With age comes a price, and it can come in the form of wrinkles, blemishes, sun damage, stretch marks, scars, and unwanted, exercise-resistant fat, but can thankfully all be treated with the innovative lasers and technologies available today. Dr. Rokhsar was an invited skin resurfacing presenter at the 9th Asian Dermatological Congress held in Hong Kong in July and toured Korea, Japan, and Taiwan. He exchanged his knowledge and expertise on the most innovative advancements in recent research and studies on lasers.
For those seeking non-surgical solutions for skin tightening, body contouring, and pigmentation, laser dermatologists provide an expertise that’s unsurpassed. Dr. Cameron Rokhsar will shared his knowledgeable experience, and discuss the latest advancements in laser surgery with other world leaders in July.
The most prominent leading authorities on aesthetic surgery and cosmetic dermatology in the world will be attending the 9th Annual Asian Dermatological Congress hosted in Hong Kong. The progressive multidisciplinary meeting is designed to bring new aesthetic procedures, products and technologies through an interactive and educational format to provide important innovations and advanced educational experiences for the leading physicians.
Dr. Rokhsar presented the most up-to-date research and his techniques for laser skin resurfacing. As an expert in the field of skin resurfacing using laser, light and ultrasound technology, Dr. Rokhsar discussed the clinical applications of Fraxel Dual and Liposonix.
Fraxel relies on fractional laser resurfacing technology, which utilizes a laser to improve skin texture and is used to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical conditions such as acne scars, traumatic scars, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and loose skin. The Dual is a non-ablative fractional thulium laser, which means it administers micro damage to the target areas of treatment, which in turn stimulates collagen production. Located in the dermis, the layer located just beneath the epidermis, collagen has the ability to partially reverse the aging process. One of the best and most effective tools for ridding of wrinkles is the Fraxel laser.
Non-invasive treatments can even serve as a promising treatment for modest fat reduction. Liposonix uses a high-intensity ultrasound therapy to target and destroy fat. Ultrasound is a safe alternative for those that are surgery averse, as it has been used as a medical treatment for physicians to monitor the progress of a woman’s pregnancy for years. This treatment can be used to selectively treat and get rid of fat that accumulates in the waist, abdomen, love handles and thighs. The non-invasive system works to permanently get rid of targeted fat in just one 1-hour treatment.
For those seeking a non-surgical treatment to slowing down the aging process, Ultherapy is a treatment that also utilizes ultrasound technology, but to tighten and lift the skin’s surface. Using the sound waves, Ultherapy uniquely provides the physicians with an image that is reflected back onto a screen. The sounds waves form a picture of what is inside the body that allows Dr. Rokhsar to actually see as he performs the procedure. The tiny deposits of ultrasound energy stimulate collagen growth below the dermis, which ultimately replaces and strengthens the older collagen. The targeted fat is then naturally processed through the body, which provides progressive results that can be seen within eight to 12 weeks.
