3D Lipo Radio Frequency
For many clients fat reduction is only part of their concern. There is also the desire to improve the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin in specific areas of the body.
3D-lipo’s 3 dimensional approach to the problem ensures that not only will you experience fat reduction and cellulite improvement from Cavitation but with the addition of Radio Frequency we are also able to add targeted skin tightening.
Radio Frequency, in the context of aesthetic applications, is a general method to heat deep skin layers by delivering High Frequency current to the body. Skin layers act like resistors in series to the HF electrical current and depending on their resistance they heat up to varying degrees.
The targeted skin temperature should be 40º C for a few minutes but skin temperature should be kept below 45º C
Radio Frequency treatment is beneficial for patients seeking skin tightening on body or face and also offers a smoothing appearance on areas of cellulite.
The RF treatment focuses on the abdomen, thighs, inside thighs and facial skin tightening.
Each individual responds differently. On average the immediate result of a RF treatment will typically last a few days from the first treatment. After every consecutive treatment this period increases until the 5th or 6th treatment when typically the longer term results start to set. After a course of treatments, Cellulite results typically last a few months if a regime of diet and exercises is followed.
For longer term results the customer needs to return for maintenance treatments every 4-8 weeks.
Skin tightening results typically last for a few months, the customer will need to return for maintenance treatments every 4-8 weeks.
It is recommended that the Focus Fractional RF device not be used more than once per week for both skin tightening and cellulite. Letting the skin rest in between each treatment is important to allow the natural process of the skin’s collagen renewal to take full effect and in cellulite treatments the fatty tissue to metabolise. A course of 6-8 treatments is recommended.
Cellulite reduction: Anyone with cellulite and is over 18 years of age. More treatment sessions are required for higher cellulite grades.
Skin tightening: Older skin has a higher degree of sagging and wrinkling, but still has enough skin depth and collagen to generate a significant tightening effect. It also starts to lose critical collagen mass, therefore treatments are less effective and more treatments may be required.
Younger skin has a higher collagen mass and is easier to stimulate, therefore less treatments may be required. Maintenance treatments are recommended in both cases.
During treatment, a handheld device delivering RF energy gently glides over the area. Patients will feel heat on the treatment area, but is a painless and comfortable experience.
As soon as the session is over, you can immediately resume your daily routine. There is no recuperation period. It is recommended to keep the treated area away from any excess heat for a period of 24 hours. Patients are recommended to have a course of 6-8 sessions on a weekly basis. Patients state that there is no post-treatment pain or discomfort.
LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE
The right to age well – whatever your background, race, gender, interests, skin type – is everyone’s. We live in exciting times, an era when it’s never been so acceptable to just be yourself. It’s about taking care of ourselves more, loving ourselves more, being more comfortable in our own skins – and that skin looking and feeling the best it can.
