Radio Frequency for skin tightening

Radiofrequency energy has been used for more than a century for a variety of medical applications. Unlike laser because RF energy is not dependent on specific chromophore interaction, epidermal melanin is not at risk of destruction and treatment of all skin types is possible.

RF is a form of electromagnetic radiation. The directed use of RF can induce dermal heating and cause collagen degeneration. Wound healing mechanisms promote the remodelling of collagen and wound contraction, which ultimately clinically enhances the appearance of mild to moderate skin laxity.

Course benefits

Skin-related treatments are currently in very high-demand and they are an extremely profitable treatment to offer clients, with many returning for regular treatments every 4-6 weeks to maintain beautiful-looking skin.

Radio frequency energy works by heating the dermal (ie lower) layers of your skin without having to pass directly through the epidermis (the surface skin) so that skin is maximally protected.  It initiates the body’s wound healing to result in tighter, firmer, younger looking skin.
