Radiofrequency for skin tightening
If you’ve reached the time when you feel your skin needs a wake-up call, Radiofrequency is a non-invasive, pain-free way to help achieve a more toned, lifted and smooth appearance. Often described as a non-surgical facelift, Radiofrequency delivers heat energy into the skin which stimulates collagen leaving you with a firmer, lifted, tightened complexion.
Radiofrequency is an effective treatment for cellulite, loose, sagging and wrinkled skin, or even help restore your body’s natural contours after pregnancy or surgery. Harnessing Unipolar and Bipolar Radiofrequency to create a unique dual technology, Accent Radiofrequency delivers controlled heat to two different layers of your skin. Bipolar Radiofrequency is effective on thin and delicate skin such as the face, making it suitable to target fine lines and wrinkles. Unipolar Radiofrequency helps to improve shaping, smoothness and firmness by using alternate electromagnetic fields to cause heating and friction in the deeper layers of the skin.
Even better, the treatment is usually very comfortable, with people often describing the sensation as a “warm massage”, and with zero downtime, you can return to your daily life immediately after the treatment.
“I swear that two nights after my initial treatment, when I emerge from my hot bath my bottom has the nice plump appearance of a baby.” Marie Claire, June 2008“...My skin is softer and less lumpy.” Fitness, June 2008

Step by Step Radiofrequency
1 NO OBLIGATORY CONSULTATION
Firstly, you need to book a complimentary consultation with one of our highly experienced EF MEDISPA Treatment Coordinators. Your full medical history will be taken and the treatment will be explained thoroughly.
2 MEET YOUR Practitioner
If you decide to proceed with Radiofrequency you will meet with one of our Practitioners and have the chance to discuss the treatment in more detail.
3 DURING THE TREATMENT
Radiofrequency is a non-invasive treatment with no need for downtime. Controlled heat will be delivered to the body tissues in two different and distinct depths. Bipolar Radiofrequency is effective on the surface of the skin where it is thin and delicate targeting fine lines and wrinkles. On the other hand, Unipolar Radiofrequency helps to improve shaping and firmness by using alternate electromagnetic fields to cause heating and friction in the deeper layers of the skin.
4 AFTER THE TREATMENT
There is no downtime as it is a non-invasive treatment. Your Practitioner will assess the number of treatments that you will need to have for optimum results, but usually we recommend 6 treatments of each therapy.
What can you expect from a course of Radiofrequency?
Following an initial consultation, a highly skilled, specifically trained EF MEDISPA Practitioner will carry out the treatment. The tissue within the skin is precisely heated at the dermis (the inner layer of the skin) using the Radiofrequency system.
This can take up to 45 minutes in one session, dependent on the size of the area to be treated. It is a comfortable process and may at the most cause a slight redness for no more than 24 hours. You can resume your daily activities immediately after as no downtime is required.
How does Accent Radiofrequency work?
Harnessing Unipolar and Bipolar Radiofrequency to create a unique dual technology, Radiofrequency delivers controlled heat to volumetric tissue in the body at two distinct depths; the Bipolar targets the surface of the skin while the Unipolar penetrates to the inner layer of the skin at the dermis.
Bipolar Radiofrequency is effective on thin and delicate skin such as the face, making it suitable to target fine lines and wrinkles. Unipolar Radiofrequency helps to improve shaping and firmness by using alternate electromagnetic fields to cause heating and friction in the deeper layers of the skin. The procedure also increases the metabolism and secretion of fat.
Is this a safe treatment?
Radiofrequency is completely safe and incorporates the necessary safety precautions required.
Is Radiofrequency painful?
Little or no discomfort should be experienced with Radiofrequency, with patients often describing the feeling as a ‘warm massage’. Each person’s pain threshold is different but most people find the treatment easily tolerable.
When will you see the results from your treatments?
A course of treatments is usually required, with results starting to show as the course progresses.
