Radio frequency is a non-surgical treatment that can tighten up loose skin, reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. It also works on the body by reducing fat, improving cellulite and stretch marks.
How it works
Without getting into physics, radio frequency warms the body by means of an electric current.
It carefully heats the deep layers of our skin, which then makes the collagen fibres you already have tighten, it then also stimulates the cells to produce new collagen, which in tale gives you tighter firmer skin.
So why all about collagen
Collagen is the protein in our skin that helps keep it strong, full and wrinkle free.
Would you believe it that after the age of 20, we produce 1 % less collagen with each passing year.
As a result, the ageing process starts and we start to lose the strength and shape of our skin creating sagging and wrinkles. This is where radio frequency can come in to help as it will increase collagen which will create tighter/firmer skin.
The treatment takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on which body parts are being treated. It can be used on any body part which loose of collagen or fat deposits.
It is not a painful procedure, firstly gel is applied to the skin to help the tool slide smoothly across the skin. You will feel a warm feeling as your skin starts to heats up to a safe temperature.
To get optimal result we would advise 6-8 treatments. But something to be aware of is that new collagen growth doesn’t happen immediately after radio frequency your skin will become tighter for up to six months after your last session.
There are very few side effects associated with treatment, your skin might be slightly red and tender after treatment but that calms down pretty quickly. So most people can be considered for treatment but a consultation before treatment is a most.
