Superpulse Radiofrequency Technology is used at Beacon Face & Dermatology to achieve a non-surgical facelift. Superpulse works by selectively targeting deep collagen, causing tightening of collagen fibres and stimulation of collagen production, whilst sparing the epidermis. It is a non-invasive procedure, which can be used all over the face, including the lower eye area. The Superpulse Radiofrequency Technology offers a safe, well-tolerated, clinically proven and effective treatment for sagging skin.
Tightening of collagen fibres and stimulation of collagen production help to restore lost skin tone and resilience. This coupled with a skin plumping effect gives a more youthful appearance.
Use of skin coolants during the treatment makes it a comfortable treatment and no anaesthesia is required. There is no associated down time and one can resume normal activities straight away after the treatment is completed.
Laser therapy can treat both superfical and deeper areas of sun damage. This treatment is well tolerated, has no down time and can be repeated at one monthly intervals.
Superficial, medium depth and deep chemical peels can be used to successfully fade the signs of photodamage. The type of chemical peel used depends on the patient’s preference, the severity of the sun damage and the desired outcome of the treatment. This can be decided upon after clinical examination.
- Superficial chemical peels are painless and have no down time
- Medium depth chemical peels are well tolerated and have a down time of approximately 5-7 days
- Deep chemical peels have a down time of 10-14 days
Personalised prescription topical medications
When used as part of a daily skin care regime topical medications work by stimulating collagen production, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles and evening out skin tone and texture. The effect is a more youthful appearance and rejuvenated skin.
