What Is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?

Radio Frequency is a proven skin tightening technique that is used to target sagging skin all around the face, jawline, jowls, neck and decolletage.  It works best on patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid 30's to 50's, of all skin tones and colours.   It can be used on the forehead, under-eye area, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line and neck to tone, firm and tighten loose skin as well as diminish enlarged pores and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  

 

Radio Frequency is also used to tighten skin around the body, achieve fat reduction and body contouring and is particularly effective on underarms (bingo wings), buttocks, chest, stomach, back, hips, knees, and thighs.  Radio Frequency can also be used to specifically target areas of Cellulite and Stretch Marks with considerable success. 

 

It works by delivering heat to the deepest layers of skin which triggers collagen production thus resulting in skin tightening as well as fading scars and tackling Cellulite and Stretch Marks. 

Female Patient, Radio Frequency

"Thank you ​so so much Ita. I can't tell you the number of compliments I have gotten over the last two weeks on my skin. It's been 8 weeks since I had the PRP done and I've never felt as confident.  As you know it was my treat to myself on hitting the big 40! The best money I have ever spent. Also, I loved the Radio Frequency done by Alison".

  • How Does PRP Work?
    Once the consultation and patient case study phase is concluded, a small amount of blood is taken and passed through a centrifuge system to separate the platelets and fibrin from the red blood cells – this concentrate, known as the matrix, is then injected into the areas to be treated. Note the plasma remains alive in the treated area for approximately 7 days but the activity of the stem cells in the plasma continues working for about 3 months.
  • Is PRP Therapy Safe?
    Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is the safest non-invasive procedure available in the market today because you are using cells from your own body therefore there can be no allergic reaction: • It’s the only treatment of this type that can be injected into the tear trough of the eye without fear of any adverse effects • No surgery/no anaesthetic • Completely safe and natural – no synthetic substances/no danger of allergic reactions or infections • Walk-in Walk-out procedure – minimal disruption to your life Above all, the treatment is virtually painless and patients can look forward to a fast recovery.
  • Where Can PRP Be Used?
    Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be used on the face, neck, hands and all over the body with excellent results: skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated; fine lines and wrinkles are reduced; skin contours are redefined to create a youthful, radiant bloom; skin is stimulated by the growth factors in the plasma to repair and rejuvenate itself. It is hugely successful in the treatment of areas such as: crow’s feet “crepey” eyelids acne scarring/scars in general wrinkles/fine lines around nose, lips, mouth sagging skin in the neck area stretch marks burned skin
  • What Does PRP Feel Like?
    Prior to treatment, the patient’s skin is numbed with a topical anaesthetic and plasma is then injected into the Upper Dermis – the patient may experience a sensation of tiny pin pricks but feedback from clients indicates that this sensation is not at all uncomfortable.
  • What After-Care Is Needed?
    Patient will experience slight swelling but this will usually disappear in 24 hours. In cases where patients are prone to bruising easily, slight bruising may be evident, but as with any other filler, this is easily covered with make-up.
  • How Long Will The Effects Of PRP Last?
    In cases where skin is not deeply wrinkled/badly scarred or burned, follow-up treatments are recommended on an annual basis. In the case of damaged or quite wrinkled skin, a follow-up treatment is advised for 3 months later and thereafter on an annual basis.
  • Who Is Not Suitable For PRP?
    Because you are using cells from your own body, there can be no allergic reaction, therefore PRP is suitable for most people however if you have any concerns or specific medical conditions, we will advise you during the pre-treatment consultation whether the procedure is safe for you or not. Following consultation, the patient is advised on dietary changes required to aid the process e.g. increase intake of Vitamin C and water, and avoidance of stimulants such as coffee, alcohol and cigarettes. Patients will experience much more effective and satisfactory results if they follow these guidelines.
  • Are There Any Side Effects?
    No unnatural substances are used, therefore there is no danger of adverse/allergic reactions because you are using your own cells.
