Radio frequency(RF) using the Ultra Slim Plus II Platinum is the latest technology for anti-aging, skin tightening, toning, and lifting. Treatments cause the 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 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 tighten, more tone and lifted. RF can thus be used to enhance Ultrasound Cavitation or as a stand alone for therapy which is what makes the Ultra Slim Plus II combo unit so versatile. It is being used for cellulite, lifting, toning and for body builders and those with very little fat to reverse the aging process.
In addition to slimming the body, RF technology heats both the dermal and subcutaneous layers of skin. The Ultra Slim Plus II utilizes TriPolar radio frequency, which combines monopolar and bipolar energy in one hand-piece. TriPolar energy is delivered into multiple layers of skin while protecting the surface layer. 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. TriPolar radio frequency, which is used by the Ultra Slim Plus II, focuses the energy with its technological design. When comparing non-ablative (procedures that do not involve the destruction of the outer layer of the skin) techniques, RF energy differs from laser (light) energy treatments in that light energy tends to scatter or absorb into the upper layers of the skin, making it difficult to deliver sufficient heat into the deeper layers without damaging the skin’s surface. While lasers affect collagen in the upper dermis, 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.
