Treatments


High Volt Current

High Volt Current (High Voltage Pulsed Current, also known as HVPC – High Voltage Pulsed Current) is a twin pulse current of high amplitude (high voltage) and short duration. The waveform is monophasic (the current flows in a single direction and the high voltage causes a decrease in skin resistance, making the current comfortable and tolerable.

The therapeutic effects of High Volt current are based on the use of a monophasic pulse current which cause the increase of electric charges in the tissue, promoting favorable physiological effects that trigger the process of tissue regeneration.

High voltage electrostimulation is a method to administer electrical stimulus to promote tissue healing, increase in blood flow and ATP production, phagocytosis, improvement in oxygenation, and in membrane transport, reduction of edema, stimulation of fibroblasts and epithelial cells, DNA synthesis, cellular mitosis, control of infection, aid in the organization of the collagen matrix, stimulation of contraction of skin lesion with migration of epidermis cells to the center of the lesion promoted by electrolifting.

Carboxytherapy

A carboxytherapy originated in France in 1932, and refers to the administration of carbon dioxide (CO₂) with therapeutic objectives. Initially, the treatment was carried out percutaneously, with heated carbonated water; that is, the application of water saturated in CO₂ directly onto the patents’ skin. The technique was used in the treatment of arthropathies and ulcers. The results obtained encouraged new studies, increasing the indications for other treatments.

Following the development of new technologies, the application ceased to be topic and CO₂ began to be injected directly in the subcutaneous tissue, which guarantees better and faster results.

Histological evidences of the effects of CO₂ gas infiltration in the subcutaneous adipose tissue suggest possible lipolytic effects, as well as stimulus in tissue remodeling. After the carboxytherapy treatment, due to the increase of blood flow, the areas with cellulite present improvement in tissue nutrition and more efficient drainage, which results in a smoother and healthier aspect.

Carboxytherapy has great potential in the treatment of wrinkles, skin flaccidity and eye circles, and also presents promising results in stretch mark treatments. The CO₂ employed is medicinal (99,9% purity) and identical to the one produced normally by cellular metabolism. It is non-toxic and non-embolic.

The therapeutical effects of carboxytherapy are based in natural physiological responses of the organism:

  • Bohr effect: both O₂ and CO₂ use hemoglobin as a transport medium, a protein present in the red blood cells. The Bohr effect is the term used to define the tendency of the oxygen to leave the blood flow when the concentration of carbon dioxide increases, facilitating the release of oxygen from hemoglobin and generating tissue hyperoxygenation.
  • Increase of local blood flow: the increase of CO₂ concentration and the decrease of local pH relax the smooth muscles which involve the arterioles and control the volume of blood offered to the tissue. This relaxation, consequently, promotes an increase of local blood flow, which generates an increase in the offer of nutrients and the removal of local residues and toxins. in addition, blood and lymphatic drainage is optimized.
  • Tissue distension: in the application area, there is tissue distension, by the volume of CO₂ applied. It activates a signaling cascade of the process of tissue repair and regeneration, causing the activation of fibroblast cells, which produce new collagen and elastin fibers, improving the quality of the skin. In cellulite, this effect is also very important, because the damage occurs at the hypodermic level, also with consequences in the dermis tissue.
  • Lipolysis: the increase in local metabolism results in the activation of the sympathetic nervous system, with the release of catecholamines, adrenalin and noradrenalin, into the blood flow. The catecholamines connect to their respective specific receptors located in the adipocytic membrane, which promotes the activation of the lipolytic cascade inside the adipocyte. The enzyme LHS (lipase hormone sensitive) promotes hydrolysis of triglycerides in fatty acids and one of glycerol. After the reaction of lipolysis, the fatty acids are released into the blood flow to be used, later on, as energetic fuel in the body metabolism, or redeposited in the adipocytes by means of lipogenesis.

