FAQ Technology

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.accent_xml_vs_thermage_vs_purelift

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 new PureGenex PureLift+ leverages Multi-Polar RF, but now also adds 630-650nm red light (generated by ultra-safe LED) to further activate the collagen formation and tightening processes.  This technology works by heating up the inner structures of the skin, the dermis in particular, to approximately 42 degrees, using a treatment head with three or more “poles” emitting waves of radio frequency energy.  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.purelift plus multi polar rf skin tightening face
  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.

PureLift 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!

How Does Ultrasonic Cavitation Work?

This technology works by transmission of ultra-high frequency (40 kHz) sound wave energy into the sub-dermal tissues. This targets the area immediately beneath the treatment head to a consistent depth of 8-10mm. 4d-cavi ultrasonic cavitation inch loss treatments

 

This energy impacts the adipocytes, forming low pressure bubbles between the cells, weakening cell cohesion and rupturing the cell membranes. The sound wave form then pulverises the fat cells, driving out the fat cell contents into the interstitial space, where lymphatic drainage removes them to be used in normal metabolic processes.

Ultrasonic Cavitation is especially effective at breaking down stubborn or hard fat deposits, whilst also promoting a re-organisation of the fat cell structures to deliver smoother and softer feeling skin.

In addition to the standard effects of Ultrasonic Cavitation, the 4D-Cavi technology, unique to the PureLift+, applies a secondary modulation, which is experienced as a light “tapping” sensation.  This stimulates accelerated lymphatic drainage, thereby further enhancing the inch loss results.

How Does BIO Micro-Current Work?

This technology works by generating a bio-electrical response within the treated tissues. This response is triggered as a result of a micro-current field being generated between the treatment poles. This field triggers the following effects within the dermal tissues :-purelift plus bio micro current eyebrow lift treatments

  • Promotes increased metabolic processing to improve the health and vitality of the cells.
  • Generates heat within the tissues, causing existing collagen tissues to shrink, providing an immediate tightening and plumping effect.
  • Old, fibrous collagen is denatured and broken down by the body.
  • Fibroblasts (the cells that create new collagen) are stimulated to create new, fresh, supple collagen.
  • Stimulates improved blood circulation within the micro-vascular tissues around the eyes, improving cell permeability and moisture absorption, making the skin feel smooth and more elastic.
  • Exercises the small muscles around the eyes through micro-triggering of the muscles.

This stimulates strengthening of the muscle fibres resulting in a firmer muscular structure around the eyes. 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.

How Does Photon Therapy Work?

Our skin absorbs light as energy, as our cells are photoreceptive.  By using different light colours the Photon Therapy hand piece of the new PureLift+ encourages many beneficial effects within the skin.purelift plus photon led light therapy

  • Red Light (630-650nm) promotes skin tightening to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, aids collagen promotion, anti-ageing and plumping of the skin
  • Green Light (520-540nm) reduces skin discoloration, aids in the reduction of hyper-pigmentation and dark spots
  • Blue Light (475-485nm) produces the singlet oxygen to destroy acne causing bacteria, reduces inflammation and aids in the treatment of acne
  • Yellow Light (570-580nm) promotes skin rejuvenation, reduces rosacea and redness in the skin, decreases the appearance of blood vessels (capillaries) near the surface of the skin
  • Purple Light (420-430nm) accelerates cell regeneration and renewal
  • Cyan Light (490-500nm) Reduces inflammation in the skin and reduces the appearance of capillaries
  • White Light (Combination of visible spectrum) tightens and tones the skin, reduces inflammation and normalises pigmentation
