(MP)²® stands for Multi Polar Magnetic Pulses. A synergy of Bi-polar RF Matrix and Pulsed Magnetic Fields.
How (MP)² Works
The Venus Freeze system consists of 2 applicators – the OctiPolar with 8 (MP)² synthesizers for large treatment areas (abdomen, thighs, arms and buttocks) and the DiamondPolar with 4 (MP)² synthesizers for smaller treatment areas (face, neck and arms). Each synthesizer simultaneously emits both RF and Pulsed Magnetic Fields. The energy rotates between any 2 synthesizers in an organized matrix, which homogeneously raises the temperature over the entire treatment area and creates a highly efficient woven dense energy matrix that penetrates deep into the different skin layers for maximum efficacy.
The Role of Pulsed Magnetic Fields in (MP)²
The Pulsed Magnetic Fields (PMF) is an important and successful modality, approved by FDA, to treat a wide range of clinical disorders, from inflammations, wound healing to pain management and more. Pulsed Magnetic Field is induced by short pulses of electrical current through coils in the applicators. The magnetic field penetrates into the skin and results in Foucault (Eddy) electrical currents around the cell membranes of the treated tissues. Foucault currents change the electrical potential of charged receptors on the bi-lipid cell membrane layer of dermal cells, which results in the stimulation of molecular and cellular activities and reactions. Magnetic Fields increase fibroblast-derived-collagen production through a non-thermal mechanism of membrane stimulation and the stimulation of fibroblast mediated angiogenesis thus facilitating and enhancing wound healing in tissues.
Clinical effect of Pulsed Magnetic Field on the skin
The Pulsed Magnetic Field affects several biological processes in the skin. It stimulates the synthesis of collagen, triggers the proliferation of fibroblasts and promotes angiogenesis. It was demonstrated that exposure of fibroblasts to low frequency Pulsed Magnetic Field significantly increases the production of collagen. In addition, Pulsed Magnetic Field triggers the release of FGF-2 by endothelial cells. FGF-2 in turn, stimulates the proliferation of fibroblasts and the formation of new small blood vessels in the dermis (angiogenesis).
The Role of Radio Frequency Matrix in (MP)²
The RF bipolar matrix supplies high-frequency alternating electrical currents that penetrate into the skin and generate heat. The RF current is produced between any two synthesizers in the array, and allows for a fast and uniform elevation of temperature in the treatment area, without any associated discomfort caused by RF focal “hot spots”.
Clinical effect of Radio Frequency on the skin
The heat generated in the tissue by the RF Matrix directly affects fibroblasts, extra cellular matrix (ECM) and fat cells. The generated heat triggers the natural wound healing process of the skin, a process that results in synthesis of new collagen and elastic fibers. In addition, the heat causes contraction of collagen fibers and lipolysis.
Clinical effect of (MP)² on the skin
The synergy between Pulsed Magnetic Field and RF significantly increases collagen and elastic fiber production in the dermis, via two separate mechanisms. Through angiogenesis, (MP)² improves the dermal blood circulation and the supply of nutrients and oxygen, and thus enhances the function of skin cells. In addition, the induced lipolysis reduces the size of fat cells. These biological effects result in improved tone, texture and appearance of the skin, and a defined body contour.
