Radio Frequency

SKIN TIGHTENING AND BODY CONTOURING

Radio Frequency Treatments are among the most requested aesthetic therapies today. NuEra with Focal RF Technology is highly customizable with a wide range of frequencies and hand pieces that deliver fast, comfortable, non invasive treatments. This results in clients achieving their desired improved appearance while ensuring safety and efficacy due to the built in temperature control feature.

What is Radio Frequency Therapy?

This therapy involves electromagnetic radiation delivered at a specific frequency range, also known as radio waves. Electromagnetic radiation surrounds us, coming from such sources as lightning, the stars, the sun, and our bodies. They span quite a range of frequencies and wavelengths. Frequency relates to the number of cycles formed in one second and is measured in Hertz. Wavelength describes the distance between two wave peaks.

Radio frequency is divided into bands ranging from low to high. Low frequencies, such as those used for sending data and voice communications travel longer distances. High frequencies, on the other hand, transmit just a short distance. Higher frequencies are used to treat the human body in both medicine and aesthetics. RF therefore moves freely through tissues and any sources of resistance generate heat. The amount of heat created depends on the specific tissue reached.

Effects of Radio Frequency Treatments:

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 degradation 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:

  • Improve skin elasticity
  • Tighten and firm tissues
  • Improve overall texture and volume

Benefits of Radio Frequency:

Tightening/ Contouring – Collagen and elastin scaffolding supports the dermis and epidermis which keeps the skin supple, bouncy, and firm. From age 25 on, we lose between 1 and 2% of our natural collagen each year. This results in dullness, sagging, and textural issues. Radiofrequency treatments can not only tighten the skin, but also restores contours to create toned, firm, youthful-looking skin.

Facial Contouring – RF is well-suited to the chin, neck, and jawline. It can be used to tighten:

  • Sags between the nose and mouth
  • Bags and wrinkles under and above the eyes
  • Drooping brow lines

Body Contouring – RF treatment removes fat and improves tone without any downtime or pain. This treatment reduces cellulite, boosts collagen production and gets rid of fatty deposits that fail to go with exercise. If you have sagging skin on abdomen, back, upper arms or legs, radiofrequency body contouring is meant for you. As opposed to other liposuction procedures, this technology dissolves fat cells and tightens collagen from the patient’s skin. This procedure results in a natural contoured body.

Long Lasting Results – RF triggers the skin’s internal healing processes to stimulate collagen and elastin production

Increased HA Production – HA (Hyaluronic Acid) works in tandem with collagen and elastin. Where those two fibers increase, HA is sure to follow. HA molecules naturally attract and bind to water molecules. It is a key component of skin’s natural moisture barrier, and ramping up levels of HA can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, soothe redness, and help skin look plumper and moisturized.

Lunchtime Procedure – The average session lasts between 20 and 45 minutes. We will apply a protective gel to your skin to facilitate treatment. The handpiece is then moved across your with deft efficiency. Your treatment is unique to you; we customize the depth of thermal energy to ensure we meet your individual needs.

Highly Comfortable Treatment – One of the most appealing aspects of RF therapy is its non-invasive and gentle nature. While the energy heats and ultimately tightens tissues, it does so without damaging your skin’s top layer. There are no needles involved. Patients describe sessions as relaxing and enjoyable, comparing them to a hot stone massage. Some even fall asleep!

Success of RF Treatments:

The key parameter that determines the success of RF treatments is the ability to target the treatment to the right tissue depth- and this can vary between people and between treatment areas. The ground breaking technology on NuEra Tight offers unparalleled treatment depth control; it targets tissue at the exact depth which yields the best results, so the results last longer and look more natural.

With Focal RF Technology our providers can utilize multiple RF frequencies to dial in the depth of energy penetration accounting for tissue thickness variations between body areas.

470KHz- Deep heating

1MHz & 2MHz- Medium deep heating

4MHz & 6MHz – Superficial heating and penetration

This treatment is personalized based on body type and skin. This is a non invasive treatment with no downtime. It delivers natural looking results after 4-6 treatments. The NuEra treatments feel like a comfortable hot stone massage.
