Radiofrequency machines are subdivided into 'monopolar' and 'bipolar' type, of which monopolar is more effective.
There are many different types of Radiofrequency machines, but only a handful are medical grade. We use Doubles®
monopolar Radiofrequency machine from Japan. Medical grade Radiofrequency machines are best controlled by professionals.
