Radio-frequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses Radio Frequency (RF) energy to heat skin with the purpose of stimulating cutaneous collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin.
The advantage of RF is its ability to deliver heat to the tissue non-specifically – unlike lasers that cause selective photothermolysis depending on the type of chromophores, RF delivers heat to the tissue based on the properties of the tissue itself, i.e. its level of electrical resistance.
We at LA’ Glam Laser & Cosmetics have developed an advanced multi-polar RF technology platform in which the energy is equally distributed between three sets of bi-polar centres (i.e. 6 polars). The advantage of this configuration is that each polar emits lower energy levels. This translates into less direct heat on the epidermis, yet higher cumulative heat delivered into the dermis layer. Furthermore, since the energy is distributed amongst the centres, it ensures that high levels of energy do not concentrate in the area with the lowest electrical resistance. This results in a highly effective treatment
that is completely pain-free.
