WHAT IS CELLULITE?
Cellulite is a harmless, common, skin condition that makes skin on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen appear lumpy or dimpled. It is caused by the connective tissue in the skin just below the surface layer and the layer of fat just below it. When the fat cells protrude into the layer of skin it gives the appearance of cellulite. The fat cells and connective tissues are arranged vertically in women and crisscrossed in men, as a result, women are more likely to develop cellulite than men.
Ninety percent of women develop some sort of cellulite in their life. Cellulite is caused by the weakening of those skin fibers,
called collagen, whose job it is to tighten the skin. This causes the fat just below the skin to rise in certain spots.
This is what makes the undulation on the skin that many people liken to cottage cheese.
CELLULITE REDUCTION TREATMENT
The treatment method for cellulite reduction is rather simple. Since loose skin is part of the cause of cellulite, we simply tighten the skin.
The simple method is to heat up the skin which encourages new collagen to grow. We heat up the skin using versatile technology.
The versatility and simplicity of the treatment allows flexibility in terms of application. This means that we are able to use this treatment method anywhere on the body and reduce cellulite wherever you may be affected by it. If you have it on your stomach, love handles, buttocks, thighs, or wherever we can reduce it.
The technology we use in cellulite reduction is called The Venus Legacy™. The Venus Legacy is designed to provide a comfortable experience without sacrificing results. Venus Legacy™ features four applicators: OctiPolar™ and 4D Body for larger areas,
and DiamondPolar™ and 4D Face for smaller areas. All four applicators are powered by proprietary (MP)2 technology, only offered
by Venus Concept’s cellulite removal devices.
The 4D Body applicator is equipped with novel VariPulse™ technology, which makes it highly effective for cellulite reduction. The radio frequencies and magnetic pulses work together to heat up the skin to a temperature that engages the body’s natural healing process without damaging the skin. This natural healing process creates new collagen. The new collagen then begins to contract and tighten the skin, which reduces the appearance of cellulite. The new tightened skin does not allow the fat beneath the skin to cause the undulation.
Unlike some at-home cellulite remedies, the treatment method is entirely safe and proven to be effective. Multi-Polar RF uses a complex algorithm to deliver homogeneous energy and volumetric heating to multiple tissue depths, allowing for quick and safe buildup of heat, and easy maintenance of therapeutic temperature throughout the treatment. All four Venus Legacy™ applicators are equipped with integrated sensors that provide real-time thermal feedback to allow for easy, immediate, and continuous detection of skin temperature profile.
All of this allows for the technician to apply the treatment safely and effectively. The best part about the treatment is that it is completely noninvasive. Whereas some treatments for cellulite involve surgery, Resilient One Med spa’s treatment is entirely surgery free. This means that we avoid any of the typical dangers that are associated with surgery such as infections or scarring caused by incisions. Moreover, there is no downtime following treatment like there is with surgery. The noninvasive nature of the treatment means that you can leave our clinic and return to your normal daily activities whether that is work or play.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?The number of sessions you need will depend on your treatment plan. It can range anywhere from three to eight sessions typically and you may need more. The more serious your skin afflictions the more sessions you will need to correct them. The different treatment methods also factor into the number of sessions needed.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?Treatment time varies depending on the treatments being administered and will vary from patient to patient. Typically, treatments can take anywhere between thirty to ninety minutes, but a more exact number will be given to you at consultation.
ARE SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS PAINFUL?The treatments are designed to be as comfortable as possible, and the applicators have built in features to counteract any pain brought on by the process. However, because the skin is being constantly stimulated throughout the treatment you may still feel some discomfort. Your technician will be right here to adjust settings and make sure you as comfortable as possible.
WHAT IS THE TYPICAL DOWNTIME?There is no downtime with our skin rejuvenation methods because they are all noninvasive treatments. You may have to avoid wearing makeup for a few days, and need to avoid sun exposure, but you should be able to immediately return to your normal activities.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?The results and their staying power will vary from person to person as different skin reacts differently to the treatment. What you can control is how you care for your skin following treatment. With good skin care, such as avoiding direct sun exposure, results last longer. We also recommend a touch up session every six months following treatment for best results.
