What Is RadioFrequency Body Contouring?
As you age, your body's natural supply of collagen and elastin begins to decrease, causing wrinkles, lines, and droopy skin. Significant weight loss can lead to drooping skin as well. At Dermatology Center of Dallas, we perform nonsurgical body contouring at our facility in Dallas, TX. Our experienced team utilizes the innovative RF system by Thermage® to help patients tighten and smooth the skin on the arms, back, buttocks, thighs, abdomen, face, and more. Nonsurgical body contouring works by delivering steady heat energy deep into the skin layers to encourage new collagen growth, helping you turn back the hands of time without surgery.

How RF Body Contouring Works
RF body contouring with Thermage is ideal for men and women who wish to contour loose skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the face or body without undergoing surgery. This treatment can be used for multiple parts of the face and body, which can include the abdominal region, neck, upper arms, and outer thighs. The treatment is performed at our Dallas, TX office within 30 – 60 minutes. First, a gel will be massaged over the treatment area before your technician uses the RF device to deliver targeted energy into your skin. You may feel a warm sensation, but the treatment is generally not painful. After your session, you can leave our office and go back to your day, although the treated skin may appear red or swollen for a brief period. As collagen production increases, you should begin to notice tighter, firmer skin develop over the next 2 – 6 months with results lasting as long as two years.
What can I expect after the procedure?
There is normally no required recovery time after nonsurgical body contouring, and many people experience very few after effects. You can expect to have redness, inflammation, and bruising in the affected sites; however, these issues can resolve over a few days. Depending on your unique curves and the location being treated, you might experience notable changes quickly. Typically, the majority of people should see a dramatic reduction in the circumference of their addressed region over a period of 3 – 6 months. Once the body rids the fat tissue, it won't reappear. Although, it's vital to maintain a healthy weight, as rapid weight gain can alter the results.
