Radio Frequency (RF) energy is a technology that is used to deliver RF waves to the target area in a non surgical manner. Heat produced by radio frequency waves promote skin tightening and stimulate the production of new collagen.
Radio frequency waves reach into the deeper layers of the skin such as the derma/dermis and would not affect the layers that are closer to the skin’s surface (eg; epidermis). The heat shrinks fat cells by causing them to extrude its fatty acids.
Yes, according to a recent study, unlike radio frequency waves that are emitted from non-surgical equipment like computers and cell phones, the radio frequency waves from medical equipment are strictly controlled. The machines are FDA approved and have the ability to control the device while preventing it from overheating at the same time.
The benefits using RF on your skin include:
✓Skin firming, lifting & tightening
✓Reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and enlarged pores
✓Great for body contouring. Removes unwanted or stubborn blotches of fat
✓Rejuvenates skin, bringing youthfulness back to the skin
Anyone with no major health issues can receive treatments with radio frequency. It is especially recommended for individuals who wish to tighten and lift saggy skin without wanting to undergo surgery. It is also effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Our doctors generally will not advise pregnant ladies to undergo any aesthetic treatments during their course of pregnancy.

There is little to no downtime for most treatments related . There might be some redness or swelling but it will subside within a day.
Enhanced results can be attained when RF is combined with micro needling, which is also known as INTRAcel RF Micro-needling. INTRAcel RF Micro-needling technology delivers the radio frequency waves through fine micro-needles, resulting in the stimulation and production of new collagen in a highly effective manner. These micro-needles penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin, where radio frequency waves are emitted to trigger a repair response from the body.
The expected result is the improvement of scars, pores, wrinkles and tighter rejuvenated skin. The downtime is minimal and some might feel slight discomfort, which is usually described as a feeling close to light sunburn. It will subside within a few hours. There might be slight redness and swelling both of which should subside within a day. INTRAcel Micro-needling can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars or tighten loose skin on the neck and jowl. 3-5 sessions are recommend for optimal results. The interval of each session spans around 4-6 weeks as the skin has to recover.
INTRAcel RF Micro-needling is available at Gangnam Laser Clinic.
