LED Laser Light BioScience® introduces GentleWaves® Elite collagen-replenishing technology, which features a portable design and an easy-to-use handpiece. GentleWaves is the first LED device to be approved by the FDA. GentleWaves’ patented LED photomodulation’s nonthermal, pulsing technology allows aestheticians to zero in and alter collagen formation without heat, preventing cellular injury. The Elite unit may be used on any area of the body. A patient’s entire face, neck, and chest may be treated in less than 5 minutes. LED photomodulation involves transmitting specific packets of light to change the biological activity of living cells by photomodulation coding—the specific parameters with which the low-intensity light is delivered to stimulate collagen formation while suppressing collagen-degrading enzymes. The system reduces redness and skin irritation after photofacials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.

Electronic Grooming Device ilift is an electronic grooming device by Laser.com that brings spa-quality facial treatments to the home. In just 15 minutes, ilift reduces the depth of wrinkles, firms facial muscles, and improves skin conditions such as acne. ilift uses microdermal massage, IR rays, and negative and positive ions to offer the results of multiple spa treatments in one handheld electronic device. The soothing vibration of microdermal massage strengthens the skin’s elasticity; IR rays improve the circulation of blood vessels and speed up skin metabolism; and the negative and positive ions work together, above and below the skin. Negative ions attack facial bacteria and increase cellular resistance. Positive ions allow the skin to absorb the active ingredient of the LASERLIFT botAction creme, acetyl hexapeptide. Used in conjunction with ilift, the LASERLIFT botAction creme works like botulinum toxin Type A but does not require a needle. The creme’s active ingredient, Acetyl Hexapeptide, relaxes wrinkles by reducing the release of the chemicals that are responsible for muscle contractions associated with stress. LASERLIFT also contains rose hip extract and soybean protein, which exfoliate, reduce free radicals, stimulate collagen production, and help maintain hydration.

Cellulite Treatment MedSurge Advances offers Acoustic Wave Therapy™ (AWT), a treatment program for cellulite. AWT smoothes and firms the areas where cellulite commonly forms: the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and arms. Unlike most devices that pull on the skin or melt the fat under the skin, leaving the connective-tissue band that is pulling down and causing the dimple in the first place, AWT breaks the band and releases the dimple. It also increases the skin’s density, blood flow, and lymphatic drainage. The therapy consists of six treatments, with one follow-up treatment after 6 months.

Cellulite Laser Therapy Cynosure has received FDA clearance for its SmartlipoTM system for laser-assisted lipolysis or LaserBodySculptingSM, a procedure that disrupts fat cells and causes coagulation of the tissue to tighten skin. Laser-BodySculpting uses a small cannula that contains a laser fiber that is inserted into the skin and is passed throughout the treatment area. The laser’s energy is applied directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain. Treatments with the Smartlipo system generally result in less swelling and bleeding compared to traditional liposuction methods, and they can usually be performed in one 45-minute session.
