Radio Frequency: How Does it Work?

As you might have heard, we have an amazing new treatment at The Med Spa at NSPS. It’s our TriPollar Radio Frequency (RF) Technology.

TriPollar treatments effectively:
• Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Firm and rejuvenate the skin
• Contour the facial skin
• Sculpt the body and reduce unwanted fat deposits
• Reduce the appearance of cellulite
• Improve the appearance of stretch marks

This technology painlessly delivers focused and optimal radio-frequency (RF) energy to the skin surface and to subcutaneous fat layers. Controlled energy is delivered via three or more electrodes and limited to the treatment area. This focused delivery results in immediate visible results. For improved results it is recommended to undergo a series of treatments. TriPollar allows practitioners to choose between body and/or facial treatments. Targeted facial treatment regenerates collagen fibers in the dermis layer. Targeted body treatments shrink fat cells in the hypodermis layer and accelerate collagen regeneration. With this new treatment, I wanted to explain how radio frequency works and answer any questions that you may have.

How RF helps to tighten the skin:
1) It has an immediate effect by tightening the supportive framework of the skin through contraction of collagen fibers and tissue retraction, aiding in remodeling and rejuvenation.
2) Heating the dermis stimulates the body to produce collagen, boosting a healing response. This acts as a new deep foundation for the skin, producing additional tightening that becomes evident over several months.
3) I want all of my patients to be prepared and have realistic expectations: it is like watching grass grow. You just have to be patient as this is not an instant gratification, instant appearance changer, but I promise that it is happening and you will like the outcome!

RF also treats Cellulite and Fat Reduction by:
1) Improving the blood flow to the treated area.
2) Promoting the breakdown of fat cells, aiding the re-absorption and drainage of fatty deposits and retained fluids. My patients tell me they are feeling amazing because they are getting a great lymphatic drainage every treatment. It aids in the body by cleaning out all the toxins that are stored in the tissue, which is an added bonus!

RF Technology is the latest addition to the treatment options available at The Med Spa for the aging face and body. This safe, non-invasive, no downtime procedure is ideal for tightening loose or lax skin and aids cellulite reduction resulting in a better appearance of the ‘orange peel’ effect. And does it hurt? No! It feels like a hot stone massage. All clients new to radio frequency will need to see me for a free 30 minute consultation before beginning treatment. I will discuss what area of the body you are interested in working on and expectations and number of treatments that will be needed to get the best results.
