Using the BSE System with the Ultra Slim Plus II will give you one of the most powerful RF devices in the market place today.
So why do you want RF in your MedSpa or Clinic?
Radio Frequency (RF) is the number of oscillations (or waves) per second of the electric and magnetic fields within the radio waves portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. In the aesthetic field, these waves are the newest and most promising technology in the treatment of loose and sagging skin and are the most recent non-invasive facial rejuvenation procedure many refer to it as the “natural face-lift”
RF 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 slimmer. 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.
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.
During treatment, a mild heating sensation can be felt over the treatment area. It ends as soon as the device is removed from the skin. During and immediately following treatment, some redness can be seen. It should disappear within an hour or so. A client/patient is advised to avoid contact with the sun, natural or artificial, for many hours following treatment. Sun block should be administered to ensure rays are avoided while walking to and from a location and while driving in an automobile. At BSE we have a pharmaceutical medical grade treatment sunscreen available to our clients through our shopping cart.
While the face seems to be the most desired location for RF treatments, many desire skin tightening on other parts of their bodies. Some of the most advantageous areas for treatment are underarms (or bat wings), abdomen, thighs and buttocks. When fat cells swell within the hypodermis layer, they push the dermis against connective tissue and cause cellulite. The Ultra Slim Plus II works by treating the fat under the skin through Ultrasound Caviation and follows up with RF. These processes are done together to further tighten and smooth the skin and fatty layers; removing the cellulite and slimming the skin immediately.
TriPollar RF treatments have been clinically proven to tighten and re-contour skin, leaving it looking firmer and younger. Anyone treated with TriPollar can expect collagen contraction, with results varying from person to person.
A typical course of treatment for RF consists of three to eight sessions depending on desired results. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes (depending on the area being treated). While the results are immediate, the option of maintenance treatments (once every four to eight weeks) should be considered to prolong the enhancements.
