FYI: What does Ultrasonic actually mean?
Ultrasonic refers to sound frequency. An Ultrasonic Cavitation hand piece will make a sound we cannot hear while it is vibrating. We measure the vibration times per second as sound frequency, and refer to this as Hertz. Humans can hear from 20 hertz to 20,000 hertz. We are unable to hear anything above or below these levels. Therefore sound waves with frequency above 20,000 hertz we call Ultrasonic. A Megahertz is 1,000,000 hertz; we refer to as MHz. Usually an ultrasonic frequency of 1MHz to 5MHz is used for various medical treatments. It is highly penetrative and directional.
The vibration of ion (positive and negative alternation of sound waves) produces a strong wave of pressure to fat cell membranes. Usually a fat cell membrane cannot withstand this pressure, it will explode into the liquid content. This liquid product leaves the body through the normal channels of the body’s metabolism.
Ultrasonic Cavitation customers have seen results which we believe are due to the quantity of fat cells being destroyed and therefore reduced, and the body’s fat cell metabolism is improved. Destroying these fat cells can remove the body’s environment for fat storage.
Ultrasonic cavitation technology enables concentrated sonic energy to be directed only at localized treatment areas, and is thus capable of selectively disrupting the subcutaneous fat cells through thousands of microscopic implosions impacting the fat cell membranes. After breakdown of adipose tissue (fat cell membrane), the fat is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where they are enzymatic ally metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water-soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system used for new energy generation whereas the insoluble free fatty acids enter
the liver where they are decomposed like any other simple fatty acid.
Tripolar Radio Frequency
Tripolar RF assists in the Metabolism of Large Fat Granules previously ruptured by cavitation in treatment ONE
The dermis and subcutaneous layer are heated simultaneously forcing collagen fibers to contract. The contracting fibres pull and tighten the skin, creating an immediate effect. Fibroblasts’ metabolism increases, producing new collagen fibers leaving a long term effect.
Most of the RF energy enters into the deeper dermal layer, causing the dermal layer of skin to thicken, decreasing wrinkle depth, leaving the skin firmer with contour lifted.
The original collagen protein becomes strengthened to increase the new collagen protein as a result of the radio frequency stimulating the skin.
Lipolysis (Mono-polar RF + Cavitation)
This treatment combined with one hand piece is aimed at both rupturing remaining fat cell membranes through cavitation, plus further forcing the excretion of triglycerides and skin tightening with Mono-polar RF.
High-power mono-polar radiofrequency currents preferentially and intensively heat the sub-dermis (where cellulite is located),exerting a triple slimming/tightening effect on the cellulite tissues. Specifically, these currents:
1. Immediately shorten the existing collagen fibers, thereby offering an immediate skin tightening/lifting effect.
2. Stimulate the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin fibers, thereby offering a separate skin tightening effect.
3. Stimulate the adipocytes to release fat into the bloodstream and physically damage a number of them (adipocytes are very “fragile” cells, in comparison to fibroblasts or other tissue cells).
Vacuum + Tripolar RF
Using high-frequency RF and vacuum technology combined, direct access is significantly increased to the deeper fat cells, bringing fat cells to a fast-
active state from the production of localized heat, so that effective blood circulation occurs.
This increased localized blood circulation within the dermis aims to tighten the sagging or loose skin due to the normal effects of ageing. Your skin will have its elasticity improved aided by an increased metabolic activity. Then through the sweat glands and lymphatic system the excess fat and toxins are excreted out of the body. This aims to further dissolve fat cells, strengthening the integrity of cells mitochondria, enhancing blood and lymph circulation with metabolism benefits.
