85% of women are affected by bumpy, dimpled, unappealing cellulite. As cellulite is caused by fibrous bands underneath the skin that compress fat, diet and exercise do little to help the appearance of this condition. Clinical treatments offer the most effective and longest lasting results. My office recommends three different procedures: ThermiSmooth, VelaShape 3, and Cellfina.
ThermiSmooth— A non-invasive treatment that uses very controlled radio frequencies that deep heat target tissues and stimulate collagen growth, improving the appearance of cellulite. A series of three to six treatments are needed for the best results. Thermismooth may also be used to treat fine lines or wrinkles.
VelaShape 3— A non-invasive treatment that combines massage rollers, a vacuum to elevate the target tissue, infrared lights to heat the target tissue, and bi-polar radio frequencies that guide the heat, all helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite over six sessions, one week apart. The combination of these technologies causes the connective tissue under the skin to heat up, stimulating collagen growth, improving cellulite and skin elasticity. VelaShape 3 may also be used for eliminating fat cells around the stomach and thighs.
Cellfina— Cellfina is the newest FDA approved treatment for cellulite. Unlike the others, it is a one-time, minimally invasive procedure during which a safe, small needle-like tool is inserted to the target tissue to break apart the excessive fibrous connective tissue that causes cellulite. There is minimum downtime and the amazing results from one treatment last at least two years, longer than any other cellulite treatment.
