Radio frequency skin tightening is a non-invasive alternative to surgery that is clinically proven to enhance the skin's appearance (i.e. tighten lax skin, reduce wrinkles, smooth body contours, cellulite).
How Does It Work
Radio frequency therapy helps to significantly slow skin-aging by targeting the dermis with radio frequency energy that generates heat within the body. The heat produced causes micro-damage to the tissue beneath the epidermis without negatively impacting the outward appearance of the skin. This process triggers two physical responses : fibroplasia and the liquefaction of fat cells. Firboplasia is the process in which the body forms new fibrous tissue and stimulates the production of collagen, causing collagen fibres to become shorter and more tense.
This treatment is effective for all skin types and no recovery time is required.
The Importance of Collagen
Collagen is one of the most common proteins in your body. This protein is what structures your skin and gives it its firmness. As you age, your cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles.
Degradation of the skin’s collagen can be caused by multiple factors, such as UV rays, smoking and general ageing. Truth be told, by the age of 25, the body’s collagen production begins to decline by about 1-2% a year.
This treatment is safe and effective for both the face and body. Popular areas include (but are not limited to) the arms, jawline, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
We customize treatment plans according to the individual needs of each client whether it be for skin tightening, body contouring or improvement in the appearance of cellulite (mild to moderate). Radio frequency can also be used as a follow up treatment after cosmetic surgery (i.e. to tighten the skin after liposuction). It is to be noted that the appointment time varies depending on the region of the body treated.

Before & After
For best results, it is strongly recommended to perform a course of 4 to 8 treatments. The number of treatments will be determined depending on the area to be treated, the condition and age of your skin.
Although okay to take while having this procedure done, daily use of anti-inflammatory medication may reduce the effectiveness of treatment. Also, individuals with a cardiac pacemaker or other active medical implant should not undergo RF treatments in the areas above or around these medical implants.
