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.
HOW DOES RADIO-FREQUENCY MELT FAT?
Radiofrequency delivers a safe electrical current to the treated area via the electrodes .The RF heats the area and deeply penetrates the skin. Our brain interprets the RF as a source of energy as the skin reacts like a resistor, heating the cells within a safe range and in doing so causing the skin to tighten, making it smoother and reducing cellulite.
As we get older, the integrity of our elastin and collagen proteins decrease, causing our skin to wrinkle and become loose, as well making it more susceptible to cellulite. It is the heat from the radio frequency procedure that stimulates the collagen, causing it to contract and
tighten, while disrupting stubborn fat cells.
IS THE TREATMENT SAFE?
Our Radiofrequency fat-melting treatment is safe and relaxing. Prior to your treatment we will assess your requirements and discuss your goals. Once we’re ready to start, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the warmth generated from the RF applicator. The procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes.
HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN SEE RESULTS?
This inch loss treatment is great if you are short on time as results can be experienced more rapidly than with other inch reduction techniques, and you should continue to see further improvements in the following few days*. The number of sessions you require will depend upon your requirements, which is why we suggest you book a free consultation so we can discuss your goals. If more than one session is required, we offer discounts on packages.
WILL THERE BE SIDE EFFECTS?
We recommend that you do not take too much steam or using a tanning bed in the week proceeding your radio frequency treatment as this can cause some irritation to the skin. Some mild soreness is possible but uncommon, and we advise that you use moisturiser on the area if irritation occurs.
We also recommend that you drink plenty of water in the days following your treatment as it assists collagen reproduction.
WHAT IS THE COST OF TREATMENT?
Inch Loss – Starting at ₹1500/ Per Session
