NEORETIN® Serum Booster & Gel Cream SPF50 – Powerful Combination to Clear & Brighten Skin Pigmentations for an Even Complexion

WHAT IS NEORETIN®?

NeoRetin® helps clear and brighten your skin, creating an even complexion. NeoRetin® helps control the appearance of your skin’s pigmentation by using clinically-proven ingredients to tackle every stage of the melanin production cycle, while the patented mild for all skin types formulation of these ingredients safely maximizes the beneficial effects to your skin. NeoRetin® has been thoroughly tested in clinical conditions and has been found to be effective on a range of skin types and levels of pigmentation.

HOW DOES NEORETIN® WORK?
NeoRetin® works hard to treat your skin in a number of ways. It is effective at tackling dark skin pigmentation by keeping your skin fresh and renewed, as well as actively whitening your skin. Additionally, it provides added protection from broad spectrum UVA and UVB light as well as keeping your skin moisturised and feeling great.

NeoRetin® uses a unique combination of Vitamin A ingredients to help increase cell turnover and exfoliation which speeds up the shedding of the darker skin cells. These ingredients are delivered through the epidermis using unique Retinsphere™ technology, which helps prolong the activity and bioavailability of the ingredients. .

NeoRetin®’s Whitening Booster System contains clinically proven brightening and lightening agents that prevent the development and transfer of melanin at every stage of its production cycle.

The range also includes broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, preventing any further melanin production, as well as protecting the skin from the other negative effects of UV exposure, reducing the production of “reactive oxygen species” or “free radicals” that cause sun damage and even skin cancer.

Finally, NeoRetin’s moisturising formulation locks moisture into the epidermis and optimises your skin’s tolerability so that it not only looks great, but feels great too.

HOW DO I USE NEORETIN®?
Apply the NeoRetin® Gel cream SPF50 on the whole face in the morning.
Apply the NeoRetin® Serum Booster on skin pigmentations at night.

HELIOCARE™ PUREWHITE RADIANCE Capsules – Whitening Capsules with Sunblock in One!

WHAT IS HELIOCARE™ PUREWHITE RADIANCE CAPSULES?
Heliocare™ PureWhite Radiance Capsules are herbal supplements that combine the benefits of Fernblock® and White Tech Complex.

WHAT IS FERNBLOCK®?
Fernblock® is the first oral agent that has shown abilities to quench free radicals and decrease the development of hyperpigmentation. It increases skin resistance against sunburn by 300% and prevents formation of skin darkening caused by UV rays. Fernblock® prevents and repairs DNA damage induced by harmful UV rays and provides anti-aging benefits through enhancement of collagen stimulation and prevention of further degradation of collagen. Thus, Fernblock® is an oral sunblock with additional benefits of delaying the aging process!

WHAT IS WHITE TECH COMPLEX?
White Tech Complex consists of the following ingredients that aid in skin lightening:
1. Pomegranate Extract/ Punica Granatum (Ellagic acid) – Clinically proven as a safe and effective whitening agent through inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase (the main enzyme of melanin production)
2. L-Cystine – Whitening agent that intercepts the formation of melanin, reducing the production of dark pigments. It is a precursor of Glutathione, a potent anti-oxidant which plays an important role in the regulation of melanin production in our body.
3. Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) – A potent and effective anti-oxidant that interferes with melanin synthesis and neutralizes free radicals from environmental aggressors and prevents collagen damage. Thus, it’s both a skin lightening and anti-aging ingredient!
4. Vitamin B3 (Nicotinamide) – Inhibits transfer of melanin to the skin surface, thus reducing skin darkening. It also decreases collagen oxidation and improve aging-induced yellowing of skin.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO TAKE HELIOCARE™ PUREWHITE RADIANCE CAPSULES?
Take one (1) capsule, two (2) times a day.

HOW SOON CAN I SEE THE SKIN LIGHTENING EFFECTS?
As with all whitening products, continuous use means more obvious results. Usually it will take at least 2 to 3 months for more significant skin lightening effects.

DO I STILL NEED TO WEAR SUNBLOCK CREAM/ LOTION WHILE TAKING HELIOCARE™ PUREWHITE RADIANCE CAPSULES?
For usual sun exposure (e.g. commuting daily to school/work), you don’t need to apply sunblock cream/lotion. However, for more intense sun exposure (e.g. swimming, hiking, etc.), you may need to apply sunblock cream/lotion. The good thing about taking Heliocare™ PureWhite Radiance Capsules is that even though you miss re-applying your sunblock cream/lotion after intense sun exposure, you won’t have any risk of sunburns.

RADIESSE® Fillers – New Generation Fillers that Stimulates Collagen Formation with Longer Lasting Results!

WHAT ARE RADIESSE® FILLERS?
Radiesse® are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). Radiesse® is also used for correcting volume loss in the face and in the back of the hands. Radiesse® is likewise proven to form collagen which can help in treating deep scars like atrophic acne and chickenpox scars.

HOW DOES RADIESSE® WORK?
Radiesse® is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. Radiesse is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of Radiesse® continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last 15 to 18 months or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting. Moreover, since collagen is being formed underneath the deep scars with the injection of Radiesse®, there is a significant long lasting reduction of the depth of deep scars like atrophic acne and chickenpox scars.

WHAT IS RADIESSE® MADE FROM?
RADIESSE® is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel. The calcium microspheres are similar to minerals found naturally in the body so allergy testing is not required. Over time, the body absorbs the microspheres and gel, leaving behind only natural collagen.

