We all want to achieve an amazing body, but the journey to get there can be quite hard.
Sometimes, even with a restricted diet and daily exercise, we still find ways to fault our physique — from wishing our stomach could be a bit smaller, to simply trying to improve our overall figure. It’s perfectly normal to feel this way, and you’re not alone.
The thing is, it’s actually for this reason that body contouring treatments exist. These treatments are designed to target stubborn areas that are difficult to improve with diet and exercise alone.
Here at Introlift, we have different radiofrequency (RF) treatments to help you achieve the body of your dreams. The best part is that these treatments are non-invasive, quick, and painless. Join us as we walk you through our available RF body treatments, and discover why they’re worth it, as well as the benefits you can derive from each one.
What are RF Body Treatments?
Before we jump into the assortment of RF body treatments available here at Introlift, let’s first understand how they work.
Also called radiofrequency therapy or radiofrequency skin tightening, these treatments are a non-surgical way of tightening the skin.
RF body treatments utilize radiofrequency waves — a kind of radiation from low-energy electromagnetic waves.
RF waves are in no way harmful to the body; in fact, other common household equipment, like microwaves and WiFi, operate in the same frequency as RF waves. Skin tightening treatments typically use RF energy at around 450 KHz, which is over 1 billion times slower than an X-ray.
However, since radiofrequency waves release energy, they are still capable of producing heat. And that’s exactly what RF therapy utilizes.
How Do RF Body Treatments Work?
In RF body treatments, RF waves are used to heat deep into the skin’s middle layer, the dermis. This triggers the body’s wound healing process, which prompts the release of more collagen and elastin.
Now, collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, as it’s mainly used by connective tissues. At the same time, collagen is present in high amounts in the skin, since it’s responsible for creating the skin’s framework and keeping it firm.
But, collagen levels decrease as the body ages. As a result, the older you get, the more prone you are to wrinkles and sagging skin.
RF treatments are perfect for these concerns. Through boosting the skin’s collagen levels, radiofrequency therapy is capable of reducing wrinkles. Through tightening the skin, RF body treatments are also capable of contouring the body and altering its shape.
Though the use of heat may sound painful and scary, these radiofrequency treatments are not harmful at all. In fact, they can even be used safely on the face to remove wrinkles!
Let’s take a closer look at the different RF body treatments here at Introlift.
RF Body Treatments Offered at Introlift
There are three primary body contouring treatments that you can try here at Introlift: BTL Exilis Elite, Introlift RF Body Sculpting, and BTL Vanquish.
Here’s what makes each one of them special:
BTL Exilis Elite
Exilis Elite is an effective non-invasive skin tightening treatment. One of the best things about this treatment is that it requires no downtime, thanks to its gentle nature as a treatment RF-powered.
What Exilis Elite does is to contour your skin. It can effectively address your issues with sagging skin, cellulites, wrinkles, or fine lines.
It’s also a good bet for stubborn fatty areas that don’t go away, even after targeted diet and exercise.
How it Works
Exilis Elite makes use of monopolar radio frequencies, which heat the deeper layers of the skin, while keeping the surface cool. This allows it to safely reduce fat stored in the area, through overheating surrounding fat cells. But, you won’t feel anything painful during the process, since it cools the surface of your skin.
With sufficient heat delivered to your fat cells, they will eventually die and then get expelled via the body’s lymphatic system.
Results of this treatment vary from person to person, but most people who have undergone the Exilis Elite become very happy with the results of their treatment. In fact, studies have shown that RF-based skin tightening treatments are effective, with participants highly satisfied with the results post-treatment.
You’ll definitely be able to see immediate improvement in your body as soon as you finish each session of the BTL Exilis Elite. However, you can expect your body to be even better given time! Most of our customers report seeing significant, striking results around 90 days after treatment.
Note also that some people can see improvements with their physique after only one treatment; but, for best results, multiple treatments are recommended.
What’s more, the results of Exilis Elite can last you a long time. In fact, paired with proper diet and exercise, you can expect the results of this RF body treatment to last for two years.
Introlift RF Body Sculpting
This treatment is a clinically proven, non-surgical solution to help contour parts of the body resistant to weight loss through diet and exercise. This is perfect for treating pockets of fat on certain areas, for instance the stomach, hips, and thighs. This is also a good choice for reducing cellulite and tightening saggy skin from weight loss or pregnancy.
The Introlift RF Body Scuplting treatment is safe, and requires very minimal downtime, just like typical RF treatments.
How it Works
This Body Sculpting treatment also uses radiofrequency as well, which heats up the fat cells to destroy them, and ultimately expel them from the body.
What makes this treatment different from Exilis Elite, though, is the addition of the use of massage rollers, infrared, and vacuum technology.
In addition, this treatment also promotes blood flow to the treated area, which helps break down fat and cellulite. This also helps in tightening the skin in the target areas, making their appearance smooth and toned.
This is of course due to the boost in collagen that happens during the treatment; RF waves penetrate the body, and therefore stimulate collagen production as a response. This is what allows it to reduce fat in the first place!
