Despite the rumors, cellulite isn’t caused by weight gain. Rather, cellulite appears when the connective tissues in your skin interact with subcutaneous fat. Cellulite is characterized by dimples or lumps in the skin that appear when the connective tissues pull on the fascia under your skin. This means that cellulite can appear even if you’re diligent with your diet and exercise routines.
Cellulite is so common, that 80-90% of women experience cellulite at some point, according to a review published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology. Because cellulite is such a common complaint, there are dozens of creams and lotions that promise to eliminate cellulite, but too often, these products disappoint — simply because they don’t target those fibrous tethers.
What is Profound RF?
The Profound RF system harnesses the power of microneedling and temperature-controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy to banish cellulite. Profound RF is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed in our office.
Together, microneedling and RF energy eliminate cellulite by:
- Breaking up the fibrous cords that cause unsightly dimples and lumps
- Encouraging cellular renewal
- Promoting collagen and elastin production
During your session, one of our skilled providers uses the microneedling device on the layer of fat that sits under your skin. Once the microneedles penetrate the skin, RF energy is emitted through into the fat, which encourages the breakdown of the problematic tissues.
Not only does the RF energy break down the fibrous cords, it also stimulates collagen and elastin production, so your skin appears smoother and more firm. In this way, cellulite is managed from the inside out — never masked.
Just one session
Are you tired of applying lotions day after day that claim to eliminate cellulite? Profound RF is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite in just one session.
Even better, Profound RF is cleared by the FDA to smooth the area under your chin too.
What to expect after your Profound RF session
Profound RF is a minimally invasive procedure with limited downtime. A topical anesthetic keeps you comfortable during the procedure. It’s normal to experience mild bruising and swelling, but these effects are temporary. As collagen and elastin production is increased, you’ll see your final results peak a few months after your session. You won’t see results overnight, but that’s because it takes time for your skin to replenish collagen and elastin levels.
Don’t just accept your cellulite — banish it!
