How does the treatment work? Precisely controlled short pulses of light are released that target discolouration (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. In addition, this light results in the stimulation of the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin.
As we age, the outer layer of our skin naturally thins, and along with this goes the layer of fat and collagen that used to keep our skin looking youthful and plump. In contrast to the taut, supple appearance your skin has when you’re younger, ageing skin loses its elasticity and its ability to “bounce back”.
The symptoms of ageing become more obvious when your skin starts to sag in areas such as your cheeks/jaw line and neck. Muscle/weight loss and pregnancy also contribute to the loose skin on our bodies. Due to the loss of volume that has essentially stretched out our skin, these areas that once looked toned and defined begin to look thin & sagging. Unfortunately for us, this cycle is irreversible and is naturally occurring in everyone’s life.
Firming & toning treatments such as RF Firming and Contouring penetrate the deeper layer of skin to stimulate new collagen growth for the long-term improvement of facial contours and provide firming effects for the face & neck.
Our specialised skin tightening treatment is designed to stimulate dermal collagen production and help with the regeneration of damaged skin cells.
The heat injected causes the collagen to contract which induces growth factors and stimulates new collagen synthesis, replacing the old collagen with new fibres that are more compact and organised, to give a less wrinkled appearance. This treatment is quick, comfortable and non-invasive with minimal downtime.
