Although a common and harmless skin condition, the appearance of cellulite can cause insecurities and stress for some people. At Skin Technique, we have a specific treatment to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a type of fat that forms deposits beneath the skin, resulting in a dimpled or “orange-peel” appearance. Although it is most commonly found on the thighs and buttocks, cellulite can also affect other areas of the body, such as the stomach, arms, and chest. Despite its name, cellulite is not a type of fat. Instead, it is caused by how fat cells are distributed beneath the skin. In people with cellulite, these fat cells are arranged in a way that makes them more likely to bulge out between the collagen fibres that provide support and structure to the skin.
What Causes Cellulite?
Though it is most commonly seen in women, men can also suffer from cellulite. Many factors can contribute to cellulite formation, including genetics, diet, and lifestyle choices. For example, people who are overweight or have a sedentary lifestyle are more likely to develop cellulite.
Additionally, hormones play a role in the development of cellulite. Women are more prone to cellulite due to hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. Cellulite can be difficult to get rid of once it forms, but there are treatments available that can improve the appearance of dimpled skin.
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
Our RF Skin Tightening treatment takes skin tightening to a whole new level. Radiofrequency is safely delivered through microneedle technology deep into the skin with no bleeding or bruising and minimal downtime.
How many sessions does it take for cellulite treatment?
The tightening of the skin can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Most people see significant results after just a few sessions, although some may need up to 8 sessions for best results. Radiofrequency skin tightening is safe for most people and has very few side effects. The most common side effect is mild redness or swelling, which usually fades within two days. If you consider this treatment for your cellulite, consult with a qualified practitioner, such as those at Skin Technique, to find out how many sessions you will need.
How long does cellulite treatment last?
Most patients report a significant reduction in cellulite after just a few treatments, and the effects can last for months or even years. However, it is important to note that the results will vary from person to person, and some patients may need to undergo periodic touch-ups to maintain their results. Overall, radiofrequency skin tightening cellulite treatment is an excellent option for those looking for a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Does cellulite come back after treatment?
While radiofrequency skin tightening is often effective at reducing the appearance of cellulite, it is important to note that the results are not permanent. For best results, patients should plan on receiving regular treatments. Additionally, patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and exercise routine, as this will help prolong the treatment results.
Can you remove cellulite with surgery?
For many, cellulite is often challenging to get rid of through diet and exercise alone. While there are a variety of treatments available to reduce the appearance of cellulite, surgery is not typically considered an option. While invasive procedures can effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite, they are also associated with a risk of complications, such as infection and bruising. As a result, surgery should only be considered as a last resort for treating cellulite.
