What To Expect From Your Body Contouring & Tightening Treatment

When you have any treatment at Omniya, we will always put your health and well-being first. During your consultation for radiofrequency body contouring, we will look at the area that is going to be treated and take a look at your medical history to be sure that this is the best treatment for you. This is also the perfect opportunity for you to ask us any sort of questions that you may have.

On the day of your treatment, and the few days beforehand, we recommend making sure you drink plenty of water. This is important because hydration is a pivotal part of radiofrequency body contouring and tightening. This is going to aid lymphatic drainage, ensuring the very best results. Before the procedure starts, your qualified specialist is going to take photos for your medical records. This is also the best way to assess the results of your treatment. Once you are comfortable and ready to start the treatment, a disposable and sanitised ground pad is going to be applied to the target area. This is then going to be attached to a contouring machine, ensuring the heat (energy) is effectively transferred to the target tissue from the machine.

You will be free to get on with your day as normal once you have had the treatment. Again, make sure you enjoy plenty of water. It is also a good idea to do around 30 minutes of exercise. This is important because it will aid the lymphatic drainage and speed up your metabolism. Of course, the specialist you see on the day is also going to provide you with all of the information you need about aftercare.

What Areas Of The Body Are Suitable For This Treatment?

Neck – This type of treatment requires the radiofrequency machine to be operated at a lower temperature than normal when used on the neck. This is because the skin on the neck is thinner when compared to the skin on the rest of your body.

Buttocks, thighs, and abdomen – Radiofrequency treatments are effective when it comes to contouring the body in these areas. They can also help when it comes to lowering skin laxity in postpregnancy or love handles.

Arms – You can tighten loose skin on the arm with radiofrequency. The arms are notoriously difficult to tone, which is why this treatment comes so highly recommended. However, you may need to have a number of sessions before you notice a considerable improvement.

Knees – This treatment can also use radiofrequency in order to tighten skin that is sagging around the knee. This is an area where supreme caution is required because the skin is thin in this area. There is also a lower number of sebaceous glands. These are glands that waterproof the skin through lubrication. This is why it is so important to choose a practitioner with care, and of course, you have nothing to worry about with Omniya.

Radiofrequency skin tightening on the body can also help when it comes to lowering the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks, arms, thighs, and abdomen.

It has also been proven to be exceptionally popular with clients who are looking to firm the skin around their neck. Turkey neck is a term used to describe sagging skin in this area, and a lot of people have noted positive results when dealing with this condition. This is because radiofrequency treatment will improve the texture and smoothness of the skin, renew contours, and lower sagging in the neck.

Does Radiofrequency Hurt?

Most people will agree that the treatment does not feel painful at all. In fact, the sensation is one of slight heat. The radiofrequency is going to get to temperatures of up to 40 degrees. To limit any fluctuations, this is going to be monitored throughout. You ought to expect no discomfort during your treatment session, and there may only be slight redness in the treated area. Some people will even use the session to catch up with emails on their phone or check-in with work.

When Will I See Results?

You are going to notice a slight change in your skin right away – after your first treatment. After more treatments, this is going to get better and better. Your lax skin will be more toned and a lot firmer. You will look younger and healthier as a consequence. This can work wonders for your confidence.

In terms of how long the results are going to last, again, this depends on the treatment area and the number of treatments you decide to have. The enhancements in skin quality can last anywhere from a few months, to a year, to even longer. Your lifestyle and diet are also going to play a role in how long the effects of body contouring last.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

We always advise patients that this will depend on the part of your body that we are treating. This is why we always start every treatment with a consultation. It gives us the perfect opportunity to assess the treatment area and give our recommendations regarding how many treatments you need and whether or not we believe this is the best treatment for you. In most cases, we tend to recommend a series of around eight treatments, which should be roughly one week apart. You should typically see the best effect around two months after you have had your final treatment.
