Radio Frequency Facial Contours is the perfect treatment for toning skin laxity in the jowl, chin and neck area.
How does Radio Frequency
Facial Contours Work?
Radio Frequency Facial Contours utilizes Radio Frequency and mild suction to lift, sculpt and contour the face, neck, jowls and eye area. The treatment also heats the dermal layer which shrinks collagen fibers within the skin thus creating an immediately firmer appearance to the treatment area. Overtime, the stimulation of collagen that is achieved further improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
For optimum results we recommend a course of treatment. Why not 'ADD ON' a Chin up treatment at a discounted price to further improve your results?

How does it work?
Essentially - Radiofrequency current will heat tissue deep beneath the surface of the skin and cause:-
Shrinkage of collagen – collagen fibres can shrink by up to a third in length
Denaturing of the collagen – leading to longer term production of new “straight” collagen fibres
Breakdown of some fat cells and stimulation of new elastin fibres – helping to reduce the appearance of fat cells
