Skin tightening treatments.
Everything you need to know.
There are several approaches to improving the elasticity of your skin. The most common is RF (radio-frequency) skin tightening. This is a non-surgical method used to tighten the skin using energy waves to heat the deep dermis layer of your skin which stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen creates the framework of your skin and gives the skin firmness. Ageing is associated with sagging skin and wrinkles which are due to less collagen being produced by the skin.

WHAT DOES SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT DO?
Even after just one session, our equipment has been scientifically proven to measurably tighten skin and reduce wrinkles in a non-surgical procedure. This safe and comfortable treatment is even suitable for treatment around the eyes, and there is no downtime needed, with the treated area being slightly pink for 30 minutes afterwards. Whilst it reduces wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, the jowls and neck are the most popular areas for facial contouring and lifting treatments.
Radio frequency is proven to be safe and effective for all skin complexions, including darker skin tones. Treatments are extremely comfortable, and you can return to your day immediately afterward.
Precisely controlled radio frequency energy heats the deeper layers of your skin, causing collagen fibres to remodel and contract, with the result of lifting and tightening of loose skin. Fat cell membranes are broken down using Radiofrequency and ultrasound in a process called cavitation. When there is no subsequent significant weight gain, this reduction of fatty deposits is long lasting or even permanent.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You will feel a deep heating sensation as the device is guided over the target area. To keep you more comfortable during treatment, the underside of the applicator provides cooling to the skin’s surface.
There is no peeling, bruising and no need for anaesthesia. The treated area will only feel slightly pink for around 30 minutes, and as there is no downtime or special care required after treatment, you can carry on with the rest of the day’s activities as normal.
The exact number of sessions needed depends on each individual patient and the area that they’re getting done. Many patients see their best results from between 4-8 sessions. You may be required to come back for a final session 3 months after your course of treatment and a lot of our patients often have a top-up before an important event.
All you have to do is make sure your skin is clean before your treatment: no lotions, creams, or makeup.
Treatments are extremely comfortable. Some have compared to the feeling of a relaxing hot stone massage. Some patients have even fallen asleep during their treatment.
The treatments are cumulative, which means you’ll need more than one to see long lasting results. After the final session in your treatment plan, your results will continue to develop for up to 3-4 months. However, your face and body will continue to age, so maintenance treatments are recommended once a month or every 3-4 months, depending on each individual person.
There is absolutely no downtime required. The area may look a little red and feel warm, but this should go away within one or two hours.
