RF Skin Tightening

Radio Frequency, also referred to as RF, is a fantastic treatment for tightening loose or sagging skin on any area of the body to produce firmer, more youthful looking skin. RF works by generating heat and applying it to the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. The heat causes tissue retraction, resulting in instantly tighter and firmer skin. It also works to stimulate collagen production which over time produces a more youthful looking appearance. RF is a painless treatment and most clients will experience zero discomfort. Some find the warm sensation relaxing.

One of the most noticeable signs of ageing is a loss in skin elasticity which causes sagging skin, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. These can also be accelerated by sun exposure and poor lifestyle habits, such as smoking. RF Skin Tightening works by using RF energy waves to heat the skin up to 40 degrees. This causes the collagen fibres to heat up which triggers a number of healing reactions from the body. This includes the stimulation of new collagen and elastin, tissue retraction as skin is immediately tightened and firmed, and improved blood circulation which leads to overall skin rejuvenation. The result is healthier, plumper, and more youthful skin without the need for any downtime.

Your professional clinician will go through everything that you can expect to happen during your treatment at your initial consultation, as well as any correct aftercare steps to be taken. This procedure involves moving a handheld device over the affected area which will emit radio frequency wavelengths into the skin to heat and trigger the body’s natural healing response and stimulate collagen production.

Safety Precautions

Pre-treatment preparation and post-treatment care are vital steps of your Radio Frequency treatments. In order to ensure a safe treatment and to achieve the best results, please follow all advice provided and reach out to us if you have any questions. Failure to follow your skin therapists' advice may increase the risk of undesirable effects.


The procedure is relatively safe, especially when executed by an experienced skin therapist. However, keep in mind that any procedure is accompanied by a risk of complications. Even though rare, RF skin tightening can lead to complications such as infection. Patients should expect some minor side effects after treatment. Most skin tightening procedures can cause a little redness after the treatment. The redness usually dissipates after a week. Some pink shades can remain for a couple of weeks after the procedure. This can easily be covered with mineral makeup. To ensure your makeup is safe to use after skin tightening, be sure to contact us for advice.
