Aesthetic innovation of the face

At the level of the face, skin aging is marked by loss of volumes, decrease in elasticity and morphological modification of the surface epithelia (colour and consistency).

Therefore, a global treatment for the treatment of facial aging should envisage a multi-correction able to interact on the colours, elasticity and extensibility of the tissues concerned.

Because they are well tolerated by most patients, these procedures should be minimally invasive and have a long period of aesthetic correction.

Today, technological innovation through a "Multi Layer Therapy" strategy proposes targeted interventions with different drugs and devices for effective, safe and lasting aesthetic facial correction.

The lifting effect and volumisation of the anatomo-aesthetic unity of the face are now brilliantly achieved by specialists in the field through botulinum toxin and fillers that have achieved high levels of efficacy and safety through long research and continuous improvement.

Many methods are available on the market for metabolic reactivation of facial dermal tissues (peeling, radiofrequencies, lasers), through ablative and non-ablative electromagnetic sources. Despite having shown undoubted clinical efficacy, these methods presented some drawbacks related to interaction of the proposed treatments with surface epidermal tissues.

Today there is a new high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology for promoting controlled regeneration of the fibrillary and amorphous components of dermal tissue. A technology already successfully applied in the medical field for the treatment of malignant and benign solid lesions, focused ultrasound technology has proved to be extremely safe and effective even in the induction of micro dermal lesions (up to 5 mm in depth) which, by encouraging fibroblastic repair, clinically induces skin rejuvenation.

The great advantage of focused ultrasound therapy that has been recognised by the FDA is the ability to focus on histological damage deep inside dermal tissue, avoiding dangerous interactions with the epidermal component and promoting a non-surgical lifting effect.

This new therapeutic process represents a further opportunity that complements and completes the already important range of tools available to specialists: thanks to focused ultrasound, botulinum toxin and fillers, Multi Layer Therapy (MLT) has become a process accepted and promoted by different specialists in the world who recognise the value of continuous and innovative research in the treatment of skin aging.
