Some of the best radiofrequency devices for achieving skin-tightening and anti-ageing results for the face

1 Opatra Dermisonic II

Opatra’s non-invasive Dermisonic II helps lift, re-contour and improve the overall appearance of skin for a younger, firmer look. The five-in-one handheld device with changeable skin rejuvenating treatments delivers a targeted combination of red, blue and green LED light to work beneath the surface of the skin. In synergy with vibration, heat therapy and RF, the device helps improve skin hydration and supports healthy skin function with regular use. It can be used in a clinic, salon or by clients at home.

2 Venus Viva

The Viva RF device has two radiofrequency applicators. One is MP2 multipolar RF for skin tightening, which has an inbuilt thermal sensor to get real-time thermal feedback. A course of six to eight is recommended and a quarterly top-up to maintain results. The other applicator is nano fractional RF, which delivers results on textural irregularities including acne scarring and enlarged pores.

Trade: £33,000

3 Lynton Focus Dual

Focus Dual has two technologies for nonsurgical skin lifting, firming and tightening of the face and body: radiofrequency microneedling (RFM) and high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). Heat is targeted directly to the deepest layers of the skin, while the upper skin remains intact, resulting in almost no downtime. Varying needle depths, RF settings and HIFU focal depths allow the skin to be treated at every layer, offering customisation. Its ability to reach the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) layer offers enhanced results, since this is the layer of skin tightened by plastic surgeons during cosmetic surgery.

4 Zemits Crystal Frax

This device provides long-lasting skin tightening for all skin types. With deep-stimulating nano-electrodes, fractional RF provides controlled dermal damage and boosts further neocollagenesis. The device allows deep skin rejuvenation without impacting the skin’s surface as the multiple smooth RF pins cause thermal stress to the dermis in microscopic, targeted zones. The intact surrounding tissue helps increase the skin’s recovery process. Crystal Frax delivers RF energy in pulsating and continuous modes for better results within a shorter treatment session than traditional bipolar RF.

5 3D Aesthetics 3D Dermaforce

3D Dermaforce uses radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to stimulate the body’s natural healing process to encourage collagen production in the dermis resulting in rejuvenated and tightened skin. The RF energy is delivered through the insulated needles, allowing precise delivery to the dermis while protecting the epidermis. The RF wave penetrates the basal melanocyte barrier, heating collagen fibres in the dermis to 55–65ºC, increasing cell turnover.

6 BTL Exilis Ultra 360 System

Exilis Ultra360 is the third generation of BTL’s system for skin tightening and deeper fat reduction for the face and body. The FDA-cleared device combines monopolar radiofrequency and ultrasound and has been clinically proven to achieve a 35% reduction in skin laxity and 42% wrinkle reduction, 19% increase in skin density and an improvement in soft cellulite. On the face it is particularly effective for tightening around the eyes and for lifting the jawline and neck areas. It reaches therapeutic temperatures quickly, meaning treatment time is short.

Trade: from £35,000

7 Lumenis NuEra Tight with FocalRF

NuEra Tight, powered by FocalRF technology, uses multiple RF frequencies, enabling use for several indications, skin conditions and body areas in the same session. Safe and effective with no downtime, this non-invasive treatment delivers natural-looking, long-lasting results and feels like a hot stone massage. With high frequencies and precise temperature control, NuEra Tight can stimulate the activity of fibroblasts and enhance blood flow. This creates an immediate smoothing effect that will keep improving as the body’s healing mechanism generates new collagen production, improving signs of sagging skin and wrinkles.

8 Cynosure Potenza

By combining microneedling and RF, Potenza offers faster and stronger results than using just one technology at a time. Potenza can treat enlarged pore size, scarring, pigmentation, stretch marks, loss of elasticity, rough skin, active acne, acne scarring and general skin rejuvenation. The device is customisable and safe to use on all skin types and colours. There is a two- to three-day period of downtime where the client’s skin may feel dry and have redness. Potenza treatments are recommended four to six weeks apart.
