How does radiofrequency skin tightening work?

Radio frequency skin tightening treatment uses targeted energy to heat deep dermal layer of skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and gradually improves skin tone and texture. This treatment also forms part of our cellulite reduction treatment as it breaks down fibrous tissue to help smooth cellulite and appearance of dimpled / wrinkled skin.

Many clients come to Dr Leah Clinics if they have been researching surgical body tightening treatments such as brachioplasty or a tummy tuck but are reluctatnt to have surgery to tighten loose skin due to the risk of downtime and scarring. Our skin tightening treatment is a suitable way to tighten loose skin on stomach without surgery, it is also suitable to get rid of bingo wings.

If you have been looking into how to get rid of bingo wings, or how to tighten loose skin on stomach – both of these areas can be treated effectively with a course of radiofrequency treatment.

What can radio frequency do for me?

Our skin-tightening technology can be applied to the face or body. On body radiofrequency can be used to treat saggy skin on stomach or arms, it can also be used to treat cellulite as part of our cellulite reduction treatment.

Our Radiofrequency Skin tightening treatment can be used to:

  • Tighten loose skin after weightloss
  • Treat and tighten loose skin on arms/ bingo wings
  • Treat and tighten loose skin on thighs

What is the process of the skin tightening treatment?

  • If you are unsure if this is the right treatment for you, you can book a free body consultation, during this consultation our Advanced Aesthetic Therapist will assess your suitability for skin tightening and advise how many sessions you are likely to require to achieve your aims (minimum number of sessions is 6).
  • If you are sure that that is the right treatment for you, you can book in for the treatment directly by calling to book, this will allow you to book in for your first skin tightening treatment, your therapist on the day of this first treatment will be able to advise how many sessions you are likely to require
  • On the day of treatment the process itself generally does not take more than 40 minutes and the process involves gel being applied to the area, the area is then heated using the radiofrequency probe until the desired temperature to achieved – it is not painful and actually feels like a hot stone massage.
  • The area may appear red in colour for several hours after treatment but it is unlikely to be painful or sensitive
  • You will attend the clinic once every 5-7 days for treatment until you have completed your treatment course



How long does radiofrequency skin tightening results last?

Typically results last six months, at which point several top up treatments are recommended to sustain the result.

Is radiofrequency skin tightening suitable for everyone?

This treatment is unsuitable for pregnant and or breastfeeding women.
A full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at your face to face consultation.

What is the aftercare after skin tightening treatment?

Avoid rubbing creams or lotions on the treated area within 24 hours of the radio frequency procedure. No hot shower or bath for 24 hours.

What is the best treatment for loose skin after weight loss?

The options are either non-surgical which is radiofrequency skin tightening OR surgical resection of excess skin. Which is best for loose skin depends on the amount of excess skin present and individual factors such as the age of the client, risk of scarring with surgery, risk of general anaesthetic depending on client medical history. Dr Leah Clinic do not offer surgery for excess skin after weight loss, we offer only non-surgical treatment.

Can I tighten loose skin on stomach without surgery?

Yes this can be achieved using radiofrequency skin tightening – there are also other non surgical skin tightening treatments available at Dr Leah Clinic including laser treatment (mummy tummy makeover) or plasma IQ treatment which can give more dramatic results if required.
