Radiofrequency (RF) technology can be used in a range of medical and aesthetic treatments to improve the appearance of the skin, tightening the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Radio frequency works by applying electrical currents to the skin, generating heat within the skin cells, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
How RF Technology Works
RF machines emit a high frequency electrical current that can target specific areas of skin, using a range of different hand-pieces or applicators. This energy is absorbed by the skin tissue, causing the skin to heat up to a controlled temperature.
The heat generated by a Radiofrequency treatment stimulates the production of new elastin fibres and collagen, which can lift and tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles and smooth the skin texture. Over a number of treatments, the skin becomes firmer and smoother.
RF Technology Benefits
RF treatments can penetrate deeper into the skin, compared with other treatments like Laser or Ultrasound. This means that it can target deeper layers of the skin like the dermis and subcutaneous layers, where it can stimulate the production of collagen.
RF technology is generally considered to be safe and effective for most skin types and colours, with fewer side effects than other treatments. However, each treatment application and device will apply RF in a different way, so you always need to research each specific device and what treatment it targets.
Many RF devices are paired with a complimentary therapy, such as massage, LED therapy, microneedling, massage or mesotherapy, to further improve the treatment results.
RF & Mesotherapy
Symmed RF is a unique treatment that combats medical-cosmetic disorders and stimulates the natural functions of tissues, helping to restore the skin’s natural balance and elasticity, oxygenating the skin for better circulation.
Symmed boosts the effects of Radiofrequency treatments using mesotherapy and functional cosmetics, resulting in the most advanced and effective, painless and non-invasive cosmetic technology, that offers the best results for facial and body treatments.
RF & Body Massage
Zionic is the first device that combines a system of deep active rotational massage with resistive radiofrequency that guarantees rapid results and maximum effectiveness in treatment of cellulite, skin tightening, body contouring and remodelling.
Zionic promotes the acceleration of the production of collagen and elastin, increase of metabolism of fat cells and compaction of adipose tissue. Promotes excretion of toxins and waste products by activating the lymphatic system and achieves an improvement in blood vascularization.
RF & Microneedling
Astra RF is a minimally invasive device that uses very fine gold plated insulated needles to create micro injury to the skin in order to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. At the same time Radiofrequency energy is delivered to the dermis without damaging the epidermis and minimising downtime.
