Skin Tightening / Cellulite Reduction
The Skin Clinic Sevenoaks has invested in a state of the art bipolar and monopolar radiofrequency machine as part of its commitment to you to bring you all the latest in cosmetic dermatology. This machine uses radiofrequency energy to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, crepiness, loose skin and cellulite. Radiofrequency is safe and non invasive and can result in significant improvement of loose or lax skin around the forehead, cheeks, mouth, jaw line and jowls as well as other areas of the body.
Radiofrequency treatments are becoming increasingly popular in the world of non-surgical aesthetics. Treatments can be used on the abdomen, on the thighs and on the arms to help reduce cellulite and break down fat which is then drained by the lymphatic system. These treatments represent an exciting and dynamic new direction in the world of medical aesthetics and The Skin Clinic Sevenoaks is excited to be involved in this cutting edge cosmetic dermatology.
Radiofrequency energy is absorbed by the water molecules deep in the dermis of the skin and this is transferred into heat energy. The dermis of the skin is heated by the radiofrequency causing contraction of collagen fibres which acts to lift and tighten the skin. The heat energy also stimulates new collagen production in the skin which can become evident 6 weeks after treatment and can last up to 2 years. Radiofrequency also improves lymphatic drainage and helps improve blood flow. Monopolar radiofrequency can be used to help break down fatty deposits deep in the skin which can help smooth out the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite, an increasingly popular treatment. Radiofrequency can be used for skin tightening and rejuvenation as well as improving skin pores, eye bags, reducing puffiness and for cellulite virtually anywhere on the body. All of these treatments are unisex. Radiofrequency skin tightening and rejuvenation is a very popular anti-aging treatment. It is known as the ‘non surgical facelift’. The Skin Clinic Sevenoaks is excited to be one of the few clinics offering these treatments.
For the best results radiofrequency treatments should be undertaken as a course of treatments. Most people will notice an improvement after 6 treatments and will see visible changes in their skin. The skin will feel tighter, smoother and more plump giving it a more youthful and fresher appearance.
Radiofrequency is suitable for all skin types however a full medical consultation will be necessary before embarking on this treatment. The treatments are contraindicated in individuals who have pacemakers or any heart conditions and for those who have metal pins or plates in situ. Your clinician can advise you further and assess your appropriateness for treatment.
Dr Ward always gets it just right with my treatments and ensures that they look subtle and natural, just the way i like. I started on the Obagi skin care programme and since then there has been no looking back.. Obagi is the best kept secret in anti-ageing!![Jennifer, Kent ]
I often model on Dr Jo’s Botox and fillers course and its great to see her pass on her knowledge and enthusiasm to other professionals. She is clearly highly respected in this industry but what is wonderful is that she hasnt lost that lovely personal and warm touch. This is what sets her apart..Its always a pleasure to be involved”[Kate, Surrey ]
Dr Ward was the first person to really take my son’s acne seriously.. it was like a breath of fresh air..Thank you for listening and for understanding how acne can affect so much in a young person’s life. I highly recommend Doctor Jo Ward to anyone who has struggled in silence with a skin problem”[Jane, Surrey ]
I first met Dr Ward in her Harley Street clinic. Since then I have followed her to every clinic she has ever worked in!! Such is my faith in her… When you find a reliable and excellent cosmetic physician, travelling a few extra miles is worth it..”[Alex, London ]
The new Skin Clinic in Sevenoaks is wonderful. I have no doubt Dr Ward will soon have a queue at her clinic door..Not only is she the best injector in town but she is so warm and so passionate about what she does its infectious.. I leave every consultation with a renewed interest in my skin”[Rose, Kent ]
