What is RF?
The non ablative radio frequency is a procedure commonly used for the treatment of skin laxity from an increased in tissue temperature. The goal is to induce thermal damage to thus simulate neocollagenesis in deep layer of the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
With a deep radio frequency treatment, skin looseness and cellulite can be treated at the same time or smoother, slimmer firmer skin with one treatment. this is the essence of radio frequency procedure: to provide a deep, focused action where is matters without causing, redness and burns which can occur when the surface of the skin is affected.
Radio frequency skin rejuvenation provides clients with skin that is younger and healthier in appearance by removing scars, fine lines. Wrinkles and discoloration. the procedure works by removing a single layer of the skin at a time; thus ensuring precision and optimum results. during the healing process, new skin cells form with the elasticity, brightness and even tone of youth.
Radio frequency is based on the fact that very high frequency electrical currents (300kHz-40MHz) penetrate the superficial layers of the skin without heating them. only heating selected tissues, such as the dermis (middle skin layer) where collagen hypodermis (deepest skin layer where big collagen structures and fat tissue are located).
After 24 hours, clients must clean the treated areas five times per day and apply a healing ointment, to prevent the formation of scars. Must apply 50 plus sunblock to the treated area, Swelling after resurfacing is to be expected and itching or burning sensations will typically begin 12 to 72 hours after the procedure. After seven days, the skin will dry out and begin to peel. The entire healing process takes 10 to 21 days after the procedure.
These treatments are best suited to patients in their mid-30s to 50s with mild to moderate facial sagging in the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jawline, and neck. Radio-frequency treatments alone will only tighten the skin. However, they are commonly combined with other modalities to achieve hair removal, photo-rejuvenation, pigmentation and vascular problems, acne treatment, and cellulite treatment.
