The Basics Of Body Contouring
Eating a healthy balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and getting plenty of physical activity are three essential components of looking and feeling your very best. But sometimes, even checking all the boxes of physical wellness may leaving you with less than desirable results. If you deal with loose, poor tone quality, or baggy areas but you don’t want to deal with the stress of intensive cosmetic surgery, body contouring may be for you.
Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL)
A popular, minimally invasive method of smoothing out and firming the appearance of skin on the body and the face is via RFAL. This technology uses radio-frequency energy to remove internal fat removal and collagen contraction on the lower face, neck, and jowl.
An external electrode attracts RF thermal energy emanating from an internally placed probe as it moves under the tissue. During this process, the probe coagulates the blood vessels and liquifies fat so that the recovery process is much more straightforward than full cosmetic surgery.
A similar method is used over the rest of the body using the same RFAL technique. By treating fat up to two inches deep on the body, RFAL can give the body a smoothing effect on par with more intensive excisional based surgeries.
Collagen Production Stimulation
A similar RF technique to radio frequency assisted lipolysis that addresses specific aging issues of the face is collagen production stimulation. This type of technology, like RFAL, is much less costly than traditional incision based procedures that have similar effects.
RF heat waves are sent deep into facial tissue to revitalize the collagen within the skin. Repeated treatments are needed, but the process is painless and straightforward. It’s a popular treatment to quickly address problem areas like hanging jowls, lip creasing, smile lines, crows feet, and forehead wrinkles.
