Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
What is Radio Frequency?
Radio Frequency is a revolutionary treatment that firms, tightens and lifts the skin ... all without having to go under the knife.
The Radio Frequency treatment is non-invasive so it is ideal for those who either don’t want, or don't feel they are old enough for, surgical procedures.
Favoured by celebrities such as Mel B and Amanda Holden, Radio Frequency is gaining lots of followers and could soon replace Botox™ as the wrinkle remover of choice.
Unlike other ‘non-surgical facelift’ treatments on the market, Radio Frequency actually stimulates the skin’s own natural renewal of collagen, resulting in smoother, tighter and younger looking skin.
And the best thing is – Radio Frequency delivers great, visible results from the very first treatment.
The treatment is suitable for everybody, especially those looking to target fine lines and wrinkles or excess skin
How Does Radio Frequency Treatment Work?
Radio Frequency is a relaxing treatment that involves the application of a cosmetic gel and a warm wand passing over the skin in sweeping circular motions.
Your therapist moves the warm want of the Radio Frequency Device over your skin, gently heating it to 40°.
This works to stimulate the production of collagen, resulting in firmer, tighter and younger-looking skin.
The wand gently heats the lower levels of the skin to approximately 40°c; this tricks the brain into thinking there has been a potential injury and stimulates a healing response. This in turn causes increased collagen production and tightening of elastin fibres. The tightening of elastin fibres is instant meaning the skin appears tighter and lifted from the first treatment. The gentle heat also promotes fat cell reduction.
A course of 6-8 treatments is recommended for optimum results. Ideally this should be 2 treatments per week for 3 weeks. After completion of your course it is recommended to have a maintenance session every 4-6 weeks.
You will continue to see results for up to 3 months after the treatment course has ended. This is perfectly normal as it can take the collagen time to reproduce. The results of Radio Frequency can last for up to 2 years.
