Radio Frequency - SkinFirst

Radio Frequency

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening with Lifting
Radio frequency is one of the safest, least invasive and yet most effective anti-ageing treatment available to people of all skin colours. In our early 20’s we have plenty of collagen in our skin. However, with age our collagen production decreases, so that by the time we reach our mid 40’s it is barely in production and due to the lack of collagen we notice our skin loses elasticity, sags and forms lines and wrinkles. Using the very latest SkinFirst Radio Frequency equipment we can stimulate your own natural collagen and tighten your elastin fibres to bring about long-lasting rejuvenation.

How does the Radio Frequency treatment work?
The radio frequency energy is directed onto the skin through optical gel which is applied before treatment. The radio frequency energy works by heating the dermal (ie lower) layers of your skin without having to pass directly through the epidermis (the surface skin) so that skin is maximally protected. The heat energy being delivered to the lower layers is absorbed by the many water molecules present in this area. The water molecules then begin to vibrate from the energy delivered causing additional frictional heat.

The neurotransmitters to the brain interpret this delivery of heat to the lower layers of the skin as being a perceived threat/potential injury and the body responds to this by stimulating collagen with the further benefit of tightening elastin fibres. This is the body’s natural reparative response and how it would deal with wound healing. The result is tighter, firmer, younger looking skin. There is also a freshness and youthfulness that results from the treatment due to the excitation of the water molecules which produces high levels of oxygenation (water being made up of part hydrogen and part oxygen). Oxygen stimulation below the skin surface promotes general skin health (assisting with acne and other scarring) in addition to the lifting and tightening that the technology is most well known for.

Who can have treatment?
Radio frequency is a safe non-invasive treatment and can be used on all skin types. It is very popular with clients – male and female, over the age of 35, as it is excellent at restoring elasticity, smoothing out lines and wrinkles and bringing about a more youthful looking complexion. As mentioned it is also used to help with acne scarring. So clients range in age from people in their 20’s to those in their 80’s! Men and women, and all skin colours.

What results can I expect and when?
Obviously results will vary depending on skin laxity and condition, which is usually dependent on age and lifetyle. Advice wil be given at your consultation as to what sort of results you can expect and some before and after examples will be shown to you, using the equipment that you will be treated with.

Many clients see a noticeable result even after one treatment and there is a cumulative effect as time passes. Results are often noticed by family and friends after a few treatments. The results are, and look, completely natural; and the treatments provide genuine long lasting effects at a cellular level – not just superficial muscle tightening. Skin looks smoother, fresher, firmer, and more lifted. Skin condition improves and a general healthy more vibrant appearance results – bringing llife back to sallow and dull complexions as well as eradicating lines and wrinkles. We recommend before and after photos are taken throughout your course, so that you can see the improvements.

What areas can be treated most effectively with Radio Frequency?
Best results are usually seen on the face, neck and decolletage. It is good for loose jaw lines, nasal labial folds (those lines from nose to mouth), lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead, under eye bags and circles, and generally skin that has aged chronologically and through exposure to damaging environmental elements such as the sun, smoking, wind in the winter months, alcohol and poor hydration over the years.

How does the treatment feel?
The treatment feels pleasantly warm and comfortable. It is a heat based treatment with the heat being delivered from the inside out, using safe and comfortable technology and administered by a specifically trained therapist. The therapist will work on each area of your face (and neck/decolletage if required) one by one – to raise temperature up to the optimum level for collagen stimulation and results. An infra red temperature aid will enable this to be monitored. You can relax and enjoy it!

How many treatments will I need?
We usually recommend a course of 8 – 10 treatments but this does depend on age and skin condition/laxity. Thereafter occasional maintenance treatments are advised. Your therapist will provide a free consultation and suggest how many treatments are recommended in your circumstances. Sometimes clients elect to have one off treatments for a special event. But for long lasting results (up to 2 years depending on age and lifestyle) a course will be needed. For older clients (60 years and above), for maximum results a second course could be required after the first.

There is no limit to the amount of treatments you can have, and the treatments come with a warning… you may get addicted to the new you and the compliments that are often received!

How long do I have to wait in between treatments?
Treatments can be taken as regularly as twice a week, but most people have treatments every week or every two weeks whilst they are on their course. If your budget doesn’t allow for this you can take treatments monthly. The results will just take a little longer to come through. After the initial course you can take a break and then either book in for another course 3 months later (for older clients or clients with more compromised skin) or you can have occasional maintenance treatments. Don’t forget that as time goes by you are continuing to age and are regularly exposed to environmental hazards which will take their toll and perpetuate the ageing process. These treatments are combating that, but will not last for ever as you are always ageing, so arrange a review session with your therapist once you have completed a course.

