Here at Doctors Laser Clinic you know how we go a little bonkers over the brilliance of Botox and the wonders of this little injectable, but there is a new Hollywood treatment in town and its going mainstream. So what’s it all about?
Radiofrequency treatment (RF) is all about stimulating your own collagen production. Put simply, the 20-60-minute treatment uses a machine to heat the skin between 38-40 degrees. This feels a little like a hot stone massage. The RF energy gets heat the deepest layers of the skin. The result is instantly plumper, firmer and fresher looking skin. Some call it “the contour refiner”. Very on-trend.
The popularity of this treatment would seem to be born out of desire for an anti-aging treatment which doesn’t freeze or fill. It’s a more natural approach which works with your own collagen and elastin production. A further appeal is that you get an immediate tightening of the collagen fibres, so it’s great for an instant skin improvement, but it also gives a long-lasting improvement as collagen production is promoted in the four-six weeks following a treatment. In addition, the RF treatments work fantastically when combined with other clinical treatments such as micro-needling and Botox.
RF won’t ‘fill’ but rather ‘soften’ fine lines – especially the nose to mouth lines – as well as lifting the cheeks and tightening the jawline. The treatment is great for age prevention or anyone experiencing loss of firmness and dullness in their skin. As well as collagen production, the radio-waves also boost oxygen levels in the skin, so it’s great for general radiance. Other uses for RF include it being used with high power ultrasound to treat cellulite especially around the thighs and buttocks and all with the added plus that it is a pain free treatment too.
