Laser and ultrasound technology is incredible. It can cut through sheet metal, reduce wrinkles, measure a growing fetus, and carve a work of art from stone. But is skin tightening and getting rid of cellulite dimples and shadows part of the package?
There are some promising laser technologies aimed at skin tightening.
By using the benefits of radiofrequency, procedures such as Thermage, promise to stimulate the skin and encourage collagen growth. However, in various pieces of literature on the benefits of such non-invasive, FDA approved skin tightening technologies you will find the suggestion that getting rid of cellulite is a “pleasant side effect”.

While some hi-tech cosmetic treatments are combined in order to get the greatest benefits of the latest technology for your skin, the status of FDA approval does not transfer just because of association. So be sure to carefully read the literature so that you’re not confused or misled.
Laser technology, radiofrequency, plasma and other non-invasive skin care treatments are achieving amazing results to:
– remove unwanted body hair
– reduce the appearance of discoloration
– reduce the appearance of scars
Through “controlled damage” these lasers, yes the same technology that can cut through metal and rock, can be skillfully applied to the skin with the right type of laser or radiofrequency to handle several skin issues.

Results can take as long as 6 months to be fully developed; however, there are mixed reviews as to how effective the treatment is for skin tightening. While many treatment packages may suggest additional benefits to Thermage, cellulite reduction is not part of the FDA approved benefits of this technology.
An area being tested for skin tightening and cellulite reduction is with the use of ultrasound. The same technology that is used to measure growing babies is hoped to bring some positive body contouring effects and cellulite removal. Early studies talk about the benefits of gently bursting fat cells. However, since cellulite is not a body-fat issue, the theory may remain as pure hope and far-reaching speculation.
Testing for the technology’s ability to strengthen the underlying muscle fibers may offer better insight into how to get rid of the dimples, ripples and shadows which show on the skin’s surface.
The biggest confusion with laser, ultrasound, and radiofrequency treatments is that because so many women and men are embracing the technology and seeing great benefits to their skin, it’s easy to want to believe that it’s the long awaited fountain of youth, beauty, and supple, sexy skin. That hope that one laser can do it all is a combo of sneaky marketing and women desperate for a quick fix.
There is no doubt that thousands have experienced the benefits of skin repair and hair removal with these treatments. But the benefits most likely end there, because none of these technologies have been approved for the removal of cellulite.
True, some of the manufacturers of these claim to “temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite”; however, “temporary” should not be your long term goal, don’t you agree?
Supple, healthy skin starts on the inside, at the muscle layer level, and works outward.

These gentle, multi-dimensional body movements are NOT done with typical weights and machine type exercises. Most regular fitness instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method. (click to watch video)
