Diving Into The Science Of Face Contouring

21 July 2021 by Omniya Clinic

There comes a point in life where the skin starts to lose its elasticity and it becomes harder to recover from all the micro contractions the body goes through daily. This is especially true for the face, and lines and wrinkles form during the ageing process.

It’s natural to want to look for treatments to reduce the impact of ageing and a revolutionary procedure to try is face contouring. Using a combination of science and cosmetic technology, face contouring is a worthwhile procedure to undertake

Face Contouring Explained

Face contouring is a non-surgical treatment that zones in on areas of sagging and wrinkled skin. It uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to promote healthy collagen and elastin growth in the body.

What Is Radiofrequency Energy?

Radiofrequency energy is a type of radiation that falls within the radio waves portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. A form of non-ionising radiation, RF waves don’t have the energy to remove electrons from an atom.

When used on the human body, RF energy produces a range of effects, such as coagulating or cutting tissue. It’s also highly effective for tightening skin and reshaping the structure of the face.

In this context, RF energy works through penetrating the skin on a deep level and impacting the subcutaneous and dermal layers. This causes improvements to tissue structure.

What Are The Benefits Of Radiofrequency Face Contouring?

Wrinkle and fine line reduction

After the face contouring treatment, you will experience an uplifting effect that helps to smooth out wrinkles.

Promote angiogenesis

Facial contouring also helps to improve angiogenesis i.e., the production of fresh blood vessels. This creates an environment for more oxygen in the cells and greater skin function.

A reduction in fat

Another advantage of face contouring is that it can sculpt the jawline and chin, reducing fatty deposits and creating a slimmer appearance.

What Are The Risks Of RF Face Contouring?

While face contouring is a safe treatment, it’s important to note that overexposure to RF energy can potentially lead to burns and other side effects:

  • Body tissue damage
  • Tingling
  • Severe swelling

You can rest assured that these side effects are unlikely to happen, as face contouring is carried out by cosmetic specialists who have years of experience in the treatment.
