Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening in Bentleigh, South East Melbourne

Radio Frequency skin tightening, also known as RF facial tightening or RF skin tightening, is a non-invasive procedure that helps with cell regeneration and increased collagen production.


This anti-ageing procedure combines skin needling with fractional radio frequency to target loose skin, wrinkles, and visibly enlarged pores associated with ageing skin. At DerMission Skin Clinic in Bentleigh, South East Melbourne, we offer advanced radio frequency skin tightening treatments to help you achieve a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

How Does RF Skin Tightening Procedure Work?

RF skin tightening is an effective non-surgical treatment for tightening the skin and addressing various concerns. Radio-frequency devices use low-frequency electromagnetic waves at safe levels to produce controlled heat within the targeted areas. This heat will penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and trigger the release of heat shock proteins. It will catalyse the skin’s healing response, increase collagen production and help to tighten the loose skin. The proteins will give skin cells more strength and flexibility. Consequently, the skin’s laxity is restored, and it regains a firmer and more resilient texture and appearance. Skin tightening has three major effects
  • Tissue retraction: The heat generated will immediately tighten the skin
  • New collagen formation: By heating the dermis, new collagen production is stimulated
  • Improved circulation: Skin tightening improves blood and lymphatic flow
  • Needling: To create microchannel and let the heat penetrate up to dermis layer
During the procedure, the following steps will be performed:
  • Before the procedure, your skin undergoes a thorough cleansing and sterilisation process.
  • A hand-held radio frequency electrode device will be stamped over the treatment area
  • The energy heats the underlying layers, stimulating collagen production and causing the skin to tighten over time.

The Duration of the Effects of Radio Frequency Skin Tightening:

The duration of the effects of radiofrequency skin tightening can vary depending on individual factors such as age, skin condition, and lifestyle. In general, the results of RF skin tightening can last for several months to a year or more. To maintain optimal effects, periodic maintenance treatments may be recommended. Our experienced professionals at DerMission Skin Clinic can guide you on the recommended treatment frequency for long-lasting results.

What Is the Typical Recovery Process After Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?

Recovery after radio frequency skin tightening is generally straightforward, and it may vary based on the size of the treated area. Here are some key points:

  • Mild redness and warmth: Immediately after the treatment, you may experience mild redness and warmth in the treated area, which is a normal response to the radiofrequency energy. 

  • Quick return to normal activities: Radio-frequency skin tightening is known for its minimal downtime. You should be able to resume your daily activities within a day after the treatment. You can apply makeup immediately after the Dermapen micro-needling procedure.

  • Uncomplicated recovery: The recovery process is usually uncomplicated if the treatment area is small.

  • Post-treatment care: After the treatment, specific instructions will be given to you for post-treatment care. This may include recommendations for skincare products, sun protection, and avoiding excessive heat or exercise for a short period.

  • Persistent redness or swelling that lasts for several days after the procedure.
  • The development of a skin rash or unexplained changes in your skin’s appearance.

When you promptly inform us about these symptoms, we can assess your condition and provide appropriate guidance or further medical attention if necessary.

Benefits of RF Facial Tightening

  • Skin tightening: Radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tissue remodelling. This leads to tighter, firmer skin, reducing the appearance of sagging or loose skin.


  • Wrinkle reduction: By stimulating collagen production, RF facial tightening can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can smooth out crow’s feet, forehead lines, and other facial wrinkles, giving the skin a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


  • Non-invasive and safe: Unlike surgical procedures, radio-frequency facial tightening is non-invasive and does not require incisions or anaesthesia. This means there is minimal risk of complications and virtually no downtime associated with the treatment. It is generally safe for most skin types and can be performed on various areas of the face and neck.


  • Natural results: RF facial tightening promotes the body’s natural healing response and collagen production. This means that the results are gradual and natural-looking, without the artificial appearance often associated with surgical procedures or injectables.


  • Improved skin texture: In addition to tightening the skin, RF energy can also improve the overall texture of the skin. It can reduce the appearance of acne scars, minimise enlarged pores, and enhance skin tone and smoothness.


  • Quick and convenient: Radiofrequency facial tightening is a relatively quick procedure, typically lasting 30 to 60 minutes per session. It can be easily incorporated into a busy schedule, as there is no downtime required. To achieve optimal results, it is generally recommended to undergo multiple sessions of Dermapen micro-needling.


  • Long-lasting effects: While individual results may vary, the benefits of RF facial tightening are long-lasting. The stimulation of collagen production can continue even after the treatment sessions, providing ongoing improvement in skin tightness and texture over time.
