Radio Frequency Sculpting

One of the first clinically proven FDA non-surgical medical devices for skin rejuvenation, reaching a depth of penetration of the dermis where optimal results can be obtained is achieved through Radio Frequency. This technology uses advanced deep-heat energy for body contouring that assists with cellulite reduction and tightening of the skin. Radio Frequency Sculpting helps to smooth the stomach, slim thighs and hips and tone upper arms. Radio Frequency can also safely and effectively tighten the skin on your face and neck.  The Radio Frequency facelift has been approved by the FDA as a non-surgical treatment for wrinkles and facial skin imperfections.

This technology works by uniformly heating the subcutaneous fat layer at sustained therapeutic temperatures.  The cooled tip aids in comfort, speed of treatment and effective results. It provides gradual heating to the target therapeutic temperature and epidermal protection to minimize risk of injury or pain. The fat cells are destroyed during this process and then broken down by the body over up to three months.  RF also stimulates collagen production in your skin to give it elasticity.

Compared to older, alternative approaches such as freezing or ultrasound, a Radio Frequency Sculpting treatment is more comfortable, less expensive and produces better results. Radio Frequency maximizes patient comfort and safety with no downtime or side effects. Because there is no recovery time needed, you can resume your normal activities.

What is the process?

At the start of a Radio Frequency therapy, the area to be treated is covered with a cool gel that helps to ease of maneuvering the transducer. The radio waves are then distributed to the skin’s surface and in turn cause localized heating of the dermis layers. The heating of these deeper tissues stimulates active collagen contraction and molecular change. Directly after treatment, the area will be cleansed and a mild moisturizer will be applied.

How long does it take?

Radio Frequency treatments can take 30 minutes to 60 minutes. The condition of and number of each of the area(s) being treated directly affects these variations in time. Treatments are generally administered in a series of 8 to 10 sessions that provide excellent long-term results, minimal adverse effects and high customer satisfaction. You can have up to three Radio Frequency treatments per week and results may vary from person to person. Results can be visible after only one session and become even more noticeable in the weeks following the treatment as the surge of collagen affects further skin contraction.

What does it feel like?

Although most patients report a warming sensation throughout the treatment, topical anesthetics can be requested for more sensitive skin. Minimal to zero downtime is associated with this type of skin tightening, and several patients return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.

Is it right for me?

Radio Frequency treats all ethnicities and skin types and can be used all year round. There are some circumstances when you should not have RF: if you are pregnant or nursing; on abdomen during menstruation; if you have a pacemaker, metal medical implant, skin disease or inflammation; and cannot be used on the upper eyelids (other treatments may be suitable).
