Sonofocus is focused lipocavitation equipment, which produces high intensity focused ultrasonic energy for the treatment and is designed for esthetic treatments. Sonofocus presents frequency of 1.8 MHz modulated by PWM and concave transducer which allows the concentration of ultrasound energy on the focal point at controlled depth between 1 and 1.5 centimeters). This is the ideal depth to reach the adipose tissue without offering any risks to the patient. Sonofocus is efficient, safe, easy to operate and accurate equipment.
The equipment must be used only under prescription and supervision of a licensed professional.
What is focused ultrasound?
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU – High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) was originally developed for the treatment of tumors by ablation. In that case, the high energy concentration on the focal point must be enough to destroy the tumor cells and treat cancer.
HIFU used in aesthetic treatments, consists in the propagation of ultrasonic energy through biological tissues without causing damage, because the beams of ultrasound carry energy that converges within the volume of the focal area, which can increase cavitation of the area and increase the temperature enough to cause lesion to the subcutaneous adipose tissue, with consequent degradation of the adipocytes in the treatment area. This process occurs without causing damage to the tissue around or adjacent to the treatment area.
When the adipose tissue in the focal area receives these massive doses of energy, a Strong cavitation allied to the acoustic shockwaves is produced.
