To help celebrate Independence Day on the 4th of July, we are listing some of our top US-themed treatments:
Aimed to target hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), miraDry is a revolutionary treatment from the US that uses electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat glands. As sweat glands do not regenerate, results are lasting and the typical patient only requires one session of treatment.
2. Botulinum toxin
US company, Allergan, is the leading company to supply botulinum toxin. Its brand of the toxin is better known as Botox®, and it is this superior product that we use at PHI. It is an extremely prevalent treatment in the US, with over 4 million patients undergoing treatment per year. Botox relaxes the facial muscles to prevent deep lines and wrinkles.
This fat-busting cellulaze procedure from the US is an absolute wonder! A small laser fibre is introduced under the skin and targets the septae between fatty deposits. The heat energy breaks down the septae, which causes cellulite and this ‘cottage cheese’ effect, and then works to heat the surface of the skin to promote collagen production. This in turn contributes to the tightening of the skin.
Obagi produce medicated products with active ingredients that help target a variety of issues, such as acne, ageing, dehydration and skin imperfections.
The Vectus machine is the gold-standard for laser hair removal. Due to its larger head, treatment time for laser hair removal has been significantly decreased. Unlike traditional methods for hair removal, laser is less laborious, much faster, less painful and has longer-lasting results.
