Skin Tightening Newcastle

Time waits for no one, and while some people take drastic measures to combat the signs of ageing, you would be surprised at how effective non surgical procedures are.

Non Surgical skin tightening procedures are clinically proven. They are non-invasive, non-surgical and can reduce the signs of ageing and giving you younger, healthier looking skin without the need for surgery.

Our Radio Frequency and HIFU treatments are non-surgical procedures, which tightens the skin through stimulating collagen rebuilding. It effectively restores tone and tautness, leading to younger looking skin.

Skin ages and loosens as we age on all parts of the body. Most clients are primarily concerned about the detrimental effect that it has on their appearance. This can make a person feel negative about their self-image and self-confidence, especially the face, which is their main from image to the world.

Many of us would prefer not to have slack skin and would love to see it much tighter, plumper and youthful.

At RT Aesthetics we offer our clients a full face to face consultation appointment. This allow us to create a bespoke skin tightening treatment tailored to you and your needs. After all every single client is different. So let’s take a look at the 2 different skin tightening treatments that we offer.

Radio Frequency

Radio frequency (RF) treatment, also called radiofrequency skin tightening, is a nonsurgical method of tightening your skin. The procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is the most common protein in your body. It creates the framework of your skin and gives your skin its firmness.

Using highly efficacious radio frequency treatments, along with our light based treatments, we can tighten and lift the skin in a very natural looking way with some long lasting results. This activates collagen at the deep layers of the skin, causing a lifting and tightening reaction. By using radio frequency instead of more invasive treatments, the complete look is more natural and it involves no nasty chemicals.


Radio Frequency is a lovely relaxing treatment with involves heating the skin up to an ideal temperature of 41-42 degrees centigrade. This is the optimum temperature to stimulate the production of new collagen and tighten the skin. It causes no damage to the surrounding tissue so its very safe.

Radio Frequency uses radio waves directed through a probe head which is rested onto the skin. The radio waves are directed at the skin to produce a heating effect within the layers of the skin. This heat helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in the tightening of the surface skin. The heat helps to tighten loose and sagging skin on the face and body with instant and further progressive results.

The Benefits

  • Radio Frequency treatments will help to lift, firm and tighten skin on the face or body. It can also help smooth out stretch marks.
  • Radio Frequency is quick, convenient and painless.
  • Immediately reveals tighter, younger looking skin, all without the cost & side effects of injectables.
  • Fantastic results has created a growing celebrity following. The likes of Kylie Minogue, Amanda Holden and Mel B favour this treatment over injectables.
  • Radio Frequency stimulates the skin’s own ability to produce collagen and elastin.

HIFU Treatment

HIFU Ultra is medical grade and has proven success across the UK.  Results last between 18 months and 3 years which is great and a lot more effective than standard. HIFU treatment is a highly precise medical procedure using high intensity focused ultrasound to heat and destroy pathogenic tissue rapidly.

MED: HIFU Ultra was first developed and widespread for the treatment of prostate cancer. Scientist seen that the mens genitals were starting to firm & tighten and was developed into tightening and lifting the face. HIFU was approved to lift skin on the neck, on the eyebrow and under the chin as well as to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage in 2009 and 2012.

MED: HIFU Ultra individually targets brow, jowl and neck lifting, as well as overall skin tightening, rejuvenation and deeper fat cells. The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive treatments. The SMAS layer is the same area tightened during conventional surgery, however, unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no downtime.

HIFU treatments are based on hyperthermia lifting theory. The HIFU transducer irradiates 65-75Cº of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy into the skin, this then creates thermal coagulation on the target layers of skin tissue with no damage on the skin surface. Following the initial treatment, the skin starts to undergo wound healing process that simulates collagen synthesis and regeneration. Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other cosmetic procedures, HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths within the skin at the desired temperature. This HIFU energy triggers a natural response under the skin, causing the body to enter into the regenerative process, resulting in the production of new collagen.

The Benefits

  • HIFU offers long lasting effects, tightens skin and promotes wrinkle reduction.
  • HIFU helps tighten the jowls, enhances jawline definition and sculpts the chin area.
  • The HIFU treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure with no downtime.
  • HIFU deliver visible effects in lifting and tightening. It will also create new collagen which will help your skin maintain its youthful glow.
