The RF produces a gradual warming of the skin, acting mainly on the existing collagen fibers, strengthening and producing an effect called collagenogenesis (production of new collagen), immediately, the collagen fibers responds to the heat emission with a retraction, favoring the tension of the skin, which will show a smoother, firmer and elastic skin.
Tripolar RF allows energy to be focused, due to the electrical field that flows between the three poles of the handpiece, therefore tissues are heated up to three times faster, and there is maximum heat in the application area with minimal energy dispersion.
The aim is to gradually get deeper collagen remodeling, including the formation of new fibers that replace the aged ones, favoring homeostasis and generally improving the skin condition. This is a slow process and results will depend on the collagen condition of the patient.
1.What is rf?
RF is an electromagnetic energy with a wavelength THAT heats the dermis and subcutaneous tissues in a controlled manner without AFFECTING the epidermis. The immediate effect of this heat is to cause the dermal collagen to contract, OFFERING a skin tightening effect. There is also a slower progressive effect, where the heat stimulates collagen production, giving a plumper, AND rejuvenated appearance of the skin.
The heat also improves the circulation of the blood increasing the supply of oxygen to the tissues and the natural evacuation of liquids and toxins, improving the appearance and rejuvenation of the skin.
2.Which are the benefits of rf treatment?
A course of radio frequency (rf) treatments will help to lift, firm and tighten skin. Rf stimulates the skin’s own ability to produce collagen and elastin, minimize facial expression lines, reduces cellulite, improves blood circulation, improves lymphatic drainage
3.How many sessions are needed?
The number of sessions required depends on the condition of the skin and the expectations of every patient, regularly it will be necessary between 4 to 6 sessions for face and 6 to 10 sessions for body. The procedure is well tolerated and does not require anesthesia or down time. The patient will feel the sensation of heat that can last 2 to 4 hours after the session, the skin glows and will show erythema for 1–2 hours.
4. Which areas of the body can be treated?
The radio frequency can be performed on calfs, arms, thighs, upper and lower area of the buttocks, abdomen, back, hips, face and neck.
5. What happens after each treatment?
Once the session has ended, apply aloe gel in the treated areas. The patient can return to daily activities immediately, avoiding exposure to the sun and uv rays for 48 hours. It is important to drink water after the session to hydrate the skin and help toxins evacuation process.
