Radiofrequency (RF) is a successful treatment used to stimulate the collagen production and also tighten and strengthen the skin’s structure, painlessly and with no downtime. Radiofrequency is a non-invasive method of tightening loose or lax skin on the body. Radiofrequency treatment uses electrical pulses. It heats the dermis(the deepest skin layer) through hand peiced without dmaging the epidermis (the top layers of the skin) to stimulate new collagen growth and provide and improvement in skin laxity and appearance, to remodel and enhance the skin with minimal risks.
So how will it contour and tighten my skin?
As our skin matures, the collagen and elastin proteins which help support a tight skin structure, start to break down. And as skin loses elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles and a dull or saggy appearance are never far away.
The radio frequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and fat cells drain then shrink, while those all important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue) are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibres. The effect of this is tighter, smoother, younger looking skin with a visible ‘lift’ . Fat cells are reduced and stubborn cellulite looks a lot less noticeable.
Can anyone have the treatment?
It is a safe procedure but a detailed consultation will be carried out along with a medical history. The treatment is not suitable for patients with kidney failure, with liver failure, those with a pacemaker or other electronic devices, pregnant women, nursing mothers, patients with hypertriglyceridemia or hypercholesterolemia.
Which areas of the body can be treated & how long does the procedure take?
The treatment can be performed on the stomach, buttocks, back, calves, knees, thighs, arms, back and chin. The course of treatment can only be undertaken on one body area at a time. The procedure takes approximately 30 – 40 minutes dependent on the size of area being treated.
How many treatments will I need?
To see maximum results a course of 8 treatments is recommended per body area. The treatments should be undertaken at 10 day intervals.
How much does it cost?
The normal cost per treatment is £100.00 however we do recommend to receive the full effects that the client completes a full course of 8 treatments.
