Some of technologies used for Anti-aging and non-surgical face lift

Elos ReFirme

Description: It Use RF, Infra Red and 900-nm Diode. This treatment tightens skin, including jowl and neck laxity, sagginess under the eyes, saggy brow lines without surgery.

How it's done: ReFirme treatments generate results at both the epidermal and deep dermal levels. The applicator combines pulses of infrared light simultaneously with bipolar radio frequency (RF). The intersection RF currents and diode fluencies create a controlled, focused thermal energy. Contact cooling protects the epidermis and directs the RF energy into the dermis treatment zone.
Recovery: Minimal downtime after the procedure
Complications: Some patients exhibit some short term local redness.
Cost:  $200 - $500

LumiLift - Soli Tone

Description: It uses LED light, Ultra Sound and Micro Current. The LumiLift procedure is a new way of rejuvenating the skin and lifting sagging muscles. It  combine two proven technologies: Light energy and Microionized currents to treat conditions in the epidermis, dermis, and muscular levels of the face, décolleté and hands.

How it's done: A pulsating non-invasive light is directed at the skin surface which pass through the layers of the skin and penetrates into the dermis. This powerful light stimulates the fibroblast cell to produce more collagen. The increased production of collagen smoothes and softens the appearance of wrinkles, reduce the size of pores, and improves skin texture with increased skin elasticity. At the same time, the electrodes emit Microionized current to tone and lift sagging muscles. At the end of the treatment, an antioxidant product is infused into your skin using 2 special electrodes to smooth away facial creases.
Recovery: No downtime.
Complications: Minimal discomfort, mostly due to blinking lights.
Cost: 200 and up per treatment

The blue tint darkens the tiny folds of the skins surface to increase the contrast and allow the hand held device to read the contours of the face, the laser produces microscopic sites for thermal impact to the skin. The healthy tissue between treatment zones contains cells that promote rapid renewal of the outer skin layers. Meanwhile, the microthermals wounds penetrate a week apart are recommended. Each treatments lasts 30 min.

Recovery: No downtime.
Complications: Some patients may experience a brief reddening or swelling of the skin, similar to sunburn.
Cost: $250 and up

Aloma Accent

Description: This is RF and suction machine that use unipolar and bipolar handpiece for deep dermal heat up to 15 mm and for the treatment of cellulites and other body-reshaping therapies.
How it's done: The mechanism of the ACCENT is the periodic rotation of water molecules in the area to be treated. The rotating water molecules produce a mechanical effect (friction) which is converted into specific heat. It reaches adipose tissue and reduces cellulites.
Recovery: Minimal
