Non Invasive Procedures
Below is a discussion of some, but not all of the procedures and treatments offered at our clinic. If your desired procedure is not mentioned, please check with us, as it is impossible to list every possible procedure.
ULTRASONIC RADIO FREQUENCY
Ultrasonic radio frequency treatment is a safe, non-invasive method that is effective in skin tightening. Loose skin around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, jaw line, jowls and certain other areas of the body are tightened. Ultrasonic radio frequency also reduces the appearance of cellulite. Skin tightening diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and improves the skin's tone and texture. The heat generated from radio frequency treatment causes tissue retraction by causing contraction of collagen fibers, which immediately tightens the skin. New collagen formation takes place over time (3-6 months). Visible improvement can be noticed within this time framework. Ultrasonic radio frequency treatment is also effective in improving blood and lymphatic flow and circulation.
Ultrasonic is a term that refers to sound frequency. The hand piece used during this treatment makes a subtle sound while it is vibrating. The ion vibration (positive and negative alternation of sound waves) produces a strong wave of pressure to fat cell membranes. A fat cell membrane usually cannot withstand this pressure causing the fat cell to explode into liquid content.
The liquid resulting from the fat cell destruction is eliminated from the body through the normal channels of the body's metabolism. Only fat tissues are affected by this configuration, leaving other tissues safe and normal. Generally, an ultrasonic cavitation treatment lasts 35 minutes when a single area of the body is treated. Most patients select treatment to be performed in the abdominal area, external and internal areas of the thighs, legs, back and buttocks. Typically, there should be 72 hours between treatments, as the body needs this time to eliminate the liquified fat. The recommended number of treatment sessions ranges between 6 and 10.
SHR (STATE OF THE ART LASER HAIR REMOVAL SYSTEM)
SHR or “super hair removal”, is the latest in laser hair removal equipment, technologically advanced for fast, effective and virtually painless hair removal. It is effective on virtually any area of the body. It is suitable for all skin types and is very popular due to its low-heat settings making it very safe and comfortable, unlike other hair removal techniques.
SHR is delivered via a hand held device operated by our trained technicians. It is always in motion and fires multiple shots (flashes of light) but at low Joules (energy). Research has shown that a slower, but longer heating process is considerably more effective for permanent hair reduction than high and short levels of energy. Using low energy but a high rate of repetition, the hair melanin, as well as the tissue of the stem cells, is heated with low energy at a slow pace and over a longer period of time to a comfortable temperature of 45 degrees Celsius.
Hair growth occurs in stages: 1) Early anagen, which is the onset of hair growth, followed by anagen, the active growth phase of hair follicles. During anagen, the root of the hair is dividing rapidly, adding to the hair shaft. During this phase the hair grows about 1 cm every 28 days. 2) catagen, which occurs after anagen, at the end of hair growth; and 3) telogen, when hair is resting and not growing. In order to insure that the hair follicle is being targeted at the various stages of hair growth, SHR hair reduction treatments are recommended in 4 week intervals. A gradual notice in the decline in hair population will be noticed, and before you know it you will be hair free! The average number of sessions needed can vary from 8-12. Rejuvenation clinic has recently acquired this technology, providing excellent results and extremely pleased patients
DIAMOND TIP MICRODERMABRASION
Diamond tip microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment for the exfoliation or removal of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Dead skin, oils and dirt left on the skin can be the cause of unsightly complexion problems. By removing unwanted dead cells, healthy, new skin cell production is stimulated. Healthy, new skin cells reduce fine lines, age spots, blemishes, scarring, and stretch marks. At the Rejuvenation Clinic, only state of the art diamond microdermabrasion is utilized. By using this highly sought after microdermabrasion equipment, all of the benefits are obtained without the possible danger of aluminum oxide dust being embedded in the skin or being inhaled.
The highly advanced diamond wand can safely be used around the eyes and mouth area, where wrinkles and lines tend to first appear. These critical areas can be abraded more accurately with the diamond wand.
This treatment is also a safe, non-invasive method for resurfacing the skin in the treatment of acne scars.
HIFU ( High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) or Ultherapy
HIFU is a safe, FDA approved, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of aging on your skin.
What makes HIFU so unique to other technologies is that it deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at 4.5 mm and uses optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. This allows for neocollagenesis, or in other words, "jump starting" the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Other technologies do not penetrate this far or this deeply. Sessions are performed between 3-5 times, depending on the patient's individual needs. This is all done in a quiet office setting without any cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
The results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow. This treatment is a great alternative for patients who are not ready for surgery or who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
