Thermage Facelift

Fractional Radio - Frequency (Omni Facelift Thermage, RF)

The London Cosmetic Clinic, Knightsbridge, offers Fractional RF/ Thermarge to accelerate collagen rebuild and skin tissue remodelling by our expert Dermatologist, Dr Johnson.

Omni Facelift Thermage (Fractional RF) is the latest technology of Radio-Frequency that perfectly combine Bi -polar RF and fractional sub-ablation. The RF energy is transferred into deep part of skin and heat is generated. The result is an instant skin contraction, stimulating the excretion and production of body’s new natural collagen, causing a rebuilding and renewal of the skin. RF also improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage, thereby providing a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to reduce the further effects of aging.

Meanwhile, a tip built of arrays of small pins and return electrodes to create micro thermal zone heating in superficial area of skin is developed (fractional sub-ablation). Undamaged tissue between pins acted as a “healing server” to accelerate collagen rebuild and skin tissue remodelling.
