The Duo features Radiofrequency skin tightening (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses radiofrequency energy to heat tissue in the dermal layer of the skin and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.
The primary purpose of nonsurgical skin tightening is to increase your skin’s collagen and tighten it as a result.
This beautiful unit includes two handpieces of different electrode designs to deliver the most optimal treatments for your clients:
What is Radiofrequency Therapy?
Radiofrequency Therapy (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses radiofrequency energy to heat tissue in the dermal layer of the skin and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.
As we get older, our bodies produce less and less collagen. This is why our skin becomes thinner and looser with age. Collagen is an essential protein your body produces and is the driving force behind your skin becoming firmer, smoother, thicker, and more youthful. While keeping the surface of your skin cool and comfortable, the RF energy heats the middle layer of the skin, called the dermis. Once the skin reaches about 115°F (use an infrared thermometer), the body releases heat-shock proteins that stimulate new collagen fibers to be created. Because of the ability of radiofrequency to reach the dermal layer of the skin, the skin is made firmer while existing collagen fibers are also strengthened.
How does Tripolar RF Tighten Skin?
This handpiece uses three electrodes to tighten the skin. Radiofrequency therapy uses currents similar to the ones found naturally in our body’s electrical circuits to cause tissues to contract, which in turn safely tighten skin and increase its contour. Powered by an algorithm, three electrodes constantly switch between serving as the grounding/active/inactive electrode. This randomization and continuous switching of electrode pairing allows for the skin to be treated more evenly all around.
When the body creates resistance to the currents, heat is generated, which strengthens and refines the underlying tissues. Because of the ability of radiofrequency to reach the dermal layer of the skin, the facial skin is made firmer while existing collagen fibers are strengthened and the production of new collagen proteins are stimulated. Aging degrades collagen proteins found naturally in our skin, so regenerating collagen production is the key ingredient to tightening the skin and therefore regaining its youthfulness. Since the time for new cell turnover is 28 days, radiofrequency treatments can be repeated regularly to achieve cumulative effects. This non-invasive treatment includes absolutely no downtime, pain, or discomfort, and works wonders at reducing cellulite all over the body and erasing the signs of aging that have accumulated over the years.
How does Four-Polar RF Tighten Skin?
Using the same technology but different method of delivery, this handpiece is especially designed to be used on smaller areas of the body, such as the arms. The Four-Polar handpiece works by alternating currents between four electrodes: two active electrodes and two inactive electrodes. This randomization and constant switching of electrode pairing allows for more even treatments throughout the face and body.
