The plastic surgery community is buzzing about a new FDA approved non-surgical skin technology that provides surgery-like results without cutting and can be performed in the office under local anesthesia with minimal to no downtime.
The InMode RF system utlilizes Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) providing surgery-like-results with an insertion port similar to that of an 18 gauge needle! Patients can now achieve dramatic aesthetic outcomes without the scalpel or scars using BodyTite & FaceTite procedures.
“The InMode RF system is the missing link as it provides up to 36.4% contraction of skin, with some results seen immediately, and further tightening occurring up to a year. This instrument creates a contained thermal field created by an electrical current, flowing directly from the tip of the cannula to an external electrode placed on the patient’s skin,” said Dr. Daniel Shapiro, a renowned plastic surgeon based in Scottsdale, who is also an Instructor in Plastic Surgery for the prestigious Mayo Clinic Rochester, Minnesota Plastic Surgery Residency. “This system is incredibly safe as it provides uniform heating of both the subdermal layer and the skin’s surface via temperature monitoring and power control. I can literally provide a MiniFacelift, ArmLift, and tightening of the abdominal wall skin without surgery. Patients have minimal to no pain and no problems healing. This is a fantastic non-invasive modality that is truly the missing link between surgery and non-invasive techniques,” he said.
The InMode RF system can be used successfully and predictably on the face and neck, arms, abdomen. It can also be used to address cellulite on the thighs. Dr. Shapiro was chosen as the only plastic surgeon in Arizona to institute this exciting new technology.
