ULTRASONIC 38KHz

Aesthetic Medicine

WHAT ARE

The physical principles of ultrasound wave production were already clear from the early 1900s, exploiting an effect known as piezoelectric, described by Pierre Curie: this effect is produced by acting on materials such as quartz and ceramics. If, in fact, an electric field is applied, for example, on quartz crystals cut in the form of compressed foils, a compression wave of the crystal is generated; reversing the direction will result in an expansion wave, with the production of a series of high frequency mechanical vibrations that are used in medical therapy, generally at an application power of 0.5 to 4W / cmq.

When ultrasound wave encounters a tissue in its path, it loses a portion of energy (attenuation phenomenon), due to a greater extent, of the absorption of vibration by the tissue. In general, the absorption of ultrasound wave by the tissue increases with increasing frequency, so a 1.0 MHz signal would penetrate more deeply than a 3.0 MHz signal, due to the lower attenuation in the tissue.

We will talk about US at low frequency if the frequency goes from 20 Khz to 100 Khz, US of medium frequency with values ​​from 100 to 1000 Khz and high frequency from 1000 Khz to 10000 Khz. A device that produces ultrasound wave is formed by an alternating current generator connected to a head formed by quartz that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy (acoustic vibrations) that is then transmitted to the fabrics.

This transmission takes place in a non-fully elastic environment, whereby encountering resistance and friction, it produces heat. The acoustic vibrations, modifying the balance of the components of the body involved, can modify its physical characteristics, by exerting a micromassage.

Therefore micromechanical, thermal, chemical and microbubble formation effects are created within the tissues. Since the gaseous media obstruct the transmission of ultrasound wave, in applications it will be necessary that a liquid medium (water, gel, etc.) exists between the ultrasound wave wave and skin.

ultrasound wave is a well-established therapy for the treatment of neuritic, arthritic, arthritic and superficial inflammatory forms (abscesses, infiltrates, mastitis) and as we said, it makes use of the ability of ultrasound wave to accelerate the cellular metabolic processes, and cause positive changes in neuromuscular and neurovascular tone.

It is therefore used in Rehabilitative Physiotherapy, and in edema, lymphedema, and lipoedema. The use of ultrasound wave was then extended to other branches of medicine, for example the Aesthetic, in which exploiting the ability to create microbubbles, ultrasound wave act on fat cells increasing the permeability of the membrane, allowing the elimination from the body: so they have those remodeling of some parts of the body on men and women that are an alternative very valid for other types of more invasive interventions.


INDICATIONS

Low frequency ultrasound is used with great success in aesthetics.
Its main indications are:
  • Reduction of localized fat deposits (accumulation of fat on the hips, thighs, arms, waistlines, etc.)
  • Cellulite reduction Reduction of lipomas


CONTRAINDICATIONS

  • coronary insufficiency, haematological disorders (anemia, leucosis, etc.)
  • cardio vascular dysfunctions - serious vessel diseases, thrombophlebitis
  • hepatic or renal failure - epilepsy

  • pregnancy, breastfeeding
  • temperature


BODY AREAS WHERE THE TREATMENT ARE AVAILABLE

  • Arms
  • Abdomen and hips
  • Buttocks

BODY AREAS WHERE THE TREATMENT ARE NOT AVAILABLE

• Axillary recess
• Hands
• Elbow recess
• Neck
• Chest area
• Otherwise
• Popliteal cable
• Groin

• Foot
• Ankle
• Bony protrusions


TREATMENT GUIDELINES

It is good practice, in the presence of small accumulations, to divide the body into equal parts as if it were an A4 sheet and to distribute the maximum treatment time based on the areas to be treated.
In principle we can keep to the principle that for an area of ​​8/10 cm of side, it must correspond about 10 min of work.
If more important locations occur, use the entire maximum time to treat the whole part, shifting the attention to other areas only after reaching an appreciable result.
The ultrasonic wave, at the frequency and power emitted to get the Diathermy, meets various parts of the body with different impedance, this means that at the change of impedance also changes the speed of travel of the wave. When this happens, the so-called stationary waves are generated, which cause a slight whistle to the client's ear.
In case it is perceived in a troublesome way it is suggested to lower the intensity of the treatment for a few minutes and then go back to the one previously set, eventually it is possible to use plugs that absorb part of the wave.
In order to optimize the treatment, small amounts of gel (not saline) are used, with the sole purpose of sliding the handpiece onto the treated part.

