Radio Frequency is a revolutionary treatment that firms, tightens and lifts the skin, all without having to go under the knife. The treatment is non-invasive so it is ideal for those who either don’t want, or do not believe they are old enough for surgical procedures. Favoured by celebrities such as Amanda Holden and Mel B, radio frequency is gaining lots of followers.
Unlike other ‘non-surgical facelift’ treatments on the market, radio frequency actually stimulates the skin’s own natural renewal of collagen, resulting in smoother, tighter and younger looking skin. And the best thing is – Radio Frequency delivers great, visible results from the very first treatment. The treatment is suitable for everybody, especially those looking to target fine lines and wrinkles or excess skin.
"What can radio frequency treat?"
Most people believe that Radio Frequency is just a facial treatment but that’s not the case. Radio Frequency can be used to treat a great number of areas and conditions over the body.
"How does radio frequency treatment work?"
Radio Frequency gently heats the lower levels of the skin to approximately 40°c; this tricks the brain into thinking there has been a potential injury, and stimulates a healing response. This in turn causes increased collagen production and tightening of elastin fibres.
"What are the benefits of radio frequency treatment?"
A course of Radio Frequency treatments will help to lift, firm and tighten skin through aiding the skins own ability to produce collagen and elastin, targeting concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin & acne scarring.
"Are there any downsides to radio frequency treatment?
There are very few downsides to the Radio Frequency treatment. You may experience a slight warmness to the skin immediately after the treatment; this will fade as your skin returns to normal temperature. You may also experience a slightly flushed appearance immediately after the treatment due to the gentle heat of the wand; again, this should subside within an hour or so as the skin cools.
People with electrical devices e.g. Pacemakers, or those with metal implants such as metal hip joints, heart valves or dental plates should not have Radio Frequency treatment because it may interfere with these devices or heat metal implants.
