RF Skin Tightening
Radio-frequency skin tightening and lifting is a minimally invasive, non- surgical process that helps tighten and lift sagging skin. This process uses radiofrequency waves on the skin to heat the collagen under the skin’s surface. This causes the skin to contract, tighten and lift. The process provides an alternative to facelift and other cosmetic surgeries. Multiple sessions are required for best results. Each sitting takes about 30-40 minutes and the sittings are repeated at 4 to 6 weekly intervals. There is a feeling of a little warmth on the skin during the sessions but the sessions are more or less painless and very comfortable.
