No. The procedure is virtually painless with most patients reporting the treatment feels like a hot stone massage.
PelleFirm is recommended for anyone looking for a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite for a smoother, more youthful look. Tell your clinician if you have a pacemaker, defibrillator implant, metal implant, or autoimmune disease, as the PelleFirm procedure may not be right for you.
A series of weekly/biweekly treatments are recommended for visible results, with touch-ups every 6 months thereafter. Your clinician or aesthetician can recommend the right amount of treatments for you.
A single PelleFirm treatment can be performed in less than an hour. However, treatment time can vary from patient to patient based on specific goals and treatment areas.
You can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. Although there are no restrictions to sunlight exposure, it is always advisable to use broad-spectrum SPF on a daily basis.
The process of cellulite reduction takes time, and a series of treatments is typically required to see results. Since the effects are gradual, comparison with pretreatment photographs is recommended to demonstrate the results.
