Radio-Frequency tightens and smoothes the skin, promoting the production of new collagen in facial treatments, and aiding in the reduction of cellulite in body treatments. Radio-frequency heats the skin to stimulate new collagen production.
This minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles resulting in overall skin tightening.
Radio-Frequency can penetrate into the subcutaneous and deeper dermal layers of the skin, the heat produced in the targeted regions can result in the stimulation of the body's natural collagen.
The immediate results of radio-frequency treatment are not extreme and are best achieved over a course of time.
Which areas can be treated ?
What are the prospective results ?
During a radio-frequency body treatment we will tailor a treatment plan applicable to your desired outcome. We can treat:
It is important to understand that in order to achieve optimal results a course of 8-12 treatments once a week should be considered and preferably undertaken. The prospective results visible as a result of body treatment are ;
improved body contours
reduction in visible cellulite
improved skin texture and tone
firmer skin with better elasticity
How does Radio-Frequency chemically take effect ?
Cellulite becomes visible when fat clusters in the dermis become distended and elastin fibres become rigid, causing dimpling on the surface.
During a radio-frequency body treatment, heat produced disrupts the fat clusters and over time new elastin fibres are produced results in smoother skin.
Collagen and elastin are fibres make up the supporting structure of the skin. Collagen is a protein which supports your body's tissues and literally keeps your body from falling apart.
Elastin as the name implies enables your skin to stretch and bounce back.
Both of these fibres are plentiful in youth and start to break down with the natural ageing process and as a result of sun exposure. This is the cause of visibly aged and wrinkled skin.
Radio-frequency works by stimulating the production of new collagen fibres to produce visibly smoother and firmer skin.
Radio-frequency treatments additionally stimulate metabolism, increase lymphatic circulation, increase blood circulation and hasten the removal of fatty cells in conjunction with dietary changes.

Heating of skin tissues during a radio-frequency treatment shrinks collagen fibres by up to a third, resulting in tighter firmer skin.
