Radio Frequency Skin Tightening | RF Lifting

A revolutionary treatment that visibly tightens your skin and reduces the signs of ageing.

Radiofrequency skin tightening is a non-invasive treatment which is used to boost the performance of collagen and elastin cells to give healthy, smooth and youthful skin. It is a non-surgical treatment used to firm the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Radio Frequency Treatment has been used for many decades for a variety of medical applications. It is also very effective as a preventative measure for those who are experiencing the first signs of aging.

What does RF do?

  • Tissue Retraction: The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibers, to immediately tighten the skin.
  • New collagen formation: By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated.
  • Improved circulation: RF will also improve the blood and lymphatic flow. This helps with a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to further reduce the effects of ageing.

Important Information:

Radio Frequency 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 heating effect. The energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extracellular matrix where the collagen fibers are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of collagen fibers, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts thereby accelerating the production of new collagen and elastin fibers.

Skin Tightening targets the deeper layers of skin, heating them up. This creates stimulation of the skin and in particular, the collagen, a substance which gives elasticity to the skin. This causes water molecules in the deeper layers of skin to vibrate. This creates friction which causes the heating effect. When heat is applied to collagen fibres, they shrink and tighten up, and over time fol

People who have loose, wrinkled and saggy skins are the best to consider using radiofrequency treatments. Unlike plastic surgery and facelift procedures which are likely to affect you later, radiofrequency is safe and is not associated with any side-effects whatsoever.

On the other hand, pregnant women or those people prone to skin infections and allergies should avoid using radiofrequency as a form of skin treatment.

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 an appropriate treatment for the face because the aging process sees a reduction in the amount of fat, particularly on the cheeks. Instead of plumping out the tissues (the outcome of filler treatments), it simply aims to tighten up the sagging skin in areas such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and jowls.
