What Is Radio Frequency Treatment? 

Radio frequency treatment is also referred to as thermal lift or thermage. It is one of the  ways collagen can be restored that is lost from your skin tissue over time. To do this, the skin is gently heated to create a tightening effect. It’s the heat that triggers collagen production. 

Collagen is responsible for repairing skin cells in your body. It’s also how your skin remains youthful. As you age, collagen levels begin to diminish and less collagen is produced over time. With a collagen treatment like radio frequency, collagen production is triggered which helps repair the skin, including the damage caused by age. As well as producing collagen, elastin is also produced. This ensures that skin elasticity is improved, dramatically reducing issues with skin that is sagging or has wrinkles. 

You might think that heating up your skin sounds like a painful process. However, we’re pleased to say this is not the case. Most of our clients describe the effect as being similar to receiving a hot stone massage. As such, it could even be quite comfortable. There’s no pain and since this is a non-invasive procedure no anaesthesia is required.

Ultimately, this collagen treatment for smooth skin is a way to trigger a process that naturally helps your body look youthful for longer. New skin cells are also created through this process which helps you look years younger while also tackling skin issues that could be impacting your self-confidence. 


How Is This Treatment Completed?

The process of radio frequency can seem quite magical. We’ll move a heat wand across the skin which reaches forty degrees. This is enough to trigger the production of collagen.  As mentioned, due to the heat, this can feel quite relaxing. That’s complemented by the application of a cosmetic gel that’s applied as the wand moves in circular motions. During this process, the lower levels of skin are heated.  In doing so, your brain thinks that the skin has been injured. That causes the brain to stimulate the healing response which triggers both elastin fibres as well as collagen production and even promotes a reduction in fat cells.  You will typically need to complete six treatments over three weeks with another 4 to 6 weeks of treatment after this for the best results. 

Radio frequency can be used for a variety of purposes including to:

  • Treat sagging skin
  • Smoothen stretch marks
  • Tighten areas of loose skin
  • Reduce fat

As you can see, radio frequency can be used for a range of reasons. As well as triggering collagen for face treatment, it can be useful to correct issues on other parts of the body as well. As such, it can benefit a wide range of different individuals. It can even be beneficial for those in their twenties who want to get ahead of the ageing process.

Does It  Work?

We’re pleased to say that radio frequency is a highly effective treatment and our clients are often thrilled with the results. Indeed, many beauty professionals swear by this treatment and it’s even reportedly used by celebrities including Mel B and Kim Kardashian. Indeed, Kim Kardashian has claimed that radio frequency is the reason why her skin remains “lifted.”  Thousands of people around the world are already benefiting from this treatment and you could certainly be next. 

You don’t even need to just rely on the word of the celebs. There are also research studies that demonstrate the heating technique used through radio frequency does provide real benefits to the skin. 


What Are The Side Effects?

As radio frequency involves heating the skin, the main side effect to be aware of is going to be redness. For this reason, radio frequency is not recommended if you have already been diagnosed with rosacea. Rosacea causes inflammation of the skin and radio frequency will likely make the redness worse.  Furthermore, as with most aesthetic treatments and even non-surgical treatments, this is not a suitable option if you are breastfeeding or pregnant or have skin cancer.

In rare cases, there can also be other side effects including:

  • Swelling
  • Blistering 
  • Burning

In extremely rare cases, there may be skin indentations, scarring and subcutaneous fat loss. Typically, these side effects are a result of low-quality treatment. At Viauty, we ensure that we utilise the latest, advanced equipment and ensure that all team members are highly trained to provide this treatment in the right way. We will also complete a consultation to ensure that this treatment is suitable for you.

Can Radio Frequency Be Used For Weight Loss?

As discussed, this form of skin treatment can be used on the body as well as the face and is often used as part of a full body treatment. As a fat reduction method, this is completely painless and it does lead to improvements. Researchers describe the results as causing fat cells to die off after treatment with radio frequency has been completed. It is often used to tone areas including the upper or lower abs as well as the outer thighs. Our clients are often delighted with the results it can have on the upper arms, reducing the skin sag. It can even be used treat cellulite. 

How Much Does It Cost?

This treatment is more affordable than most people think. However, prices will vary depending on the company you choose and the number of sessions that you need. For instance, you can book one treatment or multiple treatments over a set period. We recommend that our clients book multiple treatments over a relatively short time frame to ensure the best results. Some clients will also combine radio frequency with other treatments we offer to ensure that they get stunning results. Typically, the total cost can be approximately £300 for each area that needs treatment. 

If you need more information about the costs, please contact us today. We will be happy to discuss pricing and help you understand the value of the service that we deliver. 


How Often Can You Have Radio Frequency Treatment?

Some beauty therapists suggest that you should complete this treatment every three to four days. However, as mentioned, it is recommended that you complete the treatment twice a week for a few weeks at least. Some people will receive more treatments than this depending on how many areas of the body they want to work on. 

Be aware that while you can have treatment regularly, the results will typically last up to two years. As such, there is usually no need to constantly book a new appointment unless it is for different areas of your body. For instance, you can explore skin tightening treatments for stomach issues as well as to trigger collagen for face treatment.
