What is Rf Skin Tightening?
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is one of the most talked about treatments around! RF Skin tightening is an advanced scientific method of tightening and toning loose, saggy skin or aging skin with Radio Frequency energy. Treatments are nonsurgical, painless, and do not require any downtime, RF can be used in any area of the body to produce firmer, more youthful looking skin.
Who is RF (Radio Frequency) Skin Tightening for?
RF Skin Tightening is best suited to people with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid-thirties to fifties, with any skin color. A course of 6-10 treatments is usually required to achieve desired results. Results achieved range from 30-50% improvement.
Radio Frequency skin tightening is suitable for – ANTI-AGING SKIN, FACE WRINKLES, AGING SKIN
RF can also be used in conjunction with ultrasound cavitation to aid in a further fat breakdown and also to tighten the skin in the same area the cavitation treatment has taken place.
How does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening work?
This treatment tightens the skin using Bi-polar radio wave frequencies which vibrate the water in the dermis causing friction and heat which causes the collagen to contract and become more compact leading to a dramatic tightening and lifting effect. Unlike laser/IPL treatments which tend to be absorbed or scattered by the upper layers of the skin and can cause some burning, RF skin tightening can work into the deeper layers of the skin without doing harm to the upper layers.
An RF hand piece is slowly moved over the treatment area, transmitting an oscillating current of low-level radio waves, to the deeper layers of the skin. The current causes the skin to heat between 39-42 degrees Celsius. This heat- a controlled trauma, stimulates the skins natural wound healing response, in turn stimulating collagen and elastic, which plumps and lifts the skin.
Tissue Retraction: The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibers, to immediately tighten the skin.
New collagen formation: By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated. This tightening effect is delayed and may take 3-6 months to be visible.
Improved circulation: RF will also improve the blood and lymphatic flow. This helps with a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance to further reduce the effects of aging.
Clinical research has shown that the bulk heating of the connective tissue in the lower layers causes the skin to tighten.
RF skin tightening is achieved by the effect of the heat on the collagen fibers which causes them to lose their long fiber structure and shrink into more compact from. This causes an increased tension within the skin which achieves the effect of tightening.
Common Treatment Areas Include:
Tummy- post pregnancy
under the eyes
The neck and décolletage.

Ultrasonic Cavitation or Ultrasound Liposuction is one of the latest, non-surgical fat removal procedures. It does not involve surgery, anesthesia or hospital stay and no recovery time. The results are quite immediate.
Ultrasonic cavitation is very much similar to mesotherapy or Lipodissolve as it is a preferred treatment for cellulite known as localized adiposity.
Ultrasonic Cavitation uses low-frequency sound waves to destroy intractable fat cells. The common problem areas which are treated using this technique are the buttocks, abdomen, love handles, saddlebags, upper arms, inner knees and male breasts.
You will see immediate results after the first session, with optimum results soon after the next 2 to 5 sessions.
How does Ultrasonic Cavitation work?
A sound wave with a rating of 40 KHz to 5 MHz is used in ultrasonic treatment. This type of sound wave helps to destroy the fat cells without causing any damage to the surrounding tissues or organs. Thus, storage of fat is considerably reduced or eliminated.
Benefits of Ultrasound Cavitation Liposuction Treatment:
Permanent removal of fat cells on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks, upper arms and other areas
Significantly improves the texture of the skin, body contouring and reshaping, circulation of lymph and blood, cellulite therapy and tightening of connective tissue
Enhanced effectiveness when performed in combination with Lymph-Drainage Wave Six Treatment,
Does not involve surgery
Do not cause pain or anesthesia
Tri-polar Radio Frequency or RF
Tripolar RF helps to metabolize the large granules of fat that were broken up by the cavitation treatment. Due to intense heat, the collagen fibers tend to contract and tighten in the subcutaneous and dermis layers. When the fibroblast metabolism gets increased, new collagen is produced. This results in a smoother and stronger skin.
- A lifted contour
- Reduction in deep wrinkles
- Thicker and stronger skin
- Promotes new collagen protein which causes the strengthening of the skin.
Lipolysis or Mono-polar Radio Frequency combined with cavitation) is a procedure that causes the remaining adipose tissue to break up, removes the triglycerides as well as tightens the skin.
The sub-dermis, where cellulite is present, gets heated due to the ultra power mono-polar radio frequency waves. This further causes tightening of the cellulite tissues.
