Monopolar RF Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Face Lift With 5 Tips
In Monopolar RF devices, the poles are located quite far apart from each other usually, the “inactive pole” (or grounding pad) is placed at the back of the body. In contrast, the “active pole” (the applicator used on the target area) is used over the target zone. As a result, the current has no choice but to traverse through ALL the skin layers after entering the skin, travel through the body to the other pole, and exit there.
This means that with monopolar RF, and depending on some other factors too, we can treat not only the skin surface (epidermis) but also the middle skin layer (dermis – responsible for skin tightening), the deepest skin layer (hypodermis – where our cellulite is formed) and even the subcutaneous fat deposits below the skin itself.
Monopolar RF allows us the ability to go much deeper with the treatment.
Radio Frequency is a revolutionary treatment that firms, tightens, and lifts the skin without going under the knife. The treatment is non-invasive, so it is ideal for those who either don’t want or do not believe they are old enough for surgical procedures. Unlike other ‘non-surgical face-lift’ treatments on the market, radiofrequency stimulates the skin’s natural collagen renewal, resulting in smoother, tighter, and younger-looking skin. And the best thing is – Radio Frequency delivers excellent, visible results from the very first treatment. The treatment is suitable for everybody, especially those targeting fine lines and wrinkles or excess skin.
Radio Frequency is a relaxing treatment that involves the application of a cosmetic gel and a warm wand passing over the skin in sweeping circular motions. The wand gently heats the lower levels of the skin to approximately 40°c; this tricks the brain into thinking there has been a potential injury and stimulates a healing response. This, in turn, causes increased collagen production and tightening of elastin fibers. The tightening of elastin fibers is instant, meaning the skin appears tighter and lifted from the first treatment. The gentle heat also promotes fat cell reduction. A course of 6 treatments is recommended for optimum results. Ideally, this should be two treatments per week for three weeks. After completing your course, it is recommended to have a maintenance session every 4-6 weeks. You will continue to see results for up to 3 months after the treatment course has ended. This is perfectly normal as it can take the collagen time to reproduce. The effects of Radio Frequency can last for up to 2 years.
