At Harley Ultrasound, we are aware that the eyes are one of the most sensitive areas of the body when it comes to cosmetic treatments. As a result of this, we have designed the RF Eye Tightening around your safety and comfort. RF Eye Tightening involves applying radio frequency technology to the skin around the eyes, to induce the growth and repair of collagen within the skin. Therefore, our treatment can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and sagging skin without surgery.
RF Eye Tightening can rejuvenate the eye area and is a great alternative to procedures such as a surgical blepharoplasty.
How does it work?
During RF Eye Tightening, bi-polar radio frequencies are applied to the skin. This penetrates to 20mm within the skin, targeting multiple layers including the dermis. The surface of the skin acts like a resistor when it is exposed to the electrical current, which then causes it to heat up. The thermal energy induced by radio frequency technology thickens collagen fibres in the skin. Collagen is responsible for the tightening of the skin. As a result of this, the skin feels and appears firmer.
Results and Aftercare
Our RF Eye Tightening treatment at Harley Ultrasound yields beneficial results quicker than alternative treatments. You should begin to notice the results within a few days following the procedure.
You must not tan or use sunbeds for a week before the treatment, as this may increase the sensitivity of the skin. It is likely that your skin will be very tender following the RF Eye Tightening treatment. Therefore, you must make sure you take extra care of your body. Avoid hot environments such as saunas, steam rooms, and hot baths and showers for at least 72 hours after the treatment. Furthermore, our therapists recommend that you apply suncream to the area every day and avoid direct sunlight, to prevent any discomfort or irritation of the skin.