WARNINGS
    • Near the kidney, create the fold, direct the handpiece upwards, to avoid sending the sound wave directly to the organ.


Rehabilitative Physiotherapy & Sports Medicine

INTRODUCTION

Mechanical Diathermy is a non-invasive treatment generated through the emission of ultrasonic wave, able to produce a temperature increase at tissue depths of about 3 cm by converting a non-thermal energy source into heat inside the tissues.
The energy created by the passage of the acoustic wave, through the fields of compression and rarefaction, is transformed into heat, through the mechanical friction between the molecules.
The thermal effects of ultrasonic wave can cause:
Greater extensibility of collagen.
Increased nerve conduction speed.
Alteration of local vascular perfusion.
Increased enzymatic activity.
Increases contractile activity of skeletal muscle.
Increased nociceptive threshold.
Therapeutic ultrasonic wave s are clinically used in three forms:
Continuous: for the temperature increase of deep tissues.
Pulsed: for the activation of non-thermal physiological effects.
As a driving agent (phonophoresis) for transdermal delivery of topical drugs.


ACTION MECHANISM

Ultrasonic wave is non-ionizing radiation of a mechanical nature; unlike radiofrequencies and microwaves, with which specific regions of the electromagnetic spectrum are identified, they are a form of mechanical energy and therefore to be able to propagate, they need an elastic medium such as plasma or liquids (Humphrey, 2007).
They extend from frequencies above 20 kHz, the upper limit of audibility for the human ear, up to the frequencies of a few hundred MHz and, around 1 GHz, they give way to the so-called hypersonic regime.
The ultrasounds, through the tissues, determine traditionally separate effects in thermal and non-thermal (Miller, 1996); non-thermal substances mainly concern cavitation. Thermal effects typically occur for continuous wave exposures, while non-thermal effects for pulsed wave exposures (Milowska, 2007).
The two effects are not actually separable, ie the presence of only one type of effect can not be assumed, except in the case of lithotripsy, in which the induced effect is the mechanical one. For all other situations, it is good to assume that non-thermal effects are always accompanied by heat development (Baker, 2001).


INDICATIONS OF USE

The clinical indications of mechanical diathermy concern above all the usefulness of heating of deep tissues. The heating of collagen increases its extensibility, altering its tertiary molecular bond.
The recognized therapeutic effects are:
  • Analgesic: due to the action of heat and also to a direct action of ultrasound on sensitive nerve endings.
  • Fibrolytic action: the oscillations of the particles of the tissues, produced by the ultrasounds, determine the disruption of the collagen fibers of the fibrous tissues.
  • Trophy effect: vasodilation, which follows the thermal elevation, facilitates the removal of catabolites and sends nutrients and oxygen into the tissues; in this way the ultrasounds improve the trophism of the tissues, facilitate the repair of tissue damage and accelerate the resolution of inflammatory processes.

Mechanical Diathermy is a useful aid for the sectors:
  • Aesthetic Doctor
  • dermatological
  • lymphology
  • physiotherapy
  • Sports Medicine


CONTRAINDICATIONS

Ultrasonic wave should not be used on:
  • Cardiac area.
  • On the cephalic region and on specialized tissues (fertile metaphysis, testis, ovary).
Special precautions must be taken in the following conditions:
  • When applications are performed on the rachis of patients with laminectomy outcomes, for possible damage to the spinal cord.
  • It is possible to expose areas equipped with metal implants to ultrasound, but only if you are sure that they are only made of metal.
Ultrasonic wave should also never be applied in the presence of:
  • High turnover osteoporosis.
  • Metal fragments.
  • Joint prostheses.
  • Varicose veins.
  • Phlebitis and thrombophlebitis.
  • Pacemaker.
  • Obliterative arteriopathy.
  • Hemorrhages, menstruation.
  • Neoplastic fabrics and surrounding areas.
  • Tuberculosis.
Ultrasounds should also never be used on:
  • Pregnant woman.
  • Subjects undergoing growth (children, adolescents).
  • Patients who are clearly incapable of clearly communicating any painful sensation to the therapist.


STANDARD MODES OF TREATMENT

The basic protocol for mechanical diathermy is based on 4 steps:
  • Application of a gel does not salt on the part to be treated.
  • Pass the handpiece on the part with lenses and circular along the run of the muscle fibers. The duration depends on the area treated and the protocol of use.
  • Removal of the gel by cleaning and application of specific creams.
  • Drain the treated part with discharge to the nearest lymphatic ganglion.

