Radiofrequency body contouring is also called skin tightening. Radiofrequency body contouring tightens the skin, removes fat and improves tone without any downtime or pain at all. This pain-free procedure reduces cellulite, boosts collagen production and gets rid of fatty deposits that fail to go with exercise. If you have flabby skin, a post pregnancy tummy, fine lines or wrinkles, saddle bags or a sagging bum, radiofrequency body contouring is meant for you.
Benefits of Radiofrequency for Body Contouring
The main benefits of radiofrequency body contouring are:
- Limited bruising
- Achieves fat reduction and tightening of the skin in a single step
- Coagulates blood vessels that reduces skin injury risks
- Less painful than conventional body contouring procedures
- Patients can experience results fast
- Swelling reduces within one week
- Produces results faster than other non-surgical procedures
Difference between Radiofrequency Body Contouring and Other Procedures
The main distinction between radiofrequency body contouring and other liposuction procedures is that this technology dissolves fat cells and tightens collagen from the patient’s skin. This procedure results in a natural contoured body and reduces the need to go for extensive body contouring and body shaping procedures.
How Does Radiofrequency Body Contouring Work?
Radiofrequency gets through your skin layers and selectively heats the skin tissue where collagen fibres are rooted. The heating causes a contraction of collagen fibres, shrinks fat cells and stimulates fibroblast cells to produce elastic fibres and collagen. The result is a smooth, tight and youthful looking skin. Stubborn cellulite is less noticeable and fat cells are reduced.
This procedure is less invasive than liposuction and patients feel little to no sensation while under the electrodes and applicator.
What is the Radiofrequency Treatment Like?
Radiofrequency treatment is relaxing. Each part of your body will be treated for a short period of time.
When Can You Expect Results?
Skin becomes smoother and the muscle tone become more visible. Attending multiple sessions may provide maximum results.
Candidates of Radiofrequency Body Contouring
The best persons for this procedure are those who are unable to lose weight through exercise and diet or have stubborn fat in particular parts of the body like the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen.
