Non-surgical cellulite reduction procedures offer a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of cellulite without surgery. Cellulite is a common condition that causes dimpling of the skin on the hips, buttocks, thighs, and sometimes other areas of the body.
Non-surgical cellulite treatments use energy-based technologies to target and destroy fat cells in the affected area while stimulating collagen production leading to smoother, firmer skin. Many non-surgical treatments can be used for cellulite reduction including radiofrequency (RF), ultrasound, laser therapy and Microneedling.
Radiofrequency systems like Vellashape use heat generated by radio waves to target fat cells and make them more permeable so they can be naturally broken down and eliminated from the body.
Ultrasound technologies like Ultherapy stimulate collagen production below the skin which helps reduce wrinkles and tighten sagging skin.
Laser therapies like Fotona laser utilize a laser device to cut through bands of fibrous tissue just below the skin that trap fat between muscles.
Non-surgical cellulite reduction treatment typically requires multiple sessions spaced out over a period of some weeks or months depending on your individual case. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during treatments but swelling may occur afterwards which usually resolves in 1–2 days. Results appear gradually after each session with most patients seeing desired results within 3–5 months depending on their age, lifestyle habits, genetics and existing health conditions.
Maintaining healthy lifestyle habits such as good dieting, regular exercise, drinking plenty of water and reducing stress levels help ensure long-lasting results from non-surgical cellulite treatments. Avoiding sun exposure also helps protect your skin from further damage while ensuring you look great even years after your treatment has been completed!
