Radio Frequency Facials are really gaining in popularity as an effective non-surgical procedure with some famous personalities crediting the procedure with taking years off their appearance.
In an article titled “Wondered how Kylie looks so good at 48? Singer uses radio wave facelifts that cost £250 a blast” the 25 Oct 2016 Daily Mail describes how Kylie Minogue is now a “fan of non-invasive treatments” and “believes they (the RF facials) have taken years off her.” She had a course of 6 initial treatments and is now on a “maintenance” program of a single session every few months.
With RF facial treatments, radio waves penetrate the outer skin layers and deliver heat energy to the muscles and tissues beneath. This heat stimulates collagen and elastin production, and that, in turn, triggers tissue contraction. The overall result is tighter, brighter skin and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles. The Daily Mail article also says that the treatments are “so relaxing regulars often fall asleep during an hour-long treatment”; it mentions that celebrities including Amanda Holden, Nicole Scherzinger and Spice Girl Mel B are also fans of the treatment.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has also used RF facial treatments and is quoted as saying “I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face”(Charlotts Book in July 2016).
RF treatments can be used to treat the following areas:
- Forehead (lifts brows and tightens forehead skin)
- Under Eyes (firms skin and tightens and lifts the upper cheek)
- Cheeks (lifts slightly and diminishes enlarged pores)
- Mid-Face and Jaw Line (diminishes jowls and sagging along the jaw line)
- Neck (treats "chicken neck" by tightening skin and diminishing wrinkles)
In terms of how long to see any improvements? We do have clients who claim they can see & feel improvements immediately after the treatment. In general though we tell clients to expect to see an improvement over 4-6 weeks; in that time you will notice a change in your skin’s tone, as collagen tightens, scars remodel and skin drainage improves. This change will continue for several months after RF Treatments.
