Your Questions Answered
How does facial skin tightening compare to Fillers/Botox?
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles via a series of super-fine injections. Unfortunately, if injected incorrectly, botox can spread too far and impact muscles it wasn’t intended too (Ie: the droopy eyelid effect). Advanced Skin Tightening on the other-hand is a risk free alternative which triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the collagen and elastin production. Both treatments can be very effective. The treatment that’s right for you comes down to personal preference.
Can I have skin tightening treatments in conjunction with Botox?
Absolutely. Skin Tightening can be used on its own to tighten the skin and soften the appearance of fine lines, or in-conjunction with Botox. It’s a great way to complement and extend your botox out as stimulating the collagen and elastin has a ‘plumping’ effect on the skin.
Is it safe?
Yes! Our treatments are non-invasive – meaning the treatment does not penetrate the skin so there is no risk of infection or complication. The treatment is pain free with minimal side effects. All of our equipment is medical grade and registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).
Is it permanent?
While both botox and skin tightening both have a visible effect from the first session, unfortunately time waits for nobody – and so as the skin on our body and face continues to age, it’s important we continue to support it. Regular skin tightening stimulates the collagen reserves in our face, radically slowing down present and future signs of aging.
How long is each skin tightening treatment session?
Each session can last from 30 – 60 mins depending on the area.
Whats the difference between HIFU and RF?
HIFU uses Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the skin layers, specifically targeting the SMAS (muscular) layer of the face, the layer that controls the muscles and is manipulated during facial cosmetic surgery. Radio Frequency energy targets the superficial dermal layer of skin, stimulating collagen and elastin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Our expert therapists will advise which treatment is best for you or whether both are combined for maximum anti-ageing results.
Is it suitable for younger skin too?
Starting skin tightening treatments before wrinkles start forming can slow down the development of deeper wrinkles in the future and reduce the treatments needed down the track. It also has a hydrating and skin plumping effect leaving you looking fresher and well rested.
When will I start to see results?
Immediate results can be seen from the first session, such as a more hydrated, firmer and smoother skin. You can expect to observe immediate improvement to the reduction of bags and rings under the eyes and wrinkles. The first treatment consists of a flash-tightening effect and the results will improve as the sessions advance, the real result being obtained after 28 or 29 days when the activation of collagen is at its greatest.
What will I experience during the treatment?
Our skin tightening treatments are relaxing treatments. You will feel the sensation of heat in the area being treated with very little or no discomfort.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience some redness, swelling and a slight burning in the treated area after a procedure, but these symptoms should resolve themselves within 24-48 hours.
