Weight loss RF Body contouring and Skin tightening

As people age, they become more concerned about the laxity of their body skin and the increase in abdominal and thigh circumference. Around the age of 35 to 40, the skin on the inner arms, legs, and abdomen begins to lose elasticity as aging process. This can significantly impact your self-esteem.[1]

Here in NYC, we have the solution for you – RF Body contouring. Body contouring includes manipulating adipose tissue in certain areas to achieve the desired body shape. The process leads to a change in dimensions in specific regions of your body, such as the arms, thighs, stomach, and buttocks.

What are the different ways to reshape my body?

The contouring or reshaping of the body can be accomplished through either surgical or non-surgical procedures.

Surgical methods include liposuction, which refers to removal of fat deposited in the certain areas of body. This is an invasive procedure usually done under the general anaesthesia. While surgical procedures are often associated with pain and prolonged hospital stays, non-surgical techniques such as radio frequency (RF) body contouring offer a safe, painless, and comfortable alternative.

Will I loose weight after RF Body contouring as of Liposuction?

This method provides a safer and significant alternative to liposuction, although the weight loss won’t be as dramatic.

Patients who underwent radiofrequency treatment in a clinical trial showed a decrease in waist circumference. Only the RF treatment produced a long-term cosmetic effect that lasted for at least six months, resulting in reduced body weight, BMI, and waist circumference.

Which non-invasive body contouring treatment is better RF or Ultrasound.

RF treatment is considered more effective than other non-invasive treatments such as ultrasound therapy. Ultrasound alone is not effective in reducing weight, BMI, and body circumference as of radiofrequency treatment.

RF body contouring also tightens the loose or excess skin usually observed during significant weight loss. You can choose this non-invasive procedure over the surgical outer thigh lift and buttock lift procedures.

How RF Body contouring alter my body-fat?

The use of radiofrequency, an electromagnetic wave, has been effective in treating periorbital wrinkles, rhytids, and skin laxity. RF technology has become increasingly popular for body contouring and skin tightening.

By using radiofrequency technology, it is possible to elevate the temperature of the skin’s deeper layers, while leaving the epidermal and dermal layers unharmed. This process helps in eliminating the excess subcutaneous fat. This technique not only tightens the skin but also reduces fat, making it a versatile method. This process involves heating the area for a specific time, which effectively eliminates stubborn fatty tissue.[2]

How many sessions are required for the desired results?

You may start feeling a sense of tightness in your body shortly after the first session. Visible change in appearance may require 3 to 4 sessions, but a longer duration plan may yield optimal results.

Are there any particular scenarios where avoiding RF Body contouring would be advisable?

Clinical and histologic studies have both demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of using radiofrequency energy to achieve soft tissue tightening. Although there are few contraindications, elderly patients with thin skin or autoimmune diseases may not be suitable candidates. Collagen remodelling can be affected by anti-inflammatory drugs, so it’s important to wait until your doctor gives you the go-ahead before undergoing any procedures like RF body contouring.
