When the skin appears dimpled and irregular, it causes an unsightly display termed cellulite. While this is true for both men and women, this is especially frustrating for women who always thrive to be slim with smooth and glowing skin. The unfortunate fact is that women are most likely to have this condition.
Thanks to the great technological breakthrough in cosmetic surgeries. The doctors can now treat cellulite following energy-based procedures. Radiofrequency treatment is one such process that is becoming predominant. It can penetrate deep into the skin for cellulite removal to rectify the orange peel look of the skin.
What takes place?
The doctor or the health care provider draws a grid on the skin to mark the affected area. A gel is then applied before starting the procedure.

A soothing gel is also applied after completing the treatment. Some clinics also use a numbing gel to start the process.
