Taking care of your skin and making it look its best doesn’t stop at getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Cellulite and the resulting bumps that build up in other parts of your body can be just as frustrating as other cosmetic issues. Fortunately, there’s a simple, painless way to give cellulite an eviction notice.
Dr. Mehran Baheri and his team at Baheri Wellness Center in Beverly Hills, California, specialize in helping you address flaws like cellulite and are dedicated to giving you the beautiful look you want. We use only the best and most advanced technology available including the Contura system.
What is cellulite?
Other than being a pain to look at, cellulite is a harmless skin condition. Just below your skin are compartments of fat cells separated by tough, fibrous cords. These cords are what connect your skin to the muscle below. Cellulite appears when the fat cells in those compartments push up on your skin as the cords pull downward. This creates the lumpy, dimpled appearance for which cellulite is famous.
Cellulite is most commonly found around your buttocks and thighs, but it can also show up in places like your breasts, lower abdomen, and upper arms. The bad news about cellulite is that you can get it at any age and at any weight. From puberty to retirement age, anyone can start to see the dimples develop on their skin. And while cellulite is more common after weight gain, you can develop cellulite even if you’re on the leaner side.
This all has to do with gender and genetics. Women are much more likely to see cellulite form because of how their bodies naturally distribute fat. Genetics also plays a role, as the appearance of cellulite tends to run in the family.
Although cellulite doesn’t discriminate against its victims, it doesn’t stand a chance against the Contura system.
How can the Contoura system help me?
Dr. Baheri is proud to offer the full lineup of Contoura products to address all of your skin and beauty concerns. From skin tightening to body sculpting, this system is equipped to handle your worst problems. Contoura is especially effective if your main goal is getting rid of cellulite.
The Contoura system uses a handheld device to deliver heat and radiofrequency energy into the deepest layers of your fat and tissue. This technology is able to pinpoint the exact temperature your fat needs to enter lipolysis, or fat-burning mode.
The heat and energy melt away unwanted fat and boost your body’s natural collagen and elastin production. The result is tighter skin, less fat, and no more cellulite.
What’s best about the Contoura line of treatments is that they’re noninvasive. This means there’s no need to go under the knife or suffer a long recovery time to get the look you want. Most treatments last from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the area being treated. Patients in the past have reported feeling a deep warming sensation as the device is moved across their skin; the process is virtually painless.
To get the best out of Contoura treatments, you’ll likely need approximately 6-8 treatment sessions each week until you’ve reached your desired results. From there, you’ll only need treatments to maintain your look.
The first step in blasting away your cellulite is deciding on which treatment is best for you. Dr. Baheri offers a wide range of Contoura products and matches you with the one that best fits your needs. Here are the Contoura products we offer and how they can help you:
This is best for larger areas on your body. If you have cellulite in areas like your hips, belly, thighs, or back, BodyFX is best for you. The handheld device easily moves across your body, delivering the fat-blasting, skin-tightening energy your skin needs to get rid of cellulite.
Dr. Baheri recommends MiniFX if your cellulite concerns are located in the smaller areas of your body including your arms, neck, and knees. The smaller device is able to get to those hard-to-reach areas where cellulite can hide.
PLUS is right for you if your cellulite is the result of saggy skin. With time, your skin loses its elasticity, which can result in the classic lumps and bumps that come with cellulite. PLUS works to tighten saggy skin on your abdomen, arms, thighs, back, knees, and neck so you have younger-looking skin.
No matter what has caused your cellulite or where it’s showing up on your body, it is no match for the Contoura system. Don’t spend another day unhappy with your skin. Call or send a message to Baheri Wellness Center today.
