Radio Frequency (RF) skin tightening is an innovative aesthetic procedure that uses radio frequency or radio wave energy. This method is used to heat tissue, which in turn stimulates the production of subdermal collagen. By doing this, RF treatments effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.

Benefits of Elight Monthly Facial

What is Elight Facial?

As an aesthetic director, I often get asked about Elight facials. It’s one of my favorite treatments to recommend.

Elight combines two powerful technologies – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Radio Frequency (RF). The IPL targets pigmentation issues like sun damage or age spots. It also reduces redness from broken capillaries. The RF energy penetrates deeper to boost collagen production for firmer, more youthful skin.

I love Elight because it’s truly a multi-tasking treatment. You get brighter, more even-toned skin from the IPL. At the same time, the RF tightens and lifts by stimulating new collagen growth. The best part? It’s suitable for all skin tones and types with little downtime. After an Elight facial, my clients look refreshed with a beautiful radiant glow.

The RF V-Lift Facial involves the use of a handheld device that emits RF energy. This energy penetrates and heats the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating collagen production which in turn causes your skin to contract and tighten.

Radio Frequency for Skincare

RF uses energy waves to heat the deeper layers of your skin. This triggers collagen production, resulting in firmer and smoother skin over time. It’s great for concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging.

I often recommend RF treatments to clients in their late 20s and beyond. The results are gradual but natural-looking. And there’s no downtime, so you can easily fit sessions into your routine.

One of my favourite things is how customizable RF is. We can target specific areas like the face, neck, or body. It’s also safe for all skin tones when done by trained professionals.

If you’re considering RF, book a consultation first. We’ll assess your needs and develop a personalized treatment plan. A course of treatments is usually recommended for optimal results.

Wellaholic provides our popular Elight Facial Collagen Boost, a six-step technology facial which effectively banishes your pimple and acne problems using the appropriate energy rays to eliminate the acne-causing bacteria.

Evidence-Based Effect of RF Facial Rejuvenation

Monopolar Radiofrequency: An Emerging Skin-tightening Solution

Monopolar radiofrequency (RF) is being recognised as a nonablative, gentler skin-tightening treatment. It works by delivering uniform heat to the dermis at a controlled depth. This approach was studied in a research by the Department of Dermatology, Al-Minya University, Egypt, where six individuals of Fitzpatrick skin type III to IV and Glogau class I to II wrinkles underwent treatment.

The Methodology and Results of RF Treatment Study

The participants of the study were subjected to six sessions of RF treatment over a period of 3 months, with two-week intervals between sessions. Standard photographs and skin biopsy specimens were obtained at baseline, and at 3 and 6 months after the start of the treatment. Researchers then performed quantitative evaluation of total elastin, collagen types I and III, and newly synthesized collagen using computerized histometric and immunohistochemical techniques.

Clinical Outcomes and Satisfaction with RF Treatment

The RF treatment resulted in noticeable clinical improvements and high patient satisfaction levels, with corresponding facial skin improvements. Compared with the baseline, there was a statistically significant increase in the mean of collagen types I and III, and newly synthesized collagen. Conversely, the mean of total elastin significantly decreased, at the end of treatment and 3 months post-treatment. These findings demonstrate the potential efficacy of RF as a skin-tightening treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the science behind elight facial treatments?

Elight facial treatments utilise a combination of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Radio Frequency (RF) technology. The IPL works on the surface layers of the skin, targeting pigmentation, and vascular irregularities, while the RF energy penetrates deeper to promote collagen production and skin tightening.

How often should I get an elight facial in Singapore?

The frequency of elight facials varies based on individual skin types and conditions. However, as a general rule, most skin specialists recommend one treatment per month for optimal results.

Are elight facials safe for all skin types?

Elight facials are generally safe for all skin types. However, skin sensitivity, health conditions, and certain medications might influence how your skin responds to the treatment. Always consult with a professional before trying new skin treatments.

What are the benefits of choosing elight facial treatment over traditional facial treatments?

Elight facial treatments offer a range of benefits over traditional facials. They can help with skin tightening, reducing pigmentation, improving skin tone, and stimulating collagen production.
