Mesotherapy of the arms
Mesotherapy entails basic injections into the fatty areas of the arms. A cocktail of FDA approved medications and lipolytic substances that dissolve fat is injected into your fatty areas of the arm during each treatment, usually spaced about a month apart.
Injectable phosphatidylcholine formulations, sodium deoxycholate, L-carnitine, caffeine, procaine and yohimbe have been effectively used as lipodissolve agents for the treatment of localized fat accumulation for decades. Although the exact mechanism by which phosphatidylcholine exerts its effects is still unknown, proposed mechanisms include emulsification and mobilization of triglycerides from fat cells, followed by detergent action and ultimately the breakdown and dissolving of the fat cell.
The procedure is performed weekly or bimonthly. Your doctor will work at your desired pace and schedule. Multiple sessions are needed, as results are seen about a month into treatment. Proper nutrition and exercise are complimentary and benefit the the final outcome of this procedure. Mesotherapy treatments carry no downtime and no anesthesia is necessary, other than a cold pack to numb the skin prior to the micro-injections
Circumferential non-surgical reduction of the arms through VIORA Re-Fit™ and ACCENT™
Non surgical arm reshaping is achieved via high energy radio frequency treatments. Our radio frequency mechanisms use bipolar energy to heat the fat layer and stimulate collagen growth, leading to healthy and youthful looking arms. This procedure is not painful and has no downtime. No anesthesia is necessary. Radio frequency treatment also require multiple treatments for optimal results, spaced from one week to a month apart. As with other nonsurgical modalities, it targets the fat cells to eliminate the contained fatty tissue. Since the heat is transmitted from the skin to the deep fatty area the, added benefit is collagen remodeling and skin tightening. There are many manufacturers and devices at our institute we use the best. We believe the VIORA Re-Fit™ and ACCENT™ are leaders amgonst the radio-frequency, skin tightening and circumferential fat reduction technologies.
VIORA Re-Fit™ and ACCENT™ deliver bipolar radio-frequency energy into the superficial and deep layers of skin to induce skin tightening by collagen stimulation and/or remolding and regenerating new collagen in the skin.We recommend the treatment be performed every two weeks with minimum of four to six sessions. Results can usually be seen a few months after treatment commencement. Results can vary from patient to patient, but most patients will see visible, sometimes dramatic, results.
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Collagen induction therapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a micro-needling device. CIT is safe and effective on all skin types and colors without the risk of discoloration. While CIT has many uses, one of the most popular is skin tightening. Aside from this it is also useful or other modalities such as stretch marks, acne scars, surgical of burn scars, and reducing fine and deep lines And discolorations on the face and body.
CIT involves the use of tiny titanium micro needles penetrating the skin, which causes micro-channels and triggers an intense response. This response provokes the fibroblast to generate specific healing substances known as growth factors and promote college stimulation. This process causes the renewal of healthy, youthful skin.
Sun Damage Improvement of the arms through IPL and BBL
Lumenis One™ Intense pulse light (IPL) and Sciton™ Broad Band Light (BBL) technologies utilize the power of pulsed, filtered, intense light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength filter, we treaet a broad range of skin conditions caused by aging and excessive sun damage. The light energy delivered by the IPL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates tissue at variable depths. This process helps restore the skin to its natural healthy appearance. In addition, the light energy targets and eliminates the unwanted melanin responsible for that blotchy sun damage look.
Micro-LASER Resurfacing of the arms
Micro-LASER peels can be used to eliminate sun damage and blotchy skin on the arms.
In our practice we utilize the Sciton Erbium Laser, which delivers a beam at a 2940 nm wavelength. This beam attacks sun damaged skin with computer-controlled precision into precise depths of the treated skin. The beam creates a reaction of the abnormal melanin of the blotchy skin, coagulates it and induces renewal of the skin and elimination of the blotchiness.
Skin Cosmeceuticals, topical skin therapy for the arms
- Solaris™: UVA and UVB sun protection. Be careful with over-the-counter sunblocks, as not all skincare products contain UVA and UVB protection. Even though there are many products in the market today we believe best results are achieved with our medical grade sun protective topicals.
- Vitamin C serum™: This intensive, specially formulated product is truly the next generation of anti-aging products, which helps cellular rejuvenation and detoxification. Vitamin C-serum Complex™ combines the antioxidant benefits of the effective active form of ascorbic acid Vitamin C-serum, plus other active ingredients like Jojoba, aloe leaf barbadensis, RNA, DNA sodium and salicylic acid.
- Brightening Exfoliator Polish™: This is an effective exfoliating scrub that brightens the skin and gives it a smooth glow. Its active ingredients are glycolic acid, salicylic acid, arbutin, green tea, CoQ10 and bisabolol.
