Radiofrequency Therapy (RF) is a common non-invasive aesthetic procedure that uses a high-frequency alternating current to heat tissue in the dermis of the skin in a controlled and selective way to increase collagen – which consequently decreases skin laxity and photoaging. This thermal effect is so efficacious because it causes changes in collagen structure and also triggers neocollagenesis – or the production of new collagen fibers in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue.
As we get older, our bodies produce less and less collagen. This is why our skin becomes thinner and looser with age. Collagen is an essential protein for the ski and is the driving force behind skin becoming firmer, smoother, thicker, and more youthful. Radiofrequency (RF) reverses the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles by inducing tissue remodeling and replenishing depleted collagen.
How does it work? Once the skin reaches 107.6 degrees (I use an infrared thermometer to constantly monitor the temperature of the skin), the body releases heat-shock proteins that stimulate new collagen fibers to be created. Because of the ability of the RF to reach the dermal layer of the skin, the skin is made firmer while existing collaged fibers are also strengthened.
This treatment includes a double cleanse, diamond microdermabrasion exfoliation, RF therapy, treatment masque selected for your individual skin concerns, 20 minutes of LED light therapy, and finishing products chosen for your skin.
