RF Skin Tightening
Bi polar and Tri polar are radio frequency used to tighten and induce collagen production for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, acne scaring, reduce stretch marks and to minimise pores.
The radio frequency produces two or three currents depending on whether it is bi-polar or tri-polar which alternate high and low frequency currents no less than a thousand times per second. This heats up the deeper skin tissues to promote blood circulation to tighten the skin. At the same time, the cooling measures are taken on the skin surface by applying our special cooling gel.
The dermal layer of the skin is heated to maintain a normal temperature. Most of the RF energy enters the deeper dermal layer, this can be around 45 Celsius. This heat generates a focus wound healing response that can take up to 4 months to complete. During this time the dermal layer thickens and produces more collagen and the wrinkles are then pushed out so the skin becomes firmer , tightening the skin and the contours are lifted.
