Recently, a client asked us "Do you have the treatment that irons your wrinkles away?" 'Yes we do' was our reply, all the while thinking what a fantastic way to describe our new Radiofrequency Facial. The secret of many Hollywood A listers and ladies in the know, Radiofrequency is the latest in non surgical face & body firming treatments.
Deep Heat Energy Facial
Radiofrequency Facial treatments are considered among the most effective non-surgical procedures available today. Via this treatment, radio waves penetrate the outer skin layers and deliver heat energy to the muscles and tissues beneath. This heat stimulates collagen production, and that, in turn, triggers tissue contraction. The overall result is tighter, brighter skin and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles.
Your Radiofrequency Treatment
Your treatment starts with a consultation to discover your objectives which can be the eye area, chin, jaw line, etc. Then:
- A thorough double cleanse, first with Apricot Cream Cleanser followed by Glycolic Acid Mild Gel Wash
- Deep exfoliation with Revitalize Therapeutic Papaya Enzyme Peel Mask
- Radiofrequency treatment
- Application of Phyt02 Hydration Serum
- Application of Alpha Lipoic Omega Antioxidant Serum
- Application of SPF 45
The Radiofrequency starts with a large disc being massaged over your skin, getting warmer and warmer until comfortably warm. You will find the warm massage very relaxing and could easily fall asleep.

Radiofrequency Body Treatments
The Radiofrequency facelift has been approved by the FDA as a non-surgical treatment for wrinkles and facial skin imperfections. This treatment requires no downtime. Best of all, results are immediately noticeable, and they become even more so in the weeks following the treatment as the build-up of collagen effects further skin contraction.
Common Anti-Aging Concerns Treated with RF Facials
Radiofrequency energy is primarily used to treat skin laxity through facial tightening. This treatment is effective on both light and dark skin, and best results are seen by patients in their mid-30s to mid-60s, who display mild to moderate facial sagging.
RF energy is commonly used to treat the following areas
- Forehead (lifts brows and tightens forehead skin)
- Under Eyes (thickens skin and tightens and lifts the upper cheek)
- Cheeks (lifts slightly and diminishes enlarged pores)
- Mid-Face and Jaw Line (diminishes jowls and sagging along the jaw line)
- Neck (treats "chicken neck" by tightening skin and diminishing wrinkles)
- Acne (prevent and reduce acne scaring, reduces inflammation from acne scar tissue)
It is also worth noting that when RF energy is used in combination with other modalities, it can enhance the results derived from treatments that include: hair removal, photorejuvenation, pigment and vascular problems, acne treatment and cellulite treatment.
How does an RF Facial work?
RF works through radio wave currents that penetrate deep into the dermis (deepest layer of the skin) and subcutaneous layers of the skin causing tightening of the underlying tissues showing a difference with fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture.
Do RF Facials hurt?
No. Every patient's experience may vary due to individual pain tolerance. The radio currents provide heat on the skin causing minimal discomfort. Clients describe the process as a warm relaxing face massage.
What types of aesthetics concerns are corrected with RF Facials?
RF facials are an alternative for patients who are not ready for more invasive treatments such as Botox® and surgery creating the look of a brow lift, modest tightening of the forehead, tightening and thickening of the under eye skin, slightly lifting cheeks and diminishing large pores, jowling and sagging around the jaw line, as well as wrinkling along the neck and decollete. A RF facial improves skin laxity and renewing facial contours by accelerating collagen and elastin renewal.
How long is the down-time?
Minimal to no downtime is needed. It is a non-invasive procedure; no surgery, no injections, no recovery time. You may experience some redness or swelling up to 24 hours.
How soon do you start seeing results?
Immediately you can see results with the RF facial. Photos are taken before and after to see the variation.
How long do results last?
Results vary from patient to patient. They can last up 24 months or more based on the patient's natural aging process.
How many treatments are necessary?
For best results, 6-10 treatments within 6-8 weeks of each other are recommended. Your practitioner will advise you of how many treatments would be best for the results you are looking for and your skin condition.
How long is each treatment?
Each treatment is about 30 minutes to an hour.
Pre and Post-treatment recommendation?
Before you have an RF facial done you should avoid any type of sun exposure either by lying out in the sun, using artificial tanning with tanning beds or self-tanners, etc. This should be avoided approximately two weeks before and after RF treatments. After RF treatments, you should follow practitioner recommendations for an at home skin care recommendations to maintain between treatments and have longer lasting results when you are done with your series of treatments.
Can anyone have this procedure done?
This procedure is usually performed on patients in their 30s-60s. It is safe for all skin types.
Patients who should not have this procedure?
Patients with electrical devices such as: pacers, heart valves, metal implants or artificial metal joints. The RF currents may interfere with some of these devices and/or heat up the metal implants.
Can a RF Facial be combined with other anti-aging treatments?
RF facials can be combined with our Pure Oxygen Facial, Medical Grade Peels or Collagen Stimulating Treatments for a more aggressive form of anti-aging and give a more plumped effect to the skin.
DURING YOUR RF FACIAL YOUR ENTIRE FACE WILL BE TREATED. HOWEVER, YOUR ESTHECIANS WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO CONCENTRATE ON ANY AREAS OF CONCERN.
