Radiofrequency treatment is a non-surgical means of “reshaping” the body and the face from beneath the superficial layer of the skin. This method uses sophisticated devices specifically designed to treat men and women’s most common skin-aging problems like wrinkles, excess fatty tissues, or cellulite.
How does RF treatment work?
Unlike invasive procedures which primarily affect the most superficial layers of the skin, the resulting heat of the radiofrequency treatment works mainly on the deepest layer of the skin – the dermis – without affecting the upper layers that are above it such as the epidermis.
Since heat is a stimulation that promotes contraction of the underlying tissues, especially at the dermis level, soft tissues found within that area of the body compress, realign, and even produce new collagen, a process that normally takes many months to complete.
With healthy new collagen present from the deepest level of the skin, exposing such soft tissues to further radiofrequency waves will help sculpt and tighten those tissues into a more youthful and elastic surface.
Benefits of RF Treatment
Given how women’s skin varies from men, cellulitis is a women-only skin issue commonly found around the buttocks and at the back of the thighs, where we generally store our body fats.
Thanks to the RF treatment, however, gone are those days when we have to suffer from the skin-bulging problems caused by cellulite. With the adipose tissue and fats as the cause of cellulite, the heat coming from the RF treatment diminishes the bulging of excess fatty tissues.
Unlike cellulite which are skin-deep body fats and whose appearance is applicable only to women, general body fats apply to both men and women.
Looking at the anatomical level, both cellulite and general body fats have one thing in common – the problem lies with the fatty tissues from beneath the skin’s superficial and lower layers.
Luckily, the RF treatment is also said to address the issue of excessive body fats among us, regardless of age. The heat mechanism of the RF treatment causes some body fats melt and be drained into the system, thereby producing a result at par or equal to surgical means of losing body fats.
Partly what makes skin wrinkles so obvious sometimes are the clear lines that are creased over an elderly person’s skin often as a natural result of the aging process throughout the years. Others whose skin problems are not limited to wrinkles simply have excessively lumpy and stretched skin, possibly as a result of sudden change in weight.
However, as the quality of the skin that we see from the outside can be changed through some alterations from the inside, doing so with an RF treatment is the most efficient, thanks to the method’s non-surgical approach.
By applying the RF treatment, deep-seated soft tissues from under the skin are stimulated which facilitates healing through the production of new collagen tissues that are reactive towards the RF waves.
When applied to the face, the RF facial benefits those who may be experiencing some sagging on the skin of the face, among other common aging issues.
Not all who go through the process of liposuction always have a 100% smooth finish to the affected area. Some may notice bumps on the area where body fats are surgically removed, often a not-so-pretty sight in comparison to well-toned and proportional skin tissues, muscles, and some fats.
Although there are existing measures that address this issue among post-operative liposuction patients, RF treatment can also be employed for a bout of non-surgical treatment for the issue of bulging and sagging skin.
