Radio frequency treatments are a novelty in aesthetic medicine which is a serious competition for plastic surgery. This technique is often called "without scalpel" and at the same time provides amazing results in your operation. Radiotherapy involves local heating of collagen fibers, which leads to shrinkage. Radio waves stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, resulting in wrinkles and skin rejuvenation effects. By using RF treatments you can increase density, elasticity and skin tension. Radio waves are non-invasive and painless. At the site of the procedure there is a reddened skin, the effect is gone after about an hour. For best results, we recommend 4 to 10 treatments at weekly intervals, repeating the series every 12-18 months.
Types of RF:
- Monopolar - otherwise called "unipolar" is used in devices having one pole or electrode. In monopolar technology, high-frequency current flows in the closed circuit from the device to the electrode, which is usually mounted in the holder. Achieving a closed circuit of energy travels from the electrode through the body of the patient and back.
- Bipolar - refers to a device having two poles or integrated electrodes where the current flows through the tissues between the two electrodes and not, as in the case of monopolar, through the patient's body. Bipolar technology does not require a neutral electrode (ie, as in a monopolar mounted in a holder).
SlimX's SKD-8800 3-in-1 camera is equipped with a bipolar RF electrode system. Thanks to the symmetrical distribution of the electrodes, the device provides very good results in its operation. These electrodes allow you to perform treatments on large areas of the patient's body. The device does not have a neutral electrode attached to it due to its bipolar design.
SlimX's Radio Frequency model SMR60 is based on bipolar technology, but instead of a single electrode it has a built-in grid electrode consisting of 144 mini electrodes on a 20x20mm surface. This technology is extremely effective due to the very precise penetration of the skin and the creation of an electromagnetic grid beneath the skin, which, unlike conventional solutions, provides exceptional efficiency in its operation. This design is dedicated to performing treatments on a small area of the face.
