Radiofrequency Facials at Sparx Skin Clinic in Winchester
Skin Tightening Treatments
One of our most popular treatments is the RF Facial using the Lynton ProMax Lipo system to deliver smoother, younger-looking skin.
The ProMax Lipo facial skin tightening and contouring system is ideal for people who want to lift the skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck or jowls. It is a relaxing treatment which is completely safe and has very little or no downtime.
Environmental and lifestyle factors affect our skin daily and can result in premature signs of aging including sagging skin, lines and wrinkles. As we age, levels of collagen and elastin within our skin gradually decline as our bodies stop producing them. These natural proteins are vital for giving your skin strength and elasticity, helping it to bounce back and look smooth.
ProMax Lipo stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin within the dermis to tighten the loose, crepey skin that can develop as we get older. It will improve your skin's tone and texture to leave you with a fresher, tighter and younger looking complexion.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Near Me
How Does Radiofrequency Skin Tightening Work?
Radio frequency (RF) is one of the most effective skin tightening treatments available. It uses radio waves which, when absorbed by the water in the skin, create energy which then turns into heat.
The heat stimulates the cells that make collagen and elastin, called ‘fibroblasts’. Over a course of treatments, the collagen and elastin builds, firming and tightening the skin. To see the full impact, it often takes at least six treatments, although many people experience a slightly tighter, firmer, brighter skin in the first few days as the heat causes the skin to contract and tighten.
By stimulating the natural production of collagen within the skin, RF facials produce natural looking results with little or no down time required.
Are RF Skin Tightening Treatments Suitable For Everyone?
Most people are suitable for treatment and would benefit from this gentle procedure. It is particularly beneficial for people who have developed jowls and loose skin around the jaw line and it is also a good option for reducing fine to medium lines around the eyes and mouth. Please note that it is designed to soften your wrinkles rather than removing them. See also the contraindications noted in the FAQs below. We will carry out a full consultation prior to treatment.

ProMax Lipo RF Facial FAQs
What should I expect after my ProMax Lipo RF Facial?«
Immediately after treatment, contraction of collagen fibres improves skin elasticity and the skin should appear firmer.
The treated area may be pink for a short time after treatment, but this is painless and will subside quickly. There is no downtime required and you can resume your normal activities immediately.
We recommend that you drink increased quantities of water for a short period after your treatment to encourage the body's removal of fat cells, which are metabolised and passed into the urinary system.
Are there any contraindications for ProMax Lipo treatments?«
Unfortunately, people with the following conditions are unlikely to be suitable for treatment:
We will discuss your medical history with you at your initial consultation and advise whether it is safe for you to proceed with a RF Facial.
How long will the treatment take?«
The treatment time depends on the size of the area to be covered, and can be as little as 10 - 20 minutes. We will advise you at your initial consultation.
Is ProMax Lipo RF skin tightening painful?«
No, this is a relaxing treatment and no anaesthetic is required. There is no downtime afterwards either.
How many treatments will I need?«
For best results we recommend 3 to 6 treatments. Although you will see an immediate improvement after treatment, your skin will continue to improve over time afterwards as your natural collagen and elastin increases following the stimulation.
Are there any side effects to an RF Facial?«
Side effects are generally very mild and can include itching, numbness, slight heat, soreness, redness and light swelling in the treatment area, which resolve quickly.
Less common side effects can include mild bruising or blisters in the treatment area, but these occur rarely and resolve fairly quickly.
We will let you know what to expect at your initial consultation.
Why do I have to have a consultation before treatment?«
Your pre-treatment consultation is an important part of the process so we can assess your suitability and ensure you area good candidate for ProMax Lipo. This is for your safety. We will ask you about your medical history and ask you to complete and sign a consent form.
