Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening or RF as it is sometimes referred to, is a popular procedure for the non-surgical and painless tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin. It is a suitable treatment for both male or female clients who fall in to the mid-twenties to early sixties age category. For those wishing to avoid botox, needles or surgical face lift procedures, this is a must-have treatment.

The effect radio frequency waves have on the collagen bonds is to release and unwind them. As these collagen bundles spread apart, new fibrous tissue surrounds the area and this stimulates the growth of new collagen. Essentially, the collagen reforms and is remoulded resulting in a thickening effect on the dermal layer for improved skin surface texture. Localised metabolism and increased blood circulation in the area of treatment also occurs to release trapped toxins.

By means of a sophisticated electronic system, heat can be transferred deep down without damaging the epidermis and the result is a more supple, younger looking skin. The treatment causes a contraction of facial skin with a lifting effect (rejeuvenation of the face) which is particularly noticeble after a few months. By increasing the temperature of the existing connective tissue and by activating the fibroblasts by means of heat, to produce new collagen and new elastin, the wrinkles and signs of aging are smoothed, giving the skin a completely natural lifted effect.

Amongst all the rejeuvenating techniques that use heat to activate the subcutaneous fibroblasts, radio frequency skin tightening is currently the most advanced system with regards to timescale and costs. Clients undergoing radio frequency skin tightening treatment can return to their usual rountines immediately after treatment.

Key Benefits include:

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles

The Results

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance or fine lines and wrinkles by tightening the skin. The effects of radio frequency skin tightening are not immediate but are gradual and become more noticeable as the days and weeks go by, reaching their maximum effect even as long as 4 months after the treatment. Significant results are achieved in the areas of the cheeks, forehead, neck, hips abdomen and thighs.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is able to specifically target problematic local areas that require treatment with excellent results. It is also able to re-activate all the areas where cellulite accumulates (hips, abdomen, knees and thighs). The effect achieved during the session is stable and lasts for many months in areas of reduced volumes, while in the more voluminous areas such as the abdomen, legs and arms, periodic repeat treatments are required to maintain the results achieved.

Short Term: The retraction of collagen fibres (lengthwise and depthwise). This promotes skin tightness, which becomes visible even after one treatment. Facial skin appears firmer and more toned.

Long Term: The more long term effect tends to take 3-6 for the collagen to remodel. This is about the amount of time it takes for the swelling to fully resolve.

Aftercare

Post treatment, clients are advised to use a quality moisturizing lotion or cream on the treatment area. We also recommend drinking plenty of water (2 litres per day) in order to ensure that your skin remains hydrated.

Frequently Asked Questions

During the Radio Frequency treatment, the dermal layer of the skin is gently heated using electrical energy. This causes no damage whatsoever to outer layer of skin. This process causes the collagen beneath the skin to re-model itself immediately. Further improvement continues over the following weeks/months.

Radio Frequency is a clinically proven, safe treatment. There are very rarely any side effects involved after treatment. Some clients however, may experience a mild redness but this will subside 1-2 hours after the procedure.

The number of treatments required varies patient-to-patient, depending on the desired result. We recommend one session every one to three weeks with an overall average of 6 sessions in a treatment program. This will ensure optimum results.

The Radio Frequency Skin Tightening treatment is known for being a relaxing and comfortable treatment. There is no pain involved whatsoever. In fact, some clients have even drifted off to sleep during the treatment. Clients describe the treatment as being ‘relaxing and therapeutic’.

Your therapist will discuss this with you when you have your free consultation as several conditions can exclude patients from being eligible for treatment. You must be over 18 years of age. You will not be able to receive treatment if you are pregnant, suffer with heart disease, have a pacemaker fitted, suffer from cancer or epilepsy. Anyone who is currently suffering from a form of skin disease or infection in the area to be treated is advised to seek medical advice first. Once the condition has been treated, the client may return for their Radio Frequency skin tightening treatment.

Each treatment session takes approximately 30-45 minutes depending on the area being treated.

Clients need to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. Therefore sunbathing or using a sun bed is not advisable. Please take into consideration for women, often the skin is more sensitive before and during their menstrual cycle, so please consider this prior to scheduling an appointment.
