Treatments


Heccus Turbo presents optimized and easy-to-use protocols. Just select the therapeutic objective and the system leads to the adequate treatment modality.

 

High Power Ultrasound

Ultrasound in the frequencies of 3.3MHz and 1.1MHz, which allow efficient treatment even in thicker adipose tissue, and 3 ultrasound emitters with ERA –effective radiation area – of 8cm² (totalizing 24cm²), with 24W each and maximum output power 72W, promoting greater therapeutic effect and shorter treatment time.

Heccus Turbo presents the modes: continuous, pulsed and superpulsed, and a light and ergonomic transducer. It associates thermal and mechanical effects which produce vasodilation and increase of tissue viscoelasticity, cavitation, mechanotransduction of the signal, lipolysis, angiogenesis, thixotropy effect, among others. In this modality, only the ultrasound transducer is used, with gel with or without actives.

 

Aussie Current

Aussie is a medium-frequency alternating therapeutic current modulated in burst. It offers two possibilities of frequencies: 1KHz and 4KHz, which allows the selection of frequency according to the therapeutic objective: 1KHz for muscle strengthening and tonification and the frequency of 4KHz for lymphatic drainage and analgesia.

The Aussie current presents the output modes: continuous, Synchronous, sequential and reciprocal, besides a short-duration burst (2ms in the 1KHz current and 4ms in the 4KHz current), which makes the stimulation more efficient in comparison to other therapeutic electric currents.

In this modality, Heccus Turbo allows the static technique with 8 electrodes (8 output channels) or the dynamic technique (via transducer), depending on the treatment protocol chosen.

 

Polarized Current

Polarized current is a pulsed monophasic current, which flows in a single direction. Its therapeutic application is in dynamic and static iontophoresis (permeation of actives through electrorepulsion) associated with the polar effects of the current. The current presents positive and negative modes.

In this modality, Heccus Turbo allows static technique with two electrodes (2 output modes) or dynamic technique (via transducer and dispersive electrode), depending on the treatment protocol chosen.

 

High Volt Current

High Volt current, also known as high voltage pulsed current (HVPC), or high voltage electric stimulation (HVES), is a current with twin pulses of high amplitude and short duration.  Its waveform is monophasic (the current flows in only one direction). High voltage promotes a decrease in the resistance of the skin, making the current comfortable and tolerable. It offers the continuous and synchronous output modes.

In this modality, Heccus Turbo allows static technique with two electrodes (2 output modes) or dynamic technique (via transducer and dispersive electrode), depending on the treatment protocol chosen.

 

Tridimensional Sonophoresis

This therapeutic modality associates high power ultrasound with Aussie current at the same time in the therapy.

As the desired protocol is selected, it is also necessary to select the value corresponding to the number of applicators which fit in the treatment area and the calculation of treatment time is given by the equipment automatically.

To calculate the intensity of ultrasound, just measure the adipose layer using the adipometer and insert the value in centimeters on the screen. The adjustment of intensity of ultrasound and the mode of ultrasound (continuous or pulsed) is automatic.

In this mode, only the transducer is used, with neutral conductive gel or with actives.

 

Sonoiontophoresis

This therapeutic modality associates the high-power ultrasound with polarized current at the same time in the therapy.

When selecting the desired protocol, it is also necessary to select the value corresponding to the number of applicators which fit in the treatment area and the calculation of treatment time is given by the equipment automatically. Also adjust the polarity of the product in P+ or P-.

To calculate the intensity of ultrasound, just measure the adipose layer using the adipometer and insert the value in centimeters on the screen. The adjustment of intensity of ultrasound and the mode of ultrasound (continuous or pulsed) is automatic.

In this mode, the transducer is used with conductive gel with actives of defined polarity, the yellow dispersive cable, aluminum plate with vegetable fabric electrode and the alligator clip adaptor.

 

Sonoelectroporation 

This therapeutic modality associates high power ultrasound with High Volt current at the same time in the therapy.

When selecting the desired protocol, it is also necessary to select the value corresponding to the number of applicators which fit in the treatment area and the calculation of treatment time is given by the equipment automatically.

To calculate the intensity of ultrasound, just measure the adipose layer using the adipometer and insert the value in centimeters on the screen. The adjustment of intensity of ultrasound and the mode of ultrasound (continuous or pulsed) is automatic.

In this mode, the transducer is used with conductive gel with actives the yellow dispersive cable, the aluminum plate with vegetable fabric electrode and the alligator clip adaptor.

 

The application of the treatments must be carried out only by qualified and dully certified professionals.  

DUET system


To make the treatment much more practical, potentialize the results and reduce treatment time, Heccus Turbo presents the exclusive and innovative Duet System.

 

What is the Duet System?

The Duet System consists in the association of two different therapies acting simultaneously in two different areas of the body.

 

How is it done?

Fundamentally, it is a mandatory therapy, that is, combined therapy (ultrasound + electric current) associated with a secondary therapy:  the use of electric current through electrodes for stimulation in a different area.

 

What are the possible combinations?

