FAQs on Ultrasound-RF Treatment
Ultrasound-RF is the latest non-surgical, effective and safe treatment to treat all areas of the face and body, so that you can achieve a contoured, firm, lifted and tightened appearance. Ultrasound-RF works uniquely by delivering synchronized ultrasound and radiofrequency into the skin. Controlled heating and cooling ensure that energy is delivered to various depths in the tissue painlessly and allows for all tissue depths to be effectively and safely treated.
What is Ultrasound-RF?
Ultrasound-RF is a next generation skin tightening treatment, the first that uses simultaneous radio frequency and ultrasound in a single applicator. The treatment utilizes different programs, for unmatched versatility and superior safety and comfort levels in different body areas.
How does Ultrasound-RF work?
The radiofrequency (RF) and Ultrasound devices within the applicator provide controlled heating and cooling for non-surgical skin tightening. This ensures layering, where energy is delivered to varying depths from the superficial layer to deep tissue. This stimulates collagen production, resulting in smoothing and contouring of trouble areas. The energy improves laxity and promotes the melting of unwanted fat cells.
How does the treatment feel like? Is it painful?
No, the treatment should not be painful. The Ultrasound-RF provides the most advanced non-surgical solution, treating your face and body parts safely, efficiently, and without pain. Most patients describe the sensation of the therapy as being comparable to that of a hot stone massage. The treatment is performed in a lying position so you can easily relax during the procedure.
What happens during treatment?
Depending on the area to be treated, we will use a treatment handpiece to pass this over the surface of your skin. You may feel a warming sensation and many patients comment that the sensation is rather like a hot stone massage.
What areas are treated with Ultrasound-RF skin tightening treatment?
Ultrasound-RF’s deep and varied penetration provides firm and younger-looking skin from the first treatment session. While Ultrasound-RF can be used to treat a wide range of areas, you can view the before and after photos shown below to see examples of some of the areas for which Ultrasound-RF can be used.
How fast will I see results?
This very much depends on the treated area, its condition and other factors. You may see visible improvements after a single session. Results will typically improve over a 3-month follow up period.
Is there any downtime?
No. You can return to your daily activities immediately following treatment. There are no side-effects and no need for a home maintenance regime.
Am I suitable for treatment?
The treatment is suitable for all skin types but we always recommend a pre-treatment consultation to discuss your outcome goals, your specific medical history and expected results.
Is it safe?
The Ultrasound-RF meets all of the most stringent safety standards and both safety and efficacy of the therapy has been tested thoroughly in many clinical studies. The special energy flow control system ensures that the correct amount of energy is safely emitted throughout the procedure and the cooling system ensures your comfort.
Is there any side effects?
The whole Ultrasound-RF procedure is non-invasive and requires no recovery time. You can easily have the treatment during your lunch break and return to your daily activities immediately.
Will I need to go on a special diet?
No. You will not be required to alter your diet or exercise regime. We encourage you to follow a healthy, active lifestyle and drinking lots of water on the day of the treatment is very important to flush away the melted fat.
