What is RF?
The procedure of RF lifting (Radio Frequency Lifting), radio wave, or non-surgical lifting, has firmly entered the arsenal of cosmetology, in particular anti-aging therapy, over the past 10-15 years and is based on the process of diathermy – deep heating of tissues with high-frequency currents.
The diathermy method is quite old, over 100 years. The procedure was developed and used primarily to treat bones and joints.
For diathermy, it is customary to use a current of up to 3A and a frequency of 1.65 MHz. These frequencies are matching with radio frequencies, but they are not waves, therefore, it’s incorrect to call this procedure a radio wave lifting. Many aesthetic procedures were created based on radio frequencies, the most familiar one is thermage.
The RF methodology
High-frequency currents influence on the dermis (collagen-elastin face frame) and hypodermis (subcutaneous fat), bypassing the epidermis. Due to warming functions, sagging, wrinkled skin, blood, and lymph flow are significantly improving. Metabolism activating fibroblasts, substances that are the precursors of collagen and elastin fibers, hyaluronic acid, fibrin are restoring. Fibers are toning up, shrink and re-form a young and elastic face.
As we know, now in the era of technology there are all sorts of beauty devices, but agree, beauty devices from South Korea still would be one of the bests in the market. Let’s see some of them from Poya, all their devices FDA proven and has CE certification, so it’s very safe to use.

Am I a candidate for RF lifting?
Cosmetologists recommend RF lifting for a non-surgical facelift and facial rejuvenation (cheekbones and cheeks lift, elimination of “bags” under the eyes, upper and lower eyelids lifting, reduction of “crow’s feet” going from the outer corners of the eyes to the temples, as well as nasolabial folds and deep wrinkles around the mouth and above it, the formation of a clear contour of the lips and the oval of the face). Also, a neck lift, decollete, rejuvenation of the hands, lifting in the abdomen, “love handles”, thighs and buttocks, elimination of stretch marks, ptosis (sagging after childbirth or sudden weight loss).
Good to know!
It is important to know the difference between thermage (thermolifting) and RF-lifting procedures. With thermage, the skin warms up under the influence of 60℃ degrees. The monopolar nozzle allows you to warm the skin up to 3 cm – that is, deep enough to reach the collagen fibers.
When using RF lifting devices, the temperature of exposure to the skin is lower – from 40 to 45 degrees. It is performed on a bipolar nozzle, which makes the procedure fully controlled and safe.
If the temperature of skin warming does not reach 42 ° C, then such a completely safe procedure for the effect will be comparable to the most ordinary heating pad.
A temperature of 43–44 degrees starts the process of protein denaturation, which ensures the necessary result. Exposure can be carried out for several minutes without the threat of burns.
A temperature of 45-50 ° C gives a tangible result, but the safe effect is measured in seconds. Warming of the affected area at 50 ° C can last a maximum of 20 seconds in one session.
The most powerful effect is achieved by the “thermage” technology, at which the temperature exceeds 50 ° C. The impact in this mode should be very short.
Temperature above 60 ° С is not used in the cosmetology, it is unacceptable because it causes severe damage.
