RFAL – What is Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction?


Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction is a liposuction technique that uses radio-wave energy to melt away fat while at the same time tightening the skin and body How Does it Work? It starts with a needle puncture over the fat of the problem area. A Radiofrequency transmitting electrode probe is then inserted into the incisions The RF waves are guided through the fat using another electrode (ensures that the temperature of the treatment area does not get too hot) As the RF waves dissolve the fat, it is immediately suctioned out
