improvement in small problem areas.
Protégé Elite requires no surgery, no anesthesia, no downtime, and no pain medications. There is also no redness or swelling after the procedure so patients can literally return to work or go to a major function such as a reunion or wedding afterwards, and enjoy the immediate improvement of the treatment that evening.
