What technologies power Non Surgical Procedures?
This treatment utilizes ultrasound technology to project an image of your underlying tissue while small thermal bursts stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin without disturbing the skin’s surface. The thermal bursts encourage new collagen growth. It is performed in multiple passes at varying depths within the skin.
Examples of Ultrasound devices include Ultherapy, Venus legacy, Vasershape and Exilis.
With this treatment, the skin is cooled for comfort and safety before the device is used. RF energy penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue, heating the treatment area and stimulating new collagen production. Usually with this technique, a series of treatments are usually performed.
Examples of RF devices include Thermage, BodyTite, ThermiTight, Pelleve, Vivace, Accent and Viva.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)/Broad Band Light (BBL)
During this procedure, a handpiece is used to administer continuous cooling while light heats the deep dermis and address discoloration in the skin. Multiple passes are performed and multiple sessions will be necessary.
Examples of IPL/BBL devices include Velashape, Titan, and Halo.
