With the Alma® vShape Ultra Focused RF technology at Elite Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, AZ, we can reduce your unwanted cellulite of the thighs, hips, butt, and stomach with radio frequency energy. Even though this technique is not painless, we will keep your comfort in mind. Many of our patients, men and women, who have had cellulite reduction say that they feel a slight pressure or a mild sensation under their skin created by the radiofrequency energy to heat the cellulite combined with gentle vacuum pressure to increase the depth of the treatment. Drs. Matatov and Torabi offer this safe, noninvasive combination of heat and massage to break up and destroys fat cells that decrease the attractiveness and healthy look of the patient's skin and body contours.
At your vShape Ultra cellulite reduction session, our Aesthetic Technician will prepare you for the treatment in a private room. Using radio frequency energy and gentle vacuum massage, the technician will pass the machine over the area to induce apoptosis (fat death). All of the cells that are eliminated will be naturally passed through the body's waste system. The session should last between 1 – 2 hours. There is no recovery period in our office, and you will be able to recover at home, and avoid strenuous activity for a couple weeks.
What to Expect
The initial 1 – 2 days after the cellulite reduction treatment, you skin may be bruised, swollen, and red. These side effects will not last. Once the swelling goes down, you should be able to see your preliminary results. These treatments will need to be maintained every 6 – 12 months for continued improvements, less dimpling, and enhanced elasticity of the skin.
Cellulite can be found on thin or overweight bodies of women or men. Even though it is unattractive, it is not considered a serious medical condition. These treatments can boost the self-esteem of the patient.
