NON-INVASIVE SKIN TIGHTENING AND LIPO-DISSOLVING TREATMENT USING RADIOFREQUENCY ENERGY. 

Transform is a non-invasive body shaping technique which treats the skin and eliminates fat below it. Transform is designed to uniformly heat the dermis while protecting the epidermis (outer layer of skin) with built-in cooling on contact. The increased temperature in the dermis causes collagen contraction and realignment as well as producing new collagen which results in firmer, younger looking skin. The possibility of treatments such as face lifts and cellulite sculpting without a scalpel, appeals to a wide variety of people who are looking for subtle improvements in their shape but who are not ready for traditional invasive surgery.

This new and exciting technology has proved to be successful for a wide range of applications including:

Cellulite body contouring
Loose skin after weight loss
Non-invasive face lift
Flabby under arms
Double chin


How does Trasform work?
The Transform system consists of a radiofrequency generator, cooling module and vacuum hand piece. The radiofrequency (RF) generator produces an alternating current RF signal of radio waves which penetrate deeply into the skin. At depths of between 2mm and 30mm the waves cause water molecules in the body to vibrate, which in turn generates heat. The machine’s computer can receive, process and display real-time information from sensors in the hand piece during each treatment cycle allowing the operator carefully control and tailor the treatment specifically for the client.

Transform provides controlled delivery of radiofrequency energy using mono-pole and bipolar hand pieces. The mono-pole hand piece allows RF energy to penetrate deeply and triggers the following tissue responses:

Tightening of the underlying tissues which in turn causes production of new collagen and also remodels existing collagen.
Increased blood circulation to the treated area resulting in the drainage of fatty deposits through the lymphatic system.
Heat-induced fat cell elimination.

The bipolar hand piece penetrates less deeply into the tissue and can be used in skin tightening procedures in areas such as the temples, where controlled heating at a desired penetration depth may be required.

Transform uses a vacuum to fold the skin, ensuring close contact and positioning of the dermis in direct alignment with the path of radio frequency. The combination of this vacuum positioning and the cooling medium concentrates heat in the dermis, sparing epidermal tissue and leading to collagen contraction and regeneration.

Why choose Transform?
Transform offers the ideal solution for people who are reluctant to accept the risks and lengthy recuperation that often accompany major cosmetic surgical procedures. Unlike surgery Transform can also rejuvenate the skin’s surface as well as restructuring sagging skin. As people have become more educated about the various skin procedures available on the market there has been an increased demand for non-invasive technique that can create dramatic change without the need for surgery. It is this that has inspired the concept and development of Transform.

How many treatments?
We recommend a course of 4 to 6 sessions (once every 3 to 4 weeks). This may be followed by a short maintenance session in 1 to 3 months time. A full session can be expected to last about 25 to 50 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

There are generally no side affects or post treatment down-time associated with this procedure and it can be used on all skin types.
