WHAT IS A SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT?
The skin tightening treatment works with RF Radio Frequency to strengthen existing collagen fibers that have weakened over time due to aging and various forms of stress.
Bi-polar RF energy heats the dermis and stimulates collagen synthesis to strengthen existing collagen fibers for improvement in skin laxity, sagginess and texture.
An immediate contraction of tissue fibers results in a smoother and tighter appearance of the skin. Results will continue unfold over the course of 3 to 6 months as the collagen continues to rebuild.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
The skin tightening treatments are suitable for facial treatments including the jowls, cheeks, brows and the sensitive zones of the eyes and forehead, as well as the neck, décolleté and underarms.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Each treatment session lasts approximately 15 - 20 minutes per area.
IS IT SAFE? Yes, the treatment is safe, effective and has no adverse effects. The treatment involves a unique skin cooling mechanism along with an applied cooling gel for maximum comfort.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS MUST I HAVE?
A treatment course of 4 - 6 sessions is recommended for optimal results.* If you've looked closely in the mirror recently, you probably came across a new wrinkle or noticed 'excess baggage' around the eyes. Think you can't defy the laws of gravity? Think again!
Our RF Core breakthrough skin tightening treatments instantly contract tissue fibers for immediate smoothing and plumping results.
Collagen fibers are also strengthened for long-term tightening, rendering smoother, tighter skin.
* Number of treatment sessions required, and final results may vary per individual.
Age, fluctuations in weight during or following your treatments, smoking and extreme sun tanning may have an adverse effect on the results you will achieve.
