“What can I do for lackluster skin?” Skin care consultants, behind-the-counter beauty advisors, aestheticians, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons are asked this question all the time, and it’s not an easy one to answer largely because lackluster skin means different things to different people. It can be a complexion dulled by textural irregularity, sun damage, age spots, or even redness in the Rosacea-prone.
Regardless of the discoloration issue, InMode’s Lumecca intense pulsed light (IPL) device has it covered. Lumecca selectively pinpoints and corrects facial pigmentation, superficial vessels, skin texture, and sun damage using selective photothermolysis. Lumecca’s high peak power—about three times that of other IPL devices—is said to be the secret to its success. Other pluses include improved patient comfort and safety.

From nausea to risk of dependence, opioid-based postsurgical pain relief does confer its share of risks. Fortunately, there are technologies available today that can effectively manage pain following surgery without relying on narcotics.
The ON-Q Pain Relief System is a single-use, portable pump that delivers a continuous infusion of local, non-narcotic anesthetic to manage pain for up to ?5 days after surgery.
“Before surgery, the anesthesiologist performs a paravertebral block, and under ultrasound guidance places a paravertebral catheter. This is connected to an ON-Q pain pump with a 3-day reservoir and an adjustable flow rate that can be dialed up and down after surgery for patient comfort,” explains Kamakshi Zeidler, MD, a plastic surgeon in Los Gatos, San Jose, and the greater South Bay Area of California.
“Across the board, my patients state that the postsurgical pain is nowhere near what they had expected. Because the paravertebral block is in effect during the entire surgical procedure, less general anesthetic is required and there are added benefits of less postoperative nausea and vomiting.” Learn more about the On-Q Pain pump here: www.iflo.com
