RF Radio Frequency
Radio Frequency is one of the most exciting treatments in aesthetics, non invasive and yet incredibly effective for all skin colours. In our early twenties collagen is abundant in our skin; however as we age the production of collagen slows down by as much as 1.5% per year. By the time we reach our forties the level can be reduced by as much as 30%, this is noted in fine lines; dryness and a loss in tone. Using the Radio Frequency waves produced by the Zeolight collagen regeneration is stimulated. Elastin fibres in the skin are also tightened and the overall area is rejuvenated.
How does RF Radio Frequency work?
Gel is applied to the skin then Radio Frequency waves are directed onto the dermis area where heat energy is created. As the waves create energy in the dermis the superficial epidermis is protected. The heat energy to the dermis heats up water molecules, which vibrate and rub together causing additional frictional heat. When the temperature reaches 60-72 degrees it will cause collagen fibres, in the dermal layer, to contract and stimulate collagen reconstruction.
Neurotransmitters from the brain sense that the generation of heat is a potential threat and the body responds by further stimulating collagen and tightening the elastin fibres. This is a natural response by the body, putting its defence mechanism in place. However the benefits of this defence mechanism is tighter, firmer and more youthful skin.
The skin also has a general freshness about it as the water molecules are excited and produce increased levels of oxygen, stimulating below the skin surface, helping to reduce scarring and stretch marks.
Who can have the RF Radop Frequency treatment?
Radio frequency is non invasive and, unlike some laser and IPL treatments, it can be used to treat all skin types. It is popular with both males and females over the age of 30 for stimulating collagen within the skin and to strengthen the elastin fibres.
What should I expect?
The Immediate Result: when the temperature of hypoderm reaches 60°C-72°C, the collagen will immediately shrink, you will see a quick initial tightening of the skin. This tightening is usually evident at the first treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles will smoothen and soften after one treatment.
Results over Time:
A course of treatments will give a more long term effect; to stimulate the recombination and re-growth of collagen. Ideally a course of treatments should consist of 6 – 8 sessions, 10-14 days apart. Once the course has finished, the skin will keep regenerating for up to six months when a maintenance programme can be put in place. It is the perfect treatment to create younger and more hydrated skin.
Results Depending on Skin:
The results will be dependent upon original skin condition; bearing in mind skin elasticity and tone. The results achieved are natural in appearance, by means of the treatment providing cellular stimulation rather than muscle tightening. The skin becomes more vibrant and gains general glow.
