Beyond skin tightening: Is ThermiTight RF technology good for cellulite?
If you are troubled by cellulite, you are not alone. It is one of the most common concerns for men and women patients in Glen Ridge, NJ and elsewhere around the world. Although this is a notoriously challenging problem, it is treatable with today’s advanced technology such as ThermiTight.
Cellulite is most common among adult women, but it can affect anyone of any age. Many people think that it is a different, and particularly stubborn type of fat. In reality, it is no different from the fat on the rest of your body. Fibrous connective tissues, called septae, lose flexibility and harden. This prevents the skin from stretching smoothly as fat cells expand, resulting in a puckered, lumpy appearance.
Gaining weight often makes cellulite more predominant, because there is a greater amount of fat pushing against the connective tissue. For the same reason, weight loss may reduce the appearance of cellulite. However, dieting is not a solution. Even very thin people frequently have cellulite.

Technically, cellulite cannot be removed, since it is the result of normal body tissues. However, it can be smoothed out, which greatly reduces or eliminates the unsightly bumps and dimples. ThermiTight is one of the most effective treatments currently available. It is minimally invasive, comfortable, and involves little to no downtime. The treatment fights cellulite two ways:
- Softening of septae – ThermiTight delivers radiofrequency energy directly to the targeted area, softening hardened fibers and stimulating healthy collagen production. Radiofrequency energy effectively breaks up the fibrous bands that are responsible for cellulite’s dimpled appearance.
- Localized fat reduction – The procedure also creates a thermal reaction, heating and shrinking fat cells in the treatment area.
