Skin Tightening RF

As our skin ages from the ravages of sun,  hormonal changes, and altered fat distribution, these contribute to the appearance of loose skin, lines and wrinkles.

The use of radiofrequency for skin collagen formation and wrinkle reduction has become increasingly popular.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The "AUDREE" Radio Frequency (RF) system utilises a suction assisted handpiece to gently aspirate the skin in a rolling wave-like action, allowing the radiofrequency energy to be delivered safely and through the epidermis into the deep dermis. The heat generated in the deeper tissue causes contraction of collagen fibres, and this causes skin tightening.

DOES IT HURT?

The treatment is comfortable, with a sensation of heat being generated, which is not unpleasant. The patient is in constant communication with the therapist, ensuring comfort and safety.
