Radio Frequency Facial Rejuvenation Treatments

The most recent celebrity to admit having radio frequency facial rejuvenation is Gwyneth Paltrow. She underwent Thermage treatments and said “I went out to dinner right afterward and I didn't look crazy, but it's quite painful.” Other brands of radio frequency facial rejuvenation devices that use pure RF energy include Accent and Pelleve. This article looks at how radio frequency treatments change the skin, who can benefit from treatment, what to expect and the potential risks and complications involved.

Recently Gwyneth Paltrow’s cosmetic facial rejuvenation method made it into the news: Thermage, a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that is popular among those who, like Gwyneth, spurn cosmetic surgery and injectables.

Thermage is just one of the many devices that use radiofrequency technology to achieve skin tightening.

These are mainly used to correct skin laxity, and are best suited for those who have mild or moderate sagging in the forehead, mid-face, neck and jaw line and around the eyes. This usually means people in their 30s, 40s and 50s.

    Hi! I have just purchased a device called Reju.
    It cost about 200€. They say it is similar to thermage, and gives similar results. I am 70. Have few if any wrinkles, but puffy eyelids. That and maybe a bit of sagging beginning around the jaw. People insist that I look 48/50years old. I always believed in cold water rinsing of my face. How can heat be better?! Should I use both? If so which first or… cold/hot/cold? Thank you! I really want to at least maintain not destroy!
