Skin Tightening - Radiofrequency
Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment is technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin; ideal for those people who either don’t want, or don’t believe they are old enough to have a surgical procedure.
Pure RF energy is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid 30s to 60s, with any skin colour. It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck.radiofrequency
Based on current RF technologies, most people should see improvement in their skin tightness, with minimal risks and downtime compared to surgery.
RF skin tightening is a treatment that can help tighten sagging or loose skin, naturally giving you a dramatically smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel.
As we get older our collagen and elastin fibers become longer causing sagging, the heat from the radiofrequency causes existing collagen in your skin to contract and tighten helping to reduce wrinkles and smooth the skin.

Frequently asked RF questions
Who is it for?
Needle phobic patients or who want an effective treatment that shows no sign of swelling or bruising. Or for who want slow and progressive results.
How does it work?
Radiofrequency 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 the treatment is pain free.
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 4 treatments.
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, after your first treatment course.
