Radiofrequency is a form of energy used to heat the tissue to stimulate collagen production. It is known as a “lunchtime” procedure. The result is reduction of the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. It also can help the skin appearance of cellulite by smoothing the appearance of the skin and reducing the dimpling appearance.
Radiofrequency can be delivered as monpolar, bipolar or tripolar technology. Of the three modalities, monopolar has the ability to penetrate deeper than the others. It works by achieving a target tissue temperature and holding it for a certain length of time .
Who cannot have the treatment? Those with a cardiac pacemaker or a cochlear implant. Prior to treatments, we always have an assessment to ensure the client is a suitable candidate.
We have a new and novel way to give you treatments with consistent results and no downtime. This is a monopolar treatment used both for the face and body. For the face it is used around the eye area to tighten the skin and may be used on the forehead to lift the brows and to tighten the lower face. On the body it may be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite, “mommy tummy”, loose skin above the knees, legs and buttocks.
Through radiofrequency, heat is delivered to the correct depth for the correct temperature for the correct time – all very precisely.
As with any cosmetic procedure, there is no guarantee of success, but we have had only very few non-responders. It is for this reason it is sold in packages initially of 3, as we have seen by 3 treatments a good response is usually present.
How many treatments are needed? This depends on the area, the degree of severity of the problem , laxity of the skin, and individual response.Some of our clients are satisfied with 3 treatments and others require up to 7.
Our physician has carefully chosen the technology after reviewing many other machines and found this was one of the safest and gave the most consistent results.
What can it treat?
tired appearance of the eyes
This treatment is done every 3-4 weeks for 3 – 7 treatments on average. After that a maintenance regime of 1 – 3 treatments a year may be done.
All photos below were taken at Clarite Laser. The first and third photo are under the eye tightening, 2nd is under the arm after one treatment, and the 4th isof the leg also after one treatment. You can see in phote #3 the skin is much tighter and the crepiness is reduced. Possibly she will require an under eye (tear trough ) filler to fill in the hollow once the skin is tighter.
