As we age, our body begins to show the signs that we are not as young as we once were. These signs may include an increase in stubborn fat despite diet and exercise, sagging skin, and increase in cellulite. Thankfully, the professionals at Orlando Dermatology have RF body contouring to help reduce these unwanted symptoms of aging. Contact us today to learn more about your treatment options.
What is RF body contouring?
This non-invasive technique uses heat and radiofrequency energy to shape the body by getting rid of or shrinking unwanted fat cells. It also works to smooth the skin in areas where sagging or cellulite may be present.
How does it work?
RF body contouring uses heat to shrink your stubborn fat cells. Once the fat cells have been reduced in size, you are left with a more contoured shape. The heat used in this treatment also works to stimulate collagen production, which gives your skin its strength. When more collagen is produced, your skin begins to smooth and firm, reducing any sagging or wrinkles that you may have.
What are my options?
This non-invasive body contouring treatment suctions the skin in the treatment area to apply heat and RF energy to the cells. Once the unwanted cells are heated to a specific temperature, Contoura will deliver a series of energy pulses to effectively destroy the cells, leaving them to be disposed by the body. When performed on a weekly basis for 6-8 weeks, this treatment can show long-lasting results that give you a more toned physique and reduced signs of aging.
This method of RF body contouring uses a handheld device that will be moved over the treatment area. As the device is moved around, the unwanted cells are heated, causing them to shrink. At the same time, the heat is stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to tighten the skin. This body contouring and skin tightening treatment will show more immediate results, though best results are seen after 6-8 consistent sessions.

When you come in for your consultation, our friendly staff will sit with you and evaluate the treatment area. Once the evaluation is complete, you will discuss your goals for the treatment. Our expert staff will then come up with a plan with the method that works best for your needs and desires.
