RF stands for Radio Frequency. RF waves are like radio waves that are delivered to the skin surface.
Like any other form of waves, RF carry energy and deliver that to the tissues where they are absorbed. There are many types of RF probes. Unipolar, Bi-Polar and Multi-Polar. In Bi-Polar and Multi-Polar probes, the energy is transmitted from one to the other probe in the process passing through the skin and underlying tissue. Heat stimulates collagen formation and skin tightening. Unipolar probe emits RF into the body and causes heat in the deeper tissues which leads to destruction of fat cells.
In energy range used in aesthetics, RF is very safe. Excessive use in a small area can however cause burns
