HOW DOES RADIOFREQUENCY TIGHTEN SKIN?
Radiofrequency Therapy (RF) is a common non-invasive aesthetic procedure that uses a high-frequency alternating current to heat tissue in the dermis of the skin in a controlled and selective way to increase collagen, which consequently decreases skin laxity and photoaging. This thermal effect is so efficacious because it causes changes in collagen structure and also triggers neocollagenesis, or the production of new collagen fibers, in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue.
As we get older, our bodies produce less and less collagen. This is why our skin becomes thinner and looser with age. Collagen is an essential protein for the skin and is the driving force behind skin becoming firmer, smoother, thicker, and more youthful. Radiofrequency reverses signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles by inducing tissue remodeling and replenishing depleted collagen.
How does it work? Once the skin reaches about 107.6°F or 42°C (use an infrared thermometer), the body releases heat-shock proteins that stimulate new collagen fibers to be created. Because of the ability of radiofrequency to reach the dermal layer of the skin, the skin is made firmer while existing collagen fibers are also strengthened.
The time for new cell turnover is 28 days, so radiofrequency treatments can be repeated regularly to achieve cumulative effects. This non-invasive treatment includes absolutely no downtime, pain, or discomfort, and works wonders at turning back the clock on your skin!
BENEFITS OF RADIOFREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING
-Strengthens collagen proteins and encourages the production of new ones
-Tightens and firms facial and body skin
-Decreases depth of wrinkles
-Extremely effective at combating mouth and forehead wrinkles
-Smoothes out cellulite bulges
-Encourages elastin production
-A great precursor to cavitation treatments due to its heating effects
-Natural and safe for all kinds of skin
-Reaches depths of the skin that many other skin tightening treatments cannot
HOW DOES MICROCURRENT LIFT THE FACE?
Microcurrent is a type of electrotherapy which delivers micro-currents that mimic the body’s natural currents. When these micro-currents are delivered into the skin, the body interprets them as natural and it is able to stimulate the facial muscles. This ultimately works out your muscles to appear firmer, more lifted and tightened. Microcurrent is extremely beneficial for decreasing puffiness and lifting muscles, achieving incredible results without any need for Botox or fillers.
BENEFITS OF MICROCURRENT
-Stimulates muscle toning
-Results in a natural facelift
-Relieves symptoms of rosacea
-Improves skin elasticity and tightness
-Results are cumulative with increasing treatments
