Radio Frequemcy is indicated for:
• Sagging skin
• Acne sequelae
There are three kinds of frequencies available with the apparatus (640KHz, 1200KHz and 2400KHz), operating according to the depth of the tissue to be treated. It offers four types of applicators (bipolar concentric field, bipolar dispersed field, longitudinal bipolar field and tripolar), to suit different areas of the body and face with agility and security in heating, thus shortening the session. All Hertix programming is done in the applicator itself, which is lightweight, thereby facilitating routine work and preventing wear and tear for the practitioner. The graphical interface provides a high-definition LCD screen and automatic control coupling, which minimizes hot spots while engaging and disengaging the applicator.
The goal of treatment is to increase tissue temperature, reaching a local temperature of 40 ° C to 43 ° C, which triggers a sequence of physiological reactions: tissue heating induces the appearance of local vasodilatation and stimulates the formation of new collagen (neocollagenesis). During application, the heat generated must be monitored according to the patient’s reports, and measured by a thermometer that comes with the equipment. During application, the heat generated must be monitored according to the patient’s reports, and measured by a thermometer that comes with the equipment. Thus, the provider monitors the temperature rise until the optimum temperature is reached. It is used for five to ten minutes of application per region, so the total time of application depends on the needs of the patient. In a few sessions, the results are already visible, with varying intervals of application with each condition being treated. The treatment is painless, non invasive and non-ablative, which means the patient’s daily routine is not altered. This treatment can be performed at any time of year, for any patient’s prototype. The procedure is accompanied by feelings of intense heat and moderate erythema, which persist for several hours.
The endogenous tissue heating is achieved through the constructive characteristics of each type of electrode applicator, where the flow of high frequency electric current in the local tissue causes the temperature to+D310 rise by the Joule effect (selective tissue heating). As a result, the collagen fibers contract, increasing the synthesis of new collagen (progressive neocollagenesis). Moreover, there is an increase in blood supply and vascularity in the area, promoting decompression of treated tissues. This explains the effects of radio-frequency current flow on cellulites, fibrosis, tissue adhesions and flaccid skin.
