The non-invasive radiofrequency treatment uses electromagnetic waves to penetrate into the skin. RF waves pass through the most superficial layers of the skin into the deepest layers of the dermis and epidermis. Since radiowaves are not of light origin, they are not absorbed by cellular melanin and so can be used on all skin types any time of year.
Radiofrequency stimulates collagen and elastin production which will tighten and firm the skin. It is a painless treatment with no downtime. There will be some visible results immediately but the best results take 3-6 months, the time it takes our bodies to make collagen.
The effects of radiofrequency
- Immediately, the contraction of collagen induces remodeling and tightening of the skin.
- Long term, the protein released by the thermal effect stimulates fibroblast production (the cells that produce collagen in the tissues)
PURE medical aesthetics provides treatments with radio frequency in Stamford. Radio frequency can be used in combination with other treatments which help activate the production of collagensuch as fillers with Calcium Hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) or use of Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP.
