Skin firming and tightening with Radio-frequency. The skin ages because of a natural biological process but also because of pollution, stress, sunlight, lifestyle, and medication. Every year we lose 1% of our natural collagen. This results in sagging skin with reduced elasticity changed texture, lines, and wrinkles – all visible signs of ageing. As we get older, cell divisions slow down which result, the natural moisture regulation stagnates and elasticity is reduced. Fibroblasts are cells which produce elastin and collagen. In a young skin these are renewed every 21-28 days, but as we get older, this process only happens once every 40-45 days. The skin will slacken and wrinkles can start to appear. Collagen and elastin are supporting base proteins, which make the skin strong and flexible. As the years go by, a reduction in collagen results in the slackening of the skin. The skin loses its suppleness. From age 25 the skin gradually reduces its production of collagen, which results in slackening of the skin and wrinkles. During menopause, this process will speed up rapidly.
During the treatment, a cooling gel will be applied to the target area. This gel conducts the energy into the skin. After this, the sapphire will be projected onto the skin and the pulses start penetrating into the skin. These pulses can be perceived as a tingling sensation. It’s possible that treatment will leave some redness and a warm sensation. Normally these phenomena will disappear within an hour of the treatment.
There’s no age limit and the treatment is suitable for all skin-types. If you want to counteract the signs of ageing and would like to have smoother, firmer and fresher looking and feeling skin then this treatment is for you.
A typical course of treatments consists of about 6 sessions. Every session last for about 30 or 40 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area). To get a more pronounced and long-term effect you can also have a maintenance treatment every 4 to 8 week.
