FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does the skin tightening treatment do?
Radio frequency (RF) skin tightening is a technique that uses RF energy to heat dermal tissue and stimulate collagen production for instant tightening and lifting to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The result is an instant tightening and lifting of the treated area. Over time the treatment stimulates new collagen and elastin development to provide significantly longer-lasting results.
When RF is combined with the vacuum the circulation is dramatically improved and toxins are drawn out for a brighter complexion.
Who can have skin tightening?
Anyone can have a skin tightening treatment, all they need is skin to tighten!
On the face radio-frequency skin tightening is an ideal treatment for around the eyes, jawline and neck, particularly for people looking for lasting results but want to avoid injectables.
On the arms radio-frequency skin tightening is ideal for people who have 'bingo wings' either through a little weight loss or as part of the natural ageing process.
On the body radio-frequency skin tightening is ideal for people with good skin elasticity but who have a little loose skin as a result of pregnancy or slight weight loss.
Does skin tightening hurt?
Skin tightening does not hurt, however as there is some heat to the treatment some people find the treatment to be slightly uncomfortable. The sensation is similar to a hot stone masage.
I've just had a baby, can I get skin tightening?
As soon as you are fully recovered from child-birth, and feel ready, we can perform skin tightening on your selected areas. However, please be aware that at The Harley Medical Group we will not treat you if you for skin tightenting are breastfeeding.
How long does skin tightening take?
Non surgical skin tightening time will depend on the area size being treated, your nurse wil be able to advise you at your free, no obligation consultation. We would request you allow approximately an hour from start to finish, particularly if you combine with fat reduction.
At The Harley Medical Group we recommend a course of three or eight treatments, depending on the area treated, for optimum results.
