Non-surgical reduction of localized adiposity using radio frequency
True beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes
There are numerous techniques and technologies, which help to reduce the subcutaneous fat causing cell death. The radio frequency, instead, induces a reduction of the fat volume contained in each single cell. A suitably shaped and conformable applicator is placed in few centimeters from the treating area. Then starts radio frequency emission, and the patient can feel only a pleasant sensation of warm in the treated area.

The equipment emits radio frequency 27,12 MHz that is highly absorbed by the adipose tissue cells (they are more responsive than skin or muscle cells). The emitted energy causes the adipocytes to vibrate or oscillate at a high rate which generates frictional energy (heat). The frictional energy induces fat resorption and even leads to apoptosis of some small part of adipocytes. Device synchronizes treatment energy with the change in the patient’s impedance in order to minimize energy loss and achieve a better clinical outcome.
