Discover how to activate collagen production with the latest advanced radiofrequency technology

Undoubtedly, all professionals in the industry are familiar with the word collagen, but you may not realise just how vital it is to prevent signs of ageing. As a crucial protein in the body, collagen works with elastin in a skin-strengthening synergy. Collagen is a building block for muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue, creating about 30% of the total protein in our body.

There are many different types of collagen in the body, but type 2 and type 3 collagen are key skin components. They make up around 80% of the dry weight of our skin, meaning that if you discount the weight of all water in the skin, collagen is almost all that’s left.

According to many studies, as we age, our collagen production decreases by 1% annually once we reach our 20s. As a result, the skin becomes looser, leading to the most common signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and fine lines, sagging skin, dryness and dullness.

We mainly find collagen in the dermis, made by fibroblast cells, forming the structural framework within the dermis, and giving skin strength, flexibility, and elasticity. Taking steps to boost collagen production will help increase our skin’s resilience.

Fractional RF treatment benefits

During radiofrequency (RF) aesthetic treatments, collagen is stimulated and regenerated by a woundhealing response, created by controlled thermal damage, encouraging new collagen production.

Zemits fractional needles RF technology delivers collagen-inducing plump, tone, and rejuvenating treatments. Thermal damage is created by heating collagen in the dermal tissue. Cell denaturation occurs at approximately 40-43ºC, and the inflammatory response of the heat trauma stimulates a fibroblast action. This results in the production of new collagen and reduction of spaces between the fibres.

This technology allows practitioners to work with the body’s natural process, helping clients to achieve long-lasting outcomes without downtime or expensive aftercare. Results could be visible after the first treatment but will progress over 60 to 90 days as collagen cells continue to build up.

The cutting-edge fractional RF technology of the Zemits CrystalFrax represents an example of an effective, long-lasting and comfortable skin-tightening treatment for all skin types. The main benefit of Zemits CrystalFrax is that its technology allows deep skin rejuvenation without impacting the entire skin’s surface because the multiple smooth RF pins cause thermal stress to the dermis in microscopic targeted zones.

Compared with traditional bipolar RF technology, Zemits CrystalFrax delivers RF energy in pulsating and continuous modes in a more precise section of the skin for better results within a much shorter treatment session.

Treatment is painless and non-invasive, with no downtime and few contradictions. Sessions are shorter, allowing for more appointments and profit. The device has three interchangeable heads for various zones of the face and body.

Incorporating collagen treatment into your beauty menu will not only benefit your clients but could also help to boost your profit. With a wide range of interested audiences of all genders and skin types, such treatment will be in demand, securing bookings as the technology requires a minimum of six treatments for best results.
