Skin Tightening (Face)
One of the very latest aesthetic treatments available at Illuminate, the Profound RF works to tighten loose or sagging facial skin and improve skin texture using a combination of radiofrequency and microneedling technologies.
It works by penetrating the skin at a precise depth with tiny needles, before momentarily releasing a burst of radiofrequency energy to heat the skin. The deep skin tissue is heated to exactly 67 degrees Celsius and held at this temperature for a number of seconds. The process awakens your body’s own natural healing process by stimulating the production of three skin elements – collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, resulting in a tighter, smoother, more lifted appearance.
For milder skin resurfacing, the Venus Viva combines NanoFractional Radio Frequency and Smartscan technology to stimulate fibroblasts and rebuild collagen, helping to re-surface the skin. Safe and effective for all skin types and tones, this treatment is given via a handheld device and can also be used to reduce acne, rosacea, pigmentation and wrinkles.
Skin tightening with radiofrequency technology is a non-invasive treatment that addresses lines and wrinkles and the early signs of loose or sagging skin.

How does this skin tightening treatment work?
The Venus Viva device uses NanoFractional Radio Frequency to deliver heat through the skin’s surface. This is done via tiny needle-shaped pins which create very small wounds that the body naturally heals, re-generating collagen and repairing existing damage to the surface of the skin.
What happens during my skin tightening treatment?
A numbing cream will be applied to the skin prior to treatment. You will be lying down during the treatment itself.
Will I feel any pain or side effects?
You may feel soreness during treatment and some minor redness of the skin immediately after treatment.
Who is this skin tightening treatment suitable for?
Anyone wanting smoother facial skin, reduced pores or to reduce the effects of acne or rosacea. It is also excellent for treating stretch marks on the body.
