1) FRACTIONAL RADIOFREQUENCY LASER

WHAT IS IT?
A skin-resurfacing procedure where the surface of the skin is evened out using radiofrequency. Heat is delivered to the deeper layers of
the skin via micro-needles, breaking down old scars. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, encouraging the production of elastin and collagen to make the skin firmer and smoother.
WHAT CAN IT TREAT?
*Loose/Sagging skin
*Early acne scars
*Stretch Marks
*Rough skin texture
*Wrinkles
*Sun damaged skin


2) FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER


WHAT IS IT?
A skin-resurfacing procedure where the surface of the skin is evened out using CO2 lasers. Microbeams of energy light are used to
penetrate the skin, creating microwounds. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, encouraging the production of elastin and
collagen to make the skin firmer and smoother.
WHAT CAN IT TREAT?
*Deeper wrinkles
*Severe acne scars
*Severe sun-damaged skin


3) DERMAL FILLERS


WHAT IS IT?
A gel-like substance which is injected into the acne scars to smoothen them out. This gel is typically made using Hyaluronic Acid which is naturally found in the human body.
WHAT CAN IT TREAT?
*Scars
*Wrinkles
*Volume loss
*Facial contour deformity
*Skin rejuvenation
