FACE REJUVE / SKIN TIGHTENING.
As we grow older, our skin loses its natural firmness and youthful glow. This natural aging process, combined with factors such as sun exposure, environmental stress, weight fluctuations, and inadequate skincare, leads to a decline in the quality, strength, and elasticity of the collagen in our skin.
As a result, the skin becomes loose and saggy, with the appearance of wrinkles, folds, and a loss of radiance.
Skin tightening is achieved by delivering radiofrequency energy into the deeper skin layers, causing the skin to produce new, healthy collagen fibers for a natural, noticeable skin tightening effect.
Genius-RF Microneedling Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive medical device that combines radio-frequency (RF) energy and Microneedles to heat the tissues directly within the skin and stimulate tissue contraction from within the skin - creating a smooth, lifted, and sculpted appearance.
Genius-RF offers an alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgical
procedures and is ideal for patients who don’t want or are not candidates for typical excision surgery.
Depending on the area and condition being treated, Genius-RF can
be performed under a local anaesthetic = faster recovery, less downtime, and less expense for the patient!

What causes acne?Acne is a multifactorial skin condition that results from a blockage of the sebaceous gland, leading to an inflammatory response and the formation of comedones, pustules, papules, and cysts, which can cause scarring. Although acne is commonly found on the face, it can also affect the neck, chest, and back, with severity graded based on the number and type of lesions present. Androgenic hormones play a significant role in acne development by influencing the amount of sebum produced, which combines with dead skin cells and other matter, creating a blockage and a conducive environment for bacterial growth. Inflammation is initiated by P. acnes bacteria, while fast skin cell turnover further exacerbates congestion. Hormonal factors, medication use, lifestyle habits, and external factors such as heat, friction, and trauma can also contribute to acne flare-ups. At Beautiphi Cosmetic Studio, we offer a range of products designed to address the root causes of acne and promote clearer, healthier-looking skin.
What are the available treatments for acne?The effective treatment of acne targets all the steps of its progression, and combination therapy is essential to address these factors. Topical products containing active ingredients such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, azelaic acid, mandelic acid, and retinol act as keratolytics which exfoliate the skin and help reduce sebum production and the formation of comedones. Hormonal treatments and antiandrogen medications may be required when acne is driven by underlying hormonal factors. Antibiotics, including tetracycline antibiotics, may also be necessary to treat the underlying bacterial cause and to reduce inflammation. In cases of severe or resistant acne, oral isotretinoin (Roaccutane) may be prescribed. Correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment are essential for patients with conditions like PCOS. The duration and frequency of the treatment may vary, depending on the severity of acne and individual response.
How do we treat acne at Beautiphi Cosmetic Studio?At Beautiphi Cosmetic Studio, we take a comprehensive approach to treating acne, addressing all factors and stages of the condition to achieve lasting results. Our team of dermal therapists, cosmetic nurses, and doctors work together to develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient. During the initial consultation, we evaluate diet, skincare routine, and other contributing factors and create a plan that includes both at-home products and in-clinic treatments. We prescribe a complete home care regimen that may involve discontinuing current products and starting fresh with effective products. We also advise patients to follow a low glycemic index diet to reduce the effects of insulin and IGF-1 that can lead to inflammation and androgen production. Our doctors are available to manage more complex cases and may prescribe medications as needed. Our goal is to optimize outcomes through a combination of home care, lifestyle modifications, and clinic treatments.
What are the recommended treatments?At Beautiphi Cosmetic Studio, we recommend a combination of treatments for optimal results, which may vary depending on each individual's needs. It's important to note that the following is just a reference point, and a full treatment plan will be recommended after a thorough consultation: 1) Healite II LED Light Therapy: This treatment utilizes low-level light to target the P.acnes bacteria responsible for acne, by emitting Yellow or Red light at a wavelength of 830nm and 633nm. 2) Pico-Plus Laser Treatment: Pico-Plus is a pico-second laser that uses specific wavelengths to help treat inflammatory acne, post-acne erythema and acne scars. 3) Genuis-RF Microneedling: By combining skin needling technology and RF (radio frequency) energy, this treatment can effectively address inflammation deep within the pores and help rejuvenate the skin surface.
