About the Procedure
Radiofrequency (RF) fat removal is a new method to tighten sagging skin and smooth wrinkles around eyes without surgery. It works by tightening tissue with an advanced form of radiofrequency (RF) that allows physicians to treat ageing and sun damaged skin by delivering deep intense heat without harming the skin surface. RF is the only non-invasive, non-laser radiofrequency system that combines RF heating with cryogen cooling and other advanced safety features to monitor skin temperature and regulate treatments.
The result is a sophisticated procedure that provides immediate collagen contraction and long-term collagen replacement to further tighten skin and produce a more youthful appearance. The procedure takes about 30 minutes or less, and patients can return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.
How does it work?
The radiofrequency (RF) energy uniformly heats the dermis while cooling and protecting the epidermis. It is designed to cause immediate collagen contraction followed by new collagen production which occurs over a period of time. The RF procedure is the only non-invasive method to tighten loose skin.
What does a RF Procedure feel like?
Each time treatment is delivered there is an immediate cool sensation, followed by a brief hot sensation, followed by a cool sensation.
How long will the RF procedure take?
Depending on the size of the area treated, the procedure itself may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. Your physician may require that you arrive an hour before your procedure for administration of pain medication.
When can I return to my normal activities?
You may return to your normal activities immediately, as there is usually no “downtime”. Minimal redness is seen in some patients but it usually disappears shortly after treatment. Heat-related complications can occur but are uncommon. There is no special care needed after treatment.
When will I see results?
In most patients, results appear gradually over 2-6 months, although some patients see an earlier response.
How does the RF Procedure change your skin?
This magnified picture of skin (before image) depicts diminished collagen density and a thinning epidermis (top layer of the skin) which is typical of ageing skin. Four months after the Thermal procedure, there is a new and denser collagen and an appreciable increase in the thickness of the epidermis (after image).
How safe is it?
The RF procedure is very safe. Although it is possible that skin damage can occur, this advanced treatment has been studied carefully in hundreds of patients with minimal reports of lasting adverse effects.
