Static type monopolar 1-MHz radiofrequency may help reduce fat and tighten skin in the lower face, according to research published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine.
“We objectively observed a volumetric change of average 2.7ml without any complication. The study indicated that this treatment is safe and very effective in fat reduction, and so has a potential for becoming one of the standard non-invasive treatments for the facial contour,” said lead author Jun Sugawara, MD, PhD, a guest researcher at the Department of Plastic Surgery of Yokohama City University Medical Center in Minami-ku, Yokohama, Japan..
Researchers performed truSculpt primarily in the nasolabial fold and buccal area weekly for five consecutive weeks, and evaluated the effects for fat reduction and tightening before each treatment and for 2 months after the treatment using VECTRA 3D® for imaging.
The manuscript titled, “Application for lower facial fat reduction and tightening by static type monopolar 1-MHz radio frequency for body contouring” was selected as Editor’s Choice in the October 2017 issue of the journal.Next Story
