Fractional RF (Radio Frequency) for Skin Tightening
You might say that aging is a fact of life, but should you allow your prematurely wrinkled skin and sagging jawline to limit your chances in life when you still feel young at heart? Once you begin looking old, other people will start treating you like you are already over the hill, which can be humiliating. Fortunately, there are ways to restore your youthful look. Fractional radio frequency (RF) for skin tightening is the most advanced aesthetic skin treatment technology available today.
What causes premature aging?
To understand how Fractional RF skin treatment works, it is important to understand how premature aging occurs. As you grow older, your skin gradually loses its luster and elasticity. Wrinkles appear on your face. The skin of your cheeks, jawline, and neck begins to sag. Some people begin to look old even before they are forty. This is called premature aging.
A number of factors contribute to premature aging such as unhealthy lifestyle choices, bad habits, diet, smoking, drinking, gravity, sleeping position, facial expressions, and exposure to the sun. Of these, sun exposure is the most damaging to your skin. Exposure to direct sunlight causes photoaging by dehydrating your skin and damaging skin cells.
What is Fractional RF skin treatment?
Fractional RF skin treatment is a procedure in which the energy emanating from radio frequency tightens the skin. You have probably heard of radio frequency. While the exact definition of radio frequency is very technical, it will suffice to say that that it is a range of electromagnetic waves that include those used in radio communication. Fractional RF achieves skin tightening by heating the skin tissues and stimulating subdermal collagen production.
The procedure is performed using an RF device, such as a Thermatrix. It works best when combined with a procedure called micro-needling. One of the most advanced skin rejuvenation technologies, Micro-needling utilizes the body’s natural healing capabilities to produce flawless skin. Micro-needling involves inserting very fine needles of 0.5 to 2.5mm in diameter into the skin. The punctures are only skin deep and not painful.
When combines with RF, micro-needling has powerful additive benefits in skin rejuvenation. The procedure is used to tighten loose and sagging skin, treat sun damages, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, eliminate scars, and correct pigmentation.
Does the procedure involve surgery?
Fractional RF for skin tightening is a noninvasive procedure that does not require surgery. This means that no cuts or incisions are made to the skin. The skin is penetrated using radio frequency, which is painless, noncorrosive, and doesn’t leave any scars. The depth of penetration depends on the number of electrodes the device has. Treatment typically spans eight to twelve sessions of thirty to forty-five minutes each session.
Are there any side effects?
Since RF devices use high-energy radio frequency, you may experience some discomfort if you’re in inexperienced hands. Apart from this, there are no significant side effects. The procedure is safe and painless, and it can be done on all skin types and colors.
