What is cellulite?
You know it if you have it, right? Cellulite is that lumpy bumpy “cottage cheese” look that is often found on the thighs and buttocks or the belly. It is found more often on women than men causing some researchers to believe there is a hormonal link to its cause and others to suggest it shows because women have thinner skin than men. Either way, most women really hate their cellulite.
Cellulite is caused by fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. As the fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords are pulling down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling. In case you wonder if you have cellulite, you can just pinch a bit of skin on your thigh. If that pinched skin looks lumpy, you most likely have cellulite.
What can I do about cellulite?
Until recently, much of the advice given to women to reduce cellulite was to lose excess body fat, exercise with strength training, use some anti-cellulite creams, or indulge in often expensive salon treatments that produce mild, temporary reductions in the appearance of cellulite.
Now, there is something different. Now, you can try a medically approved technology to treat your cellulite in the safe environment of the RoxSpa – The safe and very effective ACCENT YOUR BODY™ treatment.
In addition to cellulite treatment, we have seen great success with the ACCENT™ to help contour and shape problem areas, such as:
What is an ACCENT YOUR BODY™ treatment?
The ACCENT™ is an FDA-approved, non-invasive, non-ablative machine using the most advanced radio frequency technology to treat cellulite (skin wrinkles). This FDA-approved medical technology is the ONLY system on the market that provides both unipolar and bipolar radio frequency technology. This is important because it allows the practitioner to treat cellulite at two different tissue depth levels. One radio frequency targets deep dermal heating that causes those deep bundles of fat to lose their ties to the connective tissue to bring about skin remodeling and new collagen formation. The other radio frequency improves blood circulation to the areas to help drain fatty deposits and toxins. The dual-frequencies work in concert to ultimately shrink fat cells leaving a much-improved overall contour of the skin surface.
Does it really WORK?
YES! At the RoxSpa we continue to see incredible results on cellulite treated with the ACCENT™. In addition to cellulite, patients have been so thrilled about the ability of this treatment to focus on fat reduction and volume loss on all areas of the body.
We have successfully treated patients’ love handles, abdomen, post-pregnancy bellies, necks and chins, hips, thighs and buttocks. Men and women have been equally impressed with their results. The results speak for themselves.
Does it hurt? Is there downtime?
Most patients report this treatment is virtually painless and feels like a nice, warm massage. There is no downtime and Accent™ RF treatments don’t require any topical anesthetics. The ACCENT™ employs continuous contact cooling which provides patient comfort and protection to the skin.
They can produce some mild redness at the treated site which goes away within an hour or two. There is no bruising and as long as the patient drinks adequate amounts of water to help clear the loose toxins, there is no pain following the treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients typically need at least 3 or more consistent treatments spaced every 2-3 weeks apart for optimal results. Once the series of treatments is complete than it is recommended that you maintain your results with a treatment every 3-6 months.
