RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) SKIN TIGHTENING
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is a safe and noninvasive treatment, which uses heat to encourage the production of collagen and tighten the skin.
The frequency penetrates the epidermis and heats the dermis. In response the collagen, fibres begin contracting and remodelling, effectively thickening and leading to immediate results. Additional collagen fibres synthesis occurs due to the healing process of the skin, induced by the heat. Over time this will continue, gradually improving the quality of your skin and a decrease in deep wrinkles.
Our Radio Frequency Skin Tightening treatment can be used for the face and the body. The procedure helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, and decrease signs of ageing such as wrinkles.
With literally no after care or downtime, body contouring treatments are gradually replacing tummy tucks and liposuction.

IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is a non-invasive treatment, and many clients do not experience any pain or discomfort during the treatment. However, some clients may feel discomfort from the heat. Do not worry – the skin is monitored throughout the treatment with an infra-red thermometer to make sure that it stays at the right temperature.
POST TREATMENT CARE?
It is normal to notice mild redness in the area after the treatment. The area may also feel a little tender. This is nothing to worry about, and will generally fade within a few days. Please follow the aftercare instructions below, which will help you to get the best results:
Avoid hot environments such as saunas, steam rooms and hot showers for a minimum of 72 hours after the treatment. If you have a bath or a shower, use warm water.
Do not undergo any heat treatment for at least a few days, as this may make the area feel sore.
Apply C TOX Serum to the area at least once a day following the procedure, to stimulate collagen synthesis.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
It is important to note that results vary from person to person, and the results that you see will depend on your body and the number of treatments you have had.
Typically, our clients notice results in the first few weeks following the treatment.
HOW DO I KNOW IT'S WORKING?
Take pictures for comparison. When you look at your body every day, you may not notice gradual changes.
Take a picture before the treatment, and once every one or two weeks after the treatment, so you can compare.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO RECOVER?
There is no downtime for Radio Frequency Skin Tightening, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
The number of sessions that you need will depend on which areas you would like to treat and your goals.
Generally, we recommend a course of 6 to 8 sessions for the best, long-lasting results.
