SKIN AFFECTED BY CELLULITE or FAT DEPOSITS ENLARGED LOBULES or Panicles “SQUEEZED” VESSELS COLLAGEN FIBERS FRACTURED DISTURBED BLOOD AND LYMPH CIRCULATION
No enlarged lobules Round diameter of blood and lymph vessels and lymph vessels Collagen chains Normal blood and lymph circulation circulation SKIN AFFECTED BY CELLULITE HEALTHY SKIN Enlarged lobules “Squeezed” blood & lymph vessels vessels Collagen fragments Disturbed blood and lymph circulation circulation
Cellulite ReductionTechniques Mechanical Techniques that can brake fat cell clusters –Vacuum Therapy –Massage –Injections with lypophilic agents Techniques that reduce cellulite clusters by generating heat or increasing metabolism –Ultrasound –Radio Frequency –Thermotherapy Always include a technique that improves lymphatic drainage –Vacuumtherapy –Presotherapy –Manual massage
Vacuum Therapy Non invasive Vacuum application to the tissue Promotes microcirculation, removes fat and promotes lymphatic drainage Tissue relaxation One of the most effective non invasive technique for body countouring and cellulite Detoxification
Toxin – center of lobule Vitamins Minerals Proteins Lipids Water BODIES REACTION TO TOXINS WHAT CAUSES CELLULITE? STRUCTURE OF ENLARGED HYPODERMIC LOBULE ACCUMULATION IN DERMIS ISOLATION BY MACROMOLECULES
CAUSES OF CELLULITE CHANGE IN MATRIX pH Bodies defense against ACIDIC products/toxins. Aim: To prevent a small molecule of toxin from being distributed throughout the entire body. Action: The toxin is inactivated by bonding to vitamins and minerals.

LDT VACUUM RESULTS Distension of the capillary endothelia Increase in body metabolism Increased blood and oxygen released into suffocated tissues Relaxation of connective tissue Lets the skin return to a normal appearance Increase the lymphatic drainage of toxins and lipids and undesirable products
LDT EFFECTS - VISIBLE RESHAPING OF SILHOUETTE (TONED AND SHAPED CURVES) IMPROVEMENT IN SKIN QUALITY AND TEXTURE (CUTANEOUS RESURFACING AND SKIN REJUVENATION) AND SKIN REJUVENATION) REDUCTION OF EDEMA CELLULITE REDUCTION
Vacuum Characteristics No consumables Deep massage that promotes lymphatic drainage Suction or vacuum can be controlled at any time Allows you to control the high and low pressure Allows you to save patient data Allows you to change every parameter within a treatment The motor is not located in the light weight applicator. No need for special clothes to be wear by the patient
What is Ultrasound? Acoustic vibrations that are obtained thru the vibration of plates. This vibration releases acoustic waves called Ultrasound waves. Ultrasound waves penetrate tissue and meet resistance losing energy on the way. This resistance is called attenuation. Higher the frequency of the wave, bigger the resistance or attenuation. This attenuation means heat.
Ultrasound More vibrations ( higher frequency) means more resistance or attenuation and more heat. More attenuation = less ultrasound penetration. The LDT at 28 KHZ penetrates into tissue more than1 or 3 MHZ due to lower frequency/attenuation. 28 KHZ helps generate deep internal heat. 1MHZ generates more superficial heat 3 MHZ very superficial heat
Units and Action Two simultaneous LDT actions – Vacuum and Ultrasound synergize to produce: Heat Micromassage.
LDT Uses Very Low Frequency Ultrasound to Dissolve fat In order to dissolve fat, there must be fluid in the tissue Vacuum opens tissue to bring more liquid into the area The vacuum helps the removal of the dissolved fat by stimulating lymphatic drainage As a result, we observe a circumference reduction and excellent results in cellulite treatment
Actions of Low Frequency Ultrasound Low frequency ultrasound waves create microbubbles with low internal pressure. The external cellular fluid pressure causes the microbubble to implode. This implosion generates a shock wave with enough energy to break the fragile fat cell membrane, but not enough energy to break the epithelial cell membrane. As a result triglycerides are released. Selective destruction of the fat cell
Break the fact cell membrane (adipocites) Triglycerides are release to the interstitial fluid Where does it go?????
