Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Cellulite Reduction Treatment?
Multi-Polar Radio Frequency technology, combined with Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (MP)², can reduce the appearance of cellulite. This is achieved by combining these two energies to produce heat directed into the skin, which stimulates both collagen production and the body’s own natural healing responses. Results offer the appearance of lighter and firmer skin with a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
We recommend 8 - 10 treatments of radio frequency for cellulite reduction treatment. At your initial consultation you will be assessed by an experienced practitioner, who will design your individualised treatment plan with you.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is minimal downtime with cellulite reduction treatment. There may be some slight redness or swelling at the treatment sight but this usually disappears within 24 hours.
Is Cellulite Reduction Treatment Painful?
Most people consider cellulite reduction treatment with radio frequency to be pretty well pain free. The heat sensation felt can be compared to that of a hot stone massage.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Areas of the body affected by cellulite - such as the abdomen, buttocks and thighs - can be treated with radio frequency to help minimise its appearance.
Cellulite is graded on a scale of 0 – 3:
- Grade 0 - the skin appears smooth when both lying down and standing. When the skin is pinched, wrinkle form with no visible cellulite.
- Grade 1 - a smooth skin surface when lying and standing but on pinching the skin, a dimpled, orange peel texture forms.
- Grade 2 - visible cellulite on standing.
- Grade 3 - constant appearance of cellulite both when standing and lying down.
It is typical to see an improvement of one grade with radio frequency cellulite reduction treatment.
