Frequently Asked Questions

Radiofrequency FAQs

What can you expect from a course of Radiofrequency?

Following an initial consultation, a highly skilled, specifically trained practitioner will carry out the treatment. The tissue within the skin is precisely heated at the dermis (the inner layer of the skin) using the Radio frequency system.

This can take up to 45 minutes in one session, dependent on the size of the area to be treated. It is a comfortable process and may at the most cause a slight redness for no more than 24 hours. You can resume your daily activities immediately after as no downtime is required.

Is this a safe treatment?

Radiofrequency is completely safe and incorporates the necessary safety precautions required. It has been used on thousands of patients worldwide.

Is Radiofrequency painful?

Little or no discomfort should be experienced with Radiofrequency, with patients often describing the feeling as a ‘warm massage’. Each person’s pain threshold is different but most people tolerate the treatment just fine.

When will you see the results from your treatments?

You will be able to see results from your treatment straight away, as it immediately tightens the deeper structures of the skin. As you progress through your course of treatments with Radiofrequency your results will become increasingly visible as new collagen develops and your skin is tightened further, for firmer, plumper skin.

Electrolysis FAQs

What is electrolysis?

Electrology is the science of permanent hair removal. Using state-of-the-art technology, a minute amount of electricity is gently applied to the base of the hair follicle. This process destroys the hair growth tissue. Therefore, the regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently eliminated.

What Makes Electrolysis Unique?

Electrolysis has been in practice to permanently eliminate hair safely since 1875.The ability to target hairs selectively makes creating a natural look in shaping eyebrows or hairlines very easy. Also true in the case of simply thinning out areas densely covered with hair, such as forearms. Electrolysis works on everyone, and it always works!

How much will treatments cost?

Electrolysis costs depend on a lot of factors including: how much hair needs to be removed, the size of area being treated, and where you get your services performed.

For best results, follow the electrologist’s recommendations in scheduling appointments. For areas that have been waxed or tweezed, treatments will be more frequent than for areas that have been shaved.

I heard electrolysis was painful. Is that true?

Electrolysis treatments are all about timing and intensity. Electrologists can choose between three different methods of treatment, each with its own variation of comfort levels but with the same comfort, effectiveness and permanency. The electrologist will consider your specific needs and design a treatment plan.

About Pulsed Light Treatment

What is pulsed light?

Pulsed Light systems use hand-held flash lamps that emit gentle pulses of light which are absorbed in different skin lesions. Excellent long term results are achieved when treating hair, superficial capillaries, skin pigmentation,acne and other skin lesions.

How does light-based technology work?

Light based technology is based on a method called “selective photothermolysis,”which works by selective destruction of a specified target without damging surrounding tissue. When treating textural complaints such as fine wrinkles and large pores, the light stimulates the growth of collagen which makes the skin glow and look more youthful.

Are pulsed-light aesthetic treatments painful?

No. During the procedure, a slight,momentary stinging sensation may be felt,but not pain.

Are pulsed-light aesthetic treatments safe?

All pulsed-light treatments are non-invasiveand safe, with minimum side effects.

About Hair Removal

What is the average rate of hair growth?

About 0.35mm a day, but this varies depending on body area, age and gender.

How many treatments are required?

The typical regimen is 6-12 treatment sessions, intervals between sessions for face 4-6 weeks and for body 6-8 weeks.

Why are multiple treatments necessary?

About 20-25% of human hair follicles on the body are in the growth phase at any given time. This is the percentage of hair follicles that can be destroyed in a single treatment session.
In order to eliminate almost 70% of the hair,treatment has to be repeated until the desired result is achieved.

About Facial Skin Rejuvenation Treatment

What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?

Pulsed light systems use hand-held flash lamps that emit gentle pulses of light which are absorbed in the skin. The treatment stimulates the growth of collagen and gives the skin a fresh and youthful look.

What are the benefits of using the triple solution?

Using the IPL, RF and IR technologies together,allows deep, yet safe penetration into the multiple skin layers, subsequently remodeling collagen, tightening skin and improving scars.
In addition, it ensures immediate, long lasting results in just a few visits to the clinic, with absolutely no downtime.

Is it safe to rejuvenate skin at any age?

Age is not an issue when it comes to non invasive procedures, as they are safe and reliable.

How many treatments are required?

Although results are already apparent after the very first treatment, a minimum of 3 treatment sessions are necessary to
achieve clear results.

How long does a skin rejuvenation treatment take?

Around 15-30 minutes, after which you can continue your daily routine.

Is the treatment painful?

You may experience a slight tingling sensation, but no pain.

About Body Contouring Treatment

What does body contouring entail?

This procedure uses Radio Frequency waves (RF) to produce heat under the skin; this heat effectively targets and breaks down fat cells. The fat is absorbed by the lymphatic system and flushed out. As a side effect of the treatment, the process rejuvenates the surrounding skin and renews collagen fibers, resulting in elastic, youthful and shining skin.

How many treatments are required?

Around 8-10 weekly sessions are recommended for best results, along with suggested periodic maintenance.

How long do treatments take?

Both body contouring and skin tightening sessions take around 30-60 minutes, after which you can immediately return to your regular activities.

How long does it take until results are visible?

The results are visible within 4 to 8 treatments.

What kind of results can I expect?

Although results vary from person to person, a typical body contouring treatment can decrease body measurements by 3 to 6 centimeters.

About RF Treatment

What are RF ?

Radio frequency (RF) use different types of energy to heat the different skin layers and provide a controlled tissue response.

How does RF treatment work?

RF body contouring uses the body’s electrical conductivity to transmit energy,which works to rupture localized fat cells
by raising the temperature of the tissue in designated skin layers.

Is RF treatment safe?

All Radio Frequency treatment is non-invasive and safe, with minimal side effects.

Is RF treatment painful?

While a slight tingling may be felt as the temperature of the tissue heats up, absolutely no pain will be felt.
