Lax skin and wrinkles are generally due to the reduction of collagen fibers in the dermal layer of the skin. Collagen fibers are the proteins that support the structure of the skin. When the dermal layer is heated, collagen synthesis is stimulated. This leads to the appearance of facial remodeling with tighter, more youthful-looking skin due to the reduction of wrinkles and sagginess. Radiofrequency (RF) energy easily targets particular areas of the skin in order to trigger the production of new collagen where it is needed most.
There are several different methods of applying RF energy to the dermis. Initially, RF-based devices used either monopolar or bipolar electrodes, with these treatments being termed as ‘monopolar RF’ and ‘bipolar RF,’ respectively. Think of these “electrodes” as very small, fine wires that electrical currents can flow through. Essentially, bipolar RF uses two electrodes to deliver RF energy between them, while monopolar RF uses a single electrode. Bipolar RF shows limited results because of the limited flow of RF energy between the two electrodes. Monopolar RF has been associated with painful procedures because of the uncontrolled flow of RF beyond the target location from the single electrode.
As a consumer in beauty, it’s easy to generalize cosmetic treatments based upon specific keywords. To provide an example, when people think of using RF treatments to help improve wrinkles and lax skin, they may associate these treatments with a great deal of pain and local safety concerns like bruising and hyperpigmentation. However, recent technological advancements in RF treatments have minimized these risks while almost completely absolving the issue of pain.
EndyMed has developed 3Deep technology by using multi-source, multiphase-controlled RF energy which delivers the energy more efficiently within the dermal layer in a nearly painless manner. Studies have indicated that after RF treatments, the collagen fibers in the skin appeared both more fine and dense, resembling the structure of youthful skin collagen fibers. 3DEEP RF treatments provide a significant reduction in wrinkles and excellent facial tightening.
