Dimples look great on cheeks and babies, but most don’t like them anywhere else.
Cellulite affects women in overwhelming proportion due to their different skin structure. Connective tissue bands harden and contract with age, and together with increasing fat deposits give the characteristic look of bumps and dips. These fat pockets form the bumps, and the dimples are created by the anchoring effect of the connective tissue bands known as cellulite. Some fat deposits are stubborn and do not mobilize despite exercise and healthy diet.
Is cellulite keeping you from feeling content with your skin? Cellulite is a very common cosmetic concern in the United States. Cellulite often resembles the appearance of dimpling in the skin and is commonly found on the thighs, hips, and buttocks. If you are bothered by how cellulite is affecting your aesthetic, Ideal Reflection Medical Spa offers BTL Cellutone ™, a unique treatment to smooth away cellulite.
Cellulite is caused by an excessive amount of interstitial fluid within the skin. Utilizing the power of vibration, the BTL Cellutone™ targets the sources of cellulite formation. These vibrations strengthen your skin’s microcirculation and oxygen supply in the affected area. In turn, blood circulation is stimulated, and levels of interstitial fluid are balanced, correcting the appearance of cellulite.
BTL Cellutone™ is a newly-released advancement for non-surgical cellulite treatment. It uses acoustic wave therapy (vibration) to painlessly and with no downtime improve the irregular skin texture and dimpling associated with cellulite. BTL Cellutone™ improves circulation and lymphatic flow, mechanically treats the skin and fat, all critical as sluggish blood flow, inefficient lymphatic drainage, abnormal fat and connective tissue structure, and tissue inflammation are proposed causes of cellulite.
BTL Cellutone™ requires a series of treatments. They are usually spaced about 1 to 2 weeks apart, although this may vary, particularly if BTL Cellutone™ is being completed in conjunction with another treatment such as Exilis. Results may be visible after a few treatments, although skin texture may improve further a few weeks after completing a series of treatments.
This treatment should not interfere with daily activities and patients may immediately resume their normal routine. Side effects are rare and extremely mild in nature. Patients with easy bruising or taking medications or supplements that thin the blood could experience mild bruising, redness, or small red spots (tiny bruises called petechiae) following BTL Cellutone™ treatment. Brief pinkness to the skin is possible immediately following treatment, but this quickly subsides

Cellulite is a type of fat. Cellulite is made up subcutaneous fat, the fat that lies just beneath the skin. People will recognize cellulite as that unwelcome "cottage cheese" or "dimples" that appears on your legs, stomach, buttocks, thighs or in some cases other parts of your body. While regular exercise, eating healthy and drinking water will help decrease the appearance of cellulite, it will in many cases not remove it completely. In fact, cellulite appears in people of all weight and size ranges as everyone has subcutaneous fat deposits in their body.
