RADIOFREQUENCY BODY CONTOURING
TIGHTEN, REDUCE AND SMOOTH
Non-invasively manage and treat skin tightening of lax skin (including sagging jowls, abdomen, thighs, and arms), as well as wrinkle reduction, cellulite improvement and body contouring.
GET IN SHAPE WITH RF CONTOURING TO TARGET HARD TO TACKLE AREAS
Treatments for various non-invasive body-contouring procedures by radiofrequency (RF) are useful for patients who are interested in:
- Reducing skin laxity or looseness over the abdomen, thighs and arms
- Streamlining the body contour – Smoothing and firming the texture of the skin
- Reducing stubborn fat pockets and minimising the appearance of cellulite
RF utilises an oscillating electrical current which is transformed into heat, and it is believed to produce a micro-inflammatory process that promotes the growth of new collagen and causes the skin to contract with a temporary smoothening/tightening and firming effect.
At GOKEN 剛健 Aesthetics Practice, we have 2 machines for the purpose of contouring and tightening the skin of the body. Thermage® is available for a more effective tightening of the abdominal and body skin with improved appearance but due to its greater penetrance, there is some mild discomfort during the procedure.
The MIDAS New Hironic RF machine provides both monopolar and bipolar treatment and can be used for the body and face. Its gentler energy is more comfortable but we usually recommend a small series of treatment sessions.
Through the manipulation of skin cooling and the delivery of RF energy to precise depths in the tissues, RF treatments can also be utilised to reduce the size of stubborn fat pockets. Because RF thermal stimulation occurs irrespective of skin type or colour, RF body contouring treatments are appropriate for patients of all ethnicities and skin types.
