Radio frequency skin tightening is a non invasive skin tightening Facial treatment. The lifting facial rejuvenation targets nasal folds, lines and wrinkles around the eyes, slack jaw line, neck creases and mouth.
It is also excellent for the treatment of open pores on the face and acne. The effects of Radio frequency treatments are mostly attributable to the heat that is generated by the RF waves.
RF waves are most commonly used for facial rejuvenation and their ability to stimulate the protein fibres that keep the skin elastic.
Radio frequency devices come in all shapes and sizes and depths. Bipolar radio frequency which is 2 or more electrodes in the same hand piece, manoeuvred over the your skin via a gel, heating the skin to 42°c to create a healing effect.
Once the skin has reached 42°c it then causes friction in the water molecules in the skin, causing thermal injury. The heat and friction caused sends a message to the brain that the skin is getting damaged. The brain will then send fresh collagen to the face encouraging skin healing. During the treatment, the RF waves penetrate the skin to tighten from the inside out, as they stimulate fresh fibroblasts production, which will trigger fresh collagen production.
This results in tighter more taut skin that is noticeably more youthful. Radio frequency facial is one of the most comfortable Aesthetic skin tightening treatments and has been compared to having a hot stone massage on the face. This can be very relaxing for some clients.
