Dual Layer Radio Frequency for Cellulite Reduction

At Radová Lifestyle, we use vShape advanced radio frequency technology to deliver heat to the deep and superficial levels simultaneously. This can be the most effective non-invasive treatment for cellulite. It’s a relatively painless treatment using RF energy to help shrink fat cells. Radio frequency treatment has minimal downtime.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite occurs when fat bulges out between the connective tissue strands under your skin creating dimples and dents on the surface. Study after study has found that treatments designed to 'stimulate blood supply' or 'invigorate' the cellulite do not work.


That’s because cellulite is not caused by toxins in the body nor is it caused by a malfunctioning lymphatic system. It occurs when fat pushes through layers of collagen fibers, or connective tissue, under the skin. Fibrous cords connect the skin to the underlying muscle. Fat lays between them. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling.

Cellulite most often appears in the thighs, buttocks, upper arms and belly. Cellulite is also more common with aging, when the skin loses its elasticity.


How Radio Frequency Can Reduce Cellulite

To reduce cellulite you need to reduce the fat and change the internal structure of the skin. Unlike lasers that concentrate on the upper dermis, radio frequency energy penetrates deeper into the skin to the subcutaneous layers causing tightening to the underlying tissue structure.


Dual Layer Radio Frequency delivers controlled heating to the fatty layers under the skin. This can result in tissue tightening and increased blood circulation, and fatty deposits are drained through the lymphatic system, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Reducing Cellulite Through Diet & Exercise

Diet and exercise alone won't determine whether you’ll get cellulite or not, but fitness, eating a healthy plant-based diet and drinking lots of water will keep your connective tissue strong and supple.

Countering cellulite by losing weight through diet and exercise will help, but its effectiveness depends on your skin’s elasticity. If your skin isn’t resilient enough it can sag and make dimples look even worse. Radová Lifestyle’s radio frequency treatment is a great compliment to healthy eating and fitness because it helps reduce cellulite while restoring elasticity in your skin.

Common Cellulite FAQ's

Is Liposuction Effective For Cellulite?*

Liposuction is not the best answer. It’s not very successful in treating cellulite and may actually worsen the appearance of dimpled skin. Liposuction can even make fat distribution more uneven, making the appearance of cellulite even worse.

Why Is Cellulite Worse In Women Than Men?*

The main reason is that women, in general, have more body fat than men, particularly around the thighs and bottom. Women have a slightly different skin make-up to men, and the distribution of connective tissue varies between the sexes. But that said, men can, and do, develop cellulite.

Do Topical Creams & Solutions Help Cellulite?*

Many studies have found that prescription or over-the-counter creams and solutions do not permanently reduce cellulite. Those that contain retinoids may provide temporary effects by creating a thicker skin helping to cover the bumps for a short time.

Can Smoking Affect Cellulite?*

Yes. Cigarette smoking can reduce blood flow and weakens the formation of collagen. This can cause the connective tissue to stretch and fat bulges through the layers of collagen fibers more easily.

Is Radio Frequency Better Than Lasers For Cellulite Reduction?*

Laser energy scatters light into the upper layers of the skin, making it difficult to deliver sufficient and consistent heat into the deeper layers without damaging the skin's surface. Radio frequency can penetrate deeper into the dermis and subcutaneous layers, causing tightening and changing the internal structure of the skin.

*Individual results may vary.

How Long Will The Results Last?

Radio frequency has been used for several years to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. While the results are not permanent, advanced radio frequency treatments are effective for up to 2 years and beyond.* Individual results may vary.
