RF energy and micro-needling devices are used for skin tightening and rejuvenation, as the combined application is able to penetrate deep into the skin and affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers.
- 3 Different Tip Sizes
- Up to 3.5 mm Depth
- Partially Insulated Needles
- Minimal Discomfort
What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency is the number of oscillations or waves per second of the electric and magnetic fields within the radio waves portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
It is lowest of the electromagnetic radiation frequencies within the radio spectrum, which itself spans from radio waves.
By feeding an alternating current (AC) or voltage through an antenna or electrode electromagnetic waves can be generated that radiate through space at the speed of light.
The are called radio waves, or, RF.
Radio frequencies RF, have wavelengths ranging from less than a centimeter to as long as 100 kilometers.
What happened when applying RF energy to the body/skin ?
By applying RF energy to the human body/skin which can conduct current and therefore act as part of the electrical circuit, any resistance encountered by the energy flow will cause heat to be produced at the site of maximum resistance, which can also be used to cut or coagulate tissue.
RF energy when used for skin tightening is able to penetrate deep into the skin and affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers, causing tightening and improvements to the underlying tissue structure, with change in skin texture or fine lines and wrinkling.
What can Radiofrequency (RF) energy treat?
Pure RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial 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 color.
It is used to treat:
- the forehead:lift brows and tightensforehead 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 jowling and sagging along the jaw line.
- neck:tightens skin and diminishes wrinkling of the neck.
if there is a significant amount of redundant or sagging skin, often seen in older patients over 65 this procedure may show improvement but not a significant enough improvement.
RF can be also used to enhance a variety of treatments including:
- pigmented and vascular
- disorder, acne, acne scars
- and cellulite reduction procedures.
When to expect RF to the face and neck
RF to the face and neck depends in the amount of treatment necessary to until patient will see results.
RF treatment require 6-8 sessions on the neck 4-6 on face and results performance will accrue around the third or fourth treatment.
micronedeling combined with Bi Polar RF will perform better for patients with textural issues as well as laxity.
Usually 3 to 4 treatments are most effective by the combination.
In the The invasive treatments Patient will notice results as early as 6 weeks after procedure, And on going continued improvement For up to one year and more .
What is better, surgery or RF procedure ?
RF energy procedures devices are new and promising technology for non-surgical tightening of the early or more signs of loose or sagging skin.
Ideal for patients who either don’t want, or don’t believe there skin condition is bad enough to have a surgical procedure.
always strongly recommend to consult with a certified dermatologists/physician, before choosing a procedure.
By using RF energy technologies, most patients should see at least a mild or a major improvement in their skin tightness, with minimal risks and downtime compared to surgery.
