Radio Frequency Facial Treatment will target deeper layers of skin, heating them up. This stimulation of the skin and in particular, the collagen, a substance which gives elasticity to the skin. The radio frequencies cause water molecules in the deeper layers of skin to vibrate. This in turn creates friction which causes the heating effect. When heat is applied to collagen fibres, they shrink and tighten up, and over time following the treatment, new collagen also forms. Whilst the deeper skin layers are being heated.
What Will Radio Frequency Facial Treatment Achieve?
The treatment can be to tighten any loose and sagging skin. It is also suitable for any age group. After treatment the skin contours more to the body as it has tightened up and it will also become rejuvenated, being younger and fresher in appearance. It is effectively used on areas of the face and neck. It is an appropriate treatment for the face because the ageing process sees a reduction in the amount of fat, particularly on the cheeks. Instead of plumping out the tissues (the outcome of filler treatments), it simply aims to tighten up the sagging skin.
What About After The Treatment?
The great news is that there is no recovery time, no healing scars, no anaesthetic required and little or no pain during or after the treatment. All that may be noticed is a slight reddening of the skin for about one day. The collagen tightening occurs at the actual time of treatment but new collagen is also stimulated to form over time after the treatment.
The treatment is very effective with lasting results but we would strongly advise a course of 6-8 treatments for optimum results with maintenance treatments every 6-8 weeks , depending on the individuals ageing process, Your treatment will last approx 45-60 mins per session.
