With beauty treatments on the rise, it comes as little wonder to see new age technologies being used to strengthen the results of popular skin treatments.

Radio frequency technology used in Thermage is the new age mantra to tighten the early stages of sagging skin. The process helps rectify the subcutaneous tissues around the neck and sides of the face to create a sharper jawline. The radio frequency energy is used to warm and stimulate the fibro blasts in the dermis.  This procedure is carried out while keeping the skin's surface cool. The process promotes the contraction of the existing collagen fibres and stimulates new collagen growth. Needless to say, the end result is a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.  

This minimally invasive treatment is designed to help tighten, firm and contour the abdomen, arms, thighs and buttocks in a single treatment.

The treatment does the same without surgery – using little or no downtime. Radio frequency energy treatment is a technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin. It is ideal for those people who believe they are not old enough to have a surgical procedure. Radio frequency is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening. It is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues. It is commonly used to treat areas like the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck.

By using radio frequency energies, tissues are cut or coagulate d, which in turn helps tighten the skin. When penetrated deep into the skin, the radio frequncy energies affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers, causing tightening and improvements to the underlying tissue structure. The price of the treatment varies, and depends largely on the severity of the issue.

Sublime treatment, on the other hand, uses a unique dual combination of Bipolar radio frequency and infra red light to tighten the skin again with no  downtime  or  side effects. This combination technique provides controlled deep dermal heating which firms the collagen fibres and stimulates formation of new collagen fibres, resulting in the immediate and long term improvement of wrinkles and facial contour. It is one the fastest and most effective non-invasive treatments to address mild sagging skin, regardless of skin type or colour. This treatment helps restore the facial texture and contour of your youth.
