What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Skin begins to sag in our 30’s due to decreased collagen production. By our 40’s our bodies produce very little or no collagen, creating lines, wrinkles and general sagging, particularly around the eyes, neck and chin.
Radio frequency is a new method of tightening skin without the need for surgery or invasive treatments. It is one of the safest methods available and is suitable for all skin colours and types. Radio waves stimulate your skin to produce collagen and elastin, creating tighter more youthful looking skin. Radio frequency can be used on any part of the body, however we tend to see the best results on the face, neck and décolletage. It is great for the jaw line, naso-labial folds (the lines between the nose and mouth), lines around the eyes, under eye bags and lines on the neck and chest. Before your treatment, we request that you come in and have a chat to one of our practitioners to check your suitability, set a treatment plan and perform a patch test.
Prior to the treatment, a special gel will be applied to your skin. This gel allows the radio frequencies to penetrate deep into the dermis whilst also protecting your skin. The radio frequency waves are applied via a probe which is passed gently over your skin. This causes heat to be passed down to the deep layers of the skin, the dermis. The heat makes the cells vibrate which the brain perceives as injury, responding with production of collagen and elastin and increasing oxygen delivery to the skin. This is the body’s normal response to injury and has the effect of tightening and firming the skin whilst the increased oxygen makes skin appear rejuvenated.
Results vary depending on the initial condition of your skin however you should start to see results after the first few treatments. For best results we recommend 8-10 treatments (one every week or fortnight) and then occasional maintenance treatments thereafter.

Following the treatment your skin will appear flushed but this will pass in a few hours. Make up can be worn immediately afterwards and you should not feel any pain or discomfort.
