It was a privilege for Somerset Surgery to host the APRASSA pre-congress workshop with GENOP Health Care on 22 March. Two workshops were held on the day. (Read more here)

The Silhouette Soft Lift workshop was conducted by Dr Vakis Kontoes, an ISAPS professor and plastic surgeon with a private practice in Athens. Dr Kontoes demonstrated the latest threadlifting technique for the neck and eyebrows.

Dr Vivian Jandera (a plastic surgeon from Pretoria) – assisted by Dr Toogood and Rene Campbell of Genop – performed a SkinTech Phenol peel. Phenol peels may only be performed by doctors because they penetrate the skin deeper than AHA or TCA peels to address coarse wrinkles, acne scars and blotchiness.

The workshops were attended by plastic surgeons from around the country who were part of the ISAPS congress, which was held at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West.

Both the treatments demonstrated at the workshops are available at Somerset Surgery.  Please contact us on 021 851 3400 to find out more.
