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