RF treatments cause the heating of fat cells in the adipose layer. This loose connective tissue is comprised mostly of adipocytes and stores energy in the form of lipids (fats). The heat from RF forces the adipocytes to release the fatty acids into the lymphatic system, which acts as a filter for the body. Once the fatty acids are released from the adipocytes, they shrink and the body becomes slimmer. RF can thus be used to enhance Ultrasound Cavitation or as a stand alone for therapy which is what makes it so versatile.
In addition to slimming the body, RF technology heats both the dermal and subcutaneous layers of skin. We utilise TriPolar radio frequency, which combines monopolar and bipolar energy in one hand-piece. TriPolar energy is delivered into multiple layers of skin while protecting the surface layer. This heating process during treatment causes collagen fibers within the layers of skin to contract. The contracting of fibers tightens the skin creating a tighter, brighter, more youthful appearance. New collagen and elastin fibers below the surface are created as a result of the increase in metabolism of fibroblasts. This production causes the long lasting effects that individual’s desire.
