With Spring having finally arrived, now is the time for replenishment, growth and rejuvenation. One of the most increasingly favoured facial skin care cosmetic treatments is ´skin tightening.´
Nu Cosmetic´s specialist Nurse, June Clements, talks us through a patient treatment case study which involves one of our regular clients, Angela, receiving a ´Bio-Polar´ skin tightening treatment.
With this revolutionary application, the skin is gently heated to 39-42 degrees centigrade. At this temperature, the skin contacts with the localised heat application which in turn produces collagen which natural plumps out the skin and encourages Oxygen flow and stimulation for that extra ´healthy glow.´
A layer of gel is applied to the face while the radio frequency attachment is placed over the skin skimming the surface for between 4-10 minutes depending on the patient’s skin condition.
Skin smoothing with Nu Cosmetic Clinic presents no discomfort or
´down time´. A slight localised redness of the skin after the treatment is common, which disappears within several hours.
The results can vary with each individual patient according to their age, level of sun damage and lifestyle and the skin regeneration can be improved by avoiding sauna / swimming pool environments along with acid based cosmetics for several days after the procedure. As normal skin care practice, sun protection creams and moisturisers should be applied. You can find out more about the treatment here.
