Face and Body Sculpting: Tune into the Radio Frequency of Youth!

author: Maria Ilieva, Esteline Clinic

Radiofrequency lifting is a non-surgical method. It improves skin texture. It is extremely effective for tightening the contour of the face and shaping the body.

Radio frequency works by generating heat in the three layers of the skin (epidermis, dermis and hypodermis). Heat increases local metabolism and improves blood and lymph circulation. This leads to the stimulation of fibroblasts responsible for the synthesis of collagen and elastin. The result that is achieved is smoother and more elastic skin, without surgical intervention and a recovery period.

The immediate effect of radiofrequency lifting is the visible refreshing of the skin, noticeable immediately after the procedure. However, it takes between three and six months to achieve a maximum, impressive result, as the accumulation of collagen is a long-term process. The retention of the effect is from one to two years, depending on daily care, maintenance therapies and the genetic predisposition of the skin to aging. Usually 4-5 procedures are recommended every 21 days, as long as one cycle of cell regeneration lasts.

All problem areas of the face and body can be treated with radio frequency: the cheeks, the double chin, fine wrinkles can be removed, and the facial contour can be shaped.

When the treated areas are on the body, we might describe the procedure and its results as “needle-free liposuction.” Abdomen, thighs, arms can be treated – all areas with localized fat deposits. Unlike liposuction, however, radio frequency sculpts the body without sagging skin, what’s more, it smoothes and improves its elasticity.

Radio frequency is not applied to areas with varicose veins, active allergies and burns on the skin, in the presence of open or fresh wounds. Not recommended for pregnant women or during menstruation. The procedure is also contraindicated in persons with medical metal prostheses or pacemakers.
