Radiofrequency energy (RF) is a form of electromagnetic current that generates thermal energy and delivered through various tissue types. The heat increases skin metabolism while stimulating collagen and elastin production for cell renewal, reducing the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. This technique can induce remodeling effects on the tissues.
Typically two types of methods, external or internal.
An internal RF induces tightening effects by heating up the deeper layers of the skin. This treatment typically involves a small incision to allow an internal probe to be passed into the layers beneath.
Treatment names include: Acutite, Bodytite
This technique can be used to treat a wide range of concerns such as sagging brows, periorbital area, laugh lines or nosalabial folds, marionette lines, sagging neck. It can also be applied to the body such as upper arms, hands, abdomen, thighs and legs and bra fat.
