At Burwood Paramedical Beauty, our team advocates non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for skin Tightening / Skin Lifting / Wrinkle Reduction. The solutions we provide are Mono-polar RF treatment and Fractional Laser treatment customised to the individual's skin needs. Fractional Laser treatment, please [click here] for more information.
Advanced ART RF Skin Tightening
Using proprietary radio frequency emitters with Automatic Resistance Test technology, the Mono-polar RF (Radio Frequency) has two treatment modes, and an internal cooling system in the hand-piece tip cools and protects the epidermis while the heat causes blood circulation acceleration on the dermis and subcutaneous tissues, contracting fibrous tissues immediately, stimulating the continuous cycle of regeneration and reconstruction of collagen protein, reaching the effect of tightening and lifting skin.
Proven to be safe & effective
No side effect
No down time
No anaesthetic required
6 treatments in 12 weeks
This treatment works quickly with amazing results by delivering energy to the deeper layers of the skin, whilst leaving the superficial skin intact.
The face - especially around the jawline
The backs of the hands
Arms and Legs
Noticeable changes in your skin can be observed immediately after first treatment. The treatment has progressive results with continued improvement. Results may last 6 months upto 2 years after completing treatment course.
Before & After
What is it?
Radio frequency actually speaks of the technical process of the number of waves per second of the electric and magnetic fields within the radio waves portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. By feeding an alternate current (AC) or voltage through an electrode, radiofrequencies can be generated through the speed of light, thus creating radio waves. We are able to apply this RF energy to our bodies as our bodies can act like a circuit board. This allows deeper penetration into the skin for better results for skin tightening.
Mono-polar (also called Unipolar)
Mono-polar or unipolar refers to a device having one pole or electrode. With mono-polar delivery, the current from the generating machine flows through the body from a single electrode (handpiece) and meets maximum resistance in the area around the tip of the handpiece, where tissue heating in the sub-dermal layers then occurs. A grounding, or “return pad” may also be used, attached to the patient’s lower back or abdomen, to provide a low resistance path for the current to flow back to the generating machine, to complete the electrical circuit.
Bio-polar refers to a device having two poles or electrodes.
With bipolar delivery, the current from the generating machine flows only through the tissue which is between the two electrodes on the handpiece; these electrodes start and complete the electrical circuit. Hence, with bipolar delivery, no current flows through the rest of the body, so no grounding or return pad is needed.
In all cases of radiofrequency delivery types, it is the resistance to the current flow in the tissue, not the electrode that generates the heating effect.
What can it treat?
RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid thirties to fifties, with any skin colour.
It is commonly used to treat the forehead (lift brows and tightens forehead skin), under the eyes (thickens skin and tightens and lifts the upper cheek skin), cheeks (lifts slightly and diminishes enlarged pores), mid-face, jaw line (diminishes jowling and sagging along the jaw line), and the neck (tightens skin and diminishes wrinkling of the neck).
Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel tighter, with more tightening improvements appearing gradually over the months after treatment.
Results are said to last up to a couple of years, and a single initial treatment can be enough to produce results in some people, depending on skin thickness; however your practitioner will be able to determine a course of treatments specific to you and your needs.
What are the side effects or down time?
Not much down time, can be done as a lunch time procedure.