 

Application technique

  • After the drainage of the system (when necessary), connect the kit to Ares. Then, drain the kit. Position the footswitch correctly to Ares and connect the needle to the kit.
  • Carry out the asepsis of the treatment area using alcoholic chlorhexidine at 0.5%.
  • The introduction of the needle is carried out according to the therapeutic objective. Deep or subcutaneous technique: 45°. Superficial or intradermal technique: 15°.
  • Deep or subcutaneous technique: Fold the adipose tissue and introduce the needle with an inclination of 45°. Next, activate the gas emission.
  • Superficial or intradermal technique: activate the gas emission. Introduce the bevel of the needle with an inclination from 10-15° in relation to the skin. Note the formation of a pseudo-papule.

FAQ


What does carboxytherapy consist of?

Carboxytherapy is a recent term in esthetics; however, the therapeutic administration of carbon dioxide gas (CO₂) originated in France, 1932. CO₂ is a non-toxic, non-embolic gas and is the same CO₂ used in videolaparoscopy (up to 6 liters of the gas are injected in the abdominal cavity to create pneumoperitoneum) and in exams such as arteriography.

 

Who are the professionals with capability to operate Ares?

Ares was designed to be operated only by personnel dully trained in its handling and clinical applicabilities. Contact your professional registration board for accurate information.

 

Which disorders can Ares carboxytherapy treat?   

Ares carboxytherapy can be used in hair, facial and body treatments, such as: hair loss, wrinkles and expression lines (rejuvenation), post-plastic surgery corrections, cellulite, localized fat, stretch marks and skin flaccidity.

 

 

Is the Ares equipment safe?  

O Ares is trustworthy and safe equipment. It presents software associated with a precision sensor which allows total control of the parameters (volume, flow, pressure and e total volume administered). Carboxytherapy is an effective procedure, acknowledged by the scientific community and must be carried out by qualified and certified professionals.  The patient must be informed about the procedure and the sensations expected during treatment.

 

What are the expected effects of Ares carboxytherapy?

The CO₂ insufflation in the tissue generates an almost immediate increase in vascularization, evident from the reactional hyperemia that the skin presents during the procedure, increase of microcirculation speed and also potentializing the Bohr effect (which intensifies the release of O₂ in the tissues). The therapy also stimulates the formation of new blood vessels, activates blood and lymphatic drainage and activates lipolysis in the adipocytes.

 

 

 

What are the advantages of the method?

CO₂ is widely used for dermatological and esthetic treatments; it does not increase arterial pressure of the individual, does not cause embolism, there are no age restrictions and it can be used in different areas of the body. The procedure is of easy application, with good results. The volume of gas insufflated is below the volume produced by the organism, therefore it does not interfere with the normal metabolism.

Does Ares carboxytherapy use heated gas?

Yes, it does. Ares presents a device which heats CO₂ prior to the insufflation, which decreases the patient’s discomfort, increases his/her continuity of the treatment, and also potentializes the results, since the cold gas causes vasoconstriction and this is an unwanted principle, contrary to the desired action, that is, vasodilatation,  the increase of local blood flow, and the consequent increase of the offer of O₂. However, the equipment also offers the option of not using the heating device.

 

What is the ideal interval between sessions?

That depends on the objective of the treatment. In some cases, as in the treatment of cellulite and localized fat, the procedure can be repeated twice a week. In the treatment of stretch marks, flaccidity and rejuvenation, on the other hand, relatively longer intervals must be respected, so that there is time for the natural response of the organism, that is, neocollagenesis (production of new collagen fibers) and neoelastogenesis (new fibers of elastin and collagen reorganizing).

 

 

 

What is the amplitude of the gas flow offered by Ares?

Ares carboxytherapy allows application volume per point which may vary from 5 to 300ml/min and can also be used in the Free mode, which is continuous. The flow speed also varies 5 to 300ml/min. These amplitudes allow from delicate applications to treatments where the necessary pressure must be enough to break specific barriers, such as the cellulite area.

 

Can Ares carboxytherapy be associated with other esthetic treatments?

For treatments of wrinkles, rejuvenation and skin flaccidity, carboxytherapy can be associated with microcurrents, Hooke (radiofrequency), Sonopeel (ultrasonic peeling), iontophoresis with permeation of dermocosmetics, among others.

For treatments of localized fat and cellulite, excitomotor currents can be also associated, such as Aussie current, Heccus Turbo combined therapy and mechanical massage.

In the treatment of stretch marks, it is possible to associate with microdermabrasion and/or electrolifting technique.
