|It is an extremely popular treatment for those wanting a more youthful appearance but don’t want surgery or fillers.
Sun and environmental damage can accelerate skin ageing and cause loose sagging skin leaving you looking older. The collagen under the skin breaks down slower as you age, and radio frequency treatment works by heating the skin in the dermis to stimulate collagen growth and thicken and tighten the skin.
Perfect for face, neck and decollété, but also effective for loose skin all over the body.
Radio Frequency Treatment is a non-invasive treatment which uses radio waves directed through a probe head which is rested onto the skin. The radio waves are an energy, directed at the skin to produce a heating effect. Radio Frequency Treatment has been used for many decades for a variety of medical applications.
How does Radio Frequency Treatment work?
The beam of Radio Frequency will target deeper layers of skin, heating them up. This creates stimulation of the skin and in particular, the collagen, a substance which gives elasticity to the skin. The radio frequencies cause water molecules in the deeper layers of skin to vibrate. This in turn creates friction which causes the heating effect. When heat is applied to collagen fibres, they shrink and tighten up, and over time following the treatment, new collagen also forms. Whilst the deeper skin layers are being heated.
