Radiofrequency is a cosmetic medical treatment which exploits the capacity of high-frequency, low-intensity electric current to generate heat in the dermic-hypodermic tissues, with special handpieces for external use. The derma is the layer of the epidermis which contains fibroblasts, cells which produce collagen and elastin, responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin when they are stimulated by radiofrequency. A moderate rise in temperature at tissue level causes an increase in tissue oxygenation and in nutritional substances, along with drainage of toxins and neoangiogenesis. All these results in:
- An improvement in skin texture
- Regularisation of sebaceous secretion
- Detox and anti-edemigenous action
A radiofrequency treatment determines an immediate lifting effect which is visible from the very first session, with a long-term action on the firmness and brightness of the skin.
Radiofrequency treatment can be carried out on both the face and body and really is the only tissue lifting treatment which remains constant in time.
At facial level, it tightens the skin of both face and neck, mitigates wrinkles, redefines the facial oval, regulates sebaceous secretion and detoxes tissues.
When applied to the body, it reduces sagging, has a draining action and stimulates microcirculation, acting on the causes of cellulite.
Radiofrequency treatment does not have any particular side effects other than those common to other cosmetic medical treatments (pregnancy, breastfeeding, and autoimmune collagenopathies) and can be successfully used in conjunction with other cosmetic medical methods. It can also be carried out without problems in summer.
The frequency of the sessions is one every thirty days, with at least fifteen sessions for both face and body.
