Who wouldn’t want a swimsuit-ready body during summertime?
Unfortunately, getting one can take a lot of work, and sometimes, diets and exercise aren’t enough. There are just those stubborn fat pockets that won’t go away no matter what you do.
Thankfully, there’s RF body contouring, which applies radiofrequency to reduce fat in specific areas to help you get the shape you want and deserve.
What is RF Body Contouring?
RF body contouring or body sculpting, is a non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency waves to help tone and shape your body.
How Does RF Body Contouring Work?
RF Body Contouring is best for patients who are within reach of their target weight and need assistance in getting rid of fat pockets that refuse to budge, even with diet and exercise.
Specifically, it can:
Help slim and contour the face.
Sculpt or tone up specific body parts, such as the thighs, arms, buttocks, and legs.
Treat cellulite on the buttocks and other parts of the body.
Aid pre and post-liposuction smoothing.
Apart from breaking down stubborn fat, RF waves also stimulate the production of collagen to tighten up loose, sagging skin that sometimes accompanies dramatic fat loss.
What Can I Expect from My RF Body Contouring Session?
The procedure itself is simple, non-invasive, and relatively painless. After a consultation with your treatment provider about your goals and concerns, a handpiece which emits RF waves is placed directly onto the target area. These RF waves and the continuous motion of mechanical rollers then break down stubborn fat cells and trigger collagen production, which helps firm up sagging skin that sometimes accompanies fat loss. Your body naturally flushes out the broken-down fat cells afterwards.
Most people don’t feel any discomfort or pain during the procedure, and there’s usually no downtime required either.
Some people notice an improvement after one session, but to achieve optimal results, 6-8 sessions are advisable.
What are the Common Areas Treated?
RF body contouring or sculpting can help break down the stubborn fat pockets in problem areas, the most common of which are:
Submental fat or fat under the chin
Lower belly pooch
What are the Benefits of RF Body Contouring?
RF body contouring can be a painless and non-invasive alternative to liposuction, which is a surgical treatment that also removes stubborn fat but requires considerable downtime. Other benefits of RF body contouring are:
Targeted fat reduction and skin tightening
Helps tone underlying muscles
Permanent results (so long as the patient maintains a healthy weight and lifestyle)
Painless; no needles, anesthesia, or surgery required.
Relatively quick treatment time
No downtime required
What are the side effects?
Since it’s a non-surgical treatment, RF body contouring has little to no side effects at all. Some people might experience swelling, redness, or bruising after the treatment. However, these typically subside within a day or two.
