Adip’sculpt Fat Transfer

Posted: 22 December 2017

Adip’sculpt has revolutionised fat transfer treatments for facial fillers, breast augmentation, breast reconstruction (such as post-breast cancer) and body contouring.  Adipsculpt has increased the success rate of successful fat transfer from the previous range of 30-50% to 70-90% using the Adip’sculpt equipment and process, providing reliable and predictable fat transfer outcomes for both practitioners and patients.

An Adip’sculpt generally involves harvesting fat from the stomach, buttock or thighs and carefully processing it to retain intact fat lobules.  The fat lobules, which contain stem cells in addition to fat cells, are then reinfected into the desired area of the body where they are integrated in the body as natural, living tissue.

How Was Adipsculpt Fat Transfer Invented?

The development of Adip’sculpt began when French scientists, Dr Franck Festy and Dr Regis Roche, were conducting research on Diabetes and approached a plastic surgeon to obtain discarded fat cells from liposuction to use in their studies.  During their conversations the topic of fat transfer was discussed, including the issue of low fat retention rates of only 30-50%.  The plastic surgeon asked Dr Festy and Dr Roche for their ideas on how to improve the success of fat transfer.

Over the course of more than 10 years Dr Festy and Dr Roche researched every aspect of the fat-transfer process from harvesting, processing through to re-injection.  The end result was the development of Adip’sculpt equipment and procedures, which now deliver improved rates of successful fat retention in the range of 70-90%.

The Adip’sculpt procedure is designed to extract and preserve the right size of fat cells best suited for the new area to achieve long-term, natural-looking results.

Fat Transfer As A Natural Alternative To Injectable Facial Fillers

Facial fillers commonly use a compound called Hyaluronic Acid as an injectable substance to add volume to face and other areas.  The filler will gradually be lost over time and the procedure will need to be repeated regularly to maintained the desired volume.

Adipsculpt is used in the same way as fillers with the difference that it is your own tissue that integrates as part of your natural structure.  Because of this the result is considered relatively permanent.

Fat Transfer For Breast Augmentation & Reconstruction

Adipsculpt can be used in a number of ways for Breast Augmentation and Breast Reconstruction.  This includes

  • For breast enlargement of 1-2 cup sizes as an alternative to Breast Implants
  • In conjunction with breast implants for cleavage enhancement and creating a more natural look
  • For full breast reconstructions eg. after Breast Cancer

Natural Looking Results With DOT Therapy Laser

You don’t gain wrinkles in your skin – you lose collagen. DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) Therapy Fractional laser treatments work with your natural facial structure by targeting the layers in the skin that produce collagen.

While injectable wrinkle reduction treatments using toxins like Botox can alter a person’s expression, DOT Therapy treatments help to stimulate new collagen under the skin that restores the structure of the skin and delivers a more natural looking result.

Precisely Controlled Laser Energy To Stimulate New Collagen

ablative-fractional-laser-skin-effectDOT therapy uses hundreds of tiny pillars of laser energy to penetrate the skin and stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The laser ablates a small percentage of the skin while leaving healthy tissue in between so the skin can heal faster. The laser delivers enough heat to stimulate the production of new collagen while leaving the skin able to heal in a few days.

DOT Therapy allows treatment parameters such as treatment area shape, depth of ablation, overall heating and downtime to be tailored to the patient’s skin and lifestyle.

Rather than a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach the doctor can, for example, change the shape of the DOT pattern to suit the shape of the body part being treated and minimise areas of treatment overlap, or alter parameters related to the strength of treatment to match the desired results or downtime to the patient’s lifestyle.  This is particularly important when treating delicate areas such as the wrinkles around the mouth or eyes.

Smartbleach Teeth Whitening

Smartbleach® is the world’s most advanced teeth whitening system. It uses a unique and patented process that combines pure green light and a specially formulated red gel to create a photodynamic teeth whitening treatment that is highly effective yet gentle on the tooth enamel.

The techniques used in the Smartbleach® teeth whitening treatment are a result of extensive research over more than 14 years. It began with the general observation that people living in countries with a sunnier climate, tended to have whiter teeth.

How The Smartbleach® / Smartlight Teeth Whitening Treatment Works

Smartbleach® works by using a laser or Smartlight 3LT equipment to produce pure green light from the sunlight spectrum and matching this green light to a Smartbleach® patented red teeth whitening gel containing a special, non-acidic preparation of hydrogen peroxide. Red and green are complementary colours and the consequent Smartbleach® interaction creates a non-acidic teeth whitening process. The result is a whiter, brighter teeth.

Smartbleach® is also able to stabilise the smaller molecules, stopping them reforming into large ones. This means that the treatment lasts longer.

A typical Smartbleach® teeth whitening treatment lasts 45-50 minutes with the new 3LT teeth whitening system or around 60 to 90 minutes with the Smartbleach laser. Firstly, the teeth are cleaned and dried by the dentist. A protective coating is applied to the gums and then the special Smartbleach® red gel is applied to the teeth and the green light is applied to the teeth. An exciting aspect of Smartbleach® is that the results are visible immediately, so you can judge for yourself, after each application, when you have reached the desired result.

Deka Q-Switched Laser

Posted: 9 July 2013

Deka Duolite & QS4 Laser Tattoo Removal

Q-Switched Laser For High Quality Tattoo Removal and Pigmentation Treatments

The Duolite & QS4 QS system is manufactured by Europe’s largest medical laser company, Deka Lasers.  Deka has been manufacturing lasers for over 30 years and has developed some of the leading innovations in cosmetic medicine.

The Deka ‘Q-switched’ lasers  can target pigments in the skin with a high energy pulse delivered in an extremely short timeframe (max 6 ns).  This produce a “photo-acoustic” effect that breaks down the cells containing the tattoo pigment.  The laser emits extremely high energy, short pulses of light that shatter the tattoo ink into minute particles allowing them to be released from the cells and eliminated through lymphatic-draining.

Each laser wavelength (a single colour of light) target a particular structure (chromophore) in the skin.  If the correct laser wavelength is selected the laser will target the pigment and leave the surrounding tissues unaffected.  The Deka QS lasers have multiple laser wavelengths to provide greater versatility to target different colours in the skin.
