What is radiofrequency (skin tightening)?
Many of us stay away from plastic surgeries for reasons such as costs and possible scars, as they will affect the flow of our lives. However, there are some situations that require surgery. It is possible to take precautions with non-surgical procedures before reaching this point. As the mesh tissue under the skin (collagen, hylronic acid, elastin) loses its function over time, sagging and wrinkles occur. If there are such conditions on the non-advanced skin surface, you can try radiofrequency application.
What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency; It is an electromagnetic energy that travels through the skin. It provides regeneration in collagen fibers that provide tension in the skin. The tissue that provides tightness and tension in the body is called connective tissue. The cells that make up this tissue are fibroblast cells. Fibroblast activation accelerates with the heat generated. Radio frequency activates the water molecules in the cells. Its effect can be increased more by supporting it with an anti-aging effective product. The device has two heads. Bipolar and Unipolar. Face applications are made with the Bipolar head and body applications are made with the Unipolar head. It is very important to know the muscle aspects in this process to stretch and recover the skin.
How is Radiofrequency System Application Made?
The skin is relaxed and cleansed.
A personalized cap is attached to the system and appropriate doses are determined.
The application is completed by making transitions to the problematic areas in more than one muscle direction. It is most commonly applied to the face and neck area.
The process takes about 30-40 minutes. Half of the face is done first and then the other half. It should be done on both sides at the same time.
Slight redness may be seen at the end of the procedure. Therefore, sunscreens should be used for 3-4 days after the procedure. It is recommended not to take a bath, sea or sun bath on the day after the procedure.
How should the session intervals be?
