Vanquish is an FDA-cleared body contouring procedure. Vanquish uses radio frequency energy to heat and kill fat cells in a non-invasive way. The treatment is intended for reduction of the abdomen and thighs. The procedure is virtually painless and requires zero downtime. Results are typically achieved in four to six sessions.
Vanquish can eliminate Fat without the “side effects” associated with Liposuction or Gastric Bypass. This new procedure does not require anesthesia or the risk, since Vanquish is non-invasive there is no risk of infection or downtime.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and you can return to work immediately without interrupting your personal or professional lifestyle. While each patient is different, we recommend 4 - 6 treatments to enjoy the maximum benefits.
Vanquish has minimal side effects, these may include redness of the skin and a slight warm sensation at the treatment site. Patients have no reported pain following the procedure.
Key Points: (via Dr. Steven Weiner)
Dermavogue uses BBL (broadband light) therapy, an advanced version of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to perform PhotoRejuvenation treatments.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a safe and non-invasive PhotoRejuvenation technology that is used to improve the signs of aging from the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. It can also be used in various light spectrums to treat acne and acne scars, broken capillaries, and the symptoms of rosacea. Treatments result in consistent, visible improvement of the skin with no downtime, little discomfort, and minimal risk.
PhotoRejuvenation via intense pulsed light (IPL) produces a broad beam of highly concentrated light to treat facial redness and flushing and skin discoloration from aging and sun damage. Pulses of a specific type of light (mostly infrared) are applied to the skin, sending a light signal to the body's collagen production system that enhances the rate at which the collagen is produced. This light is filtered to a wavelength that is selectively absorbed by the target tissues with minimal effect on surrounding tissues.
Irregularities such as pigment marks, small veins or clusters of veins will naturally absorb a lot more light, becoming much warmer than the healthy surrounding skin tissue and will gradually die and fade away The effect of warming the skin and the deeper layers of collagen is that the skin will be stimulated to function more efficiently, therefore producing a firmer, fresher complexion, reducing pore size and evening out skin texture, tone and color.
Don't Get Stuck with Your Unwanted Tattoo for Life Decorative tattoos have a history dating back at least 5000 years. The desire to remove them has probably existed just as long! It is estimated that close to 10% of the U.S. population has some sort of tattoo. Eventually, as many as 50% of them want to have them removed.
Tattoos are created by piercing the skin at multiple points with a needle while delivering pigment, with the goal of creating a scar that traps the pigment (the tattoo) deep within the skin (the dermis). Many people decide to get a tattoo on a whim and then decide later in life that they would be happier if it was removed. Now, there is good news for those who have unwanted body art. Newer laser tattoo removal techniques can eliminate your tattoo with minimal side effects.
The Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure Medical lasers use an intense beam of light to significantly lighten or completely remove your tattoo, without harming the surrounding healthy cells. Cosmetic medical lasers designed for tattoo removal range from a single wavelength of light to a broad spectrum of light. All of which are intended to remove the ink in the tattoo without damaging the skin. Certain colors of light are absorbed by specific colors of the tattoo ink. The light energy vaporizes or fragments the ink particles. Your body then absorbs these ink fragments naturally and the color fades over the next couple of weeks. This laser tattoo removal treatment is very similar to treatment that has been done for years to treat birthmarks.
Laser tattoo removal seems to be the choice of most medical professionals over other methods, such as surgical excision, dermabrasion, chemical peels and cryosurgery. It is non-invasive and targets only the inks used in the tattoo process.
