Radio Frequency 

Skin tightening, Contouring and Lifting

Radio-Frequency (RF) energy is a form of electromagnetic energy ranging from 300MHz to 3kHz. Radio-frequency has been used surgically for over 50 years for coagulation. It became popular in cosmetic medicine around the year 2000 and since has grown to be the gold standard non-surgical solution in skin tightening and tissue rejuvenation. Many practices, medspa, and doctor's clinics choose to use RF-based treatments. Radio-frequency is color blind, meaning that the target or chromophore is not melanin.


How thermal energy created?

When the skin conducts electrical current, it causes the ions in the tissue to collide. This action creates kinetic energy. This kinetic energy is transformed into thermal energy in the skin, meaning heat.

The heat causes micro-controlled damage to the skin tissue, mainly the dermis, and the damage triggers the healing mechanism of the skin.

The result of this is the renewal and regeneration of the damaged tissue, namely the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers. Radio-frequency is a proven research-based technology for collagen and elastin production; once the healing occurs, the moisture levels of the skin improve simultaneously.

Radiofrequency is safe for all skin types.

Radio Frequency Contraindications

  • Active inflammation and/or infection in the treatment area

  • Current or previous cancer diagnosis

  • Degenerative neurologic disease or any other disease around the treatment area that’s triggered by heat (e.g. herpes)

  • Internal defibrillator/pacemaker

  • Metal implants (excluding dental) in the treatment area

  • Uncontrolled thyroid gland disorder

  • Varicose veins on treated area

  • Pregnant or are undergoing an IVF procedure

  • Skin-related autoimmune disease

  • Silicone implants and/or injections in the area

How long does the treatment take?

Each session takes just on average 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area. The treatment doesn't require special post care , you can come back to your regular activities immediately after the treatment. Some mild redness might occur , but will go down in next 24 hours.

How many sessions are needed to see results? Are they permanent?

Most patients receive six to eight treatments per area, though the exact number will depend on the area being treated. Following the final session, results will continue to improve for up to three to four months, but the treatments won’t halt the aging process altogether. Maintenance sessions are recommended every one to four months, depending on the results the individual wishes to maintain.

Is there any specific pre- or post-procedure care required?

Do NOT undergo any skin peel or laser procedures for 2 weeks prior to the procedure. For post-care there is no downtime. The area treated may appear a little flushed and warm to the touch, but these sensations will disappear within 24 hours after each treatment. Nothing needs to be done after each session. Patients can go about their usual routines and they can even apply makeup immediately following a facial treatment.

How long is the healing process last ?

Healing process is fast and safe. Mild redness will disappear in 24 hours post the procedure . The skin will improve consistently for 28 days post treatment.
