It’s estimated that 80% of all women have cellulite no matter what size, shape, or weight they are. This frustrating condition can be challenging to treat, which is why Radiance MedSpa provides multiple options for cellulite reduction in San Antonio.
Profound® Cellulite Treatment
A revolutionary effective method for reducing cellulite can be achieved with Profound SQ radio-frequency treatment. This is a one-time, FDA approved, minimally invasive procedure to improve cellulite by injectable radio-frequency energy to increase collagen, increase elastin, rebuilding the skin matrix, while additionally destroying fat cells in specific areas. The Sub-Q is specially designed to treat under the skin in the fatty layer.
Studies show improvement in 94% at three months and sustained improvement at 6 months. The Profound treatment was named 2018 “New treatment of the year” by The Global Aesthetic Awards, a leading aesthetic industry award.
The Profound system is the first and only FDA-cleared RF microneedling device that offers patients a long-term solution for improvement in the appearance of cellulite after just a single treatment.
Velashape Elos® Cellulite Treatment
Radiance uses VelaShape III, the most advanced version of the device. After over ten years and 5 million treatments, VelaShape is one of the most recognizable body-shaping devices on the market.
VelaShape is a FDA-cleared device that effectively and safely contours, shapes, and smooths the body. This procedure reduces cellulite and firms problem areas in as little as four treatments. The inner and outer thighs, the abdomen, and the buttocks are areas that respond well to VelaShape.
Post-pregnancy studies have proven Velashape to be very effective in helping Mom get back to pre-pregnancy form. The ideal candidate for Velashape is someone that is close to their ideal Body Mass Index. Usually this number is below 30 for best results. Velashape is not a weight loss solution, or a permanent treatment.
The typical treatment is once per week for four weeks. Some areas may need six to eight treatments depending on the area and amount of cellulite. After a series is complete, a maintenance treatment will be needed to maintain results.
What Does Velashape Feel Like?
Velashape is most commonly compared to the feeling of a warm, deep tissue massage. However, some describe a small “pinching” sensation. No medication or anesthetic is needed for this procedure.
What Are the Possible Side Effects with Velashape?
Most people experience no side effects at all, though a few exhibit some short-term localized reddening, or a slight bruising of the treatment area. There can also be some residual spider veins from the treatment.
Subcision is an innovative surgical technique that can treat distinct depressed lesions on the thighs and buttocks. These depressions are there because “scar like” tissue, septa, is pulling down on the skin surface creating this irregularity.
This treatment is only suitable for depressions that are apparent without muscular contraction (grade 2 or 3 Cellulite). It works by releasing the tissue pulling down the skin as well as creating new connective tissue deposition in the depression, filling it out and making it smoother.
How Much Does Cellulite Reduction in San Antonio Cost?
The price of your cellulite reduction treatment will depend on the specific procedure performed. The treatment area and number of treatments needed will also affect the cost.