What do I need to do in between treatments?
Before treatments you must drink plenty of water so that you get the most out of your treatments. The more water molecules in the skin the easier it is for the skin to heat up and prompt the reparative response of collagen stimulation and oxygen production. Otherwise just turn up with or without make up. Your therapist can remove make up and you will be able to reapply after treatment.

What will happen after the treatment?
After the treatment there will be a more flushed look to the skin. For those with a sallow skin tone this will usually generate a very healthy appearance. For those with initial red skin tones there may be a higher than usual skin colour but this will generally subside quickly (within an hour or two usually). The skin will feel warm but this will cool after a relatively short period. You will feel a tautness and probably notice an improvement in texture and a more lifted look to the skin. Make up can be applied immediately and you can carry on with your day as usual, confident that you are on the path to a naturally younger looking you! Any other questions of course can be answered in a free consultation.

Look forward to the New You!

Client Testimonials

Fantastic service as always. Izzy & Millie make you feel so welcome. Izzy is super efficient & professional. I highly recommend Skin First.

Margaret

I wish I could go for a treatment here every day, it was such a lovely experience! Hayley was wonderful, so informative and just magical at what she does! everything was fantastic from the music to the decor to the energy of the space. Can’t wait to book in again soon! I’ve never had a facial before as I felt intimidated by such environments but it was such a warm and friendly place to be, I’d highly recommend this clinic to anyone and everyone!

Robyn

Izzy was brilliant, makes you feel really relaxed and takes time to make sure you are comfortable throughout the treatment. Had 3 RF Micro needling sessions and love the results.

Jackie

I have very dark hair and have always been very conscious of it. I started to have the laser hair removal treatment firstly to my underarms. After only two sessions I was so impressed with the results. My hair was virtually gone! As a result I now have three areas treated. It is truly a fantastic treatment and leaves your skin not only hair free but baby smooth. Furthermore, the service you will receive is both informative and highly professional. After years of waxing and sugaring I have now found a hair removal treatment that I would whole heartedly recommend.

I have always had my underarms waxed but decided to try laser hair removal instead. After only one treatment I was surprised at how few hairs grew back. I have just completed my fourth treatment and can’t really see any remaining hairs. But i will finish my course of 6 to ensure that all hairs have been removed as my therapist (Cathy) told me that there are some hairs that may not be in the active growing phase which could still come through. I am delighted with the results and will definitely keep my standing order going until I have done my bikini line and then maybe even my legs.

I have always had poor skin tone and a red blotchy face, which was diagnosed as Rosacea 3 years ago. I have been prescribed antibiotics orally and taken topical medication which helped a little with the postules but did not really have significantly noticeable results; and I don’t like to take antibiotics longer term. I was therefore delighted to find that the light based treatment at SkinFirst was able to help my condition. My cheeks are much less flushed and my nose has improved markedly, and that is only at the half way stage of my full course. I would recommend this treatment to anyone else who has rosacea.

My treatment at SkinFirst, at The Village in Warrington, was quick, easy and I was very happy with the result. I had an unsightly cluster of small red veins on my face and they have now gone completely.

I would like to thank you for the improvements to my general skin condition. Many people have commented about how well I am looking and I feel like I look several years younger at least. It has given me a boost of confidence, and I think I am going to tackle my thread veins next.

I was amazed that the sun spots on my hands disappeared following a course of treatments by SkinFirst. I expected them to perhaps go a little lighter but not to go completely. There was the added benefit that my skin felt much softer too. My hands were a give away to my age and I now feel so much happier about showing them off!

As a Clinical Scientist, I recently carried out training with the staff of SkinFirst at Warrington and was most impressed with the new ‘Super MPL Combi’ machine they have installed. This new technology uses a combination of Intense Pulsed Light and Radiofrequency making the treatments effective at lower levels of energy than would normally be the case. This makes the treatments safer and more comfortable for the clients.

I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the treatment I recently received at SkinFirst in Warrington. I had a prominent blood vessel on the side of my nose which has now completely gone. I hardly felt anything during the treatment which only took a few moments. This bothersome blood vessel had been previously treated at another clinic using a different type of laser which was not only painful but did not completely remove the problem – it came back. I would certainly recommend SkinFirst for anyone with a similar problem.

I have only compliments to say, having had beauty treatments for many years Skinfirst has to be the most professional, confident, competent and comfortable to date. I wish you and you company every success and I will certainly be recommending you in the future.

I felt nervous but felt a ease straight away. I had a lot of questions which were always answered. Saw great results after 2 treatments, I would recommend SkinFirst to my friends.

