Selective radiofrequency therapy is a non-invasive approach for contactless body contouring and circumferential reduction. It uses multi polar radio frequency for non-contact treatment of subcutaneous fat.
Selective Radio Frequency is maximum energy non-invasive fat removal device that uses multi polar radio frequency for non-contact treatment of subcutaneous fat. It’s ideal for targeting the abdomen, as the applicator treats flank to flank right across the midsection, and it also targets love handles, saddlebags and inner thighs. It is safe for all skin colours, including tanned. It has the largest treatment spot size compared to other treatments and calculates the settings required automatically, based on the patient’s fat.
The electrical impedance energy travels easily through hydrated tissue, but when it reaches a non or poorly conducted layer (such as fat), the energy gets stuck and causes the tissue to heat up.
The frequencies used are best matched to the impedance of adipocytes and it specifically targets this tissue and triggers heat induced apoptosis. As only the fat cells are targeted, there is no damage to surrounding tissue, blood vessels or nerve endings, therefore there is no downtime, no swelling, no pain or bruising. This is an in and out treatment that is pleasant to have.
Results can be seen after the first treatment, however the final result is seen 2-4 weeks after their last treatment.
During your consultation, we will discuss your goals and tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your needs. Once we have completed your consultation, you will be asked to relax on a comfortable bed while one or two towels are placed on the treatment area. Then, the Selective RF applicator is placed on the target area.
Once the applicator is settled, it will stay on the area for approxemately 30 to 45 mins. You should feel a warm sensation during the entire treatment. The applicator specifically targets this tissue and triggers heat in the area.
After treatment is completed, the applicator is taken off and your treatment is done.
Selective radiofrequency is designed to deliver noncontact transcutaneous selective radio frequency, generate heat specifically in subcutaneous adipose tissue, and to induce adipocyte apoptosis with only minimal effect on skin and muscle. Water in skin contributes to its low impedance while subcutaneous adipose tissue has high impedance. Generator circuitry is engineered to selectively deliver the energy to the adipose tissue layer.
Contactless selective radiofrequency system focuses energy specifically into the adipose tissue layer, while limiting the delivery to the dermis, epidermis, and muscles. Selective RF shapes the electro-magnetic field to optimize the penetration and maximize the treatment area.
While the epidermis, dermis, and hair follicles are no affected by the treatment, the adipocytes were significantly affected. Temperature during treatment in the adipose tissue was is gradually heated up to 46°C while the skin temperature will reach only 42°C. These findings confirm that non-contact selective RF is safe and effective for subcutaneous fat reduction.
