Latest generation Tri polar Radio frequency (RF) energy is a new and promising technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin. RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties, with any skin colour. It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line and the neck. RF can also be used in conjunction with ultrasound cavitation to aid in further fat breakdown and also to tighten the skin in the same area the cavitation treatment has taken place.The hand piece is slowly rotated over the target area transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis, heating the dermis to between 40 & 50 degrees Celsius without burning the skin surface. The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibres to immediately tighten the skin.
New collagen formation: By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated. This tightening effect is immediate and usually lasts for between 3-6 months.
Improved circulation:RF will also improve the blood and lymphatic flow. This helps with a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to further reduce the effects of aging.
What is the RF (Radio Frequency) face lift and how does it work?
Radio frequency is the latest technology for facial and body areas in need of rejuvenation. The RF treatment handle uses uni-polar and bi-polar radio frequency to heat subcutaneous dermal tissue using a hand piece emitting RF waves. This causes the contraction of the existing collagen fibres, encourages fibroblast migration and promotes new collagen growth that helps to tighten and improve the outer architecture of the skin. You’ll see the lifting effect and feel how your skin becomes tighter, smoother, and more elastic. There is no down time (apart from the treatment time itself) and minimal discomfort. It is a walk-in walk-out procedure which takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
What can a course of RF Face Lift treatments do for me?
The goal of the radio frequency face lift is to restore a more youthful look by helping to reverse the signs of ageing and gravity.
The treatment achieves:
