Body Contouring Treatment
Non-Invasive - Pain Free Treatment!
Body Contouring Treatment!
Finally! A pain-free, non-invasive solution for those stubborn fat areas on our body that don't seem to respond quickly to working out. With Bio2 Laser Studio's Body Contouring Radiofrequency treatments, we use bi-polar Radiofrequency to SHRINK fat cells to a minuscule size and then tighten the skin in that area. The result is a tighter, more contoured body.
Unlike treatments that freeze fat away or remove fat cells through suction, the benefit to preserving fat cells is long-term. When fat cells are permanently removed and normal weight fluctuations occur, it could result in lumpiness long term. Instead, we protect the fat cells while shrinking them leading to a much better normal looking beautiful long-term aesthetic result. During this process, you will remain in a comfortable position while our handpiece heats up to between 102 and 107 degrees, Clients often compare the sensation to a hot stone massage.
This combined with our suction device, shrinks fat and tightens skin. Common areas for this treatment are the abdomen, legs, arms, back, thighs, buttocks and love handles. Results are progressive and continue to get better after each treatment. Treatments may be spaced one to two weeks apart.
How does body contouring radiofrequency work?
Body contouring radiofrequency uses bi-polar radiofrequency energy to shrink fat cells. The energy heats the fat cells, causing them to shrink and be eliminated by the body's natural processes. Collagen production is also stimulated, which can improve the overall appearance of the skin.
What areas can be treated with body contouring radiofrequency?
Common areas treated with body contouring radiofrequency include the stomach, thighs, and arms, to reduce the appearance of cellulite and unwanted fat.
Is the treatment painful?
The treatment is usually painless, with some patients reporting a warm sensation during the procedure.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare, but some patients may experience mild redness and swelling in the treated area, which usually subsides within a few hours.
Is the treatment suitable for everyone?
Body contouring radiofrequency is not suitable for everyone, and a consultation with a qualified practitioner is recommended to determine if the treatment is right for you.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments required varies from person to person and depends on the individual's goals and the area being treated. Typically, a series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
How long does each treatment take?
The length of each treatment varies depending on the size of the area being treated, but typically takes between 30 minutes and an hour.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
There is no downtime required after the treatment, and patients can resume normal activities immediately.
When will I see results?
Results can be seen as soon as the first treatment, but optimal results are typically seen after a series of treatments.
How long do the results last?
The results of body contouring radiofrequency are long-lasting, but maintenance treatments may be needed to maintain the desired results.
Are there any risks associated with the treatment?
Body contouring radiofrequency is generally considered safe, but as with any medical procedure, there are risks and potential complications, which should be discussed with a qualified practitioner.
The History of
RF Body Contouring
The history of body contouring radiofrequency treatments can be traced back to the early 2000s. In 2002, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of the VelaShape device for the temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite and for temporary circumferential reduction of the thigh. The device uses a combination of bi-polar radiofrequency, infrared light energy, and mechanical massage to heat the fat cells and stimulate collagen production.
In 2012, the FDA approved the use of the ThermiTight device for the treatment of sagging skin on the face, neck, and body. The device uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.
In the following years, more devices that use bi-polar radiofrequency energy for body contouring were cleared by the FDA. They are now widely used for non-invasive body contouring treatments in spas, clinics, and medical offices.
It is important to note that the FDA clearance does not guarantee the safety or effectiveness of the device, but it means that the device has met the FDA's standards for safety and effectiveness for the intended use.
