What Is It:
Radio Frequency (R.F.) Skin Tightening is a Non-Invasive and Non-Surgical body sculpting treatment that uses Radio Frequency energy to stimulate the structures under the skin. Without causing damage to the surface, this energy is controlled and limited to the treatment area. Key advantages of this technology result in cell regeneration and the body naturally healing to reverse the sign of ageing.
R.F. penetrates the skin layers and heats the skin tissue, where in response the collagen fibres begin contracting and re-modelling, effectively thickening and leading to immediate results. This process tightens the skin layers creating smoother, healthier and younger looking skin. Over time this will continue, gradually improving the quality of your skin and a decrease in deep wrinkles.
What To Expect During Treatment:
Firstly, an ultrasound gel is placed onto the skin, which acts as a conductor for the RF energy. Then a hand piece with metal probes will be placed onto the skin and moved in gentle circular motions around the skin. You will hear a slight beeping noise coming from the machine, the hand piece will get warmer and warmer, building heat until it reaches 40 degrees.
Your therapist will use an infrared thermometer to measure the heat of the skin. Once the temperature has built up to 40 degrees, your therapist will continue to maintain the heat, continuing treatment on the area for 2 – 4 minutes, before moving onto the next area.
You can expect minimal discomfort during the session but may, however, depending on each individual’s skin tolerance, experience temporary redness once the procedure is over. Sensitivity to the area being treated could last for up to 24 hours.*
What Areas Can Be Improved & Results:
Areas on the Face & Body with loose skin and cellulite. Common treatment areas include saggy skin around the face, stomach, arms, thighs and lower abdomen. Results can be seen from the very FIRST treatment*, however a course of treatments are recommended as results are further improved after each treatment.
