Trigger the natural production of collagen and elastin for tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
Sagging skin can be hard to deal with, especially since it cannot be easily targeted with diet and exercise alone. Wherever you find it—over the cheekbones, around your chin, under your arms, or along your waistline—loose skin is a struggle. In the past, surgical procedures or injectables have been the go-to solution for skin tightening. Fortunately, that isn’t the case anymore.
Non-surgical radio frequency treatments rejuvenate the appearance of skin by safely and comfortably heating the tissue under the skin’s surface. This triggers the natural production of collagen and elastin, the key building blocks of healthy, youthful skin. The result is effortlessly tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
Key patient benefits:
- Advanced RF Technology that delivers tighter, smoother skin
- Comfortable treatments with no downtime
- Safe and quick treatment sessions
- Safe for all skin tones

Can I do it during my lunch break?
Absolutely. Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes no longer than 45 minutes.
How often / far apart should the treatments be?
Treatments are done once per week.
How long does a treatment session last?
Each session lasts 15-45 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
Will it be painful?
Treatments are comfortable. Some say it feels like a relaxing hot stone massage. Some even fall asleep during the treatment.
How long will the results last and are they permanent?
The treatments are cumulative. After your final treatment, your results will continue to improve for up to 3-4 months. After that, your face and body continue to age, so maintenance is recommended once a month or every 3-4 months, depending on the person.
Do I need to do anything after my treatment?
No, you do not need to do anything after your treatment.
I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?
Yes. Venus Concept’s skin tightening treatments use technology that’s safe for all skin tones, even darker ones.
How many sessions will I need to see results?
Most patients receive 6-8 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?
Just make sure your skin is clean. Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your treatment. Remove all jewellery around the area being treated.
What does the treatment feel like?
The applicator will slowly get warmer till your skin reaches the needed temperature and stays within that temperature range. But if you do feel it’s too hot, just let the operator know and they can easily lower the temperature a bit.
How will I feel after my treatment?
You’ll likely feel relaxed. The treatment is virtually painless and has been compared to a relaxing hot stone massage. Some patients have even fallen asleep while they were getting treated.
Is there any downtime?
Absolutely no downtime. The treatment area may look a little flushed and warm to the touch, but this will go away within 1-2 hours. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
If I got a treatment on my face, can I put makeup on right after?
Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment.
