Abstract

BACKGROUND: As body contouring procedures have become more popular, post-procedural skin laxity is a concern. Non-invasive body contouring technologies may effectively reduce body fat, but modestly affect skin tightening.

OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy and safety of a topical skin tightening agent in combination with hyperthermic diode laser lipolysis.

METHODS: Herein, we describe five patients in which a skin tightening concentrate of 5% yeast extract, 2% hydrolyzed rice protein content, and 2.5% tripeptide was used after 1500-2100 J/cm2 of hyperthermic 1060 nm diode laser.

RESULTS: Overall, all patients had a subjective positive response and high satisfaction with the combined treatment results of improvement in skin laxity and fat reduction. In all five cases, patients demonstrated visible fat reduction and skin improvement on photographs taken between weeks 6-18 compared to baseline. Blinded investigators correctly predicted the order of the photographs based on treatment results. No adverse events were reported.

CONCLUSION: This case series demonstrated that a combined topical skin tightening concentrate with a hyperthermic laser lipolysis device may achieve improved aesthetic outcomes without adverse events. J Drugs Dermatol. 2018;17(7):780-785.
