RADIO FREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING

Radio frequency is one of the most exciting skin tightening treatments in aesthetics being non-invasive yet incredibly effective for all skin. In our early twenties collagen is abundant in our skin, however, as we age our collagen production slows down by as much as 1.5% a year. By the time we’ve reached early forties the level can be reduced by as much as 30%. Dryness, fine lines and a loss in tone can be noticed. Radio Frequency waves produced by our machine can stimulate collagen regeneration. It is the perfect treatment to create a younger and more hydrated skin without the downtime. The results achieved are natural in appearance by providing cellular stimulation where the skin becomes more vibrant and gains general glow.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Radio Frequency is used to heat deep skin layers to produce

more collagen giving the skin a tighter appearance.

Tightening the skin’s appearance using the anti-gravity

action of the treatment can also create a lifting effect. Heating

in the deeper dermis, to a constant 40-45 degrees, stimulates

fibroblast action. Fibroblasts are the connective tissue cells

that produce collagen and elastin. In turn, this increases the

synthesis of new collagen and elastin fibres. The thermal

trauma causes an immediate contraction of the fibres

resulting in the production of new

collagen. 

HOW DOES IT FEEL?

As it is a heat treatment you will feel warmth which is very

relaxing and pain free on the face and body.

RECOMMENDED TREATMENTS

A course of 8 treatments is recommended, 1 session a week with a monthly maintenance session. Maintenance specifically can be done 1 treatment per month for 3 months followed by a reassessment of the skin. If required, another course of 8 weekly treatments is recommended or maintain skin every 4-6 weeks.

TREATMENT THAT COMPLIMENT

Facials - For the best results we recommend 3D Skintech Ultimate Facial which combines Radio Frequency with Microdermabrasion, Mesotherapy and LED Light Therapy. Combining all 4 technologies allows you to target all aspects of the face to benefit the most from each session.

Body - Cavitation can be used to break down fat cells followed by Radio Frequency for skin tightening finishing with Shockwave to reduce cellulite & tighten skin further. This treatment can also be used after fat freezing if necessary.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RADIO FREQUENCY & SHOCKWAVE?

Both of these treatments smooth and tighten the skin. Radio Frequency tightens loose, less firm skin whereas Shockwave smooths cellulite and the surface of the skin.
