Cellulite Q & A

How does cellulite reduction work?

Genesis Functional Medicine offers noninvasive radio-frequency cellulite reduction. Radio-frequency energy is ideal for cellulite reduction because it's gentle on your surface skin, yet powerful enough to trigger your body to make new collagen. 

During your treatment, the mechanical head of the treatment handpiece massages your skin to improve your circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage, which reduces the appearance of cellulite. 

The radio-frequency energy simultaneously heats the skin layer where you make collagen. This repairs the collagen that's breaking down and helps you make new collagen as well. 

Over time, the collagen gravitates upward to fill in any remaining dimples, further improving the appearance of cellulite and tightening your skin.

Your cellulite reduction treatments take less than an hour and might be as little as 30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

Where on my body can I have cellulite reduction treatment?

Radio-frequency cellulite reduction treatment at Genesis Functional Medicine is appropriate for nearly any area where you've got cellulite. The most common problem areas are usually:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms

If cellulite is a problem somewhere else on your body, just ask your care provider at Genesis Functional Medicine whether radio-frequency cellulite reduction is the best way to tighten and smooth your skin. 

How many treatment sessions will I need to reduce cellulite?

Most patients get ideal results from a series of treatments. Your care provider assesses your cellulite and talks about your goals with you to create a treatment plan that will work for you. 

Once your treatments are complete, maintaining your weight and having touch-up treatments once or twice a year can lengthen the life of your results. 

When will I see results after cellulite reduction treatment?

You might notice tighter skin in the treatment area almost immediately, but full results take time. Your body continues to make new collagen for at least the next month or so, and you’ll notice cellulite dimples fading away as the collagen appears. 

Most patients get progressively better results with each cellulite reduction treatment. In just a few months, you can have firmer, tighter, skin without those dreaded dimples.
