The skin rejuvenation associated treatment—Fraxel laser, Microbotox, and low G prime hyaluronic acid: preliminary results
Minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedures reached an all-time high in the 2016. This reveals a growing interest in a smoother, younger, and tighter look accessible using the esthetic medicine tools like botulinum toxin and dermal filler injections, laser, and microdermabrasion. Forty-five patients from 35 to 52 years old (medium age 43.8), 38 women and 7 men underwent 5 sessions of Fraxel laser, 1 session of very low G prime HA, and Microbotox injection treatments from January 2016 and January 2017, were included in this study. In this study, we demonstrated that the usage of three treatments together, like mBTX, Volite, and Fractional laser, have a better result despite every single technique alone. The clinical result showed 98% (44 patients, 6 males, 38 females) of the patients had a smoother skin surface, brighter, more hydrated, and elastic skin; 68% of our patients (31 patients, 5 males, 26 females) showed less skin defects and staining as well as less small wrinkles, thanks to Fraxel laser treatment; 98% (44 patients, 6 males, 38 females) showed tighter skin with less sebaceous gland secretion. The aim of this study was to demonstrate that the combination of three techniques acts better and faster than single treatment to contrast facial aging and to improve skin texture and quality.
