Radiofrequency, A Solution for Cellulite?

Apr 24, 2019 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

For many women lumpy, dimpled skin on the thighs, hips, buttocks or arms is a cosmetic inconvenience. They may feel self-conscious about wearing certain clothing, especially during warm weather months. Persistent subcutaneous fat, known as cellulite can be caused by several factors. Luckily, there is technology available to minimize the appearance. Radiofrequency (RF) is a promising technology for non-surgical body contouring and cellulite reduction. At our Dallas office, we use PelleFirm which delivers energy to the dermal tissue, heats the targeted treatment zone, and stimulates the fibroblasts that synthesize the extracellular matrix and collagen. New collagen forms in the dermis, resulting in tightening of the skin and minimization of the appearance of cellulite. The treatment is safe for all skin types, and lasts 30-45 minutes depending on the size of the area. A series of 3-6 treatments is highly recommended, with maintenance treatments done every 3-4 months to maintain results. Recovery time is minimal, some patients may experience slight redness and swelling, which lasts less than 24 hours. If you're motivated to get summer ready, schedule a consultation at our Dallas office today!
