Summer is here, and you know what that means: Lots of time lounging by the pool, running around in shorts and tank tops, and generally wearing less clothing than usual.
Does the idea of doing any of these things make you a bit uneasy? Are you feeling a little self-conscious about your summer body?
If so, radio frequency body contouring might be a great option to consider. Read on to learn more about this innovative fat loss treatment and find out how it can benefit you.
Radio frequency body contouring works by sending radio frequency currents through the skin. These currents safely and selectively heat the tissues where collagen fibers and connective tissues are located to over 104 degrees.
Exposure to heat changes the connective tissues that hold your fat cells in place and pulls them closer together so cellulite doesn’t bulge out. This smooths out your skin and minimizes the appearance of dips and dimples.
Radio frequency body contouring can also shrink the fat cells. This naturally slims down areas where you may be carrying some extra cushion.
Why would someone choose radio frequency body contouring over another fat loss treatment, like liposuction? This treatment offers some unique benefits that liposuction doesn’t, including the following:
Minimal healing time
Faster fat reduction and skin tightening
More noticeable results
Reduced pain and discomfort during and after treatment
Radio frequency body contouring is a great choice for those who want to improve their appearance quickly and without a long recovery period. It’s not for everyone, though.
In general, individuals who can check the following boxes are considered ideal candidates:
Those who are at a healthy weight but have stubborn fat around the stomach, thighs, hips, etc.
Those who do not have any underlying health conditions
Those who do not smoke
If you’re still unsure of whether or not you’re a good candidate, schedule a consultation to meet with a professional. They can assess your physique and recommend (either for radio frequency body contouring or another treatment) a treatment that will produce the best results.
For those who want to move forward and schedule an appointment for radio frequency body contouring in Upper West Side, here are some tips that can help you prepare for the big day:
Stay hydrated and drink at least 2 liters (about 66 ounces) of water before your treatment, and after
