VoluDerm

pollogen_legendsystem2VoluDerm is an innovative treatment that offers effective skin rejuvenation in a minimally-invasive procedure. Radiofrequency technology combines with fine micro-pins to provide instant improvement in the appearance of the skin, as well as long-lasting cosmetic results. Patients enjoy dramatic results with little discomfort and no downtime afterward.

VoluDerm uses tiny pins and radiofrequency energy to penetrate the outer layers of the skin. Treatments then stimulate the body to produce more hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin, which lead to a smoother, more youthful complexion. By stimulating the body’s own production of these substances, we can achieve significant skin rejuvenation that has long-lasting results.

Collagen is a protein found in the fibrous tissue of the skin. This substance supports the underlying skin structure, helping skin to maintain its suppleness and elasticity. Elastin is another protein found in connective tissue that gives skin its ability to resume its original form after stretching or moving.

Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate that binds to water, allowing skin to retain moisture for a softer, younger appearance. It has been called by some as “nature’s moisturizer.” All of these substances are naturally produced by the body, but they are produced in much lower amounts as the body ages. Replacing these substances helps restore the skin’s natural youth and vitality, which in turn significantly improves its appearance.

Benefits of VoluDerm:

  • Fewer fine lines and facial wrinkles
  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Skin volumizing for a more youthful appearance
  • Enhanced facial contouring and firmer, tighter skin
  • Diminished visible scarring from acne and chicken pox

In just one VoluDerm session, you can see significant improvement that will last much longer than other types of skin rejuvenation treatment. Treatment can be performed on any area of the face and is even appropriate for sensitive areas of skin like the back of the hands and décolleté. The procedure is relatively quick and painless, and patients may return to normal activities as soon as the procedure is over.

How does VoluDerm Work?

VoluDerm is performed in our office and takes under one hour to complete. Patients are comfortable throughout the procedure and able to return to regular activities immediately afterward. A handheld device delivers both the radiofrequency energy and the micro-pins, which create micro-wounds to stimulate the body’s own healing process. The wounds are not visible, although the skin may appear visibly tighter and smoother even immediately after treatment.

VoluDerm is a quick, comfortable method of skin rejuvenation that has less risk than other types of skin rejuvenation treatments. The micro-pins penetrate the surface of the skin painlessly, resulting in no bleeding or bruising after the procedure. Patients will notice some results right away, but will see continued improvement in the weeks and months following the procedure as the skin receives the benefits of additional collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin production.
