Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. The condition is most prevalent in women. Cellulite looks like dimpled or bumpy skin. It's sometimes described as having a cottage cheese or orange peel texture.
You can see mild cellulite only if you pinch your skin in an area where you have cellulite, such as your thighs. Cellulite that is more severe makes the skin appear rumpled and bumpy with areas of peaks and valleys.
Cellulite is most common around the thighs and buttocks, but it can also be found on the breasts, lower abdomen and upper arms.
Apart from the fact that cellulite results from fat cells pushing through connective tissue, not much is known about the underlying reasons for cellulite. Still, there are some factors that are known to contribute to having cellulite:
- Genetic factors
Specific genes are required for the development of cellulite. Whether you develop cellulite may depend on your metabolism and the distribution of your cells.
- Lifestyle factors such as
- Consuming too much fat and salt
- Not getting enough exercise
- Sitting for long periods each day
- Wearing clothes with tight elastic
Tempsure Envi is a noninvasive radiofrequency treatment that can minimize fine lines and wrinkles, tighten skin and improve the appearance of cellulite. The device uses radiofrequency waves to deliver heat deep into your skin, triggering collagen production that results in more firmness and fewer wrinkles. It’s safe for all skin tones, and there’s no downtime.
It works best as a series of treatments. Every patient will have a personalized schedule, but you can expect to need at least four Tempsure Envi sessions, two to four weeks apart. Treatments can last anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area.
During your treatment, you’ll feel warmth but no pain as your dermatologist directs the handpiece over your skin. Similar devices have existed for years, but Tempsure Envi is the only device of its kind to emit radiofrequency that stimulates the nerves so minimally, allowing the staff at New Light to use a higher temperature and prompt faster results without pain.
Afterward, there are no visible side effects other than redness, which usually subsides quickly. Many New Light members say they noticed some positive results, including tighter skin, after just one Tempsure Envi session.
Results of the procedure are noticeable and almost immediate for most patients, and they will continue to improve in the three weeks following treatment. Your results from Tempsure Envi and the collagen generated are lasting; however, they are still subject to the future effects of aging and gravity. In order to fend off new lines, wrinkles, and cellulite, most clinicians recommend getting touch-up sessions every 6 to 12 months.
Cellulite never completely disappears, but Dr.Jeffery and his team at New Light, can help make your skin healthier to reduce the effects of cellulite. Skin rejuvenation and skin revitalization treatments can lessen the appearance of skin imperfections.
