Radio frequency uses energy to create a field of deep dermal heating. The heat is of a natural and therapeutic nature, which causes both immediate skin tightening and delayed collagen improvements. The immediate improvements are a result of existing collagen contraction. The delayed improvements are due to the induction of new collagen formation. A perfect option for thin/loose skin on neck and jowls, cheeks and/or eyes, the procedure is considered non-invasive with no-downtime as other then mild redness no injury occurs to the skin’s surface.
Pure RF energy is primarily used and combined in our clinic with NSL and C.I.T to treat skin laxity by skin tightening, it is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial or body skin tissues, usually those in their mid thirties to fifties, with any skin colour.
It is commonly used to treat the forehead (lift brows and tightens forehead skin), under the eyes (thickens skin and tightens and lifts the upper cheek skin), cheeks (lifts slightly and diminishes enlarged pores), mid-face, jaw line (diminishes jowls- and sagging along the jaw line), and the neck (tightens skin and diminishes wrinkling of the neck).
However, if there is a significant amount of redundant or sagging skin, often seen in older patients over sixty, this procedure may not show a significant enough improvement and integrating other procedures will yield better longer lasting results.
In combination with other modalities, as we have discussed above, RF can be used to enhance a variety of treatments including hair removal, photo-rejuvenation, pigmented and vascular problems, Fat and Cellulite treatments to name a few .
Our clinic offers several protocols incorporating Radio Frequency combined with other technologies to achieve better results.
