Ask Cheryl: Body Contouring to Get Rid of Cellulite

illustration showing where fat stretch marks occur

A: Cellulite is normal fat which causes a ‘crater’ effect because it is trapped beneath the surface of the skin. This trapped fat pushes against the connective tissue, septa, causing the skin above it to pucker. Cellulite is more common in women and is commonly found on the thighs and buttocks, but can appear anywhere.

The most effective treatment for cellulite that we have found is RF (Radio Frequency) body contouring. The radio waves break down the fat, effectively melting the fat, to a liquid state.This allows the fat to escape so it can be purged from your body, thus reducing, or eliminating, cellulite.

RF treatments can be done in the summer, even if you have a tan. The treatments are comfortable and there is no downtime. Break out your swimming suits and shorts without worrying about cellulite!
