Radio Frequency Treatment

Radio Frequency is a revolutionary treatment that firms, tightens and lifts the skin, all without having to go under the knife.

Radio Frequency energy treatment is technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin; ideal for those people who either don’t want, or don’t believe they are old enough to have a surgical procedure.

Radio Frequency uses radio waves directed through a probe head which is rested onto the skin. The radio waves are directed at the skin to produce a heating effect within the layers of the skin. This heat helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in the tightening of the surface skin. The heat helps to tighten loose and sagging skin on the face and body with instant and further progressive results.

The Benefits

Radio Frequency treatments will help to lift, firm and tighten skin on the face or body. It can also help smooth out stretch marks.

Radio Frequency is quick, convenient and painless. Immediately reveals tighter, younger looking skin, all without the cost & side effects of injectables.

Fantastic results has created a growing celebrity following. The likes of Kylie Minogue, Amanda Holden and Mel B favour this treatment over injectables.

Radio Frequency stimulates the skin’s own ability to produce collagen and elastin.

OUR CARE

In order to achieve optimum results from your Radio Frequency treatment, we strongly recommend the following:

One Week Prior To Your Treatment Session:

  • Increasing water intake and aim to drink 2 – 3 litres per day.
  • Reduce the intake of toxins to the body (caffeine, tobacco, alcohol).
  • Medications are OK to continue, although this will be fully analysed and checked during your consultation prior to your treatment.
  • Avoid alcohol 48 hours prior to treatment.
  • Reduce intake of carbohydrates.
  • Increase the consumption of fruit and vegetables.

24 Hours Prior To Your Treatment Session

  • Drink 1 litre of water prior to your appointment.
  • Do not drink fizzy, carbonated drinks 12 hours prior to your treatment session.
  • Do not eat a large meal prior to your treatment session, as this can make you feel uncomfortable during the treatment.

In order to achieve optimum results from your Radio Frequency treatment, we strongly recommend the following:

  • Drink 2 – 3 litres of water daily, keep a large bottle with you at all times and infuse with lemons and limes for flavour. This will flush out the crystallised lipids (dead fat cells) out of your body through the lymphatic system.
  • Follow the diet plan we issue and reduce your intake of alcohol and carbohydrates.
  • Reduce your intake of caffeine to no more than 1 cup a day.
  • Exercise vigorously after treatment to help stimulate lymphatic drainage (the body’s process of the removal of fat).
  • Regular body brushing at home, this is a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells.
  • Avoid hot baths or showers, steam or heat treatments for 24 hours.
  • Avoid alcohol for 48 – 72 hours.

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK

Radio Frequency Facial

Radio Frequency is all about stimulating your own collagen production. This innovative technology delivers concentrated radio frequency heat to the deepest dermis layers, promoting skin elasticity and firmness around the abdomen, face, legs, double chin and more.

During a treatment a machine is used to heat the skin to between 38-40 degrees with Radio Frequency, which feels like a hot stone face massage – you do feel heat in the skin but it’s comfortable. The heat causes the collagen fibres to shorten and contract, stimulating the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin fibres. This restructures and stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in tighter, toned skin, decreased wrinkle depth, fine lines, and leaving the skin firmer, defined and lifted.

Radio Frequency can be used on any part of the body to tighten any loose and sagging skin. It is also suitable for any age group, gender and is very safe with minor side effects. Radio Frequency is effectively used on areas of the face and neck, the breasts and tummy, and upper arms, thighs and legs. It can be used on any part of the body that requires the skin to become more tighter, and firmer.

Radio Frequency simply relies on the body’s own natural healing abilities meaning the results are far more natural and desirable than the tell-tale frozen stare associated with other treatments on the market. For example; injectables paralyses the muscle not allowing it to exercise. The muscle then deteriorates (muscle atrophy). Once the chemical has worn off, the problem is worse and you are forced to continue the downward cycle.

more information

Radio Frequency is non-invasive technology that uses an applicator to induce the generation of heat within the cutaneous tissues. The treatment has been used for many decades for a variety of medical applications. Radio Frequency penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and stimulate the body to produce new collagen and strengthen existing collagen fibres. The heating effect causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres and an increases in the metabolism of the ‘fibroblastin’. Radio Frequency continues to accelerate the production of new collagen fibres and strengthen elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin. Radio Frequency treatment for the double chin is great if your wanting to see quick results.

It takes approximately 30 minutes to treat a whole face and the only discomfort is some feeling of heat in the skin (which not everyone gets). There is no downtime – you could easily have a treatment at lunchtime and go out that evening looking amazing. Radio Frequency is the perfect complement to Ultrasonic Cavitation if you are looking for fat reduction or can also be used alongside 4D HIFU Facelift for extra lift and tone of the face. A course of 6 – 8 weekly treatments is recommended to achieve optimum results.

