Radio frequency is an advanced skin treatment offering a non-invasive alternative to surgical procedures. We have seen lots of fabulous results with the SkinBase Collagen Lift radio frequency treatment. But what exactly is it, and how does it benefit the skin?

What is Radio Frequency?
During a Collagen Lift treatment, a ceramic wand is used in circles across the skin to gently heat the area to 40 degrees. This temperature stimulates your body’s natural healing response without actually causing any damage. Radio Frequency works with your body, unlike other treatments that cut away, or inject chemicals into it. So – how does it benefit the skin?
How Does Radio Frequency Benefit the Skin?
The SkinBase Collagen Lift treatment produces such fantastic results for clients as it increases collagen production within the skin. Collagen degeneration is a key reason that signs of ageing appear on the skin. As we age, collagen levels decline. Radio frequency works at the deepest layers to combat this, flooding the target area with new collagen. This plumps and smooths the target area, improving the appearance of sagging, fine lines and wrinkles.
Elastin is another structural fibre within the skin that radio frequency has a positive impact on. Elastin is different to collagen as the problem is not a lack of elastin. The body doesn’t tend to produce more elastin, but elastin changes as we age. Elastin fibres can become slack and fall out of line over time. Radio Frequency tightens the fibres, helping the skin to spring back and restoring tautness, contour and tone.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps the skin to stretch, retain moisture and stay cushioned. Over time, as with collagen, levels of hyaluronic acid produced by the body decreases. As a result, the skin loses volume and becomes dryer, making fine lines and wrinkles more likely to appear. As the radio frequency energy heats the skin, hyaluronic acid production is boosted, help to minimise signs of ageing.
Reduce cellulite and fat
Radio Frequency can significantly help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The heat and motions from the ceramic wand helps to stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory systems. As a result, fatty deposits drain away, leaving behind smoother skin and a slimmer appearance. This makes Radio Frequency the perfect companion treatment for lifestyle changes such as a regular exercise regime and a healthy diet!
