Dimples are cute, but not when they cover half of your body. So if you’ve tried exercise, diet and topical products without seeing a satisfying difference in your cellulite, you make want to make an appointment for a high-tech professional treatment.
One of the latest cellulite-reducing treatments is the cellulite procedure from Thermage, which delivers radiofrequency energy to the deep layers of the skin and is said to rebuild collagen and boost blood flow to the tissues to improve skin’s appearance. The company claims this single-session procedure produces immediately visible results that improve over time, like smoother skin and a temporary improvement in cellulite, which may vary depending on your skin type and age.
Another cellulite treatment is SmoothShapes, which uses a dynamic laser and light energy coupled with mechanical massage and suction. After about four sessions (treatments should be performed twice a week for four weeks), the company says you’ll see smoother, tighter skin with improved tone and texture. Maintenance may be needed once or twice a year.
While there are patients who are happy with the results of these treatments, no long-term studies have been conducted to prove effectiveness.
