Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency (RF) works best in the treatment of saggy skin, wrinkles, stretch marks. This painless procedure helps in the stimulation of new growth of collagen in the dermis. Without question, this is the strongest and most effective technology for skin tightening and fat reduction, yet it is the most comfortable. While undergoing the procedure, you will experience warmness, at the most a dull tingly feeling. The process breaks through the epidermis, or top layer of the skin, using a mono-polar and/or bi-polar radio frequency, but leaves the top layer undamaged. It is especially good for attacking stretch marks, which it does from the inside out.

  • What types of Radiofrequency are available?

  • There are two types of RF that have been found to be the most effective:

    • Monopolar Radiofrequency

    • Bipolar Radiofrequency

  • Bipolar Radiofrequency is most often used to tighten and rejuvenate the skin especially on and around the facial areas and has been proven to show outstanding results. Monopolar Radiofrequency is most frequently used for non-surgical body contouring.  It is especially effective for fat and cellulite reduction.

  • How does RF with Skin Needling treatment work?

  • Rejuvenation by non-surgical RF with the Skin Needling device stimulates the skin to produce new collagen in the dermis. This is done be delivering heat energy of radiofrequency to the second layer of skin, dermis by dozens of tiny needles.  This increased collagen production helps to achieve a firm and younger looking skin without any surgery.

  • How Radiofrequency (RF) reduce skin puffiness?

  • Blood and lymph flow are increased as a result of the pulsating "rejuvenation" action of radiofrequency current.  The excess lymph is more quickly dispersed through the body and the blood also moves faster. This results in a reduction in the appearance of congested, tired, puffy eyes in particular.  The used skin care products absorb more efficiently following Radiofrequency treatments, thereby extending their effectiveness.

  • How Radiofrequency (RF) works on fading of Dark Eye Circles?

  • It has been found that one of the primary causes of severe dark eye circles is due to broken capillaries that have leaked haemoglobin, creating a red-blue pigment deposit under the eyes. Because of the circulation rush to the area caused by Radiofrequency, under eye products can penetrate more deeply into the skin tissue. It has been found that Radiofrequency can very effectively help with the fading of dark under eye circles. This results in a fresher, brighter, more youthful looking appearance.

  • What will be happen during the treatment?

  • The movement of the special hand held device is helped along by a lubricating gel that is applied over the treatment area. The practitioner works systematically across the area being addressed, delivering targeted RF energy to it. When the treatment is concluded, a soothing gel may then be applied to your skin.

  • Which areas can be treated?

  • The device used in our clinic suitable for use on both the face and body.

  • How long does treatment take?

  • Depending upon the size of the area being treated, it typically takes from 30-60 minutes.

  • How many sessions will be needed?

  • We usually recommend an average of 6-8 sessions in a treatment programme.

  • What is the interval between the sessions?

  • We usually recommend that patients have a single session (per area) every 1-2 weeks. We suggest that you continue to have a monthly maintenance session to retain your optimum level.

  • Is there any after care?

  • Although not necessary for everyone, you may find that you will want to apply a cooling or soothing product to the treated area following a session, however UV protection cream truly advised to use on the treatment area. Normal activities are resumed by most individuals immediately after treatment.

  • Are there any risks and complications?

  • It has been found that the most common side effects of RF treatment are some swelling, redness or bruising, rarely superficial burning around the treated area. This usually subsides and disappears within a few days. These contra-actions are due to the heating up of the skin and underlying tissue from the Radiofrequency energy. Our device has inbuilt cooling mechanisms to protect your skin from the heat and make the treatment more comfortable.

FAQs:‚Äč

  • How does Radiofrequency work?

  • The radiofrequency delivered by an applicator that produces heat within the inner layer of the skin. Both the superficial and deep skin tissue are heated causing an immediate tightening of the collagen. The process assists the body by concentrating of collagen fibres and this, in turn leads to a quicker regeneration of the collagen and elastin that we are losing all the time and producing at a slower rate as we age. The results are a firmer, a firmer, tighter skin. It is guaranteed that with repeated treatments, the changes become semi-permanent, since nothing in the human body can remain permanent and we are ageing all the time.
