usedforanyotherpurposesotherthanthoseindicatedinthismanual.

1.1GENERALSAFETY.

Radiofrequency is a device for localized heat treatment that is able to treat subcutaneous tissue with
radiofrequency waves by a capacitive system. The frequency of emission 470KHz 10%, the possibility of
regulating the temperature as desired, that for safety reasons can never exceed 47C, the capacitive
couplingwhichisdeterminedbyimpedanceandthesizeoftheelectrodessuppliedasstandard,allowfora
controlled heating of the adipose tissue and the subcutaneous tissue of the face. Radiofrequency is
particularly indicated for the localized treatments of cellulite, wrinkles, orange peel skin, post acne
treatments,scartissueingeneralaswellasofferingahighlyeffectiveAntiAgingtreatment.

Thetherapeuticapplicationofelectricalcurrentthroughradiofrequencytreatments,(diathermy)generates

1.3MOVINGTHEMACHINEINTHEWORKPLACE.

This machine has been made with ease of movement in mind. If however the need arises to move the
machinefromoneareatoanother,themachineshouldalwaysbemovedinahorizontalpositionandwith

1.4EXPLOSIONSANDFIRES.

When in the proximity of sharp metal objects, RADIOFREQUENCY emissions may cause micro sparks. It is
therefore recommended not to perform treatments near flammable liquids or gases or other flammable
materials.

4.2.2MANUALOPERATION.

Using the MANUAL mode of operation, the power is regulated by the operator and the tissue heats to a
temperature that depends upon the impedance of the tissue and by the power input by the operator.

NOTE
All data regarding the power and impedance are important in that they allow the operator to verify that
there is good conductibility between the electrodes and the return plate (impedance). The lower the
impedancethebetterthecontact,andthereforelesspowerwillbeneededtooptimizetreatments.

CAP.5RADIOFREQUENCY

5.1HOWRADIOFREQUENCYWORKS.

RADIOFREQUENCY electromagnetic waves, RF in short, between 0,3MHz and 10GHz penetrate into the
tissueandproduceheatfollowingtheabsorptionofEnergyintothesetissues.Thedepthofpenetrationof
theRFwavesdependsonthefrequencyofthewavesandisgreaterwhenthefrequencyislower.Thegreater
partoftheeffectsthatcanbeverifiedafterRFtreatmentscanbeexplainedasaninducedheatingthatgives
rise to an increase in the tissues treated, greater than 1C. The induced heating of body tissue can cause
several physiological phenomena that are linked with thermoregulation. There are two ways in which RF
energycanbeappliedtopartsofthehumanbody,bothpresentdifferentphysiologicalresponses:Inthefirst
case,theelectrodesaremetallic,inthesecondtheyareinsulated.Inbothcasesthesizeoftheelectrodesis
sometimes less than the size of the return plate, and sometimes they are of the same size as the return
plate.InthefirstinstancetheprimaryphysicalprincipleoftheeffectsofRFappliedtohumantissueisthatof
the IONIZATION of the organic molecules which behave as electrical charges that in the presence of a
variable(intime)electricalfield(electromagneticwaves),giverisetoacurrent.Thecurrentthatcirculatesin
thetissueprovokesthegenerationofheatbytheJouleeffect,accordingtotherelationship:

J=I2Rt
WhereJ=energy,I2=cuberootofcurrent,R=impedanceofthetissue,andt=time
Saidheating,whichisresistiveinitsnature,willbeaccentuatedifthetissueoffersgreaterresistance,suchas
bones,musclesorfat..

ResistiveEffect

Thelinesoftheelectricalfieldareshowningreen.Thefactthatthearrowsflowintwodirectionsshowsthat
the polarity between the plates changes periodically at 475,000 times per second. In this way, the heat is
generatedduetotherapidmovementofelectricalchargesfromtheactiveelectrodetothereturnplateand
throughthetissueinthemiddle.Theheatingthereforetakesplacedeepwithinthetissue.

31

Inthesecondcase,(capacitivemethod)thephysicalprincipleisthatofthePOLARIZATIONofthemolecole
thatbehavelikeelectricaldipolesandtheyalignthemselvesalongthelinesofenergyoftheelectricalfield
generated bewteen the two plates. This is because the active electrode is insulated (ceramic) and thus
between the active electrode and the return plate there is no movement of electrical charges but just an
electrical field that creates a capacitive effect and a polarization of the organic molecules. The variation
withintheelectricalfieldwithafrequencyof450,000timespersecond,meansthatthepolarizedmolecules
oftissuecollidewithoneanotherandcauseheatingbyfiction,whichiscapacitive.Inthisway,onlyorganic
molecules near to the active electrodes surface will be affected, and only subcutaneous tissue will be
heated.
