What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?
Radio frequency (abbreviated RF) is a term that refers to alternating current (AC) which, if input to an antenna, will generate an electromagnetic (EM) field.
RF skin tightening uses High Frequency RF waves of energy to selectively heat the sub-dermal connective tissues (collagen protein fibres).
How Does RF Skin Tightening Work?
This technology works by heating up the skin, the dermis in particular, to approximately 42 degrees, using a treatment head with three or more “poles” emitting RF waves.
This targets the area immediately beneath the treatment head to a consistent depth of up to 8 mm, triggering three specific reactions:-
- Existing collagen tissues shrink, providing an immediate tightening and plumping effect.
- Old, fibrous collagen is denatured and broken down by the body.
- Fibroblasts (the cells that create new collagen) are stimulated to create new, fresh, supple collagen.
The laying down of fresh, new collagen fibres results in skin remodelling, taking place over 3-6 months and lasting up to two years, although “top up” treatments every 6-9 months can prolong this effect.
NOTE :- Some people only have issues with skin laxity, e.g. the face or on the abdomen after childbirth or weight loss, and not always with fatty tissue excess.
Loose skin due to weight loss or ageing of the supporting tissues appears wrinkled and lifeless.
Old, fibrous and dis-organised collagen fibres are unable to support the surface tissues.
A cooling gel is applied to the treatment area, then the Multi-polar Radio Frequency (RF) treatment commences.
The Multi-Polar RF technology generates heat in the subcutaneous
layer, causing the existing active collagen to contract, delivering immediately tighter feeling
The RF treatment also selectively denatures (breaks down) the old, inflexible collagen and stimulates the re-growth of fresh, healthy and
flexible collagen fibres.
With successive treatments, this cumulative effect will deliver long lasting results!
Over time the volume of collagen increases in a more organised structure. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst also providing tighter, plumper firmer feeling skin.
Achieve tighter feeling, smoother skin
o This is the primary reason for clients purchasing the treatments
o Initial tightening will be immediate following treatment as collagen fibres contract
· Tighten and smooth loose skin
o Over time and successive treatments, new collagen fibres are formed, resulting in a
plumper, fresher, more youthful appearance
· Improve self esteem
o When you feel good about yourself, this stimulates a positive feeling toward all other aspects of life.
