RADIO FREQUENCY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS RADIO FREQUENCY?
Radio Frequency, also referred to as RF, is a fantastic treatment for tightening loose or sagging skin on any area of the body to produce firmer, more youthful looking skin.
RF works by generating heat and applying it to the epidermal and dermal layers of the 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 BE TREATED BY RF?
RF can effectively treat the entire body depending on your skin concern
Tightens and lifts loose or sagging skin around the jowls, neck, chin, tummy, buttocks, thighs, arms and legs
Tightens, smoothes and improves facial skin tone to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Reduces and smoothes the appearance of cellulite and uneven skin tone
Firms ageing skin, including décolleté, to produce a more youthful appearance
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
RF is a painless treatment and most clients will experience zero discomfort. Some find the warm sensation relaxing.
CAN I GET ON WITH MY DAY AFTER TREATMENT?
You sure can! Some clients may experience redness immediately post treatment, 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 other 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.
IS THERE ANY SPECIAL CARE AFTER MY TREATMENT?
It is a good idea to avoid excess sun exposure and always apply sunscreen if going out into the sun post treatment. Caring for your skin will ensure the beautiful results of your RF treatments stay with you for a long time to come.
