The radiofrequency of the face allows to treat skin laxity and wrinkles / furrows with natural and long-lasting results.For an optimal result, more sessions are usually necessary (on average 4-8 sessions).The best candidates for radiofrequency are still young patients with modest sagging skin . In severe cases, with very pronounced laxity, the result would not be satisfactory.Radio frequency can be used for the treatment of –
maintenance after lifting.
Radio frequency can also be successfully combined with other aesthetic medicine treatments, such as fillers and botox shop dr schrammek products.
In addition to the face, other areas of the body can be treated with radiofrequency, such as:
neck (excluding the region near the thyroid gland);
inside of the arms;
inner thigh / thighs;
How does it work
70-80% of the skin (dry weight) is composed , a protein that aggregates into very resistant fibers that give support and resistance to the skin.After age 40, the body can lose about 1% of collagen for a year, collagen generation can reduced by 70 percent correlated to that of youthful adults. The loss of collagen , together with the thinning of the epidermis , the hypodermis and the bone loss, is responsible for the “sagging of the skin” and the appearance of wrinkles and laxity.
The device emits a high frequency alternating current (0.3 to 10 MHz). As it passes through the skin tissues, electromagnetic energy encounters resistance which converts it into thermal energy. In this way, a selective and controlled increase in temperature is produced , which follows a gradient inversely proportional to the degree of impedance of the tissues.
The heat causes the breakage of the collagen fibers , with consequent chemical and stoichiometric reorganization of the same (physically it determines a shortening of the fibers ). This phenomenon is at the basis of the so-called immediate tightening (filling) effect of the skin. Thermal damage also induces an inflammatory reaction , with the recall of chemotactic factors responsible for the production of new collagen fibers by fibroblasts . In the weeks following the treatment, an increase in the consistency of the dermis is thus determined , with a consequent marked tensor effect (skin tightening).
The effect of heat also causes peripheral vasodilation , with an increase in capillary permeability. The resulting increase in blood circulation improves metabolic processes and increases the amount of oxygen transported to the tissues.
The radiofrequency of the face also reduces the volume of the sebaceous glands , which is useful in cases of acne, oily skin and dilated pores.
