Non-invasive｜Fat Removal ｜ Contouring
The number of fat cells in our body become steady, around 3 billion, when we reach adulthood. This number will not swing massively when we age, however, the size of aged fat cells may increase and cause the fat cells to exceed the fat fibre septum, which leads to irregular fat bumps and bumpy skin surface. Over time, the stretching from the enlarged fat cells causes fat fibre septum starts to lose its elasticity and skin appears sagging.
To reverse this kind of fat cell accumulation, we need more than just fat removal or anti-ageing treatment, but something that can target fat deposited at the skin and anti-ageing at the same time! And Inmode Contoura is the one!
Inmode Contoura can
remove fat cells in a non-invasive way,
and address anti-ageing
at the same time.
What is Inmode Contoura？
Contoura is an all-around body treatment, developed by an Iranish company called Inmode, that utilises a patented ACE technology, radio-frequency, and nanosecond high voltage ultrashort pulse technology to achieve fat reduction, skin tightening, anti-ageing and body contouring. It permanently and accurately removes unwanted fat cells and reduces the total number of fat cells in the body. The thermal effect helps increase the elasticity of the fat fibre septum and activate fat cells.
Since its launch, Contoura has drawn huge attention and stood out among many skin tightening and anti-ageing treatment solutions. It has won the Grocer New Product Award 2021 and No. 1 cosmetic surgery on Realself.
Certified by EU CE, China CFDA, and US FDA.
1st function ｜Fat Reduction & Skin Tightening
The total number of fat cells in our body will stabilise when we reach adulthood. Contoura can reduce the actual number of fat cells instead of working on the volume of fat cells, therefore, the weight loss is from the reduced number of fat cells and tent not to bounce back given that you have followed a healthy diet.
2nd function ｜Body Contouring & Anti-ageing
Our skin surface can appear bumpy due to the uneven size of fat cells. Contoura can help reduce the size of “large” fat cells and even the size of fat cells. Along with the suction coupled negative pressure and RF heat that cause the cells to heat and contract, the skin surface will become smoother.
BodyFX/MiniFX – Non-invasive Fat Removal
Kill unwanted fat cells! Reduce 30% fat cells after only one course of treatment.
The fat removal process will be completed without contacting the fat cells directly.
The BodyFX and MiniFX are handpieces for Inmode Contoura devices, aiming for different body parts. BodyFX is used to treat large areas such as the back, abdomen, and waist. MiniFX is used to treat small areas such as the face, neck, chin, and knees.
Radiofrequency heat energy induces a nanosecond high voltage pulse (HVP) sequence that further induces irreversible electroporation (IRE) of the fat cell membrane. IRE can lead to the death of up to 30% of fat cells.
Both Body FX and MiniFX apply the basic RF and high voltage ultrashort duration RF synergistically. Treatment involves 3 main steps: ① specially designed handpiece sucks up skin and fat tissues with the negative pressure; ② first round of RF emission heats up and contracts the skin and reduces the fat cells’ resistance against RF; ③ second round of high voltage ultrashort duration RF emission causes electroporation damage to the fat cells, leading to the death of fat cells and eventually reduction of the total number of fat cells.
After receiving a continuous course of BodyFX/MiniFX, fat cells and tissues have shown with below improvements:
Average thickness of subcutaneous fat was 2.78 cm before treatment; average thickness decreased by 1.10 cm 3 months after a session; average thickness decreased by 39.6% three months after the last session.
What is BodyFX/MiniFX, non-invasive fat removal?
BodyFX/MiniFX is a non-invasive fat removal and body contouring treatment that utilises controlled RF energy to effectively reduce fat cells, improve fat bulges, tighten skin, and stimulate collagen skin remodelling. It has been clinically proven that it can permanently damage and kill fat cells, bringing outstanding results on skin tightening, fat reduction and body contouring.
Are BodyFX/MiniFX safe?
BodyFX/MiniFX is absolutely safe. A series of radio frequency energy is controlled and delivered by a succession of pulses at 1 million cycles per second. It uses the A.C.E. patented technology that can detect the skin temperature and provide real time responses adjusting the temperature so as to maintain it at the desired treatment temperature range.
Do BodyF/MiniFX hurt during the treatment?
Most patients have not had any discomfort during the treatment. You may feel a warm sensation when the RF and negative pressure are in operation to remove unwanted fat cells, but it wouldn’t be painful.
Inmode Contoura – Road to Fat Reduction + Skin Tightening
◉ InMode Contoura Patented Technology
InMode Contoura adopts A.C.E. technology, radio-frequency technology and nanosecond high voltage ultrashort pulse technology for a high precise fat reduction. It is equipped with 2 fat reduction treatment handpieces, and Forma and Forma Plus treatment handpieces to contract skin.
◉ Latest FX Technology – Non-invasive Fat Reduction
High voltage Ultrashort pulse duration RF = alter permeability of the fat cell membrane, damage/kill fat cells, and reduce number of fat cells in a non-invasive way.
◉ Inmode Contoura ‘s Double Action
Suction coupled RF firstly delivers heat to the fat layer and fibrous layer, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The controlled high voltage ultrashort pulse duration RF will then emit and hence kill fat cells. The entire fat reduction process is non-invasive.
The negative pressure handpiece is specially designed to deliver suction force towards a 5cm x 2cm area of the skin and hold it still in the suction cavity at the handpiece during the treatment. The skin and tissue in the suction cavity will be heated up and treated with radiofrequency energy released by the electrodes mounted inside the cavity, providing fat reduction and skin tightening effects simultaneously.
Inmode Contoura – Core Technology
🌟 A.C.E – Precisely maintain a high and consistent temperature
★ Acquire: Maintain the treatment temperature to tighten skin and promote collagen proliferation
The RF heat sensor in the treatment head detects the temperature 1000 times every second to provide real time monitoring of the temperature and temperature change on the skin surface, and an audio signal will alert the practitioner of any significant changes in temperature.
The first round of RF sessions has shown a 13.7% increase in collagen volume. It ensures the fat reduction does not follow with sagging skin as new collagens will be produced during the treatment.
★ CONTROL: Control temperature, adjust temperature and maintain temperature at the top of the designed temperature range
Different from other dermal heating technologies, “temperature control” function is an advanced intelligent algorithm that allows practitioners to define cut-off temperatures which improve the safety and control.
★ EXTEND: Maintain the temperature to ensure no areas are underheated or overheated.
There is a 10-15°C temperature difference between epidermis and dermis. When the epidermis reaches 41-43°C, the dermis’s temperature will be 50-55°C. This temperature range provides an effective and consistent outcome without harming the skin tissues.
Clinical research data has shown that skin under constant exposure of 41-42°C promotes the skin tightening effects. Also, using the “Extend” function can ensure a prolonged exposure of the proper temperature.
