Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio Frequency is one of the most effective skin treatments for improving on the surfaces texture and elasticity without having to go under the knife. This non-invasive treatment is ideal for tightening areas of the face that are sagging or creasing. If you’re looking for a procedure that turns back the years while also giving you a beautiful glow, Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is the one for you.
Elastin and collagen are two of the bodies most vital proteins; collagen keeps the skin firm and supple, while elastin keeps it tight. As we age, we begin to decline in both, resulting in sagging skin, lines, wrinkles and even a dull complexion. Because of this, more and more collagen renewal treatments are flooding the industry, and Radio Frequency Skin Tightening has to be one of the most prestigious.
How Does Radio-Frequency Skin Tightening Work?
ProMax utilises safe and effective Radio Frequency technology. The radiofrequency energy is applied to the skin using a specialised device, causing it to heat gently. This then stimulates a process often referred to as ‘wound healing’. The body’s natural healing process begins to take its course now that the heat has caused trauma to the surface and tissues.
This, and the heat, are both recognised by the brain which then signals the cells in the deeper layers of the skin to produce fibroblasts, which then, in turn, produce new collagen and elastin cells; all playing a part in the healing course. Over time, the collagen and elastin cells begin to grow, so your skin will continuously tighten, look fresher and smoother for months on end.
The ProMax system here at Clinic10 is particularly effective for fine lines, wrinkles, lower face slackness and overall skin tightening.
Our Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Service Process
A consultation procedure prior to the treatment is compulsory. The consultation is conducted by one of our clinicians, and you will be required to provide us with a medical history so that we can confirm that you are suitable for your chosen treatment. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to voice any concerns or questions that you may have.
A patch test is also required before any treatment. Our consultations are usually informal but thorough. Before proceeding, you will be asked to sign a consent form; this consultation form will be sent to you upon booking through our website.
We are a team of dedicated, and fully qualified and experienced clinicians who all have the same goal as you: to meet your desired results. Like you, we want you to feel confident in your skin, so we will make it our mission to exceed your expectations in doing so.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening FAQs
Here are the answers to the most common questions we hear about Radio Frequency.
As a non-invasive skin tightening treatment, downtime and side effects are minimal but like with any procedure, there will be some side effects. These side effects can be and are not limited to redness, contraction and tenderness. The redness will only last for around 1-2 hours post-treatment, and contraction of the skin can appear as a fresher, tighter look and feel.
The real results of RF Skin Tightening show around six months after a course has been undergone, and the collagen and elastin have fully grown. Generally, a course of 6 to 8 treatments is recommended at 2-3 weekly intervals. After a course of treatments, results are expected to last between 1 to 2 years; however, we do recommend maintenance sessions around once every 1-3 months to hold your optimum results.
A thin layer of contact lotion is applied to the problem area, and a handheld applicator delivering RF current is moved in a circular motion over the surface while it begins to heat the skin. The desired skin temperature is reached quickly and then maintained for 3 to 4 minutes.
Typically, each treatment session lasts between 45 to 60 minutes. After the treatment, the contact lotion is removed, the skin is cleansed, and a serum suitable for your skin type and one that is high in SPF is applied.
The treatment is not considered painful; most clients actually comment on how pleasurable and relaxing the heating sensation is due to the multi-frequency technology of ProMax.
In terms of aftercare, you will be given instructions for you to follow so that you encourage the best possible results. Immediately after the treatment, you will experience a mild sunburnt sensation for a few hours; this tends to get hotter over the 12 hours following treatment. The area of skin may also be red and swollen for 1 to 2 days.
Do not fear; this is normal as it is a sign that the skin is healing at a deep level. Swelling is likely but minimal and will resolve in 2 to 3 days. As the healing process begins, your skin may become 'bronzed' or patchy; this appearance lasts from 3 to 10 days, depending on the treatment level. The new renewed surface of the skin will also naturally exfoliate for a few days.
The results of Fractional Laser Resurfacing are impeccable; clients are left with smooth, clear and plump skin that looks years younger.
ProMax is particularly effective on fine lines, lower face slackness and overall skin tightening. We can easily create each and every client a bespoke treatment plan so that we can focus on their primary concerns. Whether that's the eyes, around the mouth, the jawline or a full face and neck procedure, we will deliver you your desired results by maximising your treatment time.
We also carry out weight loss body treatments with Promax Radio Frequency Skin Tightening.
