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.

Treatments for brown spots

Age spots treatments

Choosing the right treatment depends really on how far you want to go and how much you want to spend.  Are you prepared to put up with a bit of pain and spend some fairly serious money on an age spot treatment or do you prefer a more gentle approach that will fade your age spots gently over time?

Stay realistic about your chances of removing age spots completely – there are downsides to each option and no perfect instant remedy.

1. Topical treatments

For facial age spots your first option would be to look at a cream with a high strength active ingredient. One route to go is a fade cream – a topical treatment that contains a skin lightening agent. In America fade creams typically contain hydroquinone.

Topical remedies also include creams and serums with high strength ingredients to accelerate skin cell renewal. Retinol product at high concentration, vitamin C serums or skin care formulations with high levels of glycolic acid are all used to treat age spots. The appearance of hyperpigmentation is likely to lessen over time with these remedies.

Age spots on hands can be dealt with in this way too but you may have less chance of success since the cream is not going to be in contact with the skin on your hands for such a long time.  Hands are constantly being washed and reapply a topical cream may be expensive and ineffective.

2. Skin resurfacing

Option for removing age spots with this method include deep chemical peels, laser resurfacing (with ablative lasers) and dermabrasion.  None of these treatments should be undertaken lightly since they all involve removing the surface layer of skin on your face down to the dermis in most cases.

Skin resurfacing can be an effective age spot treatment but it involves pain and downtime and it is a surgical procedure which means you need a highly qualified board certified plastic surgeon to do it.  One of the disadvantages is that resurfacing is a bit of a blunt tool which will take off more of the skin’s surface than you need to remove the age spots.

3. Laser treatments

Increasingly nowadays laser treatments for age spots are seen as the best way to go if you want to get rid of them for good. Laser treatment is increasingly used with success to get rid of age spots on hands as well as the face and chest.

The advantage is that certain lasers can be used to precisely target only the dark area of skin avoiding the unaffected skin around it.

4. PDT  Photo Dynamic Theraphy.

In today’s market, professionals and consumers are quickly recognizing the amazing benefits of non-invasive LED light therapy, making LIGHTWAVE one of the hottest and most requested skin care treatments on the market. This affordable method of rejuvenation with red light therapy, blue light therapy and infrared light therapy effectively re-energizes aging and damaged skin by stimulating the cellular renewal response from deep within the tissue to repair and renew tired damaged cells and stimulate the rejuvenation process that takes place to achieve and maintain beautiful, healthy skin.

What do age spots look like? Age spots have a different look to scar tissue from acne. They tend to be less regular and the skin surface can be raised and uneven rather than pitted. These darker areas of skin form over time and they may start off looking like larger and slightly faded freckles and then get deeper in color with the raised texture that many women find so distressing. The more delicate, thinner skinned areas on your face and body will likely show the damage first – the backs of hands, around the eyes and the chest area. What causes age spots? We dislike them in part because they seem to tell us and everyone else that we aren’t so young as we once were – but the truth is that brown spots on hands or faces have very little to do with aging but yes its a part of it.

Age spots, sunspots or liver spots, whatever you call them, if you stay indoors all your life you won’t get them. They are small patches of hyperpigmentation from sun exposure and we get more of them as we age because our skin tends to have been more exposed to the sun the older we get. The more time you spend outside the more chance you have of getting them – golfers, gardeners, and general fresh air fiends are all more at risk. Naturally the risk is worse if you live in a sunny climate – California or Florida say or most parts of Australia – the more sunlight hours the worse for your skin unfortunately. Holland has the least to do with it since we are in fact deprived of sun shine. During summer time we need to protect ourselves more than winter time.

The problem is for many of us that the damage may have been done years ago – long before sun protection became the norm – and sun damage takes years to emerge. Your genes play a part Genetics also matter as in most things – if your parents had little sun damage despite a life outdoors then it is likely you may inherit their inbuilt resistance. Don’t let that lull you into a false sense of security though – wearing sunblock still matters. Lifestyle factors contribute to age spots Diet and lifestyle matter too – a high antioxidant diet with plenty of flavonoids from highly colored fruit and vegetables increases your bodies ability to resist the damage from free radicals like UV rays. Smoking on the other hand is likely to increase your risk. Smoking ages skin and impedes the flow of nutrients and antioxidants to the capillaries under your skin. If you are serious about getting rid of your age spots – make sure your lifestyle doesn’t undermine the treatment your choose. How to get rid of age spots Wanting to remove age spots is really driven by vanity as there’s no health risk and they don’t cause pain. On the other hand – most of us hate the look of them and they can make us feel self conscious about our looks. You don’t have to put up with them if you are unhappy – taking action to get rid of age spots can be a huge boost to your self esteem and make you feel younger too.

Keep it simple

 

Anti aging remedies rake in billions of dollars every year in the U.S. With all of the different creams, potions and lotions, purported to slow and reverse the aging process, it’s hard to tell which ones work and which ones are pure hype.

Claims about magnets diminishing pain, or special light beams shooting life-prolonging energy into your body might work for some but is really hard to tell if they are beneficial long term. Certain kinds of makeup are popular because of the anti aging effect they have on a woman’s look. While these products can help you to look younger, all they really do is mask the look. Some  reduce the actual signs of aging . The truth is, there is no real way to stop the aging process. BUT what  we can do is reduce the signs  and avoid getting it worse.

Drink plenty of water. Hydration keeps skin’s elasticity, reducing the signs of wrinkles. Staying out of the sun or using sunscreen will slow the damage of the harmful rays. Don’t smoke or chew tobacco as this can cause wrinkles , especially around the mouth. Use moisturizers. Keeping your skin moist is the big secret to reducing wrinkles.

  • In fact a lot from your own kitchen can be useful . Be creative  (smile)
  • Celery cleans the blood, lowers cholesterol and lots of vit c.
  • Wrinkles- One egg white mixed with one teaspoon wholemeal flour. Apply in the affected areas, leave it to dry and rinse off with warm water.
  • Aging Skin Mask- Blend half avocado, 2 or 3 strawberries, rose water and 2 spoons of olive oil. Apply over face and neck for twenty minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
  • Scrub- Use the peel of the avocado (internal part)to exfoliate the skin. Rub face and neck to get rid of dead cells.
