To reduce the appearance of cellulite, many people are choosing to get radiofrequency skin tightening. It’s one of the newest cosmetic treatments, and it has the potential to contour your body and improve your appearance.
Pure RF energy has been shown to be effective for cellulite reduction and body contouring. During the procedure, a special device is used to deliver RF energy deep into your skin, and the fatty layers under your skin are heated by the energy.
The radiofrequency energy is very effective for increasing blood circulation and tightening skin. It causes the fatty deposits under your skin to drain out through your lymphatic system, which significantly reduces the appearance of cellulite.
By using modern radiofrequency technology, we can give you a mild improvement in your skin tone and diminish the appearance of cellulite. Radiofrequency skin tightening requires almost no downtime, and the risks are minimal.
What is Radiofrequency Energy?
If you’re considering this procedure, you should have a basic understanding of RF energy. Without getting too technical, RF energy is one of the lower electromagnetic frequencies, and it can be very useful for skin tightening. During a skin tightening procedure, a device is used to transmit radiofrequency energy into your skin.
Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite
Radiofrequency skin tightening can diminish the appearance of the cellulite under your skin. Whether you realize it or not, your body’s muscles are wrapped inside of a layer of fatty connective tissue.
A network of fibers holds your fatty cells within a liquid medium, which is how they’re cleansed and nourished by the fluids in your body. When the natural processes in your body are slowed down, it causes the waste materials to thicken into a substance that resembles gelatin.
Cellulite gives your skin a texture similar to cottage cheese. Women are much more likely to develop cellulite than men, and it can be caused by a variety of other factors.
What to Expect
Radiofrequency skin tightening involves the use of a special treatment tip, which is applied to your skin. The tip passes RF energy into your skin and heats the inner layer. During the procedure, the outer layer of your skin is continuously cooled.
When the treatment is finished, you can return to your daily activities. You might experience temporary redness, but this shouldn’t last longer than 24 hours.
Addressing Your Cellulite
Radiofrequency skin tightening causes structural changes within the deepest layers of your skin, and it can make your skin look tighter and smoother while making cellulite less noticeable.
