Face lift is one of the most widespread and in-demand cosmetic surgery treatments today, but not all patients are willing to go under the surgeon's scalpel to carry it out. Only a relative few know that they don’t have to and non-surgical alternatives exist that can achieve the same results. Radiofrequency face lift is a non-invasive and painless procedure, based on the principles of the microwave oven.
During the procedure molecules become polarized under the influence of an electromagnetic field, their energy levels increase, which increases movement and vibration of the particles. Increased energy levels lead to the release of endogenous (internal) heat and cause a selective heating of the tissues to a temperature of 45-55 °C. The tissue most affected by this process is the adipose tissue. RF lifting literally melts fat. In addition to above, radiofrequency face lift stimulates cellular regeneration, proliferation of fibroblasts, collagen and elastin. The skin becomes more elastic and more toned, and all defects, such as wrinkles, furrows, and scars become less prominent, or altogether disappear. Heat also increases the permeability of cell membranes, consequently increasing the absorption of chemicals used during the procedure.
The entire technique of RF lifting becomes possible due to a simple property of the human body: the order of absorption of radio waves. Fat tissues are most absorbent, then skin, and then muscles. Because targeting adipose tissues requires less intensive radiation than other cells in the body, the procedure is performed in such a way that it only affects fat deposits, without harming skin or muscle tissues. When heated, the volume of fat cells decreases, also reducing the volume of the body. At the same time, radio waves stimulate blood circulation, which has a positive effect on cellular nutrition and respiration. Increasing the body temperature by 1 ° C accelerates metabolism by 3,6%, which helps the body to effectively expel toxins. A curious, but pleasant side effect of the procedure is that the increase in temperature induced by the RF lift activates the endogenous release of endorphins and causes muscle relaxation, giving the patient a pleasant sensation – quite the opposite of traditional (surgical) face lifts.
Indications for radiofrequency lifting
RF lift is recommended for patients aged 35 years or older to remove the external signs of aging on the face and neck, as well as to tighten the skin of the abdomen, hips, and the upper body.
Advantages of RF lifting:
- Non-invasive and painless procedure
- Effects lasting up to 1-1.5 years
- Guaranteed results
- No recovery period
- No discomfort during the procedure
