Tighten without surgery
Improve your skin’s elasticity and promotes the production of collagen with our Skin Tightening treatments. Your skin will feel firm and taut, and lines will be reduced.
About Skin Tightening
Laser Skin Tightening uses leading laser technology to heat the skin surface to 41 degrees - 65 degrees underneath the skin in the epidermis/dermis layer to promote collagen production. The heat will then metabolise unhealthy fibres and cells causing stimulation to the fibroblast cells (these produce collagen and elastin fibres). This process works to smooth fine lines, wrinkles and improve the overall texture of the skin. Laser Skin Tightening can be used in any area where there is a loss of collagen.
The procedure is quick and comfortable, with minimal downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does skin tightening work?
Laser Skin Tightening is designed to stimulate dermal collagen production and help with the regeneration of damaged skin cells. Skin tightening works on both Type 1 + Type 3 collagen which is a fibrous protein, found in the extra cellular matrix (Dermis). This treatment involves heat energy being delivered into the skin to penetrate deep down whilst protecting the upper visible layers and keeping them intact. It does this by deep thermal effect within the dermis causing collagen contracture and denaturation. This will then induce growth factors and stimulate new collagen synthesis which will then replace the old collagen with new fibres that are more compact and organized to give a less wrinkled appearance. Results are seen 3 months post treatments.
How many Skin Tightening treatments are required for best results?
For optimum results, we recommend a minimum of 4-6 treatments done at monthly intervals. Maintenance treatments are recommended to upkeep results. Our experienced team of Skin Therapists will tailor a treatment plan to deliver on your skin goals.
Is there any downtime with Skin Tightening?
There is no downtime with this treatment. You may experience some redness and swelling on the treated area, but this completely normal and usually subsides within 3-5 days. You may continue to have a warm sensation on the treated areas for 24-48 hours after your treatment. We advise you to follow the correct aftercare directions as provided by your Skin Therapist.

This treatment can be done on most body areas. The most common areas include the face, neck, décolletage, and stomach.
I am currently taking medication. Can I still have this treatment done?
Certain medications can cause the skin to be photosensitive. To avoid adverse reactions from occurring, we advise you to seek medical clearance from your GP prior to proceeding with the treatment.
