Skin Resurfacing

Advanced skin resurfacing technology using the Etherea®




Afterpay options available. Talk to the team to learn more.

This non-invasive resurfacing treatment uses advanced radio-frequency (RF) technology to improve the skin’s tone and texture for a smooth complexion.

Unlike lasers that destroy the outermost layer of skin cells, sublative RF minimises surface disruption and creates maximum desired impact in the deeper layers which instantly triggers the skin’s own healing response, stimulating the production of regenerative tissue. The skin then rapidly deposits collagen, remodelling and resurfacing, causing plumping of fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin, creating a smoother, rejuvenated surface.

As collagen is a main structural protein found naturally within our bodies, stimulating the creation of new collagen cells is the safest and most effective way to correct skin irregularities. There is a dramatic improvement in acne scarring, active acne, pigmentation and rough skin as pores are refined creating a dewy and more youthful complexion overall.

Sublative skin rejuvenation therapy can achieve a dramatic improvement with:

  • Acne scarring and active acne
  • Skin tone
  • Fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin
  • Rough skin as pores are refined
  • Hydration for a dewy look
  • Smoother and more youthful complexion overall

What Can I Expect?

The Sublative applicator head is comprised of many multi-electrode pins which when in contact with the skin delivers the RF energy creating a grid like pattern on the surface. The dots of this grid are where the RF has punctured the skin and the surrounding tissue is what stimulates new collagen production. Essentially resurfacing the skin from the inside out as it is tricked into healing wounds that were intentionally delivered. Each pulse feels like a quick prickly sensation and then a gradual heat is felt all over as an after effect. Compared to other light or laser resurfacing which can create weeks of downtime and high amounts of pain, the Sublative does not disrupt the surface layer of the epidermis allowing you to resume your normal routine. The skin appears quite red, fading by the next day and can feel a little like sand paper afterwards due to the formation of micro crusts which naturally slough of over 5 days.

Another wonderful bonus is that everyone is a candidate for the treatment, whether you have light or dark skin, sensitive, dry or oily and everything in between it will benefit you.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Depending on the condition of the skin and the desired outcome, results will vary which we will establish with an individualised treatment plan during your consultation.

Generally, 3 to 4 sessions are required for optimal results, spaced 1 month apart although an excellent reaction can be achieved after only 1 treatment with improvements continuing up to one year after. Results are gradual as the effect of the procedure is in the dermal layer and needs time to rise to the epidermis. A few weeks after the initial session, skin becomes noticeably softer, clearer and smoother while looking completely natural.

A maintenance treatment is recommended once a year to maintain and further enhance current results and as the procedure works to rebuild collagen there is no limitation to how long the outcome will last.

Skin Resurfacing Process

Step 1: Consultation and Assessment

During the initial consultation at the Body Transformation Institute, our experts will discuss your specific concerns and goals. We will evaluate your skin condition, medical history, and assess the suitability of the Etherea treatment for you. This step ensures a personalised approach, tailored to address your unique needs and maximisgede the effectiveness of the treatment.

Step 2: Etherea Treatment Session

Using the cutting-edge Etherea laser technology, our trained professionals will administer the treatment. The Etherea system offers versatile capabilities, allowing for various applications such as skin rejuvenation or vascular and pigmentation treatments. The precise laser energy is targeted to the specific area, stimulating collagen production, and addressing specific skin concerns. The treatment is typically comfortable, with minimal downtime, and can be customised based on your individual requirements.

Step 3: Follow-up and Maintenance

After the Etherea treatment session, our team will provide you with post-treatment instructions and guidance to ensure optimal results. This may include skincare recommendations, sun protection measures, or any necessary follow-up appointments. Depending on the treatment goal, a series of sessions may be recommended for long-lasting effects. Regular maintenance sessions might be advised to sustain the results over time. Our experts at the Body Transformation Institute will be available to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and provide ongoing support throughout your skin resurfacing journey.


What is Etherea Skin Resurfacing?

Etherea Skin Resurfacing is an advanced laser treatment that targets various skin concerns by removing damaged outer layers and promoting collagen production. It addresses issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin texture, resulting in smoother, rejuvenated skin.

How does Etherea Skin Resurfacing work?

Etherea uses fractional laser technology to deliver precise energy pulses to the skin’s surface, creating controlled micro-injuries. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process, replacing damaged skin with new, healthy tissue. The treatment also triggers collagen production, leading to tighter and firmer skin.

Is Etherea Skin Resurfacing suitable for all skin types?

Yes, Etherea’s fractional laser technology is safe and effective for most skin types and colours. However, a consultation with one of our skilled practitioners is essential to evaluate individual skin conditions and determine the most suitable treatment plan.

How long does an Etherea Skin Resurfacing session take, and how many treatments are needed?

Treatment duration varies depending on the area being treated, but sessions typically last between 30 to 60 minutes. The number of required treatments depends on the severity of the skin concerns. Many patients achieve noticeable improvement after 1 to 3 sessions, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Is Etherea Skin Resurfacing painful, and what is the downtime?

Etherea Skin Resurfacing is well-tolerated by most patients. Topical numbing creams may be applied to enhance comfort during the procedure. After the treatment, mild redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn may occur temporarily. Downtime is generally short, and most individuals can resume normal activities within a few days.

What results can I expect from Etherea Skin Resurfacing?

Etherea Skin Resurfacing can significantly improve skin texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. The treatment stimulates collagen remodelling, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Results are gradual and continue to improve over several months as the skin’s natural rejuvenation process takes effect. Regular maintenance treatments can help maintain the desired outcome over time.



Great to see what the team have created at the Body Transformation Institute. I like to take good care of myself with how I eat and move. I also train a lot and need optimal ways to recover and this added to the protocols.

My normal days include cold plunge and sauna however the HOCATT is another level to the mix. Whilst I was there I had the chance to try out the massage chair and a PEMF magnetic device for recovery and inflammation.

Really recommend this place and the team they really care about their clients and create a beautiful experience.


Experienced the HOCATT to support my body in detoxing and working on inflammation. The team at BTI were so informative and really love the way they are interested in working with me towards my health goals.


A very professional service! All the equipment is very high quality and the friendly staff cater to your every need! I had lower back pain and their machines made a huge difference! The Body Transformation Institute is the place to go! I highly recommend it!


Just want to give a big shoutout to the staff at Body Transformation Institute for their great service and treatment I received.

The new centre is beautiful and inviting and the new Wellness treatments especially the Hocatt treatment are amazing. Very excited to see my body repair and heal. I have booked ongoing treatment therapy and recommend you check them out and give them a try.

I am excited for the future for this brand new innovative family healing business. Health is everything
