Brisbane Skin Tightening Clinic
Radio frequency and ultrasound skin tightening combine in safe, effective, and nonsurgical procedures that firm and rejuvenate the skin on the face and body with noticeable results after just one session.
Sculpt, tighten, and improve your skin’s elasticity and surface by enhancing collagen and elastin production in targeted areas. Revive the taut, toned look of your younger face, tighten the skin around your stomach post pregnancy, and much more.
Sophisticated devices are used to treat the most common problems related to aging such as sagging or lumpy skin, wrinkles, cellulite, and excess fatty tissues.
Non-surgical, heat energy treatments stimulate healing, boost collagen and elastin production, and significantly improve the skin’s elasticity through tissue remodeling and skin tighening. The result is smoother, tighter, healthier, and younger-looking skin.
What is Radio frequency?
Radiofrequency is essentially heat energy that has been scientifically proven to sculpt and reshape the body and face from beneath the superficial layer of skin.
This heat energy penetrates soft tissues beneath the skin’s surface – at the deeper dermis level – without affecting the upper epidermis layer.
Working with the deepest layers of the skin causes the tissues in that area to compress and realign, dramatically speeding up the collagen production process, which normally takes many months to complete.
Once healthy, new collagen is present at the dermis level, exposure to additional radio frequency tightens and sculpts the tissue, resulting in a more youthful and elastic surface.
Radiofrequency is most commonly used for:
- Removing cellulite by diminishing excess fatty tissues
- Reducing male and female body fat (regardless of age)
- Eliminating fine lines and improving lumpy or stretched skin
- Post-operative liposuction smoothing
- Contour reshaping
- Acne scarring
To optimize results, radiofrequency is sometimes combined with ultrasound therapy.
Ultrasound devices were first approved for eyebrow lifting in the USA in 2009, and have subsequently been used for treatment of skin and tissue laxity.
Ultrasonic energy is used to produce specific micro-coagulation zones deep in the dermis and subcutaneous adipose tissue. Repair of the deep tissue damage leads to contraction and tissue remodeling in the months following treatment, which results in the desired skin tighening effect.
Since the superficial dermis and collateral tissues are spared, the risk of scarring and downtime is decreased and Ultrasound can be effective for different skin types.
