High Intensity Focus Ultrasound (HIFU)
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment can target various depths of the body’s tissue for skin tightening, skin lifting and body contouring.
HIFU boosts new collagen production and collagen regeneration right at the source.
The SMAS is the layer that sits between the muscle and the fat, the actual area a plastic or cosmetic surgeon would pull and tighten under the knife,HIFU targets this layer without any surgical incisions, giving the patient a no-downtime facelift.
HIFU target areas to treatment:
- Shrinks pores
- The ‘V’ line formation
- Jowell lines
- Skin contour - skin tone, pores, brightness and elasticity
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
broad-spectrum pulse of light, generally in the visible spectral range of 400 to 1200 nm.
The resulting light has a spectral range that targets specific structures and chromophores (e.g. melanin in hair, or oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels) that are heated to destruction and reabsorbed by the body.
Skin conditions for treatment by IPL :
- Large pore
- Skin rejuvenation
- Hair removal
- Vascular lesions
Skin conditions for treatment by Q-switch Nd-YAG :
- Nervus of Ota
- Brown spot
- Seborrheic Keratosis
- Cafe’ Au Lait spot
Q-Switched (1064 & 532 nm) Nd:YAG laser provides a highly uniform beam pattern significantly reducing undesired side effects such as hyper- and hypo- pigmentation.
Nd:YAG laser has a wavelength of 1064 nm and has the capability to reach deeper layers of skin tissue than other types of lasers .
Q-switched mode, Nd:YAG produces 2 wavelengths, one in the infrared range (1064 nm) and the second beam of 532 nm wavelength which is also useful for superficial skin lesions.
Fractional CO2 and CO2 laser
The CO2 laser has carbon dioxide gas as its medium, and emits energy a 10,600 nm. The CO2 laser application removes the epidermis and promotes collagen production .
Skin conditions for treatment by CO2laser :
- Moderate to deep wrinkles
- Skin resurfacing
- Face scars
- Acne sequelae
- Face telangiectasia
- seborrheic keratosis
- Skin tags
- Syringomas and Xanthelasma
- Comedonal Acne
Diode laser is 810nm pulse laser, destroys the black melanin pigments in the hair follicle to remove hair easily. Diode Lasers produce a single spectrum of intensely concentrated pure light in one single red colour and wavelength. The laser precisely targets the dark pigment (melanin) in your hair follicle in order to heat the follicle to disable its ability to regrow hair, without heating the surrounding skin.
