The non-invasive alternative to surgery or Botox
This must be the easiest way to take years off the appearance of your face. The new Focus RF treatment uses bi-polar radio frequency to tighten the skin in the face and neck areas.
A probe is moved slowly and repeatedly over your skin, generating heat in the lower dermal layer. The heat causes an immediate
contraction in the collagen fibres. This gives a rapid tightening result. More importantly, the treatment results in a long
er-term boost in de-novo collagen synthesis. It is this longer-term result which gives you the firmer, more el
astic, younger-looking skin.
Generally a course of 6 to 8 treatments at weekly intervals is recommended. The stimulation in collagen production continues for many months. You will continue to see an improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin.
Unlike Botox injections, the effect does not wear off rapidly. Your skin will age naturally, but from a more youthful starting point.
The skin will be cleansed prior to the procedure. Glycerol is used to conduct the energy from the probe to the skin. The skin will become flushed in appearance as the radio frequency waves heat the dermal layer and increase blood circulation. Individual areas are treated repeatedly until the appropriate level is achieved. The treatment is not painful, however you will feel the heat.
Following treatment the skin is cleansed again and effective clinical strength serums applied. The skin may look flushed for several minutes.
Prices start at $100 for indvidual areas such as around the eyes or the mouth.
