RF microneedling


It has been well documented that radiofrequency (RF) microneedling helps to generate new collagen and has a superior effect on skin elasticity for a smoother, firmer and more toned skin. At Tempus Belgravia, we go one step further and combine RF with a deeply effective skin tightening technology called High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). This treatment is called Focus Dual®, and it is manufactured by one of the leading aesthetic device companies in the world, Lynton Lasers.

Am I suitable for RF micro-needling with HIFU using Focus Dual® at Tempus Belgravia?

Before any treatment can be carried out, here at Tempus Belgravia, we will ask that you attend a no obligation consultation with one of our medical practitioners. It is at this meeting that you can discuss your skin concerns and your expectations for results. We will also ask you to disclose your medical history, so we can ensure that it will be safe for you to undergo the Focus Dual®. Once both you and your practitioner are sure that the treatment will be suitable for your needs and indeed, safe for you to undergo, you may book your appointment for the treatment.

What happens during an RF micro-needling treatment with HIFU using Focus Dual® at Tempus Belgravia?

A topical anaesthetic will be applied to your skin, around 30 minutes before the treatment begins, to negate any discomfort. Once your skin is numb, your practitioner will pass the device over the treatment area/s, making tiny wounds with the needles. The tips of these needles release RF and HIFU technology in to the skin, to heat the skin at all skin levels. This creates an intensive wound healing effect, to encourage the production of new collagen, elastin and capillaries. The procedure takes around 30 minutes, depending on the area/s to be treated. You may experience some redness, tenderness and swelling after the treatment, but there is no clinical downtime and you can return to your daily activities immediately.

How will I look after an RF micro-needling treatment with HIFU using Focus Dual®?

The side-effects after this treatment are mild and there is no clinical reason you cannot return to your daily activities afterwards. You may however, experience some slight pinpoint bleeding and slight bruising. Typically, expect to have slightly red skin for approximately 24 hours after your RF microneedling treatment. You may also experience some discomfort in the deeper layers of your skin for 24 to 48 hours after the treatment, but this can be eased with the use of mild painkillers.

When will I see the results from my Focus Dual® treatment?

You may see some results after 3 to 4 weeks of your initial Focus Dual® session. However, most patients report seeing more visible improvements after around 6 to 8 weeks. After your second treatment, you should start to see more significant improvements and optimal results can be seen around 3 to 6 months after the treatment series has been completed. The number of treatments you will most likely need for unique skin concerns will be discussed in your no obligation consultation.

How long do the results last after a course of Focus Dual® treatments at Tempus Belgravia?

After your first course of Focus Dual® treatments, expect results to last approximately 12 to 24 months. Then you may need to have seasonal top up treatments to maintain these results. The result longevity can be affected by many factors, from your skin type, your lifestyle to environmental factors such as excessive sunlight or pollution. The expected results will be discussed in your no obligation consultation, prior to your treatment, here at Tempus Belgravia.
