Radiofrequency Q & A

What is radiofrequency treatment?

 

Radiofrequency treatment is a noninvasive treatment that Dr. Hakimian uses to dissolve fat and tighten skin. Radiofrequency devices work by delivering energy that converts into heat when it goes below the skin.

Fat dissolution

For fat dissolution, radiofrequency heat destroys fat cells by heating them until they’re damaged. Radiofrequency devices work well on stubborn pockets of body fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. Typical areas like these include:

  • Under your chin
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

Of all of these, radiofrequency treatment is most effective for sculpting your abdomen and thighs.

Skin tightening

To tighten your skin, Dr. Hakimian directs radiofrequency treatment to the deep layers of your skin, where it prompts the skin to produce collagen and elastin. Both of these proteins are essential to skin firmness and tightness.

Radiofrequency treatment also encourages cell turnover, lifts skin, and improves its tone and structure.

Is radiofrequency treatment right for me?

Radiofrequency treatment might be appropriate for you if you:

  • Are healthy
  • Want to tighten your skin or reduce stubborn pockets of fat
  • Don’t have any active infections in the areas you want to treat

 It’s important to note that radiofrequency treatment is not a weight loss plan. It only works well for patients who have already reached and maintained a healthy weight. Radiofrequency treatment for fat dissolution is specifically to targets pockets of fat that you can’t eliminate despite your best efforts.

Is radiofrequency treatment safe?

Yes. In the expert hands of a board-certified and experienced doctor like Dr. Hakimian, radiofrequency treatment is safe. During treatment, you’re exposed to a relatively low amount of radiofrequency waves that does not put you at risk.

Also, radiofrequency heat is low enough that it doesn’t cause skin damage.

Note that because radiofrequency treatment does eliminate water in your cells, you can become dehydrated after treatment. To combat this, drink plenty of water before coming in for your treatment.
