Radio Frequency FAQ

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Science

Even with a healthy lifestyle and good genes, the effects of ageing are inevitable. Ageing can cause our skin to wrinkle and lose its youthful complexion. A remedying approach often requires the use of anaesthesia and invasive procedures, which can result in a number of hazardous impediments, including blood clots and nerve damage.

The effectiveness of radiofrequency skin tightening science has been well documented in independent research journals and we encourage our patients to research the procedures themselves as well as reading the information we provide on the site. This gives our patients peace of mind as it facilitates an unbiased opinion of the procedures we offer.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Science

As people become aware of the complications related to cosmetic surgery, it is no surprise that radio frequency is generating legitimate interest. This intelligent approach has the potential to safely and painlessly combat the effects of ageing with the use of electromagnetic radiation. A frequency between 3-300Ghz penetrates the epidermis and heats the dermis to around 40 degrees.

In response, the collagen, fibres begin contracting and remodelling, effectively thickening and leading to immediate results. Additional collagen fibres synthesis occurs due to the healing process of the skin, induced by the heat. Over time this will continue, gradually improving the quality of your skin*.
