What is Radiofrequency?

Radiofrequency is a series of electromagnetic waves that directly heat up the connective tissue without damaging the upper layers of the skin. The heat causes the collagen to contract and produce new collagen. This effect will be visible after only one treatment and can continue for several months after the treatment sessions have ended and keep showing improvements.

Over the last ten years or so, the biochemical reasons for ageing skin have been scientifically researched and based on the results, completely new methods of treatment have been developed. Up to now, the lifting of saggy and wrinkly skin has been a job for the plastic surgeon. This changed when doctors and cosmetologists discovered that, with the aid of electric impulses, the skin could be tightened. This is called Diathermy which is the heat penetration of tissue through high frequency electromagnetic vibrations. This is also called Radiofrequency.


What can Radiofrequency treat?

The therapeutic effect of Radiofrequency can effect:

• Wrinkle reduction
• Scar reduction
• Fat and cellulite reduction in small targeted areas
• Tightening up of tissue
• Improved facial contours
• Stimulation of regeneration of collagen fibres
• Improved lymphatic drainage leading to brighter, clearer skin

We are unable to treat clients who:

• Have pacemakers
• Have metal parts in their body
• Are pregnant
• Have cancer
• Have diabetes
• Are haemophiliacs

Why do we get wrinkles and fine lines?

With age, the skin and connective tissue lose their ability to regenerate. The metabolic rate slows own, and blood and lymph circulation decrease. The supply of nourishment and oxygen, as well as the removal of waste products, will be reduced. It therefore comes as no surprise that skin is less taut and wrinkles appear.

What is the actual treatment?

After cleansing the face, gel will be applied and the whole face will be treated unless the client has specific areas to target. After the treatment, which will last 30 minutes, the face will be cleansed and moisturised and UV-protection applied.

We will also offer enhanced treatments such as peels and microdermabrasion before the treatment and special creams that contain hyaluronic acid after the treatment. There will be a small supplementary charge for any of these additional treatments.

How long will the treatment last?

From start to finish, the treatment will take about 45 minutes. Your very first treatment will last about an hour as you will receive a consultation prior to the treatment to discuss your expectations.

Will I see a difference after one treatment?

We will take photographs before your treatment and you should see a visible difference after just one treatment. The result is a natural looking face with noticeably tauter, firmer, lifted skin and results increase with every further treatment. The rejuvenation effect will last for years to come and can be refreshed at any time.

Will I need more than one treatment?

For the very best results, a programme of 10 treatments over six weeks is recommended in the form of two treatments per week over four weeks followed by two treatments one week apart. The regeneration process of your skin will carry on over a few months. The results need to be seen to
be believed!
