Cellulite Treatment

Does this sound familiar? You're standing in line at the supermarket and your eyes fall on the latest celebrity gossip magazine – and the feature is "celebrities with cellulite." If you're like many women, this might be comforting, to realize that even slim and attractive starlets have a little "cottage cheese." Celebrity or not, you deserve to feel great in your bathing suit, free from the embarrassment of cellulite. We can help – with cellulite treatments in Orange County, California.

Cellulite Treatments

We have 2 fantastic options for the treatment of cellulite: TriActive™ and Thermage®.

TriActive

TriActive combines mechanical massage (to improve circulation), localized cooling (to reduce inflammation), and low-energy laser (to promote lymphatic drainage) to reduce cellulite. The procedure is not painful and does not require anesthesia. It can be used to treat many body areas, including the buttocks and thighs.

Treatments typically last about 20 minutes. First a series of biweekly treatments are recommended, and once your desired results have been achieved, a monthly treatment will maintain your cellulite reduction. After the procedure, patients can resume their usual activities immediately.

Thermage

Thermage uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to tighten skin. Although it is often used to smooth wrinkles, Thermage can also be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite. During the procedure, deep layers of skin are heated while the outer layer of skin is cooled. This causes deep structures in the skin to immediately tighten and, over time, encourages collagen production.

Treatment can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. This cellulite treatment isn't painful; most Irvine, CA and other Orange County patients feel only a deep heating sensation. Results appear gradually over 2 to 6 months. Unlike many laser procedures requiring multiple sessions, a single Thermage treatment may be able to achieve the desired improvement.
