Radio Frequency Treatment

Radio Frequency is a revolutionary treatment that firms, tightens and lifts the skin, all without having to go under the knife.

Radio Frequency treatments sculpts and tightens the appearance of the skin by safely and comfortably heating the tissue and the fat cells under the skin’s surface. The applicator uses Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) as well as Radio Frequency to produce uniform heat under the skin’s surface. When the desired heat is achieved, this triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin. The result is effortlessly tighter, smoother, and more sculpted area.

This effective and amazing rejuvenation treatment is focused on providing you with a smoother and remodelled body or facial skin in which you can feel confident and proud. Post pregnancy or after significant weight loss, loose skin can remain. Radio Frequency is a highly popular treatment which is very effective in tightening sagging skin.

Radio Frequency Facial

Radio Frequency is all about stimulating your own collagen production. This innovative technology delivers concentrated Radio Frequency heat to the deepest dermis layers, promoting skin elasticity and firmness around the abdomen, face, legs, double chin and more. During a treatment a machine is used to heat the skin to between 38-43 degrees with Radio Frequency, which feels like a hot stone face massage – you do feel heat in the skin but it’s comfortable. The heat causes the collagen fibres to shorten and contract, stimulating the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin fibres. This restructures and stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in tighter, toned skin, decreased wrinkle depth, fine lines, and leaving the skin firmer, defined and lifted.

Radio Frequency can be used on any part of the body to tighten any loose and sagging skin. It is also suitable for any age group, gender and is very safe with minor side effects. Radio Frequency is effectively used on areas of the face and neck, the breasts and tummy, and upper arms, thighs and legs. It can be used on any part of the body that requires the skin to become more tighter, and firmer. Radio Frequency simply relies on the body’s own natural healing abilities meaning the results are far more natural and desirable than the tell-tale frozen stare associated with other treatments on the market. For example; injectables paralyses the muscle not allowing it to exercise. The muscle then deteriorates (muscle atrophy). Once the chemical has worn off, the problem is worse and you are forced to continue the downward cycle.

An immediate effect can be seen following the Radio Frequency treatment, with clients seeing a small change in the area treated. New collagen and elastin will be produced in the body for up to 6 months after your initial sessions of Radio Frequency treatments. However, if you continue to ‘top-up’ with regular visits to the clinic, the results of RF are often long-lasting. RF is considered one of the best non surgical ways to tighten loose skin.

Radio Frequency is non-invasive technology that uses an applicator to induce the generation of heat within the cutaneous tissues. The treatment has been used for many decades for a variety of medical applications. Radio Frequency penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and stimulate the body to produce new collagen and strengthen existing collagen fibres. The heating effect causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres and an increases in the metabolism of the ‘fibroblastin’. Radio Frequency continues to accelerate the production of new collagen fibres and strengthen elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin. Radio Frequency treatment for the double chin is great if your wanting to see quick results.

It takes approximately 30 minutes to treat a whole face and the only discomfort is some feeling of heat in the skin (which not everyone gets). There is no downtime – you could easily have a treatment at lunchtime and go out that evening looking amazing. Radio Frequency is the perfect complement to Ultrasonic Cavitation if you are looking for fat reduction or can also be used alongside MED: HIFU Facelift for extra lift and tone of the face. A course of 6 – 8 weekly treatments is recommended to achieve optimum results.


  • Which Treatment Is Better, MED: HIFU Ultra Or Radio Frequency?

    ​​MED: HIFU Ultra in short is better for tightening and lifting the face area. However, at RT Aesthetics we recommend that every client has a face-to-face consultation to discuss the problem area in detail and what results their wanting to achieve. Every client is different and therefore the best way to understand what treatment would be best suited for you is to meet with you face-to-face. We don’t believe in charging a client for a MED: HIFU Ultra treatment if they don’t need it and only need a Radio Frequency Facial procedure. HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound and is the latest non-surgical, clinically proven technology, for lifting and tightening the face, neck and décolletage. HIFU is one of the most advanced technologies today and has the power to target deeper layers under the skin then Radio Frequency.

  • Radio Frequency Results

    You get an immediate tightening of the collagen fibres, so it’s great to do before an event, but it also gives a long-lasting lift and increased volume. It also continues to promote collagen production over the 6 – 12 weeks following a treatment.

  • What Are Radio Frequency Side Effects?

    Radio Frequency treatment is completely safe with very limited side-effect. Some clients may experience redness around the the treatment area, although this passes within 1 – 2 hours after the treatment. Radio Frequency is completely safe and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves or connective tissue under the skin. The most frequently reported side effects of treatment with Radio Frequency energy are swelling, redness, bumps on or around the treated area, which typically disappear in a few days or weeks.

  • Do you have before & after photos?

    We sure do! Most of our before and after photos are posted on our social media pages: Facebook (@rtaesthetics) & Instagram (@rtaestheticsltd). During the face to face consultation the Aesthetic Practitioner will show you before and after photos relating to the treatment you are looking to have. For example, fat reduction, double chin reduction, or reduction and removal of fine lines and wrinkles. We also have 1000’s of reviews on Trustpilot, Google, Yell and Netmums.
