SKIN TIGHTENING

Best for

Anti-ageing, skin tightening, smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles.

Tech explained

3D-RF Face & Body penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblastin order to accelerate production of new collagen fibres and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.


What areas can be improved with 3D-RF Face & Body?
3D-RF Face & Body targets anti-ageing for the face and body and can treat the forehead ‘crow’s feet’ upper lip, jowls and neck area, as well as on the body such as the abdomen and arms. Your therapist will assess your areas of concern to devise a tailored treatment plan to target your concerns.

How many treatments are recommended?

A course of treatment is typically advised to achieve maximum results this is usually 6 - 8 treatments, one treatment per week for 6 - 8 weeks.

 

What Results Can I Expect from this treatment?

Results can be seen as soon as after your first treatment, however a course of treatments are recommended as results are further improved after each treatment.

Can I combine 3D-RF Face & Body with other treatments

3D-RF Face & Body is a standalone treatment recommended for skin tightening and anti-ageing for the face and body. However your therapist may choose to combine 3D-RF Face & Body with other treatments to provide you with a bespoke facial depending on your skin.

What will I experience during treatment?

3D-RF Face & Body is a relaxing treatment. Glycerine will be applied to the skin, this acts as a conductor for the 3D-RF Face & Body energy. A small, round handpiece will be placed onto the skin and moved in gentle circular motions. A slight beeping noise will come from the machine, the handpiece will get warmer and warmer, building heat until it reaches 40 degrees. Your therapist will use an infrared thermometer to measure the heat of the skin. Once temperature has built up to 40 degrees, your therapist will continue to maintain the heat, continuing treatment on the area for 2 - 4 minutes, before moving onto the next area.
