Cellulite Reduction Q & A
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the dimpled or crepe-like skin dimpling that is caused by persistent subcutaneous fat. It's most commonly seen in women, especially in the thighs, buttocks, and hips. However, it can appear in men as well.
What is PelleFirm?
PelleFirm is a radiofrequency treatment system designed to smooth the skin, improve skin tone, and reduce the appearance of cellulite on the body. This non-invasive treatment can be used in all of the most common trouble spots, including the thighs, hips, buttocks, breasts, upper arms, and more.
How does PelleFirm work to remove cellulite?
PelleFirm sends a deep heat into the lower layers of the skin, which efficiently prompts improved blood circulation. Additionally, the PelleFirm applicator is specially designed to provide a brisk massage that stimulates extra fluids to be released. The extra fluid will naturally leave the body over the next few days and weeks. This combines to result in firmer and smoother skin with less dimples.
Who is a good candidate for PelleFirm?
Men and women who opt for PelleFirm are typically between 30 and 65. Anyone who’s unhappy with the dimpled or crepey look of their skin may benefit from this treatment. This type of treatment is an excellent option for people who want smoother skin and less cellulite without needing to undergo a major surgical procedure like liposuction.
How many treatments are needed?
Most people enjoy results after a single treatment, but for optimal results most people have a series of treatments. For most people, a total of around 6 treatments yields optimal cellulite reduction results. Follow up treatments can be done a couple of times per year to maintain the very best appearance.
How long does the treatment take?
The PelleFirm treatment usually takes from half an hour to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area and how many areas are being treated.
Is there any downtime needed after treatment?
No, PelleFirm treatment requires no downtime at all. In fact, the treatment is so fast and easy that some patients even opt to have it during their lunch break.
