Transcript

  • 1. ELOS technology for treatment adipose tissue and skin tightening
  • 2. ELOS technology
    • The technology is based on combined tissue heating using optical energy and RF current.
    • ELOS technology may be combined with vacuum pulses for treatment of subcutaneous tissue.
  • 3. The Vela Idea
    • Re-contouring of skin surface by increase of controlled metabolism in adipose tissue by increasing rate of metabolic reaction and substance diffusion.
  • 4. VelaSmooth
    • Infrared light tight the skin
    • RF creates hyperthermia of fat
    • Vacuum and mechanical action stretch connective tissue and improves blood circulation
  • 5. Cellulite Treatment Fat clusters growing in chambers of connective tissue (septae) create cellulite phenomena Vela treatment destroys the fat by acceleration of metabolic process Improved skin appearance after 5-10 sessions
  • 6. Vacuum pinches the skin and attaches it to the rotating electrodes
  • 7. Mechanism of Increasing Blood Supply
    • 90% of blood vessels are closed at normal atmospheric pressure.
    • Decreasing the atmospheric pressure vessel cause dilatation and increases blood flow.
  • 8. Heating Scheme for Deep Hyperthermia
    • Infrared light heats the tissue up to 5mm depth
    • RF heats tissue from 5 to 15mm depth
    IR Lamp Parabolic reflector Infrared filter RF electrodes
  • 9. Hyperthermia Effect on Metabolism
    • Increases substance exchange between fat cells and blood vessels
    • Increase rate of fat metabolic reaction
  • 10. Oxygen Transport Coefficients in Water Hyperthermia increases diffusivity of oxygen and decreases skin viscosity delivering more oxygen from capillaries to mitochondrion 4.88x10 -5 0.467 60 3.99x10 -5 0.547 50 3.24x10 -5 0.653 40 1.97x10 -5 1.002 20 Diffusivity of O 2 [cm 2 /s] Viscosity of H 2 O [centipoises] Temperature O C
  • 11. Hyperthermia Effect on Rate of Metabolism
    • Arrhenius law for yield of chemical reaction
    • Y=At e BT
    • Where A and B as constant, t is time and T is temperature
    • Rate of metabolic reaction is exponential function of tissue temperature.
  • 12. Treatment Philosophy
    • Make the body better looking
    • Redistributing the water and triglyceride by activating the metabolism of adipose tissue
  • 13. Treatment Schedule
    • Number of treatments – 8-10
    • Treatments frequency - twice a week
    • Supporting treatment - Once in 1 to 3 months
    • Treatment duration 30-40min
  • 14. Typical improvement curve (based on C. Lee M.D. data) Strong effect Saturating effect Moderate effect
  • 15. Treatment Indication
    • Cellulite
    • Non proportional fat distribution
    • Post liposuction non-uniformity of adipose tissue
  • 16. Cellulite Treatment
    • Number of passes and levels of energy should be adjusted to obtain stable erythema over the treated area
    • Slow replacement of applicator or staying on one place not longer then 5 pulses
  • 17. Dr. M. Kulick, USA Cellulite treatment
  • 18. G.Boey M.D.,Canada Cellulite treatment
  • 19. Dr. Shah, Vela
  • 20. Dr. Shah, Vela
  • 21. Dr. Christopher Ho, Vela
  • 22. Dr. Shah, Vela
  • 23. Dr. Shah, Vela
  • 24. Dr. Shah, Vela
  • 25. Tina Alster, Vela (focused)
  • 26. Dr. Shah, Vela
  • 27. Non-proportional Fat Distribution
    • Some parts of the body accumulate more fat and have to be treated more aggressively to improve body contour
    • Improvement of body contour is more spectacular than uniform fat reduction
  • 28. Anchor Zones
    • Even small reduction of fat in anchor zones improves significantly the body contouring
  • 29. Treatment of Anchor Zones
    • The anchor zones should be treated at maximal settings
    • Average number of passes applied to the anchor zones should be higher that for rest of the body at least by 2 passes
  • 30. Before After Body Contouring H. Akai, M.D. Tokyo, Japan
  • 31. Treatment of Post Liposuction Patients
    • Improves the results
      • Allows homogenization of adipose tissue
      • Improve healing process
      • Reduce loose skin
    • Treatment technique
      • Two passes with slow replacement of applicator or with staying on one place during 4-6 pulses
      • Two passes with fast moving the applicator with stronger pressing the skin
  • 32. Dr. A. Del Giglio, Italy , Post Liposuction Treatment
  • 33. Typical results
    • Steve Mulholland M.D., Toronto, Canada
      • Average abdomen circumference reduction is 5.53 cm after 12 sessions
      • 62% cellulite improvement
      • 81% patient satisfactio
    • Tina Alster, M.D., Washington, DC
      • “ Significant improvement in the appearance of cellulite and skin texture was seen in the majority of patients treated. Patient satisfaction scores and histologic tissue examination paralleled the clinical improvements observed.”
