What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by superficial pockets of trapped fat which cause the skin to have an uneven dimpling or orange peel appearance. Although rarely seen in men, it is present in 90% of women. Cellulite is most commonly located on the thighs, buttocks, and lower abdomen. It is unrelated to obesity, which is due to an increase in the number and size of adipocytes (fat cells).
The cause of cellulite is multifactorial an ultimately leads to herniation of subcutaneous fat within the fibrous connective.
The procedure – Tempsure® Firm
Tempsure Firm gently heats your skin to trigger your body’s natural response to produce new collagen. The new collagen fibers are tight, dense and neatly organized give in you tighter, younger-looking skin the decreased appearance of cellulite.
What does it feel like?
During body treatments, you will experience a gentle warming and massage sensation around the target areas. Most body treatments are performed in under and hour.
Tempsure Firm has been carefully designed with comfort in mind to provide you with a comfortable and effective treatment every time.
When will I see results?
You will leave with a natural glow and what patients describe as a “tighter” feeling. Just like most non-invasive body contouring treatments this isn’t a light-switch solution and most will take a least six week to show peak changes with one or more sessions required to see full results in about three months, so a little planning is essential.
What to expect after the treatment?
After the treatment, there is usually only a slight redness of the treated area. This redness generally will subside soon after. You will be able to return to your daily activities immediately following the treatment.
