How does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening work?
This treatment tightens the skin using Bi-polar radio wave frequencies which vibrate the water in the dermis causing friction and heat which causes the collagen to contract and become more compact leading to a dramatic tightening and lifting effect.
Unlike laser/IPL treatments which tend to be absorbed or scattered by the upper layers of the skin and can cause some burning, RF skin tightening can work into the deeper layers of the skin without doing harm to the upper layers.
A RF handpiece is slowly moved over the treatment area, transmitting an oscillating current of low level radio waves, to the deeper layers of the skin. The current causes the skin to heat between 39-42 degrees Celsius. This heat- a controlled trauma, stimulates the skins natural wound healing response, in turn stimulating collagen and elastic, which plumps and lifts the skin.
Tissue Retraction: 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 delayed and may take from 3-6 months to be visible.
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.
Clinical research has shown that the bulk heating of the connective tissue in the lower layers causes the skin to tighten.
RF skin tightening is achieved by the effect of the heat on the collagen fibres which causes them to lose their long fibre structure and shrink into more compact from. This causes an increased tension within the skin which achieves the effect of tightening.
