Body contouring and reshaping one’s figure has always been a concern of many clients. Whether it is cellulite, fat pockets or just overall lose skin laxity there is a solution. The technological advancements in radiofrequency skin tightening treatments have allowed patients to shape their bodies without going under the knife. At The Laser Image Company Medical Spa in Redondo Beach, we have created unique protocols for RF skin tightening to target numerous anti-aging body concerns as a non-surgical treatment option.
As we age our bodies lose collagen and elastin within the skin making it lose, creepy, and showing dimples. Body RF skin tightening is a naturally regenerative process. Radio frequency skin tightening targets texture, firmness, and overall appearance. It works by safely heating the skin to over 104 degrees which encourages the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to help reduce skin laxity. Body RF energizes the body’s own natural responses by stimulating the lymphatic system to aid in the drainage of unwanted toxins and, strengthen the skin to improve the physique of the target area.
RF skin tightening procedures safely and comfortably minimizes the appearance of cellulite, dimpling, and fatty bulges, while simultaneously tightens skin and improves the contours of the target area(s). The final result of this powerful deep heating is a slimmer, more toned physique.
This noninvasive skin tightening treatment can be used to target problem areas such as arms, abdomen, thighs, hips, and back and the cherry on the top is that it is pain-free and with no downtime. Come into our South Bay Medical Spa for a complimentary consultation to see if this or other tightening treatments we offer are best suited for your concern.

FAQ’s – Body RF Skin Tightening
How does radiofrequency skin tightening work?
The heat from the radiofrequency system causes the collagen fibers to contract, stimulates the body’s collagen production, and thus produces tighter, firmer, and smoother skin. This in turn minimizes the appearance of cellulite dimpling, fatty bulges by simultaneously tightening the skin and improving the body contours.
When to consider doing Cavitation and Body Radio Frequency skin tightening together?
If the concern is fat pockets along with cellulite and loose skin then this combination may be a good option. The ultrasonic cavitation will destroy the fat cell, and the Body RF skin tightening will help metabolize the large fat granules along with strengthening the skin as collagen fibers are produced. Fat cells are reduced, and stubborn cellulite will look less noticeable. Your skin will get tighter, smoother and firmer, and younger-looking.
What areas of the body can you do Body RF?
Radiofrequency skin tightening addresses any problem area with loose crepey skin, where there is skin laxity and the appearance of cellulite is visible. The abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, and knees are common treatment areas. RF skin tightening cannot be on bone or breast tissue.
How long does this skin rejuvenation therapy take?
A single body RF skin tightening procedure takes 20-30 minutes to positively affect skin tone improvement. If the combination of RF skin tightening along with ultrasonic cavitation is recommended then the treatment will be 40-60 minutes depending on the size of the area.
How many radiofrequency skin tightening treatments do I need?
Most clients will see a nice improvement to skin aging after 4-6 treatments, but 8-12 sessions are recommended for optimal results. Often times results can be visible after the first session. The exact number of treatments will vary due to factors such as age, weight, lifestyle, the use of proper skin care, and the area being treated.
How frequently should the RF skin tightening treatments be done?
Treatments can be done weekly if just doing Body RF. If done in conjunction with cavitation, they are done every 3rd day. 72 hours must pass in between the cavitation treatments for the body to eliminate the fat.
How long do the results last from this skin tightening procedure?
The longevity of the outcome has many variables that can shorten or lengthen results. Different tissue structures, treatment areas, ages, metabolism, medications, and challenges with hormones can all play a part. Clients can expect results to last one to two years with proper diet and exercise. Along with a healthy diet and increased physical activity, maintenance treatments can be done every 3 months to help maintain the results.
Is the procedure invasive or painful?
Many other skin tightening treatments can be uncomfortable but not this one. Clients can expect to feel a gentle warming sensation followed by some pinkness in the treated area. No anesthetic is required. There is no cutting and it is 100% non-invasive.
Is there any downtime after RF skin tightening?
No. Considering this procedure is 100% non-invasive it is possible to do this treatment on your lunch break and safely go back to work or resume daily activities directly after.
Is body RF skin tightening safe?
Yes. Our body specialists are trained and specialize in aesthetic, non-surgical body transformation procedures. Their experience along with the gentle warming of the skin tightening machine allows for a thorough safe procedure.
What to think about when starting a series of body radiofrequency skin treatments?
It is important to be committed to the process to get the best outcome. First, drink A LOT of water. A good rule is to cut your body weight in half, that is the minimum number of ounces you should per day! Eat a healthy diet and avoid alcohol, caffeine, and fatty foods. It is also important to moisturize and protect the areas being treated. The sun breaks down skin collagen and that is what we are trying to stimulate, so wear sunscreen.
Is Body radiofrequency skin tightening for everyone?
As with all aesthetic procedures, there are some contraindications but most healthy individuals would be fine to do it. A full assessment and health history will be performed before any procedure is performed. We also offer complimentary consultations to determine the viability of each client’s specific concern.
