How does selective radiofrequency for painless fat loss work?

There are various (some more some less effective…) methods for non-surgical fat and circumference reduction around. Here at Eudelo, we chose to work with a combination of selective radiofrequency (this is different from Thermage and Co!) and shock wave (acoustic wave) treatment – this treatment package is called the ‘Eudelo Body’.

The treatment destroys fat cells with heat (don’t worry, this is painless!), which works because fat cells (adipocytes) are very heat sensitive. The exact mechanism of action is that the heat triggers fat cells to commit ‘suicide’ (so-called ‘adipocyte apoptosis’). ‘Selective’ in this context means that the maximum energy is accumulated by the fat tissue as opposed to the skin above or the muscle underneath.

The Eudelo Body also uses acoustic wave technology, namely as its first and third step (in between acoustic wave treatments, selective radio-frequency is utilised to melt down fatty tissue). The first round of acoustic wave prepares the fat tissue to maximize effectiveness of the subsequent radiofrequency, while the second round of acoustic wave helps eliminate the liquefied fat through the lymphatic system, effectively removing it from the body.

One of the reasons I like this treatment so much is that it’s a painless, non-invasive treatment with no downtime, no indentations or demarcations, and a permanent outcome (as the affected fat cells have effectively committed suicide). As an added benefit our combination approach also helps improve collagen production and lymphatic drainage in the treated area.

Suitable body areas are the upper and lower abdomen and flanks as well as the inner and outer thighs.
