Legato TM III is a device coupling radiofrequency and ultrasound for the comprehensive management of skin aging and treatment of a wide range of skin lesions and imperfections.
Treatment: Rejuvenate and improve skin appearance
Legato ™ provides a fast and efficient response to:
- Skin slackening of the face, neck, neckline, arms, hands, stomach, thighs.
- Photo-aging of the skin (wrinkled skin, fine lines, pigmentary lesions.
- White or red stretch marks.
- Hypertrophic and keloid scars.
All skin colors (phototypes I to VI) and tanned skin can be treated with no risk of depigmentation.

The course of a Legato ™ session
Legato ™ is a technology known as Trans-Epidermal Delivery (TED) that takes place in 3 phases.
There are 1 to 5 treatment sessions based on the indication and intensity of the treatment. Each session lasts about twenty minutes and is spaced one month apart.
The physician uses an anesthetic cream beforehand or suggests a local anesthetic for the comfort of the patient during treatment.
Belly firming with Legato™ III
Fractional radiofrequency generates vertical micro-tunnels of 120 microns in diameter every 180 microns of skin at the dermal-epidermal junction by "microplasma" effect.
This principle of purely ablative action without thermal effect guarantees that melanocytes in the basal layer, which is the deepest in the epidermis, are never stimulated. Legato ™ can work on any skin phototypes.
Treatment of stretch marks with Legato™ III
As in any fractional technique, areas of healthy skin around microtunnels are preserved to promote ultra-fast epidermis repair.
The doctor will determine the right density and depth of the micro-channels. This action is truly crucial to working the superficial tissues (crumpled, dilated pores, texture, stretch marks, scars, pigmentary lesions, etc.).
The micro-wells will act as vectors for the active ingredients to reach the subcutaneous tissues effectively.
Thanks to a simple change of the setting of the Legato ™, the doctor transforms the "micro-plasma" action of the radio frequency into an essentially thermal and deep intervention. This gradual increase in the temperature of the connective tissue has the effect of generating inflammation of the fibroblasts, forcing them to produce collagen and elastin.
This action is absolutely essential when the doctor works on the ptosis, whether it is on the face (especially the oval) or to defibrose the deep tissue when treating stretch marks and scars.
Treatment of wrinkles with Legato™ III
The thermal phase is intentionally avoided when treating particular skin marks such as keloid or hypertrophic scars or melasma in which the vascular network or melanocytes must not be stimulated by heat.
Penetration of active molecules
The physician deposits in small drops on the treatment area, a combination of active products intended to pass into the dermis (non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid, retinoids, vitamins, peptides, organic silicon, etc.) as NCTF® 135 HA FillMed.
By simple contact with the skin, ultrasound at a very specific frequency (about 50 Khz), alternating pressures and depressions (sonophoresis phenomenon), function as an acoustic jackhammer, it will force the penetration of the compounds into the deep tissue.
There are some rednesses that last depending to the intensity of the treatment: a maximum of two to seven days. Light crusts may appear as well.
To prevent and mitigate inflammation, an LED session is performed before and after treatment with Legato™.
The patient should not be exposed to sunlight for 3 to 4 weeks. It is also important to apply a repairing balm that stimulates the repair of the skin for 3 to 4 days.
The patient observes an improvement from the first session, but the results are optimal 2 to 3 months after the end of the treatment so the skin's collagen regenerates.
