Dr Roy Chio uses radiofrequency energy which is able to penetrate deep into the skin to tighten and lift it. Different areas of the body can be effectively treated:
• Skin Tightening and Lifting
• Reduces specific fatty areas
• Skin rejuvenation and pore tightening
• Reduces fine lines and wrinkle
• Improves acne and acne scars
• Tightens loose skin of the neck and décolleté area (below the neck)
• Improves the appearance of cellulite
• Reduces localised collection of fat
• Minimises stretch marks
Using a hand held handpiece, Dr Chio applies radiofrequency energy deep into the skin. This warms the deep skin layers to stimulate cellular activity and firm the connective tissue. Patients only feel a slight warm sensation that is likened to soaking in a spa tub.
Post-treatment, Dr Chio says that there is no downtime and patients can resume their activities as normal. Sessions are normally monthly for 4 sessions with 6 monthly top-ups if desired. Due to its ability to penetrate deeply into the skin and even the fat and muscle layers, RF treatment is ideal when combined with IPL or lasers.
