Full Body Radio Frequency Skin Tightening, is a minimally invasive procedure that removes fat, tightens the skin, and improves tone, without any pain or downtime. The treatment involves third generation radio frequency technology to offer a non-invasive, pain-free body treatment to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, firm skin, boost collagen production and tackle any pesky fatty deposits that won’t budge with exercise.
It’s a pretty versatile treatment as it can also help reduce flabby skin, tighten bingo wings, contour and tighten a post pregnancy tummy, reduce fine lines and wrinkles (on the face and body), reduce saddle bags and even lift and tighten your bum.
What’s more, radio frequency body contouring comes with the guarantee that you won’t need any recovery time.
How does it work? The radio frequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres. Fat cells drain, then shrink, while those all important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue), are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibres. The effect is tighter, smoother, younger looking skin with a visible ‘lift’. Fat cells are reduced and stubborn cellulite looks a lot less noticeable.
What is the treatment like? The treatment itself is surprisingly relaxing. Each area on your body is treated for 20-30 minutes. All that’s required is to show your therapist your problem areas and lie back on the treatment bed. The technique is considered relaxing to some.
When can I expect to see results?
Most patients will be able to notice immediate results in the tightness of their skin. More results continue to emerge in the days following the treatment. Skin is remarkably smoother and muscle tone is more visible too. Normally, multiple sessions are required. Usually, 1 per week until you’ve had about 4-8 treatments in total. Our professional staff at Valencia Medical Center will provide you a plan in advance, so you will know what to expect.
Are there any side effects? You can expect some occasional redness that is usually gone within 30 minutes post-treatment.
