Every day, your body is hit with RF energy waves coming from a variety of sources. TV and radio antennas, your cell phone, power lines, and your microwave all emit various levels of RF energy. In the medical world, RF energy can be harnessed and controlled to permeate the body and affect the cells beneath the skin in multiple ways.
The use of RF energy in medical procedures is not revolutionary in its own right. RF Energy has been used in medical procedures for nearly 100 years, treating everything from sleep apnea to muscle relaxation to scalpels that use the heat from RF energy to cut and cauterize tissue.
InMode has taken this safe and longstanding medical practice and revolutionized it by creating a line of products that use RF energy to reduce fat, increase definition, tighten skin and take years off your appearance - without invasive surgeries like facelifts or tummy tucks.
The general principle behind InMode’s RF energy therapies is that electromagnetic waves at a consistent strength can apply heat to cells within the body in a way that augments traditional skin tightening procedures.
For example, traditional liposuction has a tendency to leave skin saggy around the areas where fat was removed. However, with the proper application of RF energy to liquefy fat and improve collagen production, InMode’s BodyTite system can vastly improve upon the results of a traditional liposuction procedure while promising a shorter and easier recovery.
InMode has taken these principles and used them to create a line of skin tightening devices that (when used by the highly skilled board-certified surgeons at Marina) produce results that are superior to traditional skin tightening techniques.
InMode’s BodyTite technology harnesses the power of RF energy to revolutionize body-contouring surgery through a process known as radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL). In the past, body contouring meant the potential of skin removal and liposuction with recovery times and scarring. With BodyTite, Dr. Grant Stevens and his team can eliminate stubborn pockets of fat from around the body with just a few small incisions!
RFAL uses the power of RF energy to coagulate fat and tighten skin while removing the excess fat through lipolysis. Because BodyTite’s RFAL tightens the skin during the procedure, there is no need to excise the skin through additional surgery. This allows a skilled BodyTite practitioner like Dr. Stevens to recreate the positive effects of a facelift or a tummy tuck without the need for scars or downtime.
Like BodyTite, FaceTite uses RFAL to tighten skin, remove excess fat, and increase definition. The difference is that the FaceTite technology is precision-designed to allow skilled surgeons like the ones at Marina Plastic Surgery to target areas of the face and neck specifically, with tremendous results. Patients receive the benefits of a traditional facelift, but without the surgery, scars, or recovery time.
Morpheus 8 takes the power of RF energy and applies it to fractional remodeling. Fractional remodeling is a process where tiny needles and heat are used in combination to kickstart the body’s natural healing processes to tighten skin and create a more youthful appearance.
Morpheus8 allows Marina’s skilled surgeons to target areas of the body that need rejuvenation, stimulate collagen production beneath the surface, and then let those healing properties refresh the skin from within!
As the name implies, EmbraceRF is InMode’s love song for RF energy skin tightening. The EmbraceRF platform gives you the option to select multiple treatments from the BodyTite, Morpheus8, and FaceTite technologies in a way that best fits your body. During your initial one-on-one consultation, you will get to work with Dr. Stevens to resolve your questions about the benefits of RF energy treatments and tailor a plan specific to your body.
The technological improvements to plastic surgery offered by InMode’s new line of RF energy devices are impressive. In the hands of a world-renowned plastic surgeon like Dr. Grant Stevens and his team at Marina Plastic Surgery, they are life-changing.
