When to Consider Radiofrequency (RF) Fat Burning


Weight loss is not an end goal but a journey; for many, the path to losing weight involves making lifelong changes to their diet, activity levels, and habits. However, sometimes, fat persists on the body despite your best efforts to lose weight. In this case, there are minimally and non-invasive ways to get rid of stubborn fat deposits, including radiofrequency (RF) fat burning.

How Can Radiofrequency Help You Lose Weight?

Radiofrequency (RF) energy is painless but powerful at disrupting and destroying fat cells in problem areas, such as the thighs, buttocks, and lower stomach. This fat-reduction technique heats or cools the treatment site through a procedure called lipolysis.

RF is a safe treatment with low risks of side effects; by directly targeting fat cells and not impacting surrounding skin, it is a safe way to address unwanted fat when traditional weight loss methods are not as effective as desired.

Why Fat Is So Hard to Lose in Some Areas

The fat in most people’s “problem areas” are actually different in composition to other types of body fat; fat stored in the stomach region, lower back, hips, buttocks, and thighs are made of alpha cells, which respond less to weight loss efforts than beta cells.

Alpha fat cells are stored by the body for later use; beta fat is designed to be immediately used.

Because many people have an excess of alpha fat cells when they are overweight, it can be difficult to reduce deposits in certain areas, even when they exercise and follow a healthy diet.

When you have been working hard to lose weight but still find yourself struggling with stubborn fat, it could be time to consider RF and other assistive weight loss treatments.
