Dynamic Duo Treatments To Get Double The Aesthetic Benefits

resized-Oct-31-2022-10-48-43-3002-AMWhat is better than getting an aesthetic treatment? Combining two cutting edge aesthetic treatments that together give you quicker enhanced results to address your unique aesthetic goals. At illumia Medical we approach each patient’s concerns with a personalised protocol because we don’t believe that medical aesthetics is a one-size-fits all solution. Instead, we are committed to providing comprehensive, customised and long-term solutions to achieve our patients’ aesthetic goals. Here are some of the aesthetic goals our patients have and the customised treatments we offer.

The Goal: Clear and polished complexion
Dynamic Duo Solution: Pro Yellow Gold Laser + PicoSure

Let this dynamic duo rescue your skin from pigmentation, dull skin, enlarged pores, redness, acne and acne marks. Together they will also brighten and rejuvenate skin for a blemish-free, refreshed and glowing visage. The Pro Yellow Gold Laser uses dual 532nm Green wavelength and 577nm Yellow wavelength to target and breakdown haemoglobin legions and red pigment respectively. Because of the unique wavelengths and depth of penetration, this laser is able to tackle redness caused by rosacea, visible blood vessels, facial veins, acne and post acne erythema. The dual wavelengths also target acne causing bacteria, reduce inflammation and redness of active acne to reduce formation of acne. As the yellow light laser energy is absorbed deep into the skin it also stimulates collagen production, which gives you plump and firm skin.

The Pico Laser at illumia Medical also comes with dual wavelengths that allow it to work in both Q-switch and photo-thermal mode to target a wide variety of indications like pigmentation, dark spots, freckles, melasma, café au lait spots, solar lentigo as well as acne, wrinkles and dull skin for overall skin rejuvenation and brightening. It is able to do this because it emits lightning fast energy pulses—at the speed of one-trillionth a second—to break down pigmentation. The pigmentation is then naturally eliminated from the body. The same laser also helps stimulate production of collagen and elastin within the skin to improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles and pores.

The Goal: To lift and tighten skin
Dynamic Duo Solution: Thermage + Ulthera

Get the combined benefits of lifting, smoothing and tightening for your most defined visage (or tum, thighs and tush) with these two non-invasive treatments that are short, relatively painless and have little to no downtime. Radio frequency energy is proven to help stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen through mild, controlled heating which results in immediate skin smoothing and tightening. 5G Thermage® FLX™ uses this radio frequency energy to tighten lax skin at the upper and lower eyelids, jawline, chin and neck as well as loose skin and cellulite on abdomen, thighs, buttocks. illumia Medical’s 5G Thermage® FLX™ comes with four different applicators of different sizes, the most recent addition being the “Total Tip 4.0” with a larger surface that allows for faster results. Thanks to a variety of applicators, the treatment can be fully customised to deliver efficient, optimised results for your concerns.

While Thermage uses radio frequency energy to smooth and tighten, Ulthera complements it by lifting skin. It uses ultrasound energy to kick start the body’s natural collagen and elastin production within the deeper layers of the skin for an inside out approach to anti-ageing. What sets it apart from other ultrasound treatments is a proprietary ultrasound live imaging technology that allows the doctor to administer the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depth for the best results. This also ensures that energy is not delivered onto bones, which could be painful. Plus, this energy completely bypasses the upper layers of skin and doesn’t leave any marks or peeling or scarring.

 

The Goal: Defined and dewy visage
Dynamic Duo Solution: Elite IQ 5D Face Rejuvenation + illumia Skin Booster

If it’s a slimmer, snatched and radiant visage you’re after, the doctors at illumia medical will probably suggest combining these two treatments for best results. The Elite IQ 5D Face Rejuvenation treatment uses dual wavelengths of 755nm and 1064nm to non-invasively target the five layers of skin right from the superficial to the deepest layers to sculpt facial contours while also rejuvenating skin. Within a single session you will see improvements to the upper layer of skin. These include refined texture, reduced redness, stronger skin barrier and a radiant glow. At the deepest layers, this treatment helps blast fat deposits for a slimmer more defined visage: think that coveted V-shaped face. It also creates a photo-thermal effect that tightens fascia and kick-starts collagen and elastin production to help tighten and firm skin. It takes a little longer to notice these results—about eight to 12 weeks—as collagen production takes time. When combined with illumia Boosters that are packed with hyaluronic acid and illumia Medical’s proprietary blend of skin nourishing and repairing ingredients the skin becomes more resilient and truly dewy and glowing.
