This non-surgical skin lightening treatment which uses a combination of electromagnetic pulses and radiofrequency energy to improve elastin and collagen production. This procedure can be used in a variety of areas around the body including the arms, belly, face, and neck. It reduces wrinkles and firms sagging skin to give you a young and beautiful look. Its nonsurgical nature makes it a top choice among people who want to undergo body contouring but do not want to be under a knife in surgery.
The name is usually misleading to many as the process involves the use of heat and not cold. The skin is infused with Radiofrequency energy which is delivered deep into the skin as heat. This then contracts elastin and collagen fibers present in the skin and triggers the body’s natural healing response which promotes the production of more collagen and elastin (these are the proteins which give the skin elasticity and structure). This process effectively tightens and firms the skin over time as new collagen and elastin and produced.
It is non-surgical and non-invasive hence It is always a better option than plastic surgery
You will experience immediate results which will get better over time as more elastin and collagen are produced.
It is safe for all skin types hence you do not have to worry about your skin tone or color
It is not magic, therefore you might not get the results you are looking for. You need to understand this and manage your expectations
If you have prior health conditions you should consult a doctor as this can seriously affect your chances of being able to undergo the procedure
What happens during the procedure?
Before the procedure, you will need to ensure you have clear skin devoid of any external bodies eg makeup, moisturizer, or perfumes. A gel similar to the type used during an ultrasound will be applied to your skin to create a layer between it and the device. During the procedure, the device will be run over your skin as the heat is turned up gradually. The heat can be compared to a hot stone massage and is not intended to be very hot, if you experience excessive heat, alert the practitioner to turn down the heat. At the end of the procedure, your skin will be a little pinkish but there is no downtime as you can begin your routines right after treatment.
How soon will I see results?
Noticeable changes will be seen later in the future because this is when your body has produced enough collagen and elastin. You might also notice immediate tightness after the first session but continuous sessions will show more results as they progress. Between one to two years, your results should become much more visible especially after your final session in the series. It is always best for you to be more patient when undergoing these procedures as they are usually gradual when showing results, unlike surgical procedures.
