Cellulite Q&A

Why do I have cellulite?

Nobody knows what causes cellulite, but many believe it's related to hormones. It's much more common in women than in men.

While you may think that cellulite is a kind of fat, it’s a condition in which fibrous bands grow from your skin down through the muscle, pulling on the fat between. You can picture the cellulite bands as the buttons on a tufted couch or pillow, which explains the similar look of cellulite dimples.

Why can’t I get rid of cellulite?

Because cellulite isn’t a type of fat, but an aberration of your skin’s structure, it won’t go away no matter how much weight you lose. In fact, the thinner you get, the more obvious your cellulite might appear.

The only way you can eliminate cellulite is to address the fibrous bands that pull your fat into tufts. Q-Care Aesthetic Laser Care offers TempSure to soften the bands and create a smoother, more uniform look.

How does TempSure get rid of cellulite?

TempSure’s laser energy improves your cellulite in three ways:

  1. TempSure melts away the excess fat cells in the cellulite tufts.
  2. The heat from the laser softens the fibrous bands that pull on your skin.
  3. TempSure triggers your skin to produce more collagen.

Collagen is one of the building blocks of healthy skin. When your skin has more collagen, it looks and feels firmer, more resilient, and younger. Instead of “cottage cheese” thighs, your treated areas are slimmer and smoother.

How long does TempSure take to work?

A TempSure cellulite treatment only takes about 25 minutes. Dr. Charlotten or another Q-Care expert places up to four applicators for maximum efficiency.

Your body begins to expel destroyed fat cells over the next 6-12 weeks, while also producing more collagen at that time. You may need a series of treatments to get optimal improvement in your cellulite. Individual results may vary.

Does TempSure hurt?

Most men and women find TempSure treatments to be relaxing and comfortable. You may feel some warm sensations, but the TempSure applicators have a special cooling system to prevent pain.