SHOCK WAVE

Beauty

Among the various anti-cellulite treatments, acoustic wave therapy is an innovative non-invasive and painless treatment. Acoustic waves are used with a high success rate for many medical therapies, where mechanical energy-pressure pulses are applied to the superficial and deep tissues.

In medicine, the shockwaves used today are characterized by pressure pulses with extremely short durations, capable of producing an increase in vascularization and metabolic processes. They are held responsible for various healing processes and tissue regeneration. With the aid of a special handpiece, acoustic waves are now used successfully for the treatment of tissue disorders.

This technology is able to change the pressure on the tissue, the molecules start to oscillate, the metabolism is activated and the lymphatic system is stimulated. Thanks to the accelerated blood and lymphatic circulation, the absorption of fats is stimulated, an ideal condition for the synthesis of collagen: the elastic fibers reorganize and the skin tonicity improves significantly and visibly, an excellent starting point for stimulating the skin continues over time.

The areas to be treated are first of all thighs, buttocks, abdomen and the upper part of the arm. A positive side effect observed during acoustic wave treatments is that the skin in the treated area, after treatment, is much smoother and more compact than the surrounding untreated areas.

The success of the anti-cellulite therapy is clearly visible and measurable even after only 4 - 6 sessions, that is after 2 - 4 weeks. Today acoustic waves are the choice of sure success against the tissue disorders adopted in numerous centers all over the world. In medicine, acoustic waves are used with great success in the treatment of urinary stones and in orthopedic and physiotherapeutic treatments.

The MSW was therefore born on the basis of these previous observations and experiences; today it is possible to use acoustic energy to stimulate the areas of the body affected by imperfections of cellulite and to firm up the connective tissue permanently. During the treatment of MSW thanks to the particular constructive technologies of the applicators used, the acoustic waves are applied without pain to the customer. The acoustic waves are directed towards the area affected by various disorders where they release and release their energy to the adipose tissue and therefore are able to increase the permeability of the cell membrane. The circulatory system increases the flow of blood and the lymphatic system. The connective tissue relaxes and becomes more elastic.

The production of collagen is stimulated, which favors the firming of the dermis and the epidermis. The best results are obtained with the fibrous tissue, which forms the unsightly "mattress skin" acting only on the localized fat.

The effects of shock waves include numerous effects:
  • improve the spraying of the subcutaneous tissue
  • drain the stasis
  • stimulate district lipolysis
  • train fibrotic retractions - activate cell repair processes
  • reduction of palpation pain
  • volume reduction

APPLICATION TIPS

Before proceeding with the application, thoroughly clean the skin and make sure that there are no traces of detergents or other products. Apply the specific product or neutral gel on the part to be treated.

The treatment handpiece must be applied perpendicular to the area to be treated, and let it flow slowly in circular motions, collecting the product from time to time.

In principle we can say that for an area must correspond to c.a 20 minutes of work.

In case it is perceived in a troublesome way it is suggested to lower the intensity of the treatment for a few minutes and then go back to the one previously set, eventually it is possible to use plugs that absorb part of the wave.

In order to optimize the treatment, small amounts of gel (not saline) are used, with the sole purpose of sliding the handpiece onto the treated part.

THERMAL RADIOFREQUENCY

Beauty

WHAT'S THIS'
Radiofrequency treatment consists in the passage of high frequency electromagnetic energy through the skin, generating the formation of endogenous heat. In Physiotherapy Medicine it is used for the treatment of muscular contusions and distractions, cervico-brachialgia, epicondylitis, fibromyositis, tenosynovitis.
In Aesthetic Medicine the phenomenon of the consequent natural increase in the production of collagen in the treated area is exploited. Thus radiofrequency is mainly applied for the treatment of wrinkles, cutaneous relaxation, blemishes and localized adiposity. Identified and designed the area to be treated, it is operated by a handpiece, which raises the temperature of the area undergoing treatment, thus obtaining a "contraction" of the collagen fibers, with a new production of the same, allowing an anti-aging action and a skin remodeling .
Electromagnetic waves penetrate exposed tissues and produce heat as a result of energy absorption. The depth of penetration into the tissue depends on the frequency of the field and is greater at the lower frequencies. Most of the effects that can occur as a result of exposures can be explained as a response to induced heating, which in turn gives rise to an increase in tissue temperature.
Warming induced in body tissues can cause various physiological responses and responses related to thermoregulation.


