WHAT IS IT?
As we get older, our bodies start to produce less collagen and store more fat—this is what eventually leads to wrinkles, sagging, cellulite and other signs of aging. Our body shaping treatments use radio frequency technology. This naturally boosts collagen production and breaks down fat cells, which diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, tightens sagging skin, smoothens out cellulite, and makes the body look slimmer, sculpted, and more toned.
We use Venus Versa™ OctiPolar™ and InMode Forma Plus technology platforms for Radiofrequency (FR) Tightening.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Most patients receive 6-8 treatments per area, with each session lasting around 30-60 minutes. Treatments are usually done once a week and require no downtime, so you can return to your daily activities immediately afterward.
What areas can be treated?
- Cellulite & Body Fat
- Loose or lax skin
- Fine lines & Wrinkles
Areas commonly treated are arms, stomach area, thighs, hips, love-handles, bra roll and other areas that may need contraction.
How it Works
As we age, collagen layers become thinner and compressed (think of an older mattress), thus creating sagging skin and lines. The RF energy in these treatments allows the collagen strands to remold into tighter lines, thus improving lines, texture and laxity.
This increases collagen and skin elasticity, causing a natural healing response, resulting in an improvement to the skin and body. Results tend to improve several months after the final treatment as it takes time for collagen production to complete. A maintenance program is suggested after the initial treatments are completed to help maintain your long-term results.
There is virtually no pain or downtime. Treatments are so comfortable that they’ve often been compared to a relaxing hot stone massage. Radiofrequency is proven safe and effective for all skin tones.
How is this different to BodyFX?
The OctiPolar and Forma Plus tighten, contour and stimulate collagen production , while providing some fat reduction. The BodyFX treatments are designed for fat reduction, but also do some tightening. We recommend combining these treatments for optimal results.
Our recommendation is to mix and match the technologies, so that an BodyFX treatment can break down the fat cells and then the OctiPolar and Forma Plus can tighten and contour the area.
During a consultation one of our laser technicians will be able to advise you on the best combination of treatments and tailor make a treatment plan for you.
WHAT IS RF FACIAL?
Many patients will combine RF Tightening with Fractora Resurfacing and Lumecca Photofacial for a treatment series called FracTotal Facial. FracTotal Facial is the ultimate skin renovation treatment that addresses all in-demand facial concerns including skin laxity, uneven skin tone, uneven skin texture, wrinkles and pigmentation.
