Spring is here, and that means that summer is just a few months away. If your cellulite has you dreading the warmer weather, now may be the time to finally address the issue with our BTL Cellutone® treatments.
Although fat plays a role in both cellulite and bulges on your body, the key difference is that cellulite also involves problems with the connective tissue of your skin. Therefore, cellulite has a distinct, “orange peel” appearance. Aging and other factors weaken the connective tissue, and this allows the fat to protrude through openings in the latticework of fibrous tissue.
Excess fat can be eliminated with surgery, as well as non-surgical body contouring treatments that destroy fat cells. Because cellulite also involves connective tissue, any treatment needs to target both the fat and connective tissues.
BTL Cellutone® is a non-invasive treatment for cellulite. One treatment takes very little time, and you may see up to 40% reduction in your cellulite. The secret behind these results is a mechanical vibration that stimulates blood flow and helps your body naturally eliminate the interstitial fluid in the treatment area. We typically recommend four to six treatments for full results, but this varies by patient.
Why stop at cellulite when you can also eliminate excess fat? Add CoolSculpting® and Cutera TrueSculpt® 3D to your BTL Cellutone® treatments for a comprehensive fat and cellulite reduction plan. These procedures will not lengthen your appointment significantly, and now downtime is needed.
Maintaining the results of your cellulite treatments and body contouring may require follow-up treatments. We also recommend that you follow a healthy, active lifestyle to prevent new fat from developing on your body.
