The Ultimate Contour features the combination of applied high-intensity therapeutic ultrasound and radio frequency integrated into one device. Current applications include:
- Skin tightening
- Body Contouring
- Treatment of cellulite
Ultrasonic cavitation has recovered its leading role due to effects achieved through its application at emission frequencies significantly higher than the frequencies currently used in the field of Aesthetic Medicine.
Two phases occur during ultrasonic cavitation. The compression phases exerts positive pressure whereas expansion phases exert negative pressure. During compression phases, the fluid molecules tend to move closer, and during expansion phases they tend to move away. As these phases repeat, micro-bubbles show a progressive enlargement that causes their collapse and implosion producing shock wave emissions. This process is the Cavitation Phenomenon.
Cavitation of fat tissues is selectively produced by the emission frequency since the fluid content of the tissues shows better mobilization at this emission frequency(35-40 KHz) than at current frequencies. Furthermore, higher penetration of the ultrasonic wave, higher compression and lower thermal effect are observed.
Most important physiological effects are:
- Cavitation effect on fat tissues causes fat fragmentation and the subsequent diffusion of the lipid matrix that later joins to the intersectial fluids.
- Emulsification of the lipid content favors its metabolic assimilation.
- Emulsificated fluid content is carried through vascular and lymphatic tracts to the liver. Once it is in the liver, it follows the organism’s normal mechanisms.
Radio frequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin.
