Tripolar Radiofrequency (RF) is the gold standard technology in treating anti-aging and skin tightening, as well as skin rejuvenation.
High frequency waves permeates the epidermis and produces controllable heat and results in collagen and dermal remodelling. It tightens up the existing collagen and stimulate new collagen growth through delivery of non-toxic heat energy to the tissue below the skin.
As a result the skin looks tighter and the wrinkles are reduced gradually.
RF is used for:
- Face firming and lifting.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Tighten loose or sagging skin.
The RF treatments can also be used to treat the stomach region including the post-baby tummy.
Preparation for your Skin Tightening treatment
The face is numbed for 40 minutes before starting. The whole face would take approximately 20-30 minutes to do depending on the area and pain threshold. Immediately after the procedure, the face is warm, red and swollen. After 4 days the needle marks will disappear, and your face will start to feel tighter and more lifted.
Post Care Treatment
Mild redness and swelling may occur a few hours and up to 24 hours after treatment. Massage and excessive sun exposure should be avoided at this time. More aggressive treatments may result in skin flaking as the new skin layer regenerates. Moisturisers and broad spectrum sunscreens are highly recommended during this recovery phase.
The final result can be seen a few weeks after treatment and last for a few months because the stimulated tissue restoration continues over a longer period. It is best to repeat treatments 1 x month for 3 to 6 months until the desired result is achieved.
