When the Body becomes Flabby…

Because of its lack of appropriate methods, body skin tightening was once aesthetic medicine’s poor relation. Now there are two extremely effective technologies that can be used to tighten and smooth the tissues. Renuvion – plasma energy for lasting firm skin Renuvion, a process based on helium plasma with the efficiency of highly focused energy, is still very new. The Rosenpark Klinik is the first clinic in Germany and one of the first in Europe to use this method. It can be applied to tighten sagging skin on the legs, arms, buttocks, back or neck and décolleté in a very unique way. The dual thermal effect produced tightens the tissue so gently that the risk of side effects is very low in comparison with other procedures such as laser. Why? Plasma technology allows the connective tissue to be heated precisely and then immediately cooled back to skin temperature. Local anesthesia and small incisions Renuvion can be performed as a stand-alone treatment or, if necessary, directly after liposuction. Immediately after liposuction, the 4 mm thin handpiece is inserted into the same mini incisions made for the liposuction cannula. This means that no additional incisions are required. To ensure that the procedure is painless, the area to be treated is numbed using local tumescent anesthesia in the same way as with liposuction. Treatment with the Renuvion handpiece is fan shaped. The surgeon moves the device in opposite directions at one centimeter per second. The helium plasma beam penetrates the entire tissue, tightens it directly under the skin and stimulates the formation of new collagen. Four to six passes are necessary, requiring 20 to 45 minutes. But then it’s done. Only one intervention is necessary for a lasting result. Potential immediate effect In many cases, the effect can already be seen immediately after treatment. Significant improvement and smoothing of the skin occurs within the next six months which is the time it takes for new collagen to form. The adhesion of the tissue stimulated by the procedure ensures optimized wound healing and tightening of the tissues in all layers. In the first few days after treatment, slight wound pain, similar to that of aching muscles, is possible. Otherwise, the patient feels fit again right away, without significant downtime. If Renuvion is performed as part of a liposuction, one should plan three to four days of rest. Although there are no physical restrictions, wearing a compression garment is essential for about two to four weeks.… weiterlesen

Fine Tuning for the Body

Fewer dents, firmer skin and a slimmer silhouette Minimally invasive body-shaping is the magic formula by which all of this can be achieved. No surgery, no pain, no downtime. Sounds too good to be true, but state-of-the-art technologies such as micro-focused ultrasound or radiofrequency can make it possible. The two methods differ in their depth effect. “In contrast to radiofrequency, micro-focused ultrasound penetrates into deeper tissue layers and provides an immediate as well as a long-term tightening effect without damaging the skin surface. The controlled and specifically applied heat of up to 70 degrees causes fat cells to melt,” says Dr. Carmen Cecilia Duma, Rosenpark Klinik. A proper patient selection by the doctor and a reliable diagnosis are therefore particularly important here. One thing one must be aware of: neither of these therapies can be compared with the possibilities offered by liposuction or classical body lifting. Only smaller problem zones can be treated, but these with surprising and satisfactory results. Micro-focused ultrasound The ultra-modern ultrasound technology tightens sagging skin areas. At the same time, it improves the structure of the skin and connective tissue and contours the shape. The most rewarding areas of treatment are the décolleté, upper arms, armpits, waist, stomach, thighs and knees. Dr. Duma: “Invisible micro-injuries in the deep tissue layer stimulate the new formation of both collagen and elastin. The skin gradually becomes tighter and firmer thereby creating a natural lifting effect “. The highly focused ultrasound waves are transmitted through the skin directly into the deeper connective tissue via a movable sound and treatment head. There they stimulate the body’s own regeneration process and stimulate the formation of new collagen. Fat cells are melted away then flushed out of the body naturally over the course of the next few weeks. The effect of this is that the treated region is shaped and smaller problem zones optimized. The device has different handpieces which allow the specific treatment of various target areas. Pain free and suitable for everyday use Although no anesthesia is necessary, an anesthetic cream is applied an hour before the treatment to make it as pleasant as possible for the patient. The daily routine can be resumed Immediately after the therapy and no special aftercare is necessary. The full effect develops over a period of three weeks to six months showing a significantly firmer, fresher skin and slimmer contours. As a rule, one treatment is enough.… weiterlesen

