Why Use the ISM 27 MHz Frequency?
The main advantage of this frequency is the ultrafast change of polarity, from positive to negative, represented by its 27 million cycles (Hertz) per second. The ultrafast polarity change distinguishes the Eclipsia from others since it coagulates tissues much faster than conventional devices. This speed allows extremely fast application times, making the cosmetic treatment of skin imperfections much more comfortable.
Moreover, extensive research shows that at 27 MHz, the destruction zone is concentrated closer to the probe, where the imperfection is located. Since the neighbouring tissues are not affected by heat, the comfort is unparalleled. At 3 or 4 MHz, a larger model of heat is produced. This heat penetrates much deeper into the skin, thus inducing discomfort and unwanted collateral skin reactions.
Another technical explanation is the fact that the 27 MHz frequency allows for a better absorption of the power by the water molecules contained in the skin. It then takes less power at a frequency of 27 MHz to perform a thermocoagulation treatment than it would at a slower frequency. With the same amount of power, the 27 MHz signal is then applied for a shorter period of time, which increases the level of comfort for the patient and reduces the risk of undesirable skin reactions.
