In-vitro and In-Vivo Clinical Outcomes Using Viora’s New Multi-CORE Technology with V-FORM Handpiece
Non-invasive procedures based on different technologies such as RF are mainly aimed at reducing fat volume. Recently, in the aesthetic market, new terms such as multi-polar, tri-polar, octi-polar, etc. have appeared. The main advantages of a multi-polar handpiece are the ability to create faster heating of the skin and to deliver homogenous distribution of heat.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Viora’s new multi-polar RF handpiece (V-FORM).
Materials and Methods: In-vitro study conducted on the skin of domestic porcine using a thermal video camera. In the case study group, 10 volunteers were treated with the V-FORM handpiece for a treatment series consisting of 3-8 sessions. The clinical assessment of the treatment outcomes included skin moisture level, skin impedance, body temperature, circumferential measurements, clinical photographic assessment and BMI measurements.
Results: The in-vitro experiments revealed that heating depth obtained from the different RF frequencies validates the theory that RF penetration depth in tissue is an inverse function of frequency. In the case study group, the initial body temperature increased to an average of 34.0°C from 31.9°C, the initial skin moisture level increased to an average of 40.98% from 38.9% and the initial skin impedance decreased by an average of 18% by the end of the treatment course. All patients responded to the treatment and showed some degree of circumferential reduction (up to 15 cm), on at least one of two-three measured points. No side effects were recorded during the study.
Discussion and Conclusions: According to clinical data collected in this study, the new V-FORM handpiece, without any doubt, represents an effective treatment with 100% response rate along with the safest treatment profile.
