Going under the knife used to be the only way to significantly tighten saggy skin. At Body Catalyst we offer two advanced non-surgical skin tightening treatments, HIFU and radio frequency, which are quickly becoming the preferred way to tighten up loose skin caused by ageing, pregnancy, weight loss and even genetics. Both non-surgical treatments, HIFU and Radio Frequency achieve very similar outcomes to surgery without any of the pain, risk or downtime and guarantee amazing results without having to resort to invasive surgery. These treatments are used to treat loose or sagging skin in various parts of the body such as the face, neck, décolletage, underarms, abdomen and legs. HIFU however, also targets stubborn fat on certain areas.
Two of the most extensively used non-surgical treatments are HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) and Radio Frequency (RF).
HIFU (High Intensity Frequency Ultrasound)
Radio Frequency (RF)
Radio Frequency is another method of non-surgical skin tightening. It involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of the skin. Radio Frequency waves heat the dermis to a temperature ranging between 38o to 44o degrees celsius. This heat stimulation results in the production of collagen fibres.
RF is used to treat sagging and loose skin as well as wrinkles and fine lines, on the face and body.
The process usually takes about an hour or less and is completely painless.
With no major side effects and affordable prices, these non-surgical treatments are fast replacing the traditional surgical procedures used to treat body fat in the past.
