Radio frequency Skin Tightening and rejuvenation procedure

What is Radio Frequency?

Radio Frequency or ‘RF’ is a form of electromagnetic energy and has been safely used in the medical field for many years. RF is now utilized in cosmetic procedures. It reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, toning and tightening the skin.

How does it work?

 A metal handpiece is moved in a circular motion over the skin. This delivers RF waves through the outer layer, or epidermis, to deliver heat to the deeper layer of skin. This is called the dermis. Thermal energy is produced within the dermis withthe following results.

  • Skin Tightening – the immediate contraction of collagen fibers causing them to shrink into a more compact form.
  • Skin Rejuvenation – new collagen deposition over the next 2-4 months.
  • Improved Skin Health -heating of the dermal layer causes increased blood and lymph flow.

 

Which areas can be treated?

The whole face can be treated, along with the neck & jawline. Skin tightening on the body can also be achieved on the tummy, thighs, buttocks and upper arms.

 

How long do treatments take & what does RF feel like?

On average, treatments last 30-45 minutes, with additional time at the initial treatment for a consultation. Depending which area is being treated, a slight warmth may be experienced in the treatment site.

 

How many treatments are recommended?

An initial course of six treatments is recommended, spaced 2 weeks apart. Some clients will see subtle results immediately after treatment. However, this is dependent on the quality of the skin being treated and the age of the client. Other older clients with UV damage will require one or more courses to maximize longevity of the procedure.

We recommend maintenance treatments. after an initial course. These treatments can be conducted every 2 to 6 months or annually depending on  the skin, the area being treated and the desired results.

 

Is RF suitable for everyone?

There are some medical circumstances when RF treatments are not recommended. RF treatments cannot be performed on the stomach of woman during pregnancy, menstruation or if an IUD is present.

RF treatments cannot be performed on or over body implants made of metal, silicone or plastic, hormone implants, dermal fillers or on anyone who has a medical / electronic implant such as a pacemaker or hearing aid.

Written consent is required from a doctor or specialist if there are serious medical issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes or epilepsy.

 

You should get the customer to sign a form with the following text

Pre-Treatment

The use of prescription strength skin care products such as Retin A, Retrieve & Stevia needs to cease 2 weeks prior to treatment.

Injection of muscle relaxant products must occur a minimum of 2 weeks prior to treatment.

Use of Benzyl Peroxide products must cease one week prior to treatment.

A period of two weeks is required after IPL or advanced exfoliation treatments.

Clients must not shave or wax 24 hours prior to RF treatment.

 

Post Treatment

Initially after treatment the skin may appear a little pink & feel warm in the area treated. However, this will subside within 30-60 minutes.

Use only products recommended by your practitioner & avoid the use of any strong topical products.

Other cosmetic procedures must be avoided for at least 2 weeks after RF treatment.

 

Homecare Advice

It is highly recommended to commence the use of medical grade skincare. That which is high in active ingredients such as vitamins A, B & C, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. This boosts skin health and optimises results.

The use of sun protection is also highly recommended for the long-term benefit & protection of the skin.

RF Skin Tightening

RF skin tightening is a new technique for skin lifting and contouring with no surgery. Amazing results are seen after one or two treatments and can last for up to 5 years. RF treatments are suited for people who may have experienced skin sagging and lack of firmness resulting in looser and wrinkled appearance.

RF Skin tightening works to generate new collagen for up to 6 months after the initial treatment. It tightens the deeper dermis resulting in an improvement in skin texture, tone and contour. RF skin treatment is perfectly suited to treat the sagging of the jawline, face, eyes, tummy arms and legs. There is no downtime and treatments are pain free.

How does it work?

RF skin tightening is a bi-polar radio frequency sound wave. It is safe and non-surgical, gently heating the collagen fibers and immediately tightening them. New collagen is stimulated by the fibroblasts in the deeper layer of the skin over the next few months. The radio frequency also improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage. This encourages better oxygen supply and toxin removal to further reduce the effects of ageing.

How does the treatment feel?

The gentle warmth experienced during treatment is similar to a hot-stone massage. It is very soothing and pain free. There is an immediate improvement of the tightening of the lax or loose skin. The improvement continues for up to 6 months after the treatment.

Do I need more than one treatment?

RF treatment is a gentle non-surgical procedure and as such your technician will gently treat your problem areas.

