Radio frequency facial rejuvenation treatments have been quite the buzz lately. Even celebrities are fans of it. But what exactly do these radio frequency facial rejuvenation treatments do for our skin?
How Radio frequency Treatments Work
In radio frequency treatments, energy waves are used to heat the skin layer under the epidermis. As the epidermis heats up, collagen production is stimulated. Radio frequency devices release this heat and energy in the form of electromagnetic waves. As the skin is heated up for a period of time, it produces an inflammatory response and so as part of the healing process, collagen synthesis occurs. The primary purpose of using radio frequency devices is to tighten and rejuvenate the skin.
Is the Radio Frequency Treatment Painful?
Since an electric current will be passing through your skin into your epidermis, you will feel a zap and heating sensations soon after. It might even feel like a rubber band hitting your face.
However, since pain varies from person to person, applying a numbing cream or soothing gel as a precautionary measure before the treatment may help.
Immediately after the treatment, be prepared to feel tightness in the skin. Overtime, you will see feel more tightening and see improvements following the treatment.
What are the Benefits of Radio Frequency Treatments?
ZAQ Facial Rejuvenation System
ZAQ offers a 7-in-1 facial rejuvenation system that contains the following treatment settings: 7 color Led Light therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, radio frequency, sonic vibration, and hot massager.
7 color LED Light Therapy treatment provides painless skincare therapy that plumps up the skin by boosting collagen production and treats mild to moderate acne. The LED lights work by sending energy-producing packets of light into the deep layers of the skin. As a result, this treatment can minimize fine lines, wrinkles, treat sun-damage and stretch marks. It can also reduce redness and inflammation after aggressive IPL or laser treatments.
- BLUE wavelength-415nm is great for skin sensitivity.
- RED wavelength-630nm stimulates skin cells to produce collagen to firm and smooth skin texture.
- GREEN wavelength-490nm provides anti-aging effects and also reduces wrinkles.
- CYAN wavelength-490nm reduces inflammation, neutralizes, balances and stabilizes the skin.
- White-Mix wavelength calms and restores the skin for a younger and healthier appearance.
- Purple wavelength-390nm improves lymph metabolism, and microcirculation to reduce acne.
- Yellow wavelength-590nm fades dark spots, freckles and blemishes.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) therapy is used to activate the skin cell, stimulates the production of collagen, improves skin elasticity, softens wrinkles and leaves the skin looking smooth and healthy.
Radio Frequency therapy uses the tissue’s natural resistance within the various layers of the skin to transform the RF energy emitted to the skin into thermal energy. The great thing about this technology is that it can be used for all skin types. The heat that penetrates deep into the skin stimulates collagen production which results in tightening of the skin and reduces signs of aging. It can specifically, target lines on the face like the nasolabial folds and neck lines too.
Sonic Vibration setting can give a micro-massage effect and boost blood and lymph circulation. It can also strengthen cell permeability, improve tissue metabolism, cell regeneration, and makes the skin radiant and elastic.
Hot Massager can stimulate muscle movement and produce heat. The hot massager heats up to a temperature of 40 degrees which can help the pores to open up and allow deeper penetration of serums, and moisturizers.
ZAQ’s 7-in-1 facial rejuvenation system allows you to get a high quality skin therapy experience all in the comfort of your home! Make sure you use it on clean and non-irritated skin.
