What is Indiba and how does it work?
Indiba is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment for fat reduction and skin tightening. Radio frequency (RF) energy is delivered via electrodes that are applied to the skin in a pleasant massaging action. This generates internal heat which breaks down the unwanted fat deposits and also tightens the collagen fibers of the skin. It can be used on the face and various parts of the body.
How many treatments are required and how often?
Normally six to twelve sessions are required, depending on the severity of the condition. The treatments are best done two to three times a week. After completing the course of treatment, the results are maintained by continuing with maintenance treatments on a monthly basis.
How long do the treatments take and are they painful?
Depending on the size of the area treated, the treatment usually takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete. As the thermal energy builds up, there is a sensation of deep and intense warmth, but it is not painful. No numbing cream is required prior to treatment.
Are Indiba treatments safe?
Yes, it is a safe treatment. The RF energy penetrates deep to the surface of the skin, thus avoiding thermal injury to the skin. Hence there is almost no risk of skin burns.
Is there any downtime?
No, there is no downtime with Indiba treatments because it is completely non-invasive and does not cause any redness of the skin.
What else can Indiba be used for?
Indiba is also useful for treating cellulite as the RF energy breaks down the superficial fat and fibrous tissue that causes the dimpled appearance and uneven contour of the skin. In addition, Indiba is helpful as a post liposuction treatment because it helps to smooth contours and tighten skin, thus enhancing the result of the liposuction procedure.
Do I need to go on a diet during a treatment program?
No, you don’t need to go on a diet. The treatment works independently on its own merits and does not rely on simultaneous dieting to achieve its fat reducing effect. However, you should not eat more than you normally do during the treatment program. .
Will Indiba help me lose weight?
Indiba is not specifically a weight loss treatment. The reduction of fat after Indiba treatments could well result in some weight loss, but because there are other factors which determine body weight (such as muscle mass and level of hydration), weight loss is not used as a yardstick to measure the results on this treatment. Instead, the fat reduction and skin tightening should result in reduction in size (e.g. reduction in waistline), improvement in body contour and body shape, and visible skin tightening.
