Radio Frequency Treatments
Radio Frequency Treatments are the latest discovery in medical science and cosmetic surgery. Their purpose is to rejuvenate the skin thereby reducing wrinkles, sagging skin, dullness, roughness and age spots. As we age, our skin starts losing its laxity- the reason for this is our frequent contraction of facial muscles like frowning, laughing and that it is one of the inevitable signs of aging. Conventionally, people had limited options for tightening the skin such as a facelift or neck lift- however; these procedures are surgical, invasive, and painful and have a long recovery time.
Not everyone has the patience or the nerve to go under the knife and wait for months to see results- for them lunch time procedures such as the radio frequency treatment are an ideal option. This technology makes use of sound waves for tightening up loose or lax skin around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, mouth, jaw line and other areas of the body. It also improves the texture of the skin making it soft, supple and radiant. In addition, it is superb at eliminating any active acne on the face.
How does the Radio Frequency Treatment work?
This treatment makes the use of the vibration of radio waves that cause friction and produce heat, which shrinks water molecules in the skin thus making it tighter. The heat causes the collagen fibers to shrink which tighten any loose skin. The entire procedure requires numerous sittings for up to 6 months. Results will start showing around 2 months following the fourth session. The radio waves can be penetrated deeper through the top layer of the skin directly into the fat as well as the cellulite beneath. This heat leads to the shrinking of the fat cells, which reduces the thickness of the fatty layers- no fat cells are removed or destroyed in the entire process- rather they are shrunken as to eliminate cellulite and sagging skin.
What are the benefits of radio frequency treatment?
- New Collagen Formation- this treatment makes use of no external body entering the skin rather it stimulates the production of brand new natural collagen simply by heating the skin.
- Improved blood circulation- In addition to all its other benefits- radio frequency boosts the blood as well as lymphatic flow. This enables an effective and swift supply of oxygen as well as a better clearance of harmful toxins to keep the skin young and radiant
- Fights active acne- As a plus point, any active acne cases are improved because of the heat suppressing the sebaceous glands.
- Tissue Retraction: The heat waves generated from radio frequency shrink the collagen fibers instantly making the skin tighter.
Is the treatment painful?
No, the treatment is not painful. In fact, it is like a deep and soothing massage. You would feel a warm sensation that will gradually become warmer- patients report that the procedure is comforting and relaxing.
