What is Radiofrequency Treatment?

Based on the scientific term Radiofrequency (RF),  radiofrequency treatment is a non-surgical means of “reshaping” the body and the face from beneath the superficial layer of the skin. This method uses sophisticated devices specifically designed to treat men and women’s most common skin aging problems like wrinkles, excess fatty tissues, or cellulite.

Radio frequency skin tightening (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.

The method utilizes radiofrequency waves which is basically heat energy meant for tissue remodeling and production of elastin and new collagen.

Unlike invasive procedures which primarily affect the most superficial layers of the skin, the resulting heat of the Radiofrequency treatment works mainly on the deepest layer of the skin, the dermis, without affecting the upper layers that are above it such as the epidermis.

As heat is a stimulation that promotes contraction of the underlying tissues, especially at the dermis level, soft tissues found within that area of the body compress, realign, and even produce new collagen, a process that normally takes many months to complete.

With healthy new collagen present from the deepest level of the skin, exposing such soft tissues to further Radiofrequency waves help sculpt and tighten those tissues into a more youthful and elastic surface..

Benefits of Radiofrequency Treatment

By now, you may already have an idea on how an RF treatment works with regards to aging problems common to both men and women. But how exactly does anyone experiencing treatment via RF benefits from it?

Diminishes or Removes Cellulites

Given how women’s skin vary from men, part of their uniqueness to men is the affliction of cellulite being gender-selective to them — Only women get cellulites while men never do. Cellulites is a women-only skin issue commonly found around the buttocks and at the back of the thighs where we generally store our body fats.

Thanks to the RF treatment, however, gone are those days when we have to suffer from the skin bulging problems caused by cellulite. With the adipose tissue and fats as the cause of cellulite, the heat coming from the RF treatment diminishes the bulging of excess fatty tissues.

Reduction of Body Fats

Unlike cellulites which are skin-deep body fats and whose appearance is applicable only to women, general body fats however apply to both men and women.

Looking at the anatomical level, both cellulites and general body fats have one thing in common – the problem lies with the fatty tissues from beneath the skin’s superficial and lower layers.

Luckily, the RF treatment is also said to address the issue of excessive body fats among us regardless of age. The resulting heat mechanism of the RF treatment causes some body fats to melt and be drained into the system thereby producing a result at par or equal to surgical means of losing body fats.

Tightening of the Skin

Partly what makes skin wrinkles so obvious sometimes are the clear lines that are creased over an elderly person’s skin often as a natural result of the aging process throughout the years.

Others whose skin problems are not limited to wrinkles simply have excessively lumpy and stretched skin, possibly as a result of sudden change in weight.

However, as the quality of the skin that we see from the outside can be changed through some alterations from the inside, doing so with an RF treatment is most possible thanks to the method’s non-surgical approach..

By applying the RF treatment, deep-seated soft tissues from under the skin are stimulated which facilitates healing through the production of new collagen tissues that are reactive towards the RF waves.

 

When applied to the face, the RF facial benefits those who may be experiencing some sagging on the skin of the face, among other common aging issues.

Post-operative Liposuction Smoothing

Not all who go through the process of liposuction always have a 100% smooth finish to the affected area. Others who did not end up as so notice bumps on the area where body fats are surgically removed, often a not-so-pretty sight in comparison to well-toned and proportional skin tissues, muscles, and some fats.

Although there are existing measures that address this issue among post-operative liposuction patients,  RF treatment can also be employed for a bout of non-surgical treatment for the issue of bulging and sagging skin.
Contour Reshaping

Just as when we think that shaping our bodies always require intensive work or surgery, RF treatment allows the reshaping of our bodies using a technology that works beneath the skin surface while leaving the superficial layers untouched.

Aside from cellulite treatment, removal of unwanted body fats, tightening of the skin, and its smoothing from the liposuction procedure, RF sessions facilitate reshaping of our body.

Through the procedure referred to as body contouring, users can see effective re-contouring of skin after the patient has gone through a lot of weight loss.

As a treatment applicable to most commonly looked parts of the body such as the face, radio frequency facial treatment benefits people who want a little bit of modification to the face for improvements.

Radiofrequency Treatment has Minor Side Effects

The RF treatment may be phenomenal for its ability to do its work without causing much harm on the process, but going through the treatment is not necessarily 100% risk-free.

Common Side Effects of RF Treatment Include:

  • redness on the skin,
  • mild swelling,
  • oversensitivity of treated area,
  • and sinking.

Others may even experience blistering and bruising as a side-effect with the treatment.

As no two individuals are alike, with the exception of twins, how one experience symptoms of RF treatment’s side effects vary. Moreover, experts advise patients who are to go to the RF treatment to not use topical solutions on their skin to lessen the chances of side-effects.

Radiofrequency Treatment has Radiation

Although generally designed to be beneficial than harmful to man for under-the-skin treatments, radiofrequency by its nature emits radiation. While experts say that this level of radiation does not really cause harm, some people may still be sensitive.

Those who do, however, experience bouts of pain that at times require sedation just to go through the process. Doctors say this is a common radio frequency skin tightening risk.

Other More Serious Side Effects

Although probably less common, RF treatment has more serious side-effects too than those already mentioned. For treatments such as for the tightening of the skin, side-effects like: burns, permanent scarring, skin pigmentation, open sores, deeper skin fat loss, and infections are also possible.

The Output is Not Always Predictable

Identified more specifically towards Thermage, a brand in RF treatment, some experts in the field of dermatology downplays Thermage as an effective solution in skin tightening especially when compared to its surgical counterparts. However, the more pressing issue with the Thermage treatment is in its unpredictability to produce a good result.

Some Radiofrequency Treatment Only Works for a Small Percentage of Patients

Pointing to the same method as Thermage, some experts agree that the method itself is not very good for its intended purpose of making skin tighter.

Unpredictability in producing good results aside, the radio frequency benefits and treatment simply do not work for some. If they do, they simply are not good enough for many as far as tightening the skin is concerned.

The radiofrequency treatment may be a convenient way of addressing some of our common aging problems attributed to skin because of its ability to produce results without the harms seen on its invasive counterparts. But the RF treatment is not without its own cons as already mentioned.

Less serious or otherwise, the RF treatment produces side-effects whose occurrence varies from person to person but can be prevented and even easily mediated with proper precautions to its approach.
