Saggy, loose skin and wrinkles make people conscious about their aging skin primarily when these signs depict the age more than the real age. But the good news for such people is that in this era of innovations a variety of aesthetic treatments available and one can get rid of these skin aging changes. Among such procedures, you must have heard about radiofrequency skin tightening, which is effective and have many other benefits that we are going to discuss in this article.
Role of Radio Frequency in Skin Tightening
Radiofrequency is the use of electric current of very low voltage which penetrates deep into the skin and removes wrinkles and sags. But what is the mechanism by which radiofrequency does this? A radiofrequency device delivers electric current from its electrodes to the skin. This current heats the tissues beneath the skin and stimulates collagen and elastin. These two things are known to make skin tight and firm. With age, the collagen and elastin are reduced, causing aging of the skin. The heat from radiofrequency does two things to give tight, firm, and youthful skin. Firstly it stimulates the subdermal production of new collagen and elastin. Secondly, it tightens the collagen which is already present but is not as tight it must be reviving the skin tightness.
Types of Radio Frequency Used in Skin Tightening
There are two types of radiofrequency used in skincare.
- Monopolar energy travels between two electrodes which are distant and the heat penetrate up to 20mm and affect both skin and subcutaneous fat.
- Bipolar energy travels a shorter distance which is only 2mm to 4mm because two electrodes are closer to each other.
In both these types, the current is delivered to the skin in a controlled manner to get the desired results.
At-Home Radio Frequency Devices
Many radiofrequency devices are available in the market to be used at home safely for tightening the skin. But it is to be kept in mind that the results at home may differ from those which you get in dermatologists clinic because the device to be used at home is programmed to deliver less power. You must use them daily or weekly to get the desired skin tightness and firmness.
