Radio frequency (RF)

Radiofrequency (RF) Treatment

Radiofrequency (RF) is a technology used in non-invasive skin tightening facials, such as non-surgical facelifts. RF energy is 100 million times slower than visible light but can penetrate deeper than lasers, stimulating soft tissues beneath the skin to improve skin tone, structure, and lift tissues. It is also found in low levels in devices like cell phones, televisions, and WIFI.

How does Radiofrequency Work?

Radiofrequency facial rejuvenation treatments use heat to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin’s deeper layers while also encouraging cell turnover, resulting in immediate visible results. Radiofrequency treatments work by directing radiofrequency energy to specific areas of the body in order to jumpstart the body’s own renewal process. Heating the deep layers of the skin causes collagen fibres to contract, instantly improving the appearance of sagging skin, leaving you with skin that looks smoother, firmer, more radiant, and youthful.

What can Radiofrequency treat?

Radiofrequency (RF) is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to improve lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, stretch marks, and rejuvenate tired-looking skin. It can be applied to both the face and body, and unlike laser or LED treatments, RF uses electrical heat energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Unlike other non-surgical cosmetic facelift treatments that only stimulate facial muscles, RF continues to show results even after the treatment, as it triggers the skin’s natural healing abilities to continuously stimulate collagen and elastin production. It can safely treat various skin tones without causing permanent discoloration.

Procedure and Treatment

Before beginning your treatment, the therapist will cleanse your face. After the face is prepped, a handheld device emitting radiofrequency will be directed over the treatment site several times. During treatment, your skin will feel comfortably warm as it is heated to between 38 and 40 degrees for best results. It takes about 30 minutes to treat the entire face.

For best results, a series of six to twelve sessions spread out over several months is recommended. Your healthcare professional may also recommend radiofrequency skin treatments in combination with injectables, microneedling, and other minimally invasive treatments.

  • Electrical devices like pacemakers or metal implants

Risks or Side Effects

Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments are safe and minimally risky when performed by an experienced therapist or doctor. They prevent overheating and can cause burns if not done correctly. Side effects are usually minor and temporary. RF facials are generally safe and can be resumed immediately. However, sensitive skin should inform the therapist or doctor. Choose a reputable clinic for a safe and effective treatment.
