What is Radio Frequency Lifting treatment?

RF treatment uses monopolar capacitively radiofrequency (RF) energy designed for skin tightening and firming around the face, eyes, neck and body. This non-invasive treatment safely delivers controlled RF energy to the deep collagen-rich dermis and subcutaneous tissues to stimulate and accelerate collagen production resulting in immediate and long term skin tightening effect.

An example of Monopolar RF treatment is Thermage FLX in Singapore. Other examples are BTL Exilis and Oligio.

How does Radio Frequency Lifting treatment work?

As we age, skin collagen deteriorates which results in in a loss of skin elasticity, worsening of skin sagging, fine lines and wrinkles.

RF treatment uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of the skin while the cooling tip cools the skin surface to make the treatment comfortable and to prevent overheating the skin surface.

This RF energy separates the water molecules from the fibrous collagen, causing an immediate skin contraction and skin tightening results.


Over the next 3-6 months, the secondary healing process continues as new collagen is produced and skin remodelling happens. This process results in further skin tightening and firming results over time.

What can Radio Frequency treat?

This treatment is suitable for treatment of all skin types. It is particularly suitable for patients above 30 years of age who are looking to improve overall skin elasticity to look more youthful. RF treatment such as Thermage FLX in Singapore is effective in improving a range of skin issues such as:

  • Loose skin on the face and neck
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores and uneven skin texture due to loose skin
  • Loose upper eye lids skin
  • Wrinkly skin on the body parts such as abdomen and upper arms

Radio Frequency Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How many sessions do I need?

Most patients can already appreciate skin tightening result immediately after one treatment. Skin will continue to improve for the next 6 months due to the continuous collagen production stimulated by the RF energy.

It is recommended to repeat the treatment once a year for long term anti-ageing purposes.

What is the downtime like?

Mild skin redness, swelling and soreness is expected immediately after RF treatment, which will usually subside within 2-3 days.

Patients can resume daily work and activities immediately after treatment. However, it is recommended to avoid prolonged or excessive sun exposure for 1 week following the treatment.

Is it painful?

RF treatment is a well tolerated procedure. Adequate pain control such as numbing cream and oral painkillers will be given prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.

Besides, the RF system incorporates vibration and cryo-cooling with each shot delivery, which has been shown to help in patient comfort. During each shot, you will feel a cooling sensation when the RF device touches your skin, followed by a brief deep heating and vibrating sensation. Immediately following that, there will be another comfortable cooling sensation.

Throughout the treatment process, the device’s heat level will be checked and adjusted to ensure optimal results and patient’s comfort.

Can I combine Radio Frequency with other treatments?

RF treatment can be done in combination with other energy devices and injectable treatments to tackle different skin issues. These are the treatments that are often done concurrently with RF:

Is it safe?

RF is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that has a good safety profile and track record. Over 2 million cases have been performed worldwide with over 50 published clinical studies. Complications such as skin burn are extremely rare.

Besides, AccuREP technology in RF device (for example Thermage FLX in Singapore) allows for automatic calibration to ensure safety and optimal results.
