During treatment, RF stimulates structures under the skin and the heat produced causes targeted, controlled damage. Heating skin to around 152 degrees F prompts the best results, and in turn, collagen and elastin both undergo regenesis causing the collagen matrix to shrink and contract. The skin then lifts and tightens to deliver a more youthful appearance.
The body enters a healing as fibroblast cells found in the skin’s deepest layers produce brand new collagen and elastin fibers. This increase is known as dermal remodeling and works to:
