Lipofirm Plus is the perfect marriage between Twintrend and Slimcav creating a versatile platform of both Bipolar, Monopolar Radiofrequency and Cavitation Ultrasound.
The ultrasonic cavitation, also known as aesthetic cavitation, is a relatively new technique that applies a phenomenon known in physics to aesthetics. This phenomenon is called cavitation and is a very smart way to reduce fat, because it is converted into liquid and then is naturally eliminated with urine. Nowadays the ultrasonic cavitation is considered as a treatment alternative to surgical liposuction as a non-invasive procedure with results obtained in short terms.
The 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 machine works with ultrasounds that form bubbles in the tissues where the fat cells are located. The bubbles expand and are immediately compressed afterwards. The temperature increases due to sudden variation in pressure and the bubble implodes. This implosion damages the fat cells, reducing the localised adiposity.
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. It produces 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.
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) system is the most commonly used procedure to stimulate the collagen production and strengthen the skin structure. RF enables skin tightening and improvement of the skin’s appearance painlessly without post-op downtime of classic surgery applications 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 local fibroblasts stimulate 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 only becomes evident slowly 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.
Is The Procedure Safe?
It is a safe procedure that can be applied to anyone, but a detailed consultation should be carried out along with a report of the complete medical history.
Patients with kidney failure, liver failure, carrying a pacemaker or other electronic devices, pregnancy, lactation, hypertriglyceridemia, hypercholesterolemia, should avoid this procedure.
