Medic Contour NIR
What is it
A modern, safe, highly effective method, combining a patented system based on the use of ultrasonic waves and the NIR (near infrared) technology based on the action of near infrared.
Ultrasonic waves destroy fat cells without increasing the temperature of the skin, with immediate effect. On the other hand, energy radiation, known as infrared, by increasing the temperature of tissues, stimulates and creates new collagen fibers responsible for skin elasticity and hydration. It happens as a result of increasing the kinetic energy of tissue particles. The thermal effect resulting from the action of NIR causes local tissue hyperemia, which reduces muscle tension and accelerates metabolism. Infrared has properties that help improve the condition of the skin in all areas of the body.
Removal of excess body fat, body contouring, cellulite reduction as well as firming and smoothing the skin. The treatments are intended for all skin types, including vascular and discolored skin.
How it works
In the first stage, infrared radiation (IR) in the close range allows the rays to penetrate the skin depending on the wavelength. The shorter the waves, the deeper they penetrate the skin. The temperature of the tissues increases, which stimulates and creates new collagen fibers responsible for the elasticity and hydration of the skin. It happens as a result of increasing the kinetic energy of tissue particles. The thermal effect causes local tissue hyperemia, reduces muscle tension and accelerates metabolism.
In the second stage, ultrasound waves, after the camera head is applied, propagate perpendicularly into the skin. The heads are of different sizes depending on the area of the body treated. The effect of waves is the concentration of energy at a specific depth of the skin, without disturbing its external structures, with a cooling effect combined with mechanical micromassage. There is an increase in the permeability of cell membranes and an improvement in blood and lymph flow. Concentrated ultrasound energy stimulates skin cells to produce collagen. The connections of fat cells, whose metabolic products are excreted from the body in the physiological process of metabolism, are broken down. The depth of penetration of ultrasound depends on appropriately selected frequencies and power.
The non-invasive method is based on the use of special heads that are applied to the skin after applying the gel. In the first stage, infrared radiation gives a delicate thermal effect, in the second stage, using ultrasound waves, we obtain a cooling effect and mechanical micro-massage. The emitted waves penetrate deep into the tissues. The depth of action is regulated by appropriately selected frequencies. The duration of the procedure is from 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the selected area. The number of treatments, power and duration are always selected individually for each patient.
The treatment gives an immediate, visible effect of reducing body fat and cellulite, improves blood circulation, and as a result causes acceleration of metabolism and better tissue nourishment and improves the appearance of the skin. The effects are visible after the first treatment and increase with each subsequent treatment. We obtain modeling of selected parts of the face and body as well as smoothing the skin.
Is the procedure painful
The Medic Contour treatment is non-invasive, practically painless and does not require anesthesia, and can be performed regardless of the season. During the procedure, the patient feels only pleasant warmth. For safe operation, it is very important in what technique and material the heads are made of (usually titanium, silicone) and what size they are. In addition, the appropriately selected frequency and depth of wave penetration are very important.
How often is the procedure performed
The effect is visible after just one treatment. Depending on the treated surface, for the best results it is best to carry out a series of treatments of 3-5 treatments at intervals of 2-3 weeks.
Recommendations after procedure
After the treatment, you can immediately return to your daily activities. Treatments can also be performed in summer.
Side effects are very rare. Most often it is mild erythema lasting up to an hour, moderate redness. Moreover, in the area where the treatment was performed, you may experience increased sensitivity to touch for a few days after the treatment.