INDICATIONS

  • Cutaneous laxity and tissue relaxation of the face and body
  • antibacterial action
  • reduction of the volume of the sebaceous glands)
  • hypertrophic and post-acne scars
  • stretch marks, for the best dermal trophism and tissue regeneration
  • adjuvant for ultrasound treatments for adiposity and cellulite

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR TREATMENT

Before proceeding with the application, thoroughly clean the skin and make sure that there are no traces of detergents or other products. Apply neutral cream to the part to be treated

Choose the electrode of the chosen handpiece (face or body according to the area to be treated)

The electrode of the handpiece must be placed perpendicular to the area to be treated and moved slowly with circular or linear movements, collecting the cream from time to time.

To avoid overheating the treatment area it is necessary to move the handpiece with slow and uniform movement, with circular movements, forward and backward or with movements to form an "eight" design, taking care not to let it stop.

In case it is perceived in a troublesome way, it is suggested to lower the intensity of the treatment for a few minutes and then return to the one previously set.


AESTHETIC MEDICINE, REHABILITATION PHYSIOTHERAPY & SPORT MEDICINE

INTRODUCTION

Electromagnetic diathermy is a non-invasive treatment that uses an electric field, able to produce a temperature increase of the tissues through the conversion of an electromagnetic energy source into heat.

The generated heat is responsible for a series of biological actions that result in well-defined therapeutic effects, such as:
> Activation of metabolism.
> Initial vasoconstriction and constant vasodilation.
> Sweating (thermal effect).
> Muscle release.
> Modification of the physical properties of the fibrotic tissue.
> Increased cardiac activity and pulmonary hyper-ventilation.
> Increased consumption of O2 and elimination of CO2.

Electromagnetic diathermy is clinically used in four forms:
> Analgesic and algo-sedative action.
> Decontracting action.
> Tactile metabolism stimulating action.
> Vasomotor action.


ACTION MECHANISM

Diathermy is a form of physical-instrumental therapy that reactivates the normal physiological processes of tissue metabolism, transferring energy by applying the physical principle of the condenser to the biological field, obtaining a technology that transfers biocompatible energy and allows the tissues to be stressed from the inside, therefore without unnecessary dissipation of energy.
The homogeneous increase in depth of the temperature generated by the electrode does not cause overheating of the skin.
The structures and the tissues are treated through a kit complete with electrodes of different sizes allowing to apply the therapy in depth and effectively on any osteo-my-articular structure of the human body.

Displacement currents produce three types of effects:
  • Biochemical: which rebalances the enzymatic disorder of adiposity and accelerates the ultra-structural metabolism of cells by recalling oxygen-rich blood, speeding up the flow and facilitating the lymphatic drainage of peripheral areas not affected by cellulite.
  • Thermal: for the joule effect produced by the displacement currents, it induces a deep and homogeneously diffused endothermic heating.
  • Mechanical: increasing the flow rate of fluids, drains the emo-lymphatic stasis and tones the vascular walls.
All these three effects reinforce each other.
Therefore, the action of diathermy therapy involves all the tissues both in a deep and homogeneous way.
Deep action: in it the energy associated with the "diathermic" field does not undergo any dissipation in the transfer to the tissue involved in the treatment.
Homogeneous action: the temperature increase is generated by the displacement currents whose intensity is directly connected to the attraction and / or repulsion force exerted by the active electrode which is constant because determined at the level of the energy generator.


INDICATIONS OF USE

The main effects of biostimulation are:
  • Tissue hyperemia by dilatation and activation of capillary micro-circulation.
  • Tissue hyper-oxygenation with reduction of inflammatory processes.
  • Veno-lymphatic drainage with reduction of edema and congestive stasis.
  • Removal of tissue catabolites.
  • Pain reduction for desensitization of peripheral terminations and increase of endorphins.
  • Decontracting and muscle relaxant action.


CONTRAINDICATIONS

Electromagnetic diathermy should not be used on:
  • Specialized tissues (fertile metaphysis, testis, ovary).
Special precautions must be taken in the following conditions:
  • When applying on mucous membranes.
  • In the presence of Varicose Veins.
Furthermore, Electromagnetic Diathermy should never be applied in the presence of:
  • Pacemaker.
  • Epilepsy.
  • Neoplasms.
Furthermore, Electromagnetic Diathermy should never be used on:
  • Pregnant woman.
  • Patients who are clearly incapable of clearly communicating any painful sensation to the therapist.


