Radiofrequency aesthetic treatments have grown in popularity in recent years, thanks to their safety, effectiveness, and versatility. Still, plenty of people don’t know about radiofrequency energy or how it’s used cosmetically.
In this post, you’ll learn about how Mehran Baheri, MD, uses radiofrequency treatments at Baheri Wellness Center in Beverly Hills, California, to treat three common cosmetic issues: stubborn fat, dimply cellulite, and saggy skin. Dr. Baheri uses the Contoura® system by InMode®, a leader in radiofrequency technology.
Completely noninvasive, Contoura uses a special applicator to deliver radiofrequency energy directly to problem areas, gently correcting issues without pain or downtime. Here’s how Contoura can help you achieve your goals so you can feel more attractive and confident.
One system, three benefits
One reason InMode’s radiofrequency treatments are so popular is because they’re so versatile. The Contoura system uses energy modulation combined with adjustable suction and multiple applications to help patients achieve these three key aesthetic goals.
No. 1: Get rid of stubborn fat
Losing weight takes a lot of effort and commitment, and once you’ve reached your goal, it can be really discouraging to find pockets of fat stubbornly left behind. The fact is, some areas of your body just aren’t going to respond to diet and exercise the way other areas do.
Radiofrequency uses noninvasive fat reduction to eliminate stubborn, diet-resistant fat by targeting fat cells with gentle, focused heat energy. As the fat cells heat up, cell walls break down, essentially “melting” your fat so it’s gone for good.
Once the fat is melted, your body does the rest, disposing of the liquefied debris over the following weeks and revealing slimmer, sleeker contours. Contoura’s patented fat-removal technology allows energy delivery to be continually modulated to keep your skin comfortable throughout your treatment.
Contoura also offers two delivery systems: BodyFX® uses a larger applicator for noninvasive fat removal in your buttocks, belly, waist, legs, arms, and torse, while MiniFX® uses a smaller applicator to get rid of stubborn fat in smaller areas, like your neck, chin, and face.
No. 2: Tighten up that flabby skin
Everyone knows loose, sagging skin becomes a lot more common as we get older. That’s because our skin produces a lot less of two important structural components of skin:
- Collagen, which provides a supportive “scaffolding” for skin
- Elastin, which helps skin stay resilient and firm
Contoura’s Plus® system is specifically designed to tighten and firm loose, sagging skin, leaving you looking and feeling sexier, more attractive, and more toned. Plus treatments can be repeated as needed, depending on the amount of sagging and your unique treatment goals.
No. 3: Say ‘bye-bye’ to cellulite
Cellulite is composed of tiny pockets of fat trapped by fibrous bands in your skin. Anyone can get cellulite, but it’s really common among women. In fact, as many as 90% of women develop some cellulite during their lives compared with only 10% of men.
As you get older and your skin loses elasticity, cellulite deposits become a lot more visible, even if you’re slim. Contoura’s cellulite treatment combines fet-melting technology with skin-tightening benefits, melting away fat trapped just below the skin surface, then firming skin for a smoother, sexier appearance.
