What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a common problem that many of us experience. This issue refers to the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin due to excess fat. Both men and women can struggle with cellulite, but it is more common in women. This is because men and women have different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. Though it poses no health risks, this issue can be a sore spot for many who always work hard to look their best. At Montana Aesthetics, we want to help you tone your body, beautify your skin, and get you the look you’ve always wanted.
What Causes Cellulite?
This issue appears to result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer below the skin and the layer of fat underneath it. In women, fat cells and connective tissue in this layer are arranged vertically. When there is excess fat in the body, these cells protrude into the layer of skin, giving the appearance of cellulite. In men, this tissue has a criss-cross structure, which may explain why it is less common for men to have this problem.
Treating Cellulite With Profound RF Anti-Aging
The Profound RF treatment is an FDA-approved device that uses temperature-controlled RF (radio-frequency) technology. This system is clinically and scientifically proven to deliver energy to the deep dermis. Using microneedle electrodes that go into the subcutaneous layer of fat, the Profound RF stimulates the dissolution of the fibers that cause cellulite while triggering a natural healing mechanism in the body. The result is smoother, dimple-free skin.
The Profound RF procedure for cellulite at Montana Aesthetics takes 1-2 hours, depending on the area covered. Some mild bruising, redness, and swelling can occur after treatment but will go away in 5-10 days. Despite these side effects, there is no downtime after treatment. Within a few weeks following your visit you will begin noticing initial results.* Best results usually take 6-9 months to appear.*