STANDARD TREATMENT MODES

The basic protocol for Electromagnetic Diathermy is based essentially on 3 steps:
  • Apply a sliding cream on the part to be treated.
  • Pass the handpiece on the part with slow and circular movements along the course of the muscle fibers. The duration depends on the area and the protocol of use.
  • Remove the residual cream.

FRAXEL

Beauty, Aesthetic Medicine, Rehabilitative Physiotherapy & Sports Medicine

INTRODUCTION
Fraxel, is a non-invasive treatment that uses an electric field, which exploits the ability of the skin to conduct electrons, without increasing the heat of the skin, acting in a completely athermic.

The generated heat is responsible for a series of biological actions that result in well-defined therapeutic effects, such as:
  • Ionic rebalance
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Alkalization of the fabric
Fraxel is clinically used in four forms:
  • Analgesic and algo-sedative action.
  • Decontracting action.
  • Tissue metabolism stimulating action.
  • Vasomotor action.
New type of athermic fractional (non-ablative) resistive emission.

Thanks to the particular characteristics of the emission it is possible to stimulate particular membrane receptors, voltage dependent, able to stimulate a whole series of anti-inflammatory responses and favoring drainage.

Moreover, thanks to the specific parameters and the type of emission, it is very penetrating in the fabrics, evoking responses even in depth, without generating heat.

Type of treatment studied for the inflammatory phases of the skin or to favor the draining action acting directly on the lymphatic discharges before a lymphatic massage or pressure therapy or other draining technique.

This action works by stimulating the voltage gate channels inside the cells, to increase the cellular protein synthesis, for a more rapid and painless rehabilitation.

The mechanism of action in acute damage is based on the increase in cellular permeability and exchanges with the extracellular environment, thus allowing a considerable antiedema and anti-inflammatory action.

It can therefore be used for traumatic edema from post-surgical interventions and swollen tissues and hematomas.

The overall result of this action provides remarkably fast anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving abilities on joint surfaces, tendons and muscle cells.


The main effects of Fraxel are:

  • Tissue hyperoxygenation with reduction of inflammatory processes.
  • Veno-lymphatic drainage with reduction of edema and congestive stasis.
  • Removal of tissue catabolites.
    Pain reduction for desensitization of peripheral terminations and increase of endorphins.
  • Decontracting and muscle relaxant action.


CONTRAINDICATIONS

Fraxel should not be used on:
  • Specialized tissues (fertile metaphysis, testis, ovary).

Special precautions must be taken in the following conditions:
  • When applying on mucous membranes.
  • In the presence of Varicose Veins.
Fraxel also must never be applied in the presence of:
  • Pacemaker.
  • Epilepsy.
  • Neoplasms.
Fraxel also should never be used on:
  • Pregnant woman.
  • Patients who are clearly incapable of clearly communicating any painful sensation to the therapist.

TRANSDERMIC VEHICULATION

Beauty, Aesthetic Medicine, Rehabilitative Physiotherapy & Sports Medicine

INTRODUCTION
Transdermal delivery is a non-invasive treatment, which involves the absorption of active ingredients through the skin.
This method has been used for years and the proposals found on the market range from simple moisturizers, to medicated gels, to pharmacological patches.
It is a solution for many forms of imperfections, pathologies, painful inflammatory states etc.
To obtain the desired results, the applications must be repeated and the quantity of active principle used is proportional to the time of use of the substance.
It is a method to nourish the cell of the substances it needs and represents a valid and indispensable route of administration.
The transdermal delivery technique adopted consists of "multiple microperforation of the skin with a roller equipped with needles".
Needling is a microinvasive anti-aging technique, quick, almost painless, with a very short recovery time and lasting over time: it is part of the "revitalization" or "biostimulation" method of the skin and consists, in fact, in a microperforation of the facial skin or of various body regions performed with a particular roller whose purpose is to naturally stimulate the production of elastic fibers and collagen, essential elements in giving and maintaining tone and support to the skin.
In the United States speack about of "Collagen Induction Therapy": this technique activates a series of repair mechanisms that lead to the production of different cellular and tissue "growth factors", with the consequent production of natural collagen.

