Radio Frequency (RF) Ultrasonic Facial
Radio Frequency and Ultrasonic Facials are the ULTIMATE nonsurgical facelift! Radio Frequency (RF) energy is a non-surgical way to tighten and reverse the early signs of loose or sagging skin. Ideal for patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissue, usually those in their mid 30’s-50’s, with any skin color. This treatment helps lift and plump with radiofrequency waves known to promote the reproduction of skin cells and collagen.
Radio Frequency (RF) facial treatments work by using heat to trigger collagen and elastin production in the skin’s deeper layers. The results are instant. Your skin will look more supple and lifted. The treatment involves third generation radio frequency technology that offers a non-invasive, pain-free treatment to help firm skin and boost collagen production. What’s more, Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening comes with the guarantee that you won’t need any recovery time.
Unlike other ‘non-surgical face-lift’ treatments on the market, radio frequency actually stimulates the skin’s own natural renewal of collagen, resulting in smoother, tighter and younger looking skin. And the best thing is – Radio Frequency delivers great, visible results from the very first treatment. The treatment is suitable for everybody, especially those looking to target fine lines and wrinkles or excess skin.
- Ultrasound makes use of acoustic or sound waves with frequencies above what humans can hear – hence its name, “ultra”-sound.
- Ultrasound brings about short-term, immediate changes as well as much longer lasting results. It does so in a number of ways.
- Researchers have found that ultrasound energy can temporarily change the structure of the outer skin layer, making it easier for topical applications to reach inner tissue layers.
1MHz Supersonic or Ultrasonic: 1MHz supersonic had great effect on skin tightening, wrinkle removal, beauty product absorption
Ultrasonic Has 3 Effects
1. One million mechanical shocks per second will make the treatment area vibrate and message the cells ,thus promoting the metabolism of the body ,increasing the skin elasticity and smoothness
2. The thermal that the supersonic produced could accelerate blood circulation
3. Ultrasonic can decompose melanin, and lead PH value to alkalinity, which is better for beauty product absorption
Therapeutic ultrasound frequency ranges from 1-3 MHz. The higher the frequency, the less effective the ultrasound is. Ergo, 2 is stronger than 5. we use 1.1 MHz reaching 2.3 cm deep.
As the ultrasound waves pass from the treatment head to the skin they cause a vibration of the surrounding tissues – this is called a cascade of intercellular communication. Happily for those of us seeking firmer skin, this mechanism is particularly effective on cells that contain collagen. You will not actually feel these vibrations on the surface of the skin and the device will not feel hot against the skin. The vibration massages the surrounding tissue, which increases oxygen to the cells and aids in the removal of waste. The skin should feel energized, rosy and firm.
Ultrasound brings about short-term, immediate changes as well as much longer lasting results. It does so in a number of ways. The heat and vibrations from ultrasound can be designed to produce thermal effects at various depths of skin and deeper tissues. The heat produced by ultrasound waves increase blood flow providing the fibroblasts, the most common cells in the skin, in assisting the skin to rejuvenate itself and increase collagen production. Ultrasound waves are also capable of selectively injuring the skin to trigger a natural healing response. These combined thermal effects cause the skin lifting, tightening and firming that can be experienced after ultrasound therapy. The improvements are due to growth of new collagen and straightening of elastin fiber in the skin.
Ultrasound energy used in this way also improves the superficial skin layer, exfoliating and smoothing it, and leading to an improvement in skin color and complexion. Some patients have reported that their skin also becomes less oily.
Researchers have found that ultrasound energy can temporarily change the structure of the outer skin layer, making it easier for topical applications to reach inner tissue layers. Rapid oscillations caused by ultrasound energy alter the permeability of the cell membranes and increases fibroblast activity and collagen formation. Where applied, the temperature at the focal point rapidly rises while tissue above and below the focal zone are unaffected. Application causes collagen fibers to denature and contract and stimulates de novo synthesis of new collagen.
Ultrasonic Facial is a gentle, safe non-invasive treatment. Even the most sensitive skin will benefit from this treatment. The application of ultrasonic frequency is used to increase cellular turnover, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, relieve puffy eyes, or fade dark eye circles. This procedure is used for product perpetration (such as serums and anti-oxidants). Ultrasound is deep-penetrating – it stimulates tissue, increases blood flow, and promotes oxygenation. Heat is created, and the vibration in the cells stimulates circulation, metabolism, and lymph drainage.
How does Radio Frequency (RF) Ultrasonic Facial work? The radio frequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibers are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibers. Fat cells drain, then shrink, while those all important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue), are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibers. The effect is tighter, smoother, younger looking skin with a visible ‘lift’.
What is the treatment like? The treatment itself is surprisingly relaxing. Application of cosmetic gel and warming wand is passed over the skin. The wand gently heats the lower levels of the skin to approximately 40°c; this tricks the brain into thinking there has been a potential injury and stimulates a healing response. This in turn causes increased collagen production and tightening of elastin fibers. Radio Frequency will be applied for the first 30 minutes followed by 30 minutes ultrasonic. A heat sensation can be felt during treatment (sometimes compared to a sunburn), and you may feel some discomfort. A topical anesthetic is generally used prior to treatment to increase comfort.
When can I expect to see results? The tightening of elastin fibers is instant meaning the skin appears tighter and lifted from the first treatment. Most patients will be able to notice immediate results in the tightness of their skin. More results continue to emerge in the days following the treatment. Skin is remarkably smoother and muscle tone is more visible too. Normally, multiple sessions are required. Usually, 1 per week until you’ve had about 4-8 treatments in total.
Are there any side effects? You can expect some occasional redness that is usually gone within 30 minutes post-treatment.
A course of 6 to 8 treatments is recommended for optimum results. Ideally this should be 2 treatments per week for 3 to 4 weeks. After completion of your course it is recommended to have a maintenance session every 4-6 weeks. You will see continued results for up to 3 months after the treatment course has ended. This is perfectly normal as it can take the collagen time to reproduce.
