Cynosure radiofrequency technology can help you reduce the appearance of cellulite in just a few easy treatments.
Cellulite can be very frustrating. No matter how hard you try to eat the right foods and exercise on a regular basis, the problem remains. Finally, there’s a solution for cellulite that makes a real difference. Our non-invasive cellulite treatments use radial pulse technology to deliver acoustic shockwaves into the underlying tissue of the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Prior to any treatment, patients will need to undergo a consultation to determine whether they would benefit from this non-invasive cellulite treatment.
During the treatment, specialised handpieces are used to deliver acoustic shockwaves to reduce the appearance of cellulite. These shockwaves help strengthen the collagen structure of the skin as well as the underlying connective tissue. It also increases blood circulation in that area, which improves the metabolism of fat cells.
The areas that can be treated include the upper arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs.
The average treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete and patients can expect to see a visible difference after two to three sessions. Since the treatment is non-invasive, no downtime is required, so you are free to resume your normal routine.
No, the procedure is virtually painless. Most patients report that sessions feel very similar to a hot stone or deep tissue massage. No anaesthetic or numbing creams are required.
A series of treatments is recommended for visible results, with touch-ups every 6 months thereafter. Your provider will help you come up with a treatment plan that meets your requirements.
Treatments are typically performed in less than 30 minutes. However, treatment time can vary from patient to patient based on specific goals and treatment areas. The more areas you want to treat, the longer your session will be.
There is no downtime associated with non-invasive cellulite treatments. This means you can return to normal activities immediately after your session. Even though there are no restrictions in terms of sunlight exposure, it is always advisable to use broad-spectrum SPF on a daily basis.
The cellulite reduction process takes time and at least two to three sessions are required to see a noticeable difference.
Treatments are recommended for anyone looking for a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite and a smoother, more youthful look. Sessions are ideal for mild to moderate forms of cellulite. Tell your clinician if you have a pacemaker, defibrillator implant, metal implant, or auto-immune disease, as the treatment may not be right for you. Patients should also be willing to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to prolong their results. It should be noted that this is not a weight-loss treatment. Patients should be at a healthy weight (or close to) and not have a significant amount of excess fat and sagging skin. If this is the case, surgery may be a better alternative.
Patients can expect a visible reduction in cellulite at the end of their treatment plan. The results that can be achieved depend on several factors, including lifestyle, skin tone and genetics. The longevity of the results will depend on the same factors. Leading a healthy lifestyle is important following your treatment plan.
Along with reducing the appearance of cellulite, this treatment is also designed to improve scarring, including stretch marks. Several treatments are required to see a visible difference. Patients should also be aware that stretch marks won’t disappear completely but there will be a noticeable reduction. This is particularly true if you combine treatments with good topical creams or ointments.
There is a wide range of cellulite treatment options available on the market today. Topical products and supplements can only do so much though. This energy-based treatment is different because it targets the underlying structures of the skin. As the energy penetrates these structures, it improves lymphatic drainage and helps release the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin. Topical creams and oils can only penetrate the top layer of the skin. So, while this will keep the skin moisturised and supple, it won’t have quite the same effect as energy-based treatment options.
