SmartXide2 DOT/RF: Combined Action, Total Rejuvenation
DEKA has developed an innovative and exclusive configuration designed for aesthetic medicine and dermatological surgery. The equipment is called Smartxide2 DOT/RF and introduces for the first time the combined action of CO2 laser with radiofrequency (RF).
SmartXide2 corrects skin imperfections and counteracts the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and flabbiness, by exerting a unique action on the tissues with effective stimulation of neocollagenesis. It is also ideal for areas hitherto considered untreatable such as the neck, décolleté and periocular area.
DEKA, world leader in the development of advanced laser systems, concentrated the results of thirty years of know-how into the technological advancements of the SmartXide2. The CO2, laser source with exclusive PSD® (Pulse Shape Design) technology, achieves performance levels never attained before in dermatological applications. The therapeutic action selectively reaches surface tissues and deeper areas, ensuring maximum reliability in controlling the application, with minimum thermal damage and extremely rapid recovery times for patients. In line with the ongoing quest for innovation, DEKA paves the way towards a new multidisciplinary, avant-garde laser system.
The New Era of Vaginal Rejuvenation
A Revolutionary New Approach to Female Sexuality
V2LR CONFIGURATION OF SMARTXIDE2: A MINIMALLY INVASIVE TECHNOLOGY THAT ENHANCES QUALITY OF LIFE
The SmartXide2 system, with V2LR con guration, offers the latest breakthrough laser treatment for vulvo-vaginal problems (MonaLisaTouchTM) and cosmetic/functional female genital surgery. Safe and minimally invasive, these procedures are the new alternative to:
- pharmacological therapy for post-menopause atrophy of genital mucosa, using the MonaLisa TouchTM treatment;
- surgical treatment of vaginal laxity;
- annoying or invasive treatments of urinary incontinence;
- traditional plastic surgery for the correction of vulvo-vaginal morphological alterations due to hereditary factors, pregnancy or natural ageing.
To perform these innovative procedures, DEKA has designed a new radiofrequency CO2 laser, with the exclusive PSD® (Pulse Shape Design) technology that generates pulses speci cally developed for V2LR applications (D-Pulse or DEKA-Pulse), together with DEKA’s proprietary HiScan V2LR scanning system.
Like all the other organs in our bodies, the female genitals are not immune to the effects of time, especially duringmenopause. The genital tract is particularly affected by declining oestrogen production. About 50% of all postmenopausal women complain about the typical symptoms of genital atrophy interfering heavily with their sexual experience andquality of life. Increasingly, relatively young and socially active women turn to specialists to care for their condition.
DEKA has developed a breakthrough procedure for treating age-related vulvovaginal problems. SmartXide2, the innovative CO2 laser system specifically produced for V2LR (Vulvo-Vaginal Laser Reshaping), deals with the new field of medicine for vulvo-vaginal reshaping. A solution for all women without the adverse side effects of drug therapies.
VAGINAL ATROPHY: CHANGES THAT AFFECT QUALITY OF LIFE
Menopause, whether natural or induced, determines a range of changes, involving virtually all organs and systems of a woman’s body. The end of oestrogen production by the ovaries is linked to the onset of disorders resulting from the vulvo-vaginal atrophy such as dryness, dyspareunia, vaginal irritation with itching and burning.
Vaginal atrophy becomes clinically apparent a few years after the onset of menopause. Studies show that the changes and symptoms are present in 50% of post-menopausal women, determining adverse effects on their overall well-being and, in many cases, their sexual life.
During menopause, the broblasts sited in the vaginal mucosa, reduce their own activity and cannot produce the proper amount of collagen and molecules required to maintain an adequate ground matrix structure that is necessary to preserve a correct connective tissue hydration. The mucosa becomes dry, less nourished and therefore fragile and more prone to infection due to the higher pH, making the environment open to colonization of pathogenic microorganisms.
MONALISA TOUCH TM : ANOTHER STEP FORWARD FOR WOMEN’S WELL-BEING
To render this procedure absolutely safe and fast the CO2 laser is distributed in small spots (called DOTs) separated from each other by healthy tissue. This particular technique is called fractioned and has been proven to be effective in restoring the atrophic vaginal mucosa by inducing a true rejuvenation. The vagina rolls back the years regaining extramatricial components and uids, thickness of the connective tissue and epithelium, thus recovering trophism, tonicity, elasticity and rmness as when it was younger. Restabilizing the natural turnover of the epithelial cells the natural conditions for nourishment of lactobacilli is restored; pH goes back to lower levels, reactivating the acid barrier to pathogens.
The laser acts directly on the mucosa of the vaginal walls by stimulating the metabolic activation of the broblasts. A detailed histological investigation, carried out in collaboration with the University of Pavia, has allowed to study ultrastructural aspects in depth. The results highlighted that the treatment with SmartXide2 V2LR activates the biosynthesis of collagen and the restoration of the proper composition of the extracellular matrix, with collagen bres, ground substance and adequate water content. The regenerated mucosa restores functionality that it had lost over the years.
