Radio frequency body contouring (also known as skin tightening) is a popular treamtent used to reduce cellulite as it tightens the skin and improves skin tone, without any pain or downtime at all.
Lipofirm Plus involves third generation radio frequency technology to offer a non-invasive, pain-free body treatment to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, firm skin, boost collagen production and tackle any pesky fatty deposits that won’t budge with exercise.
How does it work?
Radio frequency treatments deliver an electrical current via an adaptive mode handpiece operated by the therpaist to the skin, in order to heat the deeper layers of skin and more superficial layers.
When our skin receives a high frequency electrical current the cells in our bodies interpret this as an energy source, and the layers in our skin act like a resistor to the electrical current and depending on their level of resistance, will heat up to varying degrees. It is the process of heating that helps to tighten and rejuvenate skin, smoothing its appearance and reducing localised pockets of fat.
The generated heat causes local contraction of the collagen fibres immediately tightening the skin to remodel and rejuvenate the effects of ageing.
The local fibroblasts stimulate the collagen formation by heating the dermis and it then acts as a new deep foundation for the skin. This produces further delayed tightening which become visible over a few months.
Radiofrequency also improves blood flow, encourages lymphatic drainage and provides a better oxygen supply and greater toxin clearance.
Is the procedure safe?
It is a safe procedure that can applied to almost anyone but a detailed consultation will be carried out along with a complete report of your medical history. Clients with kidney failure, liver failure, carrying a pacemaker or other electronic devices, pregnancy, breast feeding, diabetic, high blood pressure should avoid this treatment.
