Radio Frequency Skin Tightening with Lifting

Radio frequency is one of the safest, least invasive and yet most effective anti-ageing treatment available to people of all skin colours. In our early 20’s we have plenty of collagen in our skin.

However, with age our collagen production decreases, so that by the time we reach our mid 40’s it is barely in production and due to the lack of collagen we notice our skin loses elasticity, sags and forms lines and wrinkles.

Using the very latest SkinFirst Radio Frequency equipment we can stimulate your own natural collagen and tighten your elastin fibres to bring about long-lasting rejuvenation.

How Does It Work?

The radio frequency energy is directed onto the skin through optical gel which is applied before treatment. This works by heating the dermal (ie lower) layers of your skin without having to pass directly through the epidermis (the surface skin) so that skin is maximally protected. The heat energy being delivered to the lower layers is absorbed by the many water molecules present in this area. The water molecules then begin to vibrate from the energy delivered causing additional frictional heat.

The neurotransmitters to the brain interpret this delivery of heat to the lower layers of the skin as being a perceived threat/potential injury and the body responds to this by stimulating collagen with the further benefit of tightening elastin fibres. This is the body’s natural reparative response and how it would deal with wound healing.
