The Radio Frequency Therapy
Radio Frequency therapy is one of Richter’s non-surgical treatments aimed to tighten the skin to erase signs of facial sagging or drooping. This type of facial treatment is good for those who are in their 30s or 50s. Targeted areas include the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck. There are minimal risks and downtime when compared to surgical procedures.
With the help of pure radio frequency or RF, the facial area is tightened to reduce the amount of sagging. Before using the RF device, the face will be applied with a topical anaesthetic cream to slight numb the skin. Thereafter, a device that produces radio frequency will be applied to the different areas of the face.
Precautions when Undergoing Radio Frequency Therapy
It is important to know that as long as you do not have any skin disease or ailments, it is advisable not to take this therapy. This also applies to pregnant women and is recommended that they undergo this therapy after they have given birth. Those with pacemakers or metals implanted in their bodies are strictly prohibited when taking this therapy because it may pose danger to the health of the patient. Others include individuals who have artificial metal hip joints, heart valves or dental plates as it may heat up causing risk of severe injury to the person.
