What Can You Expectt When Having Radio Frequency/Cavitation Treatments?

What Can You Expectt When Having Radio Frequency/Cavitation Treatments?

Radiofrequency body contouring (also known as skin tightening) is becoming all kinds of popular as it removes fat, tightens the skin and improves tone, without any pain or downtime at all!
 Radiofrequency technology offers 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 bat 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.

How does it work? The radiofrequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibers are embedded. The local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibers, and fat cells drain and then shrink, while those all-important fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue) are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibers. The effect of this 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 technician your problem areas lie back on the treatment bed and wait for the magic to begin. The technique is so relaxing that actually, it’s easy to fall fast asleep – always a sign of a good treatment.

When can I expect to see results?
Most patients will be able to notice an immediate result in the tightness of their skin, but results continue to emerge in the days following the treatment too. Skin is remarkably smoother and muscle tone is more visible too. Normally, multiple sessions are required, generally 1 every 2 weeks until you’ve had about 8-12 treatments in total, this depends on the results you want and the advice of your aesthetic practitioner.

Are there any side effects? Normally there are no side effects from the treatment, but some people might find the treatment area is a little red post-treatment; this usually resolves after 30 minutes post-treatment

Can I do a radiofrequency treatment at home? Yes. There are home devices available. However, great caution must be observed. This is a serious piece of equipment and requires education to be performed safely and successfully. Find a vendor that provides training.
