Study by New York's premier dermatologist, Dr. David J. Goldberg, validates
first sonic wave drug delivery modality
GOLDEN, Colo., April 4, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Aesthetic Technologies announced during the 28th Annual American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) Conference, in Kissimmee, Fla., the introduction of its Parisian Peel(R) Suffusion System. The breakthrough system is designed to help physicians and skin care professionals achieve better topical product penetration than other systems currently on the market. Suffusion treats people with all skin types, offers zero downtime and exhibits proven results.
Suffusion's unique combination of ingredients in its topical formula, combined with its proven phonophoresis technique -- a method of electrically assisted percutaneous delivery of macromolecules -- has shown very promising results in a just completed scientific study. Nationally recognized dermatologist David J. Goldberg, M.D., of Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of N.Y. & N.J., will present a poster session at the ASLMS Conference (April 2-6) reading the study: "Evaluation of Histologic and Electron Microscopic Changes after Novel Combined Microdermabrasion and Ultrasound Induced Phonophoresis Treatment of Human Skin."
"We have achieved extremely positive results with this technique," said Alison Shaya, president of Aesthetic Technologies, explaining the study results.
The clinical study showed both an increase in collagen formation and high patient satisfaction. All participants in the study reported a 25-percent or greater improvement in hue/brightness of skin, and more than 85 percent of the participants reported a 25-percent or greater improvement in skin tone and a 25-percent or greater improvement in skin dryness.
"Adding the Suffusion System to the service mix will open up exciting new opportunities for medically oriented skin care practices," Shaya said, "both in terms of increased revenue and the ability to attract new patients."
The non-invasive, pain-free Suffusion System is the first of its kind in the industry and represents a completely new method for achieving clinically validated dermal penetration down to the cellular level. The standard procedure consists of a Parisian Peel immediately followed by dermal infusion, a five-minute process to drive the ReVisage(TM) solution deep down into the skin for a true and lasting effect.
The system combines the Parisian Peel Elite(TM) Ultrasound device, uniquely designed hand pieces and specially formulated ReVisage topical solution. When administered on the skin by a trained professional, the hydrating process promotes cellular renovation, enhances fibroblastic activity and increases collagen synthesis.
Infusion devices that don't use phonophoresis are incapable of dermal penetration, Shaya said, while Suffusion accomplishes what dermal infusion was meant to do: achieve topical penetration at the cellular level to stimulate collagen growth.
Shaya added that devices claiming to do both microdermabrasion and
infusion simultaneously end up doing neither very well. With this type of
system, the hydrating product only remains on the skin for a few seconds
before it is removed. Parisian Peel research has found that the skin needs
time to adequately absorb topical moisturizers.
The Parisian Peel Suffusion System consists of:
-- Elite Ultrasound -- An FDA-cleared, dual-frequency phonophoresis
device that facilitates the penetration of the proprietary topical
solution. The Elite Ultrasound device can also be used for many other
-- Interchangeable Treatment Applicators -- Varying diameters of
applicators for a variety of face and body conditions.
-- ReVisage -- A topical solution specially formulated to achieve maximum
results. Patients should also apply ReVisage after treatment to
achieve optimal results.
