3D-Body RF penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matrix where the collagen fibres are embedded. The local heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres, and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblastin order to accelerate production of new collagen fibres and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.
Areas that can be improved with this treatment:
3D-Body RF Technology
3D-Body RF technology is a fantastic treatment for both skin tightening and cellulite reduction. The 3D-Body RF energy selectively increases the temperature of the fat cells, by doing so simultaneously in deep and superficial layers of fat. This increases the metabolism and release of liquid fat from fat cells. Normal cells can support 60 degrees but fat cells start to be melted at 41 degrees. After the treatment and release of liquid fat, the fat cells shrink in size, and skin is restored closer to its original form, reducing or eliminating the appearance of cellulite.
How many treatments are recommended?
A course of treatment is typically 8 – 10 individual 45 minute sessions.
What results can I expect from this treatment?
Results can be seen as soon as after your first treatment, however a course of treatments are recommended as results are further improved after each treatment.
Can I combine 3D-Body RF with other treatments?
Many people who have 3D-Body RF choose to combine it with other procedures. Typically, this treatment can be combined with 3D-cavitation, to devise a treatment course to target fat removal, cellulite and skin tightening for an all-round package. However, 3D-Body RF can be performed as a standalone course depending on personal targets. We would advise that you speak with one of our therapists prior to the commencement of 3D-Body RF to discuss your treatment goals.
What will I experience during treatment?
3D-Body RF is a relaxing treatment. First of all, an ultrasound gel will be placed onto the skin, this acts as a conductor for the 3D-Body RF energy. A hand-piece with metal probes will be placed onto the skin and moved in gentle circular motions around the skin. You will hear a slight beeping noise coming from the machine, the hand-piece will get warmer and warmer, building heat until it reaches 40 degrees. Your therapist will use an infrared thermometer to measure the heat of the skin. Once temperature has built up to 40 degrees, your therapist will continue to maintain the heat, continuing treatment on the area for 2-4 minutes, before moving onto the next area.
