Do you have bumpy, uneven skin on your hips, thighs, or buttocks?

This can be a sign of cellulite. Cellulite occurs when the skin over certain areas of fat is pushed into the deeper tissues by bands of connective tissue. This creates an uneven surface in areas of the body such as the hips, thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and breasts.

Some women are more predisposed to cellulite than others. How much cellulite you have and how noticeable it is can be based on your genes, body fat percentage, and age. The thickness of your skin also affects the appearance of cellulite. People of all body types and weights can develop cellulite, and in some cases it can become more visible as you age and your skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity. This more easily exposes the rippled connective tissues underneath.

Cellulite can be caused by:

  • Hormones
  • Irregular diet
  • Unhealthy lifestyle
  • Accumulated toxins
  • Genetics
  • Weight gain
  • Inactivity
  • Pregnancy

The Dr. Cardenas Clinic offers its patients Fotona Laser therapy, a non-invasive state-of-the-art treatment that has shown remarkable results in several areas. Perhaps the most notable of these effects is the reduction of, and in some cases the elimination of, cellulite.

How can Dr. Cardenas‘s Fotona Laser Therapy reduce the appearance of cellulite?

Fotona Laser Therapy is a non-invasive procedure designed to treat numerous skin problems. It can tighten the skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and make the body appear firmer in areas where fat tends to reside. This cutting-edge procedure works through the use of laser light, which harmlessly passes through the top layers of the skin. When it encounters fat and collagen, the laser light is transformed into heat that shrinks and destroys fatty tissues while stimulating the growth of new collagen tissue. The result is firmer skin that looks smoother without the need for invasive surgical procedures.

Fotona Laser Therapy shrinks the fatty tissue responsible for pushing out the upper layers of skin. As the collagen layers beneath the skin tighten up, this produces a smoother effect that tends to prevent pesky fat cells from producing cellulite.

Cellulite Treatment Using Viora’s Reaction

Viora’s Reaction is a system that utilizes patented state-of-the-art technology known as CORE (Channeling Optimized RF Energy) for aesthetic treatments aimed at body contouring, tightening, and increased skin density, providing a full-body treatment like no other. This unique system works in harmony with the body’s natural regeneration process, providing safer and more efficient treatments for skin tightening and toning, cellulite elimination, and overall improved body contouring.

Viora’s Reaction is the only system that incorporates three different frequency variables to offer a wide range of treatment options. The system offers greater control, precision, and penetration when applying bipolar RF energy to heat the dermis, which then strengthens the tissue fibers and stimulates collagen production to improve dermal laxity. The built-in cooling mechanism, combined with CORE technology, allows the RF energy to stimulate fibroblasts to maintain more elastic skin, thanks to this increased collagen production.

Viora’s Reaction also employs vacuum therapy, which helps maximize the RF energy. As the RF energy heats the skin, the metabolic breakdown of adipocytes—or fat cells—increases along with the diffusion of oxygen. The vacuum intensifies the process, achieving deeper penetration that increases blood circulation, thus stimulating lymphatic drainage and improving the elasticity of the skin.

Worldwide results of this treatment have shown an 81% improvement in skin texture after one session, and 75% of patients recorded a reduction in circumference after two treatments. Aside from its impressive success rate, Reaction is a quick procedure that takes only 20 to 30 minutes for body contouring and 20 minutes for skin tightening. The entire treatment requires between 3 to 8 sessions depending on the desired results.

Triactive Laser Costa Rica

TriActive Cellulite Treatment

In the battle against cellulite, we offer a unique laser-based treatment device: the TriActive Cellulite treatment, an FDA-approved system that includes three separate phases to keep the skin smoother and more beautiful.

The TriActive therapy system attacks the problem by combining a low-energy laser to increase circulation, provide localized cooling to reduce inflammation, and create suction that promotes lymphatic drainage and stimulates collagen production in the treated area.

How does TriActive treat cellulite?

During a TriActive treatment, low-level laser diodes penetrate the skin tissue along with a deep massaging action that reduces cellulite and smooths the affected area. TriActive treatment improves microcirculation and stimulates the lymphatic system to help reduce excess fluid and toxins. This in turn increases skin elasticity and promotes a firmer appearance. It also softens the connective tissue that encloses fat cells, improving overall skin tone and texture.

In addition to the thighs and buttocks, cellulite on other parts of the body can also be treated, such as the face, hips, abdomen, upper arms, and neck. This procedure provides remarkable results before and after liposuction and after cosmetic surgeries such as breast augmentations, abdominoplasties, and others.

The TriActive treatment is not painful or as intense as a traditional massage. In fact, most people simply report that “it just feels great!”

The three phases of the TriActive cellulite treatment:

-Laser therapy, which stimulates blood circulation and restores the distance between fat cells and blood vessels.

-Cooling therapy, which decreases fluid retention in the tissue.

-Massage therapy, which facilitates lymphatic drainage.


How Long Does It Take to See Results?

While some people say they feel a difference in the way their clothes fit after just one session, most people begin to notice a visible difference 6 to 8 weeks after their first session.
