When it comes to facials, believe us when we say we’ve tried them all. And while we love a bit of pampering, we love it even more when technology and tools come into play. So when we heard about MAKaesthetics and their RF (Radio Frequency) Face Lift, we knew we were onto a winner. A non-invasive form of facial contouring, the RF Face Lift is an energy-based treatment that delivers heat deep into the layers of the skin to immediately ignite collagen and elastin production, increase blood flow, and promote lymphatic drainage and toxin removal. A quick, and effective way to address everything from ageing, to dullness, skin texture and laxity, puffiness, and weakened dermis, the RF Face Lift is the easiest way to turn back the clock. Oh, and did we mention it’s painless?
