Cellulite Slimming and Skin Tightening
Cellulite affects nearly all adult women of all races. Characterized by a dimpled “cottage cheese” look, cellulite appears most commonly in the thighs and buttocks. A radiofrequency therapy is able to change the shape of fat cells and shrink and remodel the connective tissue that forms this unsightly condition. This technology presents a non-invasive, effective and long-lasting way to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
- Skin irregularities
- Visible dimpling (orange peel look)
- Reduction or complete elimination of cellulite
- Loss of inches
- Firming and tightening of skin
What is cellulite?
The body’s muscles are wrapped in a padding of fatty connective tissue. The fatty cells of the padding, bathed in a liquid medium, are held in place by a network of fibers, nourished and cleansed by body fluids. When this process is slowed down, the tissue is flooded with waste materials that thicken into a gelatin-like substance, forming pockets which migrate closer to the skin’s surface. The visible result: a puckered “orange peel” effect on the skin’s surface.
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is far more common among women than men, which indicates that hormonal differences play a major role in its formation. While cellulite tends to appear in parts of the body where excess fat is deposited, it is widespread among both thin and overweight women.

Treatment – what to expect?
During Radiofrequency treatment, your laser technician will apply the treatment tip to your skin, precisely heating the skin’s inner layer (dermis), while its out layer (epidermis) is continually cooled. Depending on the size of the treated area, treatment may take from about 30-75 minutes. You should see a gradual improvement.
Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is individual, most people tolerate RadioFrequency treatment well, and have little or no discomfort. Patients often describe the sensation as a warm massage.
How does this work?
The RadioFrequency employs three mechanisms to improve cellulite symptoms. It applies deep dermal heating to the fat bundles to bring about new collagen formation and skin remodeling. Stimulating enhanced blood circulation, the procedure also helps drain trapped fatty deposits and toxins. Finally, its thermal activity services to shrink fat cells.
When should I see results?
RadioFrequency thermotherapy causes the deep structures of your skin to tighten right away; results are immediately visible. With time, new collagen develops, further tightening your skin and yielding even more beautiful, natural looking and firmer skin while just one or two treatments can produce good results, your laser technician may recommend follow-up procedures to best maintain and improve your body’s youthful appearance.
