Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR FOCUSSING ULTRASONIC ENERGY
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF DE FOCALISATION D'ENERGIE ULTRASONORE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for treatment of subcutaneous tissue comprising piezo electric generators (1) to generate ultrasonic vibrations. Each has a lens (2) to focus the ultrasonic vibration at a point (3) within the tissue. The focal point may be moved so that the generated ultrasonic vibrations may be focussed exactly at a point within the tissue which requires treatment. The energy enters the surface of the body over a very wide area, and therefore causes minimum damage to healthy overlying tissue.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif permettant le traitement de tissus sous-cutanés. Ce dispositif comprend des générateurs (1) piézo-électriques permettant de produire des vibrations ultrasonores. Chaque générateur comprend une lentille (2) permettant de focaliser la vibration ultrasonore sur un point (3) situé dans le tissu. Ce point de focalisation peut être déplacé de manière à permettre la focalisation des vibrations ultrasonores produites sur le point précis du tissu nécessitant un traitement. L'énergie pénètre à travers la surface corporelle sur une superficie très large et cause ainsi un minimum d'atteintes du tissu superficiel sain.
