To be fair: I do not own this yet--I was just reading through the questions for someone else to see if the red light is effective for aging AND acne treatments, and the general consensus seems to be "yes" on that matter.
I am answering this because I do know a lot about RF treatments, so I believe I can answer this without owning the product. What I DO have experience with is receiving eMatrix (RF) facial treatments in a laser center from medical professionals. I did a lot of research before getting my first RF treatment, and my main questions had to do with "what is the difference between this and laser treatments?" I was informed by the nurses and by many websites I that RF is very different from laser, IPL, Fraxel, and other forms of light therapies.
One huge indicator that Tanda is NOT an RF-related treatment is that it comes with goggles. RF never requires any eye protection since it does not use light. RF treatments must make contact to the skin with copper probes in order to deliver the radio frequency into the deeper layers of the dermis, and the Tanda does not have any sort of metal parts intended to contact areas of treatment. The Tanda also comes with goggles to protect the eyes from the light, something in stark difference from any RF treatments I know of.
When I had my Matrix facial, the ergonomic gun was placed right next to my eyes in the nasal area below my eye and in the crow's feet area in the corners--I was not even required to close my eyes, let alone wear goggles.
Radio frequency therapy and light therapy are very different from one another, so I believe it is safe to assume there is no RF in the Tanda.

This devise does not use radio frequency, only LED light waves.
