rf treatment at ysa review + faq

You know how all these actors and actresses have beautifully chiseled faces? I used to be so jealous of their pronounced jawlines and cheekbones until I found out that they weren't born that way. Nope, they all used to be regular people like us until they started doing regular RF treatments.

Anne Curtis, Derek Ramsey etc, etc. I've asked people in the know and YES, 99% or maybe even 100% of all the people you see on TV get regular RF treatments.

So how exactly does an RF treatment work and what does it do?

Radio Frequency treatments work by delivery of RF energy (in the form of heat) to the dermis (the deepest layer of skin) and sub-dermal layers without damaging the top layer of skin or epidermis.  Heating in this area causes collagen contraction, realignment and new collagen production which continues to build over several months.  

By promoting the production of healthy collagen, Radio Frequency can help firm up and sculpt your face and body resulting in tighter, younger looking skin.  Full results are noticeable approximately 2 -3 weeks after treatment.

Where to get an RF treatment?

With so many clinics offering RF services today and so many tempting offers available in Group Buying sites, how do you pick the right place to invest your money in?
Well, first of all, like I've mentioned in my previous posts, effectivity of treatment relies heavily on the type of machine being used and the skill of the personnel operating it. Just like with everything else in life, a cheap machine won't get the same quality results as a good machine.

But how does a normal person like us know the difference between the two? My rule of thumb relies mostly on pricing and people who've already experienced the service. I believe that when the price offered is too good to be true, than it probably is. Nothing comes cheap these days. Also, no matter how cliche it may sound, celebrity endorsers also count since they are walking examples of results.

The problem with clinics that can afford celebrity endorsers is that prices can sometimes get blown out of proportion. Of all I've researched, YSA offers the most reasonable prices with guaranteed awesome results.

What happens during an RF session? Is it painful? Is there downtime?

During an RF session at YSA, you will first be ushered into a private room like the one in the photo below. You will be asked to remove all jewelry and anything else on your body that may contain metal.

After undressing (usually just your top, depends which body part you're getting the treatment done), you will need to cover yourself with a towel. 

A trained personnel will then perform the treatment starting by placing a metal plate on your back. This is just a safety precaution to avoid static.

This is the machine used, the different sized black knobs at the top are what they use to rub against your skin.

An oil will generously be applied to your skin so the knobs glide on smoothly. There is absolutely zero pain although it can get pretty hot at times. This is where a properly trained technician comes in. When it comes to RF, the hotter you can tolerate, the better. Skilled personnel will now when its time turn it down a notch to prevent burning.

Treatment lasts around 15-30 minutes per body part depending on the severity of the problem area.

RF also produces better weight/fat loss results when combined with regular excercise.

After treatment, you are not allowed to eat or drink anything cold for the rest of the day.

I am currently getting treatments done for my face, neck and belly. So far., I have been through 3 sessions and I AM SO LOVING IT. It is super addicting because results are almost immediately noticeable especially on the face and neck area...yes, it's like having  a professional make-up artist do a perfect "contour job"  all up in your face erryday. :P Tummy takes a little bit longer for results to show but after 3, mine has significantly reduced loose skin. Another thing I love is that the deep lines on my neck (one of the most obvious signs of aging) have gone away and it's back to all it's youthful 20-something glory, YAY! You will be "blooming" everyday. :))
