Tickle Lipo Article and Special Offer

Patients and Physicians Enjoy the Ease of Tickle Lipo

One of the newest devices for body contouring isn’t a laser or ultrasound or radio frequency device. Rather it’s Tickle Lipo and many patients and physicians are very impressed by this device that uses movement rather than heat to make fat easier to remove.

“I’m just so excited about TickleLipo,” says Dr. Tess Mauricio who performs Tickle Lipo in San Diego. “I’m really pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to perform and how happy the patients are. Areas that were very difficult to treat with liposculpture such as the arms and the thighs are made so much better with the Tickle Lipo.” Dr. Mauricio describes that the device removes fat cells in a three dimensional way. With traditional liposuction, the cannula would move in a linear manner, making it difficult to remove a three dimensional amount of volume. That is much easier with the TickleLipo. “It’s a lot smoother and it’s a lot easier to shape so I’m a lot more confident when I talk to my patients. I can assure them that we’re going to get really smooth results. It’s the key to creating a great lipo result,” says Dr. Mauricio.

A Dermatological Look at Skin of Color (Including Asian Skin)

There is an impressive emerging interest in my field regarding the rejuvenation and treatment of skin of color, including Asian skin. As a Filipina Cosmetic Dermatologist, I have had the privilege of traveling around the world educating physicians on why skin of color (like my brown, mocha colored skin and that of my fair skinned Korean husband) is different than white Caucasian skin. And, more importantly, how those differences in skin color can impact the efficacy and safety of treatments.

The difference seems so obvious when we look at each other’s different skin color. It all boils down to the difference in the amount of melanin (pigment) in our epidermis (the very top layer of the skin). This melanin offers dark skin an advantage with less aging, less wrinkling than the more fair skin counterparts, because melanin protects us from sun damage. However, the downside is that melanin can make laser and skin rejuvenation treatments more challenging because it can absorb too much heat and energy from laser treatments causing complications like burns or discoloration on the skin.

The great news is that one of the biggest advances in technology has been our ability to now treat Asian skin and even those with darker skin. With the proper technology in the hands of experienced practitioners, we can now enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, wrinkle reduction and skin tightening!

The beauty and aesthetics industry is taking a much closer look at skin of color as a new and untapped market for new products and innovation in technology. As a result, this year has surfaced many opportunities to learn more about Asian skin and how it will respond to emerging technologies, especially in skin whitening and skin rejuvenation.

We have a number of important clinical studies, like the study on a breakthrough topical skin whitening cream, which is free of charge to everyone who qualifies. I urge those who may be interested in the studies to contact us.
