Radio Frequency Facials: Everything You Need to Know About This Lunch Break Facelift

Radio Frequency (RF) technology is hailed as one of best non-invasive beauty ‘tweakments’ of the 21st century. Also dubbed as the ‘lunch break facelift’, it utilizes thermal energy to heat the skin that can trigger collagen production as well as skin tightening and slimming.

What exactly is Radio Frequency?

Radio frequency energy, which is another term for radio waves, is type of energy that belongs to the electromagnetic spectrum alongside your X-rays and gamma rays as well as your body heat, sunlight, and even sound waves from our electronic devices.

RF energy is measured in wavelengths or in frequency which is expressed in units called hertz (Hz).

How does RF facial procedure work?

RF facials are administered by using a handheld device to deliver thermal energy to the deep layers of the skin. This is an electrical-induced, low-frequency heat energy as opposed to light-induced, high-frequency heat energy from laser facial treatments.

RF aesthetic techniques stimulate sub-dermal collagen and elastic production to reduce wrinkles and sagging, to lift and tighten facial features, and to minimize the appearance of puffiness of skin.

This type of non-invasive beauty technique is one of the most requested among women of a certain age who want to achieve firm, toned, and youthful looking skin without going under the knife.

Is RF facial safe?

Because high frequency waves are used in lasers to emit light energy during a facial treatment, it is possible that the skin is exposed to UV rays or that it can cause some damage to skin that contains more melanin.

The heat emitted during RF facials have low frequency waves so there is no risk of UV exposure during deep skin penetration – and because RF is ‘melanin-blind’, this type of beauty procedure is safe for all skin types.

What happens during RF facial treatments?

RF facials can stimulate the natural renewal of elastin and collagen that can help smoothen skin texture and make facial features more contoured. This can also lead to a boost of oxygen levels and increased blood circulation that can eliminate dry, dull, tired-looking skin. Used in conjunction with beauty serums, masks, and creams, an RF facial can help in better absorption of the product and maximize its benefits in the long run.

Are there any side effects?

RF facial procedures require almost no downtime or post-treatment skin care. However, the skin might experience redness or irritation immediately after the procedure, but this is typically minimal and short-lived, depending on your skin’s sensitivity level.

Side effects such as thermal burns and subcutaneous fat loss can occur, but this can only happen if the device is not used correctly.

You can almost completely mitigate all risks by allowing a professional skincare provider to perform the RF facial procedure. If you are a licensed esthetician who wants to harness the power of radio frequency energy to help your clients celebrate their own beauty at any age, choose the TE 360 device from TEI SPA BEAUTY.
