Skin Tightening and Cellulite Reduction

Radio-frequency is a safe and non-invasive procedure which can tighten the face, treat wrinkles and reduce cellulite. It works by selective electro heating of the collagen fibres and fat cells under the skin.

It tightens loose or lax skin around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, jaw line, jowls and also the area under the chin, neck and body. It not only helps to alleviate large pores, but improves the over-all tone and texture of dull skin.

This treatment appeals to clients who are looking for subtle improvements, but are not yet ready for a surgical face-lift. Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?

The heat concentration is adapted for cellulite reduction and is particularly effective on fat under the chin and neck area, as well as other lax and fatty areas of the body. It is one of the few treatments that can help to tighten slack upper arms and the inner thighs and buttocks. In fact, there are very few places on which radio-frequency will not work.

How does radio-frequency work?

It works in a number of ways:

Tissue Retraction

Heat generated by the treatment causes contraction of the collagen fibres, immediately tightening the skin to remodel and rejuvenate it, reducing the effects of ageing.

New Collagen Formation

Local fibroblasts are stimulated by heating the dermis which acts as a new foundation for the skin. This produces further tightening, which only becomes evident in the following months.

Improved Circulation

Radio-frequency also improves the blood flow and helps with lymphatic drainage, providing a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance.

This unique combination of processes creates an immediate uplifting effect, but also long term skin tightening, restructuring and rejuvenating.

Is it safe?

Radio-frequency has been used in dermatology, cardiology, neurosurgery and ENT for over 70 years. It has been proven to be very safe.

Is it painful?

It’s an entirely pain-free procedure and no recovery time is necessary. In fact, the procedure actually feels very pleasant and soothing, akin to a hot stone massage.
