Sagging skin on the neck, decollete and face along with wrinkles are common problems associated with ageing. This is mainly due to the decreasing amount of collagen production as skin loses it’s elasticity.
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 around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, jaw line, jowls and also the area under the chin and neck. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, whilst improving the skin tone and texture.
How does Radiofrequency work?
The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibres immediately tightening the skin to remodel and rejuvenate the effects of ageing.
The local fibroblasts stimulate the collagen formation by heating the dermis and it then acts as a new deep foundation for the skin. This produces further delayed tightening which become visible over a few months.
Radiofrequency also improves blood flow, encourages lymphatic drainage and provides a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance.
Is the procedure safe?
It is a safe procedure that can applied to almost anyone but a detailed consultation will be carried out along with a complete report of your medical history. Clients with kidney failure, liver failure, carrying a pacemaker or other electronic devices, pregnancy, breast feeding, diabetic, high blood pressure should avoid this treatment.
