Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded.

The local heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblast in order to accelerate production of new collagen fibres and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin. 

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is great for those who have lost weight and have excess skin, people with maturing, crepey type skin and new Mums following child birth.

A course of 6 sessions delivered at 2-3 week intervals is recommended for optimal results.

Benefits

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening accelerates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres to create smoother, tighter skin.  

Gentle and Relaxing

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is a relaxing and warm treatment which can be completed in less than 1 hour. 

Non-Invasive

RF Skin Tightening is a non surgical treatment.

The local heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblast in order to accelerate production of new collagen fibres and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.

RF Skin Tightening is a relaxing treatment. Glycerine will be applied to the skin, this acts as a conductor.

A small, round handpiece will be placed onto the skin and moved in gentle circular motions.

A slight beeping noise will come from the machine, the handpiece will get warmer and warmer, building heat until it reaches 40 degrees.

RF Skin Tightening works well on

  • arms,
  • back,
  • abdomen,
  • inner and outer thighs
  • buttocks.
