Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Using Radio Frequency
Is your lifestyle already taking toll on your skin? Are you experiencing signs of loose and sagging skin? Do you look older than your age? If the answer to all these questions are ‘yes’, then it is time, that you took control of your life and changed the way your skin looks and feels. Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is an ideal solution for you. It is a non-surgical treatment for skin tightening and will help you get rid of the early signs of loose and sagging skin. It is best for people who don’t want to undergo a surgical process.
Skin Deep Perfection brings you the latest treatment of radio frequency skin tightening on the Gold Coast. We use pure radio frequency energy devices like Accent™, Pelleve™, Thermage™ andTripollar™ to treat your skin. If you have mild to moderate sagging and you are between the ages of 30 to 50, then this treatment will suit you best. We commonly use this process to treat forehead, jaw line, neck, eyes and cheeks. You will see improvement in your skin tightness in a few weeks. Compared to surgical processes, this process has minimal risk and down time.
RF Skin Tightening Benefits
- A non-invasive technique that can tighten facial or body skin
- No surgery required
- Minimal discomfort
- Minimal risk of change in skin
- May be used for all skin types
- Rare downtime
Compared to other skin tightening treatment, the major difference for light and RF is that the epidermis or outer skin layer is not damaged in any way but the radio frequency energy or light energy heats the deeper skin layers during the treatment. The body’s natural wound healing response then causes collagen changes in the skin with resultant skin tightening. A series of these treatments is usually performed.
- The goal of this process is to control the heating through radio frequency such that it is just enough to stimulate good tightening of the tissues.
- There is no damage epidermis or the outer layer of the skin. The goal is to control the heating to be “just enough” to stimulate “good” tightening of your tissues. Just as there are hot and cool spots in microwave cooking, RF energy can affect tissue differently in different people.
- Pulsed light treatments can work in 2 ways: Converting light to heat in your tissue (similar to the sun warming your skin) and by stimulating repair cells in your skin.
- Non surgical skin tightening devices have minimal recovery and full activity may be resumed immediately.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Technique
At Skin Deep Perfection we will assess whether you are a good candidate for these treatments. The different systems have different criteria to ensure your safety. Depending on local custom (and local regulations), treatment may be done either by your doctor or a technician on his staff.
The area to be treated is cleaned of makeup and skin lotions. Some treatments require a thin coat of ultrasound gel during treatment. Premedication may be required depending upon device, treatment area, and your individual needs. One or more “passes” may be performed. Treatment may take anywhere from several minutes to one hour to complete.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Considerations

- These treatments are useful after a surgical procedure to improve skin quality
- Multiple treatments are usually be needed
- Small burns are rare but possible
- Skin may be red in the treated area for a few hours
- Rare loss of volume beneath in treatment areas has been reported

Some patients may experience skin redness, temporary swelling of the treated area and temporary numbness of the area
