New dermatology treatments abound
There are many new dermatology treatments being introduced all the time. In more than 20 years at Olympic Dermatology we’ve found some procedures work better for certain people, while other treatments are more effective some patients.
So we are on the forefront of a wide array of procedures, and always choose to offer those with the highest chance of success for a majority of our patients. In fact, every treatment we offer must be scientifically proven, repeatable and effective.
A couple newer treatments caught our eye but only one meets our high standards for patient efficacy, comfort and results.
Thermatight is an invasive procedure using “injectable radio frequency” with a cannula, or thin tube used in medical procedures, through a small incision in the skin. Called injectable energy, it’s designed to shape, smooth and form the face. It’s touted as an in-between solution and alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery and a topical, non-invasive approach, for patients who are asking for longer lasting treatments for frown lines and wrinkles of the face or neck.
Another, we believe better, option for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening, and one we’re currently evaluating at Olympic Dermatology for a possible clinical trial, is Lutronic Infini. It uses micro-cannulas to treat various depths of the dermis with less trauma to the skin and more comfort for the patient. A high intensity, focused radio frequency device, Infini delivers more consistent results and less downtime for the patient. It can be used at any time of the year and on any skin type, because it doesn’t directly affect the epidermis skin layer.
