What is it? Using Radio Frequency waves or heat therapy are meant to remold tissues and encourage collagen production. RF Therapy penetrates deeper than thesurfacetissues of theskin, penetrating into the dermis layer of skin. This method works fast at promoting skin tightening and collagen growth which normally would take months to achieve. Treatments are usually between 20-40 Minutes on their own. A “Simple Thermal Massage” is the use of “Hot Balms” or creams that are only topical, not getting deep into theskin. Yes! They may tighten skin but will not get rid of fat. Whereas you can seein the photo below, Radio Frequency penetrates deeper into theskin. Results can continueto appear for up to 6 months and can be doneevery 72 hours at most, to givethe body timeto regeneratecollagen and rid of toxins. This treatment is not painful and will need to be continued to maintain results. (Maintenanceshould be done once a month to keep results after finishing with package).
The term "radio frequency" refers to the thermal energy that's delivered to the skin by a device with the intention of causing micro-injuries, which trigger the creation of new collagen. Radio-frequency treatments can be performed on the face and all over the body, and it's known to tighten, firm, and lift the skin with little to no downtime.
Though efficacy will vary depending on the patient, modality used, and body part treated, one benefit of RF that is collagen banking, or preemptively mitigating the natural decline in collagen production that occurs with age. "We start to lose 10 percent of our total collagen stores each decade, [so] younger patients will often do RF treatments to increase their collagen reserves,. This increase in collagen production means patients' complexions appear more tightened and lifted.
She adds that the collagen-boosting benefits improve over time, as the skin's fibroblasts — the cells in connective tissue that typically stiffen and becomes less efficient with age — remain accustomed to creating collagen. That this prolonged tightening and lifting effect can be so pronounced that it can improve outcomes post-cosmetic procedure or even persuade a patient to delay or forego the decision to go under the knife altogether.
