How It Works

Cryolipolyse of vet bevriezen

Research has shown that fat cells are biologically vulnerable to low temperatures. The Coolsculpting procedure cools the treated area to just above freezing, at which point the fat turns from a liquid to a solid (similar to what happens when butter is refrigerated). This process promotes a process called apoptosis, which causes the targeted fat cells to shrink, while leaving surrounding skin and other tissue unharmed.

After treatment, over the course of a few weeks, the damaged fat cells slowly and safely leave the body through a natural metabolic process. (You won’t notice this happening.) As the cells leave, the circumference of the treated area shrinks. Studies conducted by the developer of the technology. Untill 28 % of fat will dissolved or dissapeared around  4-7 weeks after the treatment.

The treated area is marked and covered with anti freeze gel pad to protect the skin. No anesthesia or pain medications are required.

The area being targeted for treatment is then gently drawn (using a special vacuum applicator) between two cooling pads. You’ll feel a sensation of cold, which should gradually go away as the area becomes numb. (The sensation is similar to what you feel when you put an ice pack on your skin.)

The cooling pads are left in place for about an hour.

Potential Side Effects

After treatment, you can return immediately to your normal activities. Your skin may be red for 3-5 days.. Many people also experience some minor numbness in the treated area for a week or two.

Other possible—and temporary—side effects include bruising, tingling, tenderness, and cramping.

What Does IPL Stand For?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. IPL treatments are often referred to as photo rejuvenation, Photofacial or IPL Photo Facial due to its use of “selective photothermolysis” during treatment. Photothermolysis is the process by which IPL lasers convert light energy to heat energy and treat unwanted hair and skin pigments. IPL lasers can use photothermolysis to remove unwanted hair, or to correct skin hyperpigmentation, rosacea, age spots and the appearance of sun damage.

Reasons for Treatment

  • IPL laser treatment patients range widely in age and skin condition. Patients with corrective goals commonly use IPL to reduce skin irregularities caused by sun damage. Hyperpigmentation, the technical term for skin discoloration, appears in the form of age spots and liver spots. Another form of hyperpigmentation is melasmas, caused by pregnancy or menopause. IPL patients also use the treatment to reduce the appearance of scars, birthmarks, and. stretch marks. Fine lines and wrinkles can be diminished with multiple sessions. Patients with younger, less problematic skin, who use treatment as more of a preventative anti-aging solution, generally seek an overall improved complexion by way of a more even skin tone, and the radiance of a “new” layer of skin cells.

How it Works

  • IPL technology enables high-intensity laser beams to emit from a filtered flashlamp. The beams are filled with plasma energy that is channeled through the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis) to the deeper skin layers (the dermis), in order to dissolve and destroy the unwanted skin cells, and promote the growth of new skin cells in the targeted area, thereby removing unwanted pigmentation. Different versions of IPL technology are designed to target different structures of the skin, and which version is used depends on the patient’s desired results of the laser treatment. The most significant benefit of choosing IPL laser treatment over other forms of laser treatment is that IPL technology is non-ablative. This means that the surface of the skin is left undamaged, since the lasers permeate through the outer skin layer to repair the skin from the inside out.

    What Makes IPL Hair Removal Different From Other Laser Hair Removal?

    Unlike other types of hair removal lasers that use a single light wavelength concentration, such as the Alexandrite Laser or the Diode Laser, IPL lasers use a full spectrum of light wavelengths. IPL lasers can alter the intensity of its pulsed light beams with various filters, but it can’t be refined to a single wavelength. Some patients and professionals claim that the IPL’s greater wavelength spectrum equals less precision and less control, which could means less risk of burns .

    IPL lasers are sometimes available with combined radio frequency, or RF. The addition of radio frequencies is alleged to help improve skin texture and clear up troubled complexions. Radio frequencies attempt to heat up and energize skin tissue, which can increase collagen production and create firmer skin tissue. IPL lasers with RF energy will be more beneficial when used for anti-aging skin care treatments, rather than for laser hair removal.

    What is Permanent Hair Reduction?

    Laser hair removal is always performed in multiple sessions to get to the level of hair removal desired. For total hair removal, about six sessions is average. For those that are just looking to reduce hair growth, even fewer sessions will be needed. The number of sessions necessary for permanent hair reduction will vary from person to person, but about six – eight total sessions is average. At this point, hair growth will definitely be slowed. Some of the hair follicles may even be completely deactivated, leaving you with less hair .

    Disadvantage:

    You are not allowed to go under the sun 4 weeks before and after the treatment .

What Happens as Skin Ages?

 

What Happens as Skin Ages?

As you age, your skin gets thinner and dryer. Collagen and elastin — the networks of fibers that make your skin firm and elastic — become disconnected, leading to sagging and wrinkles. And your cells simply slow down: New skin cells don’t grow as quickly and dead cells don’t shed as quickly, resulting in dull, grayish skin. Finally, older skin is more likely to develop brown spots because pigment cells, or melanocytes, begin to grow irregularly.

