Goodbye bulging knees and turkey neck.
Precise skin tightening and fat reduction for those little, nagging areas.
What is RFAL?
Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (or RFAL for short) is a relatively new, FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure in which thermal energy is used to remove unwanted fat and tighten the skin.
Here’s a quick overview of each treatment:
AccuTite is the smallest minimally invasive RF contraction device out there. Designed by InMode, AccuTite is used to treat delicate areas of the face including the nasolabial folds (smile lines or laugh lines), lower face, and neck. AccuTite also provides pinpoint accuracy for treating the brows and the periorbital area (e.g. the area between a patient’s upper and mid-face). Some patients use AccuTite to correct the appearance of aging hands and knees.
How does RFAL work?
Before the procedure, the provider injects the patient with local anesthesia. (CSLC offers those who need additional comfort in-office nitrous oxide or “laughing gas.”) Once the treatment area is numb, the provider creates a small skin opening (about the size of a needle) and inserts a radiofrequency-transmitting electrode. This device features multiple built-in sensors to ensure that the treatment area doesn’t get too hot.
Once the device is properly inserted, the provider moves it back and forth to evenly heat the area, melt stubborn fat cells, and tighten sagging skin. One session takes about 30-45 minutes, from start to finish.
Post-procedure, the provider may prescribe an oral antibiotic. Patients who combine their RFAL treatment with Morpheus8 can expect to see puffy, swollen skin for three to 10 days following the procedure, and sometimes mild bruising. Patients can reduce post-procedure bruising by avoiding Aspirin, Ibuprofen, fish oil, and Naproxen one week prior to treatment.
