What is RF energy?
Radiofrequency (RF) is a non-surgical method of repairing the skin, with a number of options for treatment. RF uses low-level radiation and electromagnetic waves to create heat and a thermal reaction, supporting tissue regeneration and rejuvenation.
There are a number of devices that use this form of energy:
- Thermage: This method heats the deep layers of the skin known as the dermis, which in turn stimulates the production of collagen.
- RF Microneedle: The RF energy is delivered via insulated needles to the deep dermis and thereby leads to the healing of the deep dermis layer.
- RF Single Needle: Individual RF needles can be used to treat superficial skin conditions, including milia and skin tags.
- RF Microcannula: The RF energy is delivered via a cannula (designed for accurate and finite treatment), tightening the skin from the deeper layers of the tissue.
RF devices are suitable to treat most areas of the face and body. As it is not light based, RF can also be used safely around the eye area and on all skin types.
The initial consultation with Dr Sam and the medical professionals at Samara medical and cosmetic clinics will determine which method of RF is most suitable for your unique requirements.
On the day of the procedure, and dependent on your choice of device, the probe carrying the RF energy is applied to the treatment area to create tissue regeneration through the process of collagen stimulation.
Depending on the area being treated, results can last for a few years, or even longer.
The radiofrequency energy is transmitted to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. It is sometimes used to cause tissue damage in a controlled manner, in order to bring about tissue regeneration.
All procedures are safe when performed by the trained professionals at Samara medical and cosmetic clinics. There is some healing time involved in these procedures, which can take a few days up to a couple of weeks. This will be fully explained in your consultation with Dr Sam.
The price varies depending on the treatment area and the device used.
RF face: $289 – $1299 per treatment
