Most women are looking for a solution for the treatment of tummy rolls, bat wings, bra bulges, cauliflower knees, as well as facial concerns such as double chins, turkey necks and flabby cheeks. The majority of us will always be interested in shortcuts to a better face and body but not everybody is willing to consider the surgical options. Body Renewal brings you a revolutionary new non surgical treatment that can deliver dramatic results in a short space of time. RAIL-THIN. The RAIL- THIN procedure is an acronym for Radiofrequency Assisted Injection Lipolysis - Thermal Heat Is Nice. Injection lipolysis/Lipodissolve is performed before the radiofrequency procedure to diminish localized fat deposits in the affected area using a natural substance called lecithin also known as PC (Phosphatidyl choline).

At Body Renewal we are seeing the best results when the 2 procedures viz the Radiofrequency RF and Lipodissolve are combined in the same procedure viz RAIL – THIN.

The lecithin dissolves the fat cell wall. Radiofrequency such as tripollar or Accent done straight after the injection procedure heats the water content of fat. It is hypothesized that by increasing the water content of subcutaneous fat by the process of injecting liquid lecithin, the RF results are enhanced. Furthermore, bruising, discomfort and oedema are reduced post injection lipolysis if RF is applied to the area.

The long term results of RAIL-THIN are also very dependent on what active ingredients are present in the Lipodissolve Mesotherapy solution. At Body Renewal, we use a combination of Lecithin and award winning growth factors and peptides. The growth factors & peptides present in the cocktail stimulate the production of collagen so that the dermis is strengthened and the texture of the skin improved.
