Cellulite Reduction – Finally, Safe, Effective, Non-invasive Treatment is Available
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. While it does not represent a health threat, cellulite is aesthetically unappealing, and a source of embarrassment to many women. Just like wrinkle reduction services, cellulite reduction will improve self-confidence.
Accent radio frequency therapy is able to change the shape of fat cells and shrink and remodel the connective tissue that forms this unsightly condition.
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?
It is not hard to lose cellulite with our treatments. 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.
What will I expect during my cellulite reduction treatment?
During Accent RF treatment, your nurse will apply the treatment tip to your skin, precisely heating the skin’s inner layer (dermis), while its outer layer (epidermis) is continually cooled. Depending on the size of the treated area, cellulite reduction treatment may take from about 20-50 minutes. You should see a gradual improvement.
Following treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. You may notice slight temporary redness, which should disappear in less than 24 hours. While Accent RF has shown to be safe, effective and long-lasting, maintenance treatment may extend and improve upon results.
Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is individual, most people tolerate Accent RF cellulite reduction treatment well, and have little or no discomfort. Patients often describe the sensation as a warm massage.
