What is it?

RF stands for radio frequency sound waves. This technology has been around for over 60 years it is a safe, non-invasive way of tightening loose or skin laxity around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, jaw line and jowls.

How does it work?

It works by delivery of energy (in the form of heat) to the dermis (the deepest layer of skin) and sub-dermal layers without damaging the top layer of skin or epidermis. Heating in this area causes collagen contraction, realignment and new collagen production which continue to build over several months by promoting the production of healthy collagen. Radio Frequency treatments can help to firm and sculpt your face resulting in tighter, younger looking skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I see results?

To achieve long-term consistency of tighter, firmer skin, we recommend 6-8 treatments. The results are due to natural changes in the skin and as such are on-going and long lasting. These can be enhanced with good evidence based skincare, UV protection and periodic top-up treatments.

Will the results last?

Results vary from patient to patient. They can last up 12 months or more based on the client's natural aging process and sun and environmental exposure. A maintenance treatment periodically will help maintain results. It is also worth noting that when RF therapy is used in combination with other modalities such as IPL, Hydrafacial, micro current, the results derived from RF treatments can be enhanced.

How does it feel?

You will feel a warm sensation which will slowly get warmer. Most clients will find the treatments comfortable and relaxing.

What should I do before the treatment?

You should try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes sunbathing (natural or artificial). Therapists are unlikely to treat someone who has sun burn for example, as they would be more likely to suffer pain from the addition of heat to the already damaged skin; however an established tan would be fine.

What happens during the treatment?

The skin is prepared by cleansing, toning, a skin analysis and exfoliating a peptide gel is then applied to the skin. Then the radio frequency is applied using a tripolar electrode in circular massaging motions, the client feels a nice warm in the skin which is nice and relaxing. After the whole face is completed an LED canopy is placed over the clients face to improve the skin cells metabolism and greater the effects of the treatment.

Radio frequency technology has revolutionized the removal of wrinkles and fine lines. It helps drive the product even deeper into the dermis and cutaneous layers of the skin, providing a three step approach in: Lifting, firming, plumping and reduction of wrinkles, improved skin tightness, and promotes natural production of your own collagen.

As we age, sun exposure, environmental factors, and stress affect the skin’s elasticity and strength, causing unwanted lines in our faces. Radio frequency technology, which has already been tested as a viable treatment for stretch marks, has recently gained traction as a wrinkle removal solution, too. In August of 2009, the FDA approved radio frequency treatment for the reduction of facial wrinkles.
