Are you on a strict diet and exercising excessively yet still have cellulite? We can help you. Indeed, cellulite is fat, but the skin often causes the rippled appearance, not the fat itself. To smooth away those bumps, you need to reduce the fat and strengthen and tighten the skin.
Profound® treatment is a non-surgical alternative for eliminating ugly cellulite. It combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedles to target areas with cellulite and stimulates a tightening and smoothing of the fat and skin. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, we offer this treatment for patients who want to reduce cellulite and boost their self-confidence.
How Does Cellulite Form?
Regardless of how toned or athletic you may be, cellulite can occur in various body areas, including the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. It is also particularly common for skin to develop cellulite as it loses elasticity due to age. While some may consider it a nuisance, it poses no medical harm to those who experience it.
Cellulite occurs when fat cells collect in the tissues that connect your skin to the underlying muscle. This tissue pushes up against your skin, and the connective tissues push down, forming a dimpling effect. This doesn’t change much with diet or exercise, but a Profound cellulite treatment can reduce cellulite by targeting the fatty tissue that accumulates between your skin and muscle.
How Does Profound Work?
The Profound cellulite treatment involves melting the superficial layer of fat with warm radiofrequency energy and improving skin quality. The treatment uses the Profound device, which consists of very fine microneedles that deliver RF energy directly to the areas with cellulite. This energy disrupts cellulite and kickstarts your body’s natural production of skin-tightening elements. As a bonus, the treatment is only needed one time to get results!
At the beginning of your appointment, our team applies numbing agents to the skin before the procedure to minimize any discomfort, although patients don’t typically experience any pain during the Profound treatment. The treatment can take anywhere between one to two hours, depending on the severity and size of the area treated. Recovery can take a few days, and results will begin to show in about two weeks, with maximum results seen by nine months.
After the treatment, the enhanced collagen and elastin make the skin smoother with more volume, improving the appearance and diminishing lumps of cellulite. Profound treatments result in more youthful, firmer skin and reduced cellulite in the treated areas, giving patients the self-confidence to wear a bikini again.
