Most women have patches of cellulite in one or more places on their bodies, which can cause shame or embarrassment when wearing shorts, sleeveless shirts, or swimsuits. While a healthy diet and exercise can help reduce cellulite to a certain extent, many women are genetically exposed to cellulite formation and it can be difficult to get rid of cellulite on thighs or other locations. Fortunately, with modern advances in technology, a new treatment called Cellutone is available to help stop the processes that lead to cellulite formation. Dr. Christine Lee at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek, CA can consult with you to determine whether Cellutone is the right cellulite reduction treatment for you.
What is Cellutone?
Cellutone reduces unwanted cellulite by harnessing the power of vibrations that are specifically targeted at the treatment area. The energy from the Cellutone device breaks apart the tissues that cause cellulite and improves blood flow, stimulates your lymphatic system, and boosts metabolism. The end result is a reduction in unwanted cellulite without pain or surgery, as well as skin that is less lumpy and appears firmer and smoother.
Common areas that people use Cellutone to treat include:
- Upper arms
What to expect during Cellutone treatment
After an initial consultation to ensure Cellutone is a good option for you, the actual procedure will be quick and easy. It only takes about 7-10 minutes per area treated and does not cause any pain. Most patients feel a vibration from the Cellutone device but it is not uncomfortable. After your treatment is over, you will have zero downtime and can return to your daily activities.
You will likely need more than one treatment for optimal results. Treatments are typically scheduled about one week apart, but if you are combining Cellutone with another treatment, this interval may be longer. You should have noticeably smoother skin after the first few treatments, and maintenance treatments are recommended every four months to maintain optimal results.
