Cellulite Q & A

What causes cellulite?

Regardless of how much you weigh, you have a layer of fat cells beneath your skin’s surface. When the fat layer becomes adhered to the skin tissue above it, it can create a puckered appearance, known as cellulite.

Cellulite can appear anywhere on the body, and often appears on the buttocks and the backs of the thighs; it’s more common in women than men.

Other factors that contribute to the appearance of cellulite include:

  • Poor nutrition
  • “Yo-yo” dieting
  • Lack of exercise
  • Hormonal changes
  • Overall body fat percentage

Dehydration can temporarily make the look of cellulite more pronounced.

How does NuEra tight reduce cellulite?

NuEra tight is a non-surgical procedure that is similar to a laser, but instead of light, it uses radiofrequency waves to gently heat the skin’s surface as well as deeper skin tissue. The radiofrequency waves break up adhesion and stimulate collagen production to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

What areas can NuEra tight treat?

NuEra tight is FDA-approved to treat cellulite in these areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Bra line
  • Upper and lower back

NuEra tight is also approved to treat wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and cheeks, and to tighten neck skin.

Do cellulite treatments hurt?

NuEra tight has precise temperature control, so the amount of heat is always appropriate for the target area. Most people are comfortable during treatment, and some find the gentle warming sensation to be pleasant.

Treatments usually take between 10-25 minutes.  There is no downtime following the NuEra tight procedure so you can return to normal activities right away.

How many treatments will I need?

How many treatments needed vary depending on which areas are being treated and your individual response to treatment. The expert providers at Lincoln Park Aesthetics will develop a treatment plan designed to achieve your goals for cellulite reduction and a follow-up plan to maintain optimal results.

NuEra tight can set you free from the embarrassment of cellulite and give you the smooth, youthful skin you’ve been seeking. To learn more, schedule a consultation with one of the skilled providers at Lincoln Park Aesthetics. Call the office today, or book an appointment online.