ACTION MECHANISM
Transdermal delivery acts on the skin resulting in a transient increase in tissue permeability.
The active ingredients conveyed reach the cellular receptors in the pre-established dosage and therefore therapeutically more effective. The therapeutic action is direct, without mediating the bloodstream.
This occurs when a trans-membrane potential is generated in a cell via an electrical impulse; the lipid double layer of the cell is subjected to a temporary re-arrangement, with the formation of aqueous channels in the cell membrane called electropores.
Such electrophores determine the passage of molecules that otherwise would never pass the stratum corneum.

With Transdermal Delivery we can carry a large quantity of substances, both low and high molecular weight, such as:
  • C vitamin
  • glycosaminoglycans
  • Carnitine
  • Hyaluronic acid


USE INDICATIONS

The clinical indications of transdermal vehiculation concern above all the possibility of vehicular Drugs and Active Principles also with a great molecular weight that are not conveyed by simple friction of the product.
There are no therapeutic effects recognized by the methodology other than those given by the powers of the substance conveyed.
The elective indications for this technique are:
  • Acne / Acne scars.
  • Stretch marks.
  • Reduction of localized Inflammatory states.
  • Pain Treatment.


CONTRAINDICATIONS

Transdermal Delivery should not be used on:
  • Specialized tissues (fertile metaphysis, testis, ovary).
Special precautions must be taken in the following conditions:
  • When applying on mucous membranes.
  • In the presence of Varicose Veins.
Furthermore, Transdermal Delivery must never be applied in the presence of:
  • Pacemaker.
  • Epilepsy.
  • Neoplasms.
Transdermal Delivery, should never be used on:
  • Pregnant woman.
  • Patients who are clearly incapable of clearly communicating any painful sensation to the therapist.


STANDARD TREATMENT MODES

The basic protocol for transdermal delivery is based essentially on 5 steps:
  • Cleansing of the skin to eliminate residues of makeup and smog.
  • Application of a lotion able to normalize skin pH.
  • Application of a gel containing all the active ingredients that the plastic dermatologist chooses to convey (vitamins, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, mesotherapy, lipolytic drugs ...).
  • Gel massage, with variable duration depending on the area and on the use protocol.
  • Gel removal by cleaning and applying specific creams.

MICROCURRENTS

Beauty, Aesthetic Medicine

WHAT ARE
The use of microcurrent in electrostimulation is increasingly growing. Unlike conventional electrostimulation therapies, which use currents with intensity of the order of milliamps (mA), the microcurrent uses a lower intensity current (microampere μA).

This slight current is below the threshold of man's pain and therefore is not perceived by the patient. This new type of electrostimulation uses a light current that offers an extraordinary therapeutic effect, with a noticeable difference compared to conventional products whose stimulation is often perceived by the patient in an unpleasant and annoying way.

In the use of micro currents in medicine, many clinical effects have been recognized and studied, the results described above demonstrate that MC therapy is remarkably effective in the treatment of acute and chronic pain, promotes regeneration of damaged tissues, heals wounds, scars and bone fracture.

The treatment of microcurrents through the use of handpieces has shown unprecedented efficacy compared to other forms of medical-aesthetic intervention.

Non-invasive treatments of microcurrents are in fact useful at the cellular level, encouraging tissue stimulation, increasing the flow of endogenous current to allow the damaged tissue to regain its capacity. They are shown to be effective in stimulating connective tissue with collagen and elastic fibers, with skin distension and disappearance of the orange peel effect.

Several studies have shown that microcurrent stimulation increases the generation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) of at least 500%. Microcurrent has also been shown to promote amino acid transport and protein synthesis in the treated area up to 30-40% more than in control groups. A 300% increase in capillary perfusion and capillary proliferation was recorded by performing repeated direct current stimulations.

In vitro studies have also shown that the direct current applied to physiological intensity pushes the fibroblasts to orient themselves along the direction of the current flow and move in the direction of the negative electrode. The fibroblasts help to mediate the healing process thanks to their receptors of endogenous growth factors.

