What is Rf Skin Tightening?
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is one of the most talked about treatments around! RF Skin tightening is an advanced scientific method of tightening and toning loose, saggy skin or aging skin with Radio Frequency energy. Treatments are nonsurgical, painless, and do not require any downtime, RF can be used in any area of the body to produce firmer, more youthful looking skin.
Who is RF (Radio Frequency) Skin Tightening for?
RF Skin Tightening is best suited to people with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties, with any skin color. A course of 6-10 treatments is usually required to achieve desired results. Results achieved range from 30-50% improvement.
Radio Frequency skin tightening is suitable for – ANTI-AGING SKIN, FACE WRINKLES, AGING SKIN RF can also be used in conjunction with ultrasound cavitation to aid in a further fat breakdown and also to tighten the skin in the same area the cavitation treatment has taken place.
How does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening work?
This treatment tightens the skin using Bi-polar radio wave frequencies which vibrate the water in the dermis causing friction and heat which causes the collagen to contract and become more compact leading to a dramatic tightening and lifting effect. Unlike laser/IPL treatments which tend to be absorbed or scattered by the upper layers of the skin and can cause some burning, RF skin tightening can work into the deeper layers of the skin without doing harm to the upper layers.
An RF hand piece is slowly moved over the treatment area, transmitting an oscillating current of low-level radio waves, to the deeper layers of the skin. The current causes the skin to heat between 39-42 degrees Celsius. This heat- a controlled trauma, stimulates the skins natural wound healing response, in turn stimulating collagen and elastic, which plumps and lifts the skin.
Tissue Retraction: The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibers, to immediately tighten the skin.
New collagen formation: By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated. This tightening effect is delayed and may take 3-6 months to be visible.
Improved circulation: RF will also improve the blood and lymphatic flow. This helps with a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to further reduce the effects of aging.
Clinical research has shown that the bulk heating of the connective tissue in the lower layers causes the skin to tighten.
