Hello and welcome to Lift Aesthetics Sydney. My name is Dr Elizabeth (Liz) Golez @drlizgolez, and I’m passionate about advocating all things women's health! My background is in general practice, obstetrics, and most recently as a Senior Cosmetic Practitioner.
I’m so grateful to have experienced such a unique combination of health care practices. My journey has led me to a deep founded belief that women’s health doesn’t need to be complicated, avoided, kept hidden, or unattended to.
Be it skin related matters, or intimate areas (yes, I’m talking about your vagina! Get used to it, I’m not afraid of that word and I don’t want you to be either), I'm thrilled to introduce you to Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling. This exciting breakthrough in skin rejuvenation can address skin concerns from your head to your toes (and every part in between!).
I’ve witnessed many patient transformations through specialised treatments performed with the devices I’ve chosen to house at Lift Aesthetics Sydney (the Morpheus 8 and Morpheus 8V… yes, that’s V for vagina!), so I’m inspired to tell you more.
Come and meet me at my brand-new clinic in Sydney’s Bondi Junction, where my caring team and I can unveil the secret to YOUR youthful skin!
Q. What is Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling?
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling is a revolutionary skin tightening modality. Cutting edge devices by INMODE combine the power of radiofrequency and micro-needling to remodel your adipose tissue. Put more simply, these machines penetrate your skin and reach the fat cells that promote collagen production, resulting in significant skin tightening.
Q. What sets the device used to perform Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling at Lift Aesthetics Sydney apart?
The device Lift Aesthetics Sydney use to perform Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling is recognised as the safest and most efficacious skin tightening modality globally. Men and women prefer this treatment over more invasive options because of its revolutionary technologies ensuring the highest levels of safety, reduced downtime, and the most outstanding, natural looking results. The customisable depth of the needles in the device we use (Morpheus8 by INMODE), is the game-changer. Such precision means that our Practitioners can tailor treatments to even the most intricate and delicate body areas and skin concerns.
Q. How does Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling work?
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling takes standard microneedling a step further. Traditional methods rely solely on micro needles and the skin’s natural healing process to stimulate collagen production. RF microneedling has the added benefit of delivering energy through your punctured skin and deep into your tissue for more powerful outcomes.
Q. What are the results after a Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment?
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling achieves effectual skin tightening and overall rejuvenation that truly makes a difference. You can achieve improved skin texture, reduced signs of ageing, textural evenness, and decreased hyperpigmentation. Results are often described as noticeable, yet natural, allowing you to embrace the reality of having healthy, youthful skin.
Q. How long does it take for Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling results to take effect?
You’ll observe significant improvements to the texture, tone, and overall appearance of your skin approximately 3 weeks after your first treatment, with best results occurring at the 3 mark. By your second and third sessions, your skin will have had time to begin rebuilding collagen, and your results will become more noticeable. Your skin will feel tighter and supported from the inside out. The texture of your skin will be more refined and the tone increasingly even.
Q. What skin concerns can Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling address?
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling is suitable for addressing signs of ageing, cellulite, acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, deep wrinkles, pore size, thinning skin, and skin laxity. One of the wonderful benefits of Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatments is that it’s a minimally invasive technology. This means that it can be used almost anywhere on your body. It can even be used to enhance the cosmetic appearance of your vagina!
Q. How long do the results from a Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment last?
After each Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment, the deep subcutaneous layer of your skin will continue remodelling, making gradual enhancements that last up to three months or more. For optimal results, I recommend a series of three Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatments spaced one month apart. New collagen takes around four weeks to fully form, and a minimum of three treatments yields the best results possible. Additional sessions can be scheduled to further develop your results, depending on your starting point and unique aesthetic goals.
Q. How long does a Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment take to have done?
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatments are minimally invasive and relatively quick, depending on the skin concern you’re addressing. Commencing with cleansing, disinfecting, and numbing the area, your procedure will take between half an hour to an hour. The timing will be more specifically indicated during your consultation.
Q. Is Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling painful?
Rest assured that at Lift Aesthetics Sydney, you’ll receive personalised care and attention throughout your Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling journey. Your safety, comfort, and satisfaction are our highest priority. We offer prescription grade numbing cream and other methods of pain relief to assist with any anxiety or discomfort you may feel during treatment.
Q. How old do I need to be to have Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling?
Lift Aesthetics Sydney provide Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling for patients who are 18 years old and above.
Q. What do I need to keep in mind after having a Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment?
Immediately after having your Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment, you’ll be given aftercare instructions which are important to follow. Your treatment area must be kept clean to evade infection and be sure to drink plenty pf water. Refrain from using active skin care, strenuous exercise, saunas, sweating, skin exfoliation, and alcohol for the first 24 hours. Some medications, excessive sun exposure, certain facial products, fake tan, and aesthetic treatments should be avoided for up to 2 weeks. Allow your skin to settle naturally, and if you have any questions or concerns, we ask you to call Lift Aesthetics Sydney.
Q. Are there any contra-indications that would stop me from having Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling?
If you’re pregnant, breast feeding, have a history of cancer, diabetes, experiencing active acne, inflammatory lesions, active herpes labialis, localised infection in the treatment area, warts, eczema, psoriasis, extreme keloidal tendencies, or have had certain cosmetic treatments within the preceding 4 weeks, Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling might not be the ideal way for you to achieve the results you’re after. Rest assured, there are usually several suitable alternatives which will be discussed during your consultation.
Q. What are the side effects after a Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment?
It’s understandable that you might be feeling apprehensive about downtime but remember that when your body ‘responds’ to the treatment, it indicates the deliberate, controlled injury caused by the Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling has done its job. Jumpstarting collagen and elastin production can induce temporary swelling, redness, and possible spot bruising. These effects are normal and typically subside within 3-5 days. On the fourth or fifth day post treatment, your skin might start to flake, and depending on the body area treated, a crust like texture could form. Usually within a week, your skin will start revealing its new revitalised, youthful condition!
Q. What are the adverse reactions to look out for after having Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling?
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling has been deemed safe by the TGA, and when performed by an authorised, experienced Practitioner, you should expect no major or harmful side effects. Adverse reactions are rare, including bruising, and lumps under the surface of your skin. There's usually no bleeding during Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling, but sometimes, deeper treatments could cause this. Any other risks will be discussed during your consultation. Allow your skin to settle naturally, and if you have any questions or concerns, we ask you to call Lift Aesthetics Sydney.
Q. How can Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treat my vagina?
Morpheus8V by INMODE utilises a specialised, one-of-a-kind handpiece that can be used intravaginally.
Q. What vaginal concerns can Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling address?
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling empowers Practitioners to empower women. It successfully addresses concerns such as incontinence, muscle atrophy, and a weakened pelvic floor. Stimulating collagen within the vaginal wall increases lubrication, strength, tone, youthfulness, confidence, and an overall sense of femininity.
Q. How often do I need to repeat Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatments?
You’ll love the results from your Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment so much that the recommended 12 – 18-month maintenance program (after your initial 1-3 sessions), will be something you look forward to! Subsequent sessions prolong the benefits of Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling, and ensure your skin continues looking its best.
Q. How can I be sure that Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling is right for me?
Come and see us for a consultation! We can talk more intimately about your specific concerns and goals, take a closer look at the areas you’d like to have treated, and explore some of the incredible before and after results experienced by other patients.
