RF or Radio frequency sounds technical. It indeed is and is used for rejuvenation of loose skin. In the RF facial, Radio frequency energy is directed deep into the skin to target areas that has become resistant to energy flow and are accelerating the ageing process.
Humans are good conductors of current, when the RF energy is released, is becomes part of the electrical circuit. Resistance encountered by the flow of this released energy, results in heat generation in that resistant area and forces the body to regenerate and simulate. New collagen is formed leading to skin tightening, reduction of lines and wrinkles and at the same time making the skin look healthier, younger and smoother.
RF energy for facial tightening is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties. It is commonly used to treat the forehead ( it lifts eyebrows and tightens the skin on the forehead), under-eyes (thickens the skin and tightens & lifts the upper cheeks), cheeks (lifts them and diminishes enlarged pores), mid-face, lefts the jaw line and reduces the sagging, and on the neck - tightens skin and diminishes wrinkling of the neck.
The RF Facial is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment and a session takes between 30-60 minutes. The results of the treatment are rather immediate and the skin starts to get even better over the next 3-4 days. The results will last a while and will depend on the number of sessions and the state of the skin. Older patients need more sessions.
