RF Skin Tightening

3D body sculpting is a nonsurgical body sculpting treatment that reduces fat and tightens skin, primarily on the abdomen and flanks (aka the love handles). It can also be used to minimize fat on the arms, neck, thighs, and back (along the bra line). A 3D treatment may also temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. RF therapy may help tighten loose skin on your body by stimulating the production of collagen.

Using radiofrequency (RF) energy, the FDA-cleared, handheld 3D sculpting device heats and destroys fat cells, which your body then metabolizes and eliminates through a process called lipolysis.

In maintaining a temperature over 115°F (46°C) for over 3 minutes, your body releases heat-shock proteins. These proteins stimulate your body to create new collagen fibers. The procedure normally takes less than an hour and should be nearly painless.

During treatment, an RF skin tightening machine will send alternating currents from the tip of an electrode to your tissue at a frequency between 0.3 and 10 MHz. This process bypasses the amount of melanin pigment present in your outer layer of skin, making the treatment effective for all skin types and colors. The procedure is done with topical or no anesthesia, and no recovery time is required. 

RF tightening requires one treatment session, but some people benefit from multiple sessions. Other types of radiofrequency treatment usually require multiple sessions to see results. Whether you get one treatment or several, results are only slightly noticeable right away, and typically take 4 months to take full effect.
