Radio Frequency is a safe, non-invasive way of tightening loose or lax skin around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, jawline and jowls. This is a great way to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and creepiness and improve skin tone and texture. It is also brilliant to help treat active acne. Radio Frequency is suitable for all skin types!
How does Radiofrequency work?
The Radio Frequency energy is absorbed by the water molecules deep under the epidermis causing friction between the molecules; this is then transferred into heat energy. The skin thinks there is going to be an injury due to the heat under the skin’s surface and sends out messages to the brain to release new fresh blood flow to the area, activate collagen stimulation, and shortens elastic fibers causing the skin to tighten.
The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibers, to immediately tighten the skin.
NEW COLLAGEN FORMATION
By heating the dermis of the skin, new collagen production is stimulated. This tightening effect is delayed and may take 3-6 months to be visible. This does not give a dramatic result immediately on the lines and wrinkles but over time you should notice a good improvement that has a long-lasting effect (not like injected collagen which is short-lived).
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. Active acne is improved through the heat suppressing the sebaceous gland activity.
Cellulite is visible when fat clusters in the dermis become distended and elastic fibers become rigid, causing dimples at the surface. RF heating disrupts fat clusters and over time causes new stretchy elastic fibers to be produced and results in a smoother skin surface.
Radio Frequency will give immediate lifting and tightening effects as well as a longer lasting tightening within 3-6 months when new collagen has been produced and after the treatments have finished.