Results of cavitation therapy
Various factors including your age, metabolism, hormonal changes, medications, tissue structure and treatment area will influence the results. To achieve and maintain the results, it is vital to follow a healthy diet and regular exercise. The treatment is extremely comfortable and hassle-free.
Follow a low calorie, healthy diet and drink at least 8 glasses of water a day before and after the treatment. This helps to eliminate the fat.

Stretch MarkS TREATMENT
Stretch marks, or striae, are a form of skin scarring associated with pregnancy, obesity, puberty, and short-term weight gain from bodybuilding and other physical activities. They form when the dermis – the middle layer of the skin that maintains shape and elasticity – is stretched more than it can tolerate. Connective fibers in the skin eventually break, disrupting collagen production and causing scarring. This scarring may be treatable only through stretch mark removal.
While there are many suitable candidates for stretch mark removal, the most common patients are women who have recently given birth. Stretch marks and pregnancy usually go hand in hand – almost three in four women will experience stretch marks after pregnancy. These women usually suffer from belly stretch marks, but other areas may also be affected, resulting in the need for mommy makeover surgery. Other candidates include people who have lost significant weight and bodybuilders who have quickly developed significant muscle mass.
Causes of Stretch Marks
Both men and women are susceptible to stretch marks, particularly on the thighs, hips, arms, buttocks, abdominal area, and lower back. There are several causes of stretch marks, including:
Genetics: Women are more likely to get belly stretch marks if their mother, for instance, had stretch marks after pregnancy. Significant weight gain and loss: Your skin stretches as your weight fluctuates, sometimes resulting in stretch marks.
Puberty: Growth spurts during puberty often result in stretch marks as the skin is unable to keep up with the body’s rate of growth.
Bodybuilding: Rapid development of muscle mass may stretch the skin beyond its limits.
Corticosteroids: Heavy or long-term use of oral or topical corticosteroids, a widely used pharmaceutical steroid compound, can lead to stretch mark formation.
Ethnicity: People with darker skin are less likely to have stretch marks.
Stretch Marks after Pregnancy
Stretch marks after pregnancy are particularly common. Nearly three in four women will develop stretch marks on their legs, abdomen, hips, and other areas of the body affected by weight gain during pregnancy.
During pregnancy, the skin expands and stretches to its limit, causing tiny tears in the supporting layers of skin. These tiny tears are stretch marks that appear as glossy, white streaks in the skin. Many women who have stretch marks after pregnancy turn to laser stretch mark removal to eliminate this unwanted scarring. This treatment is designed to give women the renewed, youthful appearance they desire.
Areas of the Body That Can Be Affected by Stretch Marks
Stretch marks can affect any area of the body in which the skin is subject to rapid stretching. The abdomen is the area most often affected by stretch marks, but they are also common around the thighs, hips, buttocks, lower back, arms, and chest. Skin in all these areas is subject to high stress as a result of heavy use and rapid expansion. Theoretically, any area of the body could be vulnerable to stretch marks if the skin is stretched enough as a result of tissue expansion.
MICRO NEEDLING :In my office we have been getting excellent results in the treatment of stretch marks by using 1.5 mm needles combined with human growth factor serums. We use motorized micro-needling, not the derma roller, for a more even and more effective result. Rollers such as the Derma roller create a more erratic pattern of “tears” through the skin rather than the clean, more evenly distributed punctures seen with motorized micro-needling machines. Because micro-needling has been shown to enhance delivery of topically applied skin care products, we combine micro-needling treatments with human growth factor serums to get the best results.
Chemical peels are most commonly used on the face to treat WRINKLES and AGESPOTS but they can be used on other areas of the body for stretch mark removal. In the chemical peel procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin using a sponge, cotton pad, cotton swab, or brush. The types and strengths of the chemicals in the solution vary according to the individual patient’s needs. The chemicals essentially peel off the top layers of damaged, dead skin and activate new skin cell production. Patients might feel a stinging or burning sensation during treatment. The recovery period depends on the patient’s skin type and the strength of the chemicals administered, and multiple treatments may be necessary to achieving optimal results. It’s important to bear in mind that a chemical peel will not remove stretch marks completely; however, they usually fade as a result of treatment, and patients emerge with smoother, healthier, more youthful looking skin.
