How RFAL works

1

Fast, Comfortable, in-office treatment

After deciding the area(s) to be treated, we make you comfortable, which can be your choice of a locally injected anesthetic, or in-office nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), which offers relief in seconds and wears off after 30 minutes.

During the 20 to 30-minute in-office procedure, your treatment area is heated to the optimal temperature to liquefy fat and tighten sagging skin, and fat may be gently suctioned away with a syringe.

2

No downtime, minimal recovery

Post RFAL, your treatment area(s) may be sore to touch for about 10 days. If you have added Morpheus8 microneedling RF to your treatment, expect more pink and puffy skin for 3-10 days depending on the assertiveness of the treatment.

Bruising is expected. To lessen bruising, stop taking Aspirin, Ibuprofen, fish oil,  vitamins, and Naproxen 1 week prior to the treatment.

You may be given an antibiotic ointment for the small incisions or an oral antibiotic to take as directed.

Normal activities are encouraged, however, use caution if introducing exercise as swelling may increase.

Permanent results that keep improving

Expect to see subtle tightening and contouring in 1-2 weeks, 60-70% more tightening and contouring by week 6, and continued tightening and contouring up to 12 months post-treatment.

Results are virtually permanent. As long as you don’t gain significant weight, the fat will not return. The contracted skin will last for years and longer if you protect your investment with suggested maintenance treatments.

The science behind RFAL

After local anesthesia, a pinpoint incision is made (on the treatment area) to insert a probe that’s tipped with a radiofrequency wave emitter under the skin. The handpiece includes a mirroring external probe, which helps essentially “sandwich” the treatment area with internal and external tissue heating. (Think of it like a tiny hair flat iron that won’t burn you, and one part of the iron carefully inserted under your skin.)

Then, the handpiece is moved back and forth, and the entire area is evenly heated to the  optimal temperature to melt fat and tighten sagging skin. Multiple built-in sensors monitor both tissue thickness and skin and fat temperature to ensure exceptional results with minimal risk.

Depending on the size of the area and the amount of fat, some suction of the fat may be performed, or the fat will be left to metabolize naturally.
