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 treatment 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.
This has a much longer lasting effect, especially over a course of 8-12 treatments, especially greater than the more short term effects of injected collagen from a foreign substance.
The immediate results of a radio-frequency treatment are not extreme and are best achieved over a course of time.
Which areas can be treated ?
Face, neck and décolletage
Jaw line & under eye area
Nasal labial folds - mouth to nose lines
Marionette lines - chin to mouth lines
Glabeller lines - frown lines
Crow's feet - smile lines
The upper cheeks
What are the prospective results ?
It is important to understand that in order to achieve optimal results a course of 8-12 treatmets once a week should be considered and preferably undertaken. The prospective results visible as a result of facial treatment are ;
improved facial contours
reduction in visible lines and wrinkles
improved skin texture and tone
firmer skin with better elasticity
How does Radio-Frequency chemically take effect ?
Collagen and elastin are fibres that 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.
