Am I a Good Candidate for Radiofrequency Body Contouring?

Age-old problems are solved by cutting-edge treatments. Radiofrequency body contouring is one notable solution for reshaping the body by removing undesirable pockets of fatty tissue. It aims to do so without the need for surgery. If you are looking for a non-invasive way to eliminate your stubborn body fat, then it is a good idea to learn about how this method of body contouring works.

What is Radiofrequency Body Contouring?

Radiofrequency body contouring works by transmitting energy waves into the body. These waves are unique in that they leave healthy, desirable cells like skin and muscle unharmed as they pass through them. When they reach fat cells, they make certain molecules within the cells vibrate. This causes the cells to become activated, which in turn forces the body to remove them through lipolysis.

Radiofrequency body contouring can bring more natural results with this heating action, as some of the heat is transferred to the underlying collagen layers. This initiates the process of neocollagenesis, which in turn allows for tighter skin without the need for tucking procedures like those required with liposuction.

Who is a Good Candidate for This Procedure?

There are several prerequisites for determining how ideal a candidate will be for this procedure. The most prominent of these prerequisites is a healthy, stable weight. Radiofrequency body contouring is designed to remove fat. It is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise, especially when the fact that the patient’s body must be able to remove the treated fat cells comes to light.

Patients with a controlled body fat percentage will generally see the best results. Their bodies will remove fat spots the swiftest.

This leads to the next prerequisite: patients must have only mild to moderate fat deposits. Areas, where there are large amounts of “flabby” fat, can be treated, but other procedures like liposuction will generally serve these areas better.

Willingness is another factor that makes for an ideal patient. Multiple treatments are generally required to ensure that the right amount of fat is removed from the body.

As far as other factors like age and health conditions are concerned, these factors are generally less influential on how ideal a patient is for this procedure. This is because radiofrequency body contouring is non-invasive, which means that there is little chance of negative side effects.
