During the aging process, collagen produces at a slower rate relative to the rate of old collagen being broken down. The amount of hyaluronic acid declines, as do the elastic properties of elastin. Skin sags and wrinkles and rhytides appear. Radio frequency is effective for dermatological procedures requiring skin ablation and skin
resurfacing, and for the non-invasive treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles and rhytides. It activates the body’s natural healing processes to encourage the production of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid and generate new and healthy skin. Contracted fibers create an immediately noticeable tightened and rejuvenated effect on skin.
The Lumenis Solution
Legend M²™ treatment defeats the signs of aging by combining macro volumetric heating of the tissue with TriPollar® RF and precise micro heating of focal points with VoluDerm™ RF-assisted ultra-thin electrodes. Preheating with the TriPollar® technology lowers the tissue impedance and increases vasodilatation. During Legend M²™ treatment, the fibroblasts undergo two different triggers: minimally invasive and non-invasive. This dual effect creates a synergetic result. The suggested number of treatments may vary for each individual and their treatment areas. A typical course involves 3-5 treatments with touch-up treatments approximately every 3-6 months if needed, according to the individual’s needs.
