Body Radio Frequency – Skin Tightening

Body Radio Frequency penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblastin order to accelerate production of new collagen fibres and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.

Body Radio Frequency technology is a fantastic treatment for both skin tightening and cellulite reduction. The Body Radio Frequency energy selectively increases the temperature of the fat cells, by doing so simultaneously in deep and superficial layers of fat. This increases the metabolism and release of liquid fat from fat cells. Normal cells can support 60 degrees but fat cells start to be melted at 41 degrees. After the treatment and release of liquid fat, the fat cells shrink in size, and skin is restored closer to its original form, reducing or eliminating the appearance of cellulite.

Radio Frequency generates energy that penetrates the hypodermis skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue.  The heating process results in the contraction of collagen fibers, encouraging the regeneration of collagen and elastin causing the skin to tighten. This may result in a firmer appearance to the skin.*
Before any treatment you will have a consultation with your therapist to discuss any aesthetic goals or ask any questions you may have. After a treatment plan is agreed, we will begin to target the selected areas.
Your therapist will place the device on the nominated area, slowly increasing the temperature of the tissue without damaging the skin’s surface. The area is given a deep tissue heat massage, causing new collagen and elastin formation. Depending on the individual, the course of treatments may result in a more toned and tighter appearance to the skin.*
 After the treatment you’re able to resume your normal daily activities with no required downtime.*
How long will it take?
The face will take 60 minutes for treatments and the body up to 30 minutes per session.  The course is 6-8 sessions at weekly intervals over which the improvements may become visible.*

What is the aftercare?
Keep treated skin away from any excess heat and no hair removal for 48 hours.  Avoid using ‘active’ products for 2-3 days before and after the treatment.  Drink 1.5 -2 litres of water per day. For your own comfort don’t consume a large meal immediately before your procedure, or directly afterwards. We recommend avoiding alcohol and caffeine on the day of your treatment.
