Alastin Skincare, Inc. is launching TransFORM Body Treatment with TriHex Technology at the upcoming American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) Annual Meeting in Phoenix.
When this product is applied after non-surgical body fat reduction and energy-based body skin tightening procedures, it helps accelerate outcomes by supporting the body’s natural repair processes. It also helps to support the production of elastin and collagen to enhance the results of body skin tightening procedures. It also provides benefits as a stand-alone skin tightening treatment to address lax, sagging skin and the crepey texture that often accompanies aging.
“Body fat reduction procedures leave residual fat fragments or fat debris that are created after breaking down fatty tissue,” says Alan Widgerow, MBBCh (MD), MMed (MHS), FCS, Chief Medical Officer, ALASTIN, in a news release. “These large fragments may linger and delay visible results. The body’s natural clean-up process to eliminate these damaged fat cells is called autophagy. TransFORM supports this natural process to enhance the overall treatment and patient experience.”
A blend of peptides including Hexapeptide-11 is encapsulated in a proprietary LipoDRONE™ Delivery System, which helps shuttle the peptide through the skin to the dermal fat around the hair follicle, to naturally signal the process of fat debris clearance post-treatment. At the same time, Alastin’s patented TriHex Technology works to support the increase of elastin and collagen production and help boost the body’s natural hyaluronic acid production.
Initial split-body evaluations utilizing the TransFORM product in conjunction with energy-based devices for non-surgical fat reduction have demonstrated enhanced results in subjects on the side treated with TransFORM. Moreover, daily application of TransFORM with no energy device treatment yielded an 11 percent improvement in skin roughness and crepiness at week 4 and 38 percent improvement by week 8.
“While fat reduction body sculpting has come a long way, and the results we are seeing with non-invasive fat reduction are impressive, there is still room to improve. Optimal results post-procedure can take as long as 3 months or more, and some patients are left with residual skin laxity or crepiness. Having a topical body product that helps accelerate results as well as improving skin laxity and crepiness would be a welcome addition to the treatment protocol” says Suzanne Kilmer, MD, Founder of the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Northern California, and Clinical Professor at the University of California, Davis. “Our early body sculpting case study findings utilizing energy-based fat reduction devices with the addition of TransFORM Body Treatment show great promise. Additional trials are underway to further support benefits of TransFORM Body Treatment.”
