You know you look amazing in your bodycon dress, your skin-tight yoga pants, and your slim-fit jeans. But when it comes time to swim or sunbathe on San Diego beaches, your confidence wanes. You work hard to stay fit, and your shape isn’t the problem – it’s the cellulite that clings to your butt and the backs of your thighs. It won’t go away no matter how many dead lifts you do at the gym. What is a girl to do?
Thermage to the rescue!
At Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine in San Diego, we offer several different body contouring and skin tightening procedures, and Thermage is especially effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite.
What is Thermage and how can it get rid of cellulite?
Thermage is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that is proved to reduce the appearance of cellulite and to tighten, firm, and rejuvenate skin. Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat deep collagen fibers in the skin and underlying tissue while cooling and protecting the skin’s surface. The heating action stimulates the production of new collagen and rejuvenates the aging connective tissues responsible for cellulite, resulting in smoother, tighter skin, and the reduced appearance of cellulite.
Some improvements may be visible immediately after your Thermage treatment, and they will continue to gradually progress as new collagen forms over the next weeks and months. Full results are typically visible after 4 to 6 months.
Most patients require just a single Thermage treatment. Results may last for years, depending on the condition of each person’s skin, as well as their individual aging process.

Are you hoping to also reduce excess fat or improve your skin’s tone and texture?
You’re in luck! Thermage works well in combination with other treatments to help reduce fat or otherwise improve the body’s contours. Thermage can also be used along with other skin lifting, tightening, or rejuvenating procedures.
