ARTAS Robotic-Assisted Follicular Unit Extraction for Hair Restoration: Case Reports

Screen Shot 2016-04-21 at 10.53.21 AMFollicular unit extraction (FUE) is a graft harvest technique for hair restoration that offers the benefits of minimal postoperative pain and absence of linear scarring in the donor area. The demand for hair restoration procedures has rapidly increased, but the majority of physicians do not offer FUE as a treatment option for hair restoration because of the intensive training and experience required for proficiency.

The ARTAS System (Restoration Robotics, Inc), a computer-assisted robotic technology used to perform FUE, received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration and enables more physicians to perform FUE by minimizing the traditional learning curve, which has slowed the adoption of this technique. This article presents 2 clinical cases of patients with androgenetic alopecia who were  treated with FUE.

Slimspec features Acoustic Radial Wave Technology for Cellulite Treatment

Screenshot 2016-04-21 14.17.57Ongoing technological advancements have produced varying treatment modalities to address a gamut of aes-thetic concerns including cellulite. Powered by acoustic radial wave technology (ARWT), Slimspec™ from Medispec Ltd. (Germantown, Maryland, U.S.) is a very cost-effective device proving suc-cessful in the treatment of cellulite and skin tightening, rivaling other high-end aesthetic tools and techniques.

ARWT is unfocused, low pressure acoustic waves created by an electro-magnetic ballistic mechanism. These pressure waves are transmitted through the surface of the skin and spread radially into the tissue, affecting a large and deep treatment area. Acoustic radial waves have a very similar biological effect to extracorporeal shockwaves commonly used in urology (extracorporeal lithotripsy) and cardiology (extracorporeal shockwave for myocardial revascularization), among other specialties and indications. This novel technology has now also found its niche in aesthetic medicine for the painless treatment of cellulite and body firming.

IRIS 532nm laser for facial capillaries

clinical-paper-2-150x150Facial capillaries and treatments explained by Dr Adrian Lim MBBS, FACP, FACD Dermatologist and Vein Specialist Royal North Shore Hospital uRepublic Cosmetic Dermatology and Veins

Facial capillaries are commonly encountered in fair-skinned individuals. Rosacea is one of the more common causes of facial talangiectases that can be prominent on the nose, cheeks and chin and be associated with symptoms of fluting and burning. Facial telangiectases can also result from sun-damage, surgical scars, post-radiation, connective tissue disease and certain genetic syndromes.

Secret Of Anti-Ageing

clinical-paper-1-150x150Dr Juri Kirsten reports on his experiences of using the SECRET RF in medical aesthetic treatments for both the face and the body.

A variety of treatments have been introduced to prevent ageing skin, but SECRET RF is a new technology ideal for skin rejuvenation by applying highly controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy directly to a certain depth of the dermis with minimally-invasive micro-needles. The length of the needle ranges from 0.5 mm to 3.5 mm, which allows practitioners to apply a wide range of treatments. Furthermore, the adjustable intensity of RF energy enables treatment to different areas of the body.

Past experiences have revealed that this technology is very effective for such diverse applications as wrinkles, skin laxity, pore tightening, scars, and stretch mark treatments. Histological evidence shows the production of new collagen through the wound-healing process just 2 weeks after the initial treatment.

ED1000 by Medispec for Erectile Dysfunction

Screenshot 2016-04-21 12.35.00Can Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Improve Erectile Function? A 6-Month Follow-up Pilot Study in Patients with Organic Erectile Dysfunction.

Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT) is currently under investigation regarding its ability to promote neovascularization in different organs. This approach was tolerable and effective, suggesting a physiologic impact on cavernosal hemodynamics. Its main advantages are the potential to improve erectile function and to contribute to penile rehabilitation without pharmacotherapy.

IRIS: the versatile vascular laser

clinical-paper-3-150x150Dr Adrian Lim MBBS, FACP, FACD Dermatologist and Vein Specialist Royal North Shore Hospital uRepublic Cosmetic Dermatology and Veins talks about the IRIS.

The application of the IRIS laser for common vascular conditions has been outlined in clinical paper 1. In paper 2, we explore other forms of vascular conditions that can benefit from IRIS laser therapy. We will review IRIS treatment of roscea telangiectases (Case 1) and less common forms of vascular entities such as radiation telangiectases (Case 2) and keratosis pilaris rubra (Case 3).
