Radio Frequency is a cosmetic treatment designed to tighten loose or sagging skin in the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck, without an incision or recovery time. Radio Frequency is an energy source designed to uniformly heat the dermis (inner layer of skin), the heat is designed to tighten deeper layers of skin while helping to initiate the production of new collagen, which occurs over a period of time.
Face Lift Radio Frequency procedure takes 45 minutes. You can return to normal activities immediately, as there is usually no “downtime”. Minimal redness is seen in some patients but it usually disappears shortly after treatment. Heat-related complications can occur but are uncommon. There is no special care needed after treatment. However, as part of good skin care regimen, sunscreen is recommended.
The results of the facial treatments can last anywhere from several months to several years, depending on your aging process. As part of a dedicated program, treatments are given progressively once a week for 8 weeks and thereafter monthly to maintain your results for tighter and smoother skin.
How does it work?
The hand piece is slowly rotated over the target area transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis, heating the dermis between 40 and 50 degrees Celsius without burning the skin surface.
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.
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.
