One of the newest treatments used in cosmetic medicine for facial rejuvenation without surgery is the Radio Frequency Treatment.
This method involves the application of electromagnetic radiation to enter the deeper layers of the skin to cause a massive molecular and energetic mobilization on the tissue obtaining the stimulation of collagen production, which eliminates the signs of aging skin. The different types of RF are unipolar, bipolar radiofrecuency or tripolar radiofrecuency.
Radio Frequency is used to reduce expression lines and for the treatment of flaccidity of the face and neck. It is also ideal for post-operative treatment of facial rejuvenation.

Radio frequency generates an electric field that changes from positive to negative, causing a rotational movement of molecules that generates heat.
The types radio frequency used are the unipolar radio frequency, that produces warming in the surface of the skin; the bipolar, which produces warming in the deepest part of the dermis acting on adipose tissue and tripolar radio frequency that is a combination of both.
Because the radio frequency device has radiant heads both unipolar and bipolar, we deliver energy at different depths, and treat a variety of cellulite and facial laxity and other areas.
An oil is apply to clean the skin and then energy is apply through a treatment head that is constantly moving over the skin. The duration of treatment depends on the area treated. Once the session is over, aloe vera gel is applied on the treated areas. Its application is painless, leaves no scars or swelling and the patient can continue with their normal duties after application.
The changes are seen in the first session. In rare cases, if the collagen is very deteriorated or the skin has been abused, it may take a few more sessions (2 or 3). The radio frequency will favor the formation of new collagen fibers in the skin and subcutaneous tissue giving firmness and eliminating sagging and increasing circulation that will improve metabolism.
