About the treatment

Thermolux Skin Tightening utilises RF energy to treat skin laxity by creating a controlled trauma, to stimulate the turnover of collagen and elastin synthesis

How does it work?
During treatment, the therapist slowly rotates the handpiece over the targeted area transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis – heating the dermis to between 39 and 45 degrees Celsius without harm to surrounding tissue. During treatment you will feel a warm-hot sensation, but it doesn’t burn or hurt – the heat bypasses the epidermis altogether.
How long will the results last?
Results vary from client to client. They can last 24 months or more based on the client’s natural aging process.
Treatment preparation
To ensure the body responds well to RF at least 2 litres of water should be consumed over a 24 hour period prior to the treatment. It is essential to stagger water consumption over this period to ensure your body is well hydrated. A mild exfoliation scrub prior to RF will prepare your skin to get maximum results.
Who can have this treatment?
This treatment is effective on both light and dark skin, and best results are seen by clients in their mid-30s to mid-60s who display mild to moderate facial sagging or lax skin on the face or body. Radio Frequency treatments are not suitable for clients with a pacemaker or internal defibrillator or those who have been on Roaccutane in the last 6 months, have cystic acne, open wounds or infections in the area to be treated. Treatment is not recommended during pregnancy or while nursing.
Post-treatment care
Any deep peels should be avoided a week prior to and a week following your treatment. RF heats the skin to cause retraction of the collagen fibres, so it is important not to cool it immediately afterwards as the inflammation encourages results. You may wear a mineral based foundation to conceal any redness. An SPF 30+ should be applied immediately following your treatment and reapplied as necessary over the next 72hrs. To achieve optimal and long lasting results, it is highly recommended that you follow your therapists advice for home care between treatments. After treatment you may experience slight redness on the treatment area for up to an hour after the treatment however HIFU is a non-invasive procedure and there is no downtime. You are able to return to normal activities immediately. A small percentage of client’s experience mild tenderness, swelling or muscle soreness in the treatment area for hours to days post treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
This will be individually assessed during your consultation. Typically to achieve maximum results, a course of 6-10 treatments are recommended spaced at one to four weeks apart, then annual maintenance treatment to maintain results.
