BiPolar RF Body Contouring is non-invasive RF (Radio Frequency) technology that delivers energy to deep tissues for body sculpting, fat reduction, and skin tightening.
Heat energy causes collagen to tighten and increases the production level of collagen in the dermis which then tightens and rejuvenates the skin. Tightening then increases local blood circulation, increases the disintegration of fat cells, the breakdown of fibrous tissue, and the draining of fatty deposits into the lymphatic system. The end result is skin and contour tightening.
At SKN MediAesthetics, we offer a wide range of minimally-invasive and non-surgical body slimming and shaping procedures. It is essential to seek a consultation to help select the most appropriate treatment for your aesthetic concerns.
The treatment can be performed on the calf, arms, thighs, the area above and below the buttocks, abdomen, the back, hips, the breasts.
BiPolar RF is a very safe treatment with thousands of treatments done worldwide each year. There are no significant side effects and this treatment is suitable for almost everybody.
This is a gentle, comfortable treatment with truly no downtime and the vast majority of patients return to normal activities immediately after the treatment.
An applicator head is used to perform the treatment and based on requirements, one or more passes are done on the treated area. There is no discomfort, and the entire treatment is gentle and comfortable. The treatment sensation has often been described as a ‘ warm massage’.
The length of the treatment varies depending on the area being treated. Small areas like the arms are usually completed within 15 to 20 minutes, while larger areas like the hips and legs can last 30 to 45 minutes.
Most patients need 5 sessions for treatments to be effective
There is little or no downtime.
You can return to your daily activities immediately, just take care to avoid sun and UV ray exposure for 48 hours.
It is also important to drink water after the session to hydrate the skin.
Following the treatment, your skin will feel tighter, with more tightening improvements appearing gradually over 4-6 weeks after treatment. A single initial treatment can be enough to produce results in some people.
