Radio Frequency Face Treatment

Pre-Treatment Preparation

    • Prophylactic antiviral therapy should be prescribed for clients with a history of cold sores (Herpes Simplex) when treating around the mouth.
    • Stop anticoagulants 7-10 days prior to treatment, if medically permitted.
    • The client should shave the area to be treated 1 day prior to the treatment as long and dense hairs prevent electrode contact with the skin’s surface.

    • No laser treatments , needling, Botox , filler treatment or chemical peels for 4-weeks prior to treatment

Combining Other Treatments with RF Microneedling:

Our RF Needling Treatment can be combined with a HIFU Skin Tightening treatment 4-weeks post treatment. If you are interested in accelerating your results with a combined-treatment approach, please speak with your Therapist to help you plan out your ideal treatment schedule.

Post-Treatment Care

  • We highly recommend using our Cellmula Centelbiome Repair Cream and applying this liberally to calm the effects and keep the area cool following your treatment.

  • Avoid sun beds and no sunbathing during the healing process of the skin (up to 2 weeks) and apply SPF 30 daily.
  • Drink plenty of water and avoid drinking any alcohol on the day of your treatment.
  • Don’t exfoliate the skin for 2-3 days after treatment
  • Do not wax a treated area for 3-5 days

Maintaining Your Results

Give Your Skin Time

Slight swelling, redness and a feeling of heat, are present immediately post-treatment and should subside quickly. Skin may flake/feel dry afterwards, this is all apart of the process and is nothing to be concerned with. The vacuum suction could also possibly leave superficial marks on the skin, this is normal and will heal. RF Microneedling creates instant heat coagulation points so you can feel the effects of tightening and firming immediately post treatment . The lifting effect will be evident over the next 4-6 weeks during the healing period .The results are natural and improve over time, the full effect of our RF Micro Needling treatment can be seen at 12 weeks post-treatment when the collagen remodelling process has been completed.
