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, Radio Frequency Skin Tightening & Facial Contouring aesthetic technology… You can rejuvenate your face, neck, décolletage and other small areas of your body and results are immediately visible.
The radio frequency device we use at LAB Skin Clinic 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).
Radio frequency is a safe, effective and comfortable in-clinic procedure for tightening facial contours and neck with no need for anaesthesia. It produces immediate lifting and tightening results as well as outstanding long-lasting results for firming brows, mid and lower face, jawline, neck, décolletage, small areas of the body and even the abdomen.
Radio frequency 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 4 treatments spaced one to two 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 almost immediately and peak within 3 to 6 months after treatment.
Who can have radio frequency?
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.
Is this the best treatment for you?
You need a dermal clinician, who is qualified, skilled and experienced and who can de-mystify the variety of options and customise the best solution for your particular skin concern.
At LAB Skin Clinic you get a customised program of treatments that will deliver positive and effective long-lasting results.

Are there any risks with RADIO FREQUENCY?
The radio frequency technology we use 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, if they occur at all, 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 RADIO FREQUENCY treat?
Radio frequency energy is delivered into the skin to tighten, lift, firm and sculpt many areas of the face and body. Common areas of treatment on the face include:
- around the eyes
- lips and mouth
- lower face
Radio frequency is especially effective for use on the body to tighten skin laxity including:
Can I combine radio frequency with other procedures?
Radio frequency 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 radio frequency 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 radio frequency work?
We use a monopolar radiofrequency device. Specialized, safe, electrical energy is delivered via a handpiece 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 heated 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 radio frequency?
A program of radio frequency treatments 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 a treatment course of 4 is purchased.
Radio frequency leads to visible skin tightening effects but yearly maintenance treatments are always encouraged to maintain results. Typically, patients may have a “touch-up” session once or twice a year, although the frequency is highly dependent on the individual.
