What is Radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency’ is the latest generation of non-surgical, non-invasive skin repair procedure, without incurring any down time. Radiofrequency stimulates the deep dermal structures within the skin without causing damage to the surface which causes the body’s natural healing and cell regenerating process to reverse the signs of ageing.
How does it work?
The Radio Frequency skin tightening device has a delivery depth of approximately 4mm, targeting the dermal tissue and creating a healthier and tighter dermis. It does this by gently heating the dermis and subcutaneous layers to 40-42 degrees which in turn stimulates fibroblast action resulting in the synthesis of new collagen and elastin.
How many treatments will I need?
Although results are visible after just one treatment, a course of treatments is recommended initially to optimise results namely once a week for a series of 6-8 treatments. Regular maintenance treatments will then achieve the best results over a longer period of time.
Are there any side effects?
There maybe some slight redness and swelling following treatment but patients can resume normal activities immediately afterwards. You will be fully consulted before any treatment to discuss the side effects in detail.
