Achieve a more youthful appearance
The Skin Firming treatment available at both GMC Cosmedical in Randwick and Narellan is based on the principle of selective thermolysis (i.e. using laser energy in special ways to selectively influence target tissue in a desired manner).
It utilises the newest laser technology, the Sciton’s BBL pulsed light technology, to deeply heat your skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface. This makes the Skin Firming procedure safe, quick and comfortable, and requires no downtime; the end result is a progressive tightening of the skin resulting in a more youthful appearance.
How does Skin Firming work?
The Skin Firming procedure uses laser light energy to deeply heat the connective tissue, causing partial denaturation and contraction (tightening) of the fibres and stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Both these changes lead to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse, protecting it while allowing the laser energy to do its work in the deeper dermis.
What is the treatment like?
The Skin Firming light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid and gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anaesthetic, however, we may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, actual time will depend on the area treated.
Patients may experience some mild redness in the treated area immediately after, however, this should return to normal within minutes. Since the Skin Firming procedure is non-invasive there is no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
What results should I expect?
The Skin Firming procedure is not a substitute for a face-lift and results may vary from patient to patient. The Skin Firming procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
What areas can be treated?
Skin Firming treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include:
How many treatments will I need?
A series of 3 treatments spaced a month apart is typical of most patients. The team will personalise a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire and may also combine Skin Firming with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalise your treatment. No special skin care regimen is required following treatment, however, you should always protect your skin from direct sun exposure and use a good sunscreen.
Fractora™ fractional radio-frequency treatment
Using advanced radio-frequency technology, Fractora™ provides a method of tightening the skin through stimulation of tissues. Not only can it help to tighten the area that is being treated but it is able to refresh the tone and assist in the healing of scars.
What can the treatment help to resolve?
Fractora™ can be used to stimulate rejuvenation in areas that are affected by acne scarring, fine lines, deep wrinkles, discoloured skin and minor pigmentation issues.
The treatment is most commonly used for the following areas:
- Lips and mouth
- Lower eyelids
- Upper eyelids
- Smile lines
What are the benefits?
There are a range of different benefits this treatment can have for you. Depending on the area being treated and your desired results, your treatment could have the ability to:
- Repair scar tissue
- Restore elasticity to the area
- Reduce signs of aging such as:
– fine lines
– deep wrinkles
– rosacea (facial redness)
– pigmentation discolouration
– broken capillaries (visible blood vessels)
Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue. Depending on the desired outcomes and treatment area, your Fractora™ treatment may vary in the depth of ablation, coagulation and heating.
How does it work?
Fractora™ gently probes the area producing heat and promoting remodelling of collagen. By delivering radio-frequency energy into the surface of the skin, the treatment has the ability to provide non-ablative to minimally ablative results to the depth of 1mm. By promoting collagen movement and production, the treatment is able to improve the appearance of the surface of the skin.
