Radio Frequency 

Radio Frequency 

Its principle relies on using radio frequency energy to heat the skin to a precise temperature for a precise amount of time in order to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, thereby tightening the skin.
Radio frequency can be performed as a standalone treatment for skin tightening or combined with ultrasonic cavitation for complete body contouring.

Tissue retraction

The generated heat caused local contraction of the collagen fibers which immediately tighten the skin.

New collagen formation

By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated. Improved circulation Radio frequency will also improve the blood and lymphatic flow. This helps with a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to further reduce the effects of ageing.

Which body parts are best for Radiofrequency? 

The treatment can be used on any part of the body to tighten any loose and sagging skin. It is also suitable for any age group. 
It is effectively used on areas of the face and neck, the breasts and tummy, and upper arms and thighs. But it can be used on any part of the body that requires the skin to be firmed. It is an appropriate treatment for the face because the ageing process sees a reduction in the amount of fat, particularly on the cheeks. Instead of plumping out the tissues (the outcome of filler treatments), it simply aims to tighten up the sagging skin in areas such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and jowls.

How many times and how often should I have the treatments? 

We recommend a series of 6-12 treatments about one week apart, with the best effect being seen two months following the final treatment. Dependent on the number and how deep the lines and wrinkle are is dependent on the number of treatments required. Many clients like to have monthly treatments as a preventative to aging and to keep their face looking it’s best.
