In Mono-polar RF the second contact (also called the return pad) can be placed some distance from the hand held contact and for instance when treating the midriff the return pad is placed on the back at about waist level.
Two types of return pad are provided, a reusable soft return pad and the recommended stick on disposable pads.
Since the energy is flowing through the body, by increasing both the surface cooling and the RF energy the area of treatment can be moved deeper into the body enabling both skin tightening and the removal of excess fat up to 2 to 3 centimeters deep. Fat has a greater resistance to the RF energy hence most of the energy is dissipated in the fat leading to fat cell death without harming the surrounding tissue. The fat is released into the inter cellular space and removed by the lymphatic system.
Three treatment tips are provided of diameters 37mm, 28 mm and 18mm.