I have always felt very welcome when visiting the clinic. The service was excellent and I am very pleased with how quickly I got results.

Excellent introduction, I was put as ease and the course was clearly explained. Very professional, I felt that June gave that little extra in my treatment. I have used many treatments and anti-biotics with little or no improvement over a 35 years period. The results during and at the end of the course of 6 treatments goes beyond my expectations. My only wish is that I had done this 30 years ago. My thanks and gratitude to all at SkinFirst.

Wonderful night, extremely informative. Friendly girls with lots of advice, thank you very much to you all and see you all again soon.

I have found my skin tone improved immensely and my skin felt moisturized and hydrated, I would definitely recommend SkinFirst to my friends.

I am so impressed with the treatment and love the way that it works in a non-aggressive manner. From previous laser hair sessions I was always left with burnt, damaged hair and slight skin redness and scabbing following a treatment which looked unsightly for a couple of weeks whilst the hair was worked out of the skin. Your treatment worked without any of these nasty side effects… really impressed!

I had a Radio Frequency treatment and I couldn’t believe my husband even noticed! He said it looked a lot smoother and tighter around the jaw line and on the cheek area and he said it looked younger! The results are amazing, I can’t believe that was after only one treatment!

I was a little nervous about coming in for a treatment as I’ve never had anything like this before, but I was put at ease immediately. I can honestly say I really enjoyed the whole experience – Natalie was lovely, and very understanding. I was having laser hair removal on my bikini and she was so professional and I hardly felt anything. It was 2 weeks ago and I have already seen an amazing result with patches where there is no hair. I will definitely be booking in for my underarms and legs now I know how good the results are. Thanks so much and I wish I had done this ages ago!

Results were fantastic – even after a couple of sessions.
It’s like a miracle! No longer do I have to shave thick black hairs on a daily basis.

Thoroughly professional atmosphere and treatments.

For the first time in years I don’t have to wear make-up. I have had spots for most of my life and can’t believe how my skin looks now. Thanks so much!

I would definitely recommend the laser hair removal given by SkinFirst. It has completely changed my life. The service is excellent, staff very friendly and I have complete confidence in them.

I have fair skin & dark hair, after having just four sessions of the SkinFirst MPL machine. I have seen such a difference, the hair growth has slowed down so much I hardly have to shave, on some area’s like my underarms and bikini line there is no hair there any more, Its permanently gone!

Thank you so much for such a reasonable priced treatments, such good response.

My Birthday was coming up so I wanted a special treat for myself. So I called Skin First. I was welcomed with a warm reception and a glass of cold champagne.

I must admit I felt a little nervous, but everything was explained to me and I was soon looking forward to having a treatment done.My skin felt so much better and softer and I certainly saw an improvement in my skin.

I would recommend a visit to Skin First to everyone. I’m looking forward to my next appointment.

I go here for my MPL face laser treatment and I have to say Izzy is amazing! Pain free and you feel like your getting a mini facial! I love it and will always to go to SkinFirst.

Warm, comfortable surroundings and amazing treatment!

I highly recommend SkinFirst. It’s a lovely place, they make you feel really comfortable and provide all the info you need. I’m definitely going back for more treatments!

I love the results I am getting from their hair removal treatment! It does not hurt and the results can be seen straight away! Millie is amazing and the advice received is extremely useful. I would obviously recommend it to anyone wanting to get rid off any unwanted hair.

Absolutely amazing! Izzy is a credit – makes each visit brilliant by caring and making sure you’re well looked after. Can’t wait for my 4th visit in December! Thanks so much for each treatment. It’s lovely and clean & relaxing environment. Highly recommend to anyone.

I have been going to Skinfirst for a couple of months now and would highly recommend them. The dual radio frequency works absolute wonders on your face and is so relaxing. My skin is much more smooth, and so much more youthful looking, lines are far less obvious. Hair removal is so effective, very happy with legs and bikini. All treatments are very competitively priced.

Millie is so friendly, professional and puts you at ease straight away. The whole environment is very relaxing. I will continue to use Skinfirst on a regular basis. Thank you so much Millie.

The laser hair removal I’m having will be truly life changing when it’s complete, and my first radio frequency tonight was wonderful – can’t recommend it enough! Lovely staff and premises too, always enjoy my visits.

From the moment I walked through the door Millie put me at ease! The atmosphere is calm and relaxing, Millie is friendly, professional and knowledgeable.

The best bit? The laser hair removal is quick, painless and works! Can’t recommend it highly enough!

First visit to SkinFirst, so impressed with my facial by Izzy.

So relaxing, lovely welcome. Thank you x
