Ultrashape: Transdermal lipolysis by means of ultrasound

Up to now the only way to improve body contour was by eliminating fat deposits made of adipose tissue by means of surgical liposuction. A new ultrasound-based system has been recently developed (Ultrashape: Contour I®) that works on the same principle: the destruction of adipocytes, but in a non-invasive fashion.See all »

IML directors, authors of "Body Contouring with Focused Ultrasounds"

Demand for non-surgical body weight control treatments has increased in the last few years. Despite offering less corrective results than traditional liposuction, crural and brachial lifts have gradually gained ground in the reduction of localised fat and improvement of the skin's appearance and texture.

Diet, exercise and genetics are all important influencing factors in the appearance of indentations in the skin, which are hard to conceal at any age. Demand for non-surgical, non-ablative cellulite treatments have lead many manufacturers to invest in a new generation of sophisticated devices and therapies to repair the skin and improve body shape. A number of these options have a proven softening effect (after multiple treatment sessions).

Fractional Resurfacing

FX ACTIVE is the last generation CO2 ultra pulse fractional laser for highly efficient facial resurfacing treatments.

Its ultra pulse and fractional system distinguishes it from other devices on the market, making it safer and more efficient. Its exclusive Cool-Scan system for laser energy delivery on the skin makes for a less aggressive treatment and a minimum amount of downtime. Due to the above features, we can benefit from the advantages of CO2 without the risks involved in older systems with better efficiency and recovery speed (limited erythema, no secretions and an excellent general well-being). The device is extremely versatile, allowing for personalised treatments, adapting them to each patient’s skin singularity.

Treatment is carried out in one 10 to 30 minute session, according to the surface to be treated, and requires no more than a topical anaesthetic cream. After treatment, the area is spread with Vaseline and the patient can return home. They can return to normal day to day activities 5 to 7 days later. Check ups should be held 5, 15 and 30 days after treatment. The patient should use sunscreen.

The only possible complication is post-treatment hyperpigmentation of the skin, associated with exposure to the sun. This would slow down the recovery process as it requires treatment with whitening peelings (although the patient can continue with normal activity wearing light makeup).

Ponencia: Particularidades de la depilación masculina. Dra Royo de La Torre

Congreso Nacional de Medicina Estética

Instituto Médico Láser
Dra. Josefina Royo de la Torre

Depilación en hombres: zonas complicadas y depilación en cara
SEME 2008

La depilación masculina es diferente en función de que tratemos áreas andrógeno- dependientes y no dependientes. Los andrógenos tienen distintos efectos sobre las regiones corporales: altos sobre la región parietal, el tórax-abdomen, las axilas y la cara. Efectos medios sobre las extremidades. Suave en la región temporal y occipital y nulos en las pestañas.

Las hormonas masculinas y especialmente la 5 alfa DHT liga receptores de celulas papilares que liberan citoquinas activadoras o inhibidoras de la proliferación de las células matriciales según la localización anatómica y la edad del paciente. Del balance del tipo de citoquina liberada existirá un efecto estimulante del pelo o inhibidor en cada etapa cronológica del varón.

La depilación láser en el varón es muy satisfactoria pero requiere:

  1. Una adecuada información para el paciente.
  2. Un adecuado planteamiento terapéutico.
  3. La adecuada elección de la herramienta eficaz.

Los pacientes no suelen exigir una limpieza de pelo del 100%.

Las inevitables sesiones de repaso tardías acaban realizándose cada 6 meses o un año, son sesiones cómodas, por poca densidad de pelo y colocadas cronológicamente con vistas a la exposición corporal del verano, pueden aportar confort estético al paciente cuando más lo precisa.

En las zonas delicadas por difícil acceso o por requerimiento estético especial hemos de poner especial cuidado en la forma de la aplicación del tratamiento.

IML scientific publication in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy

The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy published "Laser-assisted lipolysis for knee remodelling: A prospective study in 30 patients", a scientific study by IML.

Integral remodelling of knees has traditionally been an area of difficult access with conventional liposuction, its treatment often being contraindicated due to the poor results obtained to date.

However, the remodelling of the integral fatty accumulations of the knee, both in its anterior side as well as the internal and external, is obtained thanks to a refined technique assisted by laser (laser lipolysis), through the handling of the ductile fibre that conveys the emission energy at 924 and 975 Nm, providing highly satisfactory results, with very high rates of correction.

This scientific work was been led by Dr. Javier Moreno Moraga, medical director at Instituto Medico Laser, in which other IML practitioners also collaborated: Dr. Royo de la Torre, Dr. Ignacio Sanz and Dr. Ellen Bravo, as well as the following clinical and research centres:

  • Instituto Medico Vilafortuny: Dr. Mario Trelles.

Doctor Perez Sevilla, at the SECOM Facial Aesthetics Course

Dr. Gema Perez Sevilla, Maxillofacial Surgeon and Head of the Facial Aesthetic Medicine Unit at IML, participated as SECOM Coordinator at the Facial Aesthetics course held in Madrid on 31st October 2012.

