Radiofrequency treatment : medical treatement

1

Radiofrequency uses electric current to penetrate and heats the skin’s depths, without overheating the epidermis.
This current induces electrons in the body, and natural resistance to their movement creates heat. Using good equipment, the effect can take place at a depth of 15-20mm, or even deeper.
At the end of the treatment, the surface temperature should be 42-43°C, which roughly corresponds to a working tissue temperature of 52-62°C. This increases micro-circulation and cellular activity, notably among the fibroblasts which produce the skin cells.
Depending on the number of electrodes, radiofrequency can be monopolar (first picture), bipolar (second picture) or multipolar (third picture).

RADIOFREQUENCY DEVICES

2 (10)

Several devices exist on the market, they are not technically equivalent.
It is necessary that the apparatus is powerful to be able to create high temperatures and that it delivers energies that can arrive in depth.
Personally I use endymed technology.

Which gives the possibility to use several applicators according to the indication, the result that one wants to obtain and the anatomy of the person.

INDICATIONS

3 (9)

The main indications are body contouring, cellulite reduction and skin laxity. Moreover, improving blood circulation promotes cellular metabolism and fat removal.
The various handpieces allow the different areas of the face and body to be treated. The treatment parameters are personalized according to the area of the body and the different types of skin.
All skin types can be treated, even tanned or dark skin.
The areas that are generally treated are: the back, the arms, the thighs, the knees, the buttocks, the belly, the face.

SESSION

A fine layer of special gel is applied to the skin, and using circular movements the temperature progressively increases and the skin reddens. The treatment continues until the skin reaches 42°C (this temperature is regulated using a thermometer, but an experienced practitioner can do without it).
As soon as this temperature is reached, the circular movements must stop, and instead movement focuses on following the skin’s tension lines.  At 42°C, collagen fibres can be realigned to create a lifting effect.
A weaker intensity must be used nearer to the bone-structure.

The treatment is pleasant and painless. There are no side effects. You can resume your activity immediately after treatment.

SESSION PLAN

You should plan for 4 to 6 sessions, with weekly intervals between each treatment.
Don’t forget that slackening skin is a natural part of the ageing process. While the effects of the first set of sessions will last about a year, one treatment every 4-6 months is necessary to maintain the initial result.
