Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening is a non-surgical, clinically proven method of tightening and toning loose, sagging or ageing skin with Radio Frequency Energy. Heating the skin with RF energy stimulates the production of new collagen. New collagen means plumper, firmer skin with greater levels of elasticity.

The most common treatment areas include abdomen/stomach, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, jawline and neck, under eye bags and hips.

Frequently Asked Questions

RF works by generating heat and applying it to the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. The heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibres and stimulates production of new collagen. Collagen contractions tighten the skin to reveal a lifted, tighter and more youthful appearance. RF also improves the blood and lymphatic flow. This helps induce a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to further reduce the signs and effects of ageing.

RF Skin Tightening has been described by patients as having a temporary heat feeling similar to hot-rock therapy, or like a warm massage, at the location being treated. The heat leaves the area almost immediately after the handpiece is removed and any redness that may have appeared will clear up within minutes and be completely gone within an hour or so.
RF treatments are comfortable, non-invasive and do not require any down time.

This treatment is suitable for those concerned with firming the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also be used as a preventative treatment for skin that is starting to show the signs of ageing.

While it is expected to have a 40% to 50% improvement in the treated area after a completed series of weekly treatments, it is impossible to guarantee results. Weekly treatments present the best outcome in most individuals.

When it comes to the tightening and lifting effect of RF, it can produce instant results. You will notice immediate improvements to your skin tone that will get better with each session. The collagen remodelling aspect of RF takes a little more time and you will reach full benefits of the collagen stimulation around 3 months after treatment.

During your consultation, we will discuss the expected number of sessions required based on your specific requirements. For the best possible results, it is typically recommended to commit to 6 – 10 sessions spaced at one week intervals.

Now you can enjoy a new found self-confidence with lifted, rejuvenated and more youthful skin without pain, hassle and extravagant costs of surgery! Best of all, there is no downtime required for this treatment. Following your session, you are free to get on with your day as usual.

We would not recommend RF Skin Tightening for women who are pregnant and/or breastfeeding as it has not been proven to be safe.