WHAT MAKES RADIESSE® DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DERMAL FILLERS?
Radiesse® is the only dermal filler available composed of calcium-based microspheres, and has been shown to stimulate the natural production of collagen, for results that may last 15 to 18 months or more in many patients. In addition, 30% less Radiesse® may be needed for correction when compared to other hyaluronic acid injectables. Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Radiesse™ will not migrate to other areas, which can lead to unsightly bulging/beading underneath the skin. In clinical studies with leading hyaluronic acid injectable dermal fillers, results showed that Radiesse® patients were more satisfied with their results than patients treated with other leading wrinkle fillers.

IS RADIESSE® PAINFUL?
Radiesse® is injected under the skin in a quick procedure that can be done over the lunch hour. Radiesse® is also FDA-approved to mix with lidocaine (an anesthetic), which means the procedure will be much more comfortable. In fact, in a clinical study, 90% of patients treated reported significant pain reduction when injected with Radiesse® mixed with lidocaine.

HOW SOON CAN I SEE THE RESULTS?
Immediately upon injection, Radiesse® restores volume to smooth out the signs of aging. The natural-looking results may last 15 to 18 months or more in many patients. For deep scars like atrophic acne scars, results are even longer lasting.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF RADIESSE®?
The most common adverse events include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, tenderness and itching. These side effects generally last for a short time and are mild in nature.

WHAT IS VXN ANTI-AGING FACIAL™?
It’s a revolutionary facial treatment from France, with 3 high tech ingredients that act rapidly on facial wrinkles:
1. “No Age VXN” – anti-oxidant that slows down wrinkle formation
2. “BTX” – synaptic agent that relaxes skin contraction, leading to wrinkle smoothing
3. High-molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid – fills in wrinkles. It is able to mobilize water up to 1,000 times its weight, thus making the skin plumper and more supple, softening the wrinkles, giving it a more youthful appearance.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF VXN ANTI-AGING FACIAL™?
VXN Anti-Aging facial™ has the benefits of Botox™ and other anti-aging skin treatments such as lasers without the risks of injection and the downtime of lasers.

ARE THE RESULTS INSTANT?
After the facial treatment, you will notice a skin tightening sensation. You will notice that your fine lines will smoothen, making your face look more relaxed. There will be some skin lifting effect as well as brightening of your skin for that more youthful appearance.

IS THERE A DOWNTIME FOR THE VXN ANTI-AGING FACIAL™?
There is no redness and swelling involved in the facial treatment, thus there is no downtime.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS? IS IT PAINFUL?
The facial treatment has no side effects. It is very comfortable and relaxing, there is no pain involved in the treatment.

HOW MANY FACIAL TREATMENTS DO I NEED? DO THE RESULTS LAST?
For longer lasting results, we recommend around 5 VXN Anti-aging facial treatments, done every 1 to 2 weeks. Results will last for up to 8 to 10 months.

INFINI™: 3-Dimensional Microneedle Fractional Radiofrequency for Skin Rejuvenation, Stretch marks & Scars Treatment

WHAT IS INFINI™?
Infini™ is a microneedle RF treatment device, which means it uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling to provide dramatic skin tightening and skin rejuvenation. Infini™ provides a non-surgical face lift by using microneedling fractional radiofrequency (MFR). Gold-coated microneedles are used to create controllable and fractioned radiofrequency thermal coagulation zones, which cause damage to the reticular dermis; this then results in long-term dermal remodelling, new elastin tissue formation, new collagen formation and dermal thickening, without causing epidermal injury.

WHAT ARE THE SKIN PROBLEMS TREATED BY INFINI™?
Infini™ is the ideal device for performing non-surgical cosmetic treatments on the face and neck. A number of different skin problems can be improved with Infini’s innovative microneedle and radiofrequency combination technology. Infini™ skin treatment includes:
  ▪ Skin tightening
  ▪ Improvement of Wrinkles and fine lines
  ▪ Skin rejuvenation
  ▪ Treatment of Active inflammatory Acne
  ▪ Improvement of Enlarged pores
  ▪ Improvement of Acne scars
  ▪ Scar treatment
  ▪ Treatment of Hyperhidrosis or Excessive Sweating
  ▪ Improvement of Stretch marks
  ▪ Improvement of Excessive Sebum or Oil secretion

HOW COMFORTABLE IS THE INFINI™ TREATMENT?
This depends on the type of procedure and individual, each person has his or her own pain tolerances. However, the INFINI was designed to maximize comfort for the patient with patented flow needling technology. Compared with other MRF (Microneedle Radiofrequency) and SRF (Superficial Radiofrequency) devices, many find the Infini™ more comfortable.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER INFINI™ THE TREATMENT?
Infini’s precise intra-dermal RF delivery with the MFR approach eliminates thermal damage to skin surface providing faster healing without downtime, and as a result lowers the risk of dark pigmentation after the treatment for all skin types. Typically, the treated area is red and appears “sunburned” or “wind chapped” for up to 24 to 48 hours. Patients may also experience minimal swelling. Following treatment, patients can resume all normal activities. We advise that patients wear adequate sun protection before going outdoors.

HOW MANY INFINI™ TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments depends on age, condition of skin, amount of laxity, and desires. In general, most people should consider 3 treatment sessions, but some have been satisfied with less. With only one session of Infini™ treatment most patients will already see results.

IF I WOULD NEED MORE THAN 1 SESSION OF INFINI™, HOW OFTEN WILL THE TREATMENT SESSIONS BE?
Interval of sessions is 3-6 weeks apart. Interval of sessions can be extended to 8 weeks if needed.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM INFINI™ TREATMENT?
Complications or negative side effects are remarkably low with the Infini™ treatments. Patient selection should be appropriate and the settings and technique should be done by a trained and licensed dermatologist. Pre-treating the skin with a balanced medical skincare regimen will also optimize the response to Infini as well as reduce the possibility of any side effects. Problems such as hyperpigmentation which can be frustrating with laser treatments in darker skin types are not typically seen with Infini™ treatments.
