People are becoming more and more aware of the pursuit of beauty, and they have begun to accept various medical beauty programs, such as radio frequency wrinkle removal and so on. Radio frequency wrinkle removal is a fashionable beauty program. It used to be popular in Europe and Taiwan. However, many women still have some doubts about radio frequency wrinkle removal. Here, I will briefly introduce the application of each generation of radio frequency technology in the field of beauty. .
The alternating current that changes less than 1,000 times per second is called low-frequency current, and the one that changes more than 10,000 times is called high-frequency current, and radio frequency refers to this high-frequency current. In medicine, AC high-frequency current with a frequency of 0.5 to 8 MHz is called radio frequency.
Since Darsonval first applied radiofrequency technology to living tissue in 1868, radiofrequency technology has been gradually applied to clinical fields such as neurology, cardiology, liver tumors, etc. Until 1996, ManjT and Abraham of THERMAGE Company in the United States invented ThermaCool technology, and it was released in 1996. After it was approved by the FDA in 2002, radio frequency technology began to be used in the field of skin beauty. A large number of literatures reported that radio frequency has the effects of removing wrinkles, improving skin relaxation, and improving skin quality, which has provided a new level for the development of skin rejuvenation technology.
The application of radio frequency technology in skin beauty should be the radio frequency treatment that everyone often hears. Radio frequency treatment has been certified by the US FDA and 48 patents in the United States before 2002. In 2009, it was certified by the Chinese SFDA for radio frequency treatment equipment. The radio frequency wave penetrates the barrier of melanocytes in the basal epidermis, heats the collagen fibers in the dermis to 55°C-65°C, the collagen fibers contract, and the sagging skin wrinkles are tightened, thereby achieving the purpose of beauty and wrinkle removal. The representative work is the hot cool skin tightening radio wave lift machine from the United States, which is a medical version of radio frequency technology radio wave skin lift equipment. It must be operated by a strictly trained doctor, and the machine cost and use cost are high. It is only used in medical beauty institutions, one time The curative effect of the treatment is maintained for about 2-3 years, and the charging standard ranges from several thousand yuan to tens of thousands of yuan. We define this equipment as a radio frequency beauty machine.
The second-generation radio frequency beauty machine is more common, which is the radio frequency beauty machine commonly used in beauty salons. From a technical point of view, it belongs to the maintenance version of the radio frequency beauty machine. The principle is the same as that of the medical version, and some will add light energy technology. When the light technology is applied to the radio frequency beauty machine, the light energy plays the role of a guide, guiding the radio frequency and strengthening the absorption of the radio frequency. Of course, light energy is absorbed by the epidermal pigment in large quantities, and the risk of dark skin treatment is greater. This type of machine is mainly found in beauty salons. The cost is less than 100,000 yuan. The curative effect lasts for several months or a year. The fee for a course of treatment is about 5,000 yuan.
The third-generation radio frequency beauty machine, also known as home radio frequency beauty instrument, is a monopolar radio frequency beauty instrument with radio frequency technology as the core. It has the advantages of portability, simple operation and safer use. For example, the DR.BAUER God-level RF Child Face Machine, which was listed in Hong Kong on Christmas Day in 2010. With the characteristics of household use and economy, it has set off the panic buying of household radio frequency beauty instruments. There are currently three radio frequency technologies on the market: monopolar radio frequency, bipolar radio frequency and tertiary radio frequency, and monopolar radio frequency is supported by multiple clinical evidences. It is worth noting that patients with heart disease, equipped with cardiac pacemakers, pregnant women, and patients who have been injected with liquid silicone and Ogilvy in the treatment area are not suitable for radiofrequency wrinkle removal.
