Assessments & Treatments
For non surgical cosmetic treatment, Botox injection comes to be the top service in many countries for several years. Botox or Botulinum toxin Type A is a biological substance produced by the Bacterium Clostridium Botulinum and purification with standard method usage in worldwide medical practice over 10years. This protein causes muscles to relax for a period of time.
Dermal fillers are used for facial aesthetic treatments to restore youthful fullness to your face, plump lips, enhance shallow contour and soften those facial creases and wrinkles. Dermal fillers have been called “liquid facelift “ because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without downtime. The substance in these injections is called hyaluronic, a substance normally found in the body. There are a number of brand names including Restylane, Restylane-L, and Perlane.
The term “CPT” stands for “Comfort Pulse Technology.” With this technology, Thermage CPT has become a much more comfortable and much more effective procedure for skin tightening. There are two ways in which Thermage CPT improves patient comfort. First, instead of one continuous unbroken pulse, the CPT technology breaks up the Thermage pulse into a series of micro-pulses. Second, the CPT technology delivers the Thermage pulses with vibration. The vibration reduces the sensation of heating, which also leads to improved patient comfort. The treatment tip emits radio frequency energy to heat the collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to tighten immediately. Once the Thermage CPT radio frequencies have reached the fat layer, the fat is heated via a series of radio pulses causing fat reduction as well. In addition, it stimulates new collagen production, which further enhances the result. The Thermage CPT procedure is very safe. Ideal candidates for Thermage CPT have mild to moderate facial laxity. The Thermage CPT procedure can also be used to treat patients who have areas of skin that are still loose after a surgical facelift. The final result is visible approximately 2-3 months after the procedure. The results depend very much on the condition of the patient prior to the Thermage CPT treatment and also in the way that the patients care for themselves after the Thermage CPT treatment.
I could say that every woman wants silky, smooth skin, but I think there is a growing number of men who care about unwanted hair as well.
There are a variety of methods to remove facial, armpit and other body hair. Shaving, tweezing, waxing and using depilatory creams are quick ways to get rid of unwanted hair. Unfortunately, they can cause irritation and redness and hair regrowth is quick. In fact, there are better options that are safe, nearly pain-free, have fewer side effects and better results like laser to accomplish this task.
- Laser hair removal/Pulsed Light
Laser hair removal really is the most effective way to have long-term hair reduction.The laser works by targeting the pigment at the base of the follicle so it works best on people with dark hair and light skin. The hairy areas like legs or back can be treated in as little as 15 minutes. The treatments are safe but they have to be done properly.
Laser works anywhere on the body. It's best for women with dark hair and light skin. Once an area is treated only a few times, you'll see an average of 70 percent hair reduction. After 6-8 treatments depending on the case, most hair follicles should be gone.
The possible side effects may be swelling or redness. As there's also a chance of burning and scarring, it's best to have laser treatments at a physician’s office because the doctor can oversee your treatment and to minimize risk, make adjustments and manage side effects.
A trained expert places a tiny needle inside each hair follicle to destroy the root by delivering a shortwave radio frequency to the hair follicle to destroy it. It can be used on all hair and skin colors, including white or blonde, fine textures and on facial hair.
Because it takes a long time, it's best for small areas like the upper lip or chin. Women with white or blond hair who can't get laser or IPL may see results from electrolysis.
The FDA considers electrolysis a permanent hair removal method. The number of treatments depends on a variety of factors like the amount of hair, hormones and other hair removal methods that were used. The Possible side effects may be redness, swelling, and scarring.
The other treatments done in hair removal clinics are Sugaring which is similar to traditional wax where they use Cream, honey and hard wax. Sugar wax consists of sugar, water, lemon juice, and glycerin. It’s still painful or uncomfortable just like traditional wax, but there’s no burning sensation afterward and redness and ingrown hairs are minimal. Sugaring works on any part of the body but it’s best for the neck down.
Another common form of hair removal in the Middle East and India as well as Thailand is Threading. Compared to waxing, it’s less abrasive, not as painful and more precise. Using a piece of thread, the person who does threading twists and rolls the thread to quickly remove each hair or an entire row of hairs from the root. Threading can be done on short hairs and regrowth is finer. Threading is usually used on the eyebrows, but can also be done on the chin, nostrils and upper lip.
Lipolysis injection, often called lipodissolve or lipolift, is a localized fat reduction with injection of drugs. Lipolysis injections initiate a process during which fat is melted away and then eliminated from the body via the usual metabolic process.
Most lipolysis mixtures contain a combination of phosphatidylcholine (PPC) and sodium deoxycolate.
Even this treatment is not approved by US FDA, they are commonly used in many countries in Europe and Asia.
CoolSculpting is a relatively new procedure that utilizes the capacity of very low temperatures to preferentially damage fat cells compared to non-fat cells. Damaged fat cells for temporary cold application "die" and are absorbed by the body over the course of several days, weeks and months. The end result is a trimmer you.
Endermology is the ideal treatment that is approved by FDA for cellulite and post-operative liposuction smoothing. By mechano-stimulation principle together with roll and lift technology, Endermology provides complex activation of collagen and elastin and activation of lypolysis. Endermology works well with liposuction to achieve the smooth skin surface unattainable by surgery alone. Endermology immensely decreases post-operative swelling time and helps to improve some of the lumpiness and irregularities of the skin that sometimes can occur after liposuction. Additional, Endermology stimulates fibers below the skin (collagen and elastin) to help tighten and tone the skin on all areas of the body.
