Skin Tightening

…. for firmer skin and a younger appearance!

Our Skin Tightening Treatments are based on a dual technology system simultaneously delivering Bipolar Radio Frequency (RF) and Optical Energies in a light-based therapy.  The treatments are based on proven results worldwide and involve NO downtime.

What causes the skin to loosen?

As we age the supporting collagen and elastin fibres in our skin lose their strength and start to break down.  Excessive sun exposure accelerates this natural breakdown of fibres.  Genetic factors and smoking can also have a detrimental effect.  When the skin loses its support, it starts to sag under the effects of gravity.

How does the technology work?

The simultaneously delivered Bipolar Radio Frequency (RF) and Optical Energies target the dermis to precisely heat the connective tissue fibres. In response, the skin’s weakened and now heat-injured fibres are replaced with new and stronger collagen fibres. This increased amount of new and stronger collagen fibres delivers more support for the dermis and a tightening and firming of the skin. The technology can be safely used on all areas of the body including the face, neck and abdomen.

How safe is it?

The technology is very safe and it can treat all skin types.  The Light and RF energies used in this technology have been safely employed for decades in medicine, surgery and aesthetics.  The technology has been approved by both the FDA in the USA as well as the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Australia.

Am I suitable?

Although all skin types and colours in both men and women are suitable, some contra-indications do exist.  These include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Concomitant use of Photosensitive Medications
  • Use of Roaccutane in the previous 12 months
  • Cardiac Pacemakers
  • Uncontrolled Diabetes

Please ensure you disclose all medical conditions to your consultant prior to any treatment.

How often are treatments required?

Naturally, the number of treatments required will depend on how much laxity your skin has to start with. Generally, however, a course of four treatments is recommended to achieve a noticeable improvement.  Top-up treatments may then be required to maintain the results.

What improvements are possible?

Some people see reductions in fine lines and wrinkles immediately after the treatment but these are actually due to temporary, minor swelling of the skin in the treated area.  Any such minor swelling will settle after 2-5 days.  However, it takes time for new collagen formation to occur and it can take anywhere between 3 and 6 months before you see a noticeable improvement.  Nevertheless, when it does you will notice an improved skin tone and a firmer, smoother and fresher-looking skin.
