What can the skin tightening procedure do for me?
You may notice a decrease in the quality of your skin’s elasticity over time as a result of the biological aging process. This is caused by collagen fragmentation, a decrease in the cells that produce collagen fibers and insufficient blood circulation, which ultimately lead to a reduction in the skin’s nutrient supply and tautness.
Once your skin has been assessed with our certified medical staff, a treatment plan is designed to achieve a fresher, firmer face by:
- Remodeling collagen supply
- Increasing tone and elasticity
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Removing dead cells
- Regenerating damaged cells
Take-home products are available to support and maintain clinic treatment.

The RF System is a radiofrequency aesthetic solution which may also be used for the skin tightening procedure. It safely and effectively treats facial wrinkles while temporarily reducing the appearance of body cellulite for a smoother, healthier looking appearance.
Radiofrequency (RF) creates a heated treatment zone to induce collagen contraction in facial skin without damaging the epidermis. Increased resistance causes heat buildup at the subdermal junction which results in further collagen denaturation, stimulating the growth of new collagen.
In a clinical study, patients noticed tighter skin and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles1. Patient results include skin tightening and wrinkle reduction along with noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance. They were able to return to their daily routine immediately following treatment.
