For years, there were 4 main technological categories in restorative dermatology Non-Ablative (lasers, IPL, Fraxel, etc), Peels, Fillers and Neurorelaxants (Botox). Now, we are adding a 5th…Energy-Based Technologies, Pelleve and Ulthera!
Cleared by the FDA for treating facial laxity, they do so much more. They stimulate and firm deep layers (dermis) of the skin without damaging the top layer. It’s remarkable that significant remodelling can take place without surgery and without a hiding period.
We anticipate these new additions will be really helpful for several of our patient groups:
1. Patients in their 40’s to 50’s who have not yet had plastic surgery and want to postpone it,
2. Patients in their 50’s to 60’s who have had plastic surgery years ago and want to extend its results,
3. Patients with loose skin after weight loss or pregnancy,
4. Patients who have routinely used fillers and neurorelaxants and want something more holistic and long lasting.
Choosing the most effective treatment modality for each individual patient is key. For this, of course, we need to see you in person.
