What is Radio Frequency treatment?
Radio Frequency treatments offer clients a way to replace Botox™ and become their wrinkle remover of choice. Growing numbers of the rich and famous, including Amanda Holden and Mel B, claim to use this non-surgical treatment to retain youthful, glowing skin, without the telltale frozen stare of Botox™.
How does it work?
A gel is applied to the skin and a ceramic wand gently heats the skin to 40 degrees – the temperature required for the skin to produce more collagen. Radio waves are also transmitted into the skin. Radio frequency offers immediate skin tightening, wrinkle removal and jowl lifting results. Radio Frequency is performed on the entire face (including the eye area) and neck.
What age range will benefit most from RF?
Anyone with a need for skin tightening will benefit from this treatment. Usually from the age of around 29, with no upper age limit.
What will a typical treatment plan consist of?
The initial course will usually be around 6 treatments performed twice per week. After this, maintenance sessions are recommended once every 4-6 weeks.
We also recommend a ‘top-up’ course every 2 years to ensure the results are long lasting.

The Science Behind Radio Frequency Treatment
Radio Frequency waves cause natural repositioning of the electrons from the positive to negative pole. This provokes a deep heating of the tissues which in turn causes the shortening of the elastin fibres. This gives the immediate effect of tissue contraction. It also stimulates Fibroblasts to produce new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
The high energy Radio Frequency waves have significant effects on the subcutaneous tissues. They act on the connective and adipose (fat) tissue causing cell metabolism to increase, providing healthy stimulation of the microcirculation. A greater supply of oxygen leads to faster elimination of accumulated toxins.
Monopolar (Capacitive RF)
- Transmission of energy by condenser effect.
- Deep lifting action.
- Formation of collagen at all depths.
- Passage of current from handset to return plate.
Bipolar (Resistive RF)
- Electrons pass from one electrode to the other.
- Works at shallower level than monopolar.
- Particularly suitable for treating face, neck and decollete.
- Stimulation of beneficial heat induces regeneration of tissue.
