Cryolipolysis is a very effective therapy in non-surgical bodycontouring. We analysed histologic tissue reaction after treatments with different cryolipolysis devices and selected actually effective cryolipolysis devices that are offered on the market Thereafter the tissue reaction after combination therapy (cryolipolysis, injection lipolysis, radial shock wave) was quantified histologically. One of the most effective device was found to be the Z Lipo device from Zimmer MedizinSysteme (Neu Ulm, Germany). Therefore, we used this device together with a radial shockwave (Z Wave pro; Zimmer MedizinSysteme, Neu Ulm, Germany). The combination of the Z Lipo device with radial shock wave (Z Wave pro) and injection lipolysis (Compound 1 and 2, NETWORK-Lipolysis, Drensteinfurt, Germany) showed maximum histological effects (+++) with regard to adipocte damagde, grade of inflammation and phagocytosis, investigated by two independent pathologists. We also investigated in a prospective clinical study 5 patients with cryolipolysis and radial shockwave versus 10 patients treated with cryolipolysis and radial shockwave and injection lipolysis in one session. Patients were analysed in respect to waist reduction, pain, side effects and satisfation after 3 months. Groups were compared with multiple regression analysis and t-test. In line with markedly improved clinical results, this combination treatment is highly recommended for routine clinical practice.

A practical approach to patient treatments adding a High-Power Optically Pumped Semiconductor 577nm yellow Laser (HOPSL) to your toolbox.
Superficial cutaneous vascular lesions are commonly seen. Most facial telangiectasias, veins, rosacea and acne respond well to the same 577 nm yellow laser. Even superficial moles and small viral warts can be removed.
Melasma remains a difficult problem to treat. Patients who have telangiectatic erythema within the melasma lesions often achieve better results with using the Q-Switched Nd Yag laser to clear the excessive melanin, combining this with a yellow light antiangiogenetic laser treatment in the 577 nm wavelength. The 577 nm yellow laser is a useful treatment option to augment control of the vascular component of melasma, and also decrease facial telangiectasia. The 577 nm yellow laser alone is also useful to improve other pigmented problems like epidermal melasma, solar lentigo, and photodamaged skin.
The objective of this session is to discuss the optimal laser parameters and establish some clinical guidelines for therapy with a HOSPL 577 nm laser.
While there are many non invasive needleless treatments for the lower face, lifting of the upper face for additional results remains a challenge. As an adjunct to energy based devices (EBD) aesthetic treatments for face lifting, we can now augment with treatments into the scalp dermis using compressed air to drive small molecule of hypertonic saline or HA into the skin. This is a synergistic treatment that complements EBD lower face lifting for a more complete lift. It also overcomes some of the drawbacks of injectable procedures. The air jet lateral dispersion of hypertonic saline and HA gives immediate dermal reinforcement, and subsequently the body generates its usual wound healing responses. Pneumatic technologies also induces this wound-healing process in the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS). There is no downtime with this combination treatment.
