What is Radio Frequency Facial Skin Tightening?
The RF skin tightening procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen. As you age, your cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. Collagen is the most common protein in your body. It creates the framework of your skin and gives your skin its firmness. RF therapy has been used for over 20 years to fight against sagging skin and signs of aging.
How does RF tightening work?
RF waves are a low energy form of radiation. Radiation is the release of energy in the form of electromagnetic waves. It can be classified as low energy or high energy depending on the amount of energy released. X-rays and gamma rays are examples of high energy radiation while RF waves are considered low energy. The RF energy that is delivered causes ions in the treated tissue to collide, creating thermal energy (heat), which induces thermal changes, the heat basically causes a controlled injury to the tissue that triggers the body's own natural wound healing process. Healing ultimately results in tightening loose skin on your body by stimulating the production of collagen.
