Radio frequency specifically targets fat cells that are then broken down to be naturally disposed of via the lymphatic system and liver and at the same time targets cellulite reduction and contraction of collagen fibres to create smoother, healthier and younger skin.
The 3D-Body radio Frequency penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra cellular matric where the collagen fibres are embedded. The heating of the area being treated causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres and at the same time increases the metabolism of the fibroblast in order to accelerate production of new collagen fibres and elastin fibres to create a smoother, healthier and younger looking skin. The technology also selectively increases the temperature of fat cells, 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°C but fat cells start to be melted at 41°C. After 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 cellulite appearance.

How This Tech Works
3D-Body RF technology is a fantastic treatment for both skin tightening and cellulite reduction. The radio frequency 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 melt at 41 degrees. After the treatment and release of fat, the fat cells shrink in size and skin is restored closer to its original form, reducing or eliminating the appearance of cellulite.
Any area with loose skin and cellulite. Common treatment areas include bingo wings, lower abdomen and back of thighs.
A course of treatments is typically 8-10 individual 45-minute sessions.
Results can be seen as soon as after your first treatment; however, a course of treatments is recommended as results are further improved after each treatment.
Yes. Many people choose to combine the treatment with other procedures. Typically, this can be combined with the cavitation/inch loss to devise a treatment course to target fat removal, cellulite and skin tightening for an all-round package. However, it can also be used alone as a standalone treatment depending on personal targets.
This is a relaxing treatment, first an ultrasound gel will be placed onto the skin which acts as a conductor for the radio frequency energy. A handpiece 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 handpiece will get warmer and warmer building the heat until it reaches 40 degrees. Your therapist will use an infrared thermometer to measure the heat of the skin. Once the temperature has heated up to 40 degrees the treatment will start to work, and your therapist will continue to treat the area and maintain the heat in an area for 2-4 minutes before moving on to the next area to be targeted.
