Radiofrequency

 Dr Liz Dawes-Higgs uses radiofrequency and laser for dermatological facial rejuvenation.

Fractional radiofrequency is a customisable skin resurfacing treatment normalising the skins tone and texture. The device used has two applicators enabling ablation and resurfacing of the skin with non-invasive wrinkle reduction.  

 

WHAT IS RADIOFREQUENCY? 

Radiofrequency is an electromagnetic device that sends heat energy to penetrate deep into the skins tissue. The heat stimulates the tissue enhancing the production of new collagen and elastin. The device tips are designed in such a way leaving sufficient intact tissue in between to reduce the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), making for faster wound healing, therefore requiring minimal downtime.   

WHAT DOES RADIOFREQUENCY TREAT? 

Fractional radiofrequency works on mild to severe skin conditions reducing the appearance of acne scars, other scars, striae, rosacea, dyschromia, wrinkles, pores, and pigmentation. The treatment is safe for all skin types from fair to dark.   

 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT? 

There is minimal downtime after having Radiofrequency treatment. You may experience mild redness which should disappear within a day or two. You will be given instructions about how to care for your skin in the first 48 hours following treatment.  

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED? 

Usually 4-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is desirable. With top up and maintenance every 6-12 months.
