Noninvasive Methods for Lower Facial Rejuvenation.

Clin Plast Surg 2018 Oct 31;45(4):571-584. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Clinical Center for Cosmetic Laser Treatment, 1801 Inwood Road, Dallas, TX 75390-9132, USA.

Demand for noninvasive aesthetic medicine options is increasing because of the popularity of nonsurgical procedures and industry's focus on direct-to-consumer marketing. Such techniques as nonablative and ablative lasers, intense pulsed light, radiofrequency, high-intensity focused ultrasound, and skin care with peeling agents may also be used in conjunction with surgery to optimize overall aesthetic results. To maximize benefits, the provider must have a detailed understanding of the science behind each device. Read More

Ways of Noninvasive Facial Skin Tightening and Fat Reduction.

Facial Plast Surg 2016 Jun 1;32(3):276-82. Epub 2016 Jun 1.

Department of Paediatric Dermatology, Colentina Clinica Hospital, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania.

For skin tightening, ablative and nonablative lasers have been used with various parameters full or fractionated. Currently, other energy-based technologies have been developed such as radiofrequency (RF) from mono- to multipolar, microneedling RF, and high-intensity focused ultrasound. They heat up the tissue to a clinical endpoint. Read More

Skin tightening technologies.

Facial Plast Surg 2014 Feb 31;30(1):62-7. Epub 2014 Jan 31.

Dr. Brandt Dermatology Associates, Coral Gables, Florida.

Radiofrequency (RF) and intense focused ultrasound (IFUS) are increasingly used to address skin laxity of the face and neck. Both nonablative RF and ultrasound create a heat-induced tissue response that leads to collagen remodeling and other ultrastructural changes. Although these treatments are not meant to replace surgical procedures, patient satisfaction in the majority of studies has been consistently high. Read More

Radiofrequency in cosmetic dermatology.

Dermatol Clin 2014 Jan;32(1):79-90

The Maryland Laser, Skin, and Vein Institute, 54 Scott Adam Road, Hunt Valley, MD 21030, USA. Electronic address:

The demand for noninvasive methods of facial and body rejuvenation has experienced exponential growth over the last decade. There is a particular interest in safe and effective ways to decrease skin laxity and smooth irregular body contours and texture without downtime. These noninvasive treatments are being sought after because less time for recovery means less time lost from work and social endeavors. Read More

Ultrasound skin tightening.

Dermatol Clin 2014 Jan;32(1):71-7

Department of Dermatology, Northwestern University, 676 North St Clair Street, Suite 1600, Chicago, IL 60611, USA.

Ultrasound skin tightening is a noninvasive, nonablative method that allows for energy deposition into the deep dermal and subcutaneous tissue while avoiding epidermal heating. Ultrasound coagulation is confined to arrays of 1-mm(3) zones that include the superficial musculoaponeurotic system and connective tissue. This technology gained approval from the Food and Drug Administration as the first energy-based skin "lifting" device, specifically for lifting lax tissue on the neck, submentum, and eyebrows.

Authors:
Michael Stampar

Facial Plast Surg Clin North Am 2011 May;19(2):335-45

Devices using radiofrequency (RF) energy and electrical energy to deliver a controlled thermal injury to heat skin have proliferated within the nonablative skin treatment market since the introduction of Thermage in 2002. By delivering continuous monopolar RF energy, rather than pulsed heating, and repeatedly bringing the skin to therapeutic temperatures until maximal contraction is obtained, the Pelleve Procedure can give obvious cosmetic results confluently over all treated areas painlessly and with no downtime. In this article, the technique, mechanism of continuous RF heating, and apparent treatment requirements to produce these results are presented. Read More

A novel method for real-time skin impedance measurement during radiofrequency skin tightening treatments.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2011 Mar;10(1):24-9

O.R. Medical Center, Herzlya, Israel.

The thermal effects of monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency (RF) have been proven to be beneficial in skin tightening. Nevertheless, these effects were frequently partial or unpredictable because of the uncontrolled nature of monopolar or unipolar RF and the superficial nature of energy flow for bipolar or tripolar configurations. One of the hypotheses for lack or predictability of efficacy of the first-generation RF therapy skin tightening systems is lack of adaptation of delivered power to differences in individual skin impedance.

Thermage: the nonablative radiofrequency for rejuvenation.

Clin Dermatol 2008 Nov-Dec;26(6):602-7

Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, New York, NY 10016, USA.

Thermage is a noninvasive nonablative device that uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to bulk heat underlying skin while protecting the epidermis to produce skin tightening. It is used for the treatment of rhytids on the face including the periorbital region and lower face, and more recently, for off-face applications. Studies have shown that it can impart mild tightening of periorbital mid, and lower facial laxity. Read More

Authors:
Michael Kulick

J Cosmet Laser Ther 2005 Jun;7(2):87-92

Bay Area Plastic Surgery Center, USA.

Nonablative wrinkle reduction or skin tightening is desired by individuals who, ideally, hope to have the skin improvement associated with chemical or laser ablative techniques but without the undesirable recovery process. Electro-optical synergy (ELOS) technology that combines radio frequency (RF) and diode laser energy (900 nm) was used to treat 15 patients in this IRB sanctioned study. Energy settings were based on the depth of wrinkles (the greater the depth and concentration of wrinkles, the higher the RF setting) and ranged from 50-100 J/cm2 RF and 15 J/cm2 for the optical, laser component.

Current concepts in nonablative radiofrequency rejuvenation of the lower face and neck.

Facial Plast Surg 2005 Feb;21(1):65-73

Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, New York Medical College, Valhalla, USA.

With the multitude of treatment options and emerging technology available for rejuvenation of the lower face and neck, it is often difficult to determine which specific treatment would benefit an individual patient. Monopolar radiofrequency (MRF) nonablative skin rejuvenation is a promising new procedure that is utilized to tighten and contour nonsurgically mild to moderate laxity of the skin of the lower face and neck in patients without significant underlying structural ptosis. In these selected patients and others who wish to avoid surgical treatment modalities, MRF treatment offers a noninvasive method of tightening skin and soft tissue, causing softening of the nasolabial lines, tightening of the jowl, and improving the definition of the cervicomental angle, all without significant recovery time or complications.
