HOW MICRONEEDLING REPAIRS SEVERELY DAMAGED SKIN
Featuring Allyson Burgess, RN, BSN
Cosmetic lasers have come a long way since they were first introduced to aesthetic medicine. The newest lasers provide impressive results with less downtime than their predecessors, making them the go-to devices for helping patients with problems such as unwanted tattoos, scarring or hyperpigmentation. Now you can add “needling”, the new treatment removes scar tissue, deep lines, discoloration and tattoos. In recent years, microneedling has risen in popularity and is now commonly used for treatments such as scar revision, hyperpigmentation and improvement in fine lines/wrinkles. The rise in the acceptance of microneedling among dermatological and surgical practices may be attributed to its ease-of-use, versatility, overall safety and consistently satisfactory results. Microneedling works with the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Microneedling creates microchannels within your skin. This treatment allows for all the benefits of collagen induction therapy. With microneedling there is very little down-time. Microneedling can treat all patients of all skin types and colors. This is important for people whose skin color may not make them a good candidate for other procedures and treatments. Microneedling does not depend on chromophores (pigment or color) to work. Therefore, it does not matter how dark one’s skin tone is (naturally or if you’ve spent too much time in the sun) when considering a treatment. Microneedling can provide great results for people with all skin types. Microneedling takes advantage of the skin’s natural healing ability to safely deliver consistent results to patients with all skin types with little-to-no downtime.
ANTI-AGING BREAKTHROUGHS FOR 2020

Fractional Pixel and Clear Lift Lasers are the key to turning back the clock. Unlike traditional lasers, which use a stamping or scanning technique, these lasers allow the clinician to treat the targeted area with high speed and elegant efficiency. The Fractional Pixel pulses are triggered as the treatment tip is rolled across the skin, regardless of the speed at which the hand piece is moved. These modules accurately and consistently deliver a single row of seven pixels per millimeter and it creates thousands of microscopic perforations while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. In more detail, the Pixel laser light passes through patented optics to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels. These micro-injury sites begin healing and, as collagen remodels, scars begin to fade, and texture starts to improve. If you are looking for a shorter downtime, ClearLift is a non-ablative approach to laser skin resurfacing. Clinicians can offer patients skin resurfacing treatments that are fast and virtually painless with visible results and no downtime. The innovative technology delivers a controlled dermal wound deep beneath the skin. The outer layer of the skin is left undamaged. All stages of healing and skin repair occur under the intact epidermis. This laser has numerous advantages, fast treatment time, no topical numbing is required, and treatments can take as little as 30 minutes. It is virtually painless, and patients report a comfortable, skin resurfacing experience. Unlike other laser treatments, patients can immediately return to their daily lifestyle. Variable tip depths can also be used for a combination of work on the same area to customize treatment in problem areas. The tips give providers the levels of flexibility needed to transcend the skin barrier and address a variety of age-related skin imperfections. The end result is an optimal outcome for the patient.
REMOVE FAT FIRST, BUILD MUSCLE SECOND
Featuring Nuha Handoush, Licensed LME Clinician
The future has arrived! People with unwanted fat, in the wrong places, are always looking for better ways, and the newest technology, to help reduce or get rid of that fat and build muscle. We are excited to announce that the newest member of the CoolSculpting family, CoolTone, has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is now available in the Fall. CoolTone uses magnetic muscle stimulation to induce supramaximal contractions to increase muscle strength and definition in the abdomen and the buttocks. CoolTone is not only the most powerful muscle toning device on the market today, it is also pain-free. The powerful electromagnetic current that is produced to stimulate the muscle contraction is able to bypass the sensory nerves which allows for a comfortable yet effective treatment. The introduction of CoolTone into the marketplace will undoubtedly jolt the body contouring industry.The FDA approved the newest CoolTone device for use in strengthening, toning and firming the abdominal area, buttocks and thighs. CoolTone uses magnetic muscle stimulation to penetrate muscle layers, which then causes involuntary muscle contractions. The body responds to the contractions by strengthening muscle fibers, leading to increased muscle tone. Same maker of the CoolSculpting device, a non-surgical fat-elimination device that works by freezing and killing fat cells in targeted areas like the abdomen, flanks or under the chin.
TWO OF THE BEST COMBO TREATMENTS TO KILL FAT CELLS
Featuring Olga Solovienko, Licensed LME Clinician
Looking for the latest and most safe, effective tools to kill fat cells, with a high patient satisfaction rate? CoolScultping Cryolipolysis “fat freezing” with Vanquish Radio Frequency Adipose Tissue Melting is a perfect combo treatment to kill fat cells. These body contouring technologies are non-invasive procedures that require no surgery, no scarring and no downtime. These days, many people do not have the luxury of being away from their work for many days. CoolSculpting Cryolipolysis, also called “fat freezing,” is an FDA-approved procedure that involves the non-invasive cooling of body fat to break down fat cells, resulting in a reduction of body fat without damage to other tissue. It has been one of the most researched and efficient procedures when it comes to stubborn areas of fat like flanks, abdomen, back bulges and thighs. During the procedure, a vacuum applicator is placed on the area, the tissue is drawn into the hand piece, and two cooling panels cool down to freeze fat cells in about 35 minutes, followed by a two-minute massage upon completion to improve the outcome. The patient then can go home and resume normal activities. Over a few months, fat cells will die and be naturally removed from the body.Vanquish Radiofrequency adipose tissue melting is a treatment that harnesses the power of radio frequency energy to target fat cells. The applicator automatically produces radiofrequency energy, which is transmitted to fat cells without affecting skin or muscle tissue. As the energy is absorbed by the fat cells, they heat up and die. Through a natural process called apoptosis the body flushes dead fat cells out of the body. This is a fascinating technology where there is no contact with the body, and the radiofrequency energy targets the fat cells. The unique contactless panel allows patients to treat a broad area at once, producing more results with no lines of demarcation. Vanquish Radiofrequency adipose tissue melting is effective to help slim the abs, belly, love handles, and thighs. It is designed to treat and adjust to each of these areas where fat is unwanted. On your thighs, the system simultaneously slims both the inner and outer thighs, and saddlebags. This allows for enhanced patient outcomes and shorter treatment times.
