We offer natural, non-invasive treatments using radiofrequency for skin tightening with no downtime.

As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which can result in a skin laxity. Radiofrequency energy helps to restore skin structure by increasing collagen production, helping skin to look tighter and more toned.
Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening involves using a handheld device that sends RF energy to stimulate collagen production to lift and tighten the targeted area. It can be used for the face, neck, chest and other areas of the body. The treatment is painless, and feels like a hot stone massage.
Radiofrequency microneedling has all of the benefits of radiofrequency skin tightening with the addition of collagen induction due to the microneedles. Adding microneedling enhances collagen production, which decreases appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps to smooth out any textural concerns and treat scarring, in addition to lifting and tightening the skin.
At Spark Health, we provide you with the highest quality personalized skincare and aesthetic treatments that leave your skin glowing, tighter and smoother.
RF skin tightening can be done on any skin type and color. Microneedling should not be done on patients on blood thinners, with active acne or skin cancer on the face, or who are pregnant or breastfeeding. RF skin tightening should not be done on patients with a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, a metal implant that interferes with transmission of energy, an embedded electronic device that sends or receives a signal pregnant or breastfeeding, or an allergy to gold or corn. Both procedures should not be done on patients that have taken Accutane in the last 6 months, have open lesions, or have a current Herpes Simplex outbreak. Tattoos may interfere with RF skin tightening treatment, depending on the area.
Avoid dermal fillers for 2 weeks before your procedure. It is recommended to avoid any skin exfoliants, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or vitamin A topical products 7 days prior.
For RF microneedling, downtime is very minimal. You can expect to be red with some sensitivity the day of your appointment. Most people will choose to avoid any social events or activities after treatment. You will appear lightly sunburned for 2-5 days. You may also experience dry or flaky skin for up to a week.
For RF skin tightening without microneedling, you may return to normal activity after treatment. The treatment area may be itchy; you may use a soothing, non-irritating moisturizer. Makeup, preferably mineral-based, may be applied immediately post-treatment. Use a sunblock with SPF 30 or greater to help prevent future sun damage.
