How Cavitation Lipo Can Improve and Reduce Cellulite

Even though somewhere around 90% of women have cellulite, making it extremely common and normal, let’s be honest – having those pesky bumps, dimples, dents, or an orange-peel appearance to our skin is enough to make any of us feel self-conscious and frustrated. And while it’s something women struggle with all year long, during the warmer months, we’ll do just about anything to reduce the appearance of cellulite on our thighs, buttocks, and everywhere in between. It doesn’t matter where you live, how old you are, or the size of your body – cellulite loves to show up and leave its mark.

While there are plenty of “miracle” creams, DIY-at-home scrubs, and even tools and massagers that promise to break down cellulite, the majority of them simply don’t work, or they don’t make enough of an impact to make cellulite noticeably less visible. And while there are surgeries and medical procedures that claim to help reduce cellulite, they can be extremely pricey and unrealistic for the majority of us.

Believe it or not, there actually IS an easier, much less invasive way of treating cellulite and smoothing and tightening the skin. It’s called Cavitation Lipo, and it’s quickly becoming one of my most popular treatments here at Tranquility Skin Services. In fact, Tranquility Skin Services is one of the very few places that offers Cavitation Lipo in Connecticut.

Cavitation Lipo is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that targets the fat cells that are deep under the skin, which are pushing up into the layers of fascia, giving skin a lumpy appearance. Cavitation Lipo consists of a 3-step process that gets to the root cause of cellulite instead of merely trying to mask the appearance of it.

n Step 1 – Fat cells are destroyed by low-frequency sound waves delivered deep into the skin. The sound waves cause the fat cells to burst, and eventually, they are eliminated from the body via the lymphatic drainage system.

n Step 2 – Radio-frequency skin tightening is used to heat the skin, which helps aid in the production of collagen and elastin. This step also helps to shrink the pockets under the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

n Step 3 – A vacuum is used on the skin to direct the fat cells to the closest lymph nodes in the body so that they can be eliminated. Once the fat cells are destroyed and eliminated, they will not return, though new cells could potentially be created down the road, which is why I recommend sticking to healthy lifestyle and nutrition habits.

One session of Cavitation Lipo typically takes 30 to 50 minutes, depending on the area of the body that I’m working on. Treatment areas include the tummy, hips, arms, knees, buttocks, love handles, back, and the thighs. Many people see dramatic results after a course of 6 to 10 treatments, though I have had clients who have a noticeable difference in the appearance of their cellulite after just one session.

“I work out almost every day and because I am in my mid-40s, I have some skin that is loose or has cellulite. In clothing, I am confident, but getting the body cavitation was a game-changer for my confidence level in wearing shorts and a bathing suit!” – Stephanie

“I have what I would consider to be moderate to severe cellulite on my outer thighs, which has bothered me and made me so self-conscious for years. After just two sessions of Cavitation Lipo with Shari, my thighs have not only shrunk, but the dents and bumps are beginning to smooth out. There is a noticeable difference in the appearance of my skin, and I can’t wait to continue my treatments on my thighs and also other areas! This works!” – Mary

“Shari knows exactly what women want! Whenever I approach her with my flaws and concerns, she always has the solution! The Cavitation procedure is an awesome way to get rid of my lumpy parts. I’ve gone for several sessions, and the results are mind-blowing! I can’t believe how smooth my skin is, and it lasts for months!” -- Stephanie
