13 Jul About Radio Frequency
If you want to look younger, tighten your skin and smooth your facial and neck contours through non-operative and non-invasive ways, this is the treatment for you.
The RF Non-Surgical Facelift is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that is completely safe for your skin. In fact, the medical-grade machine is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Association. The machine utilises a bipolar radio frequency probe that is run over the skin. The radio frequency is delivered into the skin, which increases blood flow, heats and shrinks fibrous tissues and stimulates collagen production. An instant result can be seen after one session and the firming action and collagen production can continue up to six months past the course of the treatment. Extremely comfortable and pain-free, this treatment can also benefit other parts of the body. Great results are seen when treating post baby tummy and loose skin left behind from weight loss.
Alternatively, fractional radio frequency can also be used for non- surgical face lifts. It uses a grid-like probe with metal pins that deliver the frequency into the skin (the pins are not sharp and do not enter the skin). Where the pins touch, it sends slight trauma to the tissue causing only trauma to that section and leaving the other sections of the tissue untouched. Again, the skin goes into a healing and rebuilding response.
Overall, the difference is that bipolar radio frequency causes trauma to the overall collagen and fractional radio frequency causes trauma to the collagen in small sections. The fractional radio frequency machine uses a lot more heat than the bi polar radio frequency machine, so it does create a little more trauma and a little more of a healing response. However, fractional radio frequency can be used closer to the eye area and over the larynx, temple and thyroid, where the bi polar radio frequency cannot.
For a treatment that would best suit you, a consultation is recommended to determine which machine is suitable for the results you desire.
