Ultrasonic cavitation, also known as aesthetic cavitation, is a relatively new technique which makes use of a phenomenon long known in physics. This phenomenon is called cavitation and is a very smart way to reduce fat, because it converts it into liquid and then naturally eliminats it in the urine. Nowadays ultrasonic cavitation is considered as an alternative treatment to surgical liposuction. It is a non-invasive procedure with results obtained in a very short time.
Ultrasonic cavitation reduces fat cells with certain manipulation techniques, thanks to a hand piece that is placed on the skin precisely on the area that is to be treated. The ultrasound forms bubbles in the tissue where the fat cells are. The bubbles expand and are immediately compressed. The temperature increases due to sudden variation in pressure and the bubbles implode. This implosion damages the fat cells which are then excreted in the urine. For a more detailed technical explanation see here.
Sagging skin on the neck, décolleté and face along with wrinkles are common problems associated with aging. This is mainly due to decreasing of collagen production as skin loses its quality. Radiofrequency (RF) systems are the most commonly used procedure to stimulate collagen production and strengthen the skin structure. RF enables skin tightening and improvement of the skin's appearance painlessly without the post-operative downtime of classic surgery or other invasive methods. Radiofrequency is a non-invasive way of tightening loose or lax skin around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, jaw line, jowls and also the area under the chin/neck. This is a great way of reducing fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and improving skin tone and texture as well as dull skin. It can also be used for body tightening and skin improvement. Radiofrequency treatment uses electrical pulses. It heats the dermis (the deepest skin layer) through hand pieces without damaging the epidermis (the top layers of the skin), to stimulate new collagen growth and provide an improvement in skin laxity and appearance, to remodel and enhance dermal density with minimal risks.
Tissue Retraction: The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibres immediately tightening the skin to remodel and re-juvenate the previous effects of aging.
Collagen Formation: The treatment stimulates the collagen formation by heating the dermis and it then acts as a new deep foundation for the skin. This produces further delayed tightening, which becomes evident over the next few months.
Improved Circulation: Radiofrequency also improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage and provides a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance.
The fat contained (triglycerides) fragments into diglycerides that are expelled via the urinary system. When cavitation is followed by a lymphatic drainage treatment, the process is faster, as the drainage is very effective eliminating liquids. The low-frequency ultrasonic waves are useful in combating fat accumulations. They produce lipolysis of fatty acids from adipocytes (fat-laden cells) due to a phenomenon known as stable cavitation, and increased cell permeability of the adipocytes. Furthermore, there is a breakdown of the fibres through mechanical action. As a result, some content of adipocytes is eliminated by the metabolism. Lipofirm PLUS works with four different operative modes which can be adjusted according to the imperfection to be treated; it is the only cavitation device in the aesthetic market that utilises the so-called "adaptive" mode, which is an emission mode that automatically adjusts frequency emission relative to the tissue characteristics - this is undoubtedly considered as an outstanding effect which boosts treatment efficacy.
