Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
Cosmetic treatments can seem like a daunting experience - even if it’s not your first time! Radiofrequency at EF MEDISPA is an entirely non-invasive procedure that will put all of your concerns to rest whilst still effectively targeting loose skin to help firm and lift.
The secret behind Radiofrequency’s success lies in the dual technologies of Unipolar and Bipolar Radiofrequency. They work in sync together, with bipolar targeting the outer layer of skin, where the fine lines and wrinkles are found, and unipolar hitting the deeper layer to shape and firm your skin from the inside-out. It uses heat to stimulate your skin cells, promoting the production of collagen and encourages any stubborn cells to release their pockets of fat to be naturally metabolised by the body.
Following an initial consultation, a highly skilled, specifically trained and certified practitioner at EF MEDISPA will carry out the treatment. This can take from 30 minutes up to 4 hours 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. Just like a slight touch of sunburn after a summer’s afternoon in the pub garden, no downtime is required, and you can carry on your daily routine as normal.

Radiofrequency is a non-invasive treatment with no need for anaesthetic .Your practitioner will use the Accent Radiofrequency machine to deliver controlled amounts of heat to your body focusing on the problem areas and targeting both the surface and deeper skin tissues. Most of our clients characterise the feeling of the treatment as a “warm massage”.

There is no downtime as this 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 a course of 6 treatments.
Before and After
Individual results may vary.
How does it work?
Radiofrequency delivers controlled heat to the body tissues using a combination of two different techniques to target two distinct tissue depths. Bipolar Radio Frequency is effective on thin and delicate skin such as the face, making it suitable to target fine lines and wrinkles. On the other hand, Unipolar Radio Frequency helps to improve shaping and firmness by using electromagnetic fields to cause heating and friction in the deeper layers of the skin. Even more, Radiofrequency can speed up your body’s metabolism and elimination of fat.
Which areas can be treated?
Radiofrequency for skin tightening is suitable for use on any area of the body that is suffering from skin that has become wrinkled, loose and thin. This includes:
- The chest, breasts, thighs and abdomen to firm the skin
- The face, under eyes, neck, under and upper arms, to tighten skin
- It is also an ideal postnatal or post-surgical treatment
Is it a safe treatment?
Radiofrequency is completely safe. It incorporates the necessary safety precautions required and has been used on thousands of patients worldwide.
Is Radiofrequency painful?
Only minimal 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 tolerate the treatment with minimal or no discomfort at all.
When will you see the results from your treatments?
As you progress through your course of treatments with Radiofrequency your results will become increasingly visible.
