what it is.

radio frequency is a very safe and non-invasive cosmetic procedure that has been clinically proven to improve skin for an overall younger appearance by smoothing the skin, diminishing lines and wrinkles, lifting and toning creping skin, promoting collagen production and much more.  this treatment is fantastic for anyone from their early 30's to late 50's with mild to moderate sagging of the facial tissues and is safe for all Fitzpatrick scale tones.  radio frequency, based on the scientific term, means "non-surgical way of 'reshaping' the body and face from beneath the superficial layers of the skin

what it does.

radiofrequency stimulates collagen production in the face and body by heating the skin to between 38-40 degrees.  this feels similar to a hot stone facial massage, you do feel the heat of the treatment but it is very soothing and comfortable.  this energy treatment that radio frequency produces is perfect for non-surgical tightening of loose or crepey skin typically on the forehead, around the eyes, on the cheeks, on the jaw line, neck and decollete but can be used anywhere!  also, a full treatment can be done in around 30 minutes!

the benefits.

radio frequency can soften fine lines and wrinkles, firm all the facial contours, lift and tighten and many other benefits!  there is no down time after a radio frequency treatment which means you can have a treatment on your lunch break and look your best for your dinner plans!  immediately following a radio frequency treatment you will see results of firmer, tighter collagen fibers and an increase in volume.  following a treatment it can continue to promote collagen for up to 6 weeks!  but every four weeks for a treatment is recommended due to cell turnover.  radio frequency may also reduce the appearance of cellulite when done regularly.  this is done through a process called lypolosys which literally begins to melt fat.  the body is treated with a larger head which produces more heat than the head for the face

the plan.

it is recommended to start radio frequency in a series of 6 treatments done once a week for six weeks.  after that it isrecommended to do them once every 4 weeks for maintenance of the face and neck.  for treating the body it is recommended to begin with a series of 8 treatments with treatments being one to two times per week with an maintenance of every two weeks thereafter.  it is always recommended to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine for best results
