Radio frequency skin tightening is a non-surgical, non-invasive technique offered by the Unique Beauty and Laser Clinic, as a service for clients. The technique relies on applying radio frequency (RF) energy to the skin of the face, using carefully controlled electrical currents. These enable us to reshape and contract the skin’s collagen and then tighten the surface of the skin.
RF uses controlled bursts of energy, a little like lasers, to penetrate the layers of the skin, leading to rejuvenation and tightening of the targeted areas. It requires no cutting of the skin, as happens with a traditional face lift, which means that there are far fewer side effects. RF skin tightening is especially suitable for those with sensitive skin, because it is much gentler.
We believe that RF treatment is the most appropriate for skin tightening because of their ability to stimulate the elastic protein fibres in the skin. RF waves can penetrate the skin to tighten it, by promoting the production of collagen; the new collagen fibres produce tighter skin which looks much younger.
For each treatment the skin must be clean and free of cosmetics and other products; your therapist will numb the skin with a soothing cream before again cleansing the skin and beginning the RF treatment. You can expect to feel a little warmth during treatment and your skin may be a little reddened for a few hours.
At Unique, we believe that clients need to plan for a minimum of three treatments, to produce visible results. Also clients should plan for several additional treatments each year.
