Cellulite is one of the most widespread nuisances among men and women alike. Each year, money and time are spent by men and women alike in an often unsuccessful attempt to be rid of their cellulite. At SkinMD Seattle in Seattle, WA, we offer an effective, in-office cellulite reduction treatment that will help smooth your skin, remove cellulite and other textural abnormalities, and in turn, help you feel more confident in your appearance.
What Is the Best Method of Cellulite Reduction?
There are many natural ways that you can attempt to get rid of cellulite at home, but they are often unsuccessful because they are either not effective, or they are time-consuming and require a daily time-commitment to make a noticeable difference. From foam rolling to coffee scrubs to high impact exercises, to next to nothing diets, nothing is quite as effective, simple, and painless as an in-office, non-invasive cellulite treatment.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite appears right below the surface of the skin and causes the area affected to look dimpled, bumpy, and unattractive. It forms due to fat deposits in certain areas of the body, most often in the thighs, hips, and buttocks, that push on connective tissues beneath the skin. It can also appear on the abdomen and upper arms.
What Causes It?
Since cellulite isn’t limited to those who are overweight, there isn’t one specific reason for why it develops. However, several factors come into play that determine some possible reasons for its appearance on men and women alike:
- Hormonal changes
- Genetic factors
- Slow metabolic functioning
- Poor diet
- Lack of exercise
Getting Rid of Cellulite With an In-Office Treatment
Cellulite doesn’t have a type. It doesn’t pick and choose its victims, but instead, it affects almost everyone and every body type. Even the fittest people can struggle with cellulite. If you don’t want to spend time and money trying to get rid of cellulite at home, we have a solution. At SkinMD Seattle in Seattle, WA, we are proud to offer Cellutone, a cutting edge treatment that helps eliminate cellulite without the need for invasive measures or surgical procedures.
What Is Cellutone?
Cellutone is a body contouring treatment that uses sound waves to target and reduces cellulite and other textural abnormalities. It utilizes a device to help to get rid of cellulite without having to undergo invasive measures or surgical procedures.
How Does It Work?
Cellutone utilizes acoustic wave therapy to create vibrational energy. When this energy is transferred to the skin, it uses oscillating movements to massage the areas containing cellulite. As a result, the areas of treatment begin to show an improved appearance and an overall reduction of bumpy cellulite. The purpose of this cellulite reduction treatment is to:
- Improve and increase blood flow to the area holding cellulite
- Improving lymphatic flow
- Mechanically treat the skin and fat
- Alleviate tissue inflammation
- Heal abnormal fat
- Repair damaged connective tissue structure
What Happens During a Treatment?
Cellutone treatments are quick and only take seven to ten minutes to complete, depending on how many areas you are treating. During your session, a device will be placed against your cellulite. You will hear the device make sound, but you will not feel anything.
Does It Hurt?
This treatment is completely painless. It does not require the use of numbing creams or topical anesthetics to help you get through the treatment. You will hear the treatment while the device is in effect, but you won’t feel any pain.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Those who undergo this treatment typically notice results within three weeks of treatment. Optimal results come from multiple sessions, typically four to six sessions spaced one week apart. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your concerns and help develop a treatment plan that best meets your goals and gives you the best looking results.
How Long Will My Results Last?
How long your results last depends on the type of cellulite you are having treated. If your cellulite has formed as a result of damaged tissue, your results may be permanent. If your cellulite is caused by improper lymphatic flow and poor circulation, you may require regular treatments four times per year to maintain results. Most patients experience the longest-lasting results when they maintain a healthy body weight.
Am I a Candidate for Cellutone?
Are you self-conscious about wearing swimsuits because of your cellulite? If you have been trying to find a way to get rid of your cellulite but have been unsuccessful, then you are most likely a candidate for Cellutone. During your initial consultation, we will examine your problem areas and help determine if this treatment will help give you the results you’re looking for. You may not be a candidate if you:
- Are currently pregnant
- Are severely overweight
