Our radio frequency devices produce an electric current through the use of an electromagnetic pulse. When this pulse passes through the skin it produces heat. Skin rejuvenation occurs as a result of this thermal or heat damage to the dermis, which is the layer of skin beneath the epidermis. Because it impedes the passing current more than most other tissue in the skin, the subcutaneous fat layer below the dermis generates greater amounts of heat and paves the way for deeper thermal effects.
During the treatment heat is applied to the dermis which modifies the original properties of collagen fibres, as they expand and contract. This reaction triggers an immediate response, leading to visible improvements. Heat also causes long-term collagen remodelling, which is why the skin continues to improve and tighten weeks after the initial treatment. The skins inflammatory response to the wounds induced by heat, leads to additional collagen synthesis as part of the healing process.
