Body Contouring, and Skin Tightening and Lifting

Posted on: May 21st, 2015 by Catherine Catto

Our fastest growing treatments are for body shaping using combined technologies in our BodyCurve Deluxe system, and facial skin tightening and lifting.

We have found that hair removal, until the last couple of years, has been the most sought after treatment, and whilst a high proportion of clients still seek permanent hair reduction, this has been overtaken now by the demand for comfortable and results driven rejuvenating treatments, which look natural, in particular for those who are aged 40 plus.

Our BodyCurve Deluxe system offers monopolar radio frequency which penetrates to the dermal layers and causes fat shrinkage via stimulation of fibroblasts which tighten the elastin fibres and promote collagen regeneration. It also contains mechanical rollers and suction to aid lymphatic drainage and to ensure the targeted cells are reached at maximum penetration depths. Finally it has infra-red for surface smoothing and gentle rejuvenation. Areas that are treated with great success include stomach following childbirth or where exercise fails to get rid of remaining slack skin, upper arms (‘bingo wings’), buttocks, thighs and knees. It also is excellent at reducing the appearance of cellulite.

The total body lifting makeover wouldn’t be complete without a radio frequency treatment on the face, as this can produce remarkable results both immediately and after a delayed period. SkinFirst are able to offer both bipolar radio frequency at different penetration depths and monopolar radio frequency. The difference between these is that bipolar is a more controlled and targeted heat which does not go as deep, and so is ideally suited to the face where fat pads have to be protected to maintain a youthful appearance. However there are areas such as jowls which may benefit from the deeper monopolar technology. SkinFirst are industry experts in using the full range of options and techniques for safe and effective results. We train therapists and medical practitioners in these treatments and also in how to achieve the best results for permanent hair reduction, thread veins, rosacea, acne, pigmentation and photo rejuvenation.

Our next training course is on Monday 15th June and Tuesday 16th June at our premises in Duchess House, Warrington, Cheshire, WA4 6PU. If you are interested in attending please call us on 01925 446688 or email
