Will My Cellulite Come Back After Cellulite Reduction Treatment?
Cellulite appears on the vast majority of post-pubescent women at some point in their lives (and a smaller percentage of men). It appears on bodies of all shapes and sizes and can be an inherited trait that's nearly impossible to get rid of.
Now, the team at Body Werks Chicago, also known as one of the South Loop's hottest sugar wax bars in Chicago, IL, is offering a state-of-the-art nonsurgical cellulite reduction treatment with Venus Legacy™ technology.
Keep reading to find out how it works on cellulite and for how long.
What causes cellulite?
In order to understand how cellulite reduction works, it's important to understand what cellulite is and why topical creams and other over-the-counter treatments can't alter its appearance.
Cellulite is created when fat deposits beneath the skin push up on fibrous connective tissue. This tissue keeps the fat from looking smooth on your skin, instead creating a dimpled, lumpy look, even if you're slim.
To deal with cellulite, you need to deal with the fat deposits and/or the connective tissue on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and belly where cellulite can occur.
How does Venus Legacy™ reduce cellulite?
The team at Body Werks Chicago can help you reduce your cellulite with Venus Legacy's technology. It uses radiofrequency technology pulsed magnetic fields to heat the fat under the skin, disrupting fat cells and allowing your body to flush them out through the lymphatic system. This cellulite reduction technique also stimulates the tissue under the skin to increase blood circulation, tighten the skin, and stimulate a healing response that prompts your body to create more collagen and elastin.
When all these functions occur, your body creates a more robust matrix under the skin to prevent future dimpling and lumpiness, in addition to reducing the stubborn fat you may accumulate in the hips, thighs, buttocks, and belly.
Does cellulite come back after cellulite reduction treatment?
While a treatment typically takes around 30 minutes, most patients need multiple treatments spaced at least 7 –10 days apart. The number of treatments you need will depend on your specific body type and how you respond to Venus Legacy. Most patients need around 6 – 8 treatments in each target area.
Full results can take up to 3 – 4 months to see since it takes time for your body to produce new collagen and elastin, and flush fat cells out of your system. The good news is that you'll see results for around 18 months.
Cellulite does eventually come back on those who are prone to it. The complete and total removal of cellulite is something that still eludes us. Still, cellulite reduction can help reduce its appearance in the long term by melting away problematic fat in stubborn areas.
Patients can return to Body Werks Chicago for maintenance treatments whenever they need to, which means you can continue to reduce your cellulite as long as you want.
