What is RF Skin Tightening?

Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening is an effective treatment for addressing skin laxity on the face and body and is commonly used for non-surgical face and body lifts such as under eye bags, neck, jowls, buttocks, décolleté firming and postnatal tummy tightening. During an RF Skin Tightening treatment the temperature in the sub dermal layers of the skin increases, causing shortening (tightening) of the collagen fibres and stimulating new collagen development. This treatment requires no downtime and results are immediately noticeable, becoming even more so in the weeks following the treatment as the build-up of collagen effects further skin contraction.

 

RF Skin Tightening may be performed as a stand alone treatment offering skin tightening results or combined with ultrasound fat cavitation to aid further fat breakdown and tighten the skin in the area where the cavitation treatment has taken place.

What does the treatment involve?

During treatment, the therapist slowly rotates the handpiece over the targeted area transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis – heating the dermis to between 39 and 45 degrees Celsius without harm to surrounding tissue. During treatment you will feel a warm-hot sensation, but it doesn’t burn or hurt – the heat bypasses the epidermis altogether.

How many treatments will I need?

This will be individually assessed. However, the key to the RF Skin Tightening treatment is repetition. For the treatment to be effective, RF Skin Tightening must be performed at least once a week during the initial treatment period – however, we recommend one or two sessions per week. After the initial course of 6 - 10 treatments, we recommend a maintenance treatment every couple of months. 

How long will the results last?

After your initial course of treatments. Results vary from client to client, dependent on their lifestyle and how they look after their skin. However, they can last 24 months or more based on the client’s natural aging process. 

Who can have this treatment?

This treatment is effective on all skin types and best results are seen by clients in their mid-30s to mid-60s who display mild to moderate facial sagging or lax skin on the face or body.

Radio Frequency treatments are not suitable for clients with a pacemaker or internal defibrillator or those who have been on Roaccutane in the last 6 months, have cystic acne, open wounds or infections in the area to be treated. Treatment is not recommended during pregnancy or while nursing.

Pre and Post Care Information

  • To ensure the body responds well to RF at least 2 litres of water should be consumed over a 24 hour period prior to the treatment. It is essential to stagger water consumption over this period to ensure your body is well hydrated.

  • A mild exfoliation scrub prior to RF will prepare your skin to get maximum results.

  • Any deep peels should be avoided a week prior to and a week following your treatment.

  • RF heats the skin to cause retraction of the collagen fibres, so it is important not to cool it immediately afterwards as the inflammation encourages results.

  • You may wear a mineral based foundation to conceal any redness.

  • An SPF 30+ should be applied immediately following your treatment and reapplied as necessary over the next 72hrs.

  • Do NOT sunbathe and avoid excessive sun exposure for two weeks before your Skin Tightening treatment and at all times during your treatment programme. 

  • To achieve optimal and long lasting results it is highly recommended you follow your therapists advice for home care between treatments.

  • Wait for any cold sores, broken skin or open wounds to fully heal before having your treatment. If you feel the tingle of a cold sore coming on, it’s important to wait for this to pass before having your treatment.

  • Cosmetic Injecting clients should leave two weeks between their last cosmetic injecting treatment and RF Skin Tightening.

When will you see results??

It is important to note that results vary from person to person, and the results that you see will depend on your body and the number of treatments you have had. Typically, our clients notice results immediately (especially the neck and face area), however best results are the first few weeks following the treatment.

How to track your process

Take pictures for comparison. When you look at your body every day, you may not notice gradual changes. Take a picture before the treatment, and once every one or two weeks after the treatment, so you can compare.
