What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a common, but an unwanted condition, it affects up to 75% of women. Cellulite occurs usually on the buttocks and the thighs and consists of fibrous bands in between the fat pulling down on the skin and causing that dimpling effect. Cellulite can be graded on a scale from 0 to 3. Grade 0 is no dimpling when the skin is squeezed, grade 1 is no dimpling when standing but dimpling when the skin is squeezed. Grade 2 is dimpling visible when standing but not laying down. Grade 3 is when there is dimpling when you are standing and lying down.
Treatment of cellulite has been an elusive ‘holy grail’ in cosmetic medicine for decades. Technologies have continued to advance but many cellulite treatments thus far have been mediocre at best. In the past, the treatments that have worked have been very expensive and moderately invasive with a probe having to be inserted under the skin to cut or laser the fibers. Janiga MD’s would like to introduce a noninvasive effective cellulite treatment with no downtime: Body FX.
Body FX uses a combination of clinically proven radio frequency and deep tissue heating to synergistically tighten the skin and improve cellulite. There is a warming sensation of the skin, but this is a comfortable procedure with most people experiencing very little discomfort.
Body FX is commonly used to treat the thighs, buttocks, or abdomen, but can be used in other areas as well. There is a smaller applicator called the mini FX that can be used to treat smaller areas if necessary. A package of sessions is recommended for best results and these results are long-lasting for the areas treated. As you develop more laxity or cellulite as you age more treatments may be desired to maintain your smoothed skin.
Results and Recovery
Patients will notice a small amount of redness in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. There is no downtime with Body FX, you can go back to work and regular activities right away.
