About Cellulite Reduction
Regardless of how thin and healthy you are, unfortunately, there's nothing that can be done to stop or erase cellulite without assistance. Cellulite (a fibrous tissue) builds beneath the skin, mostly around the stomach, hips, and thighs, and can create a bumpy, dimpled look. Dr. May Kim, our primary care and board-certified family medicine physician at Family Center VitaleHEALTH in Flower Mound, TX, performs nonsurgical cellulite reduction. With our radiofrequency (RF) technologies, truSculpt or Secret RF microneedling, we can improve the appearance of your cellulite. By pinpointing the fibrous tissue commonly found in the buttocks and thighs with a minimally invasive treatment, the respective technology frees the bound tissue and helps smooth the area. In the past, cellulite was basically impossible to eliminate, but today, you can achieve great, visible results from our cellulite reduction techniques.
Cellulite treatments can produce real results with little risk for most men and women at Family Center VitaleHEALTH. However, you might not be a candidate if you have diabetes, varicose veins, an infection, or loose skin. Those taking blood thinners or who are pregnant should not have these treatments. Ideal candidates for cellulite reduction:
- Are at a healthy weight
- Have cellulite on their stomach, legs, or hips
- Have toned skin
When you come to your cellulite reduction appointment, we have different technologies that are selected based on the size and/or location of the treatment area(s).
Cutera truSculpt (monopolar RF platform)
With a handheld or hands-free truSculpt handpiece, you may have one area or multiple areas you would like to sculpt at the same time. Dr. Kim will determine which application will best suit your needs.
Secret RF microneedling
You may have the opportunity to have your cellulite treated with our fractional Secret RF microneedling. The microneedles in this Secret RF can be programmed to go shallowly into your skin or as deep as 2.0 – 3.5 mm and deliver temperature-controlled heat.
What to Expect
No matter which technology is selected to reduce the appearance of your cellulite, your level of comfort is our top priority. These treatments are all under an hour (unless you are scheduled for multiple areas). You can leave our office and return to your day, but it may take a day or so to lose the redness in your skin's color.
