Cellulite results from changes in the blood circulation and lymphatic system, which causes structural changes in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, collagen and proteins. Fat deposits stored between the skin and muscle tissue are grouped into sections separated by fibrous septae. As fat cells expand, the fibrous septae pulls against sections of fat resulting in a dimpled appearance.
PelleFirm is a non-invasive cellulite treatment that uses radiofrequency energy and massage to deeply heat tissues and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. The PelleFirm treatment is delivered using GlideSafe® handpieces that work in combination with massage heads to deliver radio waves into the skin’s surface. The heated massage facilitates movement of fluids which are then naturally evacuated by the body’s lymphatic system.
This innovative system is designed to help you look your best while temporarily improving the appearance of cellulite. Revealing smoother, tighter looking skin with PelleFirm.
PelleFirm is a comfortable, safe skin tightening and cellulite treatment that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. After the procedure you might have slight redness, which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during treatment and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.
The process of cellulite reduction takes time. Although tighter skin will be visible after the initial treatment, a series of 6-10 bi-weekly PelleFirm RF treatments is recommended for visible results, with touch-ups every 6 months thereafter.
For optimal fat reduction with tighter skin and the improved appearance of cellulite, Women’s Laser Center of St. Louis does offer a Fat Reduction/Skin Tightening package that combines a series of SculpSure non-surgical fat reduction laser treatments with a series of PelleFirm RF skin tightening treatments for optimal results.
The PelleFirm treatment is designed to stimulate collagen, firm, tone, and tighten, which makes it a perfect complimentary treatment to our SculpSure fat reduction 25 Minute Body Contouring treatment.
