TAHQ - The Aesthetics HQ - Skin Care

skin care


The NeoStrata skin care was developed by Dr Van Scott and Dr Yu, the Dermatologists who created the first glycolic peel and who discovered the rejuvenating powers of alpha Hydroxy and Polyhydroxy Acids (AHA's and PHA's). Products formulated with Alpha-Hydroxy acids (AHAs), Poly-Hydroxy acids (PHAs) and/or Bionic acids, have been clinically proven to improve the visible signs of ageing, including:
• Premature ageing / sun damaged skin
• Dry, dull and dehydrated skin
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Pigmentation (dark spots)
• Acne scarring / oily and acne prone skin

NeoStrata is scientifically advanced and clinically proven to visibly resurface, restore and refine your skin. The skincare range is formulated to address specific needs. Targeted treatments and peels are also available.


The Optiphi philosophy promotes true skin rejuvenation by using optimal concentrations of active ingredients, that perform in synergy on a cellular level. PHI is the symbol for the Golden Ratio (1.618…) taken from the first letter of the name of the Greek sculptor Phidias. This ratio reflects patterns in nature Linking aesthetics, science and beauty. Positive Homeostatic Influence is the process of promoting homeostasis on a cellular level to ensure optimal cellular functioning. PHI represents our scientific approach to aesthetics and high-tech, active skincare.

The skin is constantly under attack by exposure to harmful internal and external factors. The most detrimental of these include solar UV radiation, harsh climatic conditions, free radicals and stress. They affect the condition of our skin and give way to the visible signs of aging. We can however effectively slow the aging process down, and replenish the skin - resulting in a rejuvenated and improved skin appearance: Increased hydration, optimal skin barrier function, even pigmentation, improved skin texture, reduced redness, refined pore size, increased firmness and improved elasticity. The correct environment allows for optimal cellular functioning, resulting in physiologically younger looking skin. In order to achieve this, the skin needs daily rehabilitation.

Through Cellular OPTIMISATION, a process we call Positive Homeostatic Influence or PHI (balance). Homeostasis is the term used for the internal housekeeping process constantly performed by a cell, tissue, organ or organism. This process keeps balance and creates an environment for optimal cellular function. The aim is to positively influence this process, which will help the skin cell regain its natural balance, improving its state of health and allowing cellular processes to be revitalized. True skin rejuvenation is promoted through the use of OPTIMAL concentrations of active formulations. The optiphi® range contains a synergy of actives that promote homeostatic balance, address skin concerns and ensure a youthful skin appearance.

optiphi®, established from a bioengineering and biomedical background, is in the position to conceptualize, create and evaluate the best active solutions to is unique. Central to its product development is academic integrity, intuition and passion. The process of selecting active ingredients is stringent – each active is selected based on a thorough scientific literature and publication review, to scientifically substantiate product efficacy. The validated concentrations are fastidiously applied to ensure a product that is safe and highly effective. Active synergies perform in concert to do exactly what our core PHI-losophy dictates - to improve the youthfulness of the skin, reinstate balance and to promote healthy, optimal skin function. The skin is rejuvenated without interference to natural processes, such as skin barrier function and acid mantle protection. Optiphi®; acts as an optimal preventative treatment modality. It is not only designed to reinstate that which was lost, but also to prevent further deleterious and damaging effects.


A Natural Skin Supplement for Daily Protection
HELIOCARE® harnesses the natural and powerful antioxidants in Fernblock® PLE (Polypodium Leucotomos Extract) to help preserve your skin’s ability to protect itself against sun-related effects and aging.*
Taken orally once or twice per day, natural HELIOCARE® can help you maintain more youthful-looking skin – and you can still enjoy the sun. However, Heliocare is not a sunscreen and should be used in addition to topical sun protection.

Aging from the Sun
Both UVA and UVB rays from the sun can damage your skin, resulting in older-looking and less resilient skin. This damage can cause wrinkles, thickening, dark spots, enlarged or broken blood vessels and more.
Topical sunscreens play an important role in protecting your skin from the sun. However, many environmental factors can reduce the effectiveness of your sunscreen, including weather, location and what you are doing in the sun (swimming, sweating, etc.)
