The truth of the matter is that all of them work in theory but pretty much none of them work in practice.
Miami, Florida (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Dr. Rian A. Maercks, the medical director of the treasured Maercks Institute announced his secret to success in noninvasive body contouring, Maercks Multimodal Therapy (MMT). The announcement is accompanied by initiation of a blog series in which Dr. Maercks is releasing the changes he creates in his own body weekly in realtime.
With the myriad of touted noninvasive treatments available today, it seems impossible to determine what works. Dr. Rian A. Maercks, a Miami plastic surgeon and dedicated patient educator, has sought out to offer the public clarity. "The truth of the matter is that all of them work in theory but pretty much none of them work in practice." This is exactly why Dr. Maercks developed a procedure called Maercks Multimodal Therapy(MMT). "All technologies that improve skin tightness and thus appearance of cellulite do so by converting some flavor of energy wave into heat in or under the skin. To be effective, a temperature of 43 degrees Celsius has to be reached." Unfortunately for patients, few practitioners actually reach this treatment threshold. Reaching 43 degrees celsius puts you closer to a danger zone of causing complications and also becomes uncomfortable for the patient.
Dr. Maercks has developed a patent pending energy monitoring system that allows him to directly monitor the energy absorbtion and heat distribution throughout the body, ensuring treatment threshold is reached while protecting the patient from complications. This is one of the most important parts of MMT. The second important component is the use of multiple different modalities in the same intervention. "I have always delivered results with noninvasive techniques that were easily documented in photography and measurements but really left me unsatisfied as far as significance. This is why I developed MMT." By combining different types of radiofrequency application, multifrequency ultrasound, infrared light waves and laser therapy Dr. Maercks delivers an unparalleled therapy. "All energies and frequencies are absorbed differently with peak delivery in different depths of the skin, subcutaneous tissues and fat. This is why using a single modality will never be incredibly impressive. By creating different layers of cooperative planar contraction I now deliver initial results in less than one week and unparralleled changes at 6-12 weeks."
To share the success and limits of what Dr. Maercks calls the best of the best in noninvasive body therapy, he is giving the public a very personal window into the patient experience. For the second time, Dr. Maercks is creating a video of himself as a patient. This time, however, he is filming and releasing segments of this documentary weekly in a real time blog. "I want this to be honest and open. There are so many ways photographs can be decieving with subtle changes, I want people to be able to see the facts and judge for themselves." Dr. Maercks always suggests diet and excercise along with these treatments and wanted to remove these variables from the results so he came up with a controlled system. By treating only the right half of his abdomen, the left side becomes the control which of course is on the same exact diet and activity schedule. Weekly video exams and measurements along with Dr. Maercks' insights and experience will be posted on his blog http://www.rianmaercksmd.com/blog/
Dr. Maercks does not believe MMT is for everyone, but believes the nearly immediate results that keep improving for weeks are great for motivating people to make and maintain important lifestyle changes. "I personally have not been able to excercise properly for years since a car accident and spinal surgery and in that time have developed focal abdominal fat collections and lost definition. I am a good candidate for MMT because I have a moderate amount of fat and skin but not excessive. We will see characteristic and impressive changes in my body weekly."
