Today’s patients are more concerned about treating the early signs of aging and unwanted fat than ever before. Women and men alike are looking for faster, less invasive procedures with little, if any, downtime that can reduce their wrinkles and improve their figure.
Dr. Charles Lively performs RF therapy, the latest advancement in nonsurgical, pain free therapy for the reduction of targeted fatty deposits, skin tightening, and sundamaged and/or wrinkled skin anywhere on the face and body for patients in Odessa, the Permian Basin, Midland, Pecos, Andrews, Penwell, Notrees, Garden City, Monahans, Kermit Abilene, Sweetwater, Lubbock and throughout West Texas.
RF therapy is an FDA approved device that offers a non-surgical solution using radio frequency (RF) energy for fat reduction and tissue tightening anywhere on the body. The procedure uses safe radio waves to heat your skin and targeted fat cells. This thermal energy speeds up the metabolic activity of the fat cells causing them to shrink. At the same time it stimulates and strengthens the collagen network which improves skin laxity and texture.
RF therapy is one of the first systems that promises actual circumferential reduction. By combining RF energy with cooling, we can treat all areas of the body where stubborn fatty deposits persist or tighter, firmer skin is desired. While the RF energy is heating the dermis, patients remain relaxed and comfortable as the system’s digital thermometer provides real-time monitoring and constant feedback as to the skin’s temperature, thus ensuring a comfortable and safe treatment.
What areas respond to RF Therapy?
The most frequent areas treated with RF Therapy in men are the “love handles”, breasts, abdomen, face, jowls and neckline. In women they include: face, jowls, neck, décolletage, arms, “bra fat”, thighs, hips, breast, buttocks, stomach, and knees.
Choosing RF Therapy
During your consultation, you will want to explain the level of skin improvement & shaping you hope to achieve with treatment. We will examine your skin and your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for RF Therapy. Together we will discuss your expectations and decide on the best treatment for you. Photographs may be taken for reference to compare your results.
During your procedure the computer-controlled radio frequency delivery device is guided over the treatment area. You will feel a deep heating sensation as the Exilis RF energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. The energy causes the collagen support tissues to remodel and tighten. The underside of the applicator provides cooling to your skin’s surface, and the built-in thermometer lets the operator maintain constant temperatures keeping you more comfortable during the treatment.
RF therapy is performed in our office. The procedure takes from 15 – 30 minutes depending upon the size of the area.
Why choose RF Therapy over other procedures?
Our patients love it because skin-tightening and body shaping with RF energy means:

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments for you depends on the condition and the area to be treated as well as your desired results. During your consultation, we will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments that are recommended to achieve your desired results. Keep in mind that the results from RF Therapy are gradual and may take from 2-4 months to maximize the effects of the treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
After Dr. Lively performs RF Therapy you may notice some mild redness in the treatment area. This usually disappears in a few hours. You may resume normal activities immediately. Patients are also asked to increase water intake and to engage in light physical activity like walking to maximize cosmetic results
