Radio Frequency Facial
A Radio Frequency facial is a great treatment to help lift, firm and tighten skin. This type of facial has become increasingly popular in recent years and uses radio frequency energy to heat the dermis and tighten the skin without damaging the top layer.
Radio Frequency (RF) is a painless and effective treatment with visible results immediately after treatment. All without the cost and pain of invasive cosmetic procedures.
How does Radio Frequency facial work?
Radio frequency works by stimulating your own collagen production. During the treatment, we use a state-of-the-art machine to heat the skin with radio frequency, this feels like a hot stone face massage.
Immediately after treatment, you will notice a tightening of the collagen fibres, which makes it a perfect facial for events or before a wedding. Additionally, the facial gives a long-lasting lift and increased volume. It also continues to promote collagen production over the four-six weeks following a treatment.
The results of a radiofrequency facelift:
- Firmer skin
- Skin tightening
- Reduced nasolabial grooves
- Raises drooping eyelids
- Blurs and smoothens expression lines (e.g. fine wrinkles and crow’s feet)
- Reduces the appearance of cellulite
How is radio frequency different from other treatments?
Like laser and LED treatments, radio frequency uses energy to stimulate elastin and collagen. However, the main difference between RF and lasers is that heat energy is electrical rather than light based.
Are there any side-effects of radio frequency?
Radio frequency offers no downtime, meaning it has no side-effects. The is often labeled the “lunchtime facelift” because after each session the patient can follow a normal daily routine, unlike the effects associated with anesthesia of surgical procedure.
How many Radio Frequency facials do I need?
Many people only have one treatment. Following treatment, you will notice immediate results. Furthermore, you will be able to see 80% of results for up to two years, but this varies between patients.
Many of our clients prefer to book a course of radio frequency treatments to achieve maximum results. We recommend a course 6-8 weekly with monthly maintenance for best results.
The Benefits of Radio Frequency treatment
This treatment focuses on an area of concern on the face or neck where collagen loss is present. This helps to tighten the skin and reduce lines and wrinkles.
Skin Tightening uses a Focus Fractional Radio Frequency energy that is heat induced to penetrate deep down into the dermis of the skin causing the contraction of collagen fibres to get an immediate plumping effect.
This will also increase the synthesis of new collagen and elastin fibres and assists product infusion. Collagen takes 14-21 days to synthesise, therefore you may see the best results in the 3rd/4th treatment.
The tightening and lifting effect works well on foreheads, double chins, around the eyes and around the mouth.
