WHY CHOOSE Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Facial
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Facial, also known as RF facial, is a non-surgical procedure that effectively lifts and tightens loose, wrinkled, and sagging skin. In clinical studies, radiofrequency facial rejuvenation produced high satisfaction among participants and noticeable facial skin improvement.
How does radiofrequency tighten skin?
Chronic exposure to environmental elements (e.g. UV rays, air pollution) accelerates the natural aging process and it shows on your skin. Your collagen and elastin fibres are damaged and the production of hyaluronic acid (HA) slows down, causing your skin to sag and lose its elasticity. Radiofrequency delivers uniform heat to the dermis (this is where the important fibres are located) to produce more collagen and alter the damaged collagen and elastin fibres. That is why the skin feels taut and firm after the treatment.
How long does the procedure last?
Typically, this procedure is short, lasting up to 30 mins. Although results can be seen immediately after the treatment, if you follow our recommended 6 sessions, once weekly, you can expect results to last up to 3-6months (depending on individual).
Is radiofrequency skin tightening safe for the face?
This lunchtime facial is safe for the face and body – even for the sensitive areas around the eyes. It is less invasive than lasers and chemical peels because it involves targeted heat application that protects the integrity of the tissue around the treated area.
Is radiofrequency skin tightening facial painful?
RF facial does not cause actual damage to the skin so it won’t cause any pain. You may feel a warm or pulsating sensation as the handpiece comes in contact with your skin but it would still feel comfortable.
Our highly trained consultant will discuss the procedure with you and ask about your medical history. This stage is essential in determining if radio frequency facial is right for you. If you have questions or concerns regarding the treatment, the whole team will be happy to assist you.
Radiofrequency skin tightening facial is a safe, effective, and painless way of improving skin elasticity. If you are not a fan of injectables, you should consider this specialised facial. Using the latest technology, an RF device will heat your skin with pure radiofrequency. This minimises the appearance of enlarged pores, which provides immediate smoothening of the skin. Because the heat is directed into the middle layer, it does not burn or damage the skin. It only takes about 30 minutes of your time, and if you book an appointment at lunch, you don’t need to clear your night time schedule.
Side effects and contraindications
If you have rosacea or prone to broken capillaries, this treatment is not for you. The treated area may feel sore and there might be some swelling or redness, but these will subside within a few hours to a day.
RF promotes your skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin, and this will continue for a few months post-treatment. You will see even better results over time that could last for up to 6 months. By completing the suggested course of treatment at around 6 sessions per week, the results could last for years.
SOME Safety and Efficacy
The use of radiofrequency for aesthetic and medical therapies have been approved by the FDA and received CE mark clearance in Europe. While it’s a popular treatment for skin laxity problems of ageing skin, it has also been found to be beneficial for a variety of cosmetic indications such as acne scars, enlarged pores, and wrinkles.
