Skin Tightening

Skin tightening technology

Time takes its toll on even the most genetically blessed, but there’s a solution to aging skin: Skin Tightening treatments. If you’re looking to reduce wrinkles, stimulate collagen and reveal youthful skin without invasive surgeries, Skin Tightening is one of the best kept secrets of the beauty world.

Nude Beautique, Hong Kong’s leading beauty center, offers both men and women access to this transformative technology. Increasingly, celebrities and socialites alike have turned to non-surgical skin tightening treatments to revitalize skin without needles or surgery. Hence, there’s no downtime, because our Skin Tightening treatments harness revolutionary technology to target common signs of aging such as sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines. Unlike other invasive treatments, Skin Tightening unveils natural, youthful-looking skin — without any lumps, lines or scars.*

Skin Tightening is the most effective nonsurgical method for achieving a radiant, youthful-looking face, neck and hands. It is effective on all skin types and all skin colour and the list of benefits include:

Boosts Collagen: Thanks to innovative radiofrequency technology, Skin Tightening stimulates collage production for fuller, firmer skin and long-lasting results that look completely natural.

Lifted Skin: Skin Tightening noticeably reduces skin laxity for a tighter, youthful appearance. As an added bonus, it also improves skin texture and tightens pores.

Reduces Wrinkles: Boosting collagen production, Skin Tightening significantly smooths fine lines and wrinkles.

Face Contouring:  Whether you’re looking for a V-shaped face or simply want to correct uneven areas, ReFirm™ can help achieve a slimmer and more symmetrical face.

Instant Results: With Skin Tightening, results are instant and lasting. Even after the first treatment, you will see noticeable wrinkle reduction. In clinical trials, 90% of subjects reported that they were satisfied with the outcome.

Safe & Effective: By using Radio Frequency hence less optical energy, it results in a safer and more effective treatment.  The tried-and-tested Syneron’s ReFirme™ technology is also FDA-approved so you can rest assured knowing the treatments are completely safe.

No Down Time: Forget needles or surgery. The ReFirme™ Skin Tightening treatments are completely painless and non-invasive, which means you can go about your day immediately.

Why choose our skin tightening treatment?

You can seek out conventional laser and IPL treatments, but they can be significantly more time consuming – not to mention more painful. Skin Tightening, on the other hand, is virtually painless, fast and incredibly effective. Not only is the FDA-approved treatment safe, but it also works on all skin types and colors. Results are instant and you’ll walk away with firmer, tighter and more youthful looking skin after the very first visit. 

Nude's Leading Technology

Even though there are countless machines in the market claiming they can achieve optimal results, Nude only uses technology from the best. Nude is equipped with Syneron’s IPL system eMax™ which is of medical-grade and is FDA-approved. Syneron is recognized globally as a leader in aesthetic technology, and is arguably the best machine that money can buy. As the eMax™ technology is powered by IPL and Radio Frequency, it is proven to be both safe and effective.

Most importantly, our therapists are all professionally-trained and experienced to handle your treatments to ensure the best results for our clients.


As you age, skin begins to sag and fine lines appear. But what’s happening under the surface? Every year, an average adult loses more elastin fibers and dermal collagen. Collagen is like the skin’s scaffolding, and over time, collagen loss causes wrinkles and skin laxity. That’s where Skin Tightening comes in.

Working with the world’s leading innovators, Nude Beautique employs Syneron’s ReFirme™ technology. To stimulate collagen, the system utilizes elōs™ energy — a mix of bi-polar radio frequency and light energy. The powerful combination heats dermal tissues using an ergonomically designed hand-device to precisely target aging skin.

The device administers heat of roughly 45-50°C to penetrate the deep dermis layers where cell degradation occurs. At the same time, the skin’s surface remains protected thanks to an active cooling mechanism that hovers around 10°C.

