Midsummer beauty treatments aren’t usually recommended, but this minimally invasive treatment should give you the final touch to your summer body – and without any downtime: Attiva Radiofrequency Therapy can use heat to specifically stimulate the body’s collagen production and thus your figure and improve complexion. . We met Dr. Yankova, who offers this procedure in Munich, for an interview.
Dr. Maria Yankova: Hardly anyone is 100% satisfied with how they look or feel. So everyone sees a “need for improvement” in one or another area of the body. How nice it would be if there was a remedy that could correct and improve several problem areas at once: smooth wrinkles, improve cellulite, remove fatty deposits, and also raise the breasts or buttocks. We can now fulfill this wish: With Attiva Radiofrequency Therapy, also known as “endoderm radiofrequency therapy”, a wide range of applications can be implemented in different areas of the body.
How exactly does ATIVA radiofrequency therapy work?
The concept of the treatment is as simple as it is innovative: Collagen is a very important part of the body because it gives tendons, ligaments and bones stability and elasticity of the connective tissue under the skin. Collagen is also responsible for keeping the skin firm and free of wrinkles. Over the years, the production of special protein gradually decreases: wrinkles appear and sagging parts of the skin. Attiva radiofrequency therapy can specifically use heat to stimulate collagen production in the body. In order to obtain the shape and skin improvement results, we insert a micro probe into the subcutaneous tissue of the area to be treated. We are now purposefully and consciously applying RF energy to specific areas, generating heat that can be individually controlled. It penetrates deep into the tissues and changes occur there. At the same time, the surface of the skin is treated with a low temperature. This causes the collagen fibers in the lower layers of the skin to contract. At the same time, there is a metabolic activation of mobile connective tissue cells, fibroblasts. This means that different materials are produced. This stimulates the formation of new collagen in the skin. These processes lead to an immediate, continuous and permanent tightening of the skin structures.
In what areas of the body can the method be used?
One can apply Attiva from ‘head to toe’.
How much time do you have to plan treatment and is there a recovery period?
The treatment lasts from 90 to 120 minutes. The patient is able to work immediately and does not have a recovery period. Small swellings and hematomas usually disappear after a few days.
What results can you achieve?
Tissue can get new elasticity and freshness through treatment with Ativa on different parts of the body. In general, the treatment can be applied to all areas where collagen occurs – or is lost as a result of the natural aging process. Depending on the temperature used, different effects on the connective tissue can be achieved with ATIVA. In detail these are:
Improving the appearance of surgical or post-traumatic scars: Attiva causes a “dissolution” effect, which can loosen tissue adhesions such as scars.
Wrinkle treatment and reduction: Collagen regeneration allows the skin to plump from the inside for a long time. In this case, he looks more youthful, fresh and firm.
Cellulite treatment: The formation of new collagen significantly improves the appearance of cellulite. Scratches, holes and waves can be smoothed out or completely flattened.
Removal of fat deposits: Radiofrequency treatment of the endoderm can not only reactivate collagen production. Bothersome fat deposits (such as double chins, love handles, and fat deposits in the stomach and back) can also be completely removed without liposuction. Heat can cause excess fat cells to die. They are then removed by the body’s metabolism.
light elevator: The treatment also makes it possible to “tighten” certain areas, such as the breasts or small buttocks, and treat sagging upper arms.
What requirements do you have to bring with you or do you have to prepare for treatment?
Hair should be removed from the hairy areas before treatment. Please also remove all metal objects before treatment. These include for example b- jewellery, piercings, hair clips, etc. In the case of patients with artificial joints or patients with heart disease, treatment is carried out only after a detailed consultation and physical examination.
After all, how long does the result last?
The first results are already visible in many patients after one day of treatment. Skin appears healthier and more radiant. Gradually it becomes firmer, cellulite and fat deposits are reduced. The end result occurs after about four to six weeks and lasts up to three years, depending on the lifestyle.
What is the difference between ATIVA and all other radiofrequency treatments?
Conventional radiofrequency treatments treat the skin externally with an electrode. Your weft is being heated up and the cuticle is being cooled at the same time. Thus, the intensity of the thermal effect depends on the cooling options of the device. Basically, this type of treatment is not painful. However, some patients feel discomfort when the skin is heated. Ativa is the so-called endoderm radiofrequency treatment and it goes one step further. We insert a micro probe into the subcutaneous tissue. This allows us to increase the heat there while simultaneously treating the surface of your skin with a lower temperature. This procedure increases the effectiveness of the treatment and a more compact result can be achieved.
