Use of a direct energy laser device is applied directly to the skin, significantly reducing the appearance of cellulite by breaking it down with heat. The severity of a patient’s cellulite will greatly impact the treatment and how aggressive it needs to be to achieve significant results.
After care instructions and expectations
Patients can return to activities of daily living, to high-impact aerobic activity and may wear any clothing. Your SpaMedica cellulite reduction treatment program will also be complimented with a recommendation for home based medical grade body slimming and cellulite reduction skin care which will help support and enhance your cellulite treatment results at home.
It is recommended that a single maintenance treatment is performed every three to four months to maintain your improvement and enhancement. This is because the skin thickening will degenerate with age and time and maintaining optimal skin thickness with a single bulk heating radiofrequency treatment every three to four months is recommended. In addition, any tendency towards developing subsequent edema to swollen fat cells will be mitigated with a single maintenance treatment once every three to four months.
Risks/Is It Safe/Side Effects
None of the applicators used in the SpaMedica cellulite treatment have any significant downtime or risk. Modest swelling or redness can sometimes occur and in individuals on aspirin, some bruising might also occur after the treatment, but this is unusual.
Toronto cellulite reduction 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. It is important that patients are realistically selected, as there is a range of improvement and some patients achieve better than 50%, but some patients achieve less than 20% improvement.
Our cellulite reduction treatment is ideal for those that want to remove cellulite on their outer thighs, posterior, abdomen, and arms, without the pain, risk, or recovery time of a liposuction procedure. Cellulite reduction can also be used following liposuction to speed up the results of the procedure.
Additional Procedures to Enhance Results
In general, individuals that have achieved a satisfactory result will go into their once every three to four month maintenance program and those individuals that want to achieve an even better result may one day apply a significant proportion of their non-surgical reduction of cellulite fees against a minimally-invasive CelluLaze™ or CelluTite™ surgical procedure that has been developed by Dr. Mulholland.
