Today’s skin care market has changed throughout the decades. There are a variety of new types of skin care available today, four of which are:
- DPC (Dynamic Pulse Control) technology
- Radio Frequency Treatments
- Infrared Therapy
These types of skin care improvements involve non-invasive techniques that have been time tested for effectiveness. They can be used alone or in combination, according to the needs of the patient. The treatments include:
- Hair reduction
- Lessening of Pigmented Lesions
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Acne Treatment
- Removing vascular lesions
DPC Technology (more highly-focused intense pulsed light):
DPC provides three pulse configurations, including smooth pulse, short pulse, or long pulse. These applications are completely non-invasive using external methods entirely as the process is completed for the patient. Treatments stimulate healing for all skin types. The pulses can be administered either quickly (which is more aggressive) or longer pulses (this gives a longer time to deliver the light beam). Each different application makes it easier for the professional to give safer and more effective treatments to the patient. The results are maximized and can be tailored to each patient.
Radio Frequency Treatments:
Radiofrequency treatments are performed using tiny needles combined with the use of an x-ray machine into areas where pain is being felt, or where cancers exist, and then transmit radio waves to heal injured areas. A professional can gauge the intensity of the patient’s needs in order to receive the best results. RF treatments can be applied to relieve lower back or neck pain, as well as easing joint pain caused by arthritis. RF treatment is applied in typically ranges from 850- to 1750nm pulses. With alternative pulse frequencies, the professional is able to control temperatures that reach different layers of skin in varying depths.
Infrared therapy is based on applying a wavelength of infrared beams in micro-second applications (measured in nanometres, or nm).Infrared therapy does not just hide the symptoms, like medicines, but encourages healing of the cause of the pain. Infrared Therapy is one of the most sophisticated technologies for treatments such as body contouring, firming skin and skin rejuvenation.
Laser technology is used in cosmetic treatments (both intrusive and non-intrusive, depending on the results desired). Various treatments that laser therapy range from hair reduction, skin maintenance (from wrinkles or scars from acne), removal of blemishes (these include moles or age spots). Laser can also be used for tattoo removal, teeth whitening or skin discolorations like birthmarks. Your health professional will be able to discuss the treatments that you would benefit from the most. Skin care technology is advancing in leaps and bounds. Take advantage today!
