Radio frequency Therapy is a Skin Tightening treatment. Radio frequency energy forces collagen fibers to contract in the subcutaneous and dermis layers causing skin shrinkage on the deepest level – the dermis. By stimulating new collagen protein and ATP below the muscle layer it causes instant skin tightening and the original collagen protein to strengthen the skin’s elasticity and enhance collagen secretion over time, therefore helps in breaking down rigid collagen fibers. Because it affects the deeper dermal layers, the result is a lifted contour, a decrease in deep wrinkles, thicker and firmer skin.
On its own, Radio Frequency Therapy is suitable for tightening the skin in the areas of the face including the jowls, cheeks and forehead and decolletage. Diminishing visible signs of aging on the face including uneven skin tone, texture, wrinkles, folds under the eyes and difficult to treat areas like the nasal-labial folds, fine lines around the mouth, smoker lines on upper lip, crows feet, laugh lines, and stretch marks on various areas of the body. Each treatment takes approximately 20 minutes. Clients are comfortably able to get back to work or go about their day immediately after the treatment. For spot treatment and particular target areas like just the eyes or mouth area, treatment time is as little as ten minutes.
Cellulite is formed in the subcutaneous layer of the skin and surrounded by bands of connective tissue. As fat cell volume increases, and these bands of connective tissue lose their elasticity making it a difficult task for them to contain the enlarged cells. Characterized by a dimpled ’cottage cheese’ or ‘orange peel’ look, cellulite appears most commonly in the thighs and buttocks, widespread in both thin and overweight women. While it is not a health threat, cellulite is aesthetically unappealing, and is a source of embarrassment to some women.
Radio Frequency Therapy when used in conjunction with Ultrasonic Cavitation therapy is the best way to flatten, tighten and tone fat cellulite, loose skin, anywhere on the face, body and extremities. It is great for non-surgical belly fat and abdominal skin tightening, non-surgical eye-lifts with skin tightening, non-surgical cellulite and fat revision, neck skin tightening.

What should I expect?
You may notice slight redness around the treatment area, which usually disappears in a couple of hours. Skin quality improvement should be long lasting. However, maintaining the results of skin tightening treatments is subject to a person’s calorie intake, exercise and lifestyle. A good exercise program and healthy lifestyle will help to maintain the desired treatment effects.
