What Is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?
Radio Frequency is a proven skin tightening technique that is used to target sagging skin all around the face, jawline, jowls, neck and decolletage. It works best on patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid 30's to 50's, of all skin tones and colours. It can be used on the forehead, under-eye area, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line and neck to tone, firm and tighten loose skin as well as diminish enlarged pores and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Radio Frequency is also used to tighten skin around the body, achieve fat reduction and body contouring and is particularly effective on underarms (bingo wings), buttocks, chest, stomach, back, hips, knees, and thighs. Radio Frequency can also be used to specifically target areas of Cellulite and Stretch Marks with considerable success.
It works by delivering heat to the deepest layers of skin which triggers collagen production thus resulting in skin tightening as well as fading scars and tackling Cellulite and Stretch Marks.
Female Patient, Radio Frequency
"Thank you so so much Ita. I can't tell you the number of compliments I have gotten over the last two weeks on my skin. It's been 8 weeks since I had the PRP done and I've never felt as confident. As you know it was my treat to myself on hitting the big 40! The best money I have ever spent. Also, I loved the Radio Frequency done by Alison".

Skin Tightening FAQS
Is Radio Frequency Safe & How Does It Work?
This procedure is completely safe and is FDA approved.
Radio Frequency treatments work by delivery of energy (in the form of heat) to the dermis (the deepest layer of skin) and sub-dermal layers without damaging the top layer of skin or epidermis. Heating in this area causes collagen contraction, realignment and new collagen production which continues to build over several months. By promoting the production of healthy collagen, Radio Frequency treatments can help to firm and sculpt your face and body resulting in tighter, younger looking skin. Full results are noticeable approximately 2 -3 weeks after treatment.
Are Skin Tightening Treatments Sore?
At The Otto Clinic we use Accent Radio Frequency which is one of the most advanced machines available in the market. This revolutionary device ensures that patients will not experience discomfort during either facial or body treatments.

How Long Will The Skin Tightening Effects Last?
We recommend three treatments and the results should last approximately 12-18 months. Repeat treatments are advised to maintain the results.
What After-Care Is Needed?
Because no external wound is created, Radio Frequency treatments are ideal for patients who cannot set aside healing time as required by surgical procedures. Patients can therefore return to everyday life immediately.
How Often Should I Have The Treatment Done?
Our experience to date has indicated that patients achieve a greater degree of tightening after three treatments however, as with all our treatments, your Otto Clinic Consultant will advise you of the treatment frequency required, depending on your skin condition, to maintain your improved appearance.
Who Is Not Suitable For Radio Frequency & Are There Any Side Effects?
Patients with pace-makers cannot be treated as the Radio Frequency machine may interfere with these devices. It is not advised for patients who are pregnant to undergo Radio Frequency treatments.
