What does Radio Frequency do for the skin?

Radio Frequency is a high-tech cosmetic treatment, which is gaining popularity every day as an alternative to invasive surgical treatments like fillers and facelifts. But what exactly is it, and what does it do? 

How it works

During a Radio Frequency treatment, your skin is gently heated to 40° using a specialised warming wand. This is hot enough to stimulate your body’s healing response, but not hot enough to actually cause damage. In fact, doing this is a much kinder way to achieve the skin you want – Radio Frequency works with your body, unlike other treatments that cut away, or inject chemicals into it. 

New collagen

One of the most impactful aspects of a Radio Frequency treatment is the creation of new collagen. Our bodies produce a lot of collagen when we’re growing – but this rapidly declines as we age, and eventually, it stops, unless the wound-healing response is stimulated. Radio Frequency triggers this response, flooding the target area with new collagen. This plumps and smooths the skin, drastically reducing sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. 

Tighten elastin

Elastin is another structural fibre within the skin, but elastin is a little different because the body doesn’t tend to produce more elastin – think of it as the ‘bones’ of the skin. Elastin fibres can become slack and fall out of line as we age. Radio Frequency tightens the fibres, helping the skin to spring back and restoring tautness, contour and tone.

Reduce cellulite and fat

Radio Frequency is one of the very few treatments out there that can significantly help to reduce cellulite. By stimulating the lymphatic and circulatory systems, it helps fatty deposits to drain away, leaving behind smoother skin and a slimmer appearance. This makes Radio Frequency the perfect companion treatment for lifestyle changes such as a new exercise regime and a healthy diet!
