Radio Frequency Treatment For Face and Body
A skin tightening treatment that delivers an electrical current via electrodes to the superficial and subcutaneous layers of the skin. The local heating stimulates the fibroblast cells which causes them to produce new collagen and elastin fibers. The result is tighter, smoother younger looking skin with a visible lift. A safe and effective, non-surgical slimming and fat reduction procedure.
Target areas: Arms, inner and outer thighs, breasts (male and female), hips, abdomen, and buttocks and face.

What can be treated with Radio Frequency(RF)? RF is a effective way to improve skin tightness and elasticity, reduce wrinkles and cellulite, boosting the overall condition on areas of the body such as the face, chin, upper arm, abdomen, thighs, bra line or buttocks.
Who can have Ultrasound and RF treatments? People who are generally healthy are safe to have the treatment. People with cardiac and vascular diseases, diabetes, acute illness, comprised liver function, severe bleeding tendencies, pacemaker carriers and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid undergoing the procedure.
Is Radio Frequency painful? Cavitation and RF is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable.
Is Radio Frequency safe? Are there any side effects? Radio Frequency is a safe, nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive, no cutting, no scars and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment. Due to specific ultrasound parameters of energy levels ensure selective damage to fat cells only and do not interfere with any other organs. There is no report of side effects for these treatments. However, some people may experience transient redness, excessive thirst, and nausea immediately after the treatment which always resolves by drinking water. They are all short-term effects that will disappear shortly.
How many times and how often should I have the treatments? Skin Tightening Radio Frequency : 6-10 sessions spaced 3 days apart for the first 3 sessions, then once a week. After the initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments consist of one session each month for 4 months followed by one treatment every 4 months.
Do I need to follow any guidelines before or after undergoing Radio Frequency? Try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes tanning (natural or artificial). It would be more likely to suffer pain from the addition of heat to the already damaged skin; however, an established tan would be fine.
Do not have hot shower, bath, or sauna right after the Ultrasound treatment.
We recommend a low- calorie diet with protein in each meal and drink at least a glass of warm water (not carbonated, no sparkling water, soda, or coffee) before and after the session. Drinking plenty of water and having exercise such as brisk walk, biking or other aerobic activities for at least 3 days after the treatment to stimulate the lymphatic activity as elimination of the fat continues through the Lymphatic System for 72hrs. Follow by a suitable exercise routine. Cavitation will be best performed under high hydration conditions, avoid taking any caffeine or diuretics 2 days before therapy. Drink a lot of water will help to improve your metabolism and increase urine output -- lipid metabolites release out of your body.
A lymph-draining massage is also encouraged to improve the circulation and lymphatic system, which helps to drain fluids.
For best results you should refrain from any alcohol consumption for 48 hours after the treatment. Alcohol consumption during this period may prevent your liver from removing the deactivated fat cells from your body (as the liver will assign priority to removing the alcohol from your blood).
Maintain an un-stressful lifestyle also helps the body flush out the fat more efficiently.
Pre/Post Treatment Instructions:● Avoid eating two hours before and after treatment sessions.● Avoid heavy meals on the treatment days.● Drink plenty of water to facilitate lymphatic drainage.● Limit carbonated drinks, coffee, and tea during treatment period.● Avoid fasting or the body will go into “starvation mode” and become more resistant to the release of stored fat.● Within the two hours following a treatment, the client should perform 30-45 minutes of cardio-vascular work-out in order to create the energy demand that will facilitate metabolism of the fatty acids and glycerol freed from the fat cells.● Consider contraindications or other medical issues that may impact the results of this “one off” treatment. Some medical disorders that may reduce first treatment response include thyroid, immune, lymphatic related conditions, pre-menopause, menopause, diabetes, and infection (including viral).
Possible Side Effects:● Diarrhea: when fat is successfully broken down, it must exit the body as stool. You may or may not notice an increase in bowel movements. Typically, diarrhea is mild and lasts no longer than 36 hours.● Increased urination: loss of water from your tissues is normal following procedures and is a good sign that you are removing fat from your body. Fat enters the blood from the lymphatic system, increasing the “thickness” of the blood (oncotic pressure), and pulling water from tissues to carry the fat to the bowel for removal.● Flu-like symptoms: this is rare but can occur due to toxins in the fat being removed via the lymphatic system, causing congestion. Congested lymph pathways can lead to aches, pains, water retention, soreness, and flu-like symptoms. To combat this, lymph node stimulators and a whole-body vibration plate session are used during the treatment to increase lymphatic drainage.● Increased Hunger: this is the body’s attempt at returning to normal by re-accumulating fat. Do not increase food consumption! Follow a low carb, high protein, high fiber diet to combat hunger pains.
