Lift Jowls, Tighten Arms, and more with Infrared or Radio Frequency Skin Tightening.
At Light Touch Med Spa, we offer our clients two primary forms of professional skin tightening treatment! All of our locations, Mississauga, Oakville, Milton, Waterloo, Markham, and Orlando, offer high-quality treatments that will aid you in reaching your cosmetic goals.
First, our Radio Frequency body contouring treatment, using the Reform™ system, are one of our most popular cosmetic services at our clinic, as this method offers safe and effective skin tightening, and even weight loss, results.
Second, our Infrared Skin Tightening treatments, using the Harmony XL Pro laser system, provides an effective, safe and non-surgical method to reverse the signs of sagging from ageing and loss of elasticity in the skin. The treatment is fast and although it gives comparable face-lift results, is a fraction of the cost of plastic surgery (with no downtime or anesthetic involved!).
Overall, our infrared and Radio-Frequency treatments offer effective results for our patients, with noticeable effects taking place in the treated skin immediately afterwards and for many months afterwards. Don’t waste your time on using costly skin creams or serums that take daily application to produce minuscule improvements, instead visit us at LightTouch for a few skin tightening treatments and achieve noticeable results in no time!
Radio Frequency (RF) Reform™ System
What Happens During Radio Frequency Treatments?
Using the cutting-edge technology of the Radio Frequency (RF) Reform™ system, LightTouch offers effective skin tightening results on patients of all skin types. The system uses patented UniPolar™ technology, which produces dielectric heating to break up fat cells below the epidermis. This method not only improves the look and texture of older skin, reducing cellulite and enhancing skin tone, but has the power to reduce the overall volume in stubborn fat deposits. This method can also improve the body’s circulation as retained fluid is drained from the subcutaneous adipose tissue (cellulite) to reduce edema, erythema and overall volume and stimulates collagen production, all at the same time!
When treatment begins, our highly trained medical practitioner will adjust the frequency of the machine to start application on the skin. You can expect to feel the heat on the skin, but it should not be a painful sensation. If you are experiencing any discomfort, let your practitioner know, and they will adjust accordingly.
What Happens During Infrared Skin Tightening Treatment?
During infrared skin tightening treatments, the Harmony XL Pro Laser sends a beam of high-intensity infrared light that deeply penetrates the skin to gradually heat the sub-dermal tissue beneath. This laser technology helps the body jump start its own natural healing abilities to rejuvenate the look and feel of skin.
This light beam heats up the water that is in your skin, while the deep heating effect stimulates the production of collagen in the body, causing it to contract and tighten immediately, producing quick and effective results. The procedure usually takes between ten and thirty minutes, depending on the area(s) being treated.
What Parts Of The Body Can I treat?
When it comes to radio frequency skin tightening with the Reform™ system, these treatments can target almost all facial and body skin imperfections. This method is suitable for all skin types, and even works on thin and delicate areas. Infrared skin tightening with the Harmony XL Pro can treat virtually any part of the body, thanks to the laser system’s unique light technology and two distinct applicators for the face and the body.
At LightTouch, our clients’ most popular treatment areas include places with visible ageing signs due to lost elasticity such as jowls, droopy mouth corners, falling eyebrows and thin turkey necks. Upper thighs, the abdomen and the arms are also highly popular parts of the body that both skin tightening treatments can affect, creating firmer, tighter looking skin overall. Our medical practitioners can work with you to create a treatment approach, using one of the two methods, to achieve your desired aesthetic targeting the specific parts of your body.
Why Use The Alma Brand Of Laser Systems For Our Treatments?
Both the Harmony XL Pro and the Reform™ were developed and produced by one of the leading laser brands throughout the cosmetic and medical spa industries, Alma Lasers. At LightTouch, our five Canadian locations and two American locations, all utilize Alma systems as this brand offers the safest form of laser treatments, producing the most effective results, at the best price for our patients. Both machines have been extensively used in the cosmetic field, successfully completing millions of treatments worldwide, for many years now.
Are These Treatments Safe?
Our skin tightening treatments have FDA approval and offer a safe and effective method of enhancing skin health and stimulating collagen production in the body. It is essential to receive treatments from a reputable medical spa to guarantee your safety. All of our clinics are made up of a team of medical practitioners who have the certification, knowledge, and skills, to administer treatments safely and professionally, so you are in good hands!

How Many Treatments Are Needed To See Results?
Clients that undergo radiofrequency skin tightening treatments typically notice tightening of their skin immediately after the completion of their treatment. Further results will become even more apparent within 24 hours post-treatment as the body’s lymphatic system works to flush out the affected fat tissue. Results will vary depending on your overall skin health, with repeat treatments recommended to reach optimal results.
The number of infrared skin tightening treatments a client generally needs depends significantly on the area being treated and the condition of the skin in that area. Typically a series of 6 treatments spaced at 4-6 week internals is required to achieve the optimal desired result of smooth, tight, firm skin and the results can last up to two years after the treatment.
What Benefits Can Be Gained With These Skin Tightening Treatments?
Laboratory testing has proven that in approximately 6 months, you will see added increased tightening and firming results because your body’s natural healing process will also produce new collagen, but at a slower rate to further tighten the overall appearance of your skin. In other words, clients notice an immediate improvement following their treatments; however, they always see further improvements develop gradually over a period of 5-6 months after as their new collagen is formed and therefore skin tightens further.
Is There Any Pain Associated With This Treatment?
Although the odd client may find this procedure to be uncomfortable depending on their pain threshold, most people would call both forms of treatments painless. Usually, only a warm sensation and feeling of heat can be felt on the area being treated. After the procedure, clients may experience a lingering warmth with slight swelling or redness, but this quickly disappears within a few hours of the treatment. On very rare occasions, patients may develop small blisters or burns on the skin, usually on parts of the body that are more boney, such as the forehead or jawline, but these symptoms should heal within a week’s time.
There is minimal downtime associated with both skin tightening treatments, and typically, patients can immediately go back to their daily routine upon the completion of either forms of skin tightening treatments. However, we advise our clients to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water after Radio Frequency treatments to help the body’s lymphatic system drain out excess adipose tissue.
Are There Any Contraindications For Skin Tightening Treatments?
Individuals that are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breastfeeding, should not undergo either radio frequency treatments or infrared treatments. Those who are generally healthy, and do not possess any skin diseases or infections in the targeted area should be clear to receive infrared treatments.
When it comes to radio frequency skin tightening performed with the Harmony XL Pro, individuals with implantable medical devices, such as a pacemaker or pins or plates, or posses collagen vascular diseases, autoimmune diseases, or connective tissue or muscle disorders should not undergo this treatment. If you have the Herpes Virus, a flare-up could occur.
