AGE + SCAR Melt
No matter what your skin goals: Reduce breakouts and scarring, soften wrinkles, increase your glow; This treatment will change your life. We're not kidding.
Here's everything you need to know:
What Is It?
Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, also called AGE Melt and SCAR Melt at Glow, is a nonsurgical method of tightening & lifting your skin. The procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis.
This heat stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen creates the framework of your skin and gives your skin its firmness, and facial contours. As you age, your cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. Starting at age 25, your collagen production depletes by 1% every 6-12 months.
Luckily, the cells that produce your collagen ( aka fibroblasts) do not die, they simply become dormant. Radio Frequency re-activates these cells so they begin to make collagen and elastin again. RF has helped many clients at Glow, and may be able to help you as well!

RF facial skin tightening is not a treatment we hope delivers results; clinical studies prove it’s one of the most effective ways to achieve smoother and more youthful-looking skin. In a USA-based study, clinicians saw visible results in participants’ skin, and the subjects were likewise highly satisfied with their improvements.
Restore Facial Contours that sag as we age: One study looked at the effect of RF combined with pulsed electromagnetic treatment for 8 weeks. The researchers found significant improvement in facial skin laxity in all 11 participants, and 73 percent of them had improvements in facial contour.
Fight Sun-damage: Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause the collagen fibers in your skin to break down and become disorganized. A 2011 study found that 3 months of RF treatment led to clinically significant improvements in a group of people with mild to moderate signs of sun damage.
Wrinkles and Fine Lines: A 2018 study looked at the effect of RF therapy on wrinkles around the eyes of 70 middle-aged women (34-49). The researchers found that 10 treatments over 20 weeks significantly reduced their wrinkles.
Long Lasting Results
Thanks to increased collagen and elastin production, the improvements to your skin will be long-lasting. Some facial treatments only stimulate facial muscles or temporarily plump tissues; RF, on the other hand, triggers the skin’s internal healing processes, and collagen is inherently made to last. Your results can therefore continue up to two years.
We Use Hyaluronic Acid During The Treatment. Here's why:
HA is the unsung hero of skincare. It also works in tandem with collagen and elastin, so where those two fibers increase, HA is sure to follow. This means that with RF treatments, you can enjoy softer, silkier, and better-moisturized skin.
HA molecules naturally attract and bind to water molecules. It’s therefore a key component of your skin’s natural moisture barrier, and ramping up levels can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, soothe redness, and help skin look plumper.
A Lunch Time Procedure
The average AGE/SCAR Melt session lasts about 45-60 minutes. We apply a protective gel to your skin to facilitate treatment. The hand piece is then moved across your face with deft efficiency. And your treatment is unique to you; we customize the depth of thermal energy to ensure we meet your individual needs. We follow up with a customized mask to help you reach your skin's goals. The best part? ZERO down-time!
Even More Benefits:
The heat generated during treatment also increases cell metabolism and helps detoxify tissues. At the heat temperatures we achieve, blood vessels widen to increase blood flow and feed cells with more oxygen and nutrients. All that fresh, healthy blood flowing into your face also removes waste products like carbon dioxide. The effect is hard-working cells that provide an energy boost for dermal remodeling – and overall healthier skin.

Relaxing and Pain Free
One of the most appealing aspects of RF therapy is its non-invasive and gentle nature. While the energy heats and ultimately tightens tissues, it does so without damaging your skin’s top layer. And for patients who hate needles, RF omits them as well as other scary-looking tools for a comfortable treatment.
Clients describe sessions as relaxing and enjoyable, comparing them to a hot stone massage for the face. Some even fall asleep. Likewise, no downtime is required so you can get straight back to your day; you don’t need to hide your skin or go home to recover.
