What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?

How to use Radio Frequency tightening for your skin

Radio frequency isn’t your average treatment! It is one of the most effective treatments for tightening loose skin. Using electrical based heat energy, we can remove damaged skin cells on the upper skin layers. In turn helping to create smoother, brighter skin, minimised pores, even skin texture and reduced pigmentation.

At Ocean Cosmetics, we use the Endymed 3DEEP handpieces and  Vivace Skin Needling for rejuvenating the skin. The process works by stimulating the deeper levels of the skin with heat to generate a natural healing response. The effects of cell regeneration and collagen production during the healing process can visibly change the appearance of fine lines, loose skin and wrinkles. The process is stimulating your own collagen with a warm facial, different from the light based energy treatment of laser and LED.

Benefits of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening:

  • The treatment can be used at any age
  • Painless and safe treatment
  • No downtime with immediate results
  • Improves lymphatic drainage
  • A deeper level of skin toning and lifting
  • Stimulates blood circulation in the face
  • Suitable for all Fitzpatrick skin types
  • A safe alternative for pregnant or breastfeeding women, especially when injectables aren’t an available option.

How does EndyMed 3DEEP work?

Several painless energy pulses penetrate through the deeper layers of the skin using heat from the Radio Frequency. The treatment area is triggered to begin producing collagen and elastin, all without any downtime! After the heat is administered, the healing process begins to tighten the skin, working at smoothing out wrinkles and reducing the appearance of scars.

The technology is unique, using six independent, phase-controlled RF generators to deliver maximum controlled energy to the depths of the dermis. 3DEEP heats the dermal layer from up to 42 – 55°C with a low amount of epidermal heat on the surface. You’ll feel that your skin is warm but a very bearable temperature.

This Radio Frequency Skin Tightening treatment is most effective with six sessions per week but expect to see results immediately! Your skin will continue to improve for up to 18 months after the treatment.

Equipment used

For this treatment, we use a hand piece and gel. The gel is applied to evenly distribute the heat over the surface of the skin, making it a comfortable and pain-free experience. We work with the hand piece in circular movements as the gel is gradually heated to the desired temperature. The warmth stimulates the elastin fibres in the skin; this is where the lifting and tightening effect starts to work.

There are Radio Frequency hand pieces that can be used for Body Contouring, mainly used to treat the appearance of cellulite. By assisting with lymphatic drainage and tightening collagen, smoother results can be achieved over a number of treatments.

Vivace Microneedling

Vivace is a new state-of-the-art technology available at Ocean Cosmetics. We are proud to be the first clinic in Western Australia to offer this treatment! With a combination of Radio-Frequency, combined with Micro-needling, the Vivace Experience is used to rejuvenate the skin, improve active acne and minimise scarring.

The combination works to heat the deeper layers of the skin before using controlled microneedling on the skin. This process boosts blood supply and boosts long-term collagen production.

It’s the perfect treatment if you’re looking for something with minimal discomfort and downtime. Don’t forget; Vivace can be used on your hands, neck, décolletage and other areas of scarring such as stretch marks.

To improve skin tone and texture, the Vivace Experience helps to:

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin tightening
  • Scar revision
  • Reduce spider veins
  • Improve stretch marks
  • Minimise pore size
  • Improve skin texture and even skin tone

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening treatments can be quick appointments with minimal downtime, you can even have one during your lunch break! To see the full benefits of Radio Frequency, we recommended multiple treatments to create a glowing, lifted look. We always discuss what your skin concerns in your consultation are before starting your treatment to ensure we’re catering to your skin goals.
