What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency uses heat to naturally boost collagen production and break down fat cells, which tightens sagging skin, smoothens cellulite, and makes the body look slimmer and more toned. It also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin.
How does it work?
It uses polar radiofrequency, which produces uniform heat under the skin’s surface. The radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This works to increase collagen and elastic fibres, which lead to a tighter, smoother skin. This process also works to break down the volume of fat cells in the treatment area, which helps to give the body a slimmer, more contoured appearance.
How many sessions does it need?
Most patients require 6-8 sessions per area. The exact number varies from patient to patient and the area that is being treated. These sessions are conducted once a week.
Are there any side effects or complications from this procedure?
The treatment is virtually painless and you can return to your daily schedule immediately after the treatment is over. There are no long-term side effects or complications associated with it.
How long do the results last?
The results depend on age and genetic makeup of the person. For every 5-7 sessions conducted at weekly intervals, results last for 1 year or longer. It is advisable to get a touch up session done during this time. Moreover, following a healthy lifestyle and abiding by right food habits further prolongs its effectiveness.
