SKIN TIGHTENING WITH
TRI-POLAR RADIO FREQUENCY
FDA Approved For Non-Surgical Face-Lifts!
The Better Body Shop, LLC, offers some of the most advanced forms of radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening treatment available.
We use Tripolar RF which is also fractional so the energy is dispersed and distributed more evenly.
Tri-polar Fractional RF Skin Tightening is a non-ablative treatment which means that it doesn’t damage outer layers of skin (the epidermis) but it does, however, cause a specific type of microtrauma to the lower dermal layers of the skin which stimulates elastin and collagen production.
Radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic energy is safe, non-invasive, ad pain-free. RF is a way to tighten skin that may have lost some of its elasticity around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, jawline, mouth and under the chin and neck.

What is RF or radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency or RF skin tightening treatment is an innovative therapy that uses radiofrequency electromagnetic waves (energy waves in the range of about 3 kHz to 300 GHz) to stimulate collagen development deep within the dermal layers of the skin. Radiofrequency re-structures and contracts existing collagen and stimulates fresh collagen production to give noticeable yet natural results. Clients benefit from a healthier, smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
The use of electrical currents and other energy waveforms for medical purposes has been documented for over 100 years. Technology has come a long way in that time, especially in recent years through the basic principles are the same. Non-ablative radiofrequency energy is the newest addition to the treatment options available for skin tightening, cellulite, and fat reduction. It is now possible to deliver RF energy to the deep dermal and sub-dermal layers of the skin, whilst protecting the epidermis (outer layer of the skin). Heating the dermal and subdermal layers of the skin causes microscopic changes to the tissues and collagen contraction, with subsequent collagen remodeling over the months that follow.
The unique combination of processes involved in RF skin tightening provides both an immediate uplifting effect,
followed by further longer-term skin tightening, restructuring, and rejuvenating benefits.
Radiofrequency also gives deep, controlled heating of the fatty layers under the skin, which means that superficial fatty deposits can be broken down and drained through the lymphatic system, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Are radiofrequency RF facials safe?
Radiofrequency has a proven track record and has been shown to be safe. It has been used in neurosurgery, dermatology, cardiology, and ENT for more than 70 years! The treatment is relaxing and pain-free.
How many treatments will I need?
It may be recommended to have a session of radiofrequency skin tightening twice weekly with an average of 6 – 12 sessions in a treatment plan, or a session once every 7-10 days, with an average of 8 sessions in a treatment plan. Treatment plans are determined based on the individual’s needs.
Can anyone have radio frequency RF facial treatments?
Yes, however, there are some contraindications. It cannot be used in patients with pacemakers, metal plates or pins in the treatment area, severe heart disease, connective tissue diseases, vascular disease, uncontrolled diabetes, liver diseases, endocrine disorders, pregnancy and or breastfeeding women.

Patients with a healthy lifestyle that includes proper diet and exercise can
maintain these results without worry the fat will return
Please note there is a minimal of 72 hours required between treatment sessions
Radiofrequency with Ultrasound Cavitation
What is Radiofrequency with Ultrasound Cavitation?
We will utilize body shaping technology through the use of radiofrequency (RF) with cavitation. This particular technology has the ability to provide skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, fat reduction, and body sculpting results. RF with Cavitation heats the epidermal layer of the skin while protecting its integrity. This form of body contouring is not purposed as a weight loss technique; however, this form of body contouring can be utilized for the presence of stubborn fat at various locations of the body. The physiology beyond the treatment is that heat selectively heats the fat cells in the deep and superficial adipose layers; increasing their metabolism, forcing the secretion of fatty acids into the surrounding extracellular space into the circulatory and lymphatic system. The completion of this process results in a reduction in fat and circumference, cellulite reduction, collagen renewal, and skin tightening.
Frequently Asked Questions

On what area of my body can I use Radiofrequency with Ultrasound Cavitation?
Common areas are stomach, thighs, hips, back, chin, and arms. There is no limit to where you can use the Ultrasound Cavitation, but areas with larger amounts of localized fat are likely to see a better result.
Is the Radiofrequency with Ultrasound Cavitation treatment painful?
No. This treatment is painless. In fact, it is very relaxing!
Is the treatment safe?
Yes, because it is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment, it is safe and you will experience no downtime as a result.
How does Radiofrequency with Ultrasound Cavitation remove the fat from my body?
Ultrasound Cavitation emulsifies your fat during the treatment making it easy for your body to expel it through the lymphatic system.
Will the fat lost return?
Only if you allow, with diligent compliance to dietary modification, proper hydration, and exercise; fat is at a decreased risk of returning.
How long are the treatments and how many should I have done?
The treatments last about 60 minutes and we recommend doing them every 72 hours to allow ample time for the fat to expel completely from your body. While you are able to have up to 12 sessions, most clients will do anywhere between 8-12 before achieving their desired results.
Do I need to do anything before or after the treatments?
In order to make your treatments more effective, you will want to be sure to drink plenty of water (at least 1.5 liters) before and after your treatment. We also recommend eating a low-calorie diet and minimizing your intake of carbohydrates and fat for at least 24 hours beforehand. This will help to burn any fatty acid and glucose stores in your body. After your treatment, you will want to do a whole-body vibration session and or light exercise to aid in the expulsion of the fat through your lymphatic system.
Can anyone have the treatment done?
For the most part, anyone looking to reduce fat and improve cellulite is a good candidate for RF and Ultrasound Cavitation. However, individuals with a pacemaker, cardiac or vascular disease, uncontrolled diabetes, liver diseases, endocrine disorders, women who are pregnant and or breastfeeding should not have the treatment done. If you have a medical condition not specifically listed, your contour specialist will advise you to consult your physician and request a medical provider letter of clearance before your treatment.
