RF Skin Tightening uses an electrical current to heat and tighten the skin. It is a painless and comfortable procedure, and can be used on the face as well as other areas of the body. Our RF Skin Tightening treatment at Harley Ultrasound is great for reducing loose skin caused by weight loss and childbirth, as well as decreasing signs of ageing like wrinkles.
With RF Skin Tightening, you can improve the quality and texture of your skin. Your skin will look young, healthy and replenished with a course of our RF Skin Tightening treatments.
How does it work?
RF Skin Tightening involves applying an electrical current to the skin. In response to this, the skin resists the electrical current, encouraging the creation of thermal energy. The heat affects the growth of collagen, which is a protein in the skin that induces tightening. Younger people tend to have firmer skin because they have a greater content of collagen in their skin than those who are older. Find out more on our RF Skin Tightening Science page.
During the treatment, the temperature of the skin is monitored closely to prevent any blisters of burns. In regards to the face, the temperature is kept around 40-42 degrees Celsius. Other areas of the body are treated to a temperature of roughly 45 degrees Celsius.
Results and Aftercare
Following RF Skin Tightening at Harley Ultrasound, our therapists will apply C-TOX Serum. This stimulates the production and repair of collagen, helping you to get the best results from the treatment. In regards to taking care of your body, you must avoid all hot environments, including saunas and steam rooms for at least 72 hours after the procedure. In addition to this, you should apply sun cream to the area every day after the treatment, and avoid direct sun exposure and sunbeds. This is because it is likely that the skin will be sensitive. Our therapists at Harley Ultrasound recommend that you apply C-TOX Serum once a day following the treatment, to ensure that you get long-lasting results.