 

Aging is a normal process, and aging skin is part of it. Just as you can help maintain wellness by living an active and healthy lifestyle, there is also much you can do to keep your skin healthy and more youthful looking.

In this section, you’ll learn interesting facts about skin, how skin ages and what you can do to protect it. You’ll also learn how Restylane? is redefining beauty at any age and get beauty tips for specific seasons and year ’round.

Causes of Aging Skin

Research shows that there are, in fact, two distinct types of aging. Aging caused by the genes we inherit is called intrinsic (internal) aging. The other type of aging is known as extrinsic (external) aging and is caused by environmental factors, such as exposure to the sun’s rays.

Intrinsic Aging
Intrinsic aging, also known as the natural aging process, is a continuous process that normally begins in our mid-20s. Within the skin, collagen production slows, and elastin, the substance that enables skin to snap back into place, has a bit less spring. Dead skin cells do not shed as quickly and turnover of new skin cells may decrease slightly. While these changes usually begin in our 20s, the signs of intrinsic aging are typically not visible for decades. The signs of intrinsic aging are:

  • Fine wrinkles
  • Thin and transparent skin
  • Loss of underlying fat, leading to hollowed cheeks and eye sockets as well as noticeable loss of firmness on the hands and neck
  • Bones shrink away from the skin due to bone loss, which causes sagging skin
  • Dry skin that may itch
  • Inability to sweat sufficiently to cool the skin
  • Graying hair that eventually turns white
  • Hair loss
  • Unwanted hair
  • Nail plate thins, the half moons disappear, and ridges develops

Genes control how quickly the normal aging process unfolds. Some notice those first gray hairs in their 20s; others do not see graying until their 40s. People with Werner’s syndrome, a rare inherited condition that rapidly accelerates the normal aging process, usually appear elderly in their 30s. Their hair can gray and thin considerably in their teens. Cataracts may appear in their 20s. The average life expectancy for people with Werner’s syndrome is 46 years of age.

Extrinsic Aging
A number of extrinsic, or external, factors often act together with the normal aging process to prematurely age our skin. Most premature aging is caused by sun exposure. Other external factors that prematurely age our skin are repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping positions, and smoking.

The Sun. Without protection from the sun’s rays, just a few minutes of exposure each day over the years can cause noticeable changes to the skin. Freckles, age spots, spider veins on the face, rough and leathery skin, fine wrinkles that disappear when stretched, loose skin, a blotchy complexion, actinic keratoses (thick wart-like, rough, reddish patches of skin), and skin cancer can all be traced to sun exposure.

Rosacea  is a common skin disease. It often begins with a tendency to blush or flush more easily than other people do.

Rosacea can cause more than redness. Rosacea can cause acne-like breakouts, visible blood vessels on the face, and dry, irritated eyes. To treat these diverse signs and symptoms, dermatologists divide rosacea into 4 subtypes.

Rosacea typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also less commonly affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp.[5] In some cases, additional symptoms, such as semi-permanent redness, telangiectasia (dilation of superficial blood vessels on the face), red domed papules (small bumps) and pustules, red gritty eyes, burning and stinging sensations, and in some advanced cases, a red lobulated nose (rhinophyma), may develop.

Recently, a few studies investigated the effectiveness and potential side effects of using lasers and IPL to treat rosacea. Here are the findings along with some general information about these devices.

LasersToday, lasers are used to treat these signs of rosacea:

Dilated blood vessels

Persistent redness,

Thickening skin on nose and cheeks (also known as rhinophyma

After just one treatment, every patient in the study experienced significant improvement. With two treatments, redness decreased by 40% to 60%. Patients also reported reductions in flushing, burning, itching, dryness, swelling, and sensitivity, which they said significantly improved their quality of life. Side effects included crusting and spots of darkened skin on the treated areas. These side effects were successfully treated. All improvements were maintained from one treatment to the next.

This study also found that effectiveness increases when the pulsed dye laser causes temporary bruising, which may last for 1 to 2 weeks. While bruise-free treatment is possible with some of the newer pulsed dye lasers, researchers concluded that inducing bruising leads to a consistent decrease in redness and other symptoms, such as burning and itching. The researchers firmly believe that inducing bruising increases effectiveness.

Other lasers used to treat visible blood vessels include the KTP laser, diode laser, and Nd:YAG laser. These lasers are less likely to cause bruising. Each is used to treat single, large, visible blood vessels. Findings indicate that these lasers may not be as effective in reducing redness as the pulsed dye laser.

Some patients with longstanding rosacea develop thickening skin on the nose and cheeks, which is called rhinophyma. The CO2 laser and erbium:YAG laser can be used to remove this thickening skin and improve the contour of the nose.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)A newer form of therapy, IPL uses a non-laser light source. The first IPL product received FDA approval in 1995 for treating fine dilated blood vessels on the face. Since then several other products have been approved. Recent studies conclude that IPL can safely and effectively reduce the following signs of rosacea in some patients:

  • Dilated blood vessels
  • Persistent redness
  • Flushing
  • Acne-like breakouts

To investigate the safety and effectiveness, four patients with dilated blood vessels and persistent redness received five IPL treatments, which were given at three-week intervals. Patients averaged a 30% drop in blood flow, a 29% reduction in visible blood vessels, and a 21% decrease in redness.2  Since only four patients were evaluated, these numbers cannot predict how people with rosacea in general will respond. Some dermatologists believe, IPL is more effective than these numbers indicate.

