How Does RF Cavitation for Acne and Cystic Acne Work?

How Does RF Cavitation for Acne and Cystic Acne Work?

Fortunately, RF Cavitation for Acne and Cystic Acne is a very effective procedure for most of our clients. The best thing about the process is that it includes a hot and a cold hammer. It’s just one piece of the overall RF Cavitation capabilities. It works great to clean deep within the pores of the skin. First, we use the hot hammer to open pores, break up bacteria inside, and just get your skin nice and open.

Next, we start cleaning the skin by getting all of the particles out to avoid any build-up. When we are finished cleaning, we begin to use the cold hammer.

Here’s where we ease the pores to close up nice and tight to prevent impurities from coming back inside. Then we apply a rose hemp oil. Rose hemp oil is a natural treatment that works very well on clearing up and controlling acne. It has been shown to help prevent future breakouts.

So, this entire process, of which RF Cavitation is a part, helps to soothe acne breakouts, helps eliminate new problems, and keeps skin from looking harsh.

Can You Use RF Cavitation for Cystic Acne?

Absolute. Many of our clients who have cystic acne have reported great results with RF Cavitation. For clients who have lighter acne outbreaks, we see them about once per week for treatment. Those who have cystic acne, tend to come in about two times per week. After about three weeks, that is when clients report stating to see a big difference in the before and after. 

Do the Hot and Cold Hammers Hurt? 

Oh no, the hammer doesn’t hurt. First of all, it’s not terribly hot, but it is just warm. It’s the right temperature to just ease those pores open, like you would find with a hot steam shower. It’s just the right temperature to allow us access inside the pores to get that bacteria loose and out. 

You can actually see, if you have larger pores to begin with, how afterwards, the pores are closed. The biggest results tend to be around the nose and cheek area where some people have especially larger pores. Closing the pores means you will have a smaller risk for getting bacteria in them in the future.
