What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring is a treatment that reshapes your body to create a more contoured and slimmer appearance.
Radiofrequency is a form of body contouring and has been used in the last three years for body contouring. It works by heating the surface of the body to tighten any loose skin instantly, and it also targets fatty tissue to help with the break down of fatty deposits. This makes it a perfect option for men and women with loose skin after weight loss, those who suffer from cellulite, or those who need a confidence boost. The treatment can be used to target cellulite on the arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
The Radiofrequency energy treatment is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment for either the body or face for the early signs of sagging or loose skin. It’s a perfect option for those people who either don’t want or don’t believe they are old enough to have a body contouring surgery procedure.
Why Should I Have Contouring?
Body contouring is a treatment perfect for those patients who suffer from any loose skin after rapid weight loss, or those who suffer from cellulite in different areas of their body.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency is a body contouring that is applied via a “handpiece” that is moved across the areas of the body that wished to be targeted. This handpiece works by directing a radiofrequency current to heat the skin to around 40 degrees. The Radiofrequency system is different from other body contouring procedures as it offers a cooling device to help make the experience more comfortable for the patient.
Is The Treatment Safe?
The treatment is completely safe for patients. It’s had full MHRA and FDA approval alongside rigorous testing. Thanks to the unique cooling system of the Radio frequency system, the patient does not feel affected by the heating treatment. Most patients don’t experience any form of discomfort so there is no need for any form of anaesthesia. To help ensure therapeutic results, skin temperature is also measured throughout the procedure.
How Effective Is The Treatment?
The full effects of the body contouring treatment will not be visible for up to two to three months. However, the treatment will cause instant changes due to contraction of the collagen fibres. A high percentage of patients notice an instant improvement in their contours.
How Long Will The Results Last?
The results of body contouring can last up to 16 months to 2 years. Whilst one or two treatments can produce great results, it’s important that you undertake follow-up procedures to maintain your body’s youthful appearance and your newfound confidence.
Am I Suitable?
This treatment is suitable for both men and women who suffer from loose skin after rapid weight loss, or those who suffer from cellulite on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks or arms. If you wish to undertake the procedure, it’s important you are in overall good health, and that you have realistic expectations of what the results will bring. It’s also important you have a positive outlook.
The treatment is unsuitable for those who have metal plates, pins, or pacemakers. The procedure also needs to be avoided by those who are suffering from diseases associated with connective and muscular tissue, including severe heart disease. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also avoid the procedure.
