Body Contouring

A transformative, non-surgical treatment for body shaping, skin tightening, fat and cellulite reduction. This treatment can be performed on almost any part of the body. Multiple treatments are required in order to achieve optimal results.

A complimentary consultation is required prior to any first time bookings for Laser and any Medical Spa Treatments. All prices will be discussed and quoted at the time of the consultation.

How does it work?

Radio frequency treatments deliver an electrical current via electrodes to the skin, in order to heat the deeper and more superficial layers.
When skin receives a high frequency electrical current the cells in our bodies interpret this as an energy source, and the layers in our skin act like a resistor to the electrical current.  Depending on the cell’s level of resistance, they will heat up to varying degrees. It is the process of heating that helps to tighten and rejuvenate skin, smoothing its appearance and reducing localized pockets of fat.

How will it contour and tighten my skin?

As our skin matures, the collagen and elastin proteins which help support a tight skin structure, start to break down. And as skin loses elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles and a dull or saggy appearance are never far away.

The radio frequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibers are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibers, and fat cells drain then shrink, while those all-important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue) are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibers. The effect of this is tighter, smoother, younger looking skin with a visible ‘lift’ . Fat cells are reduced and stubborn cellulite looks a lot less noticeable.

What is the treatment like?

Each area on your body is treated for 10-30 minutes. All that’s required is to show your therapist your problem areas and lie back on the treatment bed and wait for the magic to begin. The therapist will apply a lubricant to your skin to act as a protective barrier between you and the electrode which can get quite hot! Then it the electrode is rubbed over your skin, focusing on any areas that need extra attention. The technique is so relaxing that actually it’s easy to fall fast asleep – always a sign of a good treatment.

When can I expect to see results?

Most patients will be able to notice an immediate result in the tightness of their skin, but results continue to emerge in the days following the treatment . Skin is smoother and muscle tone is more visible.

For longer term results, one session isn’t enough. Normally, multiple sessions are required, generally 1-3 per week until you’ve had about 6-12 treatments in total, this depends on the results you want and the advice of your esthetic practitioner.

To maintain the effects try and lead a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise otherwise that cellulite could just as easily come back.

Are there any side effects?

Normally there are no side effects from the treatment, but some people might find the treatment area is a little red post treatment but this usually resolves after 30 mins – 24 hours post treatment. Rarely swelling or bruising may occur, but these effects usually settle within a few days.
