Cellulite is a common concern for many women. It is caused by fibrous bands that travel between fat cells from the skin surface and attach to the underlying muscle.
This creates a rippled or bumpy appearance to the skin surface. Cellulite treatment is focused on breaking these fibrous bands and also reducing the amount of fat present. Tripollar Apollo is a radiofrequency device that tightens the skin to improve the appearance of cellulite and smooth body contours. This non-invasive technique gently heats the skin without harming the surface. To help reduce fat present in the area, non-invasive techniques such as CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ offers patients a way to target a specific body area such as the thighs or abdomen without undergoing a surgical procedure. CoolSculpting freezes excess fat cells and thereby reduces unwanted fat and can improve the appearance of cellulite, especially when combined with Tripollar Apollo.
