Cryolipolysis is a new technology that uses cold exposure, or energy extraction, to result in localized panniculitis and modulation of fat. Presently, the Zeltiq cryolipolysis device is FDA cleared for skin cooling, as well as various other indications, but not for lipolysis. There is, however, a pending premarket notification for non invasive fat layer reduction.…Details
Noninvasive Radio Frequency for Skin Tightening and Body Contouring Consumer demand for noninvasive methods for skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, body contouring, and cellulite reduction is continuously growing. Patients want to look better and younger, in part due to the fear of being replaced by younger colleagues in a competitive job market. As less time for…Details
Selective photothermolysis (Part 2) Melanin absorbs across a wide spectrum of wave-lengths. Eumelanin, the primary chromophore in the epi-dermis and darkly pigmented hair follicles, has a broad absorption spectrum spanning from ultraviolet light to the near-infrared region. Eumelanin is the chromophore targeted in lentigo simplex. It is also the target in laser hair removal with…Details
Selective photothermolysis (part 1) SP relies on fundamental choices being made correctly – wavelength, pulse duration, fluence, exposure spot size, and use of skin cooling. First, a wavelength (or, with IPLs, a range of wavelengths) must be used that is preferentially absorbed by the intended ‘target’ structures such as hair follicles, microvessels, tattoo inks, or…Details
Light interactions with skin Photons can be absorbed (giving up their energy to matter) or scattered (changing their direction of travel). Light that is scattered back from skin is called reflectance. For a given skin layer, light that passes through it is called transmittance. Scattering is inversely wavelength depen-dent, such that shorter wavelengths are scattered…Details
Facial Aging-Related Problems Facial aging can result from a variety of causes. Some factors are intrinsic and uncontrollable; others are extrinsic and controllable to a certain degree. All human beings appear to age along a common progression; however, differences related to lifestyle, gender, and ethnicity can be seen. For example, it is noted that the…Details
Changes in the Skin The facial skin is continually exposed to a variety of external conditions, such as wind, cold, heat, and ultraviolet radiation. The last factor is the principal agent causing extrinsic aging of the skin, with effects that are significant enough to warrant the term “photoaging.” This exposure extends throughout an individual’s life,…Details
RF Cell Plus successfully combines latest revolutionary Fractional Micro-needle RF technologies with Fractional Thermal RF technology in one system to achieve the most optimal treatment result for both epidermis and dermis. Fractional Micro-needle RF with 25 electrodes provides direct heat through precise depth control from 0.5~3mm. RF energy delivered via gold-coated micro-needles creates precise and controllable fractionated coagulation zones within a speci?c layer of dermis. Adjustable depth control allows for customized and reproducible treatments of delicate areas. It effectively lowers the risk of PIH in dark skin types and can be safely used on patients with melasma and other types of pigmented lesions.
