Cellulite reduction treatments are noninvasive procedures that safely and effectively minimize the appearance of cellulite and improve the contours of the body in the treated areas. Cellulite reduction treatments use radiofrequency energy and gentle vacuum massage to induce apoptosis (the destruction of fat cells). The dead fat cells are naturally absorbed by the body and processed out with time. Patients will be able to leave after the procedure, but they should avoid strenuous activity for at least 1 – 2 weeks.
What to Expect
For the first day or two after the treatment, you may experience some mild bruising, swelling, and redness, but this should subside quickly to reveal results. Results usually last 6 – 12 months as the patient notices a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and skin dimpling, and an improvement in the elasticity and thickness of their skin. Individual results vary, but on average, patients lose about one inch off the circumference of the treated area.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the lumpy, dimpled flesh that usually appears on the thighs, hips, butt, and stomach. While cellulite is more common in women, it can also be found in men. The cause of cellulite is still unclear, but many doctors think it is fat swollen with toxins to create ripples on the surface of the skin, which may be caused by genetics, thin skin, and aging. Cellulite can be found on thin and overweight bodies, and while it is not considered a serious medical condition, it is considered undesirable and unattractive.
What is the length of a laser cellulite reduction treatment?
The length of the treatment will depend on how many areas are being treated and the size of each area, but most treatments take at least 1 – 2 hours. Patients should return to get cellulite reduction treatments once a week for 6 – 8 weeks, or as recommended.
What can I expect during recovery?
To help speed recovery and fat loss, patients may wear compression garments for 2 – 3 weeks after their treatment. It is also helpful to the recovery process if the patient avoids strenuous activity, including exercise for 1 – 2 weeks.
