Lasers technology is steadily becoming the norm in plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgeons and laser technicians are relying on these advances to reduce the need for more extensive surgery and give an extra boost to their surgical procedures. Lasers are also being used to improve the look and feel of the skin, including the texture, tone and firmness. They can also treat certain skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea, and dermatitis. The InMode laser system is comprised of a set of tools specifically designed to treat many of the issues that concern patients the most.
A company called InMode Aesthetic designed the InMode laser tools as a way to advance existing laser technologies. Lasers have been used for years to help patients achieve younger, healthier-looking skin as well as more trim and contoured figures. InMode laser tools accomplish these same goals but with greater efficiency and fewer complications. InMode Aesthetic offers at least half a dozen different tools, including FaceTite and NeckTite, which are offered at the Masri Clinic.
Aging slowly causes a variety of problems in your appearance. Collagen production in your skin decreases, causing it to loosen and lead to sagging skin around your jaw and neck. If left unchecked, this may cause you to have jowls or a turkey “gobbler”. The collagen decrease also creates wrinkles around your mouth and eyes. The muscles in these areas contract to create facial expressions, causing your skin to fold and crease. Over time, these folds become ingrained in your skin, resulting in line and wrinkles.
FaceTite and NeckTite use lasers to correct these problems. The laser emits pulses of heat energy which boost collagen production. As your collagen levels increase, your skin begins tightening from the inside out. Wrinkles become less obvious and the contouring of your jaw and neck in improved. Your skin also becomes smoother as the treatment takes effect.
The laser also targets fat cells, causing them to shrink or be destroyed. This is especially helpful around your neck because extra fat in this area can cause you to have a double chin or a “gobbler”. When the fat cells are reduced or eliminated, you will have improved contouring in your face and neck.
The laser treatments are very simple and straightforward. The doctor carefully selects the treatment areas according to the patient’s specific needs and goals. He applies a special gel to the area to protect the skin. The laser pulses are then emitted from a handheld device which is slowly passed over your skin, similar to an ultrasound. As the device moves, laser pulses are sent deep into your skin to target fat cells and heat your skin to boost collagen production.
The FaceTite and NeckTite devices use internal probes as well as external probes for maximum coverage. The internal probe is placed through a very tiny incision. Depending on the extent of your treatment, you may require multiple incision sites. These incisions are very small, however, and will not require stitches.
The total amount of treatment time will vary from patient to patient, but it may take anywhere from 1-3 hours. After the session is complete, you will be able to leave the doctor’s office.
InMode devices are becoming a standard item in cosmetic surgery practices around the country. This is because InMode Aesthetic provides laser tools that are safe, effective, and easy to use. Their products accomplish the same goals as other laser technologies but with less pain, less discomfort, and faster results. Built-in safety features keep the heat levels under control and at safe temperatures to prevent external damage to the skin.
As with other laser technologies, InMode lasers can be combined with other cosmetic treatments to enhance the results. For example, dermal fillers are commonly used to improve the skin’s texture and quality. InMode laser systems can be combined with dermal fillers to give your results an extra boost in quality and durability.
These devices are capable of treating a variety of skin issues, including skin laxity, uneven texture and tone, wrinkles, and unwanted fat deposits. By choosing an InMode laser system for your needs, you are getting the best possible technology to help you achieve your skin goals.
