How does the Lynton ProMax Lipo work on the face ?
ProMax utilises safe and effective Radio Frequency technology. The radiofrequency energy is applied to the skin causing gentle heating which creates thermal energy within facial dermal tissues for instant tightening and lifting. This stimulates a process often referred to as ‘wound healing’. The heat is recognised by the brain which then signals cells in the deeper layers of your skin to produce collagen and elastin. Over time the collagen and elastin grows and your skin will start to tighten, look fresher and smoother. The combination of vacuum suction at the stage with radio frequency improves circulation and helps to remove toxins for a brighter complexion. ProMax is particularly effective on fine lines, lower face, neck, slackness and just over all skin tightening.
What should I expect after treatment?
The treated area may be pink for a short time after treatment, but this will subside quickly within 1-2 hours for most. Immediately after treatment, contraction of the skin will often occur and the skin should appear fresher and a little tighter so you will see the potential permanent lift. The true results show around 6 months after a course once the collagen and elastin has grown. Generally a course of 6 to 8 treatments are recommended at 2-3 weekly intervals. After a course of treatments results are expected to last 1 to 2 years however we do recommend maintenance sessions around once every 1-3 months.
Individual & Combination Treatments
A single treatment may be booked for a special occasion or event or combined with Hydrafacial treatment for a Hydratite Treatment procedure. This is one of our most popular combination treatments and with no downtime you can have your skin completely rejuvenated, tightened and lifted with our Radio Frequency Treatment.
Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation during which details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm your suitability. Before proceeding with treatment you will also be asked to complete a consent form. How many treatments are necessary?
How is the treatment carried out? A thin layer of contact lotion is applied to the area and an applicator delivering RF current is moved in a circular motion which causes heating in the skin. The desired skin temperature is reached quickly and then maintained for 3 to 4 minutes. Typically each treatment session lasts 45 to 60 minutes. The contact lotion is then removed and a serum and SPF are applied.
What does the treatment feel like?
Treatment is not considered painful, most people actually comment on how pleasurable and relaxing the heating sensation is due to the multi-frequency technology of ProMax
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare but can include redness of the area for 1-2 days and possible slight swelling. Most people have no problems and find they can go straight back to work and their normal day to day activities straight away with no downtime.
What areas can be treated?
ProMax is particularly effective on fine lines, lower face slackness and overall skin tightening. Some clients will have their main area of concern treated such as the eyes, around the mouth or jawline, whilst most customers have full face and neck treatments to maximise results.
