Multipolar Radiofrequency

Multipolar RF is essentially electrical energy, which is converted to heat energy when penetrating the skin and fatty tissue. The RF penetrates the skin layers to a predetermined depth in order to selectively heat the target area. The penetration depth is determined by the distance between the poles on the Multipolar Applicator on the device.

In the case of skin rejuvenation and tightening, the skin tissue and the extracellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded in the target area. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblasts (the cells which produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid) thereby accelerating the production of new collagen and elastin fibres.

The contraction of collagen fibres and the regeneration of the collagen and elastin deposits, tighten the skin layers creating smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin.

In the case of body contouring, fat reduction and cellulite treatment, the heat energy is directed deeper into the skin, thereby heating the hypodermis (fat layer) and the dermis directly above it in order to increase the metabolism of the fat cells, increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, strengthen and tighten the skin thereby breaking down fatty deposits, improving the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin on the body.

Monopolar Radiofrequency

In Monopolar RF devices, the poles are located quite far apart from each other usually the “inactive pole” (or grounding pad) is placed at the back of the body, while the “active pole” (which is the applicator used on the target area) is used over the target zone. As a result, the current has no other choice but to traverse through ALL the skin layers after entering the skin, travel through the body to the other pole, and exit there.

This means that with monopolar RF, and depending on some other factors too, we can treat not only the skin surface (epidermis) but also the middle skin layer (dermis – responsible for skin tightening), the deepest skin layer (hypodermis – where our cellulite is formed) and even the subcutaneous fat deposits below the skin itself.

Monopolar RF allows us the ability to go much deeper with our treatments.
