In the past, there have only been two really good ways to sculpt a problem area. The standard way is an open surgery, such as a face lift or a tummy tuck or thigh lift. The issue with these procedures is that they can often result in large scars, and tend to have a longer recovery time. Given that we live in such a fast-paced world, this is not so desirable. A second option is a tumescent liposuction. It allows the surgeon to sort of sculpt the body by removing fat from selected areas. It has a quick recovery time and leaves either very tiny, or no scars at all. Unfortunately, it can result in loose skin in the treated area.
New assisted liposuction technology is happy to present a new solution: Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction. RFAL is a new, FDA approved technology that removes fat while at the same time tightening skin. It uses a unique bipolar radio frequency energy that has a specific and controlled path. This helps make the radio energy travel more efficiently and safely that perhaps other devices can’t give.
The radio wave flow is controlled by a computer that manages the base of the unit as well as the current and temperature. The radio energy heats and tightens the skin as it destroys the fat. One of the biggest bonuses is that RFAL technology can be used on numerous parts of the body. It is not restricted to one area.
There are numerous benefits, such as:
– small incisions and little scarring
– minimal recovery time
– can reduce fat in small or large areas
– removes fat as well as tightens the skin
– only takes about one day for out-patient treatment
