Cellulite is a common cosmetic issue for men and women of all ages. As you grow and your cells age, cellulite begins to appear in areas like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and even arms. Your body has a network of connective tissue under the skin, but as you age, the fat cells from underneath begin to penetrate this layer, appearing as bumps under the skin. This used to be notoriously difficult to treat, but thanks to technological developments, there are ways to reduce cellulite in just a few non-invasive treatments.
The best procedures and tech for non-invasive cellulite removal in 2023 all require little to no downtime, take just a few sessions to complete, and are done by experienced doctors who oversee the whole process.
Thermage for Cellulite Removal
This brand-name technology utilizes radio frequency and a cooling piece to apply the right amount of heat to the dermis, helping to melt and disperse the pockets of fat. It only takes one treatment, and you will see results gradually over the span of six months. This non-invasive cellulite removal method has been used for years. It increases the body’s production of collagen and continues that process over time to keep your skin looking young and healthy.
This treatment uses a machine with specially set radio frequencies that gradually heat the layers of fat tissue, creating a metabolic breakdown. This process eventually makes the skin look smoother and firmer. The physician will move the TriPollar RF handpiece over the affected area and the patient usually feels little to no discomfort.
Why are These the Best Non-Invasive Options?
There are dozens of different types of procedures, creams, and options out there on the market. It’s important to do research and speak to a physician who can explain the ins and outs of each method, and determine which type of procedure is best for you. With that, these two pieces of technology are tried and true — and minimally intrusive. Other non-invasive options can involve laser procedures that leave you in discomfort for a few days. With TriPollar RF and Thermage, it’s a simple procedure that is controlled by an experienced physician, so you can feel confident you’re in good hands.
It’s vital to be realistic about results from non-invasive treatments. It takes between eight to 12 weeks to see the results from these procedures. They’re also not permanent, so you should maintain a healthy lifestyle before and after. Surgery is more permanent and instantly effective, however, the process is not for everyone! Laser and radio frequency non-invasive cellulite treatments are optimal for a variety of people, including women who have recently had children, aging men and women, or after a process of weight loss.
