Resonic™ Cellulite Reduction

Resonic is a brand-new FDA-cleared treatment option for reducing the appearance of cellulite. It uses high-frequency sound waves alone to safely penetrate the skin and break up the fibrous connective tissue that causes cellulite to appear on the skin’s surface.

For a better understanding of how soundwaves alone can accomplish this, a rapid review of cellulite may be helpful:

  • Cellulite affects most women (> 90%). It causes the skin surface to roughly resemble an orange peel, often in thighs, buttocks, and upper arms.
  • Beneath the skin affected by cellulite are its causes: Fibrous bands of connective tissue are tethering your skin in place to the muscle beneath it.
  • Over time, these fibrous bands get harder due to genetic, hereditary, or hormonal reasons, and they pull the skin downward. Simultaneously, the fatty tissue between these fibrous bands pushes upward.
  • Together, these factors give us both the hills and the valleys that cause cellulite to appear—with the hardening fibrous columns pulling downward to give us the dimples and the fatty tissue pushing upward to give us the mountains or bumps.
  • Resonic™ enters this equation above by safely targeting with soundwaves the hard, fibrous bands mentioned above that are a root cause of cellulite. Since these bands are denser than the softer surrounding tissue, high-frequency sound waves can be explicitly directed to break them apart.
  • While Resonic is a brand-new procedure that was just FDA approved, other current cellulite treatments accomplish the same thing, except they do it with blades that physically cut the fibrous bands (and require considerable downtime), or with injections that enzymatically cut the fibrous bands (and result in plenty of bruising.)
  • Thus, Resonic is a game-changing cellulite treatment that reaches a similar goal with little to no unwanted side effects.

How does Resonic work?

The Resonic platform uses proprietary technology to safely generate and emit high-frequency sound waves sent into the skin from the outside. Calibrated to target only the fibrous connective tissue bands that are causing your cellulite, Resonic generates a “Rapid Acoustic Pulse” of more than 100 waves per second. The repeated waves cause the fibrous bands to lose their hold on the skin and release it from its dimpled position, allowing skin in the treated area to return to its smoother and more youthful appearance.

What is Resonic treatment like?

Resonic treatments are typically not painful, though you may experience slight discomfort in the treatment area for the first few moments of treatment. The sound waves pass painlessly and harmlessly through the epidermis to reach the fibrous bands contributing to cellulite. If you experience any side effects, they will likely be mild redness and discomfort in the treatment area.

How long does treatment take?

Resonic treatments are done right here in the office and are completed in 45 to 60 minutes. After your treatment session, you’ll be able to return to your routine activities with no side effects and no downtime. You could quite literally saunter on in over your lunch break and walk out, having laid the groundwork for your cellulite to virtually disappear.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients require a single Resonic treatment for a noticeable improvement in their cellulite.
