Radio Frequency (RF) energy treatment is technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin; ideal for those people who either don’t want, or don’t believe they are old enough to have a surgical procedure. Pure RF energy alone (such as the Accent™, Pelleve™, Thermage™ and Tripollar™ devices) is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid 30s to 50s, with any skin colour. It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck. Based on current RF technologies, most people should see at least a mild improvement in their skin tightness, with minimal risks and downtime compared to surgery.
Here are 7 simple reasons to why Radio Frequency Facial Treatments will Slow Ageing and make You Feel More Confident
Radio Frequency (RF) treatments will help your skin generate new collagen, increase the oxygenation and improve your blood circulation. This will provide your skin the benefit of looking younger.
Radio Frequency (RF) treatments will help tighten the skin but also help burn fats and make the skin more elastic.
Radio Frequency (RF) treatments provides additional benefits including skin lifting, wrinkle removal, skin lightening as well as to help remove blemishes and fine lines.
Radio Frequency (RF) treatments, with the high frequencies, helps flabby skin become firmer.
Radio Frequency treatments may help remove blemishes and fine lines.
Radio Frequency (RF) treatments, as compared to other skin care treaments, are relatively painless with no or low downtime. Notably, since the skin surface is preserved, the downtime after the procedure is relatively short.
Radio Frequency (RF) treatments helps to enable the skin to easily absorb any creams and nutrition. This enhances the efficacy of your use of skin care products as part of your skin care regime.
Radio Frequency (RF) treatments do not require any post-treatment. No special care is required after treatment. However, light application of soothing or moisturising lotions would be ideal. At Wellaholic's Facial Studio, our treatment therapists will help to apply our W+ Protective Day Cream with SPF 50++ after the RF (Elight) treatment in order to protect your treated skin for the harmful effects of the sun, when you step out of our office.
In a study conducted at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University, Dr. Sadick and co-workers treated 108 patient using bipolar RF plus IPL version of ELOS technology, overall skin improvement was rated at 75.3%
In a study conducted at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University (pub. Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, 2005), Dr. Sadick and co-workers treated 108 patient using bipolar RF plus IPL version of ELOS technology [Refirme]. Each patient received five full-face treatments spread 3 weeks apart; each treatment consisted of 1 to 8 full-face and segmental passes. The researchers reported the following results:
"Overall skin improvement was rated at 75.3%. Overall average wrinkle improvement was 41.2%, with an average Class 1 wrinkle improvement of 64.7%, Class 2 wrinkle improvement of 38.6%, and Class 3 wrinkle improvement of 20.4%. Improvement in skin laxity was rated at 62.9%. Skin texture was reported to improve 74.1%. Improvement in the appearance of pore size was rated at 65.1%. Average improvement in erythema and telangiectasia was 68.4%. Average improvement in hyperpigmentation and dyschromia was 79.3%. Overall patient satisfaction was 92%. The overall minor complication rate, including blistering, crusting, and stripping was 8.3%, and the major complication rate was less than 1%. One small, depressed nasal scar was observed in one patient." (Source: http://www.smartskincare.com/treatments/noninvasive/radiofrequency_bipolar_plus_laser_light.html)
At Wellaholic, we offer facial rejuvenation treatments at our 16M Penhas Road facial studio using Elight - which is a triple combination of Radio Frequency, IPL as well as Epidermis Cooling, equivalent to the ELOS technology featured above. This is a skin treatment that uses intense pulsed light, or photo-dynamic therapy to treat skin conditions and remove effects of photo-ageing such as wrinkles, spots, and textures.
