Radiofrequency (RF)

Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment is technology for non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin; ideal for those people who either don’t want or don’t believe they are old enough to have a surgical procedure.

Pure RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening, and 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, with minimal risks and downtime compared to surgery. Prices for radiofrequency facial tightening treatment depend on the area(s) treated and the device used.

How long does it last?

Results are said to be visible right from the first treatment and can last for months to years if maintained. It also depends on the chronological ageing of the patients and their lifestyle.

Maintenance may be needed from 6 months and up, depends on the patient’s skin.
