You’ve spent years eating healthy, reasonably portioned foods. You’ve dedicated several hours a week to your strict workout routine. But you can’t budge that pesky, dimply fat that seems permanently attached to your thighs. Luckily, you don’t have to settle for living with your trouble spots. With body contouring at SkinMD Seattle in Seattle, WA, you can feel confident in everything you wear. Today, we reveal everything you need to know about Cellutone and how it can change your life for the better.
Cellutone is a revolutionary body contouring treatment that removes cellulite without the need for an invasive medical procedure. This incredibly advanced treatment eliminates cellulite by harnessing the power of acoustic wave therapy. The vibrational energy produced by the device gently massages your areas of concern in an oscillating manner. This reduces the appearance of textural irregularities, such as bumpy cellulite.
How It Works
This body contouring treatment works by improving lymphatic flow and circulation while mechanically treating both the skin and the underlying fat. Cellutone is used to improve the efficiency of lymphatic drainage, promote faster blood flow, alleviate tissue inflammation and heal abnormal fat and damaged connective tissue structure.
What It Treats
Cellutone is used to treat cellulite and other textural irregularities virtually anywhere. It is most often used to treat cellulite found on the buttocks or thighs. However, if you struggle with cellulite or stretch marks on your upper arms or stomach, a consultation with Dr. Balogun can help you determine if Cellutone will be able to address your unique concerns. We have also seen people come in to address cellulite around the bra line and flanks.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Cellutone treatment is not painful at all. In fact, there is no need for a topical anesthetic or oral medication to keep you comfortable during treatment. During the treatment, you will hear a slight “pattering” sound as the sound waves vibrate against your damaged cells. Moreover, treatment is extremely brief. It only takes around seven to 10 minutes depending on the size of the area you’re treating.
When Will I See My Desired Results?
Depending on how extensive your cellulite is, you may need more than one treatment session to achieve your ideal aesthetic. We typically try to schedule four to six appointments a week apart to give your skin texture time to improve after your treatments. This gives us a pretty good idea of how many more treatment sessions you will probably need. However, it can take up to three weeks before you see the final results of your Cellutone treatment.
How Long Do the Results Last?
If your cellulite is caused by poor circulation and lymphatic flow, you will probably need a maintenance treatment every four months. However, if your cellulite is caused by damaged tissue, you may find that your results last a lifetime. Regardless of the cause of your cellulite, you will enjoy the best results if you stay within 10 pounds of your current body weight.
What Aftercare Steps Are Necessary?
One of the best things about Cellutone is there are no strict precautionary measures you need to take after treatment. However, we advise avoiding any medications or supplements which can thin your blood to eliminate the risk of bleeding. Such medications and supplements include vitamin E, NSAIDs, anticoagulants, anti-platelet medications and St. John’s Wort.
How Much Downtime Is Required?
There is absolutely no downtime or requisite recovery period associated with Cellutone. You do not have to change your daily routine. You do not need time off of work. Moreover, if you’re only treating a few areas, you can come in during your lunch hour and not miss any work at all.
Will Treatment Make My Skin Sag?
Body contouring with Cellutone does not result in sagging skin. Sagging skin occurs when you lose so much weight so rapidly that your skin doesn’t have time to settle back into its appropriate position. Cellutone doesn’t cause fat loss. It simply promotes improved blood flow and lymphatic function to smooth your skin out and reduce the appearance of irregularities in texture.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cellutone?
You are probably a good candidate for Cellutone if you are self-conscious about your cellulite or stretch marks. Clients of any skin tone and mild abdominal bloating can benefit from this treatment. However, it won’t be until your initial consultation where we will review your current aesthetic and aesthetic goals that you can determine for sure if you’re a good candidate for this treatment.
What Makes a Poor Candidate?
As with most cosmetic treatments, there are contraindications to cellulite treatment with Cellutone. Treatment may not be right for you at this time if any of the following apply to you:
- Excessive obesity
- Surgery within six weeks of appointment
- Bleeding disorders
- Vascular fragility
- Open skin lesions
- Active skin infections
- Use of anti-platelet or anticoagulant medications
