Cellulite consists of the dimpled appearance of skin caused by fat deposits that are just beneath the skin. It generally appears on skin in the abdomen, lower limbs, and pelvic region. Most often, cellulite manifests itself in adult life on many areas of the body.
Cellulite is located at the subcutaneous fatty layer. There are 3 different grades of cellulite:
Grade 1 classification sees no clinical symptoms, but a microscopic examination of cells from the area detects underlying anatomical changes.
Grade 2 cellulite requires the skin to show pallor (pastiness), be lower temperature, and have decreased elasticity in addition to anatomical changes noted by microscopic examinations.
Grade 3 cellulite has visible roughness of the skin (like an orange peel) along with all grade 2 signs.
Radiofrequency Cellulite Treatment
RF offers a technological breakthrough that uses advanced deep-heat energy for body contouring, reducing cellulite, and skin tightening. Spa RF helps to flatten the stomach, slim thighs and "lovehandles" and tone upper arms.
Some important highlights of the procedure include:
Safe for all ages and skin types – Spa RF treats all ethnicities and skin types and can be used all year round. Results are visible after only a few sessions.
Virtually Painless - IN-Motion technology with cooled RF tip represents a breakthrough in client comfort, speed of treatment and effective results. It provides gradual heating to the target therapeutic temperature and superior epidermal preservation to minimize risk of injury or pain. The comfortable treatment allow customer to return immediately to their daily schedules, with no downtime whatsoever.
Treatment Comfort & Intervals- Sessions are comfortable quick and virtually pain-free. There is no recovery needed. Treatment intervals are approximately 10 days to 2 weeks apart.
RF takes conventional radiofrequency technology a step further to produce very consistent results with its superior technology. The radiofrequency energy heats the dermis, the inner layer of the skin. During this process, this targeted energy helps reorganize the cells and stimulates them to release toxins, drain retained fluids and produce new collagen.
The RF breakthrough technology gradually heats the layers of skin to tighten and recontour collagen (for smooth, youthful appearance) and connective tissue both on the surface and deep within the skin.
RF is a non-invasive procedure that tightens and shapes the skin by promoting collagen production. Prior to treatment, baby oil is applied to the area the client wishes to treat, the hand piece is then passed over the skin multiple times heating up the skin, causing the area to appear red and feel warm. The temperature gauge is applied to the skin often throughout the treatment so we are always aware of the amount of heat we are delivering into the dermis. Radiofrequency waves penetrate the subcutaneous tissue, allowing the water molecules to rotate at a speed of 40 million times per second. The friction causes the fat cells to compress; the cells are then pushed towards the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes are drained through natural activity of the body and drainage is improved by a healthy diet and regular exercise.
