Radiofrequency (RF) treatments are procedures involving the use of a radiofrequency (RF) energy device to heat up and tighten tissue to boost blood flow and break down cellulite and fat. The radiofrequency energy heats the skin without damaging it, in order to break down fatty cells and stimulate collagen production, which improves skin tone and elasticity. Radiofrequency treatments can be used to treat excess pockets of fat on the stomach, hips and thighs, reduce cellulite and tighten saggy skin caused by weight loss or pregnancy. The treatment is very safe and has minimal downtime.

Radiofrequency treatments are ideal for those who wish to effectively contour the body, reduce fatty deposits and improve the appearance of cellulite.
Types of Radiofrequency
Body Treatment There are four main types of radiofrequency treatment: Accent, Thermacool, Velashape and Tripollar. All use unique hand-held devices to deliver RF energy into the skin and deeper tissues to break down cellulite; releasing and flushing away toxins and fatty deposits; draining excess fluid; and boosting collagen production to improve the skin’s appearance. Most devices are suitable for use on the face and body. Treatment usually takes from 30-90 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.
Depending on your pain tolerance, a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to your skin prior to treatment to help numb the skin. Depending on the device being used, a ‘treatment grid’ may then be drawn over the treatment area to assist the practitioner in navigating whilst delivering the RF energy to help ensure an even application of the radiofrequency. A lubricating gel will be applied over the treatment area to allow the handpiece to move smoothly over the treatment area, then your practitioner will work across the treatment area delivering targeted RF energy. Once completed, a soothing gel or cold pack may be applied to your skin.
Depending on the device being used, it may be recommended to have a session every 1-2 weeks with an average of 8-10 sessions in a treatment programme. With all devices, ongoing monthly maintenance sessions will be required.
You may be advised to apply a cooling or soothing lotion to the treatment area after a session. Most people find that they can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
Risks and complications

The most common side effects of RF treatment are some swelling, redness or bruising around the treated area, which will typically disappear in a few days.Introductory offer–USG Cavitation+RF Slimming+Laser Lipo–1500 RS / Session all inclusive
