3D Skin Tightening – Radio Frequency
This treatment is anti-ageing and is great for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Radio Frequency is done using a heated handpiece which 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 fibroblast order to accelerate production of new collagen and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.
Areas which can be treated on the face are the forehead, crow’s feet, upper lip, jowls and neck area. Body areas which can be treated are arms, abdomen and loose skin on buttocks and knees. A course of 8 treatments is recommended to give optimum results and results can be seen after each treatment.
During treatment a small handpiece is placed gently on the skin and moved in circular motions. The handpiece will become warmer and the heat will build up to a controlled 40 degrees. Once temperature has been achieved the heat will be maintained for 2 minutes an area. The next area will then be done.
3D Body Radio Frequency (Cellulite Reduction)
This treatment tightens skin, smooths out fine lines and wrinkles and reduces the appearance of cellulite. A similar technique to the radio frequency face treatment is done. The 3D Body Radio Frequency 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 the fat cells. Normal cells can support 60 degrees, but fat cells start to be melted at 40 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. A gentle vacuum can be applied after the heat to disperse liquid through the lymphatic system.
After the radio frequency a treatment named shockwave will be done to help further break down the fat cells and eliminate through the lymphatic system.
Results are seen soon after the first treatment; however, a course of treatments are recommended as results are further improved after each treatment.
