With more and more facialists combining cutting edge technology with a hands-on approach when treating the skin, the demand for treatments such as radiofrequency facials is ever increasing. Our clients credit them with keeping there skin "lifted", but radiofrequency facials can also soften fine lines while firming the facial contours – both immediately and over time.
Our skincare expert explains that if microdermabrasion is "the skin smoother" of the facial world, you can consider radiofrequency "the contour refiner".
During treatment, a machine is used to heat the skin to between 38-40 degrees with radio frequency, which feels like a hot stone face massage. You can feel heat in the skin but it's comfortable.
It takes approximately 30 minutes to treat a whole face and the only discomfort is some feeling of heat in the skin. There is no downtime – you could easily have a treatment at lunch time and go out the same evening looking amazing.
The benefits are immediate tightening of the collagen fibres, giving a long-lasting lift and increased volume. Continued promotion of collagen production happens over four-six weeks following a treatment.
The procedure is great for softening fine lines – especially the nose to mouth lines – as well as lifting the cheeks and tightening the jawline, working well for age prevention.
It boosts oxygen levels in the skin and is great for general radiance, but not for skin with broken capillaries or rosacea.
