If you want to tackle sagging skin and developing wrinkles, but don’t want a surgical face-lift, there IS a way – it’s Radiofrequency skin tightening!
While surgery might offer the most dramatic results it can be very expensive, require a considerable period of recovery time and involve a degree of discomfort that many would consider unacceptable. We offer an alternative solution using radiofrequency skin tightening (or Thermaclinic as it’s sometimes known), an effective and comfortable way to achieve tighter skin and wrinkle reduction.
After a course of treatments you could enjoy tighter, younger looking skin with improved skin tone and elasticity.
How does radiofrequency work?
A form of energy called Radiofrequency is applied to the skin on the face and neck using a small hand-held device which creates heat within the deeper layers of the skin and triggers the production of collagen and tightens the existing collagen fibres. Collagen is a naturally occurring product within the skin layers that give it its elasticity and firmness and although people produce different amounts, its production generally decreases with age. By promoting the production of new collagen we can restore the skin to a more youthful state, and create facial skin tightening and wrinkle reduction that looks incredibly natural.
Which areas can you treat?
Using Thermaclinic we can treat the face, throat and décolletage.
How long does it take?
The time taken for each treatment can vary, but on average takes between 30 and 45 minutes.
How long does it last?
There is an immediate impression of lift and plumping of the skin. This effect gradually and progressively increases and after 4 sessions is noticeably lasting. We recommend a single session top-up every six months to maintain the benefit. Results will remain over time, influenced of course by natural ageing and lifestyle impacts.
How many sessions will I need?
Typically 6 to 8 treatments are required to achieve the maximum benefit, on a weekly basis. A single session top-up is recommended every six months to maintain the effect.
Does it hurt?
The treatment is not considered painful. In fact, the sensation of warmth created by the RF as the hand-piece passes over the skin has been described as very pleasant and relaxing!
Are there any side-effects?
Straight after treatment you might experience some residual warmth, pinkness and/or mild swelling of the skin but this will disappear within a few hours. No special after-care is required – you can go straight back to work and nobody will be any the wiser! Before starting any treatment, we ensure that you’re comfortable and fully informed about the treatment process and that you have no pre-existing conditions that could adversely affect it.
