In the realm of medical aesthetics, there has been an evolution to include a wide range of treatments designed for natural results, safety, and little to no downtime. Due to the number of these in-demand technologies, each addressing different patient concerns and demographics, it may be difficult to choose which services to include in an aesthetic practice. The Luvo Darwin, exclusively distributed by Powered by MRP (Park City, Utah), can help practices build a customized set of essential treatments in one multi-modality workstation for a significantly lower investment. The platform costs around half the price of the only other system on the market with similar configurations.
Facial plastic surgeon and founder of MobleyMD, Steven Mobley, MD (Millcreek, Utah), explained the advantages of having multiple technologies in one device. “It allows me to offer a variety of treatments without having to purchase several machines,” he explained. “It brings versatility that single modality machines do not offer and has been great for our boutique type practice.”
A variety of handpieces are available with the Luvo Darwin, which can be added as needed, and offer essential treatments endorsed by top aesthetic practices. With multiple pulse train options, the Lucent IPL™ handpiece comes with three spot sizes to customize treatment on all anatomical areas and offers a variety of filters to address a wide range of patient concerns. “We use it often to treat hyperpigmentation which is what a lot of people in Utah are looking for,” reported Dr. Mobley. “In addition, technicians have several filters available to effectively improve acne, photodamage, redness, broken capillaries and stimulate collagen more efficiently for each patient.”
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling and surface RF are popular treatments for patients to address the early signs of aging and rejuvenate skin. “The Refresh™ surface RF handpiece helps me treat a wide range of patients and achieve a noticeable result in skin texture and firmness. This modality is a must if any patient wants an anti-aging treatment,” Dr. Mobley stated. “In addition, the Prolift RFM™ RF microneedling handpiece reduces fine lines, remains relatively pain-free, and is effective with little to no downtime. Not only that, disposable costs are low compared to other devices.” Dr. Mobley also highlighted the vacuum technology included in the lightweight Prolift RFM handpiece. “It makes the treatment more comfortable while also efficiently addressing more sensitive areas.”
In addition, Luvo Darwin includes the BARE 808 diode handpiece for fast and effective laser hair removal. According to Dr. Mobley, it has a large spot size with in-motion technology that helps him offer quick hair removal treatments with minimal discomfort. “What attracted me to the Darwin device was the versatility and ease of use,” Dr. Mobley expressed. “The ability to add to the machine as our aesthetic practice grows made it the right choice for us.”
