Lip fillers, Botox and other ‘surgical-type’ facial augmentations are becoming more and more popular! Fashion and beauty trends are rapidly evolving and as these treatments are becoming more affordable, they’re no longer reserved for the rich and famous but being advertised in normal salons up and down the country.
However, less well known are the equally as affordable, non-surgical alternatives to fillers and botox type treatments. Alternatives which encourage your body to produce more of its own collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin, the things your body uses naturally to smooth out fine lines, plump up skin and give lips their full appearance.
RF Lip Plumping
Quick, painless and needle free, our radio frequency lip plumping treatment rejuvenates the appearance of your lips by encouraging the shedding of dead skin cells on the lips as well as stimulating any live cells to encourage them to tighten and plump up. RF also stimulates the fibroblast cells which creates new collagen to create a fuller pout.
A course of 6 x 15-minute treatments is recommended delivered at fortnightly intervals. Results (much like injectable lip fillers) can last up to 2 years with top up treatments being delivered after around 9 months.
Unlike injectables, this treatment is painless! Clients report a warm sensation and tingling towards the end of the treatment as the fibroblasts begin the collagen production.
RF Face Lifts
The popularity of Radio Frequency facials is increasing. Even Jennifer Aniston credits them for keeping her skin lifted! Our fabulous machine uses heat to stimulate the collagen production in your skin. It’s a pleasant experience with clients comparing the treatment to a hot stone massage for their face. RF Facelifts are great for smoothing out the appearance of the skin, softening fine lines, lifting up the cheeks and tightening the jawline. Again, unlike injectables, there is no pain involved in this treatment.
We recommend this treatment is completed over a course of 6 treatments at weekly intervals for best results.
HIFU Face Lifts
HIFU or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a newer cosmetic treatment which uses intense ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, resulting in firmer skin. Clinical trials have found HIFU to be a safe and effective treatment for facial lifting and wrinkle smoothing. Unlike other facial rejuvenation techniques used at Totally Transformed, Newcastle, only one treatment is required per face area and the full results are visible from around 3 months post treatment. Results are long lasting, and a top up treatment can be carried out after 12-18 months.
Clients report a mild tingling sensation throughout this treatment. When choosing a clinic to have HIFU performed, it is incredibly important to ensure that the clinician carrying out the treatment is completely trained in HIFU treatments for the face. Poorly trained or untrained clinicians can cause irreparable damage to the face using focused ultrasound energy in such high intensity. At Totally Transformed, we are highly trained and specialised in what we do. We refresh our training regularly and will continue to ensure that each and every client receiving a HIFU face lift here with us, is safe at all times.
Choosing the best non-invasive, non-surgical facial lifting treatment can be confusing. As we mentioned, we are highly specialised and trained to be able to recommend the ideal treatment for each and every client who comes to us. During these unprecedented times, we are offering free online video consultations to ensure that clients can be ready to start their journey to the best version of themselves as soon as we are given the green light to reopen again.
