In the beauty world, Radio Frequency treatments are trending – and it’s for good reason.
This brilliant skin-tightening treatment helps to rid puffy eyes, turn back time on wrinkles and reduce the appearance of a double chin. It can even help to smooth the texture of your skin, lift your appearance, brighten it, and reduce pores.
Plus, from just one session, Radio Frequency offers immediate rejuvenation with visible clinical results.
“When it comes to this nonsurgical treatment, the positives are endless,” qualified therapist, Rosa Scialo, says. “And with January in full swing, there’s never been a better time to wipe your slate clean and reset your skin after a busy month of indulging. A hit of Radio Frequency is just the thing our tired, ageing and lacklustre skin is calling out for.”
So why not start the year looking and feeling great? Let’s go back to basics. Here’s everything you need to know about Radio Frequency…
What exactly is Radio Frequency?
In laymen’s terms, Radio Frequency is a skin tightening age-defying treatment that uses energy waves to firm, tighten and plump the skin.
The treatment uses heat similar to what you might expect from a relaxing hot stone massage. The soothing heat kickstarts the body’s natural healing response which stimulates the fibroblast cells in the area being treated. These cells stimulate collagen and strengthen the elastin which helps to fight against ageing.
It’s been clinically proven
But don’t just take our word for it.
According to a clinical medical study, published in The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology: “Raising the temperature to 46°C and maintaining this temperature for at least three minutes triggers the release of heat-shock proteins. This increase will start a healing cascade and subsequently production of new collagen and elastic fibers.”
And, as we know, Collagen helps to fight against ageing.
Rosa says: “When we are young, our fibroblast cells are very active. But as we age, they start to slow down. I like to think of this Radio Frequency treatment as inviting them back to the party and saying ‘hey, get back to working’.”
The results speak for themselves
Along with having more oxygenated skin – which is always a good thing – the area targeted will be lifted, tightened and brightened. “All of which you can enjoy without injections,” Rosa says.
Plus, you’ll see instant results after the treatment. This makes Radio Frequency ideal for a one-off event, wedding, or if your skin needs some TLC.
What makes our Radio Frequency treatment stand out?
Here at BodySense Beauty Treatments Rosa uses a machine that offers three treatments in one. The three key technologies used includes:
Radio Frequency – as we mentioned above
Mechanical Lymphatic Drainage – this helps to eliminate fluid retention, puffiness and drains away toxins. It’s particularly brilliant if you suffer with puffiness around your eyes and jowl area.
LED light therapy – this super-charges cell renewal and energises the skin, because the cells absorb the light and use this as a source of energy. The red LED light stimulates cells and repairs damaged tissue. While the blue LED light reduces inflammation. The result? Overall, LED light therapy converts nutrients into energy and can produce two to four times more collagen and elastin. It’s a win-win.
How long will the effects last and who can benefit?
The effect of one treatment will last 12 weeks. “However, this depends on how tight we need to tighten the skin,” Rosa explains. For optimal results, a course of six treatments is recommended which could last between 6-12 months.
Stand-alone treatments on your neck and face will take around 45 minutes. While if you incorporate a facial with a massage and mask, we schedule in one hour.
Rosa treats anyone from 20-years-old and upwards who is experiencing loss of firmness, or dullness in their skin.