Poor dental occlusion, which is suffered by one in five people, involves a greater risk of facial asymmetry, according to the conclusions of the course on Facial Aesthetics organised by the Spanish Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (SECOM). For its coordinator, Doctor Gema Perez Sevilla of the Instituto Medico Laser, improvement in facial harmony is achieved through oral and maxillofacial surgery, for malocclusion as well as other facial deformities, "is incomparable to any other intervention, since both soft tissue and bones are worked on".

Work on the whole of the anatomical structures of the face performed by the oral and maxillofacial surgeon "allows for optimum changes in facial aesthetics", as emphasised by Doctor Perez Sevilla. In her opinion, "its important to be familiar with the techniques, from the less invasive to those that require surgery, to apply the most suitable one in each case, correcting defects both on the surface as well as in the facial volumes". Furthermore, "the thorough knowledge of facial anatomy of the maxillofacial surgeon achieves greater precision on the treated tissues when applying the anesthesia, which increases the effectiveness and reduces the risk of adverse effects".

Picosure picosecond laser at IML

IML has included PicoSure®, the new picosecond laser for tattoo removal to its technical equipment.

Picosure® delivers pulses in trillionths of a second, providing an intense photomechanical impact that shatters the targeted ink into tiny, dust-like particles.

These particles are then easily eliminated by the body and satisfactory results are reached in 2 or 3 fewer sessions than with conventional technology.

Its high degree of effectiveness makes it possible to work at less fluence, making tattoo removal treatment with PicoSure® much gentler on the skin.

Significant clearance of tattoos is reached in fewer sessions. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks that are conventionally more resistant can be removed. PicoSure® can also remove previously-treated, hard to eliminate, recalcitrant tattoos with residual pigments that have been treated in a number of sessions without success.

IML join the "PicoSure goes pink" initiative

IML joins "PicoSure goes pink", an initiative promoted by Cynosure to help breast cancer patients treated with radiation therapy to erase memories of the past.

During radiation treatment, a small blue or black tattoo is applied on the skin to accurately aim the radiation on the affected area. These tattoos are permanent in most cases. "Removing these post-treatment tattoos can be the final step to full recovery for many patients", according to Dr. Josefina Royo de la Torre, IML Director.

Laser is the most effective and gentle on the skin treatment for tattoo removal. IML has the whole range of laser equipment at their disposal for the removal of these pigmentations: Q-switched Alexandrite Laser and PicoSure® picosecond laser. Therefore, IML will provide a complimentary post-radiotherapy tattoo removal treatment to three breast cancer patients. In addition, we're offering radiotherapy patients with a 10% discount on post-radiotherapy tattoo removal.

IML at a Genocosmetics symposium

Dr. Almudena Royo, Aesthetic Medicine specialist at IML, attended the Genocosmetics course organized by Sesderma on 10 November 2014.

Genocosmetics studies the origin of ageing and the changes produced in the skin caused by age, such as flaccidity or pigmentation changes. The concept of skin ageing conditioned by genetics is constantly being confirmed by research. It seems that there are over 1500 genes involved in the process of skin ageing that influence in different aspects, such as antioxidant potential, the ability to protect against sun damage, elasticity, degree of hydration or texture.

Genes produce the expression or suppression of structural proteins or a major enzymatic action on the skin quality and structure.

Products used in Genocosmetics are genic acting creams aimed at influencing the genetic alterations that are induced in the cell nucleus due to the action of external or internal factors.

IML, first medical centre to provide PicoSure® 532 nm delivery

IML is the first Spanish medical centre to include PicoSure 532 nm delivery in its laser technology platform.

Picosecond technology allows for tattoo removal with 2 or 3 times less sessions, with higher efficacy per session. It is also able to remove all types of ink colours, by incorporating the 532 nm delivery to the existing 755 nm, its level of efficiency has been optimised for yellow, red, orange and purple.

The 4 main benefits of the PicoSure picosecond laser are:

  1. Improved performance in removing pigment per session, which means that tattoos are eliminated in 2 to 3 times less than with nanosecond laser technology.
  2. Greater respect for the skin, the clinical response is more intense and requires delivery of less amounts of power, which is less aggressive on the skin.
  3. Effective on every colour. The incorporation of 532 nm delivery to the existing 755 nm is a tremendous advance in the degree of efficacy with yellow, red and orange inks.
  4. Ability to remove residual pigments from so-called "recalcitrant" tattoos, that are resistant to Q-Switched laser technology.

The link below shows a before and after image of 4 treatment sessions with picosecond laser for tattoo removal. The colours yellow and red are removed in 2 sessions 75% of the time. The images are courtesy of Cynosure and are part of a clinical study conducted by Hamad Alabdulrazzaq, MBBCh, Yoon-Soo Bae, MD, Bradley Bloom, MD, Jeremy A.

10 questions on laser epilation

How does a laser work in hair removal? It works on the principle of selective photothermolysis, eliminating the hair follicle and causing no damage to neighbouring structures. The laser emits light pulses that are selectively absorbed by the target chromophore or melanin present in each hair. Other chromophores in the skin are water and haemoglobin.

