The prospect of treating sagging skin and cellulite without the scalpel, appeals to the majority of patients who are looking for subtle improvements but are not ready for a traditional facelift or surgery. Radiofrequency (RF) is the latest addition to the treatment options available for the ageing face and body, and is known as the non-surgical facelift. A safe, non-invasive, no downtime procedures which is ideal for tightening loose or lax skin which also aids cellulite reduction resulting in a better appearance of the ‘orange peel’ effect.

How does it work?

The skin is made up of two layers, the visible outer layer called the epidermis and the deeper layer called the dermis. The main structural support of the dermis is provided by the protein called collagen. Radio Frequency tightens the skin by two separate processes. Firstly it has an immediate effect by tightening the supportive framework of the skin (by contraction of collagen fibres and tissue retraction) aiding remodelling and rejuvenation. Secondly, heating the dermis stimulates the body to produce collagen, boosting a healing response. This acts as a new deep foundation for the skin producing further tightening that becomes evident over several months. The combination of these two processes provide immediate skin tightening and further long-term tightening effects. RF also facilitates cellulite and fat reduction by improving blood flow to the treated area and promoting the breakdown of fat cells, aiding the re-absorption and drainage of fatty deposits and retained fluids. Radio Frequency can treat any area of the body where loose of lax skin is apparent.

Is treatment painful?

Tolerance to the treatment is very good. Patients will generally experience a warm sensation on the surface of the skin as the heat builds up; however continuous contact cooling provides additional patient comfort.

How long will the results last?

Following a course of treatment, results are expected to last 1-2 years.
