WHAT IS A RADIOFREQUENCY?

ABOUT THE RADIOFREQUENCY PROCEDURE
A Radiofrequency procedure is a type of medical treatment that uses radiofrequency waves to heat up and destroy abnormal or unwanted tissue in the body. Radiofrequency procedures can be used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, nerve disorders, varicose veins, tumors, and skin lesions. Radiofrequency procedures are usually done in a clinic or a hospital by a trained doctor or technician. The procedure involves inserting a thin needle or a probe into the skin or the body and delivering radiofrequency energy to the target area. The procedure may take from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the type and size of the area being treated. The procedure may require local or general anesthesia, sedation, or pain medication, depending on the patient’s condition and preference. The procedure may cause some discomfort, such as a burning or tingling sensation, but most people tolerate it well.
