Natural ageing processes, hereditary predisposition and external influences can cause changes to our skin, such as warts, rosacea or age spots. These skin abnormalities are not only medical problems, but are also, above all, an aesthetic issue, which have negative psychological effects on those who suffer from them, thus affecting their quality of life.

With the Phlebolyser, EVATOS has created a unique microsurgical method, which can be used to remove these abnormalities on the skin surface in a gentle but effective way, without causing any side effects for the patient.

This minimally invasive method (which is more like more minor surgical procedures) is a sensible and unique type of option for the effective treatment of troublesome skin abnormalities.

Physical mode of action of the Phlebolyser

Phlebolysis is an electrophysical therapeutic method within medicine, in which heat is generated in the body tissues by a high-frequency electrical current. During the phlebolysis, heat is produced under the skin surface. The required energy is transmitted electromagnetically using radio waves, at a very high frequency. Roughly speaking, the area to be warmed up is between two the electrodes. During the process, relevant tissue is warmed up. The physical process of generating heat stems from the increase in internal energy. After a certain period of time has passed, the charge carriers of the molecules follow the high frequency field, causing the internal energy of the material to increase, thereby increasing its temperature. The powerful effect of this type of heating can be seen in the imaginary part of the complex permittivity of a skin at a given frequency. At higher frequencies or as it goes deeper into the skin, the heating of deeper or inner skin layers is limited by the skin effect, which reduces how deep the electromagnetic field penetrates the area being treated.

We refer to processes which use high-frequency electric current for the separation or localised necrosis of tissue as part of microsurgery “phlebolysis”.
