At Ayurve Spa we offer skin tightening through a procedure known as Radio Frequency. This is a non-surgical procedure that assists in the tightening of elastin fibres beneath the skin, providing clients with a tighter more toned appearance. This treatment can be applied to anywhere on the body that you may feel needs lifting or tightening.
We can also offer Skin Tightening ( RF ) as an addition to the Ultrasound Treatment to maximise the results in the treatment area.
Most people will experience cellulite at some stage of their life, but not everyone has an understanding of what it is?, most people are embarrassed about cellulite and relate it to being fat which can not be further from the truth. 90% of people, whatever shape or size are susceptible to having cellulite. Cellulite is dimpling that occurs underneath the top layers of skin and is caused by smaller pockets of trapped fat deposits that push against the connective tissues beneath the skin. This trapped fat does not allow the lymph system to work properly, thus a large part of cellulite is made up of toxins and fat that have not drained away.
Radiofrequency (RF) treatment refers to the controlled application of RF energy, a form of electromagnetic energy, to the surface of the skin. RF energy has been used safely for many years in surgery but only recently in dermatology and cosmetic procedures. The application of RF energy causes bulk heating of the lower layers of the skin without causing any damage to the upper layer, or external surface of the skin .
Clinical research has shown that bulk heating of the connective tissue in the lower layers of the skin causes the skin to tighten. Non-surgical skin tightening is achieved by the effect of heat on the collagen fibres which causes them to lose their long fibre structure and shrink into a more compact form. This causes an increased tension within the skin which achieves the effect of tightening.
We recommended that a course of 6 sessions, with intervals of 3 days between each procedure is the minimum number of treatment sessions that is required. Following the initial course of treatment, it is recommended that skin tightening maintenance treatments be given every 3 to 6 months (and sometimes every 12 months) depending on the longevity of the patient’s response. Depending on what treatment area you are wanting done, the time will vary. On Average allow 15 – 40 minutes for the procedure. You will be advised at time of consultation with time and cost of procedure.
Areas that are mainly treated are Tummy, Thighs, Upper Arms, Face ( crows feet, forehead, under chin) Buttocks.
Most clients will see results after 3 days of having the treatment, but we do highly recommend having at least 6 treatments to maximise results and get the longevity out of the procedure, Although skin tightening can be a Add-On to any facial or body treatment if desired.
No absolutely not, the RF will only cause a little heating under the skin, it will cause a slight pink tone from the heat but that will quickly subside after the treatment.
Radio Frequency is successful in cellulite and fat reduction as it improves blood flow to the treated area which there fore promotes the breakdown of fat cells, aiding in the re-absorption and drainage of fatty deposits and retained fluids.
