RF Skin Tightening & Cellulite Treatment
There are many benefits of the Radio Frequency treatment which has led to the treatments increasing popularity and celebrity following, with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Amanda Holden and Mel B now favouring the treatment over injectables.
What Is Radio Frequency ?
A course of Radio Frequency treatments will help to lift, firm and tighten skin by aiding the skin’s own ability to produce collagen and elastin. Skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin & acne scarring are targeted. Post treatment your skin will continue to improve thanks to increased collagen and elastin production.
Radio Frequency is quick, convenient and painless, immediately revealing tighter, younger looking skin, all without the cost and pain of cosmetic procedures promising similar results.
How Does RF procedure 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.
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.
How Many Treatment Are Recommend ?
Is The Treatment Painful ?
A course of 6 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.
The treatment should feel very warming on the skin but not painful. Most people find the treatment very relaxing and pleasant. The therapist will always ask for your feedback to ensure the treatment is enjoyable and not uncomfortable.
