Radiofrequency and Cavitation: Is it worth it?

Radiofrequency: Radiofrequency (RF) has been used since 2001 to combat flaccidity, wrinkles, cellulite and to eliminate localized fat, allowing it to fight the signs of aging caused by sun exposure and advancing age.

Radiofrequency uses high frequency to model the body and eliminate fat located in body regions where fat usually accumulates, such as the abdomen, flanks, buttocks and thighs.

In the face area, RF is successfully used to reduce wrinkles, increase skin firmness and profile facial shapes.

Collagen is the most common protein in the body and largely responsible for skin firmness. It tends to decrease in quantity and quality after 35-40 years.

RF is a procedure that uses the energy of electromagnetic waves to increase the temperature of the deeper layers of the skin and thereby stimulate collagen production. Studies show that increases in temperature by 46 degrees maintained for about 3 minutes, allows the release of proteins that allow the production of new collagen particles.

Radiofrequency treatments are not recommended for people who have the following problems: cancer in the last 5 years; pacemaker; patients with liver disease; pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Cavitation: Ultrasonic cavitation, also known as non-invasive liposuction, is not a painful aesthetic treatment at all, it uses low-frequency radio and ultrasound waves that, when applied to the skin, reach the deepest layers causing a vibration that causes the fat cells separate from each other and after a few days are absorbed by the interstitial and lymphatic system and are eliminated from the body as waste.

It is important to know that in this method, your cholesterol must be within the desired parameters, as it is not recommended for those with high cholesterol.

Results are usually visible after a few days, often requiring several sessions.

Alcoholic beverages should be avoided in the 48 hours prior to the procedure and patients should drink at least 2l/water per day after their ultrasonic cavitation session.

The results, as long as you follow a careful, low-fat diet and exercise regularly, are lasting.

Cavitation is recommended for people with evident body volume. Generally, this treatment is performed on the abdomen and thighs, where the body volume is greater.

Vacuum therapy: Vacuum therapy is an aesthetic treatment that consists of sliding a device over the skin that performs a suction capable of promoting the detachment of the skin from the muscle, which helps to improve blood and lymphatic circulation, combating cellulite more effectively, localized fat and flaccidity, as well as helping to treat muscle contractures. The treatment results in the breakdown of the fibroses that remain in the adipose tissue, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, increased oxygenation and the release of toxins, promoting cell nutrition and ensuring a toning and firming effect. Some of the benefits of this technique include: reducing or removing muscle contractures in the neck, back, arms or legs; promote the reduction of cellulite in the abdomen, flanks, buttocks and thighs; eliminate excess fluid in the abdominal region, legs and ankles; contribute to the elimination of toxins and stimulate and help the lymphatic system; improve the skin's response to the application of creams such as moisturizers and anti-wrinkles; stimulate the production of collagen and elastin..

The BodyShape Triple Action service includes two treatments: Radiofrequency and Cavitation, as well as Vacuum Therapy. The combination of the two RF+Cavitation techniques allows the maximization of the effects of each one of them, which means better results in the reduction of both facial and body fat, combined with an improvement in flaccidity and response in the production of collagen. This treatment can also be complemented with Vacuum Therapy to enhance the results.

It is important to point out that both in a cavitation or radiofrequency treatment, the use of apparatus may not be enough, and it is recommended to have a lymphatic drainage or modeling massage, or a Pressotherapy session so that there is a referral of the adipocytes that are in the interstitial space, in order to be collected by the lymphatic system and taken to the vascular system, where they will be sent to the liver to be metabolized.
