As we age, our skin texture changes. As we lose collagen, our skin becomes drier and thinner. Fine lines start to appear, and our skin becomes loose. Genetics and environmental damage from sun, pollution and tobacco exposure exacerbates this.
Rejuvenation of damaged and aged skin is generally done with energy-based devices to tighten the skin. These devices transmit heat in various forms to stimulate collagen production. Skinbooster and Rejuran injections are also great for hydrating the skin and improving skin elasticity.
The Astute Programme for skin rejuvenation consists of (4) sessions of Rejuran with Teosyal Redensity 1 Skinboosters, (4) sessions of Fractional CO2 laser, (6) sessions of Venus Legacy, a bottle of Calecim Multi Action Cream and a bottle of Calecim Restorative Hydration Cream.

Fractional CO2 Laser
STEP 1 -
REJURAN WITH TEOSYAL REDENSITY 1
We start off the programme with a session of Rejuran. We mix it with a Hyaluronic Acid based skinbooster to provide additional hydration. Rejuran can only be used together with non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid. We find the Teosyal Redensity 1 to be the perfect fit. Apart from being non-cross-linked, it also contains a cocktail of other antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to give additional rejuvenation and lightening. Doing this as a first step will provide the skin with adequate hydration so that it can undergo future energy-based treatments.
STEP 2 -
This will be done 2 weeks after the first session of Rejuran, when we are sure that the skin has recovered. The radiofrequency energy will heat up the skin gently, stimulating collagen production to give a tightening effect.
STEP 3 -
A Fractional CO2 Laser can then be done on the same day after the Venus Legacy session. We utilise the Deka Smartxide’s rejuvenation settings, which is much gentler than what is usually used to treat acne scars. The CO2 Laser does a mild peel of the skin’s outer layer, while stimulating additional collagen production. Patients can expect some redness on the face for about 3 to 4 days.
