At Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology, the Profound® cellulite treatment is one of the most effective treatments for smoothing dimples and tightening skin in the buttocks and thighs for patients in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, and the rest of South Florida.
What is the Profound® Cellulite Treatment?
Cellulite dimples and indentations can appear on anyone, regardless of diet and exercise. Even the most toned athletes may have cellulite appear on the buttocks and thighs. Cellulite is not an indication of excess fat—it is simply a result of how your body stores fat deposits in certain areas.
Underneath the skin, fibrous cords of connective tissue secure the dermis to the muscle. In some areas, these cords align in a vertical pattern with uneven sections between them, creating small pockets in which fat deposits may collect. The fat cells push up toward the surface producing that characteristic lumpiness associated with cellulite. Profound cellulite treatment presents a simple, non-surgical solution to reduce or remove cellulite by treating it at the source—recalibrating the fibrous cords that support the skin and breaking down the fat tissue trapped between those cords.
How is the Profound® Cellulite Treatment performed?
The in-office procedure begins with the application of a numbing cream followed by infiltration of lidocaine into the targeted treatment area to reduce any discomfort from the Profound handheld device used during the procedure. Once the patient is numb, the provider uses Profound device to deliver RF energy to the treatment areas, melting fat and smoothing the skin. Patients can expect the treatment time to be anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the size of the treated area. Some bruising, redness, and swelling in the treatment area(s) are expected. There is temporary downtime due to the bruising and swelling, which can last anywhere from 5-10 days, however patients may resume normal activities without affecting results. The healing process can be accelerated by using topical treatments recommended by your provider and continuously icing the treated area. Within a few weeks, initial results begin to emerge with the maximum impact apparent 6-9 months. If a patient feels additional treatment is needed, they can be evaluated 6-9 months following their procedure for re-treatment.
