Radiofrequency skin tightening
Radiofrequency (RF) technology is fantastic for tightening the early signs of loose or sagging skin and is ideal for patients
who want an effective treatment, that shows no sign of swelling or bruising, with slow and progressive results. It is effective
The Eyes – treating upper and lower eyelids to reduce hooding and eye bags as well as lifting of the brow line
The Face – smoothing and tightening sagging skin, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and helping define the jawline
and lip. Addresses loose jowls and “turkey neck”
The Body – helping contour loose skin, reduce chest wrinkles and smooth bulges
Unlike other skin tightening systems, our RF system doesn't require anaesthesia or skin cooling. Because the skin is not
numb, you can describe the depth of feeling to our practitioner, which helps provide the best result in the area being treated.
RF skin tightening is a proven, and FDA approved, treatment that can help tighten sagging or loose skin, naturally giving
you a dramatically smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel.
The science behind RF technology
RF treatments are all about focusing radiofrequency energy to kick start the body’s own natural renewal process.
Radiofrequency energy is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the upper layers.
As the dermis is heated, a natural reaction occurs that promotes the creation of new collagen. Overtime the newly formed
collagen plumps, smoothes and tightens the skin creating a more youthful appearance.
As we get older our collagen and elastin fibers become longer causing sagging, the heat from the radiofrequency also causes
existing collagen in your skin to contract and tighten helping to reduce wrinkles and smooth the skin.
Benefits of RF skin tightening are:
Wrinkles are minimized.
Eye bags are reduced.
Jowls are lifted.
Neck and throat contours are tightened.
Wrinkles on Décolleté/chest disappear.
Saggy arms are tightened.
Flabby thighs and tummy are contoured.
Frequently asked RF questions
Who is it for?
Needle phobic patients.
Patients who want an effective treatment that shows no sign of swelling or bruising.
Patients who want slow and progressive results.
How does it work?
Radio frequency is emitted into the lower layer of the skin using a special electrode that warms the dermis causing contraction
of the skin. Collagen producing cells are stimulated and reconstruction of collagen and elastin is initiated.
Is it sore?
No, the treatment feels like a facial hot stone treatment. It does not require any anesthetic cream.
How many treatments will I need?
This does depend on the result you want and will be discussed with you at consultation. We usually recommend an initial
course of 3-6 treatments, depending on the area being treated.
When will I see results?
Your fibroblasts will be prompted to produce more collagen naturally, each skin cycle is 6-8 weeks and with each cycle
your skin will improve up until 6 months following your treatment. To maintain the results and continue the improvement you
should have a single treatment roughly every 6 months.
