ABOUT THIS TREATMENT
WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER COCOON SAFYRE RADIO FREQUENCY TREATMENT -
Our state of the art Safyre technology uses radio frequency to achieve unbeatable, visible facial rejuvenation and body contouring results in just one machine.
The Safyre carries a CE medical certification and is clinically proven.
Safyre has been designed to offer facial and body treatments with the monopolar, bipolar and multi-polar probes, allowing us to target different depths and different tissues. These probes are used to transfer radio frequency into the skin.
WHAT IS RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) -
RF is currently the number one non-invasive technology to treat all kinds of issues, from stubborn areas of excess fat to fine lines, wrinkles, and lax skin.
RF is an electromagnetic wave that penetrates the skin. The current pushed into the skin, creates friction in the dermal layer of the skin which causes heat. Focused thermal energy at 42⁰C releases “heat shock” proteins in the skin and disrupts collagen fibers.
The result is an inflammatory response in the dermis. The natural healing process induces fibroblasts to produce new collagen fibers and elastin.
This effectively produces an immediate tightening effect on the skin with short to medium term results. In summary and simply put - Radio Frequency causes controlled damage that produces collagen, thereby jump-starting skin rejuvenation and tightening.
With no down time, our Safyre provides convenient, affordable, head to toe non-invasive solutions to support anti-aging, tightening, toning and firming the skin, softening wrinkles and reducing cellulite and overall rejuvenates the skin, preserving its youthful appearance.

WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED -

WHO CAN DO THIS TREATMENT AND IS IT SAFE -
All skin types can be treated. You should be healthy with objective expectations appropriate for your age.
The application of radio frequency to the skin is not harmful or unhealthy if managed within the treatment protocols.
The heat generated by the radio frequency is a controlled injury which stimulates the body’s natural healing process.
This treatment is not a method for losing body weight but complements the reduction of cellulite and localized accumulations of fat when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise plan.
A consultation session of approximately 30 minutes, is required upfront where a comprehensive assessment will be done to determine whether you can proceed with treatments.
During this session, expectations and possible contraindications will be discussed, and a plan formulated in accordance to your needs.
It’s important to note that this treatment is not indicated for clients with a BMI of 30 plus.
If you are pregnant or carry a pacemaker, you can also not perform this treatment.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST -

The healthier you are, the slower your collagen degenerates. Our bodies have the ability to return to their “normal” state, therefore for optimal and long-lasting results, a maintenance program is necessary.
It is recommended to have a phased maintenance plan and a minimum of 4 maintenance sessions in the first 3 months after completing the treatment course:
Month 1 after treatments: 2 x maintenance treatments (1 treatment every 2 weeks)
Month 2 after treatments: 1 x maintenance treatments (1 treatment per month)
Month 3 after treatments: 1 x maintenance treatments (1 treatment per month)
Thereafter 1 x maintenance treatment every 3 months or as and when necessary
