Radiofrequency (RF) for cellulite & body contouring
Radiofrequency is a popular method for body fat reduction, skin tightening, cellulite & stretch marks, with no pain, recuperation or healing time. It is ideal for those who have problem areas despite a healthy diet and exercise, who are not prepared to undergo a surgical procedure like liposuctin. Radiance offers the latest new-generation RF treatments to cater to a wide range of body types.
How Radiofrequency(RF) works?
RF uses electrical energy to heat the deep layers of the skin, whilst protecting the outer layer. Heating in this area, without damaging the outer layers of skin, causes microscopic changes to the tissues and collagen contraction, with subsequent collagen remodelling over the months that pass. Treatments are comfortable, have no healing time and give immediate results. You are able to resume all your usual activities straight after. A series of treatments is usually required for optimal results.

RF technology has been used in medicine (surgery) for over 30 years for haemostasis (blood coagulation) and tissue ablation (electrosurgery). More recently it has been applied as a means of shrinking lax connective tissues through collagen denaturation. RF is a clinically proven and safe treatment technology. There are rarely any side effects, but some patients may experience a mild redness that subsides 1-2 hours after the treatment.
