Skin laxity is unfortunately something that happens to thousands of people, whether it is a result of aging, weight loss or genetics.
Radio Frequency (RF) treatments are procedures which heat tissue to tighten skin and stimulate subdermal collagen. The technology heats the skin without damaging it in order to break down fatty cells and stimulate collagen production. This improves the skin tone and elasticity.
RF effectively works to break down cellulite causing fat cells meaning it is fantastic at treating the dreaded ‘orange peel’ so many of us battle with.
Radio Frequency treatments can also treat excess pockets of fat on the stomach, hips and thighs, reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten slack skin caused by weight loss or pregnancy.
The RF method of body sculpting dissolves fat cells and firms collagen in the patient’s skin and is even more effective when combined with other sculpting and contouring treatments such as Wood Sculpting, HIFU and Cavitation.

How soon before or after cosmetic injections can I have a Plasma Treatment?It is recommended to wait at least 7 days before or after cosmetic injections so that any post-treatment bruising can settle.
How long before I see results?Many clients see results within a couple of days and further improvement to treated areas at six weeks. Full results are revealed 3 months post treatment.
Does Plasma treatment hurt?Plasma pen treatment is uncomfortable. We recommend you come to your appointment pre-numbed with a topical numbing cream. Some numbing creams can take up to 40 minutes to take full effect. If applying at home, make sure you have allowed enough time for the numbing to take effect prior to your appointment time.
