Celebrating Freedom – April

Celebrating our Freedom this April marks the 19th year of our South African democracy, and we are proud to be forging ahead and representing our country as a proudly South African brand.

This month as we celebrate South Africa’s history in the making, we thought we would include a little bit more about optiphi®’s history.

In this issue we debunk some myths about chemical peeling, as an anti-aging treatment protocol for specialists for nearly all skin conditions – also touching on the optiphi® Skin Rejuvenation Peeling Treatment to boost your skin’s radiance.

If you are in Gauteng – Remember to join us at our event on 20 May 2013.

All our love ♥

The optiphi® Skin Rejuvenation Peeling Treatment offers the ultimate skincare solution by combining the regenerative capabilities of glycolic acid with a range of potent actives to promote true skin rejuvenation…

• Visibly refine skin texture

A chemical peel with a difference.

We wanted to design a patient experience that offered true skin rejuvenation results without the nasty side effects generally associated with peeling…

This was our credo when designing our peeling system, what makes it so unique is that there is very LITTLE TO NO downtime experienced with the optiphi skin rejuvenation peel.
Thus, limited:

• Redness,
• Swelling and
• Peeling

Skin hydration

Dehydration is a massive contributor to skin aging. Our Skin Treatment caters for dehydrated skin with our intensely hydrating actives for a supple, plump hydrated skin tone.

How many Treatments should I go for?

Well, you will see a visible difference from your very first treatment, but it is recommended that you do a six week course of treatments initially; thereafter your therapist/medical practitioner will advise you on treatment progression.

Basal skin cells are regenerated allowing for optimal recovery of the skin structure and function. The optiphi range of actives builds and maintains the benefits achieved through the peeling system thereby optimizing skin recovery!

Making Skincare waves

How often is a skin care range designed by a biomedical engineering group? The Southern Group is a leader manufacturing and designing tissue engineered skin substitutes and high-tech wound care products. The group focusses on the innovation of new technologies – such as spinal and dental implants and at the forefront in 2006 was Skin Rejuvenation Technologies with their research on cellular skin care science.

What would be the best thing to put on your skin?

Leading Southern Group engineers and scientists asked this very question and it become the mantra for development of the Skin Rejuvenation Technology division.

In Tissue Engineering two processes are important.

1. Biogerontology – the study and manipulation of the cellular aging process.

2. Cellular proliferation and differentiation is the other – the ability for cells to multiply and also differentiate into a healthy and stable recognizable tissue.

The result is a skincare range that aims to interfere with the very nature of cellular aging, but also focuses on the structure and health of the different components of your skin.

Why the name optiphi?

Active ingredients at optimal concentrations.

Our goal is to link science and aesthetics.

“opti” represents our philosophy to provide the skin with optimal concentrations of active ingredients for skin rehabilitation on a cellular level. The perfect skin balance process we call Positive Homeostatic Influence is abbreviated as “phi” represents the golden ration.

opti (optimal ) + phi (balance) = optiphi

Innovative. Active. Scientific Skincare.


The truth about Chemical Peeling

Have you ever gone for a chemical peeling treatment?

Chemical peels are a fantastic option to rejuvenate your skin and give it a brand new gorgeous glow. The benefits of chemical peeling are numerous – like any aesthetic procedure there will be the possibility of experiencing minor side effects depending on the depth of your peel. Because of all the misconceptions about chemical peels -optiphi® will reveal which myth you should or shouldn’t trust.

MYTH 1: Downtime: Does undergoing a chemical peel mean being stuck at home for weeks?

The answer is No! You might associate chemical peels with burnt, raw and painful skin. But what you need to know is that this is the result of very deep chemical peels also called phenol peels which can only be performed by medical physicians. This form of peeling is uncommon – as it is aimed at niche skin concerns. When undergoing an optiphi Skin Rejuvenation Treatment, our goal is to curb inflammation ensuring that you have absolute minimal downtime, leading to limited swelling, redness and peeling. Assessing your skin and your goals are key points that will be extensively discussed with your optiphi expert.

MYTH 2:Is it safe to perform a chemical peel at home?

Preferably not, with the variety of home peeling systems available, it is important to note that these home kits are made up of various peeling compounds – which often differ greatly from professionally administered peeling treatment procedures. There is a big difference between the results you would possibly experience with the appropriate strength peel for your skin. Professional advice and expertise is crucial when choosing to go for a chemical peel, to give you the long term results you are looking for. Our professional optiphi peeling system is not designed for home use, but instead to be tailored by a professional for optimal results. Make sure you give your skin the best and put it in the hands of a professional.

MYTH 3: Only one treatment is needed to change my skin?

You will see a result after going for your 1st optiphi Skin Rejuvenation Treatment. But we look at your skin from a cellular perspective therefore we recommend that the active retail products be combined with regular treatments, to maintain the skin radiance. Achieving long term optimal skin health is a gradual process, so a course of chemical peeling treatments is recommended to establish a true balance to your skin barrier integrity.

MYTH 4: Are chemical peels only aimed at people with bad skin?

Absolutely not.Chemical peels will do wonders for all skin types and have a positive result on various conditions. Chemical peeling is the perfect treatment to address skin texture, minimize hyper-pigmentation and address some of the underlying causes which would result in a poor skin condition for example acne and sun damage.

Superficial peeling treatments help increase cellular turnover, stimulating healthy cell growth whilst exfoliating dead skin cells. Anyone can have a peel as an excuse for a radiant glowing skin.

Seek advice from one of the optiphi therapists who will answer your questions and guide you through the chemical peel experience so that you benefit fully from it.
