How does RF energy work?
The epidermis is the top layer of skin. Underneath this top layer is the dermis. Within the dermis and the underlying subcutaneous layer of fat, there are many collagen fibers. Collagen provides support and firmness to the skin, but the ageing process, UV sun exposure and smoking causes weakening of collagen fibers. With age, there is also a slower regeneration of the collagen.
RF works by heating the collagen to a specific temperature, which results in two effects. There is an initial tightening of existing fibers and over time, there is also synthesis of new collagen. A series of 4-8 RF treatments can tighten skin, giving it a smoother, younger appearance.
Simply heating the epidermis is not effective in affecting collagen fibers because the heat does not penetrate deep enough. However, FDA-approved RF devices deliver just the correct amount of heat to the appropriate layer of the skin.
