How does Radio-frequency Work?

It works in a number of ways:

1. Tissue Retraction: The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibres, thereby immediately tightening the skin to remodel and rejuvenate the previous effects of ageing.

2. New Collagen Formation by local fibroblasts is stimulated by heating the dermis and it then acts as a new deep foundation for the skin. This produces further delayed tightening which only becomes evident slowly over the next few months.

3. Improved Circulation: Radio-frequency also improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage, thereby providing a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to reduce the further effects of ageing.

This unique combination of processes thus provides both an immediate uplifting effect but also further longer term skin tightening, restructuring and rejuvenating benefits.

 

How the Treatment Process works?

How the Treatment Process works?

RF heats the fat cells in the adipose layer. The heat forces the adipocytes to secrete fatty acids into the lymph nodes and blood vessels, where it is filtered out of the body. As fatty acids are released, the adipocytes shrink and the body becomes slimmer.

 

Skin Tightening Process

RF heats both the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin. This causes the collagen fibers in the treated area to contract. The contractions of these fibers tighten the skin creating an immediate effect. This energy also increases the metabolism of fibroblasts resulting in the production of new collagen fibers. This production results in long term effects.

 

Cellulite Reduction Process

The enlargement of fat cells in the hypodermis pushes the dermis against fibrous connective tissue causing cellulite. Using ultrasound to explode these fat cells removes the cellulite and immediately slims and tightens skin.

 

Is it safe?

Radio-frequency has an excellent safety record and has been used in dermatology, cardiology, neurosurgery and ENT for over 70 years.

 

How does the treatment feel?

It is entirely pain-free and has no down-time. In fact, the procedure actually feels very pleasant and soothing, akin to a hot stone massage.

 

How many treatments will I need?

We normally recommend a course of 6 treatments at weekly intervals in the first instance because it works by heating tissues deep within the skin to stimulate blood flow and collagen production for brighter, firmer skin with an immediate eye lift. Thereafter, you can attend for periodic top-ups as you feel appropriate, typically every 3 months may be advisable.

 

Do I need any after-care?

No, in fact you can go straight back to work after a lunch-time session with immediately visible benefits. However, to enhance the longevity of the treatment, we would recommend smoking cessation and the application of a moisturiser with a high factor sun block .

 

Is radio-frequency suitable for everyone?

Generally, yes because it is suitable for all skin colours but it cannot be used in patients with pacemakers, metal plates or pins in the treatment area, severe heart disease, connective tissue diseases, pregnant or breastfeeding women, etc.

 

Are there any other options?

Other methods of skin tightening include Nd:YAG lasers and surgical face-lifts but radiofrequency is now considered the gold standard, non-surgical method of skin tightening as it provides the very best balance of results with comfort.
