RF Muscle Lift
The Ultimate Facial for Skin Lifting and Tightening
Radio Frequency sends an electrical current into your skin. This heats your tissues and kick-starts collagen production. So, over time, you build fresh collagen and elastin fibres to support your face.
The result is firmer, lifted, tighter, more radiant skin.
Heat has a detoxifying effect and increases cell metabolism. RF increases blood flow through vasodilation. Vasodilation is the widening of blood vessels. The increased circulation brings more oxygen and nutrients to the cells. It also removes waste products, such as carbon dioxide.
This means your cells’ metabolism speeds up resulting in more energy, so they work harder. This promotes skin health and gives an energy boost for dermal remodelling.
The fibroblasts will be activating so that they start producing new collagen and elastin. The result is the tightening of the skin. Often improvement is visible even after the first treatment.
RF induce tissue tightening and contour changes through dermal collagen remodeling without disruption of the overlying epidermis as a noninvasive procedure with a short recovery period and small risk of adverse effects.
RF produces heat deep in the dermis due to tissue electrical resistance.
With RF application, different levels and different degrees of heat are produced under the skin. The heat increases collagen denaturation that results in shrinkage and the desired rejuvenation effect.
The RF effect is achieved by heating the fibroblasts to such an extent that they stimulate the production of collagen and allow the collagen and elastic fibers to shrink.
As a result, the skin becomes thicker, firmer, and more tense.In RF applications, the temperature of the same tissue varies depending on the depth of the tissue, the frequency, the power of the devices, the types of the head, the maximum temperature reached, the heat exposure time, and tissue hydration as well as tissue type and age. Collagen is composed of triple helix of proteins connected by interchain hydrogen bonds. When collagen is heated with RF, the bonds are affected, triple helix degrades, collagen part is denatured and contracted. The tissue is burnt as a result of overheating. Ideal shrinkage temperatures range from 57°C to 61°C, but the time of the heat applied is important as well.
The effect of mechanical stress on fibroblasts stimulates extracellular matrix remodeling, which occurs after the contraction phase of wound healing.
It has been shown that mechanical stretching causes an increase in Type I and Type III collagen expression,demonstrating that mechanical stress alone can also act on collagen and skin without heat effects.
Fibrous septa: Heating deeper tissue disrupts fibrous septa, and the result is three‑dimensional tissue contracture. With the shrinkage and contracture of the fibrous septa between the subdermal fat tissues, there is not only a tightening in the horizontal plane of the skin but also a shortening in the vertical plane (Z‑dimension).
Capillary blood flow and adipocytes: RF heating increases local capillary blood flow which increases adipocyte metabolism. Moreover, nonthermal effects of RF include adipocyte stimulation, leading to lipase‑mediated degradation of triglycerides or even adipocyte apoptosis.
The heating effect increases microcirculation, homogenizes subdermal fat, and increases skin elasticity.
Thermal exposure at 43°C for 10 min results in a delayed adipocyte cellular death,and thermal exposure at 45°C for 3 min results in a loss of cell viability in 60% of adipocytes. In vivo fat cell lipolysis is enhanced by increased delivery of catecholamine hormones, which is improved by enhancement of blood flow.
Fibrous septa contract to inward as deeper effect of RF.RF stimulates neocollagenesis, elastin, and ground substance production, which results in delayed dermal tightening and contour changes. Nonthermal biologic effects occur in cell membrane receptors and channels, which induce cytoprotective growth factor synthesis, heat shock genes, synthesis of mucopolysaccharide and elastic fibers (improve firmness and elasticity of skin), increase enzyme activity, transcription of specific genes, mRNA expression.
Radiofrequency is considered a safe and non-invasive method for treating cutaneous sagging and for improvement of the body and facial contours.The effects of radiofrequency are based on the volumetric heating of the deep dermis, heating the collagen and elastic fibers.
The heat generated by the radiofrequency leads to the contraction of collagen, improving the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
Furthermore, the heating induces the activation of fibroblasts, leading to neocollagenization (altered in diameter, thickness and frequency), with subsequent tissue remodeling. A number of studies monitored the action of the RF generated heat in the induction of collagen contraction, collagenesis and elastogenesis, with the resulting remodeling taking place during the treatment and for months after the application.
