Radio frequency Skin Rejuvenation for Desert Skin Vlog

Do your clients have dry, crepey skin due to sun exposure? We have the perfect treatment to help you give your clients the skin of their dreams so they can look years younger. In today’s vlog, watch our very own Course Counselor, Jane, experience a Syneron radio frequency skin rejuvenation treatment with laser tech, Tracy.

Radio frequency is a treatment which sends thousands of microscopic holes into the skin causing thermal damage to stimulate collagen. The collagen rebuilds itself and improves things like texture, toning, tightening and fine lines.

“Why is it that we are trying to rebuild collagen, Tracy?” asks Louis.

“Because it breaks down over time. With our desert skin, the sun causes our skin to age a little bit quicker. So this will help to rejuvenate that collagen and elastin, to bring back more youthful looking skin,” says Tracy.

“At what age do people start losing collagen in their skin?” asks Louis.

“Everyone is a bit different. It has to do with their genetics, are they working out, are they in the sun a lot. But usually, you know, in their early to mid thirties it starts to break down. That’s when the aging process kicks in,” says Tracy.

The Benefits of Radio frequency Skin Rejuvenation

  • Radio frequency creates volume by stimulating collagen production in scars and evening out the appearance of the skin.

  • Radio frequency is the only sublative technology proven to reduce shallow to middle depth acne scars and narrow stretch marks for all skin types.

  • Radio frequency ablation resurfaces the skin,  reduces wrinkles, tightens the skin, and even lifts the skin with less downtime than traditional skin rejuvenating treatments.

Radio frequency treatments typically take between 10-20 minutes depending on the area being treated. During treatment, your client will feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are often used to reduce discomfort during treatment.

Post treatment, tone and texture improvements will be visible as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells which are produced. A typical treatment protocol is 3 – 5 treatments, 4 – 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the condition of the skin and the desired aesthetic results.