An increasing number of research demonstrates the effectiveness of Microcurrents in the treatment of imperfections for the following advantages:

  • it is non-invasive and works at the cellular level to promote healing, imitating the bioelectricity of the body.
  • increases the transport of nutrients in damaged tissues and elimination of waste.
  • increases the flow of endogenous current to allow the traumatized tissue to regain its capacity.
  • continues and initiates chemical and electrical reactions.
  • supplies of ATP, allowing a greater transport of amino acids and protein synthesis.
  • increases the passage of proteins to the lymphatic system.
  • increases the number of growth factor receptors, causing a greater production of collagen.
In the aesthetic field the M.C. they are mainly used for the concept of speeding up tissue regeneration,
increase in ATP and collagen production.
The M.C. medium-frequency are used for their ability to increase the synthesis of collagen and the permeability of skin tissues to cosmetics and thus improve the penetration of the active ingredients contained and prepare the tissue for the specific treatment.
Unlike an electroporation, the medium-frequency M. C. succeeds in obtaining the delivery of the product without the contraindication of discomfort typical of the electroporation itself, since as previously said it works below the pain threshold of the human being.
The medium-frequency microcurrents for their characteristics are the ideal complement of radiofrequency since they have a more external action than radiofrequency thus resulting in a visual result of greater impact from the first treatment that in subsequent treatments will be enhanced by the effect of radiofrequency .

Microcurrents have a wide range of applications tested in the medical field by muscle rehabilitation, macular degeneration and wound healing.
The use of microcurrents began in the United States in the 1960s, where patients suffering from post-stroke and Bell's palsy were treated.
The system is based on the re-education process of my-filaments stimulating them with small amounts of electricity; it reflects the same natural current of the body and works in harmony with the body's electrical system.
These impulses trigger a chemical reaction at the cellular level, increasing the effectiveness of using ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a protein that is called the energy of life.

ACTION MECHANISM

Numerous clinical studies support the concept of variation of cutaneous impedance in certain epidermal areas, corresponding to areas of active pain, projected or developed in their surroundings.
It is shown that skin resistance is an excellent method for objectively identifying these areas, as well as for identifying various trigger-points, comparing them to the surrounding areas.
These areas are an expression of pathologies or dysfunctions of underlying tissues or anatomically linked to these skin areas, and are linked to alterations in the corresponding neurological and neurovegetative information.
The results show that even commercial electromedical products can be useful in locating such electro-physiologically altered areas.
Microcurrents are intended to restore the normal electrophysiological valence of these skin areas, introducing a corrective input to the connected somatic dysfunction.


INDICATIONS OF USE

The clinical indications of Microcurrents mainly concern the usefulness in the treatment of painful neuropathic disorders.

The recognized therapeutic effects are:
Localized analgesia
Release of endorphins and regulatory neuro-peptides
Localized Hyperemia

The elective indications for this technique are:
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation.
  • Post-traumatic rehabilitation.
  • Painful osteo-my-articular syndromes.
  • Chronic pains.
  • Neuropathic pain.
  • Acute post-operative pain.
  • Peripheral peripheral poly-neuropathies.
  • Trigeminal neuralgia.
  • Neuralgic outcomes of hernias of the pulpy nucleus - Cervical spondylosis.
  • Painful outcomes from a narrow congenital / acquired vertebral canal.
  • Pathologies of acquired and iatrogenic plexuses.
  • Neuritis.
  • Compression syndrome in the thoracic strait (Thoracic Outlet syndrome).
  • Neuralgic outcomes of Neurofibromatosis.
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - Reflex Algodistrophie.


CONTRAINDICATIONS

Microcurrents should not be used on:
  • Mucous membranes.
  • Open wounds.
  • Wounds.
  • Also mycotic skin infections.
Special attention must be taken:
  • In the presence of skin changes.
  • In patients with changes in skin sensitivity.
Furthermore, Microcurrents must never be applied in the presence of:
  • Pacemaker.
  • Epilepsy.
  • Neoplasms.
Microcurrents should also never be used on:
  • Pregnant women.
  • Patients who are clearly incapable of clearly communicating any painful ensation to the therapist.


STANDARD TREATMENT MODES

The basic protocol for treatment is based essentially on 6 steps:
  • Application of the electrode on cleansed skin.
  • Select the appropriate program.
  • Set the appropriate current intensity.
  • Perform slow movements on the skin in search of areas with impaired impedance.
  • Positioning of the electrode on all the areas to be treated.
  • Mobilization of the segment (only for dynamic treatments).


TYPES OF TREATMENT

  • Prostaglandin pain
  • Chronic acidotic pain
  • Neuropathies Application of the electrode on cleansed skin.
