Radiofrequency is a popular method for the non-surgical and painless tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin. Radiofrequency is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and the neck. It is ideal for both men & women in their mid thirties to fifties, who don't want to undergo a surgical face lift.

How Radiofrequency (RF) works?

RF uses electrical energy to heat the deep layers of the skin, whilst protecting the outer layer. Heating in this area, without damaging the outer layers of skin, causes microscopic changes to the tissues and collagen contraction, with subsequent collagen remodelling over the months that pass. Treatments are comfortable, have no healing time and give immediate results. You are able to resume all your usual activities straight after. A series of treatments is usually required for optimal results.

How safe is Radiofrequency (RF) for skin tightening?

RF technology has been used in medicine (surgery) for over 30 years for haemostasis (blood coagulation) and tissue ablation (electrosurgery). More recently it has been applied as a means of shrinking lax connective tissues through collagen denaturation. RF is a clinically proven and safe treatment technology. There are rarely any side effects, but some patients may experience a mild redness that subsides 1-2 hours after the treatment.

How many Radiofrequency (RF) treatments will I need?

It is recommended to have a session every 1-3 weeks with an average of 3 to 6 sessions in a treatment program. Our highly trained and experienced therapists will be able to determine a course of treatments specific to your needs.

How long does each treatment session last?

Each treatment session is about 60 minutes for the face and neck. This includes 30-45 minutes of the Radiofrequency treatment, followed by a mask for hydration and nourishment.
