The RF ACT device applies the Monopolar Capacitive Radio-frequency system, which is designed to meet the high demands of beauty salon professionals. Its use is easy and intuitive and allows you to obtain superior anti-aging results on both the face and the body.
The backlit LCD graphic display provides easy access to the various applications that can be set. The icon interface and graphics animations guide the operator step-by-step for an even easier programming.
During the treatments with RF ACT, radio-frequency (i.e. an electromagnetic field at a frequency of 420KHz for facial treatments and 405KHz for body treatments) penetrates the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis with the aid of special accessories, and generates a localized increase in the temperature and the basal metabolic rate as well as intensifies the blood supply in the area being treated (endogenous diathermy).
The heat generated causes an increase in blood perfusion and in the metabolic processes by stimulating the synthesis of collagen and vasodilation as well as increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues and consequently the removal of waste products from the body. The denaturation resulting from the increase in temperature causes an immediate new tensioning of the fibres, with an effect of contraction and distension that reactivates their original elasticity and forces the tissues to produce fresh collagen, which will replace the old and deteriorated one, as well as elastin and hyaluronic acid, which increase dermal density and improve the appearance of relaxed skin. The result, therefore, is a real non-invasive “lifting effect” as the skin is toned up by acting on natural factors to give it new elasticity and shine, quick wrinkle smoothing, facial rejuvenation and body tissue toning. In addition to alleviating aging damage, this treatment is also effective on damage caused by specific skin conditions due to traumatic events (e.g. scars).
The main effects of radio-frequency:
Lifting effect: The lifting effect is obtained through the contraction of collagen at different depths. Heating acts directly on the collagen to cause its denaturalization. Up to 30% of the fibres shorten and swell up thus re-modelling the treated area.
Cellular oxygenation: Already at a low level of emitted RF, an oxygenation effect is obtained as a result of the increase in cellular metabolism with an improvement in efficiency of microcirculation.
Lymphatic drainage: Thanks to the vascularization effect, excellent results can be obtained on the deposits caused by water retention. This effect can also be stabilised also thanks to the restored balance of the cell membrane.
Tissue and muscle toning: Immediate results (already from the first application) are more visible on thin skins compared to thicker ones, however we should consider that improvement progresses even in the days following the treatment.
