Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissues between the skin, giving the affected area a dimpled and lumpy appearance. PelleFirm is an FDA-Approved non-invasive treatment that deeply heats and massages affected skin tissue to temporarily remove the cellulite. The procedure can be likened to receiving a hot stone massage.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What areas of the body are treated by PelleFirm?
PelleFirm is used to reduce cellulite and tighten skin. It’s often used to treat arms, the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, but it can be considered for nearly every part of the body.
How does PelleFirm fight cellulite?
The PelleFirm combines two actions in one device that work together to fight cellulite:
Radiofrequency energy: Radiofrequency energy penetrates deep below the skin without harming the top layer of skin. As the energy heats tissues, it makes the existing collagen contract, and it stimulates the production of new collagen. The new collagen gradually replaces old collagen, which strengthens tissues and tightens skin.
Massage: Small spheres on the PelleFirm massage the area being treated with radiofrequency energy. This encourages excess fluids to flow into spaces where they’re eliminated by the body.
What should you expect during and after treatment with PelleFirm?
You’ll feel a warming sensation as the hand – held applicator is moved over the area of cellulite being treated. The length of your session depends on the size of the treatment area. As an example, a full abdomen treatment takes about 25-40 minutes.
Following treatment, your skin may be a little red and you may have mild swelling, but it doesn’t last long. There’s no downtime after a PelleFirm treatment, so you can return to your normal routine right away.
