Our system uses two powerful technologies at the same time to give the best treatment results. Skin tightening & rejuvenation treatment is performed using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Radio Frequency (RF) which are both used to create some outstanding improvements;
Skin tightening heats and increases collagen production and therefore gives a lifted and tighter skin. Ideally, we treat the sides of your face to tighten the skin and overcome the effects of gravity. Skin rejuvenation or skin tightening combination treatments are the ultimate procedures for improved texture, whilst also lifting and smoothing the skin.
Radio frequency skin tightening (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate sub-dermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin.
At Qutis we use the Syneron patented elos™ (electro-optical synergy) technology — the combined energy technology that uses bipolar radio frequency and light energies. The technique induces tissue remodelling and production of new collagen and elastin.
During this procedure, targeted radio frequencies are used to heat beneath your skin, breaking down depleted collagen and creating a firmer, more youthful look. The radio frequency treatment will tighten your skin and reduce some of the signs of ageing, such as wrinkles.
Collagen is produced by the body, as a response to treatment, over three or four weeks, resulting in a younger-looking, dewy, plumped skin surface.
Changes are often seen immediately in the skin although the full results normally take three to four weeks. Initially, the pigment darkens and then lightens over 7-10 days, red veins become brighter then diminish or disappear completely and are gradually reabsorbed naturally by the body’s immune system.
Radio Frequency is for anybody who wishes to combat the signs of ageing, acne scarring, excess skin, cellulite or stretch marks without the downtime, discomfort or expense of cosmetic surgery.
At Qutis, we offer two types of skin resurfacing with associated tightening. We use radio frequency (RF) in the form of a "Syneron eMatrix" device and we use an "erbium YAG laser" from a "Lynton 3Juve" System. Both these systems are available at different clinics and any of our reception team can help you with booking an appointment.
Treatment may not possible if you have recent sun exposure or if you are taking light sensitive drugs or have a pacemaker. A full consultation is carried out before treatment to ensure you are suitable. For the best results, a minimum of three treatments are recommended, and some customers have up to five with an excellent outcome.
After the treatment, the skin may feel tight and warm with mild redness. We will advise you to use our topical skin protocol following your treatment and effects normally subside within 36 hours.
The answer is ‘yes’, monthly treatment for 12 months will really smooth out acne scars and even help stretch marks!
Treatment cost will vary depending on your consultation, the areas to be treated and the length of your appointment. All our treatments start with a one to one consultation with your nurse practitioner to understand your requirements. In some cases, you may find an alternative treatment that may suit you better. We have a booklet with a guide to prices which you may download below.
Treatment Finance options are under review and may be available, please ask in your consultation for more details.
