Reveal Your Radiance with LDM®-MED Skin Rejuvenation
LDM®-MED: A Clinically Proven Dual-Frequency Ultrasound Technology for Treating
Diverse Skin Conditions
LDM®-MED (Local Dynamic Micro-Massage) is a dual-frequency ultrasound technology that regulates dynamic processes in connective tissue. It stimulates skin cell renewal and enhances the immune system by pushing energy waves through aged skin cells. With almost no downtime or adverse effects, this treatment encourages natural healing at the cellular level.
This treatment has gained widespread adoption in dermatological, medical aesthetics, and plastic surgery clinics worldwide due to its proven efficacy in treating various skin conditions.
TREATMENT INDICATIONS BY LDM®-MED
LDM®-MED technology offers a wide range of applications in both dermatological and aesthetic
|Skin tightening||Acne, acne scars|
|Connective tissue lifting||Eczema, Perioral dermatitis|
|Anti-aging, wrinkles, fold||Hypertrophic scars/keloids|
|Cellulite||Chronic leg ulcer|
The LDM®-MED treatment method employs a strategic approach to achieve molecular balance
within the skin, targeting specific elements that contribute to collagen breakdown and
rejuvenation. These actions have a significant impact on collagen synthesis, immune response,
and the structural integrity of the skin.
- Control Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs):
By reducing MMPs, collagen breakdown is minimised, allowing for enhanced skin repair and
regeneration. It helps to suppress excessive inflammation, prevent scarring, and optimise the
- Activate Heat Shock Proteins (HSPs):
HSPs activation increases the skin’s immune response, fortifying its defense mechanisms.
Additionally, HSPs play a crucial role in promoting collagen synthesis, ensuring the production
of new, healthy collagen fibers.
- Increase Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs):
Hyaluronic acid (HA), as a type of GAG, plays a vital role in maintaining skin moisture, resulting
in improved hydration levels. Moreover, the increased presence of GAGs accelerates skin
metabolism, facilitating a more vibrant and youthful complexion.
How is LDM®-MED technology different from other ultrasound systems?
Traditional ultrasound systems typically operate at frequencies of 1 MHz and 3 MHz, allowing for deeper penetration into the body, reaching several centimeters below the epidermal and dermal layers where aging processes predominantly occur.
LDM®-MED technology introduces an additional ultrasound wave at a frequency of 10 MHz, which has a shallower penetration depth of approximately 0.3 cm. This higher frequency is predominantly absorbed within the upper layers of the skin, which is important in skin rejuvenation.
Furthermore, LDM®-MED is able to achieve higher intensity compared to conventional aesthetic-medical ultrasound treatments. This increase in intensity is enabled by its unique ability to switch between frequencies, allowing for a more versatile and customisable treatment approach.
What does the treatment process involve?
Following a consultation with our doctors, a clinic assistant will guide you through the necessary preparation, including cleaning the treatment area. To facilitate the treatment, a layer of ultrasound gel will be carefully applied to the treatment area. The doctor will then select the suitable program and utilise the appropriate probe for the targeted treatment area. No prior numbing is necessary because the treatment is painless.
What can I expect after treatment?
You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment, as there is no downtime. You can expect an improvement in the texture, firmness, and radiance of your skin. Even after the initial treatment, you will notice a difference, with smoother and brighter skin. It is important to note that achieving optimal outcomes may require multiple treatment sessions due to the accumulative effect it has on the skin.
How many sessions are required?
The improvement in skin appearance is often noticeable after the first session of treatment. The number of sessions needed to achieve optimal results, as well as the duration of the results, can vary based on several factors. These factors include your lifestyle habits, age, skin condition, and the type of treatment undergone.
For aesthetic concerns, it is typically recommended to undergo treatments twice per week over a period of 4 to 6 weeks. Once the desired results have been achieved, maintenance sessions are advised every one to two months to sustain the benefits.
In the case of dermatological conditions like psoriasis and eczema, the treatment may require a greater number of sessions. Typically, 6 to 8 treatments are recommended, and in more complex cases, up to 10 to 16 sessions may be needed, depending on the severity of the condition.
Can LDM®-MED be combined with other treatment modalities?
At Dr D Aesthetics Medical Clinic, we often combine LDM®-MED treatments with various non- invasive and minimally-invasive medical aesthetic procedures. These may include radio frequency treatments, lasers, and injections.
By incorporating LDM®-MED before or after treatments such as injectables or laser therapies, it helps to reduce downtime by lowering inflammation, promoting the healing process, improving skin immunity, and increasing the presence of hyaluronic acid in the cells for improved skin moisture and hydration.
While LDM®-MED is an exceptional standalone treatment, its synergistic effects make it an excellent complementary option alongside injectable treatments and energy based devices.
Is LDM®-MED treatment suitable for me?
LDM®-MED is suitable for most individuals seeking aesthetic treatments, even those who have sensitive skin. It is especially suited for people who are looking for a comfortable, non-invasive treatment with no downtime.
However, at-risk individuals such as those suffering from cancers, active skin infections or having a cardiac pacemaker should avoid LDM®-MED treatment. At Dr D Aesthetics Medical Clinic, our aesthetic doctors will carefully assess your eligibility on a case-by-case basis during a consultation. Contact us today to make an appointment!
