Radiofrequency energy treatments can be used to effectively contour the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat. By using RF energy to heat deposits of fat under the skin, tissues are also tightened and blood circulation is increased which in time helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Commonly Asked Questions About RF Cellulite Reduction
How Does It Work?
Cellulite affects mostly women and usually appears on the thighs, hips, and buttocks area as dimpled skin. The cottage-cheese like appearance of cellulite is caused by a number of factors: fat, skin thickness, and fibrous tissues. Connective tissues beneath the skin, called septa, pull down the skin creating dimples. These dimples are further accentuated by fat deposits and thin skin.
