RADIO FREQUENCY

Radio Frequency is a non-invasive treatment that uses radio waves directed through a probe head which is massaged onto the skin. The radio waves are directed at the skin to produce a heating effect. Skin tightening targets deep layers of skin, heating them up. This creates stimulation of the skin and in particular, collagen, a substance that gives elasticity to the skin. Whilst the deeper skin layers are being heated.

The treatment can be used on any part of the body to tighten any loose, lax and sagging skin. 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, tummy, upper arms and thighs. But it can be used on any part of the body that requires the skin to be tightened.

Results can be noticed straight away and we have recorded results from clients that dress sizes have been dropped with full-body sessions, however, with this said we recommend at least 4 treatments per area for maximum results, 2-3 days apart.

  • What causes the skin to age?
    Sooner or later, the years catch up with us. As we grow older the Dermal layer of the skin becomes thinner, less collagen is produced and the elastin fibres, which provide elasticity wear out. Over time, Sebaceous glands get bigger, whilst producing less sebum (the oily matter that lubricates the skin) and so the number of sweat glands get smaller, causing skin dryness. These changes in the scaffolding of the skin, cause it to loose laxity, texture and get saggy and wrinkly. We also become more susceptiable to hyper-pigmentation, discolouration and photo damage, expecially from exposure to the sun's radiation and smoking among other factors. Our ultimate goal, of our Fibroblast treatment is to help dramatically repair, all of these effects for a more youthful appearance.
  • Why Fibroblast/Plasma Treatment?
    The name comes from one of the most important cells in this treatment, which are the fibroblasts. These are the most common cells in the connective tissues. Most importantly, they synthesize the extracellular matrix and connective tissue fibres (including the cruical collagen and elastin). As you may guess, the rejuvenation process begins with the manipulation of these cell's activities. The fibroblast treatment works by rejuvenating skin around the face and neck. This includes lower and upper eyelid tightening, neck tightening, facelift, lip wrinkles, smile lines, stretch marks and others.
  • How does the treatment work??
    We target fibroblast cells, to create very precise heat induced trauma, shortly after these injuries occur, inflammation starts and blood flow to the region, which increases as the skin repairs itself. This process activates and stimulates the fibroblast cells, to lay down new collagen cells. The fibroblast cells leave behind new collagen and elastin cells as they spread inwards towards the trauma. For weeks after the trauma, the fibroblast cells will continue to produce new collagen. Tiny plasma flashes are discharged from the tip of the handpiece. This creates a dot upon contact with the skin. There are no cuts, blood or damage to the skin. These tiny plasma flashes cause "crusts" to form on the skin, giving the distinctive dotting effect. These on average are gone between 5-7 days. The skin is numbed before each treatment. It takes around 30 mins to complete, depending on the area, you are left with slight redness around the eyes and slight swelling occuring within 1-3 days. After 7 days, the marks disappear and the redness will have gone by 3 weeks
  • What are the advantages of this treatment over cosmetic surgery?
    Here are some of the benefits that come with this treatment: - No scapels and No cutting. - No stiches required. - Very low risk treatment. - Minimal side effects and very short downtime. - Quick and easy treatment with rapid recovery. - No thinning of the skin. - Significant cost savings compared to alternatives. - Lon lasting results 2-3 Years.
  • What areas are best for this treatment?
    Skin tightening using the fibroblast treatment, can work wonders around the eyes and all over the face and neck. If you are concerned about how your eyelids have started to droop or looking for a treatment for the bags under your eyes, the fibroblast treatment is a great alternative to cosmetic surgery. It can also be used on stretch marks. If you have concerns about the best treatment for wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, then this treatment is a great and longer lasting alternative to Botox and Fillers. You may have some acne scars or saggy facial skin, that needs tightening, then this is the treatment for you.
  • Is the treatment safe and does it hurt?
    Local anesthetic is applied prior to the treatment, to minimise any discomfort and the treatment is then virtually painless. The treatment may feel hot in places and there may be a tingling or burning sensation after
  • Are there any side effects from the treatment?
    Straight after your treatment, the area may be red. 1-2 days after your treatment, swelling may occur. After roughly 5-7 days, somtimes longer as everyones skin is different, the scabs that have formed will disappear. The new skin that appears may be slightly pink for up to 4 weeks while the healing process takes place.
  • How many treatments will be needed?
    This varies from each client depending on whst you are hoping to achieve.
  • What results can i expect after the treatment?
    Final results after depend on severity of skin laxity, the desired result, the general condition of the skin and pre exisiting skin and medical conditions. Reductions in skin folds and creases appear immediately.
