What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is created when stubborn fat deposits cause a wrinkled or dimpled appearance due to connective tissue pulling the skin closer to the body. Cellulite can often be difficult to get rid of, no matter how healthy your diet and exercise habits are. To help patients reduce cellulite and achieve a toned, smooth appearance, we offer Thermage® treatments.
How is Cellulite Treatment Performed?
Your cellulite treatment will depend on the technique being used. Thermage® is a gentle radiofrequency treatment that stimulates collagen production to trigger skin tightening, fighting cellulite and wrinkles. This is a comfortable treatment that has a unique cooling component, keeping the skin safe and cool.
This procedure is also comfortable, but is often compared to the feeling of a tough workout. The duration of each treatment will depend on the size and number of areas treated to achieve your desired results.During your consultation, we will consider your cosmetic goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan that will deliver the best results possible. At this time, we will recommend the best procedure for you based on your specific treatment goals.
Is There Downtime After Cellulite Treatment?
Thermage® offers a safe treatment with no downtime, allowing patients to resume work and other regular activities immediately after their appointment. Patients may experience minor side effects like soreness or sensitivity in the treated areas, but these fade within days of treatment.
When Will I Notice Results from Cellulite Treatment?
Patients typically begin to notice results from cellulite treatment within a few weeks. After two to three months, more significant results will be seen as the skin tightens. Depending on the treatment used, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to deliver the desired results.