The medical use of radio frequency (RF) is based on an oscillating electrical current forcing collisions between charged molecules and ions, which are then transformed into heat. RF heating occurs irrespective of chromophore or skin type and is not dependent on selective photothermolysis. RF can be delivered using monopolar, bipolar, and unipolar devices, and each method has theoretical limits of depth penetration.
A variant of bipolar delivery is fractional RF delivery. In monopolar configurations, RF will penetrate deeply and return via a grounding electrode.
Multiple devices are available and are detailed later in the text. RF thermal stimulation is believed to result in a microinflammatory process that promotes new collagen.
With bipolar RF, the electrical range is delivered from a probe with two symmetrical electrodes (one positive; the other negative) placed over the treatment area.
The alternating current of energy goes back and forth between these two points.The depth of heating and tissue reached depends on the distance between the two points, but is typically between 2 to 4mm. Overall, bipolar RF penetrates a smaller volume of tissue at a more superficial depth. While less penetrating, bipolar RF is more suitable for sensitive areas like the facial area.
Microcurrent uses low-voltage electricity to stimulate the facial muscles, like a "workout" for the face.
The goal is to encourage the muscles to look more defined, growth of ATP, and collagen development.
Known as a non-invasive facelift, and a great Botox alternative, microcurrent facials introduce a low-grade electrical current delivered through a small machine onto the face muscles. The muscles contract and are meant to be trained—just like a gym workout—to lift and sculpt the face. Microcurrent is used to lift the eyebrows, define cheekbones, tighten and firm skin, and stimulate collagen growth.
You know it actually works because it has been used medically since the 1980s, approved by the FDA as a muscle stimulator to treat Bell's palsy and muscle paralysis. After noticing improved results in patients with atrophied, sagging facial muscles, microcurrent was then adopted as an anti-aging tool.
Young skin contains a large amount of hyaluronic acid, which declines with age.
Since the body requires it to help bind water, the skin’s ability to retain water is further reduced and as a result the skin becomes drier, thinner, and less able to restore itself. This combined with a lack of collagen formation, and GAGS concentration (Glycosaminoglycan) results in loss of hydration, integrity and reduced skin tone.
All this starts to show significantly in the skin from the age of forty to fifty, microcurrent has the ability to continue & speed up all the functions inside the cell by mimicking it with the body’s own current.
This subsensory current normalizes the ordinary activity taking place within the cell if it has been injured or otherwise compromised.
The external addition of microcurrent will increase the production of ATP, protein synthesis, oxygenation, ion exchange, absorption of nutrients, elimination of waste products, and neutralizes the oscillating polarity of deficient cells. Homeostasis is restored. The biologically sensitive stimulation effect of microcurrent picks up where the body’s own electrical current fails, as the human body must adhere to the natural law of electricity which is: “electricity must take path of least resistance.” Therefore, its electrical current is destined to move around an injury or defect, rather than through it. By normalizing cell activity, inflammation is reduced while collagen producing cells are increased. Healthy cell metabolism creates a healthy, pain free internal environment. Microcurrent causes the following: 35% increase in blood circulation 40% increase in Gluconeogenesis (production of new glucose) 45% increase in the number of elastin fibers in the dermis 50% increase in the length of the elastin fibers 10% increase in collagen thickness in the connective tissue 35% increase in the number of blood vessels 28% increase lymphatic drainage.
Microcurrent works by targeting the muscles under the skin that cause our facial skin to wrinkle and sag.
As we age, our muscles become accustomed to certain expressions and tend to "stick" in these positions. A great example of this is the furrow between the eyebrows. At the same time, other muscles in our face are hardly ever used, and they begin to atrophy, which leads to sagging. An example of this can often be seen around the jaw lines, chins and necks where we tend to develop sagging or loss of definition as we get older.
Microcurrent facial toning devices send soft, gentle waves to the muscles in your face that help relax overly-tightened muscles and strengthen under-worked muscles. In essence, microcurrent facial toning "re-educates" the facial muscles and works to restore them back to their original state. When this happens the face is lifted, firmed and toned to a more youthful appearance. At the same time, the microcurrent improves circulation to your face which stimulates production of collagen, improves tone and texture, and eliminates fine lines.
