How does Radiofrequency Body Contouring Work?
Radiofrequency body contouring delivers special radio waves to the treatment area. These waves are received by the skin's cells and translated into energy that causes the skin to heat up. This heat transforms fat cells, collagen and elastin in the skin resulting in a tight, toned appearance.
Collagen and elastin are stimulated during the treatment, while fat cells shrink. After treatment, new collagen and elastin will begin to form. The result: skin that is tighter, more toned and all-around more youthful.
Radiofrequency body contouring can be used on nearly any part of the body, including:

Radiofrequency Body Contouring Treatment
Many patients describe the process as very relaxing. The radiofrequency body contouring procedure requires 20-30 minutes per treatment area. First, your provider will apply a jelly-based lubricant to the area and then move a wand gently over the skin to deliver the radiofrequency. While the wand itself can get hot, you shouldn't feel anything.
When your session is over, you should notice improvement in your skin's tone right away and you can expect that to improve even further over the next few days.
Radiofrequency Body Contouring Results & Recovery
Long term radiofrequency results will require several treatments. Your provider will be able to guide you in the number of treatments you need, but you can expect to have between 1 and 3 treatments per week for a total of 4-8 treatments.
Most people don't have any problems after a session. Rarely, some people experience mild redness of the skin that usually goes way within 30 minutes, but sometimes it can last 24 hours. There is no pain or down time with radiofrequency body contouring. Individual results may vary.
