What is TECAR Therapy ?
Targeted Radiofrequency Therapy transfers high frequency electromagnetic energy through the tissues of the body creating selective tissue hyperthermy. It has been scientifically proven to bring therapeutic effects such as immediate and intense pain relief, muscle relaxation, edema reduction and supporting tissue regeneration and healing.
Two different electrodes (capacitive and resistive) of the Targeted Radiofrequency Therapy provide precise and effective treatment at any tissue level. The capacitive electrode focuses the therapy into muscle layers. The resistive electrode targets tissue with higher impedance such as muscular insertions, tendons and bone surfaces
WHAT IS IT USED FOR ?
The precise and aimed effect of the Targeted Radiofrequency Therapy
on the hypertonic muscle fibers causes their immediate relaxation. The effect
of myorelaxation is primarily based on vasodilation, which occurs immediately during the therapy and is responsible for higher supply of nutrients into the tissue.
TISSUE REGENERATION AND HEALING
The improvement of tissue metabolism is a natural and valuable secondary outcome of the therapy. It leads to faster healing of the traumatized soft tissue and faster resorption of post-injury haematomas.
The walls of the arterioles are enlarged and the precapillary sphincters
relaxed, allowing increased local blood perfusion. This leads to an increase of
the lymphatic processes (drainage) and subsequently to reduction of the edema.
The principal effect of the Targeted Radiofrequency Therapy–the pain relief–results from muscle relaxation, edema reduction, tissue regeneration and healing.
Tecar therapy is a radiofrequency that can be used as the ability to heat up deep layers of the skin and underlying tissue, causing deep collagen structures in the skin to tighten immediately. This improves the existing collagen and promotes new collagen production to tighten the skin further, resulting in healthier, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.
