Stretch marks, commonly occurring during pregnancy, puberty and rapid weight gain or loss, can be a source of insecurity. To treat this, the radiofrequency (RF) energy delivered targets the epidermis, smoothing out the top layer of skin, reducing the appearance of the stretch marks.
These long streaks appear most commonly on upper arms, breasts, thighs, stomach and buttocks, and are caused by the stretching of the skin—weakening of elastin fibres in the skin which can result in the dermis layer tearing.
Cellulite, the appearance of lumpy, dimpled flesh, is caused when there is build-up of fat and this pushes up against the skin. To treat this, electromagnetic energy (EMS) is delivered, targeting this excess fat, stimulating mild muscle contractions, similar to the act of working out. This decreases the number of fat cells, reducing the appearance of cellulite—allowing you to achieve a toned, trim look.
Treatment for this includes the delivery of radiofrequency (RF) energy, which targets the epidermis, stimulating the production of collagen. At Nuffield Therapeutics, we use our Inmode Evolve and Forma devices to aid in reducing the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. This restores the top layer of the skin, making it appear smooth, and reducing the appearance of the stretch marks. Read more about our Inmode Evolve and Forma techonology.
