Tone Your Tummy: Reprogram Your Post-Pregnancy With Radiofrequency Treatment

As a new parent, you’ve experienced the incredible miracle of delivering a precious new life. In this state of wonderment, it’s easy to get lost in the joy of your family’s new addition, but also the hectic life and stress that comes with.
Though a new child is a beautiful experience one should relish in, it does take a toll on not only the body, but the mind of a woman. That once tight body has been stretched out, and you find yourself living inside an almost unfamiliar body.
As women, we are almost trained by society that we are to accept and embrace these changes, and that is true - we should love ourselves regardless.
But we shouldn’t feel forced into being self-conscious or embarrassed about our figures either. If you are struggling with postpartum depression or struggling with the way your post-pregnancy body feels or looks, you’re not alone and shouldn’t feel badly.
One solution is Radiofrequency Treatment, which can be used anywhere on the body to tighten and firm areas where skin has been stretched or is drooping.
The device uses radio waves to heat up metal plates attached to the head of the device. It is then dragged over the surface of the skin, using the combination of heat and suction to create “damage” under the surface of the skin. This creates collagen buildup, which leads to a firm, toned skin.
Slight redness will occur temporarily, but goes away within x amount of time. The treatment for larger portions of the body, like the stomach, legs and arms can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Results appear gradually over the course of 4-6 sessions.
