Introduce the perfect treatment for the winter months

Introduce the perfect treatment for the winter months

It’s that time of year again.. the time of year where we are bundled up and counting down the few days left before the nicer weather approaches. Along with anticipating the change of seasons, also comes the anticipation in the change of our wardrobes; T-shirts, tank tops, shorts, and do we dare say swim suits. With that said, this is the perfect time to reduce wardrobe anxiety by introducing your clients to Radio Frequency (RF) body treatments! This treatment is indicated for: body contouring, inch loss, skin tightening and the reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

How does the treatment work?

The heat that is produced by the technology, is typically described as very comfortable. This heat is a key component of the treatment as it stimulates a few actions within our bodies. First, it causes a contraction of collagen fibers, and second it stimulates new collagen in the skin. Therefore, RF aids in improving the textural appearance of the skin and skin tightening.

In addition to the above, the RF heat, depth of current and massaging motions done throughout the treatment, allow for some filtration of accumulated liquid to pass through the fat cell, to the lymphatic system where our bodies will then eliminate it through our excretory system. Radio Frequency treatments, therefore, will assist in reducing the size of the fat cells leading to inch loss in the areas treated.

When working with the body and improving certain areas, such as: textural concerns, laxity, contouring, inch loss, etc., it is very important to consider different factors and to come up with an action plan to obtain the best treatment outcomes. In the next few points, you will learn about what your clients’ involvement should be, and the procedures that the equipment operator should perform during each treatment.

Clients’ are often very enthusiastic when having Radio Frequency applications done. With that said, it is important that they get involved by doing the following:

  • Come in weekly for the duration of their treatment series.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Kick the junk food and participate in healthy eating habits.
  • Drink 2-3 litres of water daily.
  • Dry brush the treatment area 2-3 times a week.
  • Keep the treatment area hydrated by applying an appropriate serum/moisturizer daily.

By participating in the above, clients will only enhance the effects of the technology, ultimately leading to a more satisfied client.

As an RF operator, it is important to remember that along with ensuring the initial consultation is properly executed and all clinical forms are completed, that we also participate in the following procedures before/during/after each treatment:

  • Always update the clinical documents and check to see if there have been any changes to the medical health history form.
  • Measure and record the weight of the client by having them step onto a scale.
  • Do two measurements in the treatment area (measuring the circumference) and record the measurements.
  • Take photographs of the treatment area.
  • Constantly measure the temperature of the treatment area using the supplied IR thermometer. Ensure that a therapeutic temperature of 40-43˚c is achieved during the entire time of application.
  • Reiterate pre & post treatment client compliance, including their participation, during the treatment series.

It is important that you follow the proper procedures and protocols in order to deliver the best outcomes and safest treatments for your valued clients’.
