For achieving satisfying results in scar treatments, skin has to be treated with sessions utilizing specially designed esthetic devices. Microneedling has begun to use as a therapeutical method over the years and it is observed to be effective for scar treatment, too. The extraordinary combination of our DermaPen radiofrequency and microneedling machine enables us to cure almost all scars from purple-reddish color to whitish or brownish color scars, from hypertrophic (higher than skin level, such as surgical scars) to atrophy. AP Clinique uses pHformula and Matrigen products for scars and acne scars treatments. These products are applied after microneedling treatment, thus used products can penetrate into lower layers of skin.
Lipo-Laser is a laser-based non-invasive cosmetic treatment that supports body sculpting by helping to remove excess fat and cellulite. Laser energy used in treatment penetrates into skin safely and painlessly and targets specific fat cells. When laser contacts with targeted cells, it stimulates the cell itself into releasing water, fatty acids and glycerol. These compounds cause fat cells to shrink significantly, resulting fat loss in the targeted region. Fat residues liquefied during Lipo-Laser first absorbed by lymphatic system, then processed by liver and the materials are excreted from the body naturally.
Lipo-Laser is one of the most preferred methods for slimming and reducing cellulitis, because Lipo-Laser provides rapid and painless solution. Besides slimming and reducing cellulitis, it increases metabolic rate and bloodstream. Lipo-Laser is an alternative for treatments that requires surgical operation such as liposuction, since it is absolutely painless and it has no side effects and recovery period.
Ultrasonic Cavitation is a painless, non-invasive body contouring treatment, which works with low-frequency sound-waves. Small devices placed outside the body transmit low-frequency sound-waves under the skin. These sound-waves liquefy fat cells by heating them. The residues of these liquefied fat cells are excreted from the body naturally.
Ultrasonic Cavitation does not remove fat cells completely; it enables the excretion of materials within these cells from the body. In case patients do not follow a healthy diet after treatment, these fat cells may again enlarge and return back to its previous condition. To get efficient results from Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment, it is recommended to drink plenty of water and pay attention to dietary habits.
Since Ultrasonic Cavitation is a noninvasive and painless treatment, it is an alternative treatment for fat reduction and body contouring treatments, which require surgical operation, such as liposuction. There is no recovery period after treatment and patients may return to their daily routines.
Highly concentrated ultrasound waves used in HIFU treatment penetrate deep into the skin and help to stimulate collagen and elastin production. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) activates and accelerates the body's own healing process in the face, neck and décolletage areas and thereby helps sagging skin to tighten itself and become more firm. HIFU treatment requires no creams, no artificial filler products or toxins. It relies solely on the body’s natural regenerative capacity.
HIFU treatment does not require anesthesia and it is a non-invasive treatment. Therefore, patients may return to their daily activities immediately after the treatment. Contrary to other face-lift and face firming treatments, loss of sensation and control do not occur. HIFU treatment can be applied for reducing wrinkles, facelift, shaping of face contour and brow lifting.
Frequently Asked Questions
Low-level laser beams applied during Lipo-Laser treatment, liquefy fat cells and stored toxins. Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system. Shrinking of fat cells enables slimming. During Lipo-Laser, fat cells are not removed, they just shrink. Unless you do not follow a healthy diet, fat cells may return to their old dimensions.
The fat, which gets broken during Lipo-Laser treatment, is absorbed by the lymphatic system and then processed by the liver and then gets converted as an energy source. Fats are excreted from the body naturally by urinary system.
Liposuction is an invasive treatment and local or general anesthesia is applied during operation. During operation, fat cells are extracted with a vacuum inserted into body. Lipo-Laser is a non-invasive treatment and does not require anesthesia. LED laser frequencies applied outside the body, liquefy materials inside the fat cells and these are excreted from the body naturally. During Lipo-Laser, fat cells are not removed completely, only their sizes are reduced.
Lipo-Laser treatment is a non-invasive operation. Therefore, there is no recovery period. You can go back to your daily routine after Lipo-Laser treatment. However, to get efficient results from the treatment, it is recommended to drink plenty of water and avoid beverages containing alcohol, caffeine, etc. that can affect your lymphatic system.
Ultrasonic Cavitation transmits low-frequency sound-waves under the skin by small devices placed outside the body. These sound-waves heat fat layers located under the skin and liquefy materials inside the cells. Liquefied cell’s main materials within fat cell move outside the cell membrane and then to natural lymphatic system and finally reach to urinary system and excreted from the body. Only cell wall remains from fat cells.
During Ultrasonic Cavitation, materials inside the fat cells liquefy and move outside the cell wall. These materials called as fatty acids are excreted from the body by lymphatic system and urinary system. Only cell wall remains from fat cells.
Liposuction is a painful and invasive treatment that requires local or general anesthesia. Vacuums inserted in fat layers remove fat cells with a suction technique. By this way, no fat cell residues left behind. As for Ultrasonic Cavitation, it is a non-invasive and painless operation that does not require anesthesia. Ultrasonic Cavitation liquefies fat cells and these fatty acids are excreted from the body by urinary system. While Liposuction removes all fat cells, in Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment the cell wall is left behind. Unless healthy eating habits are not followed, these fat cell walls that are left behind may return to their previous condition. Therefore, it is essential to pay attention to feeding habits and drink plenty of water.
Since Ultrasonic Cavitation is a non-invasive operation, there is no recovery period. Patients may return to their daily routine after operation. However, to get more efficient results from the treatment, patients should drink plenty of water and follow a healthy and balanced diet.
All parts of the body where fat deposition exists can be treated with Ultrasonic Cavitation. Stomach, legs, thighs, chin and upper arms are among the body parts that can be treated with ultrasonic cavitation.
Duration of a single session may vary from 30 minutes to 2 and half hours. Session durations vary based on the area to be treated. Generally at the end of first session, effects of treatment are seen. Second session can be performed only after at least 8-12 months.
After HIFU treatment, patients may return to their daily life immediately. However, sometimes, although rare, redness and tenderness may be seen on treatment area. In very rare cases, bruising and numbness may be seen on treatment area.
