What is RF? How does it work?
During the session, the RF computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area. Patients feel a warming sensation as the Energy is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. The ability to focus the Energy on specific areas at the targeted depth of penetration makes this treatment a highly effective aesthetic solution. The device engages the cooling system to heat deep tissue as its constant monitoring of the skin’s temperature facilitates a comfortable, even treatment. To favourably influence the upper skin layers, only controlled heating is engaged to redefine loose skin and smooth wrinkles. Thus, Radio Frequency causes the collagen supporting tissue to remodel, thereby stimulating and strengthening the collagen network to improve skin laxity and texture.
How many Radio Frequency RF treatments will I need? How long do the results last?
The recommended course of treatment is generally two to four sessions, one every 7 -14 days. You can have additional treatments if desired. Patients show persistent results at least six months after the Exilis treatment.
Radio Frequency (RF), Is it safe?
This technology has been tested in clinical studies and proven to be safe and effective. It has been cleared by the FDA in the U.S. for use in dermatologic and aesthetic procedures with indications for non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and skin laxity.
What about recovery after Radio Frequency RF?
Some pinkness on the treated area may last for about 15-30 minutes. Patients should increase water intake on the day of treatment and the day after, and should engage in light exercise such as walking to enhance cosmetic results.
What are the side effects?
There have been no significant side effects reported RF treatment. This treatment is fairly superficial. Always choose a credible clinic.
