Radio frequency Micro Needling is effective skin remodelling treatment that uses energy waves and gold plated dermal needles to puncture and heat the skin causing an immediate contraction. This initiates a reparative response within the cells so they lay down more collagen, thickening the skin tissue, reducing pigmentation and bringing back a more youthful glow. This modality is also good for facial sculpting as it is effective at reducing volume in the nasolabial folds, reducing the appearance of marionette lines and remodelling the under chin and jaw areas. It is also extremely effective at reducing fine lines and scars.

WHAT IS IT What is Radio Frequency. Radio frequency therapy, or RF skin tightening, is a non-invasive, non-ablative advanced skin remodelling treatment that uses energy waves to induce thermal damage to the deep layers of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue in order to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The wand from a medical grade radio frequency device is passed over the skin, heating the underlying tissue to over 40 degrees, and causing an immediate retraction and tightening of the tissue. This thermal trauma initiates a reparative response within the skins cells that results in the proliferation of fibroblasts (cells) and the laying down of new collagen and elastin fibres, thickening the skin tissue. The procedure is suitable for all skin types as radio frequency therapy does not disturb the basal layer of the skin and has no effect on the melanocytes (cells) responsible for the production of skin pigmentation. This medical-grade cosmetic procedure is relatively painful free with excellent results achieved from just one session. However, for deeper long term results the accumulative effect of multiple treatments may be needed. The visible effects seen instantaneously are due to the retraction and tightening caused from the controlled thermal damage administered via the RF wand. Continued remodelling will take place for up to three months post treatment, as the body continues to remodel and repair the skin tissue, laying down more collagen fibres and thickening up the dermis. RF skin tightening is a widely used safe and simple skin remodelling treatment that has a proven track record.

WHAT TO EXPECT What to expect from Radio Frequency. This is a non-invasive procedure that produces none to minimal discomfort and no down-time. It can be carried out on all skin types There is no need to adjust any home skin-care routine before having this treatment carried out. Radio frequency therapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment carried out in a medi-spa setting on a salon treatment table Firstly, a deep cleanse will be carried out to ensure the skin is free of oil, debris and ready for the treatment An alcohol swab is passed over the cleansed area to kill bacteria and help minimise the risk of infection The RF therapy treatment will then begin. The technician uses a RF wand passing over the area to be treated in a grid fashion so as a thorough treatment is performed. Throughout the procedure, it is common for the patient not to feel anything throughout the treatment as radio frequency works deep below the skins surface. Due to the nature of the skin, with skin cells constantly renewing, the signs of ageing and collagen lose will start to show again over a period of time. This is why it is recommended to stay on maintenance treatments every year or so depending on the condition of the skin. A nourishing vitamin B serum is applied at the end of the treatment to help soothe the skin. Vitamin B is a powerful nutrient that plays an important role in mitochondrial energy metabolism within the cell, helping to improve cellular function. It is also beneficial for barrier function as it boosts the production of the cell outer membrane. A broad spectrum SPF is then applied to help protect the damaged skin from UV radiation and the possibility of a pigmentary response. SPF should be worn at all times, especially for the first week post treatment as the barrier function is impaired. For best results the patient should be treated every 1-2 weeks for 1-6 treatments, depending on the condition of the skin
BENEFITS Benefits of Radio Frequency. The heating effect from RF therapy causes a retraction in the skin tissue, resulting in an immediately noticeable tightening and firming of the skin. Increases the proliferation of fibroblasts that lay down collagen and elastin fibres; normalising dysfunction, thickening the skin, increasing elasticity and helping to diminish fine lines and wrinkles by creating new skin cells. Exposure to UV radiation causes the deterioration of collagen fibres, resulting in skin tissue to break down and become disorganised. RF can help normalise this dysfunction, reversing some of the signs of sun damage. RF can help address body skin laxity by restoring collagen density and function, tightening loose body skin and reverse dermal atrophy. RF therapy is safe and effective treatment option to use on the face. It is the dominant technology in the non-invasive management of skin ageing and laxity. RF generates thermal energy that is not absorbed by the epidermal melanin, meaning it is safe and appropriate to use on all skin types.
