Radiofrequency is a treatment with minimal risks which stimulates the natural renewal of collagen. Patients are advised to avoid doing anything which will irritate the skin prior to treatment, including sunbathing. An anaesthetic cream is commonly applied to the area of treatment to help numb the skin, which will normally be removed immediately before the procedure commences.
Depending on the device being used, our expert clinicians may apply a temporary ink transfer to the skin to assist in navigation while delivering the radiofrequency energy. This assures an even application and prevents any overlapping. A pad may also be attached to your stomach or back to ground the electrical current.
The radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin, effecting the dermis and subcutaneous layers and tightening of the underlying tissue structure. Skin will feel tighter immediately after the treatment, with no downtime required in the vast majority of cases, and more improvements are often noticeable in the months that follow. Results from one treatment on or around the face commonly last up to two years, while radiofrequency to reduce fat and cellulite is normally carried out over a regular course of between eight and 10 sessions.
