Radiofrequency treatment can be applied to tissues deep in the dermis by non-selective heating. This technique is fully complementary to the complementary effects of light energy and high-frequency electromagnetic waves. The absorption of RF energy by tissue depends on the water and electrolyte components in the tissue, and the skin. Melanin is irrelevant, thus overcoming the barrier function of the epidermis. When radio frequency and photon energy are used in combination, it is possible to activate the bacterial porphyrin on the one hand and inhibit the sebaceous gland function on the other hand due to thermal stimulation, so that it is effective for the treatment of acne. Radiofrequency treatment of acne costs 5000-40000 yuan / course of treatment, according to the needs of different subjects can be one or more treatments, postoperative maintenance time ranging from several months to several years.

Therapeutic effect: maintain for several months to several years Suitable for people: mild to moderate acne population Recovery time: 7-20 days

Indication

Radiofrequency treatment of acne is the advantage of combining light energy with high-frequency electromagnetic waves. On the one hand, it activates bacterial porphyrins, on the other hand, it may inhibit sebaceous gland function due to thermal stimulation, so it is effective for the treatment of acne. However, radio frequency has its limitations, and its adaptation to the population is mainly mild to moderate acne.

Contraindications

People with the following symptoms are not suitable for this method to treat acne:

1. A skin malignant tumor or precancerous lesion.

2. Those who are allergic to extreme cold and heat irritation.

3. Increased intracranial pressure, arterial obstructive disease, glaucoma, inflammatory acne patients.

4. Install a pacemaker in the body or a metal implant in the body.

5. Patients with local infectious skin diseases and open skin lesions.

6. Patients with epilepsy and mental illness.

7. Patients with severe cardiopulmonary liver and kidney dysfunction.

Preoperative preparation

Radiofrequency treatment of acne is one of the treatments for acne. Because of the specificity of radiofrequency, it is necessary to perform certain preoperative preparations before radiofrequency treatment of acne:

1, must clean the face before treatment, can not leave cosmetics.

2. Do not wear any metal products on your body.

Treatment and process

Radiofrequency treatment of acne is the advantage of combining light energy with high-frequency electromagnetic waves. On the one hand, it activates bacterial porphyrins, on the other hand, it may inhibit sebaceous gland function due to thermal stimulation, so it is effective for the treatment of acne. The specific steps are as follows:

1 Apply the matching olive oil to the treated area of the subject.

2 Set the RF treatment parameters.

3 The radio head is continuously scanned on the skin of the treatment area and maintained for 3 minutes when the instrument shows that the skin temperature reaches 40 °C.

4 After each treatment in each area, move to the adjacent area to continue treatment until the end of treatment in all treatment areas.

treatment effect

Radiofrequency treatment of acne through non-selective heating, can play deep into the dermis tissue, fully combined with the complementary energy of light energy and high-frequency electromagnetic waves. Gives the skin a certain elasticity, smooth, flat, tough, soft and full of tension, showing a fascinating charm. Postoperative maintenance time ranges from several months to several years.

complication

1 Monopolar radio frequency: prone to edema, flushing, blisters, exfoliation, mild scars, etc. Once it appears, it often fades within a few days and weeks. Pigmentation is rare and may last for about 3 months.

2 Bipolar radio frequency: There may be a slight reaction such as transient erythema and blisters.

Rehabilitation and care

1. Relieve pain: In order to relieve immediate pain after surgery, it can be applied externally with gauze soaked with 2% lidocaine.

2, reduce edema: If the patient found significant edema during surgery (often found in the periorbital), dexamethasone 10mg can be applied after surgery, short-term oral corticosteroids can reduce postoperative swelling.

3, to prevent infection: oral antiviral drugs, broad-spectrum antibiotics and antifungal drugs.

4, within one week after surgery, the skin of the treatment area should not be exposed to the sun, do a good job of sun protection.

5, choose high protein, low sugar, low fat diet during treatment to promote postoperative physical rehabilitation.

Risk and prevention

Radiofrequency treatment of acne does not require a surgical incision, but there are certain side effects after surgery:

1 Adverse reactions of monopolar radiofrequency include edema, flushing, blisters, exfoliation, mild scarring, etc. Once it appears, it often fades within a few days and weeks. Pigmentation is rare and may last for about 3 months.

2 Bipolar radiofrequency adverse reactions are even rarer, and short-term erythema, blisters and other minor reactions may occur. But in general, this technology is the safest of the younger technologies.

Physiology and aesthetics

The skin is composed of epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue. The epidermis and the dermis are connected by a basement membrane band, which is rich in blood vessels, lymph, nerves, muscles and various skin appendages. The epidermis is differentiated from the ectoderm and belongs to the keratinized stratified squamous epithelium, which is mainly composed of keratinocytes and is connected to the subcutaneous tissue by means of the dermis. The dermis is differentiated from the mesoderm and consists of collagen fibers, reticular fibers, elastic fibers, and cells and matrix.

Healthy and beautiful skin should meet the four criteria of smooth, shiny, soft and elastic. The delicate skin brings infinite beauty to both the visual and tactile perspectives. The luster of the skin is a manifestation of vitality. It conveys the beauty of the physiological and mental state. The soft skin not only reflects the delicate beauty of women, but also marks the good metabolism of the skin. The dermis layer of the skin has elastic fibers and collagen fibers. The subcutaneous tissue is rich in fat, which gives the skin a certain elasticity. The smooth, flat, tough, tender and tension-prone skin indicates that the skin has a moderate water content and fat content, and the blood circulation is good. Showcasing seductive charm.

Equipment and materials

Radio frequency instrument: Radio frequency (RF) is an electromagnetic radiation energy whose energy can exist and propagate in the form of electricity or magnetism. Radiofrequency therapy is achieved by the principle of non-selective heating.
