IT’S NON-SURGICAL AND USED TO TARGET SAGGING SKIN IN PARTICULAR – HERE’S HOW RADIOFREQUENCY WORKS, WHY IT’S A LONG GAME AND WHO SHOULD STEER CLEAR
Radiofrequency: as facials go, it doesn’t exactly sound the most thrilling, but radiofrequency treatments have form where tightening and firming skin is concerned. Like laser and LED treatments, radiofrequency uses energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production, but the heat energy is electrical rather than light based. Here’s your rough guide to radiofrequency, what it’s good for you.
IT TARGETS SAGGING SKINR
RADIOFREQUENCY IS APPEALING BECAUSE IT’S A NON-INVASIVE AND RELATIVELY GENTLE WAY TO TIGHTEN SKIN:
“Radiofrequency (RF) is a treatment that has become increasingly popular in recent years and uses RF energy to heat the dermis and tighten the skin without damaging the top layer.”It’s this tightening, firming action, brought about by boosting collagen and elastin synthesis, that makes radiofrequency especially suitable for targeting loose skin and the neck and chin, wrinkles and lines that develop between the nose and mouth.
IT CAN BE USED ON THE BODY TOO
Radiofrequency treatments can “smooth out stretch marks and tighten areas of loose skin”, making it just as apt for your bum as it is for your face.
“Unlike some other fat reduction methods, this treatment is completely painless, has no downtime and provides an even, feathered result without surface irregularities.
“Mechanisms of action include encouraging fat cells to commit ‘suicide’ (so- called adipocyte apoptosis) after treatment with selective radiofrequency.”
What are radiofrequency facials?
Consider them the treatment equivalent of your contouring palette.
Procedure time:30 to 40 mins
- Duration of results:30 to 45 days
How does a radiofrequency facial work?
“Radiofrequency is all about stimulating your own collagen production. During a treatment a machine is used to heat the skin to between 38-40 degrees with radiofrequency, which feels like a hot stone face massage – you do feel the heat in the skin but it’s comfortable.”
Can radiofrequency help reduce lines and wrinkles?
“It’s great for softening fine lines – especially the nose to mouth lines – as well as lifting the cheeks and tightening the jawline, so it’s great for age prevention.”
