What you should know about cellulite removal treatment

Thousands of individuals in the Portland area, the majority of whom are women, are troubled by cellulite. This dimpled flesh may have tasty names like orange peel, cottage cheese, or lumpy gravy, but there is nothing appetizing about the appearance. With effective removal treatment from Thrive, cellulite won’t keep you out of swimwear or yoga pants.

Myths and gimmicks

There have long been “snake oil” preparations and gadgets that claim to eliminate cellulite. While healthy, moisturized skin slightly improves the appearance of cellulite, topical treatments have little effect beyond surface hydration. Cellulite is the result of subcutaneous fat and retained fluids pushing up against fibrous collagen bands in skin. Knobby massage tools don’t penetrate deep enough to release these bands. In addition, crash dieting can make cellulite more noticeable by thinning skin and reducing muscle tone.

A solution backed by science

Non-invasive Cellutone harnesses the power of targeted vibration to eliminate underlying causes of cellulite. Focused mechanical vibration goes deep into tissues, boosting oxygen and blood supply in treated areas to reduce build-up of interstitial fluid. Once waste is naturally eliminated, skin becomes smoother without surgery.

Important points to remember:

  • Cellutone can be administered alone, or to enhance the benefits of Exilis radiofrequency energy skin tightening and body contouring treatment.
  • No anesthetic is needed. Cellutone is described as painless or minimal discomfort by most patients.
  • There is no downtime following treatment.
  • You can expect visible improvement after just one session.

Cellutone cellulite removal treatment and Exilis skin tightening and fat reduction are just two examples of the hi-tech, non-invasive solutions available at Thrive. Dr. Adam Maddox and his team are trained and experienced in many contemporary techniques to help you look your best.
