The Lavatron is a radiofrequency (RF) device. It is able to deliver both monopolar and multipolar RF. It can heat the dermis (the deepest layers of the skin) and hypodermis (the superficial fat layer situated directly beneath the skin).
This increase in temperature causes an increase in cellular metabolism and a reduction in the size of fat cells. It also increases blood circulation, improving the appearance of cellulite on the body as well as general skin function. Heating the dermis also causes existing collagen fibres to contract, resulting in immediate skin tightening. This heat also stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. This creates a long-term tightening effect that is seen in a couple of months as the newly created collagen begins to “bloom”.
