As women gain weight, the skin around the butt, thighs, and pelvis becomes uneven and dimpled. This condition is known as cellulite. When the number of fat cells in the body increase, they push against the skin. As a result, the long connective cords are pulled down. This causes dents or dimples in the skin. The skin may appear to be loose and lumpy. It is estimated that almost 90% of women have cellulite.
Even though cellulite is a common and harmless skin condition, women often get bothered by the appearance of their loose, lumpy thighs and butt. They find it embarrassing to wear short dresses and skirts because of their cellulite. However, many non-invasive treatments reduce cellulite and make the skin firm. Amongst them is the use of radiofrequency. In a scientific study, it was found that radiofrequency has a positive effect on the reduction of cellulite. The procedure was found to be safe and showed “improvements in cellulite.”
Radio Frequency for Cellulite Reduction
FDA approved devices that emit radiofrequency are becoming popular for treating cellulite. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses the thermal energy from pure radio frequency to contour the body and reduce cellulite on the bottom, thighs, and abdomen.
The device that is used to emit radiofrequency depends on the appearance of the cellulite. If the skin is too loose and lumpy, the treatment may be combined with infrared, suction, and tissue mobilization to effectively reduce cellulite and encourage collagen production.
What to expect during your session
Before starting the service, a certified body contour technician will assess to see if you are an ideal candidate. Generally, an ideal candidate is no more than 30lbs over their ideal body weight and is in overall good health. Since this is NOT a medical procedure, those with severe obesity or health conditions should seek alternative treatment options.
Once it is determined you will benefit from radiofrequency to reduce cellulite, you will undress down to a thong and lay on the table. A lubricant (gel, oil, or cream) is applied on the skin so that the device can be smoothly moved around on the affected area. The lubricant also ensures that the radiofrequency does not cause direct harm to the skin and tissues.
The session lasts 45 minutes. The handheld device that emits radiofrequency is moved around the affected areas. The device radiates heat, and because of this, the skin may appear a little red and sore. Once the treatment is complete, soothing cream is applied to the skin to reduce the redness. Most clients see immediate results after the first session! However, it takes around 6 to 8 treatment sessions in total to achieve the desired effect. But with each successive treatment, patients will notice a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and firmer skin around the buttocks and thighs.
As the thermal radiation emitted from the radiofrequency is applied on the skin, it penetrates deep into the skin and works at a cellular level. The fatty cells are destroyed and the excess fatty deposits in tissues and around the muscles are melted. The debris of this melted fat is naturally drained through the lymphatic system and excreted from the body.
As the fatty cells no longer exist, the skin becomes even. Moreover, the heat energy emitted from the radiofrequency stimulates the body’s natural healing process. To heal the damaged skin cells, the body produces more collagen and elastin. This makes the skin appear firmer and tighter around the buttocks and thighs.
Women who have received the treatment are satisfied with the results. They highly recommend using radiofrequency for cellulite reduction. It is a safe, fast, and non-invasive procedure for cellulite reduction. So, if you are bothered by your butt dimples, you may want to consider radiofrequency for cellulite reduction.
