Radio Frequency Skin Tightening FAQ
How does it work?
Electromagnetic radiation below the range of 300GHz pierces the skin, effectively heating the dermis to approximately 40 degrees. The dermis is the skin layer below the epidermis. This gradually modifies the collagen fibres, causing them to contract and condense (see research). Additional collagen fibres synthesis occurs due to the healing process of the skin, induced by the heat. This eventually results in tighter and healthier looking skin.
Are there any side affects?
Radio frequency is completely safe, with earlier types of RF technology either penetrating too deeply or overheating. Conversely, our technology causes no side-effects, other than a little temporary soreness.
How long will it take me to recover?
How many sessions will I need?
Who is an ideal candidate?
An ideal candidate is anyone who feels they can benefit from tighter, healthier looking skin. All skin types are suitable.
Is there an age limit?
Patients must be older than 18.
What happens during the treatment?
Skin Tightening FAQ: Each session will begin with a cleansing to remove any makeup or oils, which could interfere with the treatment. A practitioner will then apply a numbing cream to the targeted area for a few movements before the treatment begins. During the treatment, your temperature will be monitored to ensure the skin surface remains at 40 degrees.
Throughout the session, you are able to listen to music, watch a movie and use the iPads.
What areas can I have treated?
Radio frequency is used on any part of the body which may be loosening, sagging or wrinkling. Including the face.
