Radiofrequency Lipolysis in Washington, DC
Radiofrequency lipolysis (RF) is a non-surgical procedure that selectively targets fat cells to reduce fatty bulges. It also tightens the skin, avoiding the common post-fat reduction problem of skin laxity. RF is perfect for people who eat healthy diets and exercise, but still have stubborn bulges that don't seem to go away.
If you're ready to get rid of your spare tire or love handles, radiofrequency lipolysis may be right for you. To schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider who performs RF in Washington, DC, call (667) 401-4877 or contact Morgan Gale online.
What is Radiofrequency Lipolysis?
Radiofrequency lipolysis is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses a high-voltage electromagnetic wave to target and kill fat cells, causing them to release their contents. The remains of the fat cells are then naturally removed from the body by the lymphatic drainage system. The electromagnetic wave also causes skin cells to produce more collagen, which tightens skin and improves its structure, and elastin, which helps skin maintain its elasticity.
Each RF treatment takes approximately half an hour, and several of these treatments may be required for best results depending on the patient's cosmetic goals. RF fat reduction is intended for patients who want to get rid of small fat deposits that persist despite diet and exercise. Patients who can't have liposuction because of health conditions that may complicate surgery may also benefit from non-surgical fat reduction treatments like RF. Some patients may opt to have more than one area treated.
Radiofrequency Lipolysis Results
RF treatment boasts a shorter recovery time and less scarring/bruising than surgical liposuction. Several studies have found radiofrequency lipolysis effective for removal of fat from the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Patients with treatment to the abdomen have averaged a reduction in waist circumference of 2 cm or more. RF also has been found to increase skin tightness and elasticity.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does RF Skin Tightening Work?
Yes. Radiofrequency skin tightening is accomplished through the electromagnetic stimulation of cells called fibroblasts. The fibroblasts then release proteins called elastin, which promotes skin elasticity, and collagen, which firms and tightens skin.
Does Radiofrequency Lipolysis Require Anesthesia?
No; that is one of the advantages of radiofrequency lipolysis.
What Are the Risks of Radiofrequency Lipolysis?
Studies have found that radiofrequency lipolysis is safe and carries minimal risks. However, mild erythema (redness) at treatment sites has been reported by some patients.
