About Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite reduction refers to the various techniques and treatments aimed at reducing the appearance of cellulite, which is the dimpled, lumpy texture of the skin commonly found on the thighs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen. These treatments target the underlying fat deposits and improve the overall appearance of the affected areas.

Commonly asked questions about Cellulite Reduction

1. What is cellulite reduction?

Cellulite reduction treatment is a specialized approach to reduce the lumpy texture of skin caused by cellulite. Through non-surgical techniques, underlying fat is targeted while improving skin texture. These methods stimulate collagen, break down fat cells, and tighten the skin, resulting in smoother skin and reduced cellulite.

2. What causes cellulite?

The interaction of factors like genetics, hormonal changes, a sedentary lifestyle, poor diet, and aging mainly causes cellulite. It occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, creating a dimpled appearance.

3. Am I a good candidate for cellulite reduction?

An ideal candidate for cellulite reduction treatment is someone with mild to moderate cellulite who aims to minimize cellulite on the body and enhance skin appearance. Additionally, the ideal candidate should:

  • Be in good health.
  • Not pregnant.
  • Not taking blood thinners.
  • Not diabetic.
  • Do not have an infection at the treatment site.
  • Have realistic expectations for their results.

4. What are the different types of treatment for cellulite?

There are several treatments available for cellulite reduction, including:

Profound Cellulite Reduction: Profound uses RF energy to treat the root causes of cellulite. By delivering this energy to the deep skin layer, it dissolves fat and revitalizes connective tissue. This production of essential substances like elastin and collagen leads to smoother, tighter skin and reduced cellulite appearance.

VelaShape III: The Velashape™ is the first and only FDA-cleared non-invasive medical solution for body reshaping and cellulite reduction. VelaShape III combines Radiofrequency, Infrared Light, Vacuum, and Massage to break down fat, boost metabolism, and improve lymphatic drainage. This leads to gradual skin smoothing and a noticeable reduction in cellulite.

5. What areas can cellulite reduction be used?

The most common areas for successful cellulite reduction treatment include:

  • Abdomen
  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Legs
  • Hips
  • Buttocks

6. How is a cellulite reduction performed?

Profound Cellulite Reduction

The full procedure takes between 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. Before starting, a gentle numbing cream is applied to maximize your comfort throughout the session. The Profound system handpiece will be placed on the treatment area and will then deliver pulses of energy to the targeted areas.

VelaShape III

Throughout the session, the device’s handpiece is positioned over the desired spot. Individuals will experience a mild suction sensation due to the vacuum massage. The underlying fat regions warm up due to the RF and IR energies, giving a warm feeling to the patient that is bearable. The body’s heat is continuously checked to guarantee the procedure remains safe and pleasant. The duration of the session varies based on the number of spots addressed and their dimensions.

7. What is recovery like after cellulite reduction?

Recovery varies depending on the specific treatment. Many cellulite reduction treatments are non-invasive and require little to no downtime. Patients can typically resume their regular activities immediately after the procedure. Some treatments might cause mild redness or swelling, usually subsiding within a few days.

8. How long do results last?

The longevity of cellulite reduction treatments can vary widely based on the chosen treatment, individual factors, and lifestyle. Maintenance sessions may be required to prolong the results. The frequency of follow-up treatments depends on the client; however, one every two to three months is average to retain the cosmetic improvement.

9. What are the risks of cellulite reduction?

While non-invasive cellulite reduction is considered a safe procedure, there are potential risks, including:

  • Temporary redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Mild discomfort

10. How much does cellulite reduction cost in Canada?

The cost of cellulite reduction varies based on factors such as the treatment type, the number of sessions required, geographic location, and additional factors. In Canada, the cost of cellulite reduction treatments can range from approximately $2,000 to $3,000 per session.