In blind clinical studies, subjects reported statistically significant improvements in their skin laxity and wrinkle reduction, particularly around the cheeks, jaw and smile lines. After a full course of treatments, Skin Tightening will dramatically reduce fine lines, reduce wrinkles, tighten pores and improve texture — revealing smooth, luminous and youthful skin.


How long is a Skin Tightening Session?

Most people tend to treat the entire face and neck, which takes about 2 hours (2,100 flashes). If you’re just treating the face, then expect about 1.5 hours. For those with more specific target areas: It will take about 1 hour to complete half the face; 30 minutes for the neck; 45 minutes for the jaw; 30 minutes for eyes; 30 minutes for the forehead; and 30 minutes for hands.

What can I expect in my first Skin Tightening Session?

First, we’ll start with a consultation to assess your skin’s condition and learn more about your personal goals and concerns. After evaluating your face and neck, our expert therapist will decide which areas to target to achieve the desired results. She’ll then apply a gel to the Skin Tightening applicator and glide it over your skin, following your facial muscles in a strategic pattern that optimizes lift and contouring. The applicator will flash repeatedly, feeling like tiny bursts of warm light. We’ll focus on half of your face to start (or one hand), then show you the instant results before completing the other side.

Does it hurt?

It feels like warm pulses on their skin, so most clients find it completely painless. In very few cases, those who are extremely sensitive to pain or heat can find the treatments mildly uncomfortable.

How many treatments do I need?

It mostly depends on your skin condition and goals; however, the majority of our clients require just 4 Skin Tightening sessions. Each session will be 3-4 weeks apart, followed by a 6-month rest period. After that, we recommend maintenance treatments every 3, 6 or 12 months.

What kind of results can I expect to see?

Thanks to the revolutionary ReFirme™ system, our Skin Tightening treatments will stimulate collagen production. With more collagen, your skin will appear firmer, lifted, smoother and more youthful. In order to showcase the immediate effects, our therapist will treat one side of your face first (or one hand), and then let you see the results for yourself. Even after just one treatment, you’ll notice improvements in fine lines, wrinkles and elasticity — not to mention a visible lift.

Results will vary depending on the condition of your skin; however, the vast majority of clients see dramatic improvements after 4 treatments. Better yet, Skin Tightening continues to work for months after your treatment and often the best results appear 3 to 6 months later. At that point, we recommend maintenance treatments every 3 to 6 months to sustain results followed by a yearly visit.

How do I prepare for the treatment?

Skin Tightening harnesses heat energy to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, so we advise against all types of tanning ahead of treatments. Tanning will cause skin to be extra sensitive to heat, which can cause discomfort. In addition, it is best to avoid fragrant lotions and perfumes.

Are there any side effects?

There are no side effects or downtime since Skin Tightening is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment. In very rare cases, skin might appear slightly red immediately after the treatment. Any redness should subside within 30 minutes.

Is it safe to combine skin tightening treatments with laser hair removal or waxing?

As Skin Tightening and Laser Hair Removal treatments heat up the skin and cause sensitivity, we recommend waiting at least 2 weeks in between treatments to let skin rest. Otherwise, skin could be more irritable and sensitive than usual.

We recommend that clients wait at least 1 week between any face waxing and skin tightening treatments, because your skin will be extra sensitive.

Is it safe for patient with dental implants?

Yes, having and dental implants or metal fillings will not affect the treatment.

What should I know about post-skin tightening procedures?

After your Skin Tightening treatment, it’s best to avoid direct sunlight — that includes tanning beds, because the light will damage your new collagen cells. Your skin will also be sensitive to heat, because the Skin Tightening Treatment heats cells under the surface of your skin. Your skin will maintain an elevated temperature for at least 24 hours, so it’s important to wear high SPF sunscreen, use hydrating masks and continue your normal skin care routine.

Can I wear makeup right after Skin Tightening Face Treatment?

Yes, lip and eye makeup is totally fine. In the case that your skin appears more red than usual, we recommend waiting until the redness subsides before applying any foundation or blush.
