Radio Frequency

Treatment description

Radio Frequency technology works by heating up the skin, the dermis in particular, to approximately 42 degrees using a treatment head with 3 or more poles emitting radio frequency waves. Overall, this results in a reduction of wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines.


This anti-ageing facial treatment is suitable for anyone, male or female who wishes to plump and tighten the face. It is also effective for the neck and décolletage, and can be combined with ultrasonic cavitation treatment on the body to tighten loose skin following fat loss.


It is not suitable during pregnancy, or for clients who have any metal implants/screws in the areas being treated.


Many patients can see and feel results after their first treatment, but these will be short lived, so a course of 6 treatments is recommended (once per week) to build up your collagen levels. You can then have top-up facials once every few months to keep your skin looking tight and feeling plump. The number of sessions required can vary depending on factors such as age, skin type, sun damage and visibility of lines and wrinkles. If you have particularly wrinkled or loose skin, you will probably want to have more than 6 treatments.

Block of 6 – £330.00

Carrie is absolutely amazing. She explains everything clearly and really makes you feel at ease. Today was my follow up facial after my initial block of 6. I could not wait to come back for my facial. The treatment is so relaxing and l have noticed a great improvement in my skin. My skin is looking tighter especially around the jowls. Absolutely delighted with the results.

I have been going to Stephanie for over 8 years now. She is amazing at what she does and wouldn’t go to anyone else. I travel all the way from East Lothian to see Steph because she is the best!

I am super pleased with the results of my first ever lip filler treatment. Following my initial consultation with Steph, I was 100% confident that I was in safe hands. I wanted a natural, subtle result (without the ‘you’ve had your lips done’ look!) and that’s exactly what I got. Steph knew precisely how to achieve the look I desired, based on my lip shape. I would highly recommend Steph to anyone looking to get their lips enhanced

Frequently Asked Questions

Ultrasonic Cavitation also known as Ultrasound Liposuction and Ultra Cavitation is a non-surgical fat removal procedure that uses scientifically proven non-invasive technology to break down unwanted fat whilst the radio frequency is a non-invasive heat treatment that helps tighten, contour and refine deeper lines of the skin over the face and body.

During your ultrasound cavitation treatment, a specially designed applicator selectively targets fat cells in the chosen body area without harming surrounding tissues. With no downtime, clients are able to lose up to 5cm from the first treatment and additional fat reduction continues during the weeks following treatment procedures.


The following areas can be treated:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Love Handles/Flanks
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Upper Arms/Bingo Wings
  • Bra and Backs Rolls
  • Buttocks
  • Chin
  • Face (RF only)

To maintain the results it is important to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly. It’s important to drink 8 glasses of water a day before and after the treatment. Fat elimination is accelerated by the amount of water your drink therefore, water is key component to eliminate the fat.

Unfortunately treatment isn’t suitable for everyone. Please check that your BMI falls in the treatable range and should be no more than 30. Significant obesity is outside the treatment range for the contouring and styling effects of ultrasonic liposuction. Also some medical conditions and drugs will make some patients unsuitable to benefit from treatments.

This treatment is not suitable if you are on your period as Ultrasound increases blood flow and this may feel very uncomfortable.


Most people find the treatment comfortable. Some heat and mild discomfort from the radio frequency waves may be experienced during the treatment, but it is generally described as a warm massage.

The procedure usually takes around 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the area being treated.

Some people may see minor immediate improvements, but the best results usually appear over the course of a few weeks to months as your body produces more collagen and elastin tightening the skin.

Possible side effects include redness, swelling, or a warm sensation in the treated area, but these are typically mild and resolve within a few hours.

Typically, a series of treatments are recommended for optimal results. This can vary based on your skin type and desired outcomes, but a general guideline is one session every week for around 6-8 weeks.

Yes, you can apply makeup or skincare products after the treatment, but it is recommended to let your skin rest and breathe for at least a few hours.


RF facial treatments are generally safe for all skin types, but it’s crucial to consult with a professional first to discuss your specific situation and potential risks.