To use the Duet System, it is necessary to first choose the mandatory therapy, which is the combined therapy (ultrasound + current):

  • Localized fat + muscle tonification;
  • Localized fat + lymphatic drainage;
  • Localized fat + iontophoresis;
  • Localized fat + electroporation;
  • Cellulite + muscle tonification;
  • Cellulite + lymphatic drainage;
  • Cellulite + iontophoresis;
  • Cellulite + electroporation;
  • Immediate post-operative: ultrasound + Aussie;
  • Late post-operative: ultrasound + Aussie;
  • Immediate post-operative: ultrasound + High Volt;
  • Late post-operative: ultrasound + High Volt;
  • Permeation of actives by sonoiontophoresis;
  • Permeation of actives by sonoelectroporation;
  • Skin flaccidity.

 

After choosing the desired protocol, Heccus Turbo will open a screen for the adjustment of the parameters of the mandatory therapy.

 

The next step is to choose the secondary therapy to be performed simultaneously in a different area of the body, according to the need of the patient:

  • Muscle strengthening sedentary 1;
  • Muscle strengthening sedentary 2;
  • Muscle strengthening sedentary 3;
  • Muscle strengthening conditioned 1;
  • Muscle strengthening conditioned 2;
  • Muscle strengthening conditioned 3;
  • Sequential lymphatic drainage with Aussie;
  • Electrolipolysis;

 

After the choice, the equipment will start functioning.

Note: The treatment time for the mandatory therapy is the same for the secondary therapy. In case it is necessary to add time to the treatment of the secondary therapy, reprogram the therapy isolatedly.

Example of application: localized fat treatment + muscle tonification in the abdominal region (mandatory therapy), while carries out sequential lymphatic drainage with Aussie (secondary therapy) in lower limbs associated with postural drainage.

FAQ


Which are the energy modalities of Heccus Turbo?

Heccus Turbo allows multiple combinations of therapy: tridimensional sonophoresis (ultrasound + Aussie current), sonoelectroporation (ultrasound + High Volt current) and sonoiontophoresis (ultrasound + polarized current).

 

Is it possible to have results even with patients with greater thickness of adipose tissue layer?

Heccus Turbo presents ultrasound in the following frequencies: 3.3MHz and 1.1MHz, which is directly related to the depth of the action. As the thickness of the adipose tissue is adjusted in the parameter “Adipometer” on the screen, Heccus Turbo automatically selects the best treatment frequency for the therapeutic objective.

 

What is the effect of the superpulsed mode in the treatment of localized fat?

The superpulsed mode associates the effects of cavitation with the heat of the high power and the effects of the acoustic shockwaves. This sum of factors favors the emulsification of the fat in the adipocytes, inducing apoptosis, and making the treatment more efficient.

 

 

How is it possible to calculate the session time using the transducer?

As the conventional Heccus uses the time calculation measuring the area to be treated (area in cm²/ERA), Heccus Turbo uses the area of the transducer itself to calculate the time.  The parameter of application time is adjusted according to the following calculation: measurement applicator area = 100cm² divided by 24 (size of the effective radiation area of the ultrasound), totalizing 4 minutes of application per physical area of the applicator.

Then, just measure with the transducer itself and press, on the screen, the corresponding number, and the equipment programs the time. This results in a shorter preparation time for the session.

 

How do I calculate the ideal intensity of ultrasound for the treatment?

To calculate the intensity of ultrasound, the parameter “Adipometer” must be adjusted. Using the adipometer, measure the treatment area of the patient and insert the value obtained in centimeters on the subscreen “Insertion of data” (maximum value = 4.5cm). The adjustment of intensity of ultrasound and the mode of ultrasound (continuous or pulsed) will be automatic.

 

What can I find in the “Info” key?

In the “Info”, you can find an Informative tutorial for each treatment protocol, images and precise information about how to use the equipment in each protocol. Besides, of course, clear practical and functional information for the therapist, optimizing the use of the equipment and promoting better results.

 

When can I use the remote control that accompanies the equipment?

The remote control is an auxiliary device that allows to start (Start) and stop (Stop) the combined therapy and the adjustment of intensity of current during the session, in the modalities: tridimensional sonophoresis (ultrasound + Aussie), sonoiontophoresis (ultrasound + polarized) and sonoelectroporation (ultrasound + High Volt).

 

What can I do to prevent the excess of temperature of the head?

During the treatment, the gel tends to dehydrate, making the passage of ultrasonic energy more difficult, particularly in large areas and high power. This can elevate the internal temperature of the transducer.  To prevent that from happening, spray water over the gel during the treatment and add gel over the treatment area.

However, in case the temperature reaches the safety limit (41°C), the equipment cuts the emission of ultrasound and freezes the timer. On the display an image appears, presenting the excess of temperature message and the equipment emits a sound signal during the entire time in which the equipment is not emitting.

Spray water over the gel and continue with the treatment movement, that contributes to make the temperature fall faster.  Only when the temperature returns to under 41°C, will ultrasound be emitted again. Increase the dosage of current again and continue with the treatment.
