Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Radio frequency (RF) skin tightening is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses radio frequency energy to heat the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. It is commonly used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Radio Frequency skin tightening can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and thighs.

During a Radio Frequency skin tightening treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver radio frequency energy to the targeted area. The energy heats the deeper layers of the skin while keeping the outer layer (epidermis) cool and protected. This controlled heating stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which helps to tighten and firm the skin over time.

The procedure is typically comfortable and requires no topical anaesthetic cream. Ultrasound gel is applied to the skin to facilitate the movement of the Radio Frequency device. The device is then moved over the treatment area, delivering the radio frequency energy. The length of the treatment session can vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated, but it usually lasts between 30 minutes to an hour. Some individuals may experience a warming or tingling sensation during the treatment, but it should not be painful.

Radio Frequency skin tightening is generally considered safe for most skin types and carries minimal risks and side effects. After the treatment, some individuals may experience mild redness, swelling, or a warm sensation in the treated area, but these effects are usually temporary and subside quickly. There is typically no downtime associated with Radio Frequency skin tightening, and most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after the procedure.

It’s important to note that while Radio Frequency skin tightening can provide noticeable improvements in skin tightness and texture, the results may vary depending on individual factors such as age, skin condition, and treatment area. Multiple treatment sessions are recommended to achieve optimal results, and maintenance treatments may be needed to prolong the benefits.

Our Radio Frequency works well alongside many other treatments, especially our IPL Skin Rejuvenation, which will also normalise the surface of the skin, reducing the sizes of pores, sun and age induced pigmentation, and vascular lesions such as thread veins.

Benefits of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

As you age, your skin produces less collagen and can begin to lose its elasticity, sagging can occur, and wrinkles form.

Typically, this starts happening between the ages of 35 to 40 as the quantity and quality of your collagen production declines.

A lot of our clients opt for Radio Frequency skin tightening to treat these signs of skin aging and sagging.

If your skin is showing its age or you want to tighten loose skin, Radio Frequency will help improve skin texture and firmness, giving you a more youthful appearance.

The effects of Radio Frequency can be a good confidence boost for clients who may be upset by loose and sagging skin, as the treatment really makes a difference.

Here are some benefits of the Radio Frequency treatment:

"I had a course of Radio Frequency Facials to improve my crinkly skin. I had been a smoker for years and was now concerned about the deep lines and sagginess around my cheeks and top lip. I was unsuitable for the HIFU facelift due to my medical condition, but Babs suggested Radio Frequency instead. The treatment feels very warm but is comfortable, and I could definitely see an improvement in the depth of my wrinkles after just a couple of sessions. I now have this treatment as my go-to facial!"
