With the summer months coming up, you want to make sure your body is at its best. This means getting rid of cellulite and loose, sagging skin. At Beginnings Aesthetic and Wellness, Dr. Thomas Theocharides offers ThermiSmooth® Body, a cellulite treatment in Red Bank, NJ, which is specially formulated to take care of these concerns.
Why Do I Have Cellulite and Loose Skin?
As we get older, we lose collagen in our skin. This means that it’s looser and may start to hang and sag off of the body. For women, pregnancy can also lead to changes in the body and cause more of a chance to experience sagging skin and cellulite. Other factors such as heredity, gender, the amount of fat on your body, and where it’s located can all determine whether or not you’re going to develop cellulite.
What is the Process of ThermiSmooth® Body?
ThermiSmooth® Body is a non-invasive procedure that’s comfortable for the patient and requires no anesthesia. It utilizes a handheld electrode that emits radiofrequency energy. Many patients report that it just feels like a warm massage. It gradually heats up the surface of your skin, targeting the areas where cellulite is visible. The handheld device is just slowly swept over your skin.
Each treatment session lasts about five to 15 minutes depending on the area, with 4-6 treatments every 3-4 weeks. During your initial consultation with Dr. Theocharides, he will discuss the areas you want to be treated. Depending on where they are and the severity of the cellulite, he’ll determine if you are a candidate and also the number of treatment sessions that would work best to get you close to your goal. The results can last up to a year!
Since it isn’t an invasive treatment, you can go back to your everyday life immediately following the procedure. This is also a procedure where you see the results gradually. While you may notice an immediate effect directly after the procedure, the full results won’t show for about three to six months. It’s important to note that everyone’s body types are different, and some may take to the treatment better than others.
Am I Eligible for ThermiSmooth® Body Treatment?
Almost every woman, no matter how fit and active they are, experiences cellulite. Men can get it as well. Before the treatment, Dr. Theocharides will go over your past medical history and any current health problems you have. If you’re currently pregnant or have certain serious medical conditions, we may have to wait for treatment. Otherwise, ThermiSmooth® Body treatment is suitable for almost anyone.
