Similar to Ultrasound Cavitation, we use a combination of Ultrasound and Radio Frequency to help reduce unwanted double chins and excess skin.
The Ultrasound destroys fat cells by using low frequency sound waves. Once the fat cell is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body while glycerol is used as energy. We then use Radio Frequency Tightening to target the deeper layers of skin, heating them up. This creates stimulation of the skin and in particular, the collagen, a substance, which gives elasticity to the skin.
This causes water molecules in the deeper layers of skin to vibrate. This creates friction, which causes the heating effect. When heat is applied to collagen fibres, they shrink and tighten up, and over time following the treatment, new collagen also forms. Whilst the deeper skin layers are being heated, the therapist will cool down the top layers of skin using a cooling gel.
It is also suitable for any age group. After your treatment the skin will contours more to the chin as it has tightened up and it will also become rejuvenated, being younger and fresher in appearance.
