I recently went for the IR-RF Face Lifting Treatment at SkinLab, it is a new high frequency treatment that is fast and comfortable with no down time. While traditional RF machines deliver the RF energy deep into the skin through high frequency, it is being blamed for causing strong pain and requiring expensive consumables.
I’ve written about my experience getting an RF treatment elsewhere before (in a nutshell, to me it wasn’t painful and visible lifting was evident immediately after treatment), what differentiates this treatment at SkinLab for me is a much less uncomfortable experience. This treatment sends gentle heat pulses on the skin and usually my cheekbones and periorbital zone don’t respond too well, but in this case the I was able to tolerate it really well and without any anesthesia too!
After the first few passes all over my face, I found the heat soothing and I dozed off. I appreciated the heated treatment bed as the room was air-conditioned and you know how I don’t respond too well to chills either, so the soothing gentle heat lulled me to sleep and I managed to steal a quick nap while getting this treatment. The face lifting treatment – about 45 minutes total including cleansing and a much-needed mini backrub after – focused on these areas for me: chin, jowl, lower cheeks and nasolabial folds as well as outer-eye corners.
Post-treatment, I think the collagen regeneration must be effective as my face exudes radiance afterwards and the firming effect seems to last longer as well. I waited until I’ve gone for two sessions before writing this in order to record my observations more accurately, and I am personally pleased with the results. Sometimes I think that perhaps all I need is more TLC for myself, get enough sleep, stress less and I will be glowing naturally all the time.
The new IR-RF treatment at SkinLab promotes regeneration of collagen by heating the dermis through high frequency IR and RF energy at the same time to make up for various disadvantages and to solve limitations of other Light and RF machines (ie. pain and discomfort, temporary results that do not last).
This treatment is suitable for both face and body and the advantages of the face lift system are:
• simple and easy to treat patients without causing pain.
• reduce treatment time for the entire face up to 15 ~ 20 minutes at the shot speed of 2Hz.
• does not require anesthesia for treatments, and patients can go back to their daily activities instantly as it gives fast effects.
• patients can experience dramatic effects after 3 – 5 sessions at intervals of two weeks unlike the existing RF machines.
I don’t have before and after photos to share because frankly the differences aren’t very dramatic to begin with as my overall skin condition is generally still pretty good (amen!); these treatments are minor tweaks and an effort in maintenance. I believe that the key to anti-aging is to start before you visibly look like you’ve aged, so before you get to that stage of looking old, begin getting treatments now to retain a youthful look for as long as you can.
The results I’ve experienced from this new IR-RF Face Lifting treatment are gradual, imo. Friends have dished compliments that my face looks more refreshed, so I take it that this must be the positive effects from the IR-RF Face Lifting treatment as that’s the only thing which I have gone for. Honestly, I am not best at reviewing this sort of thing because I don’t spend much time squinting into the mirror to figure out which areas are visibly showing signs of aging, but I do look at photos of myself and then suddenly realize “HOLYBAJEEZUZ, what are those lines on my face and when did they start appearing!?! *shrieeekkk*” – something like that, then life goes on, I get temporary memory loss until I suddenly remember I’d better do something about those lines. In this case, going to SkinLab for IR-RF Face Lifting.
