RF skin tightening uses high frequency radio waves of energy to selectively heat the sub-dermal connective tissues. The application of heat causes existing collagen to contract, giving an instant plumping effect, and denatures or breaks down the old collagen to stimulate re-growth of new fibres.
At Ascot Body Sculpture we use the very latest PureGenex multi-polar RF technology to deliver our treatments.
How Does it Work?
During the RF treatment three processes happen:
- Existing collagen tissues shrink giving an immediate tightening effect to the skin
- Old, fibrous collagen is broken down by the body
- Fibroblasts (the cells that create the new collagen) are stimulated and create fresh, new, supple collagen
The fresh collagen fibres are laid down over a 3-6 month period and last up to two years. Over time and with successive treatments at a 2-3 week interval, new collagen fibres are formed resulting in a plumper, fresher and more youthful appearance.
Is it Safe?
RF Skin tightening is completely pain free and safe. It can be used to lift the lower face, soften frown lines and eye wrinkles, address nasal labial folds, mummy tummies and low grade cellulite. Certain contra-indications will prevent us from treating everyone. You can read the full list on our FAQs page.
The treatments are performed at 2-3 week intervals and a course of 6 is recommended with with top-up treatments every 3 or 4 months after completion of a course.
Multi-polar RF can be used to treat the following areas:
- Eyes – crows feet
