CelluTite™ uses gentle radiofrequency electrical energy to reduce cellulite nodules and improve the appearance of uneven skin. CelluTite™ emits RF (radiofrequency) energy and the applicator measures skin temperature at all times, cutting off the RF energy when the end points are met.
Cellulite reductions of 30-70% can be achieved in a single CelluTite™ treatment, with results that last several years.
THE CELLUTITE™ PROCEDURE
How is the treatment performed?
The CelluTite™ applicator is used to first coagulate and flatten the nodules. The RF energy from the tip melts the fat under the nodule, reducing and eliminating the nodule. CelluTite™ is a single treatment with a three-step procedure performed in approximately one hour. The cellulite to be treated has local anesthesia injected into it, rendering the CelluTite™ treatment painless.
Candidates for CelluTite™ are patients that have the realistic expectation of a 20 to 50% reduction in the appearance of cellulite. There are few contraindictions to CelluTite™ treatments, however those that are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or with infected lesions are recommended to abstain.
Type of Anesthesia
Local anesthetic is usually applied for those undergoing CelluTite™ treatments, with very minimal to no pain during the procedure.
The CelluTite™ procedure involves virtually no pain, as your physician will administer local anesthetic to avoid any pain or discomfort.
Length of Procedure
Each zone takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to treat. Treatments occur once a week for 4-8 weeks, the average number of treatments is 6. At the end of six weeks, generally 20% to 50% or more improvement is generally achieved.
None of the applicators used in the SpaMedica cellulite treatment have any significant downtime or risk.
Patients can expect an average of 20% to 50% improvement after a series of treatments. Most patients achieve 30% to 50% reduction following the program.
