The phenomenon of cellulite affects more and more people every year. Among the main causes are definitely genetics and being overweight, but especially sedentary lifestyle and stress.
Fighting cellulite is possible today through certain corrective actions. One of these is the use of radiofrequency (RF).
What is cellulite
The term cellulite refers to that skin condition in which a substantial layer of fatty tissue occurs close to the connective tissue. When suffering from this physiological alteration, the skin appears rippled, grainy in places.
The phenomenon is present in both men and women. In the latter case, however, with a very high percentage, between 80% and 90%, while in men it stands at 10%.
The condition can be categorized by 4 stages, from 0 to 3, describing the progress of the process.
Among the main causes of the phenomenon are:
- Water retention
How to fight cellulite
Daily habits play a major role in treating cellulite. It is very important to maintain a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, avoid bad habits such as smoking, and have an active lifestyle with several weekly exercise sessions.
Sometimes, however, all this is not enough, and one wonders if there are methods to reduce or defeat the phenomenon.
Cellulite treatment with radiofrequency
Thanks to technological advances in aesthetic medicine, we now have at our disposal several routes to combat cellulite.
Among them is undoubtedly RF treatment. This is a treatment performed with a particular instrument that releases electromagnetic waves into the areas of the body where cellulite is to be treated.
Penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin, these electromagnetic waves hit the fat cells responsible for the presence of cellulite, revitalizing the connective tissue where the ripples visible to the eye are present.
This mechanism occurs as the skin is stimulated to produce more elastin and collagen.
All this leads tomore toned, elastic, energetic skin, reducing and limiting the presence of cellulite.
What you need to know about the course with RF
Before undergoing RF treatment, it is essential to be examined by a specialist. In fact, depending on individual cases, there may be several contraindications to starting treatment. Among the main ones, the patient must not be:
- Pregnant woman
- Lactating woman
- Patient with cardiovascular problems
- Patient with pacemaker
The treatment itself does not involve significant side effects. The main ones may include the formation of localized redness for a few hours after the end of the session.
To have consistent results, it is essential to undergo several sessions over time. In fact, although even with one session the condition of the skin is improved, several sessions are necessary to be able to achieve the agreed goals.
Following each session the patient has no limits on activities and can peacefully return to leading his or her daily life.
The treatment is absolutely painless. The sensation is comparable more to discomfort than actual pain.
