Radio Frequency

A Radiofrequency (RF) treatment is a non-surgical tightening treatment for those with the early signs of loose or sagging skin. It is ideal for those people seeking a non surgical option with little to no downtime.

Pure RF energy is used to treat the targeted area to improve firmness of the skin.

This treatment is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid 30s to 50s, with any skin colour.

It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck. Based on current RF technologies, most people should see at least a mild improvement in their skin tightness after each treatment.

  • Avoid alcohol for 1 week.

  • If possible come to your appointment with the treatment area cleanly washed without make-up.

Post Treatment Care​

  • Apply cold compresses or cold pack to the treated areas for 10-15 minutes every hour for the next few hours, as needed.

  • A mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours or more. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, but it usually resolves in 2-3 days. Over-the-counter 100% aloe Vera gel may ease redness or inflammation.

  • Minor crusting or peeling of the skin is a common side effect. In rare cases blistering may occur. 

  • Keep the area clean. Wash gently and avoid aggressive scrubbing or use of exfoliants, scrubbing brushes, and loofah sponges until the sensitivity and coloured of the treated area has returned to normal.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure, including sun lamps and tanning beds, for 2-3 weeks after treatment. If exposed to the sun, protect the treated areas with a full spectrum sun block of 30 SPF or higher, used regularly between treatments and after the treatment course is completed.

  • Until redness has completely resolved, avoid: Applying cosmetics, swimming- especially in pools with chemicals, hot tubs and saunas, and activities that cause excess perspiration such as intense exercise
