Cellulite Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a condition in which tight adhesions between the layers of your skin and your muscle tissue create a puckered appearance on the surface of your skin. It isn’t clear what causes cellulite, but researchers think it may be related to hormones. It's more common in women than in men.

How does TempSure Envi reduce the appearance of cellulite?

TempSure Envi uses advanced radiofrequency technology to safely heat the deeper layers of your skin, without harming its surface. The gentle warming stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, the proteins that give your skin elasticity and firmness; the heat also breaks up adhesions that form between the layers of your skin, giving cellulite its dimpled look. The result is smoother, tighter skin and a dramatic reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

Dr. Kent also uses TempSure Envi to tighten and smooth wrinkles and fine lines, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Smile lines

Because of her training and expertise, Dr. Kent can perform cellulite reduction and skin tightening with TempSure Envi almost anywhere on the body.

What do cellulite reduction treatments feel like?

TempSure Envi treatments are noninvasive, and no anesthesia is necessary. You’ll recline comfortable, and Dr. Kent will apply the radiofrequency tool to your cellulite area. TempSure Envi has a variety of handpiece attachments that range in size, allowing Dr. Kent to precisely target any area of your body.

TempSure Envi treatments aren’t painful. You’ll feel a gentle warming sensation during the procedure. Most patients find this comfortable, and the treatment has even been compared to a relaxing hot stone massage.

Afterward, you may notice a little redness around the treatment site, but this typically subsides within a day. TempSure Envi cellulite reduction treatments take between 30-60 minutes, and you can return to your daily activities right after your session.

When will my results be visible?

You’ll notice an improvement in the look of your cellulite immediately. The full effects will gradually appear over the next several weeks as the process of cell regeneration proceeds.

Typically, a series of treatments are needed for optimal results. Dr. Kent will develop a custom treatment plan, based on how many areas you’d like to treat, their severity, and additional considerations.
