How it Works
It is now widely accepted that radiofrequency with massage is the best currently available technology for non-invasive, non-surgical skin tightening and cellulite removal. Radiofrequency treatments are used in aesthetics as a way to deliver intense heat to tissues deeper than the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) with the aim to boost collagen production, circulation and (optionally, depending on treatment depth) fat release from those tissues. The massage aspect of the treatment involves a suction massage that causes increased drainage in the lymphatic system and fluid filtration from the cells.
Radiofrequency is based on the fact that very high frequency electrical currents (300kHz-40MHz) penetrate the superficial layers of the skin without heating them, only heating selected tissues, such as the dermis (middle skin layer where collagen-producing cells are located) and hypodermis (deepest skin layer where big collagen structures and fat tissue are located).
With a deep radiofrequency treatment, skin looseness and cellulite can be treated at the same time for smoother, slimmer firmer skin with one treatment. This is the essence of radiofrequency procedure: to provide a deep, focused action where it matters without causing irritation, redness and burns which can occur when the surface of the skin is affected.
Following RF thermotherapy treatment period, the inner structures of your skin will tighten faster while new collagen will spring up over a period of time. You should see an improvement in their skin tone. After the initial session, you may experience dry skin coupled with a mild burning sensation. This is normal and will disappear after a while.
RF and other minimally invasive laser treatments show remarkable and immediate results. Patients will need to come in for touch-ups at least once in a year.
