As you age, your skin starts to have wrinkles and sag due to the decline of collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are responsible for giving you vibrant skin. But as you grow older, the quality and quantity of these two components reduce. The body cannot produce as much as it needs.
RF or radiofrequency therapy uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate deep into your skin layers. The essence of the treatment is to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The stimulation hastens the repair and revitalization of skin cells. It causes your body to go into overdrive, tightening your skin and smoothing out wrinkles and lines.
Here are some benefits you will notice when using RF facial tightening.
GETTING RID OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
RF therapy smooths out fine lines and wrinkles on your face. This results from the additional benefit of increasing the production of hyaluronic acid. The body naturally produces this acid. However, you can also find it in moisturizing lotions, creams, serums, and ointments.
The purpose of hyaluronic acid is to help heal wounds fast and reduce scarring. This is due to its ability to regenerate tissue and maintain skin moisture. RF therapy helps remove fine lines and wrinkles as the body hits overdrive. It produces more hyaluronic acid, making the skin flexible as collagen and elastin tighten it. It also reduces crow’s feet around the eyes and other creases.
FIRMING UP LOOSE SKIN
Besides aging, weight loss can cause the skin on your face to sag. RF therapy will help it tighten as the levels of collagen and elastin increase. The energy waves trick the skin into thinking it has a wound. So, it produces more of these two components to help it heal. In the process, it firms up your skin and reduces sagging.
REVERSING AGING SKIN
RF therapy revitalizes the skin inside and outside. As the skin tightens, it reduces the size of the pores and any signs of scarring on your face. It also eliminates dark spots from skin damage. After tackling all these issues, it leaves your skin looking and feeling youthful after a few sessions—reversing the aging process.
EVENING SKIN TEXTURE AND TONE
Years of walking and working in the sun leave your skin with damage due to exposure. You may notice this as dark spots and blemishes. Combining hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin improves skin tone and texture. It also deals with dark spots and blemishes, replacing the damaged skin cells with new vibrant ones.
As your skin tightens, so do your skin pores, resulting in a smooth texture. However, do your best to stay out of the sun for at least a week. It protects your skin from irritation during treatment, ensuring you get the best results.
The therapy shows potential in reducing facial fat. The side effects that you may experience are mild redness several hours after the procedure. However, the effects dissipate by themselves. Studies show that 90 percent of women experience fat reduction and facial slimming after five weeks. Thus, it is an efficient nonsurgical face slimming method.
RF therapy is an FDA-approved procedure. Therefore, it is safe, noninvasive, and has low downtime. You do not require as much time to recover as with invasive procedures. It is safe for all skin types and produces fast results.