Another study looked at the effects of IPL treatment on the persistent redness, flushing, and breakouts associated with rosacea. In this study, 32 patients received between one and seven IPL treatments. Following treatment, 83% experienced reduced redness, 75% said they had less flushing and improved skin texture, and 64% reported fewer acne-like breakouts.3 As the above studies indicate, IPL is not effective for everyone. However, most patients notice some reduction in dilated blood vessels and redness after only one or two treatments. In one case, a patient’s flush response returned to normal. Side effects from IPL are temporary and include redness, swelling, bruising, and skin lightening.

Thinking about laser or light therapy?If you are considering laser therapy or IPL to treat your rosacea, it is important to keep the following points in mind,.

On this slide,  many forms of Rosacea:

http://www.skincarephysicians.com/rosaceanet/signs_symptoms.html

  • Not a cure. While some patients experience dramatic results (such as the return of a normal flushing response) and the results can be long-lasting, neither laser nor light therapy cures rosacea. You still need to continue to see your dermatologist for treatment and avoid your personal rosacea triggers. To maintain results, additional laser or light treatment may be needed at a later time.
  • Some patients not candidates. Do you have a suntan or any of the following medical conditions?
    • Clotting disorder
    • Tendency to develop keloids
    • Insulin-dependent diabetes.

Cavitation treatments are a non-invasive treatment, which our customers have found to deliver results they are thrilled with.

If you have a stubborn area of fat, maybe on your thighs or stomach, then Ultralean may be the answer for you. Many of our customers have seen improvements shown by measurement after 1.5 hour ultralean session.

Other popular names for our Ultralean treatments is cavitation.

This treatment isn’t just for the women. Popular male treatments are commonly described as treatments for love handles or man boobs. Some  males  were considering having a Gynecomastia operation for male chest fat reduction, however other alternative  is  Ultralean cavitation that they didn’t need to go down that costly and invasive path. Cellulite is a problem that affects all women( can also be man). Every woman has her little part of cellulite, large or small. We all know how difficult it is to get rid of this blemish that occurs mainly on the legs and buttocks and that does not go away even after dieting and exercise. The real problem of cellulite is that it is not “simple” fat like the one in the rest of the body, but fat is trapped in the connective tissues of the skin.

For women who would like to change their shape and get body confidence again, this may be the treatment for you. The treatment will usually show an immediate change. You may need from only 5 to 10 sessions in total, to get the desired results although I have to say this varies from person to person , lifestyle, hormonal changes etc.. We like to remind our customers that this is not a alternative to eating a healthy diet and exercising. This is a treatment that we believe can enhance your physique and help with your confidence.

Ultrasonic Cavitation is the fast and non-surgical type of liposuction that is becoming very popular today. It uses low frequency sound waves that depletes stubborn fat cells under the skin.

Micro-needling or Dermaroller

MECHANISM OF ACTION IN MICRO-NEEDLING or Dermaroller theraphy.

All this is a very complex process, but the principle is quite easy to understand.

In micro-needling we simply utilise the body self-healing mechanisms. It reacts to the intrusion of micro-needles like it would react to any other skin penetrating object. But the difference is the size of the object – the micro-needle. The intrusion of tiny surgical needles (provided they are professionally designed) is sensed by skin nerve receptors as an injury stimulus. But the needles are so fine and thin that tissue damage is unlikely. The skin integrity actually stays intact. However, this “nerve-stimulus”, transported by electrical signals, triggers the cascade of the healing process. Skin cells, in a radius of 1 to 2 mm around the pricking channel, release growth signals to undifferentiated cells. These signals in return stimulate the proliferation of new cells, e.g. fibroblasts to transform into collagen- and elastin fibres. The task of fibroblasts is, to migrate to the point of intrusion for wound closure. And here comes the trick: The pricking channels, caused by the micro-needles, close very quickly and no tissue lesion can be detected, and none has to be repaired. The transformation for wound repair cells (e.g. fibroblasts and others) is an automatic process – like a one-way road. Their final mission is to transform into collagen fibres. They integrate into the existing collagen formation in the upper dermis. This new fibre formation – in terms of many hundred percent – thickens the skin and fills former atrophic scars. As single needle prick is not worth mentioning. But if thousands of microscopic small needle-pricks are set, the induced collagen formation becomes confluent and forms a new collagen layer. This body reaction is called neo-collagenesis.

In addition, the inner cells that coat our vessels (endothelial cells), and in particular these of our capillaries, are also stimulated to proliferate. They react to this stimulation by sprouting out new capillaries that in return results in more and better blood supply of the skin. This reaction is called neo-angiogenesis.
