Minimally and non-invasive laser and EBD for facial rejuvenation: what works what doesn’t
Facial aging involves alteration of skin, sagging of tissues and modification of fatty tissue which can be addressed by minimally- and non-invasive lasers and energy based devices (EBD’s).
Fiber-based laser and needle-based radiofrequency (RF) devices tighten skin and reduce unwanted fat on face and neck. Non-invasive technologies – ablative and non-ablative laser as well as radiofrequency (RF) devices – improve skin texture, wrinkles and scars. These non-surgical procedures are safe and effective for the treatment of skin laxity and texture and fat removal.
Downtime is minimal. Results are reliable, predictable and long lasting. Each of these procedures has its specific indication, advantage and disadvantage. Combining technologies, tissue tightening from inside out and outside in, enhances the results in facial rejuvenation.
