For certain technologies with home use devices, we have to go back to what formed the basis of the CurrentBody story to understand their popularity.
Professional devices that help people look and feel younger had, and continue to grow, with a unique and dedicated following. Often people stay very loyal to a particular treatment that works for them, and the only pitfall for not seeing results is the infrequency of professional treatments at a salon or clinic due to the treatments price, and of course the commitment of time. One of the most popular anti-ageing technologies used in the UK, as well as worldwide, is Radio Frequency.
Benefits of Radio FrequencyRadio Frequency offers multiple benefits, including:
- Reduces wrinkles
- Tightens the skin
- Reduces fine lines
- Rejuvenates collagen and elastin fibres
- Lifts facial contours
- Reduces superficial sun and age spots
- Strengthens the deeper layers of the skin
- Improves the structure and elasticity of the skin
We like to think that skin tightening is enough, but many users will tell you that professional RF is an exceptional alternative to invasive options. With a significant public following and a sound, safe scientific platform, it is no surprise that professional devices continue to advance in terms of efficacy - the all-important instant results that the public demand. A good example of this is Endymed 3DEEP RF technology.
The trend that's followed success in a specific technology is creating a home use device that sits side by side the professional salon treatment.
Endymed have added to their range with the hand held NEWA device using the using the very same technology as 3DEEP Skin Science attached to its big brother used by elite therapists. This is the only multi-source RF technology available which focuses and controls the energy deep into the skin. FDA approved and supported by unrivalled technology this has replaced some of the older technologies like Pollogen’s Tripollar range.
Different Types Of Radio Frequency
Another significant device in this field of RF is the Silk'n FaceTite, Bi-polar technology with LED light, combining two popular themes. Although the power is arguably not as strong as NEWA's, as reflected by a lower price point, the combination of technologies has been very popular with top London Harley Street expert Debbie Thomas. The FaceTite is hugely popular in Asia too and could easily claim to be the highest selling anti-ageing gadget.
At CurrentBody we have seen a rapid rise in the demand for effective anti-ageing devices and RF’s popularity stems from those who have seen significant results in the salon. There is no doubt that's particularly useful for those don’t want surgical procedures (or think they are too young for them), but who are looking for skin tightness with no risks and no downtime.
More About Radio Frequency
The differing RF technologies available from NEWA and Silk'n, with iluminage following suit with the soon-to-launch Youth Activator, give you some excellent options at varying price levels and we often see that investing with the best brands is important, not just for results but longevity of the hand held unit and support and care for you and the device.
As this market place expands, we anticipate seeing many more devices coming online, so be sure to research and read carefully about each one. Look out for imitations and used devices for sale, but there is no doubt RF is here to stay. We've seen little better than these small but powerful units and look forward to more success stories with visible results.
One word of caution and one we always attach to our products, home devices are not miracle cures and nor can they be used once for you to expect a ‘new you’. They require an investment of time and patience alongside the cost, so be sure to have some time to use it and give three months before deciding if it is for you or not.
