Radio Frequency Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation
Radio Frequency (RF) skin tightening is an ideal treatment for clients who are dealing with loose, sagging skin and/or fine lines and wrinkles, but don’t want to go down the surgery path. Nowadays you’ll find RF Skin Tightening treatments available in many salons, medispas and skin clinics that wish to tap into the rising demand for non-invasive skin tightening and rejuvenation for the face and body.
How it works
Clients simply need to sit back and relax while the beauty technician slowly rotates a handpiece over the treatment area (take loose skin on the tummy for example). This handpiece delivers RF energy through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis, warming it up to around 40°c. The client will feel a warm sensation, but it doesn’t burn or hurt – the heat bypasses the epidermis altogether.
The RF effect
The dermis reacts to the RF energy in three effective ways:
The targeted collagen fibres retract, causing immediate skin tightening. The skin is lifted and tauter, resulting in a firmer, more youthful appearance.
Collagen production slows as we age, but RF is great for kick starting production of new collagen which is why it is such a great anti-ageing tool. The new collagen formation promotes suppler, smoother skin with improved elasticity.
RF also works to stimulate blood and lymphatic flow. This process clears out toxins in the body to enhance the youthful glow and the tightening, rejuvenating effects.
Why we love it
Clients and business owners alike greatly benefit from RF Skin Tightening services, because it’s versatile – you can tighten loose and ageing skin on the entire face and body, from the tummy, thighs, buttocks and neck to under eye bags, jowls, décolleté and arms.
It doesn’t hurt either and there is no post-treatment downtime, so it’s a great selling point that clients can get on with their day as usual following their treatments. And because best results are typically spaced over a few treatments, it’s a wonderful way to keep customers coming through your door.
