Combining Radio Frequency with Other Treatments

CoolSculpting and truSculpt
CoolSculpting is a revoluationary, FDA cleared fat reduction treatment that involves a unique cooling process. The treatment is designed to freeze off the unwanted fat cells in targeted areas of the body. The frozen cells gradually disintegrate and get removed from the body with the natural metabolic process. This helps restore an improved body contour in the treated area.
This treatment can sometimes be combined with truSculpt body contouring system for patients who also suffer from the appearance of cellulite in the affected areas. truSculpt involves focused delivery of powerful radio frequency energy along with an advanced system for temperature monitoring and feedback. This allows for uniform and deep delivery of RF energy for optimal reduction of cellulite.
Ultrashape and truSculpt
Ultrashape treatment employs safe pulsed ultrasound energy to spot-reduce stubborn fats from areas such as buttocks, thighs, flanks and abdomen. Ultrashape can be combined with truSculpt to achieve more comprehensive results in the form of fat reduction as well as cellulite reduction for smoother and aesthetically more appealing results.
Liposonix and truSculpt
Liposonix Custom Contouring System makes use of high intensity focused ultrasound energy to target fatty tissue and remove the last stubborn inch from the affected areas. When combined with truSculpt, the overall treatment can not only help the patient achieve the desired body contours, but also minimize the condition of cellulite for more consistent and attractive results.

truSculpt

truSculpt Body Contouring System is designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite through the focused delivery of powerful radio frequency energy. The revolutionary truSculpt technology features an advanced temperature monitoring and feedback system that allows for real time readings of skin temperature. This ensures uniform and deep delivery of heat energy for optimal efficacy.

It allows for successful break down of stubborn fat cells in common trouble zones such as hips, thighs and flanks as well as temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. truSculpt system ensures patient comfort and minimizes complications such as over-treatment, under-treatment, and pinching.

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is one of the most popular fat reduction non-invasive treatments today. This FDA approved treatment was developed by Harvard scientists, and is designed to reduce stubborn and unwanted fat cells accumulated in areas such as buttocks, waist, thighs, and abdomen. In direct contrast to various thermal or heat based techniques, CoolSculpting employs a revolutionary cooling process to disintegrate unwanted fat cells.
This cooling process called cryolipolysis involves the breakdown of fat cells present in persistent fatty deposits. Once the fat cells have been frozen due to exposure to cool temperatures, they are gradually removed from the body through the natural metabolic process. No damage is caused to the external skin layers or the adjacent healthy tissue.

Liposonix

Liposonix Custom Contouring System is aimed at reducing the waistline and improving the appearance of unwanted muffin tops and love handles. The goal of this treatment is to target the last stubborn inch and help the patient achieve the desired body contours. Liposonix can be an effective support to a diet and exercise program that has neared saturation.
Liposonix delivers high intensity focused ultrasound energy to the targeted fatty tissue to cause disintegration of the unwanted fat cells. A single one-hour treatment session can produce an average reduction in the waistline of about one inch. Results with this treatment are uniform and consistent.

Rogaine vs. Propecia to Treat Baldness

Rogaine vs. Propecia to Treat Baldness

Hair Loss | Rogaine | Propecia | Male Baldness | Northern VirginiaModern Body Contouring & Laser Center offers a range of surgical as well as non-invasive treatments to address different conditions of hair thinning, shortening of hair, and male and female pattern baldness. Each patient’s condition is unique, and may require a customized treatment to meet their specific aesthetic needs.
Propecia and Rogaine are two major, clinically proven topical treatments to treat hair loss in men in varying degrees. MBody receives patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond and surrounding communities.

Propecia

Propecia treatment is based on a medication called Finasteride. This treatment has been approved by the FDA to treat male pattern baldness. It is the first drug in history to address the condition of male pattern baldness effectively in a majority of men. The treatment is designed to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme that converts testosterone into a more androgen called DHT.
When taken regularly, a one mg dose of Propecia can effectively reduce DHT levels in the scalp of men. DHT is known to cause miniaturization or shrinkage in the hair follicle. Therefore, when DHT levels are reduced with Propecia, it can stop the progression of hair loss in men. Propecia is considered to be a medically proven solution to arrest the process of hair loss by about 60 percent reduction in DHT levels.
Finasteride is recommended by the American Hair Loss Association as a first line of combat against male pattern baldness. Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center provides this proven and effective non-invasive treatment for hair loss to men in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, and nearby locations.

Rogaine

Rogaine or Minoxidil was the earliest drug that received the FDA’s approval for treatment of male pattern baldness. Researchers discovered that a regular intake of this drug in pill form resulted in growth of hair in various parts of the body as an unintended side effect. This is when trials were conducted to determine how far minoxidil could topically lead to increase growth of hair on balding areas in the scalp of men.
Minoxidil or Rogaine has been clinically proven to slow the pace of progression of hair loss, and even trigger partial hair regrowth. However, some experts view it as a relatively less effective treatment option in the battle against male pattern baldness. The challenge is that Minoxidil does not impact the hormonal process of hair loss, which can yield temporary or disappointing results in some cases.
However, Rogaine is still recommended by the American Hair Loss Association as the drug of choice for patients who may not respond favorably to Propecia treatment. In some cases, the hair treatment expert may suggest adding Rogaine as an additional treatment to an existing regimen.
The American Hair Loss Association has not recommended Rogaine as the first line of combat for men who experience male pattern baldness. However, its usage is recommended on a case to case basis as an effective treatment for certain types of patients.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Restoration

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Restoration
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the latest and highly promising treatments for hair restoration. The treatment is non-surgical and promotes hair re-growth in a natural and sustainable manner.

