Weight management and slimming with Radio Frequency — RF tightens the skin on the face and body. It works by starting the fibroblasts in our skin again. RF also helps reduce and can even eliminate cellulite and stretch marks but will depend on your skin and everyone is different.
RF energy is able to penetrate deeper into the skin and affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers, causing tightening and improvements to the underlying tissue structure, but with little change in skin texture.
Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment is a new and promising technology for non-surgical body contouring, fat and cellulite reduction. Pure RF energy Tripollar combines RF with infrared, used in treatments to effectively contour the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat Thermage
The Thermage system is a mono-polar (one electrode) radiofrequency device that delivers radiofrequency energy deep into dermal tissues for facial skin tightening, body contouring and improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
Radiofrequency (RF) surgery has a lengthy history of use in oral, ophthalmic, plastic, and gynaecological surgery of over 70 years. Gradually, its use in the practice of dermatology, cosmetology, cardiology, neurosurgery, hematology, and ENT procedures gained momentum and popularity.
A lubricating oil, gel or cream will then also be applied over the area to be treated which acts as an additional barrier between the surface layers of your skin and the hand piece of the device, mainly to avoid skin chafing.
Your clinician will then commence the RF treatment working across the treatment area. Once completed a soothing gel/lotion or cold pack may be applied to your skin.
Depending on the device being used it may be recommended to have a session twice weekly with an average of 8 – 10 sessions in a treatment programmed, or a session once every 1 – 2 weeks with an average of 8 sessions in a programmed, however with all devices ongoing monthly maintenance will be required; your practitioner will be able to determine a course of treatments specific to you and your needs.
As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why patients should not undergo this treatment.
People with sensory disturbance to the skin may not be considered good candidates as this could make the reporting of discomfort during the procedure unreliable, leading to potential harm.
Although there is no evidence that this treatment is harmful for pregnant women, you would generally be advised to wait until after you have given birth before embarking upon a course of treatment.
More importantly, people with electrical devices e.g., pacemakers, or metal implants e.g., artificial metal hip joints, heart valves or dental plates, cannot be treated because RF current flowing through the body may interfere with these devices or heat up metal implants, which could be dangerous.
