HOW THERMAGE® CELLULITE TREATMENT WORKS
Almost every woman has it and every woman hates it—cellulite. About 90% of women over the age of 30 have cellulite, and it is also common among men. Skin that was once smooth becomes dimpled, textured and unattractive. Often we notice it on our butts, thighs, stomachs and hips, but it can appear on almost any part of the body.
Cellulite is common because it is related to the nature of subcutaneous fat. In people, this fat is chambered by connective tissue. This tissue creates a quilt-like effect, where the fat chambers are depressed at the edges and pillowed in the middle.
However, Thermage Cellulite Treatment is a non-invasive procedure that improves the appearance of cellulite without any downtime because it loosens the fibrous connections, allowing the skin to even out. In addition, it stimulates the production of collagen cells in the skin of the treated area, giving you firmer, thicker skin that can resist cellulite. You only need one treatment, which doesn’t involve surgery or injections. Results can be immediate, but also gradually improve over a six month period. To get the best results, we recommend combining Thermage with another cellulite treatment.
A special collagen-contracting heat is used to deeply heat the problem area, rebuilding collagen connective tissues, tightening and firming the skin and improving blood flow to the tissues, helping to smooth the surface of the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
