BACKGROUND: An unfortunate consequence of severe acne is scarring, which can have serious psychosocial consequences. Available methods for treating acne scars have varying degrees of effectiveness. OBJECTIVE: This nonrandomized, retrospective pilot study assessed the safety and effectiveness of combining microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V; Ultherapy® ) and a calcium hydroxylapatite dermal filler (CaHA; Radiesse® ) for treating atrophic acne scars...

BACKGROUND: Skin laxity and wrinkling on the neck and décolletage reveal age as reliably as the face. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the combined use of microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V; Ultherapy® ) and diluted calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA; Radiesse® ) for treating the neck and décolletage. METHODS: Subjects with moderate-to-severe lines on the neck and/or décolletage were retrospectively enrolled. MFU-V was applied using 7 and 10 MHz transducers followed by subdermal injection of CaHA diluted 1:1 with lidocaine solution...

Non-surgical aesthetic devices intended for treatment of lax and loose skin have gained popularity due to their ability to non-invasively improve patient's aesthetic condition and its low side effect profile. This study is intended to review available peer reviewed literature about Ultherapy, ThermaCool, and Exilis Ultra 360 non-invasive skin tightening devices to compare their treatment efficacy and patient subjective satisfaction.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Microfocused ultrasound (MFUS) technology has been utilized since 2009 for improvement in mild to moderate skin and soft tissue laxity of the face and neck. Few complications have been previously reported, the majority of which include mild and transient erythema, edema, ecchymosis, and nerve paralysis. Rare yet serious potential complications of MFUS for noninvasive skin tightening of the face and neck are, however, possible. METHODS & MATERIALS: Retrospective multicenter case series of five patients from the authors' practice who developed serious adverse events directly related to MFUS with a commercially available device (Ultherapy; Merz North America, Inc...

The Merz Institute of Advanced Aesthetics Expert Summit was held in Prague, Czech Republic, from 19-20 November 2016. The meeting had a distinct advisory board character and invited aesthetic practitioners from all over the world to hear an international faculty present a range of keynote lectures and conduct live injection sessions with an emphasis on recent developments in combination aesthetic interventions for face and body rejuvenation and beautification. Aging is associated with changes in bones, muscles, ligaments, adipose tissue, and skin and, moreover, involves interactions among these tissue types...

Age-associated skin laxity contributes to worsening of cellulite appearance. This study evaluated the effects of microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V; Ultherapy) in combination with diluted calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA; Radiesse) on cellulite appearance and on neocollagenesis. METHODS: Twenty women (18-55 years old) with skin laxity and moderate-to-severe cellulite on the buttocks and thighs were retrospectively enrolled. MFU-V was applied using 4 and 7 MHz transducers (25 lines/transducer/site) and immediately followed by subdermal CaHA injection (1 ml/buttock or thigh)...

BACKGROUND: Aging of the face, neck, and décolletage is a multifactorial process involving epidermal photodamage and loss of soft tissue and bony volume. Multilevel rejuvenation of these areas can be obtained by enhancing volume restoration, neocollagenesis, and tissue contraction with combined efficacy of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and microfocused ultrasound (MFU, Ultherapy) treatments. METHODS: The authors reviewed the use of PLLA and MFUs as collaborative modalities to improve the appearance of the face, neck, and décolletage...

Microfocused ultrasound (MFU) has been recently developed to meet the ever-growing public demand for achieving significant, noninvasive skin lifting and tightening. MFU can be focused on subcutaneous tissue where the temperature briefly reaches greater than 60°C, producing small (<1 mm(3)) thermal coagulation points to a depth of up to 5 mm within the mid-to-deep reticular layer of the dermis and subdermis. The intervening papillary dermal and epidermal layers of skin remain unaffected. The application of heat at these discrete thermal coagulation points causes collagen fibers in the facial planes such as the superficial musculoaponeurotic system and platysma, as well as the deep reticular dermis, to become denatured, contracting and stimulating de novo collagen...

INTRODUCTION: Facial aging is a gradual process that involves a complex interaction of multiple factors including cutaneous photodamage and laxity, subcutaneous tissue volume loss, and bony resorption. These features have all been show to significantly improve with intense pulsed light (IPL), microfocused ultrasound (MFUS, Ultherapy), and poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). METHODS: To review the use of IPL, MFUS, and PLLA in combination with the treatment of facial aging...
