There is no age limit for RF treatment

Radio frequency facial treatment is one of the newest methods of skin rejuvenation. With this method, you can easily have fresh and beautiful skin. In this method of treatment, radio waves are used, penetrating the layers of skin in order to stimulate collagen production and bring about positive changes in the skin structure. 

What Is facial Radio frequency Facial Treatment?

Radio frequency facial treatment, also called radiofrequency skin tightening, is a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation. This method involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin called the dermis. This heat stimulates collagen production.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It builds the framework of your skin. As you age, your cells produce less and less collagen, which causes sagging skin and wrinkles. Radio frequency facial treatment helps you to fight off these symptoms of aging.

How Does Radio Frequency Facial Work?

The skin consists of several layers, the most superficial of which is called the epidermis. Beneath the epidermis is a layer of dermis that breaks down during the aging process and causes skin aging.

RF Rejuvenates the Skin through 2 Separate Processes

Radio frequency facial treatment does two major things for your skin, which we will discuss below:

Stimulation of Collagen Production

The energy produced by radio frequency waves in the dermis stimulates collagen production. Protein is an important structure in skin tissue that makes your skin fresh, strong, and beautiful. The energy of radio waves is converted into heat in the dermis layer, and an increase in temperature is one of the stimulating factors for collagen production.

Activation of Fibroplasia

Fibroplasia is the process by which the body makes fibrous tissue. Fibrous tissue stimulates collagen production and makes these protein fibers shorter and stronger. Tissue fibrosis occurs when the body's normal tissue is damaged. Very similar to the thick and rough tissue that covers superficial skin wounds. In radio frequency facial treatment, selective lesions are made in areas of the skin to form fibrous tissue. In this way, the dermis layer thickens, and collagen production increases.

Benefits of Radio Frequency Facial

  • Skin tightening
  • Removing wrinkles and facial lines
  • Fighting against sagging skin
  • Removing open skin pores
  • Removing dark skin
  • Treatment of keratosis pilaris
  • Skin regeneration and rejuvenation
  • Treatment of stretch marks and acne scars
  • Increasing hyaluronic acid
  • Face contouring
  • No pain or bleeding
  • Gradual improvement of facial skin
  • Long-term results

Getting older exposes the skin to the harmful rays of the sun, and dehydration causes skin damage and signs of aging on the skin. Wrinkles, dark and light spots, sagging skin, cellulite, and stretch marks are signs of aging and skin damage.

One of the main reasons for aging and sagging skin or the appearance of stretch marks is the decrease in the amount of collagen fibers in the skin. The firmness and freshness of the skin largely depends on the amount of these protein fibers, and if their amount decreases in the skin tissue, we will witness the appearance of wrinkles, sagging, and other problems.

Today, non-invasive methods of skin rejuvenation using electromagnetic or mechanical waves have diversified. Laser devices that use light waves, and HIFU treatment using ultrasound or fractional RF, which is done through radio waves. All these are advanced technologies for non-invasive skin rejuvenation.

Each of these rejuvenation techniques is based on different technologies and waves, but they share very important aspects in common. The first and most important feature they have in common is that they are non-aggressive. This means they can make significant changes to your skin without the risks and side effects of surgery.

The second common feature of these non-invasive methods is their mechanism of skin rejuvenation. In non-invasive methods, the basic structure of the skin is not changed. They simply stimulate the skin to activate and restore tissue repair processes. This is while in invasive procedures such as surgery, serious structural changes occur in skin components. 

Radio frequency Facial Side Effects

Radio frequency facial treatment is a minimally invasive method. Because of this, there are going to be very few side effects and there is no need for recovery or rest after the treatment. Radio Frequency Facial side effects including pain, swelling, and redness are all temporary and, in most cases, will go away twenty-four minutes after the procedure.

Radio Frequency Facial Before and After

  • Try to use sunscreen because your skin is inflamed and the sun's ultraviolet rays can damage your skin.
  • Do not go to the swimming pool or sauna and do not do heavy sports until one week after the treatment.
  • Do not be afraid of the inflammation of your facial skin, redness of the skin and a little swelling of the face is normal.
  • If there is a blood clot on your face, do not touch it and try not to.
  • Do not wash your face on the day of the operation. Avoid washing your face with hot water and strong detergents for three days after the procedure as well.
  • Try not to wear makeup on the same day and use only moisturizing and regenerating creams.

Do Radio Frequency Facial Treatments Work?

Radio frequency facial treatment has the ability to produce heat and by heating the deep layers of the skin, it helps to produce new collagen and elastin in order to make the skin stronger, thicker and younger. One of the advantages of using radio frequency facial to heat tissue compared to lasers is that low frequency radio frequency can easily penetrate deep into the skin and improve the structure.

The levels of safety and effectiveness of radio frequency facial treatment or any other treatment for that matter largely depend on the experience and skill set of the person providing the treatment.

You need to bear in mind that the effects of radiofrequency facial treatment are not permanent, but will last a long time. Of course, the durability of the treatment depends on the condition of your skin, but collagen production as a result of the healing procedure can continue for up to eight months after treatment.

The results of one radio frequency facial treatment session will last for six months, but the results of an RF course of treatments that include 3 to 6 sessions reach can last for three to five years. You may need annual maintenance sessions, however.

Final Word

Although your skin changes as you age, with modern treatment methods, you no longer need to isolate yourself and observe as these changes chip away at your beauty. Radio frequency facial treatment can help you maintain your natural beauty and look more beautiful as you age.