It is advisable to have a few treatments over a 6-8 week period for the ultimate results. This allows the deeper layers to rejuvenate and regenerate.

Summary of Ultrasonic Cavitation System

Ultrasonic Cavitation system uses 40KHz. Ultrasound’s cavitation effect is created through the biology of Micro- mechanical action, Thermal action and Chemical action.

We can treat localized fat cells on abdomen, arms, hips, buttocks, inner and outer side of thighs.

The treatments are painless and not invasive with no down time.

Passing the ultrasonic cavitation treatment hand piece over the area will subject it to cavitation, induced by the rhythm of compressive waves and expansion of ultrasounds which generate a shock pressure responsible for the break down of the fat cells. We can say that micro bubbles are created and they break down the fat cell.

The breakdown of fat cells during the treatment turns them into triglycerides. These are carried by the lymphatic and venous system or are used as energy by the body. The larger part is then eliminated by the renal system, while most are then processed by the liver.

At the end of the cavitation treatment, the lymph and toxins are removed with the vacuum hand piece. It is recommended to use this following the cavitation as a mechanical lymphatic drainage.

PLEASE NOTE: Most cavitation heads have low doses of RF built in. It is not recommended to do RF on the same area as Cavitation on the same day. You may burn your client or cause a reverse effect with RF skin tightening by over heating the cells. Clients must also be aware not to get UV on the areas for the weeks of treatment for the same reason as cells can be over exposed to heat.

It is advised that clients do regular exercise or activities. They should follow a low-fat diet in order to facilitate elimination and have long lasting faster results.  Clients will see results within the week usually 3-5 days depending on metabolism, age and lifestyle factors. It is recommended that your client has at least 7-10 treatments to see results.

ULTRASONIC CAVITATION & VACUUM TREATMENT

When using the Ultrasonic Cavitation 40Hz Hand piece, it is recommended you treat an A4 size or smaller in any one session. Make sure you cover the treatment area with gel. Make note of how much gel you are using as not using enough Conductive Gel can blow a fuse in the 40Hz Cavitation Hand piece.

DO NOT press start until the hand piece has contact with the skin.

When using the Vacuum hand piece make sure you smear water soluble oil all over the treatment area. Too much oil will result in clogging up the hand piece.

The Vacuum Lymphatic Massage hand piece is recommended to be used for 10 minutes after a cavitation treatment. This helps with the elimination process. NOTE: more gel/ less oil

Never do treatments, on head, neck and chest.

This is a basic outline and is subject always to the professional discretion.

For 40K Cavitation, we recommend one 20-40 minute session per week for 7-10 weeks in total and then for maintenance, one session per month for 3 months to maintain and achieve the desired results

The equipment must be used according to this scheme. Not allowed to use the 40 KHZ Cavitation system in the breasts, neck and face.

NOTE- Neck and Face are suitable for Bipolar RF treatment.

TAKE PHOTOS BEFORE AND AFTER EVERY TREATMENT

For Procedure

Apply gel on the area adjust the energy and RF levels. Since the average fat thickness is different on every area, the time, energy and levels will vary. Testing the feeling of the patient is imperative. Start low and move up in levels of energy and RF.

Vaccum after cavitation (for experienced massage therpists only)

Lymph flow on the back side of body

    • From waist to abdomen
    • From hip to mid line
    • From side of the to back
    • From back side of leg to lymph node

 

Lymph flow on the front side of body

    • From upper abdomen to lymph node of oxter
    • From lower abdomen to lymph node of inguen
    • From thigh to lymph node of inguen

40K Fat Cavitation

The Vacuum Ultrasound Cavitation slimming machine applies the Cavitation theory, using the 40 KHz ultasound. This creates intense vibration, which causes a breakdown of the fat tissues, getting rid of the fat cells. It can effectively break down stubborn and deep fat, decreasing cellulite.

The fat implodes. This means the fat explodes inside the cell and the whole cell itself.

Exercising breaks down the fat inside the cell but not the actual cell itself. So Fat Cavitation in combination with exercise is a great option.

The vacuum suction can promote fatty tissue and overall tissue liquid flow. This helps the drainage of fatty acids, waste and toxins through the lymphatic system. The vacuum function will speed up excretion of toxins and waste, while increasing blood flow in the area.
