Summer will be here soon, and we’re looking forward to pool parties and trips to the lake or ocean beaches. If the thought of displaying yourself in your new bikini in just a few weeks brings fear to your heart because of the way that your body looks, you’ll be happy to know that help is available.
You’ll be more than ready for bikini season when you choose PelleFirm, a Radio Frequency (RF) body treatment that targets problem cellulite areas in a quick and effective manner without surgery, pain or downtime for recovery. This FDA approved, non-invasive treatment utilizes heat to tighten the skin, making it smoother and reducing the appearance of cellulite. It’s been successfully used on problem areas including thighs, abdomen, buttocks and upper arms.
How It Works
RF energy and mechanical massage are combined to produce electromagnetic waves that heat your skin’s deep tissue without damage to the outer layer. This process encourages the production of fresh, new collagen and elastin while tightening the skin over fatty areas for improved overall appearance.
What to Expect During Treatment
If you enjoy a good massage, then you’re going to adore this treatment. Our technicians use a small, hand-held device that gently heats the areas to be targeted. The best results are achieved by keeping the skin at the perfect temperature for about five minutes, so treatment times vary with the area of the body being targeted. For example, a large area such as the entire abdomen can take 25 to 40 minutes.
Number of Treatments
You are likely to see improvement after your first treatment, but a course of treatment is recommended for best results. Most people sign up for four to six treatments at two-week intervals. Once your course of treatment has been completed, you can expect results to last up to six months with occasional appointments for simple touch-ups.
Possible Side Effects
Most people who have this treatment report no side effects, and they are able to return to work and their normal routine immediately following treatment. Some extremely sensitive individuals may experience temporary redness in targeted areas that generally subsides in no more than two hours.
