INDIBA is an international award-winning technology that uses mono-polar radio-frequency (RF) heat to deliver an array of cosmetic treatment benefits. INDIBA Deep Care is the line of treatment used by cosmetic surgeons and other medical professions. The technology has been used for over 35 years and has produced over 50 scientific reports that confirm its safety and efficacy.
The post-surgery INDIBA treatments are based on treating an area of the face or body by delivering an RF current at the specific frequency of 448 kHz as this is the frequency at which the body’s natural healing process is triggered.
The non-invasive cosmetic technology works by applying a medical grade electrode onto the skin of the area needing treatment. The electrode is then continuously rotated over the area to deliver the RF energy in order to accelerate the body’s healing process.
The electromagnetic current will target the body’s tissue in order to inwardly and outwardly rejuvenate the affected area following cosmetic surgery. While you may feel the heat radiating over your body, the treatment will not feel uncomfortable and in fact delivers a pleasant sensation for most patients. The treatment is quick, painless, and requires no downtime.
Benefits of post-surgery INDIBA treatments
Post-surgery INDIBA treatments can significantly improve the holistic experience of your cosmetic surgery by delivering the following three benefits:
INDIBA treatments can reduce oedemas (swelling) and accelerate tissue repair which can significantly reduce the recovery time of the surgery. These effects will also translate into less pain and trauma following the surgery with most patients noticing around a 50% reduction in their pain intensity after just two sessions.
INDIBA treatments can significantly improve the appearance of scars by breaking down scar tissue in order to make it softer and smoother with each treatment. This in turn speeds up the rate at which the scars naturally fade. For example, patients who undergo blepharoplasty, a cosmetic procedure where scars take between 3-6 months to soften, have seen their recovery period accelerated to a month and a half.
INDIBA’s RF technology stimulates embryonic cells in order to repair the tissue in the treated area. This process can help you achieve a faster recovery with improved cosmetic results as your body is encouraged to heal naturally. In addition, the effects of the cosmetic procedure can hydrate your tissues, stimulate the production of collagen, and tighten the skin around the area to restore it back to its original healthy state.
How does INDIBA work?
By operating at a stable frequency of 448 kHz, INDIBA treatments deliver three biological effects, each of which work at different temperatures to deliver the cosmetic benefits listed above. The clinician will apply the device at an appropriate temperature depending on your individual circumstances and the type of surgery you underwent.
The first effect, known as biostimulation, occurs under sub thermal conditions (below body temperature). At this level, you will experience multiple benefits including activation of the cell metabolic rate, reduction in pain, and increased blood flow. As the temperature of the tissue does not increase at this level, it is suitable for treating sensitive areas of the body.
The second effect, known as vascularization, occurs when the temperature of the electrode reaches thermal conditions ( a mild temperature). The benefits of applying the treatment at this level include oxygenating the tissues and cells and reducing post-surgical swelling.
The third effect, known as hyperactivation, occurs when the temperature of the electrode reaches hyperthermal conditions (a high temperature). By applying the treatment at this level you can improve the appearance of scars and other types of fibrotic tissue and encourage the production of collagen.
INDIBA treatments by our recommended doctors
Our recommended doctors offer all our patients the option to undergo INDIBA Deep Care treatments following a surgery on the face or body.
You will be able to have your first cosmetic procedure the same week as your surgery and you will notice significant results from the very first session.
The length of each session and the number of sessions you need will depend on the area of the body being treated. In general, each session usually takes around 30-40 minutes and most patients opt to have 4-6 treatments within 2 weeks after their surgery.
How much does INDIBA cost?
The exact price of the cosmetic procedure will also depend on your individual circumstances and the surgery you underwent. However, prices for one session usually range from £250 to £350 and most clinics offer package deals when the surgery and INDIBA treatments are purchased together.
During your initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss if the INDIBA treatment is suitable for your individual needs and the specific post-surgery cosmetic benefits it could deliver for you.
