WHAT IS FRACTIONAL RADIO FREQUENCY?
Focused radio frequency waves direct controlled heat all the way through to the dermis to gently ablate microscopic columns of skin. This actively stimulates the fibroblasts to increase the production of collagen to repair the damaged tissue and remodel existing collagen. The overall effect is skin rebuilding itself from the inside out, filling in acne scars, lines and wrinkles, skin tightening and improving irregularities like hyperpigmentation and discoloration.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Treatments are safe and effective on all skin types and you can treat:
- Entire face – to improve texture, skin ageing and discoloration
- Specific areas of acne scarring
- Neck – to tighten loose skin and improve ‘chicken skin’
- Décolleté – to improve sun damage, discoloration and vertical lines
- Hands – to erase sun damage and hyperpigmentation and thicken the skin
- Body – treats stretch marks on various parts of the body
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Between 45 and 90 minute appointments are needed depending on the area to be treated and the number of passes required.
HOW IS THE TREATMENT ADMINISTERED?
Using the hand-held Venus Viva piece, we will treat targeted area(s). The Venus Nano- Fractional Radio Frequency is set to the exact parameters for your skin type and skin concern. We work very thoroughly and methodically over the specific treatment area to give you an active and stimulating treatment. Helping to achieve extremely effective results on skin texture and tone.
HOW WILL IT LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TREATMENT?
The amount of energy directed into your skin varies depending on the concern we are treating, however discomfort is very tolerable. Afterwards your skin will appear red and somewhat inflamed, much like a mild sunburn—this is simply a natural reaction, vital to the process of skin repair. This inflammation causes the release of healing agents such as growth factors to the site, which ultimately boost skin’s natural regeneration process. The redness can last up to 48 hours, depending on your skin’s sensitivity.
IS THERE ANY DOWN TIME?
Day 1: Possible erythema and red appearance, which varies between people – usually this only lasts 24 hours.
Day 2: A pink hue persists like a moderate sunburn. Light swelling may be noticeable on waking and usually subsides as the day goes on.
Day 3: The skin feels more dry but most of the redness has resolved.
On subsequent days the skin may feel tight and dry. The dryness usually resolves by 7-10 days post treatment
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
3-4 treatments spaced four to six weeks apart are recommended for optimal results. You will start noticing the results within 4 weeks but your skin will feel much softer within 2 weeks.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY SKIN AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Your normal skincare programme can be resumed after day 3, with more active products being introduced after day 5, or when the skin has returned to normal.
Appropriate skincare will be recommended on the day of your treatment to help accelerate the healing process, protect the skin from the environment and enhance your desired results.
