Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening

After a course of treatments you can enjoy tighter, firmer and younger looking skin with improved skin tone, texture and elasticity.  Our Radiofrequency tightening treatment kick starts collagen and firms facial contours.  Fine lines disappear and deeply etched lines are noticeably softened.  The system has been designed by dermatologists and proven to be highly effective for hundreds of people.

 Add in a course of Microdermabrasion or L.A Peels for the ultimate anti-ageing skin solution.

Common Questions

How is treatment carried out?

A thin layer of contact lotion is applied to the face and an applicator delivering RF current is moved in circular motions to warm the skin.  The desired skin temperature is reached quickly and then maintained for 2 to 3 minutes.  Typically each treatment session lasts 30 to 45 minutes.  The lotion is then removed and a cooling gel applied.

The heat produced by the Radiofrequency system contracts collagen fibres to produce instant skin tightening.  With multiple treatments, collagen production increases to tighten and rejuvenate the skin in the treated area.

Experiencing Skin Tightening?

Treatment is not considered painful, most people actually comment on how pleasurable and relaxing the heating sensation is due to the multi-frequency technology of Radiofrequency.

How many treatments are recommended?

Generally a course of 6 to 8 treatments is recommended at weekly intervals.  After a course of treatments results are expected to last 1 to 2 years.

Is there a recovery period?

Side effects are extremely rare but can include slight, short term discomfort which is easily tolerated.  Oedema (swelling) and erythema (redness) can occur, but will disappear within a few hours.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Radiofrequency is suitable for most individuals.  However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding treatment is not advisable.
