Lift the skin around your neck, chin and cheeks safely and comfortably with the latest innovative radio frequency (RF) technology.  Collagen in the tissue is heated and stimulated to create an immediate visible contraction and lifting effect, followed by remodeling with new and accelerated collagen production in the deeper layers over time.

RF skin tightening treatments are extremely effective for those patients seeking an immediate lift. The RF energy penetrates the skin and impacts the collagen-rich dermal tissue directly, the vibrational waves induce the production of new elastin and collagen without damaging healthy tissues. As a result, it regenerates and tightens the skin.

Is RF skin tightening safe?

Yes Radio frequency is completely safe, with earlier types of RF technology either penetrating too deeply or overheating caused concern however, conversely, our technology causes no side-effects, other than a little temporary warmth likened to one someone who has been in the wind or the sun for the day.

What are the side effects?

RF Skin Tightening is painless, mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand-piece felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable. During the procedure, the clients remain comfortable and can resume back to work immediately after.

How many treatments will I need?

We usually recommend 8 treatments 1 session per week to achieve long-lasting smooth and healthy skin.

How long is a treatment?

The length of procedures varies depending on the targeted area and the number of areas being treated. Our clinicians are dedicated to bringing you the very best results, so once we have understood your needs we will help put together a plan tailored to you.

Is there any downtime?

This treatment is a non-surgical procedure without the need for anaesthesia. There is no downtime following the treatment. With no restrictions or limitations imposed, clients are free to resume their lives immediately after the treatment.

When will I see results?

You will notice an instant boost immediately after just one treatment but as with all our skin treatments we recommend a course of at least 8 treatments to obtain optimum results.  It should be noted that each person will react slightly differently to the treatment some individuals may reach their desired outcome after 8 treatments, others may need a course of 12 treatments.
