What Is Laser Cellulite Treatment?
When the body senses heat in the dermis layer of the skin, it assumes there has been a wound to the skin. This initiates a wound-healing response, where the body remodels the existing collagen in the treated area. More importantly, it also signals for new production of collagen to send to the area to “heal” the perceived wound (even though there is not any actual wound whatsoever). Collagen is the protein responsible for providing the underlying structure for our skin. This lattice-like framework supports the skin and keeps it firm and smooth.
But collagen production decreases one additional percentage point every year after we turn 20. That’s why our skin sags and forms wrinkles and lines with age. This sagging, thinning skin also increases the appearance of cellulite.
The laser energy delivered by ResurFX tightens the tissues, leaving the skin smoother and more lifted. This masks the appearance of cellulite.
Benefits Of ResurFX Cellulite Treatments
Despite the claims of various balms and creams on late night TV, there is no magic solution for cellulite. Approximately 90 percent of the population have cellulite somewhere on their body. It’s simply a result of the tissue bands under the skin that are like vertical bars, trapping pockets of fat between them. The fat trapped by these tight bands pushes upward against the skin, creating lumps on the surface next to depressions where the connective bands attach beneath. This is the familiar orange peel look of cellulite. This only gets worse as we age and our skin thins and collagen decreases.
ResurFX Laser energy effectively thickens the skin by delivering new supplies of collagen. This helps mask the underlying cellulite beneath.
These treatments are non-invasive and comfortable. Our BodiSculpting Specialists ResurFX cellulite treatments take 1-2 hours. Your treatment time will include topical numbing of the area to assist in a more comfortable experience.