Well Rolled! Pinprick by Pinprick to a more Beautiful Skin

Micro-fine needle pricks improve the appearance of the skin. Especially effective in combination with Radio Frequency. “My insider tip for a radiant, healthy skin is the combination of Hyaluron skin booster and Dermaroller,” says Dr. Sonja Sattler, Head of Bellari Frankfurt. “With skin boost, the particularly low-viscosity hyaluronic acid is injected over a large area into the uppermost layer of the skin. This creates a glow effect and a special radiance to the face. Wrinkles are eliminated and, due to the water-binding property of Hyaluronic Acid, the skin stays moisturised and padded from the inside for a longer period of time. The Dermaroller ensures new collagen formation through the desired micro-injuries on the skin surface.” As a result, the entire skin appears finer, smaller-pored and rejuvenated. And, last but not least, scars of all kinds can be corrected as well. What is a Dermaroller? A Dermaroller or Dermapen is a handy roller with microfine needles which it’s why it’s also known as Microneedling. The needle length varies from 0.5 to 1.5 millimetres, depending on the requirements and body region. The microfine punctures simulate injuries to the skin without really damaging the tissue and the cells around the puncture canal are stimulated to produce more collagen. What is the exact treatment? First of all, the area to be treated is thoroughly cleansed and an anaesthetic cream applied. This requires 20 – 30 minutes to take effect after which the practitioner rolls the Dermaroller over the face for about 20 minutes. If necessary, individual areas can be treated several times and more intensively. A disposable sterile device is used for each patient. Dermarollers with shorter needles are also available for use at home. However, one should first be shown how to use them by a professional before attempting the procedure oneself. In cases of acne, it is best to leave it alone. Is one presentable after the treatment? Absolutely. The skin is slightly reddened at first, but this can be easily concealed with make-up. The redness disappears completely after 3-4 days and what remains is an improved skin structure. The treatment can be repeated at any time. What is the difference between this and Needling plus Radio Frequency? The combination of multipolar Radio Frequency technology (RF) and Microneedling leads to a fractional treatment of the skin. This makes it possible to tackle several skin problems simultaneously. The procedure is particularly suitable as an anti-aging measure since it counteracts the signs of skin aging: Wrinkles and loss of elasticity or sagging skin around the chin.… weiterlesen

The New Art of Body Shaping…

…but it doesn’t always have to mean surgery The days of Size Zero are over – looking healthy and fit is considered sexy today and a lot can be achieved with regular exercise and a healthy diet. Nevertheless, there are parts of the body that even these can’t influence. Sometimes even the strictest diet and the most strenuous workout can’t help, especially in cases of genetically misplaced fat deposits or sagging skin after weight loss. Nature takes its toll as well and during the aging process, metabolic processes slow down, altering the hormone balance. The ratio of fat to muscle mass changes: Men suddenly develop breasts or so-called “love handles” in the hip area. With women it is often around the abdomen including the back, the “riding breeches” or the inner thighs. Liposuction is no substitute for a diet Every year the Rosenpark Klinik treats over 2000 patients in the field of body shaping. Of these, alone more than 1000 of them undergo liposuction which permanently reduces the excess amount of fat cells in the affected areas and the balances the silhouette. Those who believe that liposuction is a means to reduce weight are mistaken. “The sole purpose here is the harmonization of the body form and the removal of problem zones”, says Dr. Gerhard Sattler, head of the Rosenpark Klinik. The problem frequently addressed is that of the “riding breeches”. Regardless of whether they are slim or somewhat sturdier, countless women suffer from this unattractive deformation of the thighs which stems from an overabundance of fat cells. Liposuction is a proven method of reduction in this case and even if the patient gains weight over time, these disproportionate bulges will not develop again at the same place. “As an experienced practitioner, however, I always have to take the overall picture into consideration,” says Sattler. “The removal of a problem zone alone does not by any means ensure a beautiful body shape. In most cases, it therefore makes sense to treat further areas in order to create a harmonious silhouette”. The Vibration Cannula technique and Tumescent Local Anesthesia For over 19 years, several liposuction procedures have been performed daily at the Rosenpark Klinik. The vibration cannula technique is used in tumescent local anesthesia to remove excess fatty tissue painlessly and sustainably. Tumescent local anesthesia is a mixture of saline solution and local anesthetics. It not only numbs the tissue but softens the fat cells as well.… weiterlesen
