revolutionises RF beauty treatments
Things to know about the
Monopolar radio frequency
Monopolar RF treatment
Two poles are always necessary, a transmitter that sends the radio frequency and a receiver that receives it.
High frequencies of 1 megahertz and above cause a high-frequency change of the water polarity and heat the tissue similar to a microwave.
The counter-electrode, which is glued to the body or placed under the part of the body to be treated, is the receiver.
In total, high energies have to be applied to achieve an effect.
Since this form of radiofrequency flows through the entire body, side effects cannot be ruled out.
Bi- Tripolar Radio Frequency
Bi- Tripolar RF Treatment
In the bipolar handpiece, both poles (transmitter and receiver) are located directly next to each other.
Tripolar handpieces are nothing special. There are only two identical poles (transmitter and receiver) in
receiver) are next to each other in proportion.
Since the energies flow from A to B in a very channeled way, the treatment is painful and above all
the tissue is not heated over a wide area but only in specific areas.
The depth of penetration is only very superficial and cannot penetrate deeply.
There are therefore physical limits to the effectiveness.
Multipolar radio frequency
Multipolar RF treatment
In the multipolar handpiece, various poles (transmitter and receiver) are located directly next to each other.
It is marketing in the mass.
Since the energies flow from A to B in a very channelled way, the treatment is also painful and
Above all, the tissue is not heated over a large area but only at certain points and without great depth penetration.
There are therefore physical limits to the effectiveness on the skin.
VolumetriQ radio frequency
VolumetriQ RF Treatment
The VolumetriQ treatment is the top innovation in the radiofrequency beauty market, because it fulfils all desired attributes and
ends all disadvantageous aspects of effective skin and body treatments with radiofrequency!

No counter electrode necessary for body treatments!
Coordinated VolumetriQ heating without HotSpots!
Skin temperature control through simultaneous temperature measurement in the handpieces.
Most effective body and facial treatments due to perfect energy distribution.
Temperature information visible through LED (green, orange, red) on the handpieces and in the display.
Additional acoustic temperature information.
Perfectly calibrated preset treatment programmes in the interface.
Body shaping + skin tightening
Used to achieve remarkable results in terms of improved equilibrium and stability conditions,
by converting its basic axisymmetric magnetic configuration into a “stellarator-like” configuration with spiral symmetry.

The ideal pre-treatment
DermWave™ Pro is also specifically designed to increase the permeability of the skin barrier. Active ingredients, creams and serums penetrate the skin better, as if by magic.
Newly designed handpieces for face and body with special circular loop technology, also used in Elon Musk’s TESLA, ensure 100% area effect without side effects.
Scientifically based treatment protocols and the preset DermWave™ Pro interface with all treatment parameters give the practitioner maximum safety.
Hydroporation safely hydroporates complex JetPeel™ Original JetCare™ actives across the barrier and aquaporins deep into the epidermis.
DermWave™ Pro fluidises the barrier and makes it more permeable to the active ingredients.
The collimated treatment aerosol jet of the JetPeel™ safely delivers original JetCare™ active ingredients and moisture in high concentrations into deep skin layers.
and moisture are safely transported in high concentration into deep skin layers and are resiliently deposited between collagenous connective tissue.
There, a depot is formed and the active ingredients are released over a longer period of time.
Compared to a JetPeel™ treatment alone, the combination with DermWave™ Pro
achieves up to 30% faster treatment results.
In addition, radio waves simulate a burn on the skin and heat shock proteins are released.
heat shock proteins are synthesised for rapid skin regeneration.
For skin protection after treatment, the fluidised barrier must be re-solidified and regenerated.
For treatment completion and home care, special membrane creams and highly effective lipid components are available,
antioxidants and peptide vital substances of the LANDSBERG EDELWEISS® series and skinbetter science® are available.
The water content of the epidermis regulates the elasticity and resilience of the skin.
Water is bound in the hydrophobic environment of the stratum corneum by the substances of the natural moisturising factor (NMF), such as glycerol, urea, amino acids and peptides.
such as glycerin, urea, amino acids and peptides.
The specific lipid composition is of decisive importance for the protective function of the skin barrier.
In the different skin layers, the lipids are modified by enzymes.
Water and an acidic pH value in the epidermis are necessary prerequisites for sufficient enzyme activity.
The intact stratum corneum represents an insurmountable barrier for water-soluble substances.
Numerous apparative procedures have been developed to transport substances through the protective barrier.
Sound waves (ultrasound) cause the liquid lipid bilayer to vibrate and thus change the consistency and permeability of the membrane.
Electromagnetic waves (radio frequency, microwaves, light energy) heat the lipid layer and fluidise the protective membrane (butter is liquefied when heated).
By abrading the barrier layer (microdermabrasion), active ingredients penetrate better into deep skin layers,
but the protective function is lost and the skin is massively damaged.
The skin – the unknown being…
At approximately two square metres, the skin is the largest organ in the human body.
The outer layer of skin, the epidermis, is a dynamic system of continuous proliferation and differentiation.
The most important function of the skin, apart from its many other functions (temperature regulation, sensory organ,
protection against pollutants and mechanical influences) is the hydration barrier, which prevents the skin and the organism from drying out, and
maintaining the osmotic balance of internal tissues.
These functions are performed by the stratum corneum, the outermost layers of the epidermis.
In contact with the environment, horny cells are permanently worn away and corresponding keratinised keratinocytes are reproduced in the stratum basale.
This regenerative process normally takes about 20 days and is prolonged in the course of life,
whereby the water-binding capacity of the horny layer in particular decreases.
The skin loses elasticity, becomes dry and cracked and barrier damage occurs.
This makes the skin permeable to the penetration of microorganisms, pollutants, toxins and allergens.
Epidermal lipids are formed in insufficient quantity and composition.
The consequences are increased permeability of the horny layer and loss of hygroscopic substances and water.
Water is of crucial importance for the function of the skin.
Water is a transport medium and necessary for all physiological functions in the different skin layers.
The enzymes that are effective there can only fulfil their functions if there is sufficient hydration.
The correct pH value is a prerequisite for sufficient enzyme activities.
Water transport through cell membranes is a fundamental process of life.
Aquaporins are integral membrane proteins
All living organisms regulate the inflow and outflow of water to the cells so that the function, shape and size of the cells are maintained.
Special proteins called “aquaporins” are responsible for this.
Aquaporins (AQP) are water channels that can be regulated externally to control the flow of water into and out of the cell.
All known aquaporins have a similar structure and amino acid sequence.
AQP1 consists of a chain of 268 amino acids. This forms six helices that span the membrane (integral membrane protein).
At the end of the helix is a characteristic structure consisting of three amino acids (aspara-gin-proline-alanine),
which contributes significantly to the selectivity of the water channel. [Farage MA. Textbook of Aging Skin, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2010].
Aquaporins have also been detected in the lipid membrane of the skin.
The lipid layer of the stratum corneum is water-repellent (hydrophobic) in its interior.
Therefore, its conductivity for water molecules is very low.

For water to reach deep skin layers via the lipid layer,
free water must either be conducted through specific channels
or bound to hydrophilic substances along the desmo-some bridges into the epidermis.
The water content of the epidermis is regulated by the substances of the natural moisturising factor (NMF).
Barrier damage leads to increased water loss (TEWL = transepidermal water loss) and dry and sensitive skin.
LANDSBERG EDELWEISS® series and skinbetter science® products repair barrier damage and improve skin moisture and elasticity.
