Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
A non-invasive treatment that works to create firmer skin, radiofrequency skin tightening can be used to reshape and remodel specific areas of the face and neck.
Through radiofrequency technology, the texture and appearance of the skin is noticeably improved, reducing the look of lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
The process of ageing impacts on the youthful look of a plump and firm facial structure. Features that are well defined and supported by strong skin are attributed to higher levels of collagen and elastin within the layers of the dermis, which help supple skin to remain lifted and smooth.
The decline of these substances cause the appearance to show lines, wrinkles and sagging skin that can also become dry and dull.
Radiofrequency skin tightening involves the use of a handheld device which is moved over the surface of the chosen area. Radio wave technology is delivered deep into the subcutaneous layers of the skin, which works to gradually heat the underlying tissues.
This effect encourages the stimulation of the fibroblasts which will contract and tighten, resulting in a firmer look and feel to the skin. The outcome produces a more sculpted look to the face as the features can restore their definition and contouring.
Skin laxity can affect all areas of the face, including: the brow, cheeks, jawline and neck. By treating the tissues and inner structure of the face, tightening the fibres and connective tissues, an improved texture of the surface layer can be achieved.
Improvements can be seen after one treatment, yet undergoing a recommended series of around 5 procedures can produce the maximum effects, for a youthfully smooth and bright appearance.Book a Consultation
