Hi Carin, thank you for the question.

There are a number of skin tightening technologies on the market today and each will have their own treatment prices.

I use Syneron’s eMax which has two different technologies: Refirm (Infrared and Bi-Polar Radiofrequency) and Matrix RF (Fractional Bi-Polar Radiofrequency).
We charge per area for Refirm and prices range between R 550.00 to R 850.00 per area with a total of 5 sessions required 4 weeks apart. A greater degree of skin tightening and lifting will be achieved with the Matrix RF (including wrinkle removal) and one usually treats full face, neck, etc. and not specific areas only. We charge R 2,800.00 per session and a minimum of 3 sessions are required 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Other technologies include:

Thermage and treatment prices vary per area – as an indication full face will range between R 20,000.00 and R 25,000.00 for one session.

Titan’s (Infrared) prices will vary between doctor and area but one can expect to pay between R 2,500.00 to R 10,000.00 per session and a total of 3 to 5 sessions may be required.
