Skin Tightening and Body Contouring using Radio Frequency

Skin Tightening and Body Contouring using Radio Frequency

What is Radio Frequency?

Your non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime treatment option for skin tightening and body contouring. Using heat and energy of radio frequency, we are able to safely and gradually heat the tissue to a temperature of 38-41°C. This stimulates our fibroblast cells to rejuvenate, remodel and restructure the collagen and elastin fibers found within our skin.

With our Sheerwave Contour 360° we are able to treat the face and neck, as well as areas of the body including arms, stomach, flanks, thighs, and bum to help with skin tightening and cellulite reduction for a smoother, firmer skin. When treating the body, we use a larger handpiece called Quadropolar, as it is more effective to deliver the energy to a larger area.

What to Expect With Radio Frequency Treatments

These treatments are safe for all skin types and involve no downtime. Feeling warmth and seeing slight redness in the skin immediately after treatment is normal and usually goes away within the hour. To see best results with this treatment, you definitely need to be committed to your treatment series, as 6-12 treatments are recommended to be done on a weekly to bi-weekly basis. To maintain results, quarterly follow-up treatments are recommended.

At Pacifica MD, we offer all of our Radio Frequency and Body Contouring treatments in packages of 6 as we want to start with at least that many treatments. 

Our Body Contouring packages include a Nelly De Vuyst Body Brush that is used at the beginning of each treatment. The body brush is used on dry skin to oxygenate and nourish the skin from within, stimulate blood flow and the drainage of toxins, as well as exfoliate dead skin cells. Once the dry brushing is done, a hyaluronic glycerin gel is applied to the skin to help with glide of the handpiece and conduction of energy. Treatments are very comfortable and relaxing with a warmth in the treatment area. Depending on the area, treatments typically take anywhere from 15-45 minutes. All of our Radio Frequency Treatments finish with Nelly De Vuyst Skincare to further promote the stimulation of the skin’s collagen.

How to Care for the Skin After Treatments and When to Expect Results

Radio Frequency and Body Contouring are some of the easiest treatments in regards to pre and post care. Coming in for treatments well hydrated is the most important thing to remember. Patients that are well hydrated will have a better conduction of energy, yielding better results. Unfortunately, results can be slow and take time, expect to see your results within 2 weeks to 6 months after treatment. That is why our pre-treatment photos are so important. We also recommend the use of Nelly De Vuyst products regularly at home such as Lifting Complex Firming Serum and Oleaslim Cream to help remodel and firm the skin, and combat the appearance of cellulite.

Body Contouring and Radio Frequency are not recommended for patients who are pregnant, have pacemakers, or metal implants in the treatment area. The treatment will not be performed on any skin that has a sunburn or open sores or wounds as we don’t want to treat over compromised skin.

As always, a consultation prior to treatment with an experienced practitioner is always recommended to be sure this is the right treatment for you. At Pacifica MD, we offer our consultations complimentary to create your customized treatment plan and skincare options.
