RF Skin Tightening
RF Skin Tightening
A nonsurgical option for creating a sculpted silhouette with firmer, tighter skin.
Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening offers a nonsurgical, noninvasive way to tighten skin. No cuts, incisions or injections are necessary for RF skin tightening. Using energy waves that heat the deep layer of the skin, RF tightening helps to stimulate collagen production. This is important because collagen is the building block of the body’s tissue. As we age, collagen production slows down. Many people who try to maintain fitness beyond their 20s and 30s find that their skin doesn’t necessarily “bounce back into to shape” with diet and exercise the way it did in their younger years.
The intended result of RF skin tightening is firm, sculpted skin that can’t be achieved through simply losing weight and toning up. This is a toning and tightening treatment that is very effective when addressing loose skin caused by weight loss, aging or body changes. RF skin tightening can be used throughout the face and body. Many people find that it gives them their desired results for body sculpting, face contouring, face slimming and wrinkle reduction. Here’s a look at the zones where RF tightening can be very effective:
- Abdomen and stomach
- Upper arms
- Jowls on the lower half of the face
- Puffy or drooping under-eye bags
RF tightening’s ability to be used throughout the face and body makes it a top option among patients seeking overall sculpting and shaping of the silhouette. It can also be used strategically for reducing and smoothing cellulite, tightening and toning sagging skin, improving the overall elasticity and firmness of skin and improving circulation and lymphatic flow. It has become common for patients seeking RF skin tightening to combine this procedure with another liposuction alternative called ultrasound fat cavitation. This procedure uses ultrasonic waves to transform fat cells into fatty acids that the body can dispose of following treatment. When paired together, RF skin tightening and cavitation can reduce fat while also addressing loose skin that results from fat loss. Patients looking for a more comprehensive approach to tightening and sculpting their bodies may want to discuss options for pairing the two procedures.
What to Expect From RF Skin Tightening
Patients who use RF skin tightening to address sagging and looseness enjoy a noninvasive procedure that doesn’t require downtime. It is an alternative to surgery that makes it possible to sculpt a firmer, more toned physique without the discomfort, recovery time or cost associated with conventional surgical options. Typically, it can take between six and 10 treatments spaced at one week apart for results to be maximized. This is something that can vary based on patient goals. RF skin tightening is considered a painless procedure. While some patients may experience very mild and temporary redness in the treatment area, most patients can expect to simply resume their days immediately after treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for RF Skin Tightening?
RF skin tightening can be a good option for someone who is looking for many of the same benefits of liposuction and surgery without the cost, downtime or invasiveness. This is an option that may help you to reach your aesthetic goals if you’re struggling with loose skin following weight loss that is preventing you from enjoying your new shape in the fullest way. RF skin tightening can also help to create a firmer look if you’re experiencing sagging skin due to age, lifestyle or sun exposure.

What is RF Skin Tightening
Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening tightens, tones and firms loose, sagging or ageing skin. RF Skin Tightening treatments can address lax skin on virtually any part of the face or body.
Can I combine RF Skin Treatments with Fat Cavitation treatments?
Fat Cavitation and RF Skin Tightening work excellent as hand in hand treatments to reduce fat and tighten loosened skin as a result of fat loss, they also work just as effective as stand-alone services. For example, if you wanted to tighten and firm loose skin on the neck area you may only require RF Skin Tightening treatment. Your individual concerns and needs will be discussed during the pre-treatment consultation process.
How many treatments will I need
This will be individually assessed during your consultation. Typically, to achieve maximum results, a course of 6-10 treatments will be prescribed spaced at one week apart.
Are the treatments painful
RF Skin Tightening treatments are painless, which is one of the many reasons why they offer a popular alternative to surgery or liposuction. Some patients may experience redness in the treatment area initially, but this will pass soon enough.
Is there any downtime following treatment?
No. Another great benefit of RF Skin Tightening treatments does not require downtime. Following your session, you are free to get on with your day as usual.
