Is radiofrequency the best way to deal with excess skin?Body 22 Jul 2016
Have you got loose, sagging unsightly skin on your body that you’d love to tone up, but no matter how much you diet or exercise your problem area, you can’t seem to make a difference? Perhaps you’ve never managed to achieve a flat stomach again after pregnancy? Or maybe you lost a lot of weight fast and discovered that a side-effect of that, was folds of excess skin?
Nobody wants to have to tuck their stomach into the waist of their jeans or wear long sleeves in hot weather simply because they don’t feel comfortable in their skin. Surgery is obviously an option, but a tummy tuck is a very invasive procedure that involves, stitches, scarring and a hospital stay.
You don’t have to resort to surgery. There is an easy, effective and painless way to get rid of loose skin. It’s called radiofrequency treatment and it combines radio frequency waves with ultrasound therapy. Non-invasive, with no downtime, this is a procedure which will effectively firm your skin, without you having to go under the knife.
How does radiofrequency treatment work?
Here at the Aesthetics Lab, we use the top body contouring treatment device in the USA; the Elixis Elite. Radio frequency waves are used to break down fats, while ultrasound energy is deposited into deep skin layers to stimulate new collagen and elastin. The resulting effect of this treatment is firmer, tighter, freshest skin in the areas where you most need it.
Prior to the treatment, you’ll have a consultation and skin assessment with one of our professional practitioners. Our team are highly skilled and experienced in delivering treatments safely. The consultation will be for us to determine exactly which treatment would most benefit you, and where on your body treatment will be required. We’ll also give you all the details you need so you’ll be in a position to make an informed decision about which procedure you want.
The treatment itself will last for 30-120 minutes, depending on how much coverage you need. A hand-held device will be held in the areas you’re looking to tighten. It feels like intense warming of the skin, but it isn’t painful. After your second session, you’ll begin to notice a difference. Your bulges will be flatter, your skin will be tighter and your figure will look younger. Following a few more treatment sessions, the appearance of your body, as seen in silhouette, will be transformed and consequently, your body confidence will grow.
