Tell us how effective RF is?
RF is a gentle treatment that has virtually no downtime, and is clinically effective in stimulating collagen production. This should be a staple in everyone’s skin care ritual – the benefit of this is it’s also quite a relaxing experience. RF is a facial rejuvenation treatment. Starting in our 20s, our skin loses collagen at a rate of 1% per year. This means that by the time we are middle-aged, our skin has lost almost half of the essential elements that keep it firm and elastic. Our high performance RF is a treatment designed to deliver fuller, plumper skin without any downtime.
Who is the ideal client for this treatment?
Relatively good skin health, no active acne is the ideal patient in their late 20 – 50’s, this treatment is a real red carpet ready treatment that give you a glow before a big event. It’s also a favourite with brides.
How many sessions are required?
A minimum of six sessions, and then a regular treatment once every six weeks.
RF has been around a long time – has there been any updates to
It has been around a long time but unlike laser treatments, RF has been found to be effective in the safe delivery of energy into the skin, independent of skin colour. RF penetrates deeper than laser treatments, reaching approximately 1.5mm to 3mm beneath the skin›s surface as a diffused energy source. This diffused energy and those specific depths help to stimulate collagenesis without any downtime deep in the structural layers of the skin.
What has been the advantage of the clinic investing technology?
Any good clinic will have a full spectrum of the correct medical grade technology that work on different types of patient concerns. As a non-ablative and non-invasive technique, radiofrequency rejuvenation does not cut into your skin or blast off layers of it.
How popular has the device been with clients at the clinic?
This treatment does have a loyal following – for those people that want to maintain their results or just get a quick glow up.
What products do you stock in the clinic?
We stock a locally compounded range of clinically formulated skincare called Skin Genius MD. These are personalised and a prescribed paramedical range of skincare and we also have the professional range of Dermal Peels from Skin Genius MD. The benefit is these are freshly compounded actives, which means they remain quite active.
What results can clients expect and how long does it take to show the effect?
Results always with any treatment vary from patient to patient, and are dependent on a number of things such as patients current skin condition, how much sun exposure they have had, their current skin laxity. Clients that are looking for a no downtime glow up this is the treatment for them! We have a loyal fan following for this treatment and they absolutely love it!
Is this treatment ideal to be used in conjunction with any other treatment in the salon?
Absolutely we always encourage a multi-modal approach to skin health! There is no one treatment that fixes everything, a combination of cosmetic injectables, PDO threads, skin needling, dermal peels and non-ablative RF can do wonders for a person – but it depends on the individual.
