Cellulite reduction Q & A
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a skin condition characterized by a lumpy, bumpy, appearance often compared to cottage cheese. It’s common in the thigh and buttocks area, but it also forms in the upper arms, calves, and stomach. If you have cellulite, many factors can affect the extent to which it appears on your skin, such as:
- Body fat percentage
- Skin type and thickness
Cellulite is found in every race in every nation and affects women more frequently than men.
What causes cellulite?
You get cellulite when fibrous connective tissues and cords pull underneath your skin and create a rippled appearance. Cellulite isn’t just a result of fat, but how your fat is structured and spreads throughout your body
How is cellulite treated?
At Refresh Rx Hawaii, your team of highly trained aestheticians uses TempSure Envi radiofrequency treatments to minimize the appearance of your cellulite. Your specialist guides the TempSure Envi device over your troubled areas. Beneath the surface, your skin heats up and activates collagen and elastin production, two proteins that smooth your skin. The high-tech TempSure Envi system allows your skin to heat to high temperatures with no pain or discomfort.
As new collagen and elastin continue to regenerate over time, your skin tightens and the lumpy cottage cheese appearance caused by cellulite slowly fades.
How long does it take to see results after TempSure Envi treatment?
Unfortunately, cellulite is stubborn and satisfactory results take a couple months or more. Thankfully, you’ll notice firmer, tighter skin after your first treatment, but it may take upwards of six to eight weeks for your body to process your fat cells and flush them out through your lymphatic system.
During that time, you’ll return to Refresh Rx Hawaii for up to six sessions to optimize your results. The aesthetic team meets with you to develop a custom plan that addresses the severity of your cellulite and your specific goals. They’ll also make lifestyle recommendations about your diet and physical activity to support your cellulite removal treatment.
TempSure Envi cellulite removal is safe, painless, and requires no downtime. Call Refresh Rx Hawaii, to reserve a session or book an appointment online today.