FAQS

  • Which Treatment Is Better, 4D HIFU Or Radio Frequency?
    4D HIFU in short is better for tightening and lifting the face area. However, at RT Aesthetics we recommend that every client has a face-to-face consultation to discuss the problem area in detail and what results their wanting to achieve. Every client is different and therefore the best way to understand what treatment would be best suited for you is to meet with you face-to-face. We don’t believe in charging a client for a 4D HIFU treatment if they don’t need it and only need a Radio Frequency facial. HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound and is the latest non-surgical, clinically proven technology, for lifting and tightening the face, neck and décolletage. HIFU is one of the most advance technologies today and has the power to target deeper layers under the skin the Radio Frequency.
  • Radio Frequency Results

    You get an immediate tightening of the collagen fibres, so it’s great to do before an event, but it also gives a long-lasting lift and increased volume. It also continues to promote collagen production over the 6 – 12 weeks following a treatment.

  • Radio Frequency Treatment Side Effects ?
    Radio Frequency treatment is completely safe with very limited side-effect. Some clients may experience redness around the the treatment area, although this passes within 1 – 2 hours after the treatment. Radio Frequency is completely safe and does not effect the blood vessels, nerves or connective tissue under the skin. The most frequently reported side effects of treatment with Radio Frequency energy are swelling, redness, bumps on or around the treated area, which typically disappear in a few days or weeks.
  • Do You Have Before and After Photos?

    We sure do! Most of our before and after photos are posted on our social media pages: Facebook (@rtaesthetics) & Instagram (@rtaestheticsltd). During the face to face consultation the aesthetic practitioner will show you before and after photos relating to the treatment you are looking to have.

CLIENT STORY

The best clinic I have ever been too! I’ve been to many different clinics in the past, however, the care, advice and results from this place has to be one of the best. I was looking todo some body confidence treatments as I felt I needed my jowls and face lifting and after attending different...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Carleigh Knox

I’ve had 2 treatments and both have been amazing. I had the 360 Fat Freezing treatment on my legs followed by the shockwave treatment. The fat freeze helped get rid of all the stubborn fat and the shockwave was great at breaking down my cellulite. Very knowledgeable, honest and caring clinic.

Anthony McGill

I had the 360 fat freezing treatment in September and since had 1 more treatment on my love handles. The treatment has worked well and I’ve been more then happy with my results (better than I imagined). The clinic is extremely caring and attentive and I’ve really enjoyed my experience

Harriet Brown

After learning lots about fat freezing during the consultation and reading lots online I booked in for treatment. I have seen such a big difference around my love handles and stomach area. The aftercare was great, you get a diet plan, email, follow up appointments and if I needed anything they were there for me.

Jill Evans

Amazing clinic and great staff. I really cannot fault the care and support I had throughout my treatment. They are honest from the beginning and don’t force you into anything. The pricing is very good and in my opinion they don’t charge enough for the treatments. I have since signed up as a member to benefit from monthly treatments.

Maria Sutton

A huge thanks to Ryan for today at RT Aesthetics for my fat freezing procedure. I was a bit nervous but more because I needed to get down to my underwear in front of you. You made me feel really comfortable and at ease. Everything was fully explained to me and I’am excited for the results.

Elizabeth Major

On the day I received treatment Ryan was so attentive and made sure I was comfortable from the outset. I had the cryolypolosis (fat freezing) treatment on my stomach and love handles and have seen such amazing results after only two weeks, even though as standard it is supposed to take up to six weeks for results to show.

Sharna Jackson

Very professional service throughout my consultation and first 360 fat freezing treatment. I just sat and watched Netflix with a cup of tea and a glass of water. They even have iPads and music depending on what you’d like todo but I enjoyed watching Netflix. Results so far have been great and can only get better. All together it’s been a lovely experience

Rachel Moriarty

I could not be happier with RT Aesthetics. Ryan made me feel at ease from the minute we met. I suffer really badly with anxiety and body dysmorphia so this was a very big deal for me. The attention he pays to detail and his knowledge of procedures is out of this world, he’s a very intelligent and talented individual. There is literally nothing to worry about!

Robyn Hayes

I’ve been to a few clinics this year and I had the HIFU somewhere else and it didn’t work so I was worried to try again with RT Aesthetics. I shouldn’t of been! The results I’ve had from the full face and neck 4D HIFU has made such a big difference. My jowls have tightened, my skin looks better and the care throughout was great.
