Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio Frequency uses low energy radiation to heat the deep layer of your skin called the dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen to help improve signs of wrinkles and sagging skin.
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 but can occur earlier.
RF waves heat the deep layer of your skin up to 42°C.
Studies have found that maintaining a temperature over 42°C for over 3 minutes causes your body to release heat-shock proteins. These proteins stimulate your body to create new collagen fibres.
