Skin Rejuvenation through Monopolar Radio Frequency

Although there is no escape from the natural process of aging, none of us would like the symptoms of ageing to manifest.  As we age, so does our skin.  It changes texture and loses elasticity, causing facial lines & wrinkles.  Frequent exposure to the sun can also cause wrinkles, because it damages skin & speeds up the aging process.  Improvement in skin laxity can be difficult to achieve without invasive surgical procedures.  However, monopolar radiofrequency (RF) promotes tissue tightening & contouring, plumping out the skin & smoothing out wrinkles, making it appear tighter and more youthful.  Currently, monopolar radiofrequency represents the gold standard of treatments designed to tighten skin in a non-invasive fashion.














How does it work

Monopolar radio frequency utilizes radio frequency waves to safely deliver & produce an electric current that generates heat which in turn produces thermal energy through rapid vibrations.  When the temperature generated is over 68 degrees Celsius, expansion of the arteries & capillaries occur, which in turn improves blood circulation & enhances the metabolism.  At the same time, this effect heats the collagen in the deep dermis & subcutaneous tissue.  Once heated, this naturally causes the loss of collagen which in turn over time stimulates collagen to renew.  As a direct result, a new reconstructed layer is obtained encompassing a smoother, more wrinkles free, rejuvenated elasticity & shine.


It also allows more oxygen to flow through our system & help eliminate waste more effectively.  This technology selectively targets the deep dermis & sub dermis layers, while leaving the epidermis protected.  In other words, it works by selectively delivering heat energy to the middle & lower levels of skin, stimulating new collagen growth.  


Benefits

Benefits to using radio-frequency treatments for skin tightening and rejuvenation include:




Different Applications & their Effects

Skin Rejuvenation


Pain Relief

Deep heat speeds up healing by increasing blood flow to the injury.  Deep heat may be used to treat chronic arthritis, bursitis, fractures, gynaecologic diseases, and other problems.

Like surface heating, deep heat is used to:


Cellulite Removal & Body Shaping

Cellulite, though not a part of the ageing process, is another demon that makes us look older, even at a younger age.  The fibres that we take in are regularly cleansed by body fluids; however, poor circulation retards this cleansing process.  Fat cells are trapped by these un-cleansed fibres and over time form a network.


As a result, waste materials accumulate, then slowly thicken and become hard and immovable.  This results in cellulites, or the orange peel effect.  


The good news is that cellulite is not a disease.  Radio frequency can be used to treat cellulite anywhere on the body in a non-invasive manner.  The fat tissue underneath the skin is heated & the collagen in the area under treatment is regenerated.  In body shaping, radio frequency reduces the fat and tightens the skin on the abdomen, thighs, arms & hips.  Radio frequency has now emerged as a really effective, non-invasive treatment for the stimulation of new collagen & to improve body contours.


Treatment Sessions

As with Sound Wave Liposuction, the number of Radio Frequency treatments needed cannot be pre-determined and is dependent on the result required.

For maximum weight loss:


The below sessions can be focussed on one area.


For smaller amounts of weight loss:


It is recommended for clients with a lower body fat percentage to rather spread treatments to once a week


Thereafter you can maintain as you like


Treatments last about 15 minutes.


Prior to Slimming Treatment

For optimum results during treatment please take the following measures prior to treatment:



Contraindications

Clients with any of the following conditions should consult a physician prior to treatment (please provide doctor’s letter of consent with visit):



Clients in any of the following stages:

Why is ultrasound better than a just doing a facial?

When a conventional facial massage is given, the therapist’s hands provide an average of three vibrations per second; ultrasound achieves three million vibrations per second. This high-frequency massage can help soften scars, improve skin tone and increase skin elasticity.


Ultrasound also creates friction and increases local heat, which increases the activity of skin cells.  By doing this, production of collagen and elastin increases, toning the skin.  Increased temperature also stimulates blood flow to the area, bringing with it more oxygen and nutrients for healing.  Another benefit of increased blood flow is an increased lymph flow, removing toxins and waste products.


The combined stimulatory effect of ultrasound firms the skin and helps to break up scars, and counteract the factors that underlie the signs of premature aging.  Also, research from the New England Journal of Medicine magazine suggests that external application of an ultrasonic wave may temporarily widen the intracellular spaces of the skin’s outer barrier layer.  When this is followed by application of a topical skin care product and then a second treatment of ultrasound, the rejuvenating topical agent is actively "driven" into the skin with sonic waves.


The benefits of this intradermal drug delivery can be further enhanced when the skin is pre-treated with microdermabrasion.  Microdermabrasion, a non-invasive technique that removes the top layer or dead skin, allows more efficient penetration of the beneficial topical agents.
