5 Quick Facts About radio frequency

  • radio frequency is neither a laser or light-based device. Radio frequency is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency (RF). This treatment works by delivering uniform heat at a controlled depth into the deeper layers of the skin. Each pulse delivers radiofrequency energy via a grid of matrix spots. Fibroblasts activated within the treated area signals collagen to regenerate. Meanwhile, the surrounding “untreated” tissue helps to support and accelerate the healing process in the skin.
  • It’s dark-skin friendly. Because the laser energy must pass through the pigment layers of the skin, darker skin types have a higher risk for post-laser complications. Since radiofrequency is color blind, radio frequency can be performed on darker skin types.
  • Little to no downtime. Generally, the higher the machine setting, the longer the downtime. The more overlap, the more downtime. Your clients should expect a minimum of 24 hours and not have the treatment before a big event.
  • Multiple sessions are required. As a cosmetic laser tech, you will learn that the standard sublative laser treatment is generally three to four sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are recommended after one to two years.
  • It’s a skin rejuvenation treatment. radio frequency can be used to treat wrinkles, scars, large pores, acne scars and more!
