At About Skin we are excited about this new technology which has the backing of overseas clinical trials. We believe this is the future for non surgical face lifts. Combining the freshening effects of laser treatments with the use of radiofrequency electrical energy to stimulate and contract tissues below the epidermis allows fantastic youth generating effects. At About Skin we have recently taking delivery of a Motif for no downtime skin tightening- a relaxing and warming sensation on the face over as little as 30 minutes performed at regular intervals is enough to help stimulate your skin into a youthful you.The Motif laser is the state of the art treatment for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction – facial and neck non-ablative rejuvenation. Non-ablative means not shedding any skin so unlike the older forms of laser resurfacing you can have treatment with Polaris and be back at work the same day. There is no real discomfort with this procedure.Motif is a unique combination of a 900nm Diode laser and bipolar radiofrequency energy. The unique heating of the matrix of the skin by the Motif produces a controlled, focused energy, best for treating wrinkles and tightening the skin.The combination of controllable energies treating at multiple levels makes it possible to treat fine wrinkles at the surface, while penetrating into the dermis to treat deeper wrinkles – all in the same procedure. After going over the whole face the operator can target certain areas to form vectors to lift the face.
Dr Patrick Bitter – the pioneer in Fotofacial work with IPL has labelled the Elos Motif treatment the FotoliftGenerally, up to five treatments are required for maximum effect, and should be as regular as three – four week intervals. Given that the method by which Motif creates skin tightening and wrinkle reduction is through stimulation and production of your own bodies collagen, the full benefits of treatment can take 6-12 months to become apparent. The new collagen that is formed is permanent – unlike injected collagen – but of course is subject to natural deterioration with age. Top up treatments may be necessary over time. Polaris treatments are mainly for neck and face but can be used for problem areas on other parts of the body.
