Local Dynamic Micromassage (LDM)

What is a Local Dynamic Micromassage (LDM)?

LDM or Local Dynamic Micro-massage is a facial procedure that delivers ultrasound technology to the deep layers of the skin through a massage mechanism. You may think of the LDM treatment as a facial massage that offers gentle and soothing properties. Moreover, the LDM stimulates the body and the skin’s wound healing properties for fast recovery. Thus, it is an appropriate gentle treatment for pre- and post-surgical facial procedures, like liposuction, facelifts, and eyebrow lifts, considering it helps prep the skin and addresses skin inflammatory issues.

Surgical procedures, like the above-stated examples, involve skin grafting, surgery, and stitches. As a result, the skin may experience redness, swelling, bruising, itchiness, and skin inflammatory problems. Since the first few days after the procedure is the most vital in reaching optimum healing and results, one must take high precautions within that time frame. With the help of the LDM facial treatment, the aftermath is reduced significantly, and the recovery period is shortened. 

Furthermore, the LDM massage also aids in skin care treatment, skin lifting, and tightening, considering it stimulates both the wound healing properties and the rejuvenating properties of the skin. You may treat it as your monthly skincare facial for a more volumized skin appearance. Many individuals come to our aesthetic clinic with one goal, delaying or lessening the physical indications of aging through non-invasive and non-surgical procedures. Thus, we offer LDM as one of the non-surgical, non-invasive treatments for skin lifting. It is a mild non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that stimulates the body’s natural components via natural processes to make the skin appear healthier and tauter.

How does LDM work?

The Local Dynamic Micro-massage (LDM) works by transmitting ultrasound technology of dual-frequency to the skin via an ultrasound device. The ultrasound wave alternates between 3Mhz and 10Mhz, depending on your skin condition, to reach the deep layers of the skin and the subcutaneous skin tissue. It also has a mechanism for modulating the dynamic process of the device for both the destruction of certain tissues and stimulation of specific components. As a result, the fibroblasts in the skin are stimulated, resulting in the active production and synthesis of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These components are responsible for the skin’s regeneration and wound healing properties. Then, it will leave you with bright, healthy, tight, and rejuvenated skin, making you appear youthful.


Since the LDM micro-massage is a mild and gentle facial massage, it applies to all individuals of skin types and skin tones. Thus, you may incorporate other facial treatments, particularly lifting treatments, if you aim to treat skin laxity. However, if you want the LDM massage for a post-operative treatment, you are not allowed to combine it with other facial treatments unless your administering doctor says otherwise. At the AMOA640 Skin Clinic, we ensure that you undergo a face-to-face consultation with our board-certified doctor so that they may assess your skin condition thoroughly. 

Once you have the doctor’s approval, our licensed technician will escort you to one of our treating rooms to have your skin prepped. You must note that skin prepping is vital to the effectiveness of any treatments at our clinic, so it is a must. Then, an aloe vera-like substance, a conducive gel that draws the ultrasound technology more for optimum results, is slathered onto the face. Afterward, the technician will administer the treatment and give you the facial massage you deserve. Lastly, post-treatment creams and sunscreen will be applied so you may resume your usual routine, considering it has no downtime due to its mild nature.

Clinical studies

A clinical study tested the efficacy of the Local Dynamic Micro-massage (LDM) in stimulating wound healing properties for post-operative measures. Its results have shown excellent results wherein the patients’ wounds were healed in an average of 6.3 days using the LDM device, which is significantly faster than without it. Moreover, no adverse effects were recorded throughout the treatment, as it successfully dealt with inflammation, bruising, swelling, and redness. 

In another trial conducting the same study, patients found the effects satisfactory. According to the data, the LDM treatment is an effective therapeutic option for operative aftermaths, such as pain, bruising, and swelling.


The Local Dynamic Micro-massage (LDM) is suited for individuals suffering from skin aging issues, such as skin laxity, dryness, dullness, enlarged pores, and wrinkles because it stimulates collagen and elastin production. The collagen and elastin in our skin are responsible for maintaining our healthy skin appearance. Moreover, many surgical doctors recommend the LDM treatment for pre-and post-operative measures for optimum healing and to help with the aftermath, including bruising, swelling, and redness, after the procedure. The LDM treatment is also a mild, gentle, non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, so it is safe for all skin types and colors. Although it is proven safe and effective, we only administer it to consenting adults unless the doctor allows it. So, most of our patients range from their mid-twenties and beyond.

Due to its mild nature, you may incorporate other treatments, like the V-Ro Lifting treatment, Aqua peel, and many more. However, you will need the doctor’s approval for this so that we avoid unwanted health risks because, at AMOA640 Skin Clinic, your health and well-being are our utmost priority. 

For optimum results, you must do this treatment every two months, but you may also do this every month, for some of our clients do this. Additionally, the treatment has no downtime. Ergo, you may resume your usual routine uninterrupted, and this treatment is highly advised for individuals with busy schedules.
