Genetics, aging, hormones, diet, and other factors can lead to the development of cellulite, one of the most common aesthetic concerns. But just because it is so common does not mean you have to live with it.
Cellulite treatments have come a long way in recent years, especially with the creation of Venus Concept treatments. Venus offers non-surgical, non-invasive treatments to reduce cellulite and target stubborn fat cells in the area.
Venus treatments are comfortable and quick, allowing patients to be in and out in no time.
If you are interested in learning more about Venus treatments for cellulite reduction, you can schedule a consultation at BeYOUtiful Anti-Aging Studio.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition that causes bumpy, wrinkly, or dimpled skin. It appears when fat pushes against the tissue beneath the skin, resulting in uneven texture. Cellulite is generally visible in the thighs, buttocks, and stomach.
While cellulite does not affect your health, it can be frustrating. Both men and women can suffer from cellulite, but it’s most common in women. As many as 80% to 90% of adult women suffer from cellulite somewhere on their bodies.
Individuals who suffer from cellulite might turn to diet, exercise, and creams marketed as a solution for the condition. Unfortunately, these usually provide little to no change in the appearance of cellulite.
Are you wondering how to get rid of cellulite? Fortunately, there have been several recent advancements in cellulite reduction treatments.
Non-Surgical Cellulite Reduction Exists with Cellulite Reduction Devices
Venus devices are some of the most popular cellulite reduction options. These devices use advanced technology to target not only cellulite but also nearby fat cells. Venus reduces cellulite and fat while helping to improve the appearance of dimpled or wrinkled skin. Treatments are reliable, quick, and effective.
How Cellulite Reduction Treatment Works
On the day of your treatment, we’ll start by putting the applicator on the target area. Once we start the treatment, the applicator will slowly begin to warm up until it reaches the desired temperature. The applicator should feel hot, but not too hot. We can easily adjust the temperature as needed.
Depending on which Venus treatment you receive, you may also experience a gentle suctioning sensation around the area.
Most patients feel Venus treatments are relaxing, often comparing treatment to a hot stone massage. You can feel free to rest and relax while letting the Venus machine do all the work.
Session lengths depend on the treatment area, but they usually take anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes. Many patients even come during their lunch break, as it is a quick and straightforward process.
What to Expect After Treatment
After your cellulite reduction treatment, you should feel relaxed. The treatment area may feel warm to the touch for a short time.
Because there is no downtime after a Venus cellulite treatment, you’ll be able to return to your daily activities after you’re done.
Additionally, there is nothing you need to do to treat the area after your appointment. You can feel free to return to work or your activities without worry. Even after your treatment is done, your body will continue to feel the effects as it works hard to reduce your cellulite.
Candidates for Cellulite Treatment
Candidates for Venus cellulite treatments are those in good health who suffer from cellulite and struggle to treat it with diet and exercise alone. Additionally, treatment is best for individuals who wish to achieve visible results without having any type of invasive treatment.
You may not be a candidate for Venus cellulite reduction treatments if you have any of the following:
- Active inflammation in the target area
- An infection in the target area
- Diseases or conditions stimulated by heat
- Metal implants in the area
- Certain skin-related conditions
Additionally, individuals who are pregnant or currently undergoing IVF should not have this treatment.
Should you have questions regarding whether you’d be a candidate for cellulite treatment, we’d be happy to answer them and discuss your options with you.
How Many Treatments Do I Need to See Results?
Patients typically need multiple treatments to achieve the best results. On average, patients need six to eight sessions, but the exact number depends on the treatment area and the amount of cellulite.
When Will I Start Seeing Results?
The exact results vary by patient. You might start seeing results after your first few treatments, but usually, patients see a more noticeable change after their last treatment.
You should also continue to see improvement in the three to four months after your final treatment. Because of the way the treatment works, your body will continue to experience positive changes after each session.
Are Results of Cellulite Reduction Treatment Permanent?
We might recommend maintenance to support the results of your cellulite treatment. Maintenance appointments are usually made every three to four months, depending on your body and concerns.
