At Glow Luxe we are always on the lookout for ways to improve on existing technologies in order to maximize the positive result for our amazing clients. For years the medical / medical spa industry has been working with both radio frequency and pulsed electro magnetic fields. Both have their own set of benefits, and now we can offer both together in one amazing treatment. It's a case of 1 + 1 equaling a perfect 10.
Radio frequency has come a long way since the early days of the first "monopolar" Thermage devices. Early radio frequency was quite painful and it was difficult to control the energy delivery to achieve the desire result for the client. Our new devices fall under the category of "multipolar" as they can have any where from 4 - 8 points of contact. This allows for smooth, even delivery of the radio frequency energy to ensure a comfortable, and effective treatment. "No pain, no gain" doesn't apply here.
How radio frequency works?
Energy is converted to heat as it penetrates the skin and fatty tissue. It's important to have control over the depth and intensity of the energy in order to optimize the positive treatment outcome.
The generated heat targets the extra cellular matrix which results in an immediate contraction of collagen, while also stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. This produces an immediate firming and tightening effect in the skin, followed by continuous improvement for 3 months from the last session. Because it is energy (but not light) based, RF has no effect on melanin and does not contribute to (or interact with) pigmentation changes unlike laser.
And Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields?
Originally used for therapeutic treatment such as wound healing, nerve and muscle pain relief, and regeneration of cartilage, tendons and ligaments, PEMF increases and compliments the benefits of the RF energy and contributes to an improved end result.
- Stimulates collagen + fibroblasts (think, our bodies own fillers)
- Energizes and supports cellular repair and healing
When you team both RD + PEMF?
By using both together we supercharge fibroblast proliferation to increase skin plumping collagen production and create an immediate (and continuing) contraction of elastin (tighter skin!). The end result is firmer, smoother, healthier looking skin...the perfect anti-aging treatment.
