RF Facial Skin Rejuvenation
How does RF Facial 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 for face are substantial reduction in depth of wrinkles, elimination of facial skin blemishes, tighter facial skin and an overall more youthful facial skin complexion.
You may be required to wash your face with soap and warm water prior to your treatment, in order to remove any makeup and skin oils which could interfere with the application of the RF treatment.
What should you do before treatment?
You should try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes sunbathing (natural or artificial). Practitioners are unlikely to treat someone who has sun burn for example, as they would be more likely to suffer pain from the addition of heat to the already damaged skin; however an established tan would be fine.
What should you do after a Radiofrequency For Facial Rejuvenation treatment?
No special care is needed after treatment although your practitioner may suggest some of the following:
Light application of soothing/moisturising lotions, creams or gels to the treatment area;
