TIGHTEN’s radiofrequency head gently heats your dermis to the optimum level to produce new collagen. The new collagen improves the underlying structure of your skin – resulting in a tightening and lifting effect.
During the treatment the radiofrequency handpiece is continuously moved in circular movements over the treatment area, while a gel is used to aid the movement. The focused heat penetrating your skin will cause it to redden slightly and the collagen will contract, tightening and lifting the skin. The procedure is comparable to having hot stone massage, so you should find it to be comfortable and relaxing. Immediately afterwards you can return to work or social engagements.
You’ll see an immediate lift, caused by the contraction of the skin collagen, after your first treatment. However, this post treatment response only lasts up to 2 days. With subsequent, repeated treatments you will build the long lasting result as more collagen is produced. Full results are seen 3-4 months after a course of 6 treatments. Results can last 1-2 years depending upon your lifestyle, but you can maintain your results with a top-up treatment every 3-6 months.
