Skin tightening without surgery or downtime!

The Technology Behind Ultrasonic Body Sculpting

Now you can safely remove fat and tighten skin on your body without the cost, downtime, or pain of surgery! For several years, ultrasound has been safely and effectively utilized in the medical world. For Ultrasonic Body Sculpting, the ultrasound waves have been specifically focused to only target fat cells, or adipocytes, in the subcutaneous layer beneath the skin. “The pulsed acoustic waves of ultrasonic energy converge in a confined focal volume causing a non-thermal, mechanical destruction of fat cells”. The adipocytes are emulsified by the ultrasound frequencies, leaving everything else in the body, nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues, intact.The destroyed fat cells, which are mostly triglycerides, are dispersed into the fluid between the cells and then moved through the vascular and lymphatic systems to the liver where they are metabolized and excreted by the body.

Zerona-fatThe ultrasound is followed by Multipolar Radio Frequency to assist in the metabolism of large fat granules previously ruptured by the first treatment and to tighten the skin where the fat is reduced.

Treatment areas for fat reduction are: upper and lower abdomen, love handles, buttocks, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, and legs.

Skin tightening treatments can be done anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, and chest.

This treatment is designed to reduce those troublesome fat areas that have stopped you having that ideal body shape you’ve always wanted to achieve. Just like liposuction, it is not a cure for obesity. This treatment works best for people who are making a genuine effort to reshape their body and compliments their existing exercise and dietary regimes. Because the fat is being processed out of the body by the lymphatic system, liver and kidneys – drinking plenty of water, eating well, and exercising are a critical part of this treatment.

How does it work?

Simply put, sound waves break down the bonds that form between fat cells. The resulting emulsified byproduct presents as waste material that is expelled through the lymphatic system. These concentrated sound waves, or sonic energy, are directed only at localized treatment areas, and is thus capable of selectively disrupting the subcutaneous fat cells through thousands of microscopic implosions impacting the fat cell membranes. After breakdown of adipose tissue (fat cell membrane), the fat is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where they are enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water-soluble glycerol travels into the circulatory system used for new energy generation whereas the insoluble free fatty acids enter the liver where they are decomposed like any other simple fatty acid.

Ultrasound technology is not new. In fact, it dates back to the 1940s. However, ultrasound for the intent of reducing fat content is a relatively new application of that technology.

Just as light has different applications based on the frequency used – laser, ultra-violet, infra red etc, so does sound. Some examples can be found in microwave ovens, radiology equipment, medical instrument, navigation, agriculture, and even your mobile phone.

Ultrasound refers to frequencies above 20,000 Hz, beyond the range of human hearing, hence its name. Some common uses of sound are:

20 Hz to 20,000 Hz – Acoustic Sound, or normal hearing range;
30,000 Hz to 40,000 Hz – Ultrasound Fat Cavitation;
250,000 Hz to 2,000,000 Hz – Diagnostic equipment, MRI, body scans etc;
1,000,000 to 5,000,000 Hz – High Intensity Focused Ultrasound used for ablating gall stones and tumors;
300,000,000 to 300,000,000,000 Hz – Microwave frequencies.

Multipolar Radio Frequency assists in the metabolism of large fat granules previously ruptured by the ultrasound treatment.

The dermis and subcutaneous layer are heated simultaneously forcing collagen fibers to contract. The contracting fibers pull and tighten the skin, creating an immediate effect. Fibroblasts’ metabolism increases, producing new collagen fibers leaving a long term effect.

Most of the RF energy enters into the deeper dermal layer, causing the dermal layer of skin to thicken, decreasing wrinkle depth, leaving the skin firmer with contour lifted.

The original collagen protein becomes strengthened to increase the new collagen protein as a result of the radio frequency stimulating the skin.
