Even with diet and exercise, cellulite can still be a problem for some people. While cellulite is fat, it is often the skin that is causing the rippled appearance, not the fat itself. To smooth away the bumps, you need to reduce the fat and strengthen and tighten the skin. Profound treatment is a revolutionary option that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to target areas with cellulite and stimulates a tightening and smoothing of the fat and skin. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we are excited to offer this treatment for our patients that want to improve the look of cellulite for increased self-confidence.
Cellulite is commonly found on the thighs and buttocks, but can also appear on the abdomen and other areas. Genetics can play a role in whether you have cellulite appear, as can weight gain and skin health. The “cottage cheese” appearance of cellulite is due to fatty tissue protruding through the connective tissues under the skin. This does not change much with diet or exercise, but treating the skin with a Profound cellulite treatment can help hide the bumps and lumps, creating smoother thighs, buttocks or other areas.
Our team at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, are experts in improving the health and beauty of the skin. Our founder and lead physician, Dr. Benjamin Stong, is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon who has many years of experience in the cosmetic medical field. When it comes to choosing the best treatments for achieving results, Dr. Stong does the needed research to ensure our patients have access to the most advanced options available. Profound cellulite treatments are one of most effective options to improve the cellulite and skin structure to minimize cellulite appearance, which is why we have it available at our clinic.
Why Choose Profound for Cellulite Treatment?
There are many creams and other cosmetic treatments that claim to help reduce cellulite. Although they may claim to have a benefit, they do not address the key elements to improving the structure of the skin and fat. With Profound cellulite treatments, the skin is smoothed by melting the superficial layer of fat with the radiofrequency energy and improving skin quality. After the treatment, the skin will appear smoother because of the cellulite reduction.
The treatment uses the Profound hand-held device to deliver RF energy to the areas with cellulite. The device has microneedles that ensure the energy and heat are delivered to the right depth below the skin to reduce cellulite. The treatment is only needed one time to get results. Our team applies numbing agents to the skin before the procedure to reduce any discomfort. The treatment can take one to two hours, depending on the size of the area treated. After the procedure, the fat melts which smooths the skin. Recovery can take a few days. Results can begin to be noticed in about two weeks, with maximum results seen by nine months.
The enhanced collagen and elastin after the Profound cellulite treatment makes the skin smoother with more volume. This helps improve the look and diminishes bumpy patches of cellulite, especially in those that have had cellulite appear as they have gotten older. Profound offers the benefits of creating more youthful, firmer skin while minimizing cellulite in the treated areas, giving patients the self-confidence to bare their thighs or other areas again.
