Injectables: there are alternatives! Posted on 03 Mar 11:51
If the thought of a cosmetic injection freaks you out more than a Paranormal Activity movie, relax… there are alternative ways to treat your skin.
I’m going to run you through three of the most popular alternatives that I’m more than happy to recommend and personally use.
ReFirme Skin Tightening
This non-invasive, FDA approved skin tightening procedure uses elos technology as it works towards providing you with a more youthful look. Thanks to this treatment, most benefit from a more toned appearance that gives them that added confidence boost they’re after.
Sagginess under the eyes and eyebrow lines, neck laxity… this virtually painless treatment works fast to combat these common ageing signs and is great for sagging and wrinkled skin. Most importantly, ReFirme is safe while being very effective. As a result, it’s gained international media exposure.

Collagen Induction Therapy
The idea behind Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is to build-up the connective tissue in the lower skin layers while at the same time, keeping the protective layers of the skin intact. It involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needle. To be honest with you, all of the written descriptions I’ve discovered for this treatment provides people with a rather scary picture.
If you are interested in CIT, you’re better off coming into the clinic to have a chat as opposed to reading far and wide and allowing that imaginative mind of yours to wander. But if you do want to read more click here
LED stands for light emitting diode and interestingly, this breakthrough treatment was first discovered by NASA. A real benefit is that there are few side effects and risks that surface with LED light therapy. Additionally, it’s non-invasive and there’s no need for recovery time post-treatment.
The process itself involves specialised therapeutic LEDs and specific wavelength bands that are used to rejuvenate the skin.
While tightening and firming the skin, this treatment also helps to combat:
- Wrinkles and any other ageing lines
- Blemishes and redness
- Age spots and hyperpigmentation experienced on the face, hands and neck
- Acne scars
