Cellulite Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is that dimpled flesh that you see on your thighs, hips, abdomen, and butt. Women are more likely to develop this fat, which can make you feel self-conscious in shorts or a bathing suit. Cellulite may develop on the breasts and upper arms, too.

You don’t have to be of an unhealthy weight to develop cellulite. It usually occurs because of the design of connective tissue underneath your skin that attaches to the muscle. As fat naturally develops, it pushes against your skin, creating the uneven surface of cellulite.

What is TempSure Envi?

TempSure Envi provides radiofrequency energy that tightens skin by addressing the soft tissue that lies beneath your skin’s surface. The energy gently heats this tissue to stimulate new collagen production and remodel existing collagen. Collagen is a skin-strengthening compound that your body naturally produces.

As a result of TempSure Envi treatments, the connective tissue that pulls down and causes dimpling loosens, so the appearance of cellulite is reduced. TempSure Envi also helps dissolve fat and toxins, which are then released through your body’s natural waste-removal systems, to reveal smoother, cellulite-free skin.

Do treatments with TempSure Envi hurt?

Treatments with TempSure Envi feel like a hot stone massage. Most patients tolerate the sessions quite well. You may have a little redness in treatment areas due to the increased temperature caused by the radiofrequency energy, but this fades quickly.

You require no downtime following treatment and can go right back to your normal activities. It requires no incisions, has no blood loss, and involves no risk of infection.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients observe a notable improvement in their appearance over the course of a few treatments. Dr. Payton develops a customized treatment plan for you, depending on your skin type and the degree of cellulite you have. Most people see improvement with three to five treatments, spaced about one month apart.

Over the course of these treatments, you’ll notice tightening of the skin over the areas with cellulite. The result is a smoother subcutaneous (under the skin) layer.
