Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio-frequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to heat skin with the purpose of stimulating collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. It’s a nonsurgical method of tightening your skin and involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis.
Collagen is the most common protein in your body. It creates the framework of your skin and gives your skin its firmness.
As we age, our cells produce less collagen, which leads to skin laxity, typically occurring around age 35 to 40 when the quantity and quality of your collagen begins to decline.
The best thing about this treatment – it’s a lunch time thing. Depending on the area being treated it can take from 15 to 45 mins with minimal downtime. It’s considered a safe procedure with the most common side effects being temporary swelling, redness and some tingling in the skin.
Results won’t happen overnight but it will happen. You have to wait for the collagen and elastin to be produced so it will take around 6 to 10 treatments having one or two a week – patience is a virtue and as they say – all good things come to those who wait!
Ultrasonic cavitation is a body contouring treatment that relies on ultrasound technology to break apart fat cells and remove fat deposits under your skin. Ultrasound waves are sent deep into the layers of your skin, causing a disruptive vibration. Fat cells then break apart from each other and are dislodged from your dermal layers.
After a few days, the fat cells are absorbed by your lymphatic system and drained as waste from your body. Ultrasonic cavitation targets small areas of fat and helps contour your body. It isn’t a treatment for people who are trying to lose a lot of weight, rather those who are trying to lose body fat.
The ideal candidate for ultrasonic cavitation:
- is in good overall health;
- doesn’t smoke;
- has realistic expectations;
- has a well-balanced, nutritional regime; and
- is within 6 kilograms of their goal weight
The procedure for ultrasonic cavitation is pretty straightforward. A handheld ultrasound device is slowly manipulated over the target area. Typically a warm sensation is felt together with hearing a buzzing sound.
Like radiofrequency, it’s a lunch break thing! Treatments typically take between 40 minutes for two areas and there is no downtime at all! Also like radiofrequency, don’t expect to see results right away. It takes time for your body to break down and dissolve the fat cells that have been dislodged.
A minimum course of six treatments is required and 12 is preferable. We recommend treatments every four days and weekly as a minimum. On average, treatment requires 1 to 3 visits for visible results and final results can be seen within 6 to 12 weeks.
Before and after the treatment it is important to hydrate as much as possible to help the body flush the fatty cells through the lymphatic system and we also recommend a minimum of 30 minutes elevate heart rate exercise after the treatment to encourage lymphatic drainage.
Results of this treatment are permanent, as long as a healthy diet and exercise is maintained. If you have a sedentary lifestyle, fat deposits may return to areas that have been treated.
A great option is to combine this treatment with radio frequency skin tightening – the two treatments work hand in hand to reduce fat and tighten loosened skin.

If you have noticed a change in the color of your teeth and they are not as white as they used to be then an LED Teeth Whitening treatment is for you. Yellowing teeth are an unfortunate fact of aging, sped up by lifestyle circumstances including coffee, red wine and colored soft drink consumption as well as, smoking and other environmental factors which can all play a role and the dulling of our teeth.
LED light works alongside a tooth-whitening agent. The light will not change the color of your teeth if used alone but it does act as a catalyst to speed up the reactions in the whitening process when combined with a whitening agent. It is a safe, cheaper alternative to teeth whitening than visiting your dentist and is much safer than the older, UV light sources.
Whether you are preparing for a special day, or you just want your teeth to look whiter, our LED Teeth Whitening will restore your pearly whites and put a smile back on your dial – it’s never been easier!
