Radiofrequency is classified as electrotherapy, and devices typically work with currents in a range from 30,000 Hz to 30 MHz. Radiofrequency is used to increase local tissue temperature and generate heat. The effects of treatment depend on the temperature reached, depth of penetration, and the time that the temperature is maintained in the treated area.
Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the intrinsic properties of radiofrequency delivered in a wave of 448 kHz, which causes effects such as normalising cell function. The frequency has regenerative, anti-inflammatory, anti-algic and antiadipogenic effects, as well as stimulating stem cell proliferation during vitro studies.
Research shows the stable radiofrequency of 448 kHz allows you to achieve three different treatment effects: hyperactivation, vascularisation and biostimulation.
Hyperactiviation, with its hyperthermal effect, breaks down fat and fatty deposits, detoxifies and encourages toxin drainage, increases cell metabolism and encourages collagen production.
Meanwhile, the thermal effect of vascularisation dilates blood vessels, increases blood flow, oxygenates tissues and cells, increases cell metabolism, and encourages drainage coupled with the biostimulation (sub-thermal) effect, activating the cell metabolic rate, increasing blood circulation, and activating fibroblasts.
With over 40 years of research and 400 scientific studies, 448 kHz radiofrequency is being using in the medical, veterinary, beauty and aesthetic markets.
In aesthetics, the wavelength is used to treat pre- and post-surgery wounds for accelerated healing, reducing redness, swelling, warmth and pain, shortening the recovery period and providing an overall better treatment for the patient. By generating collagen fibres, detoxifying, and repairing tissue and increasing lymphatic drainage, the 448 kHz radiofrequency provides benefits for body contouring, skin tightening, cellulite reduction, skin hydration, facial and body skin rejuvenation, vaginal rejuvenation, and hair restoration treatments.
448 kHz radiofrequency can be used in combination with other aesthetic treatments and technologies such as threads, fillers, and fractional CO₂ laser to reduce the recovery time and/or enhance the effects.
Unique to Indiba’s energy-based devices, 448 kHz radiofrequency promotes a healthy cellular function based on the restoration and repair of current tissue, providing immediate, long-term results with more than one benefit in any one treatment, and with no pain or downtime and minimal contraindications.
