The NaturaLight IPL allows safe treatment on a considerable wider range of skin types for the following purposes:
Pulsed light hair removal is safer, faster, and a more effective procedure to eliminate unwanted hair than electrolysis, waxing or tweezing. For example, with electrolysis, it takes two-seconds to remove one hair follicle versus hundreds of follicles per pulse of laser light. In addition the surrounding tissue is unaffected and there is little or no irritation to the skin.
IPL hair removal works with individual hair growth cycles to deliver lasting results regardless of skin color or body area. Because the treatment can only be used to eliminate follicles that are in the growth cycle at the time of treatment, a series of treatments are suggested to achieve the best long-term results.
Microdermabrasion is a procedure in which fine crystals pass over the skin for a complete exfoliation. Microdermabrasion is carried out with micronized crystals which are derived from mineral corundum. They are completely harmless and do not cause any skin reactions. In our office, the Mattioli microdermabrasion system ensures a safe, sterile and effective peel. You can expect little to no side-effects with no down-time!
Microdermabrasion is suitable to treat the following conditions:
What are the uses for the Transderm™?
The Transderm’s™ FDA Clearance states, “The Transderm™ Ionto Systems is a powered drug delivery system that is indicated for the local administration of ionic drug solutions into the body for medical purposes and can be used as an alternative to injections."
We may use the Transderm™ to treat cellulite, unwanted fat, fine lines and wrinkles or excessive sweating. We have found that the Transderm™ is especially ideal for delivering mesotherapy drugs – without the needles!
What is mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a treatment that has been gaining popularity in the USA over the past decade – but it certainly is not new! Mesotherapy was pioneered by the French physician, Dr. Michel Pistor, over 50 years ago. Mesotherapy consists of injecting medications into the body. Originally, medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic pain were treated. Over the years, mesotherapy evolved to include treatments for aesthetic purposes like cellulite, stretch marks, wrinkles, weight loss and acne.
The problems with mesotherapy:
Mesotherapy consists of injecting medications to change the body with many needles. A patient can have excellent results, but the process may not be worth it to many people. This procedure can be painful and result in bruising, swelling and even skin color changes.
The Transderm™ solution:
The Transderm™ delivers the same medications but does not use needles. The Transderm™ treatment uses low energy electrical pulses to deliver the medication.
What body parts can be treated with the Transderm™?
Your doctor can treat your face, arms, thighs, buttocks, stomach and more! The Transderm™ is safe for most areas of the body.
Is the Transderm comfortable?
The Transderm™ is a non-invasive treatment – so treatments are very comfortable! No needle, no pain, no down-time, no bruising and no skin color changes!
How long does a Transderm™ treatment take?
It depends on the specific needs of the client, but typical application times are relatively short.
How many Transderm™ treatments will I need?
This varies based on the area that is being treated. Most people see significant results between 1-4 treatments.
