FAQ Technology

What is the new "Parallel Treatment" functionality?

Put simply, the most exciting development in the non-invasive inch loss and aesthetics industry for 2014!

The PureGenesis raised the bar with it’s revolutionary design, bringing together multiple complimentary technologies into one platform for the first time.  We’ve now taken the next logical step to further increasing the profit potential delivered by this amazing machine; “Parallel Treatments”!

You can now perform Laser Lipo and Ultrasonic Cavitation treatments simultaneously, dramatically shortening the Accelerated Laser Lipo Inch Loss treatments and combined protocols such as the “Bottom Lift” and “Cellulite Reduction” treatments.

Also, you can provide Laser Lipo and Skin Tightening RF treatments simultaneously, enabling an unprecedented level of client throughput and profit potential from a single platform.

Previously to deliver these treatments together you would need separate machines, with all the expense and waste that incurs.  Now, the PureGenesis platform from PureGenex delivers this capability in a single, multi-function platform!

Is PureGenesis a skin tightening machine?

Comparing Strawberry Laser Lipo and i-lipo with PureGenesisYes, but it is also so much more.  The PureGenesis combines powerful Laser Lipolysis, Ultrasonic Cavitation, RF (Radio Frequency) and Vacuum Massage technologies into a single, compact and affordable platform.  This enables a broad range of highly effective, high demand and profitable therapies that enable you to outperform your competitors.

How Does Laser Lipolysis Work?
  1. The PureGenesis device emits low level laser (LLL) energy at a wavelength of approximately 640 – 650nM, which penetrates the skin to a depth of approximately 8-9mm. This is just deep enough to reach the subcutaneous fat layer.
  2. The membranes (cell walls) of the fat cells (known as “Adipocytes”) are disrupted and develop tiny pores (holes) releasing the contents into the space between the fat cells (the “interstitial space”).
  3. The contents of the fat cells (Fatty Acids, Triglycerides and water) to spill out from the porous cell membranes and are released into the interstitial space. This mechanism of action is not “liquefaction of fat”, it is the instant emptying out of the cells rather than the destruction of them. (referred to as lypolysis).
  4. The change in size of the adipocytes generates inch loss, but does not affect the neighbouring structures such as skin, blood vessels, and peripheral nerves.
  5. Laser Lipolysis, Smart Lipo and i-Lipo all work in a similar way to each using Lasers to break down the fat cells using non invasive techniques
What is "Laser Lipolysis"?

Laser Lipolysis is the correct technical term for the breaking down of fat cell contents and their removal using Laser light energy. This is often referred to by the popular acronym “Laser Lipo”. The term “Laser Lipo” has been trademarked by Laser Lipo Limited. We use the correct technical term “Laser Lipolysis” in order to avoid any confusion. PureGenex will always use the correct terminology, rather than abbreviated forms and recommends all PureGenex approved clinics to do so.

How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?
  1. The PureGenesis device emits ultrasonic (over 40kHz) sound waves. This causes low pressure bubbles to form within the adipocytes.
  2. The low pressure bubbles burst rupturing the fat cell membrane and causing the contents of the fat cells (Fatty Acids, Triglycerides and water) to spill out into the interstitial space. This action is known as “Cavitation”.
  3. The cavitation process is particularly effective when used in conjunction with Laser Lipolysis, whereby the adipocyte cell membranes have already been made porous.
  4. This does not affect the neighbouring structures such as skin, blood vessels, and peripheral nerves.
How Does Multi-Polar RF Skin Tightening Work?

PureGenex have applied the latest advancement in non-invasive aesthetic technology to bring you all the benefits of older Mono-polar and bi-polar RF treatments (such as Thermage and Accent RF), but in a much more targeted manner using Multi-Polar RF technology.

This is achieved through the use of three or more “poles” to deliver the RF energy in a targeted controlled pattern to the dermal tissues directly beneath the treatment probes.

Unlike older mono-polar and bi-polar technologies, such as Accent and Thermage, which are unable to accurately target the treatment area, the PureGenex PureGenesis leverages Multi-Polar RF. This technology works by heating up the skin, the dermis in particular, to approximately 42 degrees, using a treatment head with three or more “poles” emitting RF waves. This targets the area immediately beneath the treatment head to a consistent depth of up to 8 mm, triggering three specific reactions :-

  1. Existing collagen tissues shrink, providing an immediate tightening and plumping effect.
  2. Old, fibrous collagen is denatured and broken down by the body.
  3. Fibroblasts (the cells that create new collagen) are stimulated to create new, fresh, supple collagen.

The laying down of fresh, new collagen fibres results in skin remodelling, taking place over 3-6 months and lasting up to two years, although “top up” treatments every 6-9 months can prolong this effect. Some people only have issues with skin laxity, e.g. the face or on the abdomen after childbirth or weight loss, and not always with fatty tissue excess.

RF skin tightening before

RF Skin tightening gives immediate lifting and tightening effects as well as longer lasting tightening as new collagen is produced.

Loose skin due to weight loss or ageing of the supporting tissues appears wrinkled and lifeless. Old, fibrous and dis-organised collagen fibres are unable to support the skin.

Multi-Polar RF Treatment

RF skin tightening duringA cooling gel is applied to the treatment area, then the Multi-polar Radio Frequency (RF) treatment commences. The Multi-Polar RF technology generates heat in the subcutaneous layer, causing the existing active collagen to contract, delivering immediately tighter feeling skin.

The RF treatment also selectively denatures (breaks down) the old, inflexible collagen and stimulates the re-growth of fresh, healthy and flexible collagen fibres. With successive treatments, this cumulative effect will deliver long lasting results!

End Result

RF skin tightening afterThe volume of collagen increases in a more organised structure. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst also providing tighter, plumper firmer feeling skin.
