Fraxel Resurfacwg

Fraxel skin treatment is the latest form of laser skin rejuvenation that promises the dramatic results of ablative treatments without the serious side effects of traditional skin resurfacing.   It's just one of the latest nonsurgical cosmetic options now available, which continue to grow in popularity. Last year similar noninvasive procedures increased by more than 50 percent. The Fraxel laser involves resurfacing only 17-20 percent of the skin's surface at a time so there's no major redness or recovery time needed.   Fraxel's edge is that it is more gentle to the skin. It can produce dramatic improvements to aging and sun damaged skin.  The results include elimination of unwanted pigment and blemishes, improvement in texture, fine lines as well as deep lines, scars and stretch marks.  It is unlike anything  else on the market. Instead of removing the entire outer layer of skin, as in previous methods, the Fraxel beam is split up and heats microscopic columns of tissue (leaving healthy tissue in between). It basically creates a grid of small wounds on the skin (invisible to the naked eye). After three to five treatments from 1 – 4 weeks apart, the results are similar to traditional ablative resurfacing. The typical Fraxel patient has wrinkles, brown spots, wrinkles and redness. Unlike aggressive laser resurfacing which can be used only on the face, Fraxel can be used anywhere on the body -- back, neck, upper chest and hands. It also has excellent effects on acne scarring and is one of the only effective treatments for stretch marks.

The treatment itself takes about 20 minutes, with about 40 minutes needed for a local anaesthetic to numb the skin. The sensation during treatment is of a pricking sensation on the face, and feeling of a sunburn for approximately 1 – 2 hours after the session.  Recovery is immediate, with any redness subsiding shortly after the treatment.  There can be a period of skin peeling similar to that of a sunburn.

 Fraxel treatments should only be given by a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist with special training in fractional laser resurfacing.  Results can be dramatic, but it is important to ensure that the machine settings are appropriate and safe, to have the benefit of no side effects and yet have effective treatment sessions.

 

TITAN

The Cutera Titan  is the latest technology in non surgical anti – aging treatments Finally a painless, effective treatment to reduce one the classic signs of aging – sagging skin. Titan can be used on the face, chin and abdomen to increase collagen production allowing for tighter, more youthful looking skin Titan is for patients who want a more younger look without surgery, down time and painful injections or procedures Titan uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface. Without surgery, recovery time, or injections.

What is Titan Tissue Tightening?
We are Pleased to offer Titan, the newest breakthrough in laser skin therapy. For the serious candidate who wants to reverse the signs of aging lax skin through non-surgical means, Titan offers a safe effective alternative to traditional face lifts and tummy tucks. Titan is an FDA approved tissue tightening procedure that tightens lax skin around the arms, chin, cheeks, abdomen - all body parts. A pain free alternative to surgical methods, Titan produces dramatic results!

How does Titan work?
Using infra-red light Titan penetrates deep into the dermis, deep-heating the tissue in the targeted area and stimulating long-dormant collagen. As a result, the collagen contracts and tightens, producing visibly firmer-looking skin in the treated area. Results become more dramatic over time as collagen re-builds through a series of treatments. Titan is effective and safe for all skin types.

How long does the typical Titan procedure take?
Depending on the size of the area, a typical Titan procedure takes an hour. You will feel a warming sensation. Some clients choose to take a mild pain reliever before the procedure although no anesthetic is required. Afterward, you may experience some mild swelling or redness in the treated area but this should subside in a few hours. With Titan there is no downtime.

What kind of results can I expect from Titan?
After just one treatment clients will notice firmer, tauter skin in the treated area. Fine lines and wrinkles fill in. Frown lines soften. For optimal results, we recommend a series of protocol of three treatments spaced four weeks apart. After three-to-six months, clients who have undergone this non-ablative, non-invasive procedure find that they have achieved a result that is similar to and often more natural looking than a face lift.

Who is a good candidate for the Titan procedure?
Titan is safe for all skin types and all body types. It is FDA approved. It works best on lax sagging skin around the chin, jaw line and abdomen. Not to be mistaken with endermologie, for cellulite, Titan is a tissue tightening alternative for sagging loose skin.

How can I learn more about Titan?
During your consultation, our Clinic Directors will assess those areas that are of concern to you. Afterwards, we will develop an individualized protocol to help you achieve your desired outcome.

 

Cellactor

Skin elasticity decreases with age. The typical ‘orange peel’ appearance on thighs, buttocks and upper arms affects 80% of all women. The latest and most effective technology today is known as Acoustic Wave Therapy (»AWT™«).
AWT uses high-energy acoustic waves that are generated by means of two combinable therapy devices – planar and radial type applicators. Aesthetic and dermatological disorders such as cellulite, scars, edema (swelling) and stretch marks can be treated effectively and with long-lasting results. It can reverse or eliminate the visible signs of cellulite.
 

Measurable dermatological success
Cellulite typically appears on the arms, thighs and buttocks. The connective tissue is soft and elastic and exhibits a wide meshed network of collagen fibres. An imbalance between fat production (lipogenesis) and fat breakdown (lipolysis) within the cells leads to formation of large fat cells that bulge outward giving the typical dimpled appearance (orange peel skin).
The therapy success of the »AWT™« method is evidenced by the formation of a collagenous-elastic fibre network in the subcutaneous adipose tissue. A significant improvement in skin elasticity lasting over 6 months has been documented in clinical examinations.

What is AWT and why is it effective?
Acoustic Wave Treatment uses acoustic sound waves that are introduced into the effected body regions. The results are:
 Skin smoothing and rejuvenation
 Breakdown of fat deposits and drainage to lymphatic system
 Connective tissue tightening – Reduction of bulging fat
 Reduced circumference of affected body regions (slimming)
 Studies conducted in Switzerland, Germany and the US have shown a 110% improvement in skin elasticity.
Treatment Procedure
Contact gel is applied to the treatment region to ensure that the acoustic sound waves are introduced into the body without energy loss. Treatment is pain free. The applicators are gently moved in a systematic manner over the treatment area.
Treatment Duration and Frequency
Each cellulite treatment session takes about 30 minutes. Depending on the degree of cellulite, 6 - 10 sessions at 4 – 7 day intervals may be necessary.
Recommended Accompanying Measures
AWT results are enhanced with physical exercise and a low fat diet. 2 -3 litres of liquid per day are required to ensure rapid elimination of waste products.
