Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has a dimpled, lumpy, appearance. It is extremely common, and about 80-90% of women will experience it at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, diet, exercise, and smoking cessation may not necessarily prevent you from developing cellulite. However, Dr. Fakheri offers a breakthrough, highly effective treatment for cellulite. With Profound microneedling, Dr. Fakheri offers a new, minimally invasive, one-time treatment for her patients.
The Profound Approach to Cellulite Treatment
The fibrous cords of connective tissue under your skin hold the dermis layer to the adjacent muscle. But in some areas, these cords can align vertically and create uneven sections in between, forming small pockets where fat (adipose tissue) collects. As the fat cells begin to push up towards the skin surface, they produce a lumpiness that is diagnosed as cellulite.
With Profound, Dr. Fakheri provides her patients a simple, painless, non-surgical treatment to remove or reduce the cellulite by targeting the origin of the problem – recalibrating the fibrous cords that hold your skin and breaking down the trapped fat tissue.
How it works
Profound treatment uses multiple microneedle electrodes that are inserted into your skin surface to distribute radiofrequency (RF) energy into your subcutaneous layer, effectively stimulating adipose tissue dissolution and septae revitalization.
Profound is not only safe, but also clinically and scientifically proven to deliver temperature-controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy directly to the deep dermis. The thermal action also activates the body’s natural healing mechanism, which in turn stimulates the production of the skin’s building blocks – collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acids – helping to make the treated skin more firm and youthful.
