About this treatment
We can use this versatile treatment technology to address a wide range of conditions, treating the face, jawline, neck and body.
Treatment is given using a hand-held device that emits radio waves that are absorbed by the skin. These radio waves heat the skin’s tissues from within, in turn stimulating collagen and elastin production and tightening and lifting the skin.
Initial results for the face are noticeable almost immediately with further improvement over the weeks following treatment. Results for contouring the body are usually start to become visible after 3 treatment sessions. A course of treatments is recommended to ensure best results.
Frequently asked questions
Is this treatment right for me?Radiofrequency is suitable for almost all skin types and suitable for anyone over 18 years of age. It will not be recommended if you are pregnant, breast-feeding or are taking certain medication. This will be disused with you at your patient consultation.
How does this treatment work?Radiofrequency works by transferring energy beneath the skin’s surface, which then turns to heat. This heat stimulates sub-dermal collagen production, remodelling, tightening and lifting the skin. A special gel is applied before the hand-held radiofrequency device is passed over the treatment area, to help the transfer of energy from the device to the sub dermal layers.
Will I feel any pain during my treatment?No. Patients often say that they find this treatment relaxing and very comfortable.
Are there any side effects or risks associated with this treatment?No.
