TECAR Therapy

Diathermy, or tecar therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that involves the transfer of high-frequency electrical current. Its transmission through the tissues generates a thermal increase, thus being a deep thermotherapy treatment, reaching tissues that are difficult to access with other therapies.

Our diathermy generates a vascular increase, which in turn unleashes biological processes producing regeneration, recovery, reaffirmation and compaction of the tissues, in a pleasant way and without side effects. Accelerating the recovery process of the different pathologies treated, considerably reducing the number of sessions. 

 

In our Center we trust BIOTECNA® Medical Technology and we use the Symphium – One Plus device: TECAR + IONS RESONANCE

  • This device allows capacitive (600 W), resistive (450 W) and IONS –RESONANCE (450 W) diathermy to be performed as monopolar and bipolar diathermy, allowing any application in all types of patients. IONS – RESONANS, consists of a blue chromatic LED and a resistive bipolar current, whose main function is to help protect, tone and vascular regeneration, helping to achieve resorption and physiological drainage of broad therapeutic efficacy.
  • Diathermy can be applied in many ways, the most common being the use of mobile electrodes, so that the physiotherapist performs a simultaneous massage therapy treatment. The feeling is very nice. It also allows the performance of mobilizations and / or exercise, improving the patient’s sensation, reducing pain, and increasing the effectiveness of manual therapy treatment or therapeutic exercise.
  • The indications for use of Diathermy are many, both at a therapeutic and aesthetic level. In Consulta Move & Balance we believe that it can be the ideal complement to other therapies for many pathologies that are difficult to resolve, being in many cases, the element that makes the difference and allows the definitive improvement:
  • Peri – articular pathologies (bursitis, calcifications, etc …)
  • Calcaneal calcification.
  • Shoulder calcification.
  • Prevention of overexertion injuries (musculoskeletal-tendon).
  • Non-invasive recovery of the pelvic floor.
  • Inflammatory, joint and tendon pathologies.
  • Treatment of all types of pain, including visceral pain.
  • Sports medicine.
  • Traumatology.
  • Physioesthetics.
  • Aesthetic medicine.
  • Dermatological pathologies.

USE OF DIATHERMY IN BODY TREATMENTS PHYSIOLOGICAL BASES OF DIATHERMY IN THE FIELD OF AESTHETIC / DERMATOFUNCTIONAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

  • In dermatofunctional physiotherapy treatments flaccidity is treated, improving the elasticity and tensile strength of collagen fibers through the production of neocollagen, achieving a “lifting” effect on the skin.
  • Low and Reed state in their book that collagen “melts” at more than 50º and that between 40º- 45º its extensibility increases.
  • The increase in the extensibility of the connective tissue in treated samples would demonstrate the improvement in patients with fibrosis, after surgical lifting or a body dermolipectomy. Radiofrequency or diathermy helps reduce the pressure of the skin on the muscles, especially in scarred areas.
  • There are studies that show that with deep hyperthermia we can promote the increase in the elasticity of collagen and the cohesion of the connective tissue, thus preventing sagging. According to Kede and Sabatovich, diathermy also generates an increase in dermal and epidermal thickness with an increase in the amount of collagen and a decrease in subdermal fat.
  • Diathermy accelerates the repair of damaged tissues, since by increasing their temperature, we increase blood flow and oxygen tension, while helping to reduce carbon dioxide in the blood. Just by improving the pH of the tissues we facilitate homeostasis. Furthermore, said elevation of temperature accelerates metabolic reactions, mitotic tissue division, and all this favors proper healing.
  • Many surgical procedures and cosmetic treatments do not obtain all the results that one would expect because the patient has circulatory problems, which makes recovery difficult. With the help of diathermy we promote hyperemia and venous and lymphatic drainage, which translates into greater success of both surgical and aesthetic treatments.
  • Diathermy facilitates the penetration of creams or gels with active principles (lipolytic, regenerating, anti-edematous and analgesic), because it facilitates thermophoresis. The increase in temperature opens the pore and increases the hemolymphatic circulation, increasing the absorption of the product, at a rate of 1gr per min. There are studies carried out with dermoechographs that show that the penetration of substances with a high molecular weight (elastin, collagen, proteoglycans and hyaluronic acid) is much greater when using deep hyperthermia than applying them topically. The combination of these active ingredients and diathermy improves skin hydration and increases its elasticity and turgor. All this reduces recovery times, improved results and therefore the discomfort of the patient both physically and emotionally.

