Advanced & Highly-Effective Cosmetic Devices


RF devices, or radiofrequency devices, are cosmetic systems that use radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the skin. Treatments with RF devices stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin to produce a more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime.

We offer radiofrequency treatments with industry-leading devices that include Pelleve® and the Venus system. Pelleve® offers non-surgical facial skin tightening, while Venus offers comprehensive face and body solutions to address a range of concerns. In addition to short-term skin tightening benefits, these treatments stimulate collagen production for long-lasting improvements in skin laxity. For this reason, they are an excellent alternative to surgery for any patient who wants to achieve smoother, tighter and younger-looking skin.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Radiofrequency Device?

Radiofrequency devices are aesthetic systems that can be used for a variety of treatments. Their applications include skin tightening, fat reduction, collagen production and most commonly, facial rejuvenation.

Are RF Devices Effective?

Yes! RF devices use gentle, typically non-invasive techniques to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin. This process can tighten the skin, reduce fat and even stimulate collagen production for long-lasting cosmetic benefits. RF devices are a great option for patients who want cosmetic results without the use of surgery.

How Often Should You Do RF Treatments?

Although RF devices and their treatments require little to no downtime, it is still recommended to take a few weeks between radiofrequency treatments. This gives the body enough time to reap the full benefits of treatment before beginning another treatment session. However, treatment length and frequency will vary depending on the treatment and the patient’s treatment plan, so be prepared to discuss your RF treatment schedule during your consultation.
