About the Course
Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, also called radiofrequency skin tightening, is a nonsurgical method of tightening your skin. The procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is the most common protein in your body. It creates the framework of your skin and gives your skin its firmness. As you age, your cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. Skin laxity occurs around age 35 to 40 when the quantity and quality of your collagen begins to decline. Benefits of Radio Frequency One of the biggest benefits of radio frequency treatment for skin is the gradual change in the skin’s appearance. As RF works to produce new collagen and elastin in the body, the old, damaged skin is replaced. New skin is naturally firmer and tighter which gives it a youthful appearance. Most clients also report that radio frequency is quick and virtually painless.
Non-invasive RF treatments have quickly become a go-to for men and women who want an alternative to plastic surgery. While invasive procedures like a facelift are able to remove wrinkles and make the skin appear younger, they come with their own set of risks and setbacks. Radio frequency is an effective alternative to plastic surgery and the side effects of these procedures are often highly minimal.
Radio frequency skin care treatments are best suited for individuals struggling with loose, saggy, or wrinkled skin. Pregnant women or individuals who are prone to allergies or skin infections should avoid RF skin treatments. For an in-depth look at one of the beauty industry’s latest radio frequency technologies.
