Radio frequency skin treatments are one of my favourites as they effectively tighten skin, improve collagen production and have no downtime with zero pain factor. The only downside is the cost. While it may be too expensive to indulge in a course every year, I do think even occasional one off treatments are well worth it. I’ve tried a few now including Endymed and Fractura Firm and love both of them. But now I’ve tried Collagenwave® and I have to say it just may be my favourite.
Radio frequency has been used medically for years. It heats up the deep layers of the skin causing the collagen to tighten and promotes the production of new collagen giving the skin a more youthful appearance. Collagenwave® uses a wand which is firmly but rather pleasurably rolled round the face. This movement alone feels quite stimulating and rather like a massage and I usually end up falling asleep. The wand heats up but because it’s constantly moving it doesn’t burn. It’s great for the entire face, including round the eyes, the neck and the décolletage. At the end of the session your skin looks wonderful. However it takes a good few weeks or even months before a lasting improvement to collagen is visible in the skin. The session lasts about 45 minutes and is deeply relaxing and enjoyable.
I would do this every week for the rest of my life if I could. It really is one of the best treatments around.
There are rumours of them working on a machine that works on body parts and I will be first in line if this happens. A course of 3 -10 sessions is recommended but if that’s not possible, I would go for at least one. It’s great before a special occasion as it leaves your skin plumped up and dewy.
