Cellulite? Don’t Grin & Bear It—Grin & Bare It!

No matter how much you exercise, what you eat, how much you weigh, or how old you are, sooner or later, you may be plagued with cellulite. According to some studies, 85 percent of women either have or will get cellulite.

Cellulite can appear on your thighs, your buttocks, and even your upper arms. Cellulite results from the interaction of fat and connective tissue below the skin’s surface. When the connective layer is strong and supple, the surface of your skin remains smooth. When the connective tissue loses elasticity, the fat cells push against it, causing the dimpling effect you know (and likely hate). This process can begin as early as puberty.

While plastic surgery or dermal fillers can address many surface skin issues, they are for the most part powerless against the unsightly onslaught of cellulite. There is, however, an effective, non-surgical treatment.

Treating Cellulite
If you thought you were doomed to endure the unsightly bumps of cellulite, think again. A non-invasive radio frequency procedure has provided remarkable results. At Belcara Health, we use a device called Accent XL, which uses a combination of radio frequencies (RF).

Although the technology is different, RF works the same way a laser does: it gets beneath the surface to affect the skin cells at the source. Accent XL treatment disturbs the cells that have lost their elasticity. Your body responds to the perceived injury by rushing collagen to the area. As a result, your skin cells plump up and diminish the cellulite dimples. The payoff is a smoother, firmer body that will continue to create new collagen, getting rid of cellulite long after the procedure is over.

The Accent XL procedure is painless and leaves no lingering marks or redness on your skin’s surface. The healing takes place deep within your skin. The treatment works equally effectively on your hips, thighs, arms, face, and abdomen. Best of all, your results are nearly instantaneous, and you won’t need to schedule any downtime.

Treatment Results
Although you’ll see results after one Accent XL session, you may need a few more sessions to effectively treat the stubborn cellulite that you’ve carried for years. For optimal results, you may need five to six treatments spaced two to four weeks apart. You’ll notice a dramatic difference within six months, and the results can last for up to 18 months.

Women of any age and with any type of skin can benefit from this technology. After your Accent XL session with a licensed professional at Belcara Health, you can keep the cottage cheese at bay with an occasional repeated Accent XL treatment.

There is no longer any reason to be plagued by dimpled thighs and arms. You can once again wear shorts and sleeveless tops with confidence after a cellulite treatment in Baltimore. Contact us for a consultation to find out if this procedure is right for you.
