Radiofrequency uses the principle of heating tissue in order to stimulate a contraction of the dermis and combat flabbiness. The rise in temperature also stimulates the formation of blood vessels, giving greater luminosity to the skin and stimulating the circulation of blood and lymph.
This treatment is complementary to body shaping surgery as it accelerates cutaneous shrinkage and recovery, thereby reducing inflammation more quickly.
For patients with light to moderate levels of flabbiness who want to improve their skin tone.
For patients who have undergone surgical treatments such as liposuction or abdominoplasty, face lifts, etc.
For patients who want a flash effect (increased luminosity) on the skin for a special occasion.
For maintaining skin tone.
It is contraindicated for patients who have electronic medical devices such as pacemakers or medication infusion pumps.
To perform the treatment, a specialist will manipulate the heat device on the skin using circular massage. The skin temperature will rise steadily to the desired point which will then be maintained until the treatment is completed.
This type of procedure should be performed by a specialist or an assistant who is supervised by a qualified health professional.
