RF is an effective way to improve skin tightness and elasticity, reduce wrinkles and cellulite, boosting the overall condition on areas of the body such as the face, chin, upper arm, abdomen, thighs, bra line or buttocks. The technique induces tissue remolding and production of new collagen and elastin. The process provides an alternative to facelift and other cosmetic services. RF can be used on clients who have had botox, dermal fillers, laser treatments. Clients must wait at least one week before any treatments are performed.
Radio Frequency (RF) systems utilise a handpiece that is slowly rotated over the treatment area. The handpiece transmits radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis, heating it to between 39-45°c while the epidermis remains undamaged and unaffected.
The act of applying this heat to the dermis triggers three excellent benefits:
- Tissue retraction – The heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibres, which immediately tightens the skin to reveal a lifted, tighter and more youthful appearance.
- New collagen formation – Heating the dermis stimulates production of new collagen which is essential in the battle against signs of ageing. Increased collagen equals plumper, firmer skin with a greater level of elasticity.
- Improved circulation – RF also improves the blood and lymphatic flow. This helps induce a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to further reduce the signs and effects of ageing.
