Radiofrequency device for home use more effective for skin rejuvenation than cosmetics

The finding was highlighted in a randomized cleft face clinical trial titled: “Effectiveness of a radiofrequency device for rejuvenating aging skin at home: a randomized cleft-face clinical trial”published in the journal Dermatology and Therapy.

“With the aging population and their consumption demands, approaches to reduce skin aging have received a lot of attention. For decades there has been an ongoing debate about the optimal treatment of skin aging. Radiofrequency (RF) is an important method of ablation and has become a popular means for rejuvenation, regional fat loss prevention and contour recovery,” the researchers wrote.

To test their hypothesis, the team analyzed the skins of 32 healthy Chinese women between the ages of 35 and 60 with crow’s feet in a randomized, controlled, split 12-week trial. Five repeated measurements were taken and the subjects also agreed to actively avoid sunlight during the trial.

One side of the subject’s face would be randomly selected as “the experimental side” and treated by the team with the RF beauty device, while the other side was considered a control and treated with an anti-aging cosmetic.

The anti-aging cosmetics contained aqua, glycerol, nicotinamide, palmitoylpentapeptide-4, ceratonia siliqua​(carob) fruit extract, sodium hyaluronate and tocopheryl acetate. The RF device was used with a gel containing various ingredients such as glycerin, vitamin A palmitate, tocopherol, sodium hyaluronate, ceramide 6 II, Aloe barbadensisleaf extract, salix albabark extract, Chrysanthellum indicum​ extract and ocymoid buttonleaf extract.
