Skin Tightening

Loose skin can be detrimental to our self confidence. Skin Tightening techniques used here at Totally Transformed are designed to lift and firm skin without the need for invasive surgical options.

Our skin tightening treatments include Radio Frequency Skin Tightening and Vacuum Targeted Radio Frequency Skin Tightening and Lifting.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this technology work?

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.

Which areas can be treated with RF Skin Tightening?

RF Skin Tightening works well on arms, abdomen, legs and buttocks. 

How many treatments are recommended?

A course of treatment is typically advised to achieve maximum results this is usually 6 treatments, one treatment every 2-3 weeks.

What results can I expect from this treatment?

Results can be seen as soon as after your first treatment, however a course of treatments are recommended as results are further improved after each treatment.

What will I experience during this treatment?

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.

Vacuum Targeted Radio Frequency Skin Tightening / Lifting

Vacuum Targeted Radio Frequency delivers RF energy to the dermal tissues, breaking down old, damaged collagen, triggering instant tightening of collagen fibres and promoting growth of fresh healthy collagen. Whilst at the same time vacuum lifting and massage provides manipulation of the dermal tissues to promote lymphatic drainage and further smoothing and lifting of the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this technology work?

Skin tightening and lifting using vacuum RF uses radio frequency energy and vacuum lifting to painlessly and safely penetrate the skin layers, the heat generated from this contracts collagen fibres and encourages collagen and elastin production. This results in smoother,  firmer, healthier looking skin.

Which areas can be treated with Vacuum RF Skin Tightening/Lifting?

Effectively targets problem areas such as the stomach, thighs, bottom and arms.

How many treatments are recommended?

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

What results can I expect from this treatment?

Results can be seen from the very first treatment although a course of 6 – 12 is recommended for optimal results.

What will I experience during this treatment?

During the treatment a handheld device delivering radio frequency energy will be passed over the treatment area several times. Patients may feel some heat and a slight pulling sensation during treatments but the majority of patients consistently report a painless and comfortable experience.
