SKIN TONING WITH RADIOFREQUENCY
Radiofrequency is a versatile treatment as it can also help reduce flabby skin, tighten bingo wings, contour and tighten a post pregnancy tummy, reduce fine lines and wrinkles (on the face and body), reduce saddle bags and even lift and tighten your bum.
What’s more radio frequency body contouring comes with the guarantee that you won’t need any recovery time and is FDA and CE approved after all.
How does it work?
Essentially radio frequency treatments deliver an electrical current via electrodes to the skin, in order to heat the deeper and more superficial layers.
When our skin receives a high frequency electrical current the cells in our bodies interpret this as an energy source, and the layers in our skin act like a resistor to the electrical current and depending on their level of resistance, will heat up to varying degrees. It is the process of heating that helps to tighten and rejuvenate skin, smoothing its appearance and reducing localised pockets of fat.
So how will it contour and tighten my skin?
As our skin matures, the collagen and elastin proteins which help support a tight skin structure, start to break down. And as skin loses elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles and a dull or saggy appearance are never far away.
The radio frequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and fat cells drain then shrink, while those all important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue) are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibres. The effect of this is tighter, smoother, younger looking skin with a visible ‘lift’ . Fat cells are reduced and stubborn cellulite looks a lot less noticeable.
