Bye bye cellulite
Hello RF Sculpt
WHAT IS RF SCULPT?
Many people want a more toned form and a shapely silhouette, but sometimes diet and exercise cannot give you the results that you desire or deserve. RF Sculpt can help contour the body, slim areas such as the abdomen or thighs, smooth away your stretch marks, and diminish the appearance of cellulite via safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment. RF Sculpt will allow you to achieve a beautiful shape that will make you both look and feel effortlessly stunning. With little downtown and little if any pain, this treatment uses advanced aesthetic technology to sculpt a beautiful you.
HOW DOES RF SCULPT WORK?
RF Sculpt relies on Radio Frequency (RF) energy, as well as infrared light energy and therapeutic suctioning to gently sculpt targeted areas and smooth dimpled cellulite in the skin. While the relaxing suctioning coaxes the skin closer to the energy source within the handpiece and massages the fibrous bands in the dermis that comprise the cellulite, the combined powers of infrared and RF energies heat fat and connective tissues to promote elasticity, collagen production, and fat reduction. This body contouring treatment is successful due to the combined deep dermal heating and suctioning of localized areas.
WHAT CAN RF SCULPT TREAT?
RF Sculpt is able to treat any part of the body that requires contouring, cellulite reduction, or stretch mark removal, but it is predominantly used on the abdomen and thighs for optimum benefits. Treatment of these areas exhibits a lovely silhouette. Further, any and all skin types are welcome to revel in the potential benefits of RF Sculpt.
However, it is important to note that RF Sculpt is not a weight loss treatment, but exclusively a body-sculpting treatment. Therefore, the ideal candidate is a client with mild to moderate cellulite who wants to address problem areas that cannot be addressed with diet and exercise.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM RF SCULPT TREATMENT?
It is comforting to know what to expect with a treatment that includes penetrating radio frequency energies, so we have detailed pre- and post- treatment instructions below so our clients can come into their appointments confident and ready.
It is highly recommended to consult with one of our aesthetic professionals here at Lavande prior to booking your RF Sculpt appointment, where a personal evaluation synthesizing your medical history and aesthetic goals should be completed. This is to determine the best course of action for your aesthetic needs, determine what treatment is best for your skin type, and to prepare you for your what is to come. We here at Lavande want to make sure you are a candidate for this treatment as well as confident about your decision to proceed.
In preparation, we may ask that you abstain from taking or applying any harsh medications (such as Accutane or Retinol), so as to avoid certain side effects. We will also ask that you refrain from getting direct sun exposure for about a week prior to treatment.
The treatment area will be examined by our skilled and knowledgeable practitioner before treatment, and private “before” pictures will be taken for comparison purposes and kept in your profile. Once examined, the treatment area will be prepared by being cleaned with antiseptics.
WHEN WILL I SEE TREATMENT RESULTS?
Clients should see some improvement (smoothing of cellulite, reduction of circumference via fat) to the treated area almost immediately following treatment. However, it will take about 6-8 weeks for newly produced collagen and elastin to become visible. Treatments should be pursued in a series every week or 2 to attain the best results.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
After a succession of treatments, RF Sculpt treatments should be performed about 3-4 times a year in order to maintain desirable aesthetic results. An ideal situation would be maintenance of results via aggressive exercise, but this is not always a realistic alternative in our busy world.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
RF Sculpt is a rather comfortable treatment, as clients report little if any discomfort associated with treatment. This is due to the constant suctioning sensation of the handpiece, which has been compared to receiving a deep tissue massage; therefore, RF Sculpt is quite relaxing as far as treatment goes. Clients will feel heat during treatment however, but levels can be adjusted according to client comfort levels.
Preparation includes avoiding direct sun exposure for a week or 2 prior to treatment, abstaining from taking or applying harsh products (such as Accutane or Retinol), and avoiding bloodthinners. These precautions will ensure that the recovery process is smooth and devoid of unwelcome side effects.
Clients will be able to resume daily activities immediately following treatment, as there is little to no downtime for recovery. There might be slight redness and a warm sensation at treatment sites immediately after, but these usually subside within hours.
Clients should actively avoid direct sun exposure, and be sure to apply a strong sunscreen at all times.
It is highly recommended to have multiple treatments, 3-6 sessions at least, to attain optimal results. While a single session may impart visibly noticeable results, most clients will not have met their aesthetic goals with just a single session.
Our knowledgeable providers here at Lavande Spa can sit down with you and create a regimen that is right for you in order to make sure you achieve and maintain that flawless shape you’re looking for.
Side effects may or may not be experienced following RF Sculpt, but are not abnormal. Normal side effects include redness, slight swelling, inflammation, lingering heat, soreness, and perhaps even minimal bruising. Less common side effects include burns, scabbing, or blistering, but these are very unlikely considering the professional technique of our providers. Please contact us here at Lavande Spa if you have any concerns about side effects.
