27.12 MHz radio frequency anti-aging technology

With age comes wisdom… but also sagging skin, wrinkles and loss of tonicity. Many skin imperfections that come with aging are due to the depletion of the dermis in elastin and collagen. With 27.12 MHz high-speed radio frequency, Axis anti-aging facial treatments effectively stimulates cells that produce collagen and elastin so that your skin regains all its splendor. After only a few treatments, the skin is more radiant, its texture improved, wrinkles are reduced and the areas without tonicity are firmer.

What is radio frequency?

The term radio frequency refers to the emission of electromagnetic waves. These waves have the ability to penetrate the skin and increase the intracellular movement of the ions. This action creates heat within the tissues, which is also known as an endothermic effect. The internal heat activates the energy potential of each cell and produces significant biological effects including an improvement of the skin quality. Electromagnetic waves are non-ionizing, which means that although they are able to stimulate the tissues they penetrate, there is no risk of creating mutations. In fact, their energy is not even sufficient to remove an electron from an atom, which makes them safe to use.

Expected results

Applying radio frequency to the skin creates an endothermic effect that activates different processes, including an increase in the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the cells. As a result, the cell’s metabolism becomes more active, which promotes the elimination of stagnant liquids. With respect to the epidermis, we witness a significant reduction of wrinkles. Whereas the effects of radio frequency are not permanent in nature, they can safely be described as long-term. Electromagnetic waves affect connective tissues by firming up the skin. The production of collagen and elastin fibres is naturally reactivated and, little by little, there is an increase in the quantity and diameter of these fibres. The end result is that skin regains its tone, since collagen and elastin fibres are more numerous, more voluminous, improved in structure, and in a word, healthier.

Why use the 27.12 MHz radio frequency

The main advantage of the 27.12 MHz frequency is the ultrafast change from positive to negative polarity, represented by its 27 million cycles per second (Hertz). Since it uses such a high-speed frequency, Axis generates the required energy in less time than other devices in its class, which, in turn, allows it to achieve visible results faster. The 27.12 MHz radio frequency also promotes better absorption of power by the water molecules contained in the skin. In short, at 27.12 MHz, less power output is needed to provide an effective treatment than would be necessary at a slower frequency.

Pulsed electromagnetic waves and synchro mode

The Axis device emits electromagnetic energy as pulsed waves. Through the unique Synchro mode, current is intersped with periods of thermal relaxation of varying set duration, adapted to the client’s sensitivity level. This allows for optimal heat diffusion in the skin tissues, which in turn makes for more efficient and comfortable treatments.

Bipolar or monopolar?

The term bipolar means that waves are emitted between two poles (electrodes) located on the same handpiece. This type of radio frequency localizes the treatment to wherever the handpiece is placed. In the case of monopolar radio frequency, there is only one pole (electrode) located on the handpiece. The other pole must be placed close to the treated area. Therefore, the path traveled by the waves from one pole to the other is longer. Axis uses bipolar technology which is simple to use, efficient and safe.


The Axis’ handpieces are designed to conform to the shape of the face and to target the imperfections and blemishes that need to be treated in a precise manner. Both are also equipped with a sensor that reads the skin’s temperature during the treatment.

Fine tip

This handpiece produces a targeted RF effect. It is perfect for specific areas and wrinkles.


This handpiece produces a broad RF effect. It is designed for the treatment of large areas (face, neck, neckline).

Treatments offered

Firming up

This treatment is specifically designed for sagging skin and helps to tone the face and neck area. Following this treatment, the skin is firmer and the face contour appears more defined.


This treatment is perfect for mature skin. It significantly reduces the wrinkles on the face and neck. The skin then looks smoother and younger.

Radiance/sensitive skin

Specifically designed for sensitive, young or lifeless skin, the Radiance/Sensitive Skin treatment is sure to be a hit with your clients. It revitalizes the skin and gives it a healthy, radiant glow.


This treatment is the perfect solution for skin imperfections. It reduces the appearance of scars and dilated ostia or pores and helps even out the skin.


This mode allows you to customize treatments according to the specific needs of each customer. The area, treatment settings and type of handpiece are all chosen by the technician.

A smarter device

Axis gives you access to intelligent programs aimed at simplifying your life. Simply select the desired treatment, your client’s gender, the treatment area and the power level, and Axis will suggest suitable treatment settings. Of course, you can override automatic settings at any time, according to the client’s specific needs.

Treatments for all skin types

Axis enables the technician to monitor and control heat output at all times, so as to safely treat all skins, including the most sensitive. A program has also been created to deal specifically with sensitive skin. Even at a low intensity, radio frequency exposure increases the metabolic demand (ATP) and intensifies the zonal consumption of oxygen, wihout adverse heat-related effect.

Temperature sensor

Axis’ temperature sensor, which is integrated into the handpieces, allows for the on-screen display in real time of the skin’s temperature during treatment. To ensure a safe and comfortable treatment, a maximum temperature threshold can also be set.

Stability control

Unique to Axis technology, the MP/XCL-25 current control circuit offers extraordinary stability as well as the ability to systematically adjust the intensity of the current according to the impedance and moisture level of the treated area.

Watch-Dog XCL

The Watch-Dog XCL system continuously monitors the control circuit activity in order to immediately interrupt all current outputs in the event of an anomaly. Also, thanks to its powerful dual microprocessor, software activity will never interfere with the treatment.

A triumph of design

Axis is like no other radio frequency device. By setting our sights on an aluminum cabinet, we were able to create a design that was sleeker, more elegant and ergonomic. Additionally, thanks to its touch-screen and intuitive navigation, Axis is user-friendly and simple to use.

High-resolution touch-screen

The Axis’ touch screen is a marvel of high-tech engineering. With near instantaneous response time, high resolution, bright vivid colours, and wide angle of view. Dynamic images also show the suggested movements for each treatment.

Intuitive navigation

The screen’s visual interface allows you to do everything quickly and with ease! Icons and visual cues make navigating from one menu to another a breeze.

Ergonomic flip-top cabinet

Thanks to its retractable flip-top hood, Axis adjusts perfectly to your field of vision, regardless of your position. Made from a sturdy aluminum composite, Axis meets the highest medical standards with regard to frequency emissions. Durable, eco-friendly and safe!
