Process of heating of fat cells in the adipose layer. This loose connective tissue is comprised mostly of adipocytes and stores energy in the form of lipids (fats). The heat from RF (radio frequency) forces the adipocytes to release the fatty acids into the lymphatic system, which acts as a filter for the body. Once the fatty acids are released from the adipocytes, they shrink and the body becomes slimmer. RF can thus be used to enhance Ultrasound Cavitation or as a stand alone for therapy.
RF technology heats both the dermal and subcutaneous layers of skin. This heating process during treatment causes collagen fibers within the layers of skin to contract. The contracting of fibers tightens the skin creating a tighter, brighter, more youthful appearance. New collagen and elastin fibers below the surface are created as a result of the increase in metabolism of fibroblasts. This production causes the long lasting effects that individual’s desire.
The desire for tighter skin is most often wanted for an individual’s face. RF treatments alone are mostly commonly used on the face to tighten mild to moderate sagging of facial tissue. The best results are usually seen on individuals in their mid-30s to mid-50s.
By treating the forehead, the skin across the forehead is tightened and eye brows are lifted. By treating under the eyes, the skin is thickened, tightened and the upper cheeks are lifted. Across the cheeks, RF lifts the skin slightly and diminishes large pores. Over the mid-face, RF diminishes sagging across the jaw line and shrinks jowls. Under the neck, RF diminishes the ‘waddle’ or ‘chicken neck’ that so many individuals see as they age. With RF advancements, immediate results are seen in almost all patients during the first treatment.
RF treatments can be performed on any skin type, without anesthesia or alterations in normal daily routines. RF energy is able to penetrate deeper into the skin (below the muscle) and affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers, causing tightening and improvements to the underlying tissue structure.
Ultrasound Lipocavitation- a nonsurgical treatment to melt down fats .The treatment uses cavitation technology which allows for non-surgical attack of inflexible fat deposits that no matter how much you diet and exercise, never seems to disappear. Unlike a traditional tummy tuck or liposuction, in ultrasonic cavitation there are no knives, no anesthesia and no surgery. Ultrasonic waves of high intensity ultrasounds generate cavitation in liquids. Cavitation causes extreme effect locally. When sonicating liquids at high intensities the sound waves that propagate into the liquid media result in alternating high pressure and low pressure cycles. During the low pressure cycle, high intensity ultrasonic waves create small vacuum bubbles or voids in the liquid. When the bubbles attain a volume at which they can no longer absorb energy, they collapse during a high pressure cycle.
Meta Therapy is an advanced dual action treatment. It works by creating thousands of precise microscopic perforations in the surface of the skin, activating the body’s natural repair mechanism. This part of the result is achieved by the production of new collagen which naturally repairs the micro perforations. During treatment, active ingredients are driven into the skin, where the ingredients can be utilized and nourish the live cells. The active ingredients help promote healing and the production of the newly forming collagen, providing the perfect conditions for a visible, and natural result.
