Did you ever imagine what your skin would be like if your face didn't show the passing of the years? Do you know the techniques to restore to your face the radiant appearance it had at 20? An effective alternative to scalpel intervention is the Radiofrequency with Microneedles, a minimally invasive procedure that provides you with the lost collagen. We tell you all about this successful technique.

Over the years, the face loses the skin's natural collagen, fibrous molecules that form its structure and resist tensile forces. By becoming deficient in this protein, the skin begins to show no tone and reveal its first signs of aging, which from the age of 35 can become visible through lack of brightness, sagging and incipient wrinkles.

Radiofrequency with Microneedles is an innovative technology that helps regenerate the substances that are essential to keep skin smooth and young, and its application is simple and innovative, obtaining excellent results.

¿En qué consiste la Radiofrecuencia facial?

This contribution of the technology resides in the application of electromagnetic radiation directly on the aged tissue in the deepest layers of the skin, in order to cause great molecular and energy mobilization in the facial tissue.

"The Scarlet produces a gradual heating on the skin, acting mainly on the existing collagen fibers, strengthening them and producing an effect called collagen genesis (formation of new collagen), generating contraction of the skin and therefore reducing sagging", explains the Dr. Hoogstra, underlining that “during the procedure a sensation of heat is perceived in the treated area, without becoming annoying or painful. Later the skin can be seen reddened, gradually disappearing. "

Radiofrequency with microneedles applied to the face achieves contraction of the skin (lifting effect) as it redefines the contour of the face, lifts the cheekbones and eyebrows as well as the neck (dewlap), reshaping the facial area.
But its use is not limited to the skin of the skin as it is also an excellent technique to improve flaccidity in the arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs, caused by age, pregnancy or loss of muscle mass.
The results are extraordinary from the first moment, although they are gradually increasing. It is not necessary to take extraordinary measures after the procedure and does not require anesthesia. It also does not require a recovery period and it is possible to sunbathe as long as the proper protection is used.

"The result is evident from the first session since the effect is immediate when the existing collagen is contracted. In a second stage this improvement will be accentuated, achieving the maximum result around the first three months, which is when approximately the formation of new collagen is completed, "says the specialist.

The indications of the Scarlet, Radiofrequency with Microneedles They are:

Radiofrequency with microneedles introduced in Latin America by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra is indicated for both men and women who want to improve their appearance without undergoing surgery. "To obtain good results, the sessions (lasting approximately 30 minutes) should be carried out at intervals of 30 days, approximately 4 sessions are recommended, the effect being maintained for more than a year if controlled maintenance is carried out," the expert warns.
