AF SIGNATURE FACIAL

The AF Signature Facial blends old and new concepts in skin care. We incorporate the newest and most advanced medical technologies available, each of which is proven to be safe and effective, to boost the clarity and radiance of your skin. This signature package evolves alongside developments in research and novel therapeutics, ensuring it includes the most up-to-date dermatologic therapies so our patients can enjoy the greatest benefits.

Your AF Aesthetics specialist will help you find the facial that’s right for you and develop a targeted product regimen to complement your in-office treatments.

MEDICAL FACIALS

Medical facials incorporate medical-grade ingredients, prescribed by our medical specialists to suit each patient’s needs. These ingredients are then applied through specialised devices to ensure adequate transepidermal absorption in order to provide the intended benefit. Our range of facials target all skin concerns and skin types, delivering hydration and radiance with a single treatment.

Not all facials are the same. Our advanced facials combine the relaxation and indulgence found in a spa with the clinical results that can only be achieved in a medical setting. We use stronger active ingredients that penetrate to a much deeper level of the skin, where they enhance the body’s natural exfoliation, circulation and cellular regeneration processes.

Medical facials can be tailored to address concerns such as:

  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull skin
  • Dehydration
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Pigmentation
  • Redness

Many of our facials can be combined with other rejuvenating or anti-ageing procedures, such as energy treatments or injectables, for more dramatic and long-lasting results.

CHEMICAL PEELS

AF Aesthetics offers a variety of clinical chemical peels to target every skin concern. We use only the highest-quality acids, enzymes and botanicals to deliver transformation for all skin types. Our chemical peels are followed by treatments to promote rapid recovery to ensure safe and effective results with minimal downtime.

Chemical peels can be used to treat numerous complexion concerns whilst optimising skin health and function. Common conditions include:

  • Pigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Ageing
  • Textural irregularities
  • Dull complexion
  • Enlarged pores

We tailor each skin treatment program to the individual client. Our medical specialists select an appropriate depth of treatment — superficial, medium or deep — and suitable peeling agents based on each person’s unique needs. Downtime and expected results vary depending on the strength and concentration of the peeling.

In many cases, a course of personalised chemical peels will deliver optimal outcomes. Ongoing maintenance with home care products is vital to ensure long-lasting results and healthy skin.

LASER FACIALS

Lasers are among the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments at AF Aesthetics and worldwide. Our laser facials are performed with medical-grade lasers used in low-energy settings. These treatments can provide brighter, healthier skin to those seeking general rejuvenation, as well as targeted benefits for patients with specific concerns. Laser facials yield the best results when combined with a personalised skincare routine.

Lasers are remarkably versatile medical technologies. For facial rejuvenation, our lasers can address:

  • Skin laxity
  • Pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Facial redness
  • Acne
  • Vascular lesions
  • Scars
  • Poor skin texture and tone
  • Diminished production of collagen and elastin

Each laser at AF Aesthetics boasts different technology and abilities. Some of our lasers are ablative, which means they resurface the skin by vaporising superficial skin cells. Others are non-ablative, which means they treat a deeper layer of the skin without affecting the skin surface. The appropriate laser facial is chosen based on the patient’s concerns, skin type and tolerance for downtime.

ACNE CARE

Our acne care programs start with a medical assessment to correctly identify the type of acne a patient is dealing with and its underlying causes. Because acne is often caused by a combination of factors, the optimal treatment plan may combine modalities.

Acne treatments at AF Aesthetics aim to reduce sebum secretion and acne-causing microorganisms. This leads to a reduction in acne lesions and overall inflammation, and may provide improvements in pore size and skin texture. Medical skin conditions associated with acne can be addressed with minimal side effects utilising systemic oral medications.

Our acne care programs can also incorporate treatments for acne scarring.

HYDRAFACIAL

The multi-step HydraFacial focuses on three key measures of skin health: hydration, tone and texture, and pores and congestion. Rather than focusing on the external signs of ageing and skin damage, HydraFacial goes deeper to address their underlying causes. This gentle treatment is suitable for all ages and skin types.

Using patented technology, HydraFacial combines the benefits of a deep-cleansing facial, microdermabrasion, extractions, a chemical peel and serum infusion into one non-invasive treatment. The procedure can take as little as 30 minutes and involves no discomfort or downtime.

To maximise results, we offer upgrades to enhance our HydraFacial treatments. The advanced Platinum HydraFacial includes Lymphatic Therapy for detoxification as well as LED Therapy to target acne or fine lines. Lymphatic Therapy or LED Therapy also can be added à la carte to our other HydraFacial options.

For even more personalisation, choose one of our super-serum boosters to address your specific skin concerns. We recommend one HydraFacial per month for the most significant and sustained improvements.

SECRET RF MICRONEEDLING

Traditional microneedling uses a specially designed medical device to create micro-injuries in the skin. This triggers an internal healing response that increases collagen and elastin production, creating a brighter and more youthful complexion by harnessing the power of the body’s natural processes. This technique can be combined with radiofrequency technology to provide additional skin benefits.

Secret RF microneedling sends radiofrequency energy through the micro-needles deep into the dermis, where it generates heat. The heat enhances collagen and elastin growth and prompts a tightening and lifting effect in the skin. The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency into one procedure revitalises both the top and the lower layer of the skin for comprehensive and natural-looking results.

Your quest for healthy skin starts with a personal consultation to discover what makes your complexion unique and what goals you hope to achieve.
