How does ULTRAcel Q+ work?
ULTRAcel Q+ delivers ultrasound energy deep down into targeted layers in the skin, right down to the Superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS). This is the same area typically addressed in a surgical face-lift. The HIFU creates controlled wounding, with no skin surface damage, to induce new collagen formation and remodeling to aid in the healing process. Results improve gradually over the 3 months following treatment as the body produces fresh new collagen.
What is Linear Technology?
Linear technology works by firing a linear line at the focal point, delivering energy to a wider target area with bulk heating, making it ideal for body contouring and fat reduction indications. ULTRAcel Q+ supports both the traditional dot technology and new linear technology.
The main differences between the two technologies are speed and indication area. The treatment speed for the dot mode is fast compared to other HIFU devices on the market, however, the linear mode speed is unparalleled, cutting treatment time down to a minimum. The dot mode reaches about 65°C, which is the optimal temperature for tissue shrinkage, effective for face elasticity and lifting. The linear mode delivers energy to a target area with bulk heating. This technology is effective for volume reduction as the temperature of the surrounding tissue reaches more than 58°C.
Linear technology is exclusive to ULTRAcel Q+.
