The 411 On Radio-Frequency Skin Tightening
At this point, we should all know that the decline of collagen causes signs of aging to appear.
Whether they begin to show up later in life or prematurely, is entiruely up to you and the choices you make daily on a daily basis will reflect that.
And the single most important way to reverse aging is with collagen and elastin regeneration, as it is responsible for giving our skin the plump, moisturized, taut look we long for.
Thankfully, a skin treatment previously only found in dermatology clinics has been deemed a game changer for the ant-aging market.
It’s called Radio Frequency Technology, or RFT for short.
Radio-Frequency is non-invasive and used to eliminate signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging among other things. RFT can be found in medical offices, as well as something as your cell phone or microwave.
And no, it does not cause cancer or fill your skin with radiation!
You’ll be pleased to hear that yes- RF is FDA approved, and has been since 2002!
RFT is the preferred treatment by dermatolofists to stimulate the production of protein peptides like collagen and elastin naturally, below the surface of the skin (known as the epidermis).
RFT is popular in high end med spas and offered as an alternative to Juvederm or Botox, for those who have an aversion to needles and want a natural solution for their aging skin.
So, What Exactly Is Radio-Frequency Technology?
Radio-Frequency Technology is a non-invasive, skin treatment that lifts, tightens, and smoothens the skin.
This works by sending radio waves through our skin to the fourth layer, known as the dermis.
When doing so, our bodies wound healing is triggered, prompting a heightening production of those essential proteins to fill our face with life like collagen and elastin.
Not only that, but when pairing RF with our skincare regimen, we allow for a four times high absorption rate for our favorite creams and serums.
And the reason that this treatment has gone under the radar for decades is because it was anywhere from $600 to $1200 per treatment up until now at med spas or dermatologist offices around the world.
How Does Radio-Frequency Work?
Radio-Frequency Technology works by sending heat waves at 104-107 degrees fahrenheit (or 40-42 degrees celsius if that's your thing) to target collagen and elastin proteins that have been damaged over time by over exposure to the sun, as well as our natural aging processes.
The heat basically stimulates your body to produce more collagen, triggering the body’s wound healing process which provides an instant lift of the skin as well as extra collagen and elastin generation over the course of the next few months.
This treatment is perfect for those stubborn frown lines or the droopy skin around your neck. It gives all the benefits of filler or botox without the chemicals, making this a great choice for people who want to try less invasive treatments.
What Are The Benefits?
RFT Is amazing for achieving plumpness in the skin, as it works to constantly aid in collagen restoration and healing destroyed collagen cells.
And, as collagen and elastin keep regenerating the skin is tightened instantly removing fine lines and wrinkles.
RFT also lifts droopy skin, caused by the breakdown of elastin due to aging, sun damage, and other factors including stress.
It is important to wear sunscreen to protect the skin, as well as prevent any new wrinkles or dark spots from appearing.
Radio Frequency technology is a perfect alternative to invasive procedures to eliminate visible signs of aging.
Wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, dull skin, and thinking skin are all signs of insufficient collagen and elastin, and this treatment does just the job to replenish these proteins.
The added bonus of reversing sun damage and healing destroyed collagen cells make this treatment top of the line and well worth the try if you do not want fillers or Botox.
