The non-invasive radiofrequency treatment uses electromagnetic waves to penetrate into the skin. RF waves pass through the most superficial layers of the skin into the deepest layers of the dermis and epidermis. Since radiowaves are not of light origin, they are not absorbed by cellular melanin and so can be used on all skin types any time of year.
Radiofrequency stimulates collagen and elastin production which will tighten and firm the skin. It is a painless treatment with no downtime. There will be some visible results immediately but the best results take 3-6 months, the time it takes our bodies to make collagen.
The effects of radiofrequency
- Immediately, the contraction of collagen induces remodeling and tightening of the skin.
- Long term, the protein released by the thermal effect stimulates fibroblast production (the cells that produce collagen in the tissues)

Since tighter skin is a sign of youth, the results are great for anyone concerned about fine lines and wrinkles. RF is also a great treatment for areas on the body with loose skin, like the arms and upper knees. The lift achieved by radio frequency is referred to as "mini lifting” in Hollywood. Immediately after the first session you can see the results. Many well-known actresses choose this treatment before hitting the red carpet, probably the worst kept secret in Beverly Hills!Book an Appointment
