Non-Invasive Radio Frequency for Skin Tightening
Radio Frequency is a non-invasive treatment which uses radio waves directed through a probe head which is rested onto the skin. The radio waves are directed at the skin to produce a thermal effect. Radio frequency treatment has been used for many decades for a variety of medical applications.
RF Skin Tightening targets the deeper layers of skin by transferring thermal energry into directed areas. RF energy causes water molecules in the deeper layers of skin to vibrate creating friction which causes the heating effect. When heat is applied to collagen fibres, they shrink and tighten up resulting in stimulation of the skin and in particular, promoting collagen production, a substance which gives elasticity to the skin.
The treatment can be used on any part of the body to tighten any loose and sagging skin. It is also suitable for any age group. After treatment the skin contours more to the body as it has tightened up and it will also become rejuvenated, being younger and fresher in appearance. It is effectively used on areas of the face and neck, the breasts and tummy, and upper arms and thighs. But it can be used on any part of the body that requires the skin to be firmed.
It is the safest and most risk free treatment for the body because the ageing process sees a reduction in the amount of collogen being produced, RF acts as a wake up call for these cells that go into hibernation.
For optimal results it is important that 4 to 6 treatments are delivered on a bi-monthly basis. This is recommended for most clients depending on their desired results and treatment area.
It is important to understand that results take time. They can be seen in as little as 2-4 weeks, and these time frames may vary considerably depending on each individual.
Results are effected by a number of factors, diet and exercise play an important part in the health and well being of a patient and in the maintenance of their body shape. Results will also vary purely based on the general make up of each patient, family history and skin type.

This treatment can be coupled with cryolipolysis (fat freezing), Ultra Therapy (HIFU), High Frequency Vacuum and cavitation to get the best complete results. We call this our 4D Lipo Med.
Summary of Your Treatment
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Overview
The effects of radio frequency treatments are mostly attributable to the heat that is generated by the RF waves. In the field of skin care and ant-ageing treatments, RF waves are most commonly used for facial rejuvenation and their ability to stimulate the protein fibers that keep the skin elastic. During treatment, the RF waves penetrate the skin to tighten it from the inside out, as they stimulate collagen fibroblast production, which will trigger the production of fresh collagen fibers which result in tighter, more taught skin which is demonstrably younger.
What to Expect During an RF Skin Tightening Treatment?
Our practitioners will require you wash your face with a mild soap and warm water before you arrive for your treatment, as it is important that no excess oils or cosmetics remain on the skin that might reduce the effectiveness of the procedure. When treatment begins, a numbing cream may be applied to the skin and then allowed to sit until it takes effect. It will then be removed, and the skin care specialist will target the treatment area by focusing on parts of the area at a time so that the treatment is focused and that no other skin is accidentally affected.
A ultrasonic gel will then be applied to the skin before the RF waves are delivered to the skin. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, you may feel a heated sensation during treatment, but the side effects of the treatment are believed to be minimal for most patients. When the treatment is over, our practitioner will apply a topical cooling gel to the treated area to minimize discomfort.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Side Effects
You may experience some redness and swelling in the treated area after a radio frequency skin tightening procedure, but these symptoms should resolve themselves within 24-48 hours. Misting the face with cool water may help to reduce the irritation, although you should ensure that only clean, purified water is used for these purposes. Some patients have reported sinking of the skin in the treated area, but this has mostly occurred with intense RF treatments. In most cases, these treatments have a low instance of side effects and are considered a viable anti-ageing treatment for a wide array of skin types.
Who is it suitable for?
Anyone, male or female, who wishes to remove wrinkles and lines from the facial area. The radio frequency facial is suitable for all skin types.
How Many Treatments of Are Recommended?
2 to 6 treatments delivered on a bi-weekly basis is recommended for most clients depending on desired results and skin area. It is important to book in for a complimentary consultation to get the correct assessment of the area you want to have treated.
What Results Can I Expect from RF Treatment?
Results are often immediate; however, a course of treatments are recommended as results improve after each treatment.
What Will I Experience from This Treatment?
RF is a relaxing treatment with little or no discomfort. Ultrasonic gel will be applied to the skin which acts as a conductor for the RF energy. A hand piece will be placed onto the skin and moved in circular motions. Our machinery will emit a slight beeping noise as the hand piece gets warmer, building slowly until it reaches 40 degrees. Periodically your therapist will use an infrared thermometer to measure the heat of the skin. Once the temperature has built to 40 degrees your therapist will continue to maintain the heat, continuing treatment on the area for 2 to 4 minutes.
