What is Radio Frequency Lipolysis?
Radio frequency lipolysis is a procedure which uses a radio frequency to heat the fat without an instrument making physical contact with the patient. The applicator heats from a distance of one centimeter from the skin. Fat cells are preferentially heated without impacting other types of cells in the skin or other structures. A common type of radio frequency lipolysis is Vanquish.
Benefits of Lipolysis
Benefits of radio frequency is its ability to reduce both fat and tighten the skin by directing energy to target collagen especially when diet and exercise has failed. Radio Frequency is also ideal for the age-old problem of spot reduction. The treatment program is designed to improve body shape and reduce unwanted fat from areas such as face and neck, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, knees, calves, ankles and male breasts.
How does it work?

One of the newest fat reduction technologies is radio frequency. Radio Frequency delivers energy to the areas of fat by driving controlled heat deep within the fat cells and subsequently destroys them. Radiofrequency is a very versatile procedure that can be used on any area of the body – from large areas like the abdomen to very small areas such as the chin – with the same degree of success. It uses sound waves to vibrate and cause mechanical disruption of fat cells causing them to break down.
