What is radiofrequency
Radiofrequency is a safe form of non ionising energy which has been used in the medical field for a long time for investigative and treatment purposes. In aesthetic medicine it is used to gently heat the tissues to break up collagen hence stimulating formation of new healthy collagen and thus cause skin tightening
What can rf treatment help with
- Fine lines and wrinkles,
- Sagging skin &
- Acne scarring
- Enhance the effects of other aesthetic treatments
What is used at Aureumskin?
We use two forms of skin rejuvenating RF treatment s Forma and Fractora
What is forma
Forma™ delivers a non-invasive method of gentle, controlled heating of the skin using bipolar radiofrequency energy. The target area is the deeper layer of skin called dermis.. This improves the elastin and collagen production of the skin . Forma™ and Fractora also have the added benefit of a built-in temperature feedback safety measure which constantly checks and adjusts the temperature of the treated area.This safety features thus makes sure that the energy is evenly distributed and hence does not overheat the skin.
What areas can be treated?
Commonly treated areas on the face include:
- Crows feet
- Upper eyelids
- Lower eyelids
- Nasolabial folds
- Smile lines and neck
Can this be used in combination with other treatments/procedures?
Forma can be used in combination with most other aesthetic treatments and in fact can enhance their effects.
Fractora delivers radiofrequency energy through tiny pinpoint needles slightly deeper but just under the skin .Hence the tightening effect is not restricted to the top layer of the skin, making this treatment more effective .The energy is delivered in a “fractionated” way which scatters the heat evenly and allows the skin to heal with minimum downtime.
Numbing cream is applied to the skin for 30-60 minutes before the treatment. Radiofrequency is delivered through a sterile disposable tip with tiny needles is pressed against the skin.
