Cellulite Treatment Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a skin condition that makes your skin appear lumpy and dimpled. Between 80% and 90% of all women develop cellulite, but men can get it, too. When fat deposits distribute themselves unevenly throughout your tissue and skin, you may notice bumpiness or dents in the areas where you have the most fat. Cellulite is most common on your thighs and buttocks but can develop in other areas of your body and can vary in its severity.

What is cellulite treatment?

There are several treatment types that temporarily or semi-permanently reduce the appearance of cellulite. La Belle Medical Spa offers Cynosure® TempSure™ Envi as a solution for cellulite, a technology that uses radiofrequency to safely tighten your skin and smooth your cellulite, no matter the severity.

How does cellulite treatment work?

Cellulite treatment via the TempSure Envi is simple, quick, and painless for 99% of patients.  After pinpointing the areas that you need to target, Dr. Alireza Mahmoudieh massages you with the device. The TempSure Envi gently heats the area as it delivers the radiofrequency, which stimulates growth and regeneration in your skin.

You’ll need to come in for regular appointments if you want to maintain your cellulite-free look since it isn’t permanent, but you’ll see the results instantly after each session.

Am I a good candidate for cellulite treatment?

Cellulite treatment with the TempSure Envi is safe for everyone, regardless of weight, skin type, or other factors. Dr. Mahmoudieh will help you determine how many treatments you’ll need and how frequently you’ll need to get them for the best results. Whether your cellulite is hardly noticeable or it’s all that you can see on yourself, cellulite treatment can benefit anyone.

What are the risks of cellulite treatment?

There are very few risks associated with the radiofrequency cellulite treatment, but you’ll need to be aware of the potential side effects before committing to a session. Rare but possible side effects include:

  • Discomfort during the treatment
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Dry skin
  • Frequent urination following the treatment
  • Burned skin

If you have concerns about cellulite treatment, Dr. Mahmoudieh can walk you through the likelihood of negative reactions during your initial consultation. Most side effects are rare and you may not experience any at all.

If your cellulite is causing you to feel self-conscious and uncomfortable with yourself, cellulite treatments may benefit you. If you want to learn more about cellulite treatments and TempSure Envi, call or schedule an appointment online at La Belle Medical Spa today.
