Introduction to Radio-Frequency
Loose or sagging skin can make even the most confident person self-conscious, whether caused simply by age or sudden weight loss. One way to treat this condition is using Radiofrequency energy (RF), which penetrates deep into the skin to affect the deeper epidermis and subcutaneous fat layers. This causes tightening of the skin and an improvement in the structure of underlying tissue, without damaging or changing the texture of skin.
This treatment can be applied to any skin type by our experienced doctors; Dr Tapan Patel specifically has a special interest in treating patients of colour.Book consultation
Radiofrequency can be used on the face to treat the forehead in order to lift the brows and tighten skin; under eyes to thicken skin, tighten and lift upper cheek skin; cheeks to lift as well as reduce large pores; jawline to reduce jowls and tighten sagging skin; neck to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles; and on the mid-face. Other uses include to tauten the stomach, thighs, legs, and arms.
This method of body contouring is proven to work with minimal downtime and results noticeable around three months after treatment.