The Introlift RF Body Sculpting Treatment is effective for the abdomen, buttocks, legs, arms, and even on the face. It’s also a great choice to accompany liposuction treatment, as it can build the skin’s elasticity prior to liposuction, and also smooth out the skin post-liposuction treatment.
This treatment only lasts anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours, and yields results quite fast! Visible reduction in cellulite and loose skin can be seen after four weeks of treatment. A marked reduction in waist size will also be apparent after this time frame.
BTL Vanquish is a non-invasive, non-surgical technology. This is currently the only FDA-approved device for permanent elimination of fat cells in the body. This treatment targets the abdomen, flanks, upper back, and thighs, and can yield visible results as soon as after one session.
This treatment is painless, and doesn’t yield discomfort, downtime, or side effects. It’s also very powerful—in facts, there are patients who lose two to four inches from the waistline after one treatment plan.
How it Works
This treatment also uses radiofrequency waves, which are used to heat up the target fat cells. At a certain threshold, these cells are significantly damaged, leading to their death.
The Vanquish system allows for the monitoring of fat tissues while they are being treated; as a result, it can adjust its energy output and therefore destroy fat cells completely. Once they die, they are then expelled through the body’s lymphatic system.
Because this treatment fully destroys fat cells, you don’t have to worry about them coming back. The results of this treatment are permanent, especially if done with regular diet and exercise.
Vanquish is also more capable of treating larger areas at a time. During treatment, it will feel a bit warm on the skin, just like having a heating pad on top. However, the feeling subsides quickly after treatment, and won’t persist.
As with other treatments, results from the BTL Vanquish will vary depending on the person receiving the treatment.
However, that doesn’t mean you won’t notice results at all! On the contrary, the BTL Vanquish shows significant results even after the first treatment, where some patients can lose two to four inches from their waistline.
This treatment normally requires multiple sessions for best results, and the number of sessions you’ll need will only be determined after your consultation. However, most patients average a total of four sessions for the BTL Vanquish.
The best thing about this treatment? The results are permanent, and won’t go away!
Why Get an RF Body Treatment?
Still unsure if radiofrequency therapy is good for you? Wondering why exactly you should invest on one?
Well, here are a few advantages to getting an RF treatment:
One of the best things about the body treatment RF options we offer is the fact that they’re all non-invasive. These treatments don’t hurt nor require surgery to achieve your desired result; you can simply lie down and wait for the radio waves to do their magic on your body.
This is in stark contrast to most weight loss options available in the market, which are normally more painful or uncomfortable.
It Requires No Downtime and Delivers Results Quickly
Because RF body treatments are minimally invasive, they usually don’t require downtime as well. You won’t even need a numbing cream before the treatment, because it’s that painless!
That means your body won’t need extra time to recuperate as well, as compared to other dermatological treatments that need you to rest your skin or body for some time.
You can also find yourself seeing and enjoying the immediate effects of your treatment right away; while results will definitely improve over time, you will still be able to see a significant change on your body after each treatment!
It Destroys Fat Cells Permanently
Radiofrequency treatments work by exerting enough heat or energy to permanently destroy fat cells via apoptosis (or cell death). This means that the fat cells are gone for good—you won’t have to worry about them coming back!
Coupled with proper diet and exercise, you can definitely improve your body shape for good with RF body treatments. You’ll be able to get your money’s worth for a long, long time!
It Helps with Smoothing the Skin
Another great thing about these treatments is that they can help make the skin look better.
For instance, one of the biggest insecurities that people get after pregnancy, significant weight loss, or liposuction, is the sagging skin that can remain.
Well, RF skin tightening can help with that.
Stimulating the production of collagen on the skin can boost its elasticity and make it tighter, which helps with improving the look of sagging skin. If taken prior to liposuction, this boost in elasticity also helps prevent sagging skin in the first place.
Through this, you won’t have to worry about your skin imperfections anymore!
It Improves the Look of Cellulite
Cellulite refers to subcutaneous fat that later causes dimpling of the skin. This is most obvious in women, especially on their hips and thighs.
Cellulite can be difficult to get rid of through normal methods like diet and exercise, but with RF technology, that isn’t the case anymore.
The heat emitted during RF treatments also help in tightening the skin surrounding the subcutaneous fat that cause cellulite, along with actually destroying the fat cells causing these in the first place. The final result is a significant reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
It Can Help with Wrinkles and Other Skin Issues
One of the problems when we age is a lack of collagen. This can lead to multiple skin concerns, the most common of which are fine lines and wrinkles.
But did you know that RF therapy is also effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles?
This is also because of the added collagen in the skin, which happens when RF waves heat up the skin’s dermis. This adds the elasticity that the skin has lost, which helps in softening lines and wrinkles.
In fact, Introlift has our wrinkle-fighting RF treatment, which is the eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation Treatment. You can check this out if you’re interested in doing RF therapy on your face as well!
As you can see, radiofrequency treatments are truly effective in contouring your body and helping you achieve the silhouette of your dreams.
Certain RF treatments are a reliable way to lose weight, too, especially when done regularly and coupled with diet and exercise.
