Not surprisingly, one of the most common body complaints for aging women is cellulite. Try and try as you might, it seems as though no amount of diet and exercise can ever eliminate those unwanted lumps. Up until now there was little to nothing that worked to rid your thighs of the “cottage cheese” appearance. But thanks to Profound RF, you can now smooth away cellulite and tighten up skin at the same time.
What Causes Cellulite?
Many people believe that being overweight is the reason why someone would have cellulite, and while that can contribute it the appearance of cellulite, it is not the only factor. Anyone from every shape and size can experience cellulite and loose skin. Age, genetics, and sitting for long periods of time can play a significant role in developing cellulite as well. In fact, studies show that most women will experience cellulite at some point in their lives.
Cellulite forms when tiny deposits of fat push against the connective tissue just beneath the surface of the skin causing visible bulging as well as depressions. Women are more likely than men to have cellulite because of the way their fibrous bands are structured. Women have straighter fibrous bands, whereas men have more fibrous bands that crisscross which reduces the likelihood of developing cellulite.
Profound RF to the Rescue
Profound RF uses microneedling and radio frequency (RF) energy to activate your body’s natural healing responses and effectively reduce the signs of cellulite. The microneedling and RF combines the effectiveness of controlled injuries and thermal damage to trigger your body’s healing response. When this happens, it stimulates proteins like collagen and elastin as well as hyaluronic acid, all of which help create stronger bands and smoother, firmer skin.
Treatment and Results
How many treatments you will need will depend on your skin’s specific needs and how your body responds to treatment. Many women have seen great results in as little as 1 treatment.
After your initial treatment, you should expect to see gradual changes over the next 6 months. Results of Profound RF can last for years before a touch- up treatment is necessary.
