Tired of Dealing with Cellulite? Here's How You Can Diminish It

Cellulite. The very word is a source of great frustration for women of all shapes and sizes. And we say women because this lumpy, bumpy skin seems to favor women to an alarming degree — a whopping 80-90% of women report some degree of cellulite.

At Q-Care Affordable Medical Care, Dr. Kevin Charlotten and our team are proud to offer the latest, cutting-edge cosmetic products and services to our clients in the Elmhurst, New York, area, including advanced radiofrequency technologies. So when we searched for the best tool to fight back against cellulite, we found one that rose head and shoulders above the others — TempSure®.

If you’re tired of dealing with cellulite, here’s how we can make it fade into the background with TempSure.

A bumpy road

Before we get into our advanced TempSure system, it might be helpful to step back and take a closer look at what we’re dealing with. As we mentioned above, cellulite tends to affect women in far greater numbers than men. While researchers aren’t exactly sure why this is so, they believe that hormones play a central role in how a woman’s fat behaves and how connective fibers develop in her skin.

In fact, it’s worth noting that cellulite is NOT a condition that affects only those who are carrying extra pounds. Cellulite can develop in women of all shapes and sizes because it has more to do with your connective fibers than it does your weight.

These fibrous cords stretch from under your skin to the muscle below, and because they’re taut, they pull down, creating a dimpling in your skin as your fat pushes up and around the cord. Now multiply this by all of the cords you have in any given area, and the landscape can become very bumpy.

Smoothing the way forward

Our TempSure system works to diminish cellulite mainly by tightening and shoring up your skin. The radiofrequency energy we deliver through the TempSure device creates minor short-term swelling in the skin tissue, which may diminish the appearance of cellulite, and also spurs a collagen and elastin response in your tissue. Collagen and elastin are the primary proteins responsible for the tone and elasticity in your skin, so when we ramp up their production with TempSure, you benefit with a smoother, tighter skin surface.

The process

One of the things our clients like the most about TempSure, other than the great results, is that the treatments are noninvasive, which means there’s no downtime afterward. Most treatments take under an hour, and we keep you perfectly comfortable throughout. TempSure is equipped with a cooling system and temperature controls, so you should only feel a slight warming sensation.

When we sit down with you to review your cellulite, we come up with an appropriate timeline. Most of our clients benefit from a series of treatments, which we spread out to allow time for your body to respond.

Since TempSure works with your body, your results will be both immediate and gradual as you progress through your treatments. We say immediate because of the short-term response, whereas your increased production of collagen and elastin occurs gradually over time.
