DH 3-11-2014The desire for tighter, brighter, younger skin is most often desired for an individual’s face and neck. Radiofrequency also known as RF treatments are the newest technology mostly commonly used on the face to accomplish this without surgery. RF will tighten mild to moderate sagging of facial and neck tissue naturally. The best results are usually seen on individuals in their mid-30s to mid-50s. The perfect age for a natural lift that no one will know you did but you!

By treating the forehead, the skin across the forehead is tightened and eye brows are lifted. By treating under the eyes, the skin is thickened, tightened and the upper cheeks are lifted. Across the cheeks, RF lifts the skin slightly and diminishes large pores. Over the mid-face, RF diminishes sagging across the jaw line and shrinks jowls. Under the neck, RF diminishes the ‘waddle’ or ‘chicken neck’ that so many individuals see as they age. With RF advancements, immediate results are seen in almost all patients during the first treatment. There is no downtime, no pain and no discomfort. RF treatments can be enhanced with serums, and medical grade products such as our iS clinical line.

RF treatments can be performed on any skin type, without anesthesia or alterations in normal daily routines. TriPollar radio frequency, which is used by the Ultra Slim Plus II one of the top level units on the market today and used exclusively at Dedicated to Health due to it’s strong energy, focus and its technological design. When comparing non-ablative (procedures that do not involve the destruction of the outer layer of the skin) techniques, RF energy differs from laser (light) energy treatments in that light energy tends to scatter or absorb into the upper layers of the skin, making it difficult to deliver sufficient heat into the deeper layers without damaging the skin’s surface. While lasers affect collagen in the upper dermis, RF energy is able to penetrate deeper into the skin (below the muscle) and affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers, causing tightening and improvements to the underlying tissue structure.

During treatment, a mild heating sensation can be felt over the treatment area. It ends as soon as the device is removed from the skin. During and immediately following treatment, some redness can be seen. It should disappear within an hour or so. A client is advised to avoid contact with the sun, natural or artificial, for many hours following treatment. Sun block should be administered to ensure rays are avoided while walking to and from a location and while driving in an automobile. We provide a high quality medical grade sunscreen to protect the skin during and between sessions as you will have fresh new skin cells and skin that we want to protect and keep looking younger.

While the face seems to be most desired location for RF treatments, many desire skin tightening on other parts of their bodies. Some of the most advantageous areas for treatment are underarms (or bat wings), abdomen, thighs and buttocks. When fat cells swell within the hypodermis layer, they push the dermis against connective tissue and cause cellulite. The Ultra Slim Plus II works by treating the fat under the skin through Ultrasound Caviation and follows up with RF. These processes are done together to further tighten and smooth the skin and fatty layers; removing the cellulite and slimming the skin immediately.

TriPollar RF treatments have been clinically proven to tighten and re-contour skin, leaving it looking firmer and younger. Anyone treated with TriPollar can expect collagen contraction, with results varying from person to person.
