LDM®-MED (Local Dynamic Micro-Ultrasound)
What is LDM®-MED (Local Dynamic Micro-Ultrasound)?
- A technology based on dual-frequency ultrasound waves with high intensity
- Modulate dynamic processes of production and destruction within connective tissue
- Skin tightening and improvement of the skin structure / Improving skin consistency and firmness
- Stimulation of endogenous production of hyaluronic acid / Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
LDM®-MED (Local Dynamic Micro-Ultrasound)
LDM®-MED is a dual-frequency ultrasound technology that combines different frequencies up to 10 MHz in one LDM® wave, thereby alternating between two frequencies up to 500 times per second. There are two possible wave combinations in the LDM®-MED machine– ultrasound waves with 1 and 3 MHz frequencies as well as waves with 3 and 10 MHz frequencies. Such hybrid waves produce special pressure gradients in tissue, influencing cells and extracellular structures of connective tissue.
AEON LDM®-MED (Local Dynamic Micro-Ultrasound) is a form of ultrasound treatment where the dual-frequencies achieve a much higher intensity than conventional Ultrasound treatments.
This technology is based on dual-frequency ultrasound waves and is able to modulate dynamic processes of production and destruction within connective tissue which is of primary Importance in different aesthetical applications or dermatological diseases.
LDM offers the option of an effective, non-invasive treatment for skin tightening wrinkle reduction, improvement of the skin structure and stimulation of endogenous production of hyaluronic acid, improving skin consistency and firmness as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
LDM®-MED (Local Dynamic Micro-Ultrasound)’s different frequencies can directly affect the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) which are responsible for balancing skin metabolism and influencing the production of heat shock proteins (HSPs) that are necessary for the proper cell protection. They can also modulate the content of hyaluronic acid (HA) within the skin, thereby improving the turgor and moisturization of tissue. All these molecular components (MMPs, HSPs and HA) are of primary importance in modern anti-aging and dermatologic science. Their proper modulation is considered to be indispensable for effective aesthetical and dermatological treatments.
Stimulation of collagen production through fibroblasts shows the best results if supported by simultaneous modulation of MMPs that can stimulate new collagen. HSP molecules account for correct protein folding – a process that is tremendously diminished in aged skin. Production of HA is essentially important for skin moisturization and elasticity. Specific modulation of all these components can lead to significant improvement of skin appearance and consequently reduce signs of aging.
In summary, LDM®-MED has:
- No Downtime, Painless
- Safe for all Skin Types
- Can be applied year-round
- Can be used in conjunction with other treatments
Conventional ultrasound systems use the frequencies of 1 MHz and 3 MHz. Ultrasound waves of these frequencies can effectively penetrate into the body to the depths of several centimeters, which is clearly below epidermal and dermal layers where the main aging processes take place. LDM® technology applies additionally an ultrasound wave of 10 MHz frequency with a penetration depth of nearly 0,3 cm which is consequently almost fully absorbed in the upper skin layers for skin rejuvenation.
The wave of this frequency has additionally a very small wavelength of 150 µm and can thus directly influence single cells or small cell groups within tissue. This property is responsible for some very specific reactions of different cells to ultrasound waves of 10 MHz frequency.
- Wrinkle reduction
- Skin tightening (face and body)
- Skin rejuvenation
- Atopic/ perioral dermatitis
Our aesthetic doctor recommends this treatment for individuals with loose skin, lines, wrinkles, chronic acne, eczema and who are afraid of invasive treatment due to sensitive skin, or individuals who want healthier-looking skin.
You can expect smoother, firmer and brighter skin. It also helps inflammatory skin reduce inflammation and as this requires an accumulative effect, several treatments are necessary.
In general, treatment duration is 5-25 mins depending on treatment areas and indications. Regular activities such as work, exercise or socializing can be resumed immediately after treatment.
Depending on the customer’s age and skin condition, aesthetical treatments are recommended once per week for 4-6 weeks while maintenance sessions should be done once every 1-2 months. Dermatological applications may need 6-8 sessions and 10-16 sessions in complex cases, depending on each individual.
