Radio frequency (RF) is one of the most popular and effective treatments available for tightening skin and reducing wrinkles. Radio frequency works by selectively delivering heat energy to the middle and lower levels of skin, stimulating new collagen growth. Radio frequency technology remains a popular procedure because it can deeply penetrate the lower levels of skin without causing any damage to the surface.
We use a high specification Aluma machine, which is a market leader for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. While there are other alternatives for wrinkle reduction available, Aluma RF treatment is one of the only, and thus most popular, options for skin tightening. Popular areas for tightening are the jowls and neck area. It can also be used on other areas of the body, including the arms and abdomen. The electrical impulses give the skin a more refreshed, youthful appearance, and results are effective even after the first treatment. Optimum results may require patients to have multiple treatments. This will all be discussed with a nurse practitioner during the initial medical consultation.
Generally, results following radio frequency treatment are not as dramatic as traditional facelifts. Unlike many facelifts, radio frequency treatment is not a surgical procedure, which means that patients can return back to their daily routine immediately. Side effects are rare: some patients may experience some redness but this subsides quickly. This is the ideal treatment for patients who want great results without having to have invasive treatment.