Diathermy also generates an increase in dermal and epidermal thickness with an increase in the amount of collagen and a decrease in subdermal fat.

Body treatments

  • Abdominal diathermy treatment and cartridge belts:

Diathermy treatments will, thanks to the transmitted energy converted into temperature, break down the molecules that produce fat and cellulite, eliminate fluid retention or facilitate the relief produced by constipation.

  •  Anti-cellulite diathermy treatment:

A combined treatment with Capacitive and Resistant Diathermy and IONS – RESONANS for the most superficial and deep cellulite. Especially indicated to reduce volume, fat and annoying cellulite in both legs and abdomen and buttocks. This technique eliminates cellulite quickly because it stimulates all tissues by means of an endogenous and intense temperature, since its action involves with the same efficiency all the various structures damaged by cellulite.

  • Breast firming diathermy treatment:

Thanks to the diathermy treatment, a visible firming of the breasts and the entire area and skin of the décolleté is achieved. It is very convenient to work the entire peripheral area, in addition to the nipple and the strap, where a more exhaustive work will be carried out to obtain the best results. In addition to the firming treatment, It will be combined with rejuvenation and regeneration products from a recognized and effective brand.

  • Breast firming diathermy treatment:

Thanks to the diathermy treatment, a visible firming of the breasts and the entire area and skin of the décolleté is achieved. It is very convenient to work the entire peripheral area, in addition to the nipple and the strap, where a more exhaustive work will be carried out to obtain the best results. In addition to the firming treatment, It will be combined with rejuvenation and regeneration products from a recognized and effective brand.

Besides that: 

  • Firming of: arms / breasts / abdomen / inner thigh
  • Reduction of: abdomen, cartridge belts
  • Fat: edematous, macronodular, micronodular
  • Stretch marks and scars
  • Spider veins

USE OF DIATHERMY AFTER SURGERY / SCAR

The benefits of diathermy in dermatofunctional postsurgical treatments are immediate. Improved vascularization of tissues. Reduces fibrosis and adhesions, improving tissue healing and elasticity, and reducing skin edema (swelling). Reduces pain creating an analgesic effect thanks to the work of vascularization.

Helps restore superficial sensitivity after surgery like:

 

  • Abdominoplasty
  • Liposuction: cartridge belts / abdomen
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast augmentation
  • Blepharoplasty
  • Rhinoplasty

USE OF RADIOFREQUENCY IN FACIAL PHYSIOESTHETICS

Syphium – One Plus by Biotecna radiofrequency allows treating different depths of the tissue, with internal elevation of the temperature of the subcutaneous cellular tissue, without pain and respecting the epidermis.

There are radio frequencies on the market for aesthetic treatments that lack sufficient power to have long-lasting effects. Symphium – One Plus is the great therapeutic alternative with enough power to treat the deep dermis and not only produce an immediate tightening effect, but also longer lasting results after just a few sessions.

The action in the deep dermis produces a restructuring of collagen by activation of heat shock proteins. The formation of new collagen reduces the depth of the wrinkle and the size of the pore. After the first session and with parameters chosen for you, we can reach an immediate result, thus increasing the splendor of your face.

FACIAL TREATMENTS WITH DIATHERMY

  • Face Lifting
  • Wrinkles: Perfect treatment for expression wrinkles, where visible results are obtained from the first session, without the need for invasive or abrasive treatments
  • Eye bags: Diathermy treatment with drainage and tissue firming function.