What is PRP therapy?

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a revolutionary treatment designed to address hair loss in men and women without invasive surgery. The treatment is based on the principles of advanced cell therapy, cell multiplication, and growth factors.
As the name suggests, the therapy involves exposing the targeted areas of the scalp to platelet-rich plasma, which can stimulate natural growth of hair. The treatment may be performed as a stand-alone procedure or as a part of hair transplant surgery to achieve more effective hair re-growth results.

What are the Benefits of PRP?

PRP therapy can benefit in multiple ways. When the patient is receiving a hair transplant treatment, the separated PRP is injected into the donor area to support healing and minimize scarring. Each individual graft is treated with PRP before its transplantation to promote more significant hair re-growth.
PRP is also injected directly into the recipient areas of the scalp where the grafts are placed. This speeds up healing and supports re-growth of grafts. The treatment also supports re-growth in the crown area where the tendency of re-growth is typically lower.

How many treatments are needed?

In many cases, a single PRP treatment may be sufficient to achieve the desired goals. The complete process may take about 90 minutes in a single treatment session. Drawing and processing of the patient’s blood for the injectable treatment will take the bulk of time.
Reviews will be conducted typically at the end of the second and sixth weeks to assess the healing and monitor early results. Multiple treatments may be recommended for patients, depending on the requirements of a particular case.

How much downtime is involved?

When PRP therapy is performed as a stand-alone procedure, it may involve a minimal downtime of one to two days because of the non-surgical treatment. However, in case it is combined with hair transplant surgery, no extra downtime is involved, and it will be a part of the regular transplantation process.

Will the procedure hurt?

PRP therapy is an injection-based procedure, which will not involve any significant pain or discomfort when it is performed individually. Pain medication or topical numbing agents may be used to keep the patient comfortable during the treatment.

What kind of results can be expected?

The PRP treatment experts will customize the treatment according to the hair loss pattern and severity of hair loss. Patients with progressive hair loss can expect positive results. Those who are receiving hair transplant surgery can achieve more sustainable hair re-growth. Hair loss will slow down or even stoppage of hair loss in progressive cases may occur with PRP.

How is PRP therapy procedure performed?

The PRP therapy involves the use of patient’s own blood. The blood is collected through injections and passed through a centrifugal process. This enables the separation of platelet rich plasma from the blood, which contains natural hair growth factors. This component is employed actively in the targeted areas of the scalp as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with hair transplant surgery.

Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy

DermaPen Collagen Induction Therapy
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Microneedling is an innovative non-surgical solution to restore firmer, smoother, and more youthful looking skin. Microneedling uses state of the art micro-needling technology that is designed to achieve safe and predictable anti-aging results.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is an advanced collagen induction treatment that stimulates the skin in a minimally invasive manner through controlled wounding process. The process triggers the release of natural growth factors, including production of fresh collagen and elastin to tighten the skin from within. The procedure is safer and causes much less damage to the epidermis in comparison to other techniques such as lasers or derma rolling and other ablative therapies.

How many Microneedling treatments are required?

The treatment provider will usually recommend a series of three microneedling collagen induction treatments, spaced one month apart from each other. A few patients with deeper wrinkles or severe sun damage may require more treatment sessions.
 

How much downtime is involved?

Microneedling barely involves any downtime, and most patients will recover by the next day. Some redness in the treated areas could persist the next day, but overall the patient will be fine.

Is the microneedling procedure painful?

The treatment provider will apply a topical numbing cream before the treatment. Most patients report almost no pain or discomfort following microneedling treatment with a topical numbing agent.

Who is a remarkable candidate?

microneedling collagen induction treatment can be suitable for people with any skin type, and it can address a wide range of aesthetic skin concerns. The treatment may be suitable for almost every area of the body.

When do the results become visible?

Results can be noticed after the first microneedling treatment in most cases. Individual response will vary, but it is common for positive results to start appearing as early as one to two weeks following the first treatment session.

How long do the results last?

The results with microneedling collagen induction therapy can last for as long as one year after just one treatment. However, multiple treatments are usually required to achieve optimal results. The treatment provider may also recommend a home skin care regiment along with this treatment for more sustainable outcomes.

How will the treatment impact immediate appearance?

While the microneedling involves almost no downtime, the skin will appear moderately pink or red in many cases immediately after the treatment. The treatment expert may recommend skin care products to minimize these symptoms and improve overall results.

Is it advisable to use make-up following Microneedling treatment?

Immediately after the treatment, it is advisable to use only mineral based foundation to prevent the formation of bacterial growth. About four to five days after the treatment, the patient may return to regular foundation use.

How is the Microneedling procedure performed?

Microneedling procedure involves automated micro-needling. Tiny needles are applied to generate controlled micro-wounds in the skin in order to promote fresh production of collagen and elastin. The procedure also creates superficial micro-channels for better absorption of topical serums and creams, resulting in more effective outcomes.
