The majority of women, and some men, have cellulite. It is not always noticeable – in fact, you may not notice it unless you gain weight. It’s also more common with aging, since the aging process decreases some of your skin’s elasticity.
The fibrous cords that connect your skin to its underlying muscle have fat lying in between. When the fat cells accumulate, they push against your skin while the fibrous cords pull downward, creating an uneven surface.
Laser cellulite reduction in Orange County uses body contouring technology. These treatment sessions last an hour or less, but you will likely need more than one treatment session (spread apart by a month or so) in order to achieve the desired results. The only thing you need to do to prepare for the treatment is to make sure all jewelry is removed from the area that is going to be targeted.
During the treatment, radio frequency waves are delivered to your tissue in pulses that heat the unwanted fat associated with cellulite. The fat cells then die, and your body eliminates the dead cells in the weeks following your treatment. The sensation that you’ll feel during the treatment is warm and comfortable.
After the session, you might experience tenderness and redness in the treated area. These side effects go away after a few hours. There is no downtime associated with this laser treatment, so you can resume your normal activities immediately.
