What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most noticeable on the buttocks and thighs, and usually occurs after puberty. Although cellulite can affect both sexes, it is much more common in females, mainly because they are more likely to have particular types of fat and connective tissue.
How does it work?
RF Heat generates a focused wound healing response that realigns and regenerates collagen in your skin to replace aging, sagging skin with fresher, younger skin (a form of Collagen induction therapy).
The Thermi-250 handpiece allows deep controlled penetration of RF energy and treats cellulite symptoms by three main mechanisms:
- Tightening of the underlying tissues, which in turn causes a production of new collagen and collagen remodeling.
- Increased blood circulation to the area being treated and drainage of the fatty deposits to the lymphatic system.
- Fatty acid decomposition or breakdown and heat-induced fat cell death.
Will you lose weight with Thermi-250 Body Thermi250?
It is important to note that although Thermi-250® 250 can lead to superficial and volumetric changes in your tissues and therefore a reduction of size in a given area, Thermi-250® 250 is not a weight-loss program and it will not significantly alter your weight.
How many treatments will you need?
The number of collagen stimulating treatments can vary depending on the severity of the condition being treated. You may begin to see slights improvements after a couple of treatments, but at least 6-8 treatments are recommended, spaced 1 to 3 weeks apart, to achieve optimum results. Full benefits will likely not be accomplished if a full series of treatments are not performed.
Who is a good candidate?
As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why patients should not undergo this treatment.
Also, it is advisable not to have treatment in an area recently treated with dermal filler products, such as hyaluronic acid for at least after a month.
Although there is no proof that this treatment could harm pregnant women, we suggest you come in after the pregnancy. Anyone with electrical devices in their body, such as pacemakers, should also not be treated. People with metal implants or metal joint replacements should not have treatments over these areas.
How long is the treatment?
Generally, treatments take about 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
How to prepare for the procedure?
Your skin should be clean and dry, free of make-up, creams, oils, or other skin products. The treatment is should not be exposed to sunlight, tanning booths or self-tanning products for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
Is there any downtime or side effects?
Generally speaking, there is no downtime with this treatment, and you could return to your normal activities the same day. You may however find the skin appears pink or red that should subside within 2-4 hours; however, this is generally quite mild.
Depending on the area treated you may experience some mild “achiness”, similar to a muscle ache after a workout. This should resolve in 2-3 days. If it does not, please contact our office.
What Is the Post-treatment Routine?
In general, we recommend that you drink at least 8-10 glasses of water for the first three days following the treatment.
In order to avoid overheating the treated skin tissue at depth, you should not wash the treated area with hot water for 24 hours and avoid hot baths or saunas for three days after the treatment.
For the same reason, it is also recommended to avoid excessive exercise for a couple of days after the treatment as this can increase your skin temperature.
How long does it last?
Due to the ageing process as well as various other factors such as genetics, diet, smoking, sun exposure, alcohol consumption, etc. ongoing maintenance will be required more frequently for older people and for those with poor skin quality to begin-with. Use of sun protection and other proper skin treatments will also help maintain skin tautness.
For body contouring applications, the improvement in the skin quality is said to be long lasting, similar to the facial tightening results; however, keeping the body contours in check is also subject to a person’s diet, calorie intake, exercise and lifestyle. Furthermore, as we continue to age and loose elasticity in our skin, diet and exercise certainly have a huge impact on our body. Regular exercise and a balanced diet are crucial and imperative to maintain improvements in cellulite and fat reduction and to keep our body contours in good shape.
