There are certain beauty and wellness goals that can’t be easily met by altering your diet or your skincare projects. For many goals, such as fat reduction and skin tightening, the most effective way to meet your goals is to use advanced technology. At The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery, our technology-based treatments include a variety of treatments to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Lumecca IPL at a Glance
Technology-based treatments work by utilizing unique energy to work with the body’s natural regenerative abilities. The advantage of energy-based treatments is the fact that these treatments are non-surgical and have very minimal recovery times. These treatments can also be used on both the face and the body, making them ideal options for those who have multiple aesthetic concerns.
Morpheus8 is a radiofrequency microneedling treatment that addresses superficial concerns on multiple dermal levels. The radiofrequency portion of this treatment uses gentle heat to stimulate the production of collagen in deep dermal layers to restore the structure and firmness of the skin. The microneedling portion of this treatment stimulates the body’s regenerative response and encourages more rapid cellular turnover, reducing wrinkles and improving tone and texture of the skin. Numbing creams are used for maximal comfort during these microneedling treatments.
The combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling enables this unique treatment system to address a variety of skin concerns. Some of these concerns include skin laxity, fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, scarring, stretch marks, and much more.
EvolveX is the newest generation of hands-free radiofrequency-based technology. It is a one-of-a-kind machine that uses radiofrequency energy to target three different tissue types: skin tightening, fat reduction and muscle toning through EMS (electrical muscle stimulation). EvolveX is a great way to contour your body with the treatment protocol targeted to meet your needs.
Forma is a treatment that combines the deep penetration of radiofrequency and thermal energy to stimulate new collagen production in the skin to improve the overall texture of the skin. Forma is used primarily on the face to improve skin elasticity and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Forma Plus is a similar treatment that is designed to be used on the body to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. You can combine the use of both of these treatments to address all of your concerns. Both Forma and Forma Plus are completely non-invasive treatments that are very comfortable without any numbing creams.
IPL treatments are increasingly popular energy-based treatments used to primarily address pigmentation concerns. The Lumecca IPL system is designed to use intense pulsed light to eliminate the appearance of dark spots, blemishes, sun damage, and vascular lesions such as broken capillaries on the face. Lumecca IPL treatments are good options if your goal is to improve the tone of the skin, control rosacea, and erase broken vessels on the face.
Plus90 (Women’s Health and Wellness)
Do you experience urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness or painful intercourse? Have you noticed cosmetic changes post-childbirth or with age? Women may have feminine health concerns related to aging and post-partum changes that can have a great impact on their daily lives and self-confidence. Plus90 for women’s health and wellness is a unique system that gently heats vaginal tissues to improve natural lubrication, blood circulation, loose tissues, and symptoms related to childbirth, aging and menopause.
Plus90 can also be used to address issues related to urinary incontinence. Many women experience increased urinary incontinence after childbirth or after menopause. Symptoms of urinary incontinence include urgent urination, painful urination, and recurrent UTIs.
Plus90 can be used in combination with Morpheus8 for even more enhanced results in tightening tissues. A full consultation with Dr. Jessica Shih can determine the best treatment plan for you using a combination of powerful technology that can rejuvenate form and function without surgery.
FaceTite, AccuTite & BodyTite
FaceTite, AccuTite, and Body Tite are a trio of treatments that address concerns such as skin laxity and unwanted pockets of fat. Each of these treatments utilizes radiofrequency energy to induce collagen production, while also utilizing the thermal energy generated by radiofrequency to subtly melt fat cells. These treatments are minimally invasive, with a small probe inserted under the skin to provide powerful results that non-invasive treatments alone cannot produce. You will remain completely comfortable throughout the procedure with appropriate numbing using local anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia depending on your overall treatment plan, goals and desires.
FaceTite is used to tighten skin on the neck and lower face, AccuTite is used to address concerns in smaller areas of the face and body, and BodyTite is used on all other areas of the body. All of these treatments can be used to address each of your areas of concern, including contouring goals. They are also used in combination with other treatments for skin tightening and fat reduction such as Morpheus8, Coolsculpting, liposuction or other surgical procedures to achieve the best overall results based on your unique situation.
For the removal of unwanted hair, the Diolaze XL treatment is an ideal option. This laser treatment works by utilizing heat to damage individual hair follicles, which will then prevent the growth of future hair. Diolaze XL laser hair removal treatments can be used on the face and body to reduce overall hair growth. This particular laser system is gentle and fast for the elimination of unwanted hair. Even those who have very sensitive skin can use this system.
Which Treatment Is Right for You?
Selecting your ideal combination of technology-based treatment depends on what your specific aesthetic goals are. For example, if you want to tighten and lift skin, then a treatment like Morpheus8, Forma/Forma Plus, or FaceTite/AccuTite/BodyTite may be your best choice. You can also easily combine technology-based treatments to reduce unwanted hair, improve feminine health concerns, or tighten the skin.
Who Are Good Candidates?
The best candidates for technology-based treatments are those who have not been successful in treating their aesthetic concerns with over-the-counter products or non-energy aesthetic treatments. These technology-based treatments are intended for those who have moderate concerns related to aging.
You will need to attend a consultation appointment with Dr. Jessica Shih to verify your eligibility for these technology treatments. Candidates for treatment should not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding, should not have cardiac implants, and should have adequately healthy skin.
