RF Treatment for skin Tightening and Face Lifting
The appearance of our facial skin has great bearing on our looks. Healthy, taut facial skin makes us look younger and more attractive. A good figure is an asset but a pretty face is one of no less importance, it is no wonder that from very early on in human history and in almost every culture independently efforts began being made towards preservation and rejuvenation of the facial skin.Today RF treatment for face is an important participant in such efforts, it is offered in medaesthetic clinics the world over, just as is laser facial treatment and other non invasive facial skin rejuvenation treatments.
Reversing Facial Sag
It is a well known fact of cosmetic medicine that reversing skin sag is a formidable challenge. While there are many methods for maintaining tight skin (such as topical DMAE, DMAE supplement pills, elastin and / or collagen synthesis activators) once sagging has occurred there are not many options available for remedying the situation. In the not so distant past the only way to reduce facial skin sagging was by a surgical "face lift" procedure. Such cosmetic surgery may produce fairly good results but it is costly, takes several weeks to recover from and is not without its share of possible complications and side effects.Through use of RF treatment for face and other non invasive medaesthetic treatments, such as facial treatment, it is now possible to achieve substantial reduction in facial skin sagging without the use of the surgeons scalpel.
How RF Facial Skin Treatments Work ?
RF treatment for face works by delivering radiofrequency electromagnetic energy onto the facial skin via an electrode. Through use of certain frequencies it is possible to penetrate the outer skin layers (the "upper dermis" and "epidermis"). The energy is then absorbed by underlying skin tissues causing them to heat up, cooling the skin surface using cryogenic spray prevents damage to the top layers of skin.This heating of deep skin tissue causes controlled injury to the subdermal layer. This in turn leads to healing of microscopic dermal and subdermal lesions, skin contraction and increased collagen production. The effects of RF treatment facial skin and an overall more youthful facial skin complexion. Other non-invasive facial skin treatments, namely photo-rejuvenation procedures such as laser facial treatment , work in a similar fashion the difference being the type of energy used to target the skin tissues intended to be heated.
Monopolar and Bipolar RF Treatment for Face
RF treatment for face may be divided into two subcategories, Monopolar and Bipolar. Monopolar RF facial skin treatments are administered using a single electrode with the opposing electrode is place relatively far away. This way the current flows deeply (up to 20mm under the skins surface) and intensely. This type of treatment is used for reducing facial skin sag, skin laxity and the breaking down of cellulite. With Bipolar RF treatment for face two closely positioned electrodes are sued. This way the skin tissue heated is only 2-4 mm bellow the skins surface. This type of treatment is usually combines with other medaesthetic facial skin procedures, such as laser facial treatment or IPL (Intense Pulse Light) for example.
