5th Multispecialty Cosmetic Surgery Meeting in Vegas: Primaeva, Miratone info

Dr. Pozner and I both lectured at the 5th Multispecialty Cosmetic Surgery meeting in Las Vegas this past weekend. This unique meeting is attended by some of the best plastic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists in the country.

One of the highlighted techniques was the Primaeva non-surgical RF (radiofrequency) skin tightening approach.

Our NJ office was one of the study sites for this technique over the last year. The procedure, performed with topical anesthesia, applies deep skin tightening heat through many tiny skin embedded needles. Sensors embedded in the system provide real-time feedback of skin temperature and tissue resistance within the treatment zone, overcoming the variability of patient response due to differences in tissue characteristics.

The goal is to produce more non-invasive skin tightening than is seen with the Thermage approach, with the realization that greater skin tightening will always occur with more invasive surgery.

The data presented at the Multispecialty meeting was also presented by me at the recent American Society for Lasers in Surgery and Medicine meeting. The machine, known as Miratone, represents the latest approach to non-surgical skin tightening.
