RF SKIN TIGHTENING FAQ
Radio Frequency, also referred to as RF, is a fantastic technology-based science for tightening loose or ageing skin as well as improving overall skin tone. RF is an ideal non-invasive treatment to combat sagging skin
How does RF work?
RF works by generating heat and applying it to the dermal and subdermal layers of the skin without causing injury to the epidermis (outer layers of skin). The heat causes tissue retraction, resulting in instantly tighter and firmer skin. It also works to stimulate collagen production which over time produces a more youthful looking appearance.
Which areas of the body can RF treat?
RF can effectively treat the entire body depending on your skin concern.
Tightens and lifts loose or sagging skin around the tummy, buttocks, thighs, arms and legs
Reduces and smooths the appearance of cellulite and uneven skin tone
Firms ageing skin, including décolleté, to produce a more youthful appearance
What does treatment feel like?
Most clients feel no pain or discomfort during RF treatment. Some find the warm sensation relaxing. If you have any concerns, please let us know prior to treatment so we can arrange the necessary means to ensure your RF sessions are as comfortable as possible.
Can I get on with my day after treatment?
You sure can! Some clients may experience minimal redness, but this typically subsides not long after treatment. As there is no downtime, you can get on with your day as usual.
How many treatments will I need?
This will all depend on your individual situation, and we will carefully assess this for you during your consultation. Some clients may only need 4 treatments, while others may require 6 or 8 to achieve brilliant results.
When will I start seeing results?
When it comes to the tightening and lifting effect of RF, it can produce instant results. You will notice immediate improvements to your skin tone that will just get better with each session. The collagen remodelling aspect of RF takes a little more time and you will reach full benefits of the collagen stimulation around 3 months after treatment.
Special care following your treatment...
You don’t need to worry about any post-treatment care regimen following your RF sessions, but it is a good idea to avoid excess sun exposure and always apply sunscreen if going out into the sun. Caring for your skin will ensure the beautiful results of your RF treatments stay with you for a long time to come.
