Our clients are constantly hunting for the next fountain of youth in a bottle, machine or technique. Here is what we have to say at About Skin on our favourite techniques and tools right now. How do you help clients fight the signs of ageing? Our approach to turning the clock back considers many factors. The most important is the obvious; its the patients concerns. Then after a complete history and examination, a discussion of whether the patient desires a combination approach of products and non-surgical modalities or only desires non-invasive treatments. What treatments are most popular with clients? Significant non-invasive rejuvenation and client satisfaction can be achieved when a combination of lasers, IPL, radio frequency, and ultrasound devices to achieve aesthetic goals. How do you decide which treatment is the best option? Everyday, I evaluate clients who desire nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and request treatments that have little downtime. Many of these clients have years of sun damaged skin in which they have sun marks (dyschromia), poor texture, wrinkles, enlarged pores, as well as skin folds and laxity. For these individuals, one of my favourite regimens is a combination approach utilising Syneron’s ELOS Plus. Specifically, the regimen employs three ELOS Plus technologies. The dyschromia and telangiectasia are treated with the IPL and Bipolar RF SRA applicator. Next, the folds and skin laxity is treated with the Sublime RF applicator and lastly the Sublative Fractional RF applicator is used to improve texture, wrinkles and reduce enlarged pores. We use only topical aesthetic and the patients resume their daily activities. Depending on individual patient goals, we perform a series of two or three of the aforementioned regimen every 3-6 weeks. I have been employing combination ELOS treatments for many years with great success. The clients are extremely satisfied because the colour, texture and tone of their skin is improved. The results are long lasting because of there is collagen remodelling.
