LDM® Treatment

Procedures With No Or Miminal Downtime

LDM® Treatment

LDM® or Local Dynamic Micro-Massage treats skin problems in the epidermis and dermis. It utilises dual-frequency ultrasound technology at high frequencies to exert a strong micro-massage effect on tissue structures. The micro-massage activates fibroblasts, rejuvenates the skin matrix and connective tissue, enhances collagen cross-linking, and encourages healing at a cellular level. It treats a variety of dermatological issues and medical aesthetics concerns, improving overall skin health without any downtime.

Three primary benefits of LDM treatment

1. Reduces “bad enzymes” Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPS)
MMPs contribute to inflammation and collagen degradation, they also appear to be involved in connective tissue metabolic disorders resulting in conditions such as acne, eczema and dermatitis. Inhibiting MMPs returns the skin back to its normal collagen metabolic state.

2. Activates HSPs (heat shock proteins)
HSPs aid in skin immunity and strengthens its ability to heal. They are produced to help the skin combat stressful conditions such as exposure to extreme temperatures and UV radiation.

3. Increase GAGs (glycosaminoglycans)
GAGs accelerate cell metabolism and hyaluronan content in skin. By increasing tissue turgor, it improves texture, tone and strengthens the skin barrier.

Most ultrasound systems use a single frequency, typically in the range of 1 to a maximum of 5 MHz, the therapeutic effect is thus far below the superficial skin layers. LDM uses a special frequency of 10 MHz other than 1 and 3MHz, which allows the energy to work effectively on the epidermis and dermis, where disease processes take place. In addition, the system switches and combines frequencies at timed intervals, ensuing better dynamic pressure distribution in the tissue over several skin layers.

After cleansing the skin, a layer of gel is applied onto the treatment area, an ultrasound probe is then gently rolled over the intended area. The treatment is comfortable without any pain and downtime.
The treatment ranges from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the indication or condition.

While improvement may be observed after just one session, for optimal and full results, LDM should be performed once every week or fortnight for the first six weeks. Maintenance sessions are recommended once every month to two months.

Dermatological conditions such as eczema or psoriasis may need up to eight treatments and in more complex and severe cases, ten to sixteen sessions.

Although LDM® is a great treatment on its own, results are augmented when combined with other medical facial services, energy-based devices or injectables. In fact, it helps shorten procedural downtime by reducing inflammation, and increasing cell regeneration and metabolism.
Yes, LDM is suitable and safe for all skin types and colour.
