Introduction: Skin laxity and excessive subcutaneous fat are growing cosmetic concerns. The objective
of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a novel radiofrequency and ultrasound workstation
for lipolysis, circumference reduction, treatment of skin laxity and cellulite. Materials and methods: Two
hundred seventy-five (235 women and 40 men) patients were enrolled into the study. Each patient
received 3 treatment sessions, each session comprising Ultrasound and Radiofrequency treatments, at
two-week intervals. Some received treatment for the abdomen, some for the thighs and some for both.
Efficacy was assessed accordingly by measuring changes in abdominal circumference, thigh circumfer-
ence and appearance of cellulite. Any adverse effect was noted. Result: Paired t-test between measure-
ments at baseline and 4 weeks after 3rd session was significant amongst all the groups, showing that
most patients showed improvement in abdominal and/or thigh circumferences. No significant adverse
effects were noted during or after the treatment. Conclusion: A combination of alternating hot and cold
module Ultrasound and Radiofrequency technologies is a safe and effective modality for lipolysis and to
treat skin laxity and cellulite.
