Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, also called radiofrequency skin tightening, is a non-surgical non-invasive method of tightening your skin.
RF waves are a 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. (lowest spectrum in electromagnetic wavelength)
RF waves heat the deep layer of your skin to between 122 and 167°F (50–75°C). Studies Trusted Source have found that maintaining a temperature over 115°F (46°C) for over 3 minutes causes your body to release heat-shock proteins. These proteins stimulate your body to create new collagen fibers.
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.
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 and blood circulation.
RF therapy and ultrasound have been used since 2001 to fight against sagging skin and signs of aging.
RF therapy is included to our 50 and 90 minutes Hydra Organic Facials.
