For total rejuvenation and antiageing treatments, our skin rejuvenation and skin tightening treatments are designed to make an impact, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and make visible changes. The great thing is that downtime is low.
Radio Frequency skin tightening and rejuvenation, and Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) are highly effective antiageing skin treatments, able to address many skin concerns. SWiCH Dermal Rejuvenation offers a non-invasive alternative to antiageing rejuvenation treatments.
An initial consultation is recommended for all treatments to help find the treatment best suited to your skin needs and ultimate skin goals. You can drop us a line, or call us for more information.
What is Radio Frequency (RF)
RF is both rejuvenator and anti-ager that lifts, tightens and sculpts the face and neck. With no downtime, and immediate and ongoing results, it is a popular advanced skin rejuvenation treatment.
The face and neck are gently heated to around 40ºC, using gentle electrical current pulses. This heat initiates the rejuvenating processes in the skin and existing collagen fibres tighten immediately. The RF treatment also stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres.
Skin is tighter and firmer, more hydrated and plumped, and noticeably improved straight after the treatment. These improvements continue over the next 3 - 4 weeks.
At Dew, we use an advanced skincare machine, the 4th generation Apollo Duet, which combines multipolar RF and Electroporation. In combination, the result in not only tighter and firmer skin, but the ability to treat other skin concerns such as acne, pigmentation, redness, dehydration and lines.
The Electroporation component of the machine, uses microcurrents which temporarily open micro-channels in the skin's pores. This allows for greater absorbency of skin-correcting serums targeting the skin concerns above.
What does an RF treatment involve?
After double cleansing the skin, to remove any makeup, environmental dirt and debris, we apply a medi-grade serum over the entire face and neck. This is gently infused into the skin with Electroporation for around 15 minutes to ensure it gets to where it's needed most. This continues for around 15 minutes.
Next, during the RF treatment, sections of the face and neck are treated for approximately 5-10 minutes each, depending on the level of rejuvenation and skin tightening needed. Problem areas may be retreated during the treatment. A cooling, hydrating mask is then applied for a further 10 minutes which reduces any redness, bringing the skin back to body temperature. Three to five treatments, 28 days apart, are recommended for optimal results, then annually.
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a highly effective facial rejuvenation treatment. It improves overall skin tone and texture, minimises the appearance of pore size, fine lines and scarring. Skin condition improves significantly, appears more youthful, is more hydrated and brighter. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated resulting in firmer skin.
The treatment works by creating micro-channels in the skin with our CIT microneedling device. This stimulates the healing response of your skin cells to produce more collagen. During the treatment we are also able to use medi-grade skin serums to further enhance results, are target specific skin concerns such as wrinkles, hydration, acne, pigmentation and ageing.
We use Genosys medi-grade serums to enhance your results.
For your comfort, we always apply numbing cream, prior to starting the treatment. Aftercare instructions are given and post-microneedling skin care packs are available.

Swich Dermal Rejuvenation
SWiCH is a Circadia professional skin rejuvenation treatment that is non-invasive and results in tighter, brighter and younger-looking skin. The treatment supercharges and energises the skin at a cellular level, using highly specialised products. No machines or devises are used in this treatment.
SWiCH promotes healing and repair of sun damaged and ageing skin. There is no disruption to the outer layers of the skin, unlike microneedling, peels, or fibroblast plasma. Rejuvenation stems from increasing the energy in the cells beneath, which stimulate the production of collagen and tissue restoration. Finishing products further energise the skin and accelerate cell renewal.
Here's why we love SWiCH
there's no downtime
the treatment activates the skin's own repair system
it helps induce skin repair with minimal epidermal damage
the active ingredients provide continuous treatment for repair and restoration
it increases energy production in both the dermis and epidermis, which naturally decline with age
How many treatments will I need?
This will depend on a number of factors such as age, current skin condition, and the degree of rejuvenation you want.
A minimum of 4 x 1 hour treatments is recommended, and then the skin is reassessed and further treatments added if needed.
We recommend an in-clinic professional Circadia Enzyme Mask Treatment, two weeks after your SWiCH treatment, to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin.
