Skin changes that occur with age are an unavoidable part of life. Skin becomes thinner as we get older, with less collagen and fewer fat cells resulting in a less plump appearance. Sun exposure and environmental toxins contribute to the ageing process, resulting in skin wrinkles, age spots, dryness and pigmentation. Treating the superficial layer of skin is not enough, and advanced treatments targeting the deeper tissues is needed.
Apart from skin treatments, at Facelab, we provide access to several advanced body sculpting technologies. They include radio-frequency and ultrasound devices that specialise in fat elimination and dermal tightening and laser treatments targeting tissues in the dermis to stimulate new collagen production. Each problem area is addressed in a customised manner until we achieve the desired outcome for the patient. Whether you're looking for a fresh new face or the body of your dreams, our trained and experienced clinicians are here to help.
Tight Sculpting involves laser targeting of the fat below the surface and tightening of the skin to prevent sagging and wrinkling following weight loss. Tight Sculpting combines two procedures in one to eliminate unwanted fat and tighten the skin.
Simultaneous combination of radio frequency and ultrasound (RFU) enables the selective targeting of fat and skin layers through controlled heating and cooling, and helps address body concerns as well as tighten the skin by stimulating collagen production.

Body Sculpt is FaceLab's unique combination of both Laser and Radio-Frequency therapies to greatly reduce excess body fat and tighten/tone loose skin. As the two energy systems are quite different, there is an enhanced synergistic effect when alternating RF treatments together with Laser Tight Sculpting.
Utilises radio frequency to deliver controlled heating and cooling of the skin to various depths to tighten and tone the skin. The treatment aims to not only tighten the skin but to also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Common areas that the Protégé Elite can treat include the eye area, around the mouth, chin area, jawline and décolleté.
Along with skin treatments, at Facelab, you will have access to advanced technology to help reduce fat and improve your body shape. FaceLab utilises multiple radio-frequency and RF-ultrasound devices from BTL Aesthetics. This technology has been clearly shown to reduce body fat over time. Popular treatment areas include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, buttocks, arms, along with the face, chin, and neck.
Our body-contouring device, VANQUISH-ME, is entirely non-contact and non-invasive, which makes it the only hands-free and contactless body shaping device of its kind in Australia.
VANQUISH-ME offers several advantages over other forms of treatment:
As you get older, unwanted changes occur both on the surface and in the fatty tissues, muscles, and bones below the skin. These changes are often witnessed beneath the lower jaw, creating the familiar 'double chin' appearance. These changes can result in thick "jowls", deepened of the naso-labial folds, and associated hollows that appear in the upper cheek and temple region.
The age-related remodelling of your facial skeleton and subsequent change of appearance is often due to a reduction in collagen, and the loss of ligament and fascia elasticity in your face. These thin membranes are responsible for organising and compartmentalising the facial tissues. Over time, fat deposition, muscle tone loss, and gravity also contribute to the changes in your facial structure.
At FaceLab, we treat each problem area and patient with a unique customised approach. While laser therapy or fillers are recommended in some cases to obtain the desired result, a combination of skin tightening treatments may also be required.
FaceLab is proud to also offer advanced RF and Ultrasound treatment with BTL's Protege device. Protege is unique because it delivers radio-frequency and ultrasound to the target area simultaneously, which results in skin tightening and fat reduction.
The Protege treatment works by painlessly heating and cooling tissues at different depths of skin and underlying tissue. This process stimulates the breakdown of old and denatured collagen while simultaneously inducing the production of new healthy collagen. This process, called neocollagenesis, resulting in renewed skin elasticity.
The ultrasound component delivers energy with a specific wavelength and power ratio to target fat cells directly. There is no collateral damage to adjacent structures, with the energy absorbed within the walls of fat cells causing them to breakdown and release cellular components. These components, mainly trigylcerides, are then cleaned up by the body's natural metabolic processes and eliminated.
Results from Protege can be seen almost immediately in some cases, with most people experiencing positive results within seven days. We recommend repeating the treatment until the desired outcome is achieved.
RF ultrasound dermal tightening involves absolutely no downtime, which means treatment can be performed during your lunch break or before the working day.