Both micro dermabrasion and chemical peels improve the appearance of stretch marks through the removal of the skin’s top layers. Chemical peels achieve this goal by using chemicals to “burn” the top layer away while micro dermabrasion uses a fine crystal spray to “blast” the outermost layers of skin. Dead skin cells are removed and new, healthy skin cells take their place. The new cells produce more collagen and last in, two vital components of smooth, young looking skin. Micro dermabrasion is a painless procedure that takes no more than an hour to complete and involves little recovery time. An additional five to twelve treatments are needed to reap the maximum benefits of the procedure. Keep in mind that, although microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of scars, it is not an effective means of complete stretch mark removal.
Mesotherapy can have an effect on the collagen and inelastic thickening during the mechanical skin damage by the needle. The needle is placed along the whitish line of the striae. In the skin recovery process the sting activates the natural processes that increase the level of the new collagen and inelastic. There is a lot of debate on how effective is the active substance used in mesotherapy. Newer cosmetic mixtures use hyaluronic acid, tretinoin, growth factors.
HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND
Only ONE treatment for AMAZING RESULTS! First machine in the valley!! Making Skin Listen With Sound!
Put aging skin back in its place — without a surgical face-lift. Sagging skin gives you tired-looking eyes and distorts the contours of your face at the chin and neck. High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) lifts and tightens skin for a non-surgical face-lift and neck lift. Since its release in 2012, Ulthera (Ultherapy) has been quickly growing in popularity with experts worldwide as an advanced HIFU device.
Ulthera is FDA-approved to lift the skin on the face and neck.
Common treatment areas include:
Brows and forehead
Neck (“turkey neck”)
Ulthera or Ultherapy is one of the most popular and highly developed systems available. Non-invasive ultrasound energy generates low levels of heat in the targeted skin. This stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue rejuvenation. With just one treatment, HIFU pushes mature skin to start working hard again. Smoother, firmer, and brighter skin in the months after treatment.
Your eyes will look more open, brows more lifted, fine lines softened, and pore reduced. Because of the restored elasticity, your skin will feel softer and more supple, too. If you don’t think you need surgery yet or simply hate the thought of the knife, HIFU may be the natural facelift or neck lift alternative for you. Don’t let gravity get you down. (Sorry for the puns.)
Drooping, especially around the mouth
Loose neck folds
Thin, creepy skin
Fine lines and wrinkles
Minor redness and dryness
Uneven skin tone or texture
What is High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound?
HIFU is a non-surgical face treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift muscle and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime.
What is unique about this procedure?
HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. It is also the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
What kind of technology does HIFU use?
HIFU uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology, which has received FDA and Health Canada clearance for use in this new type of medical procedure.
What does the HIFU therapy do?
HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin to contract the facial layer as well as stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. As a result, skin will actually begin to lift and tone over time.
What does collagen do? How does HIFU stimulate the creation of collagen?
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. HIFU jump starts a repair process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Is HIFU surgery?
No. Unlike a face lift, HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the skin and support layers below it but doesn’t entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Can HIFU replace a face-lift?
HIFU is an “uplift”, not a “face-lift.” While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for a face-lift or those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How is HIFU different from lasers?
Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). HIFU addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that lifts and lends support to the skin. Therefore, the two technologies are quite complementary!
Is HIFU safe?
The procedure has been cleared after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
How long does the ultrasound treatment take?
A full face treatment takes 45-60 minutes, and a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 30 minutes—neither with any downtime.
Is there any downtime?
HIFU is an entirely non-invasive procedure and as such, there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.
Who is a good candidate for HIFU?
A good candidate for HIFU is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point of looking and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
While HIFU is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
What problem areas does HIFU target? What kind of results do you get?
HIFU addresses mild to moderate loose or sagging skin. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, HIFU will lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall. As well as full face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, tummy, inner thighs and knees.
How long until I see results?
Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.
How long do results last?
Patients treated with HIFU still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure and can continue for up to another year depending on the condition of the skin. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
Will I need more than one treatment?
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen- building process).
Will I feel the ultrasound during the treatment?
Yes. What you are feeling during the treatment is actually tiny amounts of focused ultrasound energy being deposited below the surface of the skin.
What does it feel like?
Patients have noted there can be some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Is HIFU painful?
Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, but there can be some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Your practitioner will consult with you prior to your skin treatment to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. The feeling of a muscle workout soreness is common but relieves itself quickly.
