Radio frequency skin tightening (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate muscles and subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin. The process provides a real and safe alternative to a facelift and other cosmetic surgeries.
An RF Facial is often referred to as the non surgical facelift. It can be used to treat sagging, discolouring, fine lines and wrinkles helping to combat fatigue, dullness and aging. These treatments are one of the most effective non-surgical options today, and the result is a tighter, brighter complexion and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles.
Areas that are commonly treated include:
- Jaw line & jowls
- Mid face
- Forehead (lifts brows)
- Under Eyes (lifts upper cheek)
RF Facials do not hurt and it is not an invasive procedure. No downtime is required although you may experience some redness or swelling for up to 24 hours. You can see results immediately and although this will vary from client to client, they can last up to 24 months or more depending on the client's natural aging process.
For best results a course of treatments is recommended over 6-8 weeks. We will advise you on how many treatments would be needed to achieve the result you are looking for. Each treatment lasts on average 60 minutes.
Before RF Facials, you should avoid sun exposure from either natural sun or sun beds for 2 weeks before and after treatment. You should also follow home skin care advice that we will provide for you in the clinic to ensure long lasting results.
Anyone fitted with electrical devices such as a pacemaker, heart valve, metal implant or joints should not have these procedures as the RF current may interfere with their function.
