INTRODUCTIONS 14 MARCH 2014 | Med Esthetics [ 01 ] COMPREHENSIVE EYE AREA CARE The I.C.E. (Intense Clinical Eye) Sculpting Set from Rhonda Allison features three products designed to reduce puffi ness and improve skin tone and fi rmness around the eye. The set includes: Eye Lift, which targets collagen-forming cells to fi rm and lift skin; Peptide 38, a formulation of next-generation peptides that plump and hydrate; and mini ice globes applied to relieve tension around the eyes and calm stressed skin. Contact: 866.313.7546, [ 02 ] FASTER LASER HAIR REMOVAL Offer faster, more comfortable laser hair removal with the SopranoICE from Alma Lasers. The 810nm diode laser features the company's Super Hair Removal (SHR) technology—that allows operators to treat at 10 hertz per second—and multiple cooling mechanisms for more confortable treatments. Ronald L. Teed, MD, of Cascade Medical Boutique, based in Hillsboro, Oregon, calls it "a win- win for me and my patients. Its innovative combination of heating and cooling, light handpiece and optional applicator tips for hard-to-reach areas drive enhanced outcomes." Contact: 866.414.2562, [ 03 ] NEXT GENERATION MICRONEEDLING The new, fl uid-resistant, vented Turbo Safety Needle from Eclipse Aesthetics—for use with its Eclipse MicroPen microneedling system—virtually eliminates cross- contamination risk by blocking migration of fl uids through the needle cartridge housing. The vented port protects skin by reducing vacuum pressure that could contribute to the formation of broken capillaries. "The unique feature of the needle cartridge with fl uid barrier design reduces the risk of cross-contamination exponentially even as it oscillates back and forth at a very high rate of speed," said Tess Mauricio, MD, of the Scripps Ranch Dermatology & Cosmetic Center. Contact: 800.759.6876, [ 04 ] MULTI-STRENGTH SKIN LIGHTENING Clear Tone Pigment Clearing Booster from SkinPrint boosts skin lightening and reduces dark spots. The skin lightening treatment is available in a 2% or 8% (prescription- only) hydroquinone formulation with anti-infl ammatory ingredients to reduce redness and discomfort. The hydro- alcoholic base breaks down the skin barrier for better ingredient delivery. Contact: 845.294.8501, [ 05 ] PAIN-FREE INJECTIONS The Vibration Anesthesia Device from Blaine Labs uses the Gate Theory of pain to make injections more tolerable for patients without the use of topical or oral anesthetics and pain relievers. The vibrating device is held fi rmly against skin during injection and includes a bright LED light to illuminate the injection area.
