Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radiofrequency (RF) skincare devices are at-home treatments that allow us to give RF treatment without going to a spa. So, tip yourself on self-care! Radiofrequency is actually a technology that has been used for non-surgical skin tightening since 2001! It has only recently gained widespread recognition thanks to high-profile celebrities who rave about it.
What Do Radiofrequency Devices Do?
Do skin tightening devices really work? Yes, they do.
The way it works is simple, the devices use heat energy that penetrates underneath our skin which stimulates collagen production and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles while also improving sagging skin. Radiofrequency is a type of energy, which is measured in “frequency,” or wavelengths per second. Great for improving sun-damaged skin and age spots. RF devices provide an effective path to tighter tone resulting in a more youthful looking appearance.
Radiofrequency Skincare Treatment
First, it's painless. And No, RF is not microcurrency which NuFace devices use. Celebrity esthetician, Joanna Vargas, stated "microcurrent works to stimulate facial muscles and cellular metabolism. And Radio Frequency greatly improves elasticity and collagen production." In other words, RF is a frequency not a current. Radiofrequency treatment is sometimes referred to as a RF facelift and it only takes minutes each time. RF is a nonsurgical and noninvasive anti-aging treatment. It involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of our dermis which stimulates collagen production in order for us to have firmer and tighter looking facial features!
How to Use Radiofrequency
Always read a device's instructions thoroughly! Most devices suggest you should use a device 2x a week for ~10 weeks, and then do maintenance treatment once every two weeks. They can be used over the entire face, jawline and some suggest neck area as well. Most devices require a gel activator for use. I prefer devices that come with the gel.
