Here's a breakdown of how a Radio Frequency Facial works and how you can find and book an appointment near you:
What is a Radio Frequency Facial?
Radio Frequency Facials (RF facials) is a beauty innovation that uses high-frequency radio waves to help tighten the skin's surface and treat sun damage. During an RF facial, a trained nurse will use a device, that will send radiofrequency waves to the skin's surface, where currents stimulate the structure of the skin's barrier. The goal of an RF facial is to use heat energy to speed up the production of collagen and elastin and tighten the skin's surface. RF facials remodel our skin's interiors to reduce and prevent deep-set wrinkles and highlight our natural contours.
What are the benefits?
RF facials have become increasingly popular over the years, and for good reasons. For one, clients can achieve similar results to a facelift without the need for surgery or invasive treatment. Another bonus? RF facials provide long-lasting results, sometimes lasting up to two years - it's why skincare experts call it the 'forever facial.'
As we age, our natural collagen production slows down over time, which can cause the skin to sag and wrinkles to form, sometimes as early as our late 20s. Even if wrinkle prevention isn't your skincare goal, an RF facial can help to tighten the skin's surface and correct any signs of sun damage and acne scarring. It can also help define cheekbones and reduce the amount of excess skin around the neck and chin.
Each session lasts from 20 to 45 minutes, so you can even stop by during your lunch break when you need a top-up.
Does a Radio Frequency Facial hurt?
One key benefit of an RF facial is that the treatment itself won't cause any pain. Many clients claim not to feel anything during a session. After a facial, some may experience a warm sensation, which is more likely to feel like a post-tan glow rather than something that causes discomfort.
