Cellulite Treatment

Confidence is More Than Skin Deep

Glenview & Highland Park Cellulite Treatment at Skin Deep Medical Spa

Cellulite is a very common condition, affecting up to 80 to 90 percent of women.

People of every body type can develop cellulite, even with a healthy lifestyle, nutritious diet, and regular exercise routine. Cellulite causes a dimpled appearance to the skin in areas of the body like the stomach, thighs, and buttocks. Although cellulite is not harmful, you may wish to treat it for cosmetic reasons, especially if you feel self-conscious or find yourself limiting your clothing choices because of it. At Skin Deep of Glenview and Highland Park, our aesthetic specialists offer treatments with SofWave™. This ultrasound technology can significantly improve the appearance of cellulite in as little as one easy session!

Cellulite Explained

What causes Cellulite?

Cellulite refers to a dimpled or puckered appearance to the skin that commonly appears in areas like the thighs, buttocks, or abdomen.

It is caused when the subcutaneous fat layer pushes against connective tissue in the skin. Cellulite is very common, especially in women. Cellulite is not harmful, but many people dislike its cosmetic appearance, especially those with more advanced dimpling. Although weight gain can make cellulite appear more prominent, cellulite is not always tied to your weight and can appear in people with a lean body type.

Ultrasound. Ultra-Smooth.

What is Cellulite Treatment?

Cellulite treatment directly targets cellulite deposits on your buttocks, hips, thighs, and other areas where it’s a problem.

Unlike fat-reduction treatments like CoolSculpting® or muscle stimulation treatments like CoolTone™, cellulite treatments hone in exclusively on the cellulite. Even when you’re healthy, active, and at an optimal weight, cellulite can be very stubborn. Cellulite treatment at Skin Deep Medical Spa relies on high-tech approaches to smooth out stubborn skin dimples. Our SofWave platform uses ultrasound technology to precisely and gently heat the mid-dermal later, 1.5 mm beneath the surface of the skin, the location of your skin’s collagen fibers. This ultrasound energy boosts collagen production, helping rebuild and strengthen connective tissue to reduce the rippling effect from the fat layer underneath. When you come in for your consultation at Skin Deep Medical Spa, the experienced team discusses your needs and treatment goals to help you decide whether SofWave cellulite treatment can help you meet your goals for smooth skin that you’re proud to show off.

Get to the Source of Cellulite

What are the benefits of SofWave Cellulite Treatment?

Cellulite is famously difficult to treat. Although weight gain may emphasize the appearance of cellulite, the condition is related to laxity in the skin’s connective tissue, meaning that exercise and weight management are not likely to eliminate it. Topical products have also shown limited success in reducing cellulite.

Our SofWave device uses proprietary Synchronized Ultrasound Parallel Beam (SUPERB™) technology, which directs ultrasound energy into the mid-dermal layer, where it stimulates collagen production. Studies show a significant reduction in cellulite following treatment with SofWave. As little as one 30-45-minute session can provide smoother skin. With no downtime, SofWave merges convenience with proven efficacy. Our skin experts design a treatment tailored to your needs, ensuring a safe experience that helps you embrace your most confident look.

The Power of Collagen

Your Cellulite Treatment Procedure

Skin Deep Medical Spa performs all cellulite treatments on-site, making it convenient for you to schedule a treatment and get back to your life right away.

Cellulite treatment typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the number of areas you’re treating and the size of the treatment areas. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin to reduce the warming sensation of the ultrasound energy emitted by the SofWave applicator. Then, your provider will move the device over the areas affected by cellulite. You may feel a warming or tingling sensation, but most people find the treatment very manageable.

Be Unstoppable

Cellulite Treatment Recovery and Aftercare

There’s no need to pause your schedule after a SofWave treatment. The treated skin will probably feel tender for a couple of days, but you’ll be cleared to return to most routine activities. Just avoid excess sun exposure, intense workouts, and harsh topical products for a couple of days as the dermal layer recovers from treatment. Your Skin Deep provider will go over aftercare requirements with you to ensure good healing. One session is often enough to provide optimal results, but some people benefit from two. Your provider will carefully assess your needs and goals to create your customized treatment plan.

Flaunt Your Flawlessness

Cellulite Treatment Results

It’s possible that you will see some improvements in your cellulite as soon as one week after treatment.

Results will continue to become more visible as the collagen regeneration process continues for as long as 12 weeks. The areas treated will be noticeably smoother, with cellulite dimples visibly diminished. You may find it more enjoyable to wear shorts, skirts, and swimwear without self-consciousness about the appearance of cellulite. Results are long-lasting and can generally be well-maintained with a follow-up treatment after about one year.

Cellulite Treatment Frequently Asked Questions

It’s important to understand that cellulite treatment doesn’t focus on fat reduction. If that’s your main goal, CoolSculpting may be better suited for you. Cellulite treatment also doesn’t aid in weight loss. But, it’s a great way to get smooth and firm skin in the places where you have dimples and other textural problems. The Skin Deep Medical Spa team can help you decide whether cellulite treatment is the best way to achieve your goals.

At Skin Deep, we work with SofWave, an ultrasound device that targets the dermis, the layer beneath the epidermis (the skin’s exterior layer). Directing heat energy precisely into this layer boosts collagen production, which helps rejuvenate the lax connective tissue that is responsible for cellulite. The precision technology leaves the epidermis undisturbed, providing a gentle treatment with an easy recovery.

One to two treatments with SofWave typically provide excellent results, with many people achieving an optimal outcome after just one treatment. Your Skin Deep Medical Spa treatment provider can tailor the treatment as you go to refine your results and get the outcome you desire.

Cellulite can affect people of all body types and sizes, but it tends to be more common in women than men. Factors such as genetics, hormonal fluctuations, age, and body composition can influence the likelihood of developing cellulite.

Cellulite is a cosmetic issue and is not harmful. However, it may be a source of self-consciousness for some people, and treating it may lead to improved confidence and a wider range of clothing options.