Lip aesthetics

A lack of volume, poor line definition or peribuccal wrinkles are the main aesthetic problems concerned with the lips. It is an area of the face that changes over the years due to tissue atrophy and dehydration. Factors such as bone growth and the development of dental structures, highly corrective orthodontia or repeated labial herpes infections can also alter their physiognomy. The applications of accurate and discreet fillers as well as the use of chemical or physical peelings are the best tools for correcting these conditions.See all »

Push Up Threads

Palacio De Nerva, new IML headquarters

Exactly a century had to pass before the Palacio de Nerva reopened its doors under the Instituto Médico Láser banner and renovation. It was rescued from oblivion to be converted into a modern medical-aesthetic treatment clinic. This building is an outstanding example of late 19th and early 20th century Madrid architecture. The Widowed Marchioness de la Oliva y Nerva commissioned the architect Valentin Roca y Carbonell (1863 – 1937) to build it. This small palace just managed to survive the renovation spree that ruined similar buildings in the Paseo de la Castellana area. Its construction was finalized in 1906 and at the time the address was number 17 of Paseo del Obelisco, one of the main arteries leading to the outskirts and which marked the Madrid city limits at the time.See all »

Organic silicon infiltrations against body flaccidity

Silicon is one of the most important active ingredients in the reaffirming creams currently on the market. The novelty lies in the fact that the Spanish Drug Agency (Agencia Española del Medicamento) has just approved Organic Silicon injections for medical-aesthetic use after having been applied in Europe for years. It had been prohibited for a long time; therefore it was not given its just importance as an excellent treatment to combating body tissue flaccidity.See all »

Strategic Touch Ups

Prominent chin, rabbit wrinkles, drooping nose... These and other small defects that quite often in the past needed surgery to correct can now be resolved with a new “touch up” technique using corrective materials (Vistabell) and different types of fillers (Aquamid, Sculptra, Hyaluronic). Absolute precision is required for this intervention as well as a very sharp handling of the implants and a profound anatomical knowledge of the face’s structure. Dr. Gemma Perez Sevilla, maxillofacial surgeon and aesthetic physician at the Instituto Medico Laser uses this method to soften the features and improve the expression without causing a radical change in the middle and lower thirds of the face.See all »

IML, avant-garde Body-Contouring

On January 26, IML opened its doors to the Press for the national presentation of the most avant-garde technology in Body-Contouring: Endymed and Laser Sculpture.

IML incorporates third generation radio frequency to its technical equipment: Endymed RF Deep™, the most advanced technology for the treatment of facial and body flaccidity. This new device focuses and concentrates the current towards the deepest layers of skin, increasing the treatment’s efficiency and painlessly protecting the epidermis.

The directors at IML also presented the technique of laser sculpture or laser lipolysis, a new laser application for the elimination of adipose tissue, which has outstanding advantages over conventional liposuction. Through a laser light optical fibre introduced under the skin, the lysis or fat destruction is achieved. It liquefies and the skin shrinks in those areas with greatest risk of laxity after emptying the fat content. Both bruising and recovery period is reduced and the patient can go back to their normal routine just 24 hours after the procedure.

Post-radiotherapy tattoo removal at IML

During radiation therapy, small tattoos are applied on the patient's chest that serve as anatomical references to accurately aim the radiation on the affected area throughout the course of treatment. This pigmentation tends to fade after radiotherapy. However, on occasion they last for a whole lifetime, which can stigmatize patients.

According to Dr. Josefina Royo de la Torre, IML Director, "For a great deal of breast cancer patients who have undergone radiotherapy, removing these black or blue pigmentations can be the final step to full recovery".

IML joins "PicoSure goes Pink", an initiative promoted by Cynosure to raise social awareness that breast cancer is curable and does not have to leave marks.

Therefore, IML wants to provide a complimentary post-radiotherapy tattoo removal treatment to three patients who have overcome breast cancer.

The first three patients attending a free informative consultation with our dermatologists will receive a post-radiotherapy tattoo removal treatment, free of charge.

If you're not in the top three attending a consultation with our dermatologists or have been treated with radiotherapy for other types of cancer, IML offers an exclusive 10% discount on post-radiotherapy tattoo removal treatment.

If you have overcome breast cancer or know a woman who has, request a free informative consultation via the web or call us.

Dr. Almudena Royo attended a course on Genocosmetics

Dr. Almudena Royo attended a course on Genocosmetics held on 10 November 2014 and organized by Sesderma.

Genocosmetics studies the origin of ageing and the changes produced in the skin caused by age, such as flaccidity or pigmentation changes.

The concept of skin ageing conditioned by genetics is constantly being confirmed by research. It seems that there are over 1,500 genes involved in the process of skin ageing that influence in different aspects, such as antioxidant potential, the ability to protect against sun damage, elasticity, degree of hydration or texture.

Genes produce the expression or suppression of structural proteins or a major enzymatic action on the skin quality and structure.

Products used in Genocosmetics are genic acting creams aimed at influencing the genetic alterations that are induced in the cell nucleus due to the action of external or internal factors.
