Facial Lifting & Contouring at LAB Skin Clinic, Neutral Bay – Call 02 9170 4693
A Facial Lifting & Contouring Treatment at LAB Skin Clinic, Neutral Bay, is performed using the world’s most potent, yet safest, Protégé Elite Radio Frequency Skin Tightening & Facial Contouring aesthetic technology, you can rejuvenate your face, neck, décolletage and other small areas of your body.
Protégé Elite, radio frequency is the most powerful and yet safest radio frequency facial lifting and contouring technology on the market. It uses the very latest advances in radio frequency aesthetics technology to gently warm the skin and encourage new collagen growth (essential for youthful-looking skin).
It is a safe, effective and comfortable in-clinic procedure for facial contouring and skin tightening with no need for anaesthesia. It produces outstanding long-lasting results for firming brows, mid and lower face, jawline, neck, décolletage, small areas of the body and even the abdomen.
Protégé Elite facial lifting, contouring and tightening treatments are safe, easy, pain free and there is NO downtime. A single small area takes approximately 20 minutes with larger areas taking more time (your aesthetician will advise how much time you’ll need).
Optimum results are achieved with a series of between 2 to 4 treatments spaced two to four weeks apart. Unlike many other skin tightening devices, there is no downtime following treatment. Post treatment, the skin appears normal and there is no inflammation. As this technology works by stimulating new collagen growth (a process called neocollagenesis), results take time to develop. Typically, results are seen within a period of weeks and peak within 2 to 6 months after treatment.
Who can have Protégé Elite?
It is safe for most people. Younger patients with relatively good amounts of collagen and skin elasticity, or “spring back”, respond more readily to treatment and therefore these patients or those who have cared for their skin and so have more collagen will have more dramatic improvements. Patients with poor skin texture and who have not maintained collagen levels, may have more modest results or require more frequent treatments.
Anyone seeking skin tightening but hoping to avoid surgery should speak with one of our aestheticians.

Are there any risks with Protégé Elite?
The Protégé Elite has automatic shut-off safety features within the device, which differentiates it from other radiofrequency devices that may cause burns or pain, especially when treatment occurs over bony surfaces. Any adverse effects from Protégé Elite, if they do occur, will be very mild insofar as you may notice mild redness or a hive-like reaction – but it is rare.
What areas of the face or body will Protégé Elite treat?
Protégé Elite is a skin tightening, lifting and firming device. Many areas on the face and body may benefit from this treatment. Common areas of treatment on the face include the following area:
- around the eyes
- lower face
Protégé Elite can also be used on the body to tighten skin laxity including:
Can I combine Protégé Elite with other procedures?
Protégé Elite is an excellent complimentary procedure and is used as a nonsurgical alternative to surgical tissue tightening. Typically, cosmetic injections are avoided on the same day of treatment and are best completed at separate visits. However, other aesthetic services such as Oxygen hydration facials may be completed on the same day for even better effect, and Protégé Elite could be completed the same day as some laser or light-based procedures such as IPL, Omnilux or C&B Laser and Permea.
How does Protégé Elite work?
Protégé Elite is a monopolar radiofrequency device. Specialized, safe electrical energy is delivered by the Protégé Elite tip to the skin. A grounding pad, usually placed on one’s back during the treatment, ensures safe delivery of the radiofrequency. During treatment, radiofrequency energy flows from the treatment tip to the skin, warming the skin to approximately 42 to 44 degrees Celsius as it constantly glides over your skin in continual arcs and circles. The treatment feels like a warm roller ball floating over the skin’s surface. No pain medication or numbing cream is necessary. At this temperature, collagen undergoes structural changes. Over a period of weeks to months following treatment, new collagen growth is encouraged, leading to improvement in skin texture, laxity, and even wrinkles.
What is the cost of Protégé Elite?
Protégé Elite is priced as a package of four sessions to encourage the best results. Pricing is based on the area of treatment. Discounts are provided when multiple treatment areas are treated.
Protégé Elite leads to visible skin tightening effects but maintenance treatments are always encouraged. Typically, patients may have a “touch-up” session once or twice a year, although the frequency is highly dependent on the individual.
