How does It Work ?
Tri Polar electrodes are used to deliver high frequency electrical current to the skin and subcutaneous layers. The unique TriPolar configuration and associated control software enables accurate control of the energy and the depth of its delivery. This enables the most efficient and powerfull tissue treatment of any RF technology in the market.
Physiology and Subcutaneous fat -The hyperdermis or subcutaneous fat layer is made up of the clustering of fat cells called adipose tissue. At room temparture, these fat cells contain single droplets of stored fat in the form of liquid fat. Of a single fat cell 95% of it is fat in volume.
Andipose tissue collectively makes up a large scattered organ that is metabolically very active, which is primarily engaged in the uptake and release of fat. The release of fact can then be made available as energy to cells throughout the rest of the body.
Temparture And Its Effect on Fat Release
It is well known in chemistry that reaction rate can be increased significantly by increasing the temparture of the reaction. Therefore, increasing the temparture in the adipose tissue, increase the rate of release FFA. For example tempartures below 36 C slow reaction rates and tempartures above 36 C increase reaction rates in a more or less linear fashion.
Treatment of Cellulite and Skin Tightening and Firming
We have to create conditions where fat cells in the desired treatment area (i.e. tummy, buttocks,”love handles” double chin etc.) release their liquid fat thus shrinking in size.
In order to deal with the root of the problem, we have to selectively raise the temparture of the fat cells in the treatment for a prolonged time, in both the dermis and subcutaneous fat layers of the skin.
This results in shrinkage of ALL treated fat cells and an increase of the blood circulation through the tiny capillaries supplying the fat cells which in turn increase oxygen supply to that area further increasing local fat cells metabolism and helping the lympathic system to mobilize waste and toxins from the treatment area.
Fat reduction by Selective Electro-heating of Fat
In order to selectively raise the temperature in the necessary areas, high frequency electrical currents are transmitted to all skin layers via the TriPolar Electrode configuaration. These skin layers in which the currents travel act as resistors in a series, the fat layer having significantly higher electrical resistance Than the other layers . Therefore, when the current passes through the skin layers the areas with the greater electrical resistance (fat cells) are heated much more than the surrounding tissue. Therefore, by selectively heating the fat cells it increases the metabolism and forcing them to release FFA thereby shrinking in size and achieving the desired aesthetic results.
Summary of the Benefits of Tri Polar Technology
This remarkable technology selectively heats the fat cells under the skin without adversely effecting surrounding tissues. Simultaneously heating deep and shallow areas of fat, doing so by combining this dual effect of uni-polar RF and Bi-polar RF in one applicator. Moreever, unlike conventional systems, this patented technology eliminates the need for skin cooling thus enhancing treatment efficiency – resulting in less treatment sessions and less fat.
