O que está surgindo de novo para flacidez na face e pescoço?

No Teraderm de 2012 foi apresentado uma sessão sobre flacidez facial. Entre os mestres em Laser foi discutido esse tema e o que achei muito interessante que a maioria deles acharam que  a radiofrequencia monopolar ainda ë um dos melhores resultados encontrados , citaram também outros tratamentos como o laser CO2 fracionado tanto feito com padrões mais leve em várias sessões e o Infra Vermelho  para esse tipo de tratamento. O que eles ainda estáo incerto sobre o resultado é sobre o  Ulthera® é uma nova modalidade de ultrassom micro focado possuindo efeito lifting, pois age diretamente no SMAS (Sistema Músculo Aponeurótico Superficial.), provocando retração na pele e melhorando a flacidez da face, pescoço e pálpebras, essa duvida é  porque aqui no Brasil o Ulthera é muito recente e ainda está sob observação perante os resultados.

Source Department of Dermatology, College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University , Seoul , Korea. Abstract Abstract Background: Infraorbital laxity is a common problem that increases with age. Blepharoplasty with lipectomy is a very commonly performed surgical procedure to treat this problem; however, it is invasive and is associated with the potential for re-emergence. Therefore, young patients may prefer a non-surgical procedure rather than to a surgical procedure. Intense-focused ultrasound (IFUS) has emerged as an effective, non-surgical, tissue-tightening procedure. Objective: This study assessed the safety and efficacy of IFUS (Ulthera(TM) system, Ulthera Inc, Mesa, AZ, USA) for facial tightening in Asian patients with infraorbital laxity. Methods: We studied 15 patients who were treated with an IFUS device applied to both lower eyelids. The primary outcome measure was an objective improvement in a paired comparison of pre-treatment and post treatment (6 months) photographs. A secondary outcome measure was patient satisfaction as measured by a questionnaire. Results: The mean patient age was 50 years (range, 27-69). All patients received one to two treatments with intense-focused ultrasound. All patients in the study experienced both subjective and objective improvement. Conclusion: IFUS can be used as a non-invasive, skin-tightening procedure for infraorbital laxity. No serious, permanent, or delayed side effects were noted up to 6 months post treatment. Thus, this procedure can be effective and safe in the treatment of decreased laxity of the lower eyelids.
