Most of our skin tightening treatments require you to book an initial free consultation with Sophia to discuss which treatment is best for you. Or drop us a line, or call us for more information, we’re always happy to help.
Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening
90mins | $280
Radio frequency (RF) is an advanced treatment that tightens, lifts and sculpts the face and neck. Three treatments 28 days apart are recommended for optimal results, then annually.
We use the Apollo Duet, which is advanced skincare technology that operates in two modes: smart radio frequency and electroporation. It can be used for combination treatments or individually, depending on your skin concerns.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Radio Frequency (RF)
RF delivers stable and equal energy to the skin, causing heat to build up where the skin and fat layer come together. This increasing heat changes the collagen deep inside the skin, inducing it to lose structure. The denaturation of collagen fibers causes them to contract and, responding to the perceived “trauma”, they start to stimulate the growth of new collagen. This results in firmer, tighter skin. There is no epidermal damage with this treatment, and therefore no downtime.
Electroporation momentarily opens the pores, increasing the ability of the skin to absorb corrective serums. This allows for effective treatment of many skin concerns such as acne, melasma, lines, or redness. Targeted medi-serums are used during this stage of the treatment, for optimal results.
Our RF/electroporation treatment is used for:

SWiCH Dermal Rejuvenation System
SWiCH Treatment | Enzyme Treatment | $235
SWiCH™ is a specialty facial treatment programme that results in tighter, brighter, and younger-looking skin.
SWiCH™ supercharges and energises the skin at a cellular level to promote healing, repair, and skin renewal.
SWiCH™ is an inside-out job, unlike dermal microneedling or chemical peels, which work from the outside-in.
Be one of the first in Kapiti to experience this new skin rejuvenation treatment for concerns relating to ageing/mature skin, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and skin tone/texture.
Benefits of our skin rejuvenation treatment
Activates the skin’s repair system to restore sun damaged skin and skin ageing changes.
Helps induce skin repair with minimal epidermal damage.
The active ingredients provide continuous treatment for repair and restoration.
The number of treatments required depends on various factors including your age, current skin condition, level of damage, and degree of rejuvenation sought.
A minimum of four SWiCH™ treatments is recommended, after which time the skin is reassessed. These are performed 28 days apart.
14 days after each SWiCH™ treatment, a raspberry enzyme facial treatment is required as part of the SWiCH™ treatment. This enhances the outcome by addressing exfoliation, and exterior skin cell turnover.

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is used to treat a variety of skin types and skin conditions. With microneedling, the skin condition improves significantly, appears more youthful, is more hydrated, brighter and firmer in texture and tone.
A course of three treatments, spaced six weeks apart, is recommended, then a maintenance schedule less frequently.
The skin conditions we can treat with microneedling are:
Microneedling creates thousands of micro-channels in the skin. This stimulates the body's wound-healing response, resulting in an increase in the production of collagen and elastin.
You will see improvements in fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, lip lines, sagging skin, deeper expression lines, and uneven skin tone in two to three consecutive treatments. Genosys medi-grade serums used include volumising, line reduction, and rejuvenating options.
Scars and stretchmarks
The wound-healing, rejuvenating response stimulated by microneedling includes breaking down scar tissue such as acne scars. The production of new collagen is also encouraged, building healthy, thicker and firmer skin in the scarred area. You will notice that the skin is smoother and far more even. We select a specialised needle “head” for scar treatment. Genosys medi-grade scar serum is used for enhanced results.
Microneedling is effective in treating pigmentation, including darker skin types (where lasers may not be the best option). The micro-channels encourage a more balanced and regular cellular function. As the direct target is melanocytes (pigment producing cells), a “repair and corrective” process encourages an even skin tone, creating a brighter appearance.
The production and distribution of collagen, stimulated by the wound-healing response created during microneedling, reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, promoting an even texture.
The micro-channels created during the treatment allow for active ingredients to be readily absorbed into the skin. We use highly active Genosys medi-grade serums during the treatment, with options for improving volume loss, redness, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scars or dry skin. We will select the serum that best meets your skin concerns on the day.

Fibroblast plasma is a revolutionary non-invasive cosmetic treatment, known for its success with non-surgical eye lifts, neck tightening and much more. It tightens and lifts the skin, reduces lines, wrinkles, and excess skin volume and rejuvenates the skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
At Dew, we use a plasma pen by German company PUREBEAU. PUREBEAU products are held in high esteem internationally as some of the finest and most precisely engineered products and machines available in the field of Plasma Skin Tightening.
Fibroblast plasma delivers results which rival surgical procedures, but with minimal downtime and without having to go under the knife! Completely safe, the procedure is suitable for most skin tones.
Fibroblast plasma is an ideal treatment for anyone who wants to achieve a smoother, more youthful complexion with results that look natural.
Treatments reduce crow’s feet, excess skin on hooded eyelids, sun spots, and smoker’s lines. Loose skin on the stomach and stretch marks can also be treated.
Treatment is delivered using the plasma pen. The device produces a tiny plasma flash between the plasma pen tip and the client's skin which tightens and lifts the skin. Results are noticeable immediately after treatment and will continue to improve as the skin heals and repairs with production of collagen and elastin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
In most cases only one treatment is required. However, depending on the area being treated and individual conditions, skin laxity and expectations, one or two post-treatments may be necessary. Additional treatments can be safely done at 10-week intervals after the initial procedure.
⚐ A CONSULTATION IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO ANY FIBROBLAST TREATMENT. THIS IS PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
As with most cosmetic procedures, clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the first 5-10 days. These include some swelling for 1-3 days afterwards, mainly with treatment of the eyelids. The treatment area will have small but visible brown dots, which will start to shed over the 5 - 10 days following treatment. To avoid further side effects such as hyperpigmentation, please follow all aftercare instructions provided.
WHAT ARE FIBROBLASTS?
Fibroblasts are cells found in the dermis. Both the number and production of fibroblasts decrease with age, resulting in a lower density of fibroblasts. Only the wound-healing process or an inflammatory response such as occurs with our fibroblast plasma skin tightening treatment, stimulates cellular division and regeneration. This produces new collagen and boosts elastin levels.
