How the human factor affects the effectiveness of radiofrequency / cavitation treatments

  • Radiofrequency and ultrasound cavitation are the two most powerful technologies available today for skin tightening, cellulite reduction and localised fat removal
  • The effectiveness of radiofrequency treatment for cellulite reduction depends on several factors, as we have previously explained. One of the most important factors is the human factor, i.e. therapist skill, knowledge and experience.
  • RF treatments come in all shapes and sizes and can range from ineffective to impressively effective. A skilled therapist that uses the right type of machine can produce the required results, while a not-very-knowledgeable operator and/or inferior equipment will produce minimal results.
  • Most people depend on reviews and "before and after photos" when assessing a cosmetic treatment, but those methods are not always dependable, as reviews can be faked and "before and after photos" can be manipulated on Photoshop or, more simply, with clever lighting.
  • So it is important to ask the right questions to the person who is selling you the treatment and decide by the answers you receive whether you would like to invest your hard-earned cash on them
  • Does the therapist understand the physics of those treatment and gives you science-based answers, or do you get the usual talk about fat-melting (there is no such things as "fat melting" in the body), toxins (toxins are not an essential factor in cellulite) and other waffle?
  • Moreover, having a knowledgeable therapist that can answer your questions about cellulite, diet and exercise properly is an added bonus as it can help motivate you to make the most of your treatment by changing your lifestyle for the better.
  • There are fantastic therapists and great RF and cavitation equipment out there, but there are also ignorant operators and low-spec equipment, so doing your research is essential in order to find the right combination of excellent therapist and equipment.
