Can't find a doctor? Thermage for Cellulite, SmoothShapes and Accent Laser for Cellulite are also excellent methods of treating cellulite. The Dermasonic method is a two stage process. First ultrasonic waves are used to penetrate the skin creating fibrosis breakage, stimulating blood circulation and literally softening fat deposits. This important and distinctive first stage greatly enhances the second stage of the Dermasonic method which is the dispersion of these fat deposits, elongation of connective tissue and the promotion of lymphatic drainage using specialized vibratory and suction techniques. A typical two stage treatment lasts 60 minutes and many clients experience visible results after only one treatment. In addition, a very common side benefit of the Dermasonic method is inch loss and improved body contouring. While there is still no complete cure for cellulite, the Dermasonic method is the most effective treatment we have found at reducing the appearance of cellulite by effectively targeting the subcutaneous fat layer, causing fibrosis breakage, dispersing fat tissue, elongating connective tissue and promoting lymphatic drainage. The cellulite becomes much less visible since the both the tension of connective tissue and the pressure of accumulated fat deposits and fibrosis build-up around the cellulite are greatly reduced and therefore a smoother, firmer, more toned look is imparted to the skin. Several treatments are required, however, most people with minor cellulite can achieve great results after only a few treatments with the Dermasonic method.Request a Consultation
