ThermaClinic radio frequency treatment offers an effective and comfortable way to achieve facial skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. After a course of treatments you can enjoy tighter, younger looking skin with improved skin tone, texture and elasticity.

How does ThermaClinic work?

A form of energy called Radiofrequency (RF) is applied to the skin via a bipolar applicator to gently heat the skin, promoting accelerated collagen production and contraction of elastic fibres to restructure and tighten the skin.

How is the treatment carried out?
A thin layer of gel is applied to the face and an applicator delivering RF current is moved in circular motions to warm the skin. The desired skin temperature is reached quickly and then maintained for 2 to 3 minutes. Typically each treatment session lasts 30 to 45 minutes. The gel is then removed and skin is moisturised.

What should I expect after treatment?

Your skin may be pink for a short time after treatment but this will subside quickly. Normal activities can proceed immediately and no special after care is required. Immediately after treatment, the contraction of collagen fibres improves skin elasticity and the skin may appear firmer. However the benefits are progressive and the full effect is generally seen 1 to 2 months after a series of treatments.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Yes, ThermaClinic is suitable for most individuals. However, if you are pregnant or breast feeding or suffer with severe chronic liver disease or blood disorders treatment is not advised.

How does the treatment feel?
Treatment is not considered painful most people actually comment on how pleasurable and relaxing the heating sensation is! Treatment is comfortable due to the unique, multi frequency technology of ThermaClinic.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are extremely rare but can include slight, short term discomfort which is easily well tolerated. Oedema (swelling) and erythema (redness) can occur but disappears within a few hours.

How many treatments are necessary?

Generally a course of 6 to 8 treatments are recommended at weekly intervals. Consultation Procedure Prior to treatment you must undergo a consultation to. obtain details about your medical history and confirm your suitability for treatment. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form.
