What is CELLULITE REDUCTION?
Nonsurgical cellulite reduction at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic in San Diego, CA, is a noninvasive treatment performed with advanced ThermiSmooth Body technology, which works by using radiofrequency waves to heat the deep layers of the skin. This process increases your body's natural production of collagen to produce a younger, tighter look to the skin. This simultaneously enhances the health of the skin and provides stunning and natural outcomes. A safe and efficient procedure, cellulite reduction therapy with ThermiSmooth is frequently performed for patients by our skilled team of medical assistants either by itself or to complement a surgical procedure, like a thigh lift or mommy makeover.
"Feel Beautiful is an amazing clinic consisting of kind-hearted people from the moment you enter & through & after the end of all your procedures. I had a great experience with Dr. Laverson who did my breast augmentation & I could not be happier with my results. He took the time to make sure I was sure about exactly what I wanted & provided me with great knowledge. Cherise at the front desk is so sweet & Kourtney is wonderful, too. Thank you for my wholesome experience! (:"- D.S. / Google / Apr 08, 2022

"6 weeks post op - happy with my results so far - From my initial consult with Dr Laverson I knew I was going to choose him as my surgeon. I had consulted with multiple plastic surgeons before my consult at Feel Beautiful and Dr Laverson put me the most at ease and I was most comfortable with the treatment plan he suggested. I thought I had an idea of what he would suggest because of my other consults (under the muscle implants and an anchor or lollipop lift and a tummy tuck, or extended tummy tuck as one dr suggested, muscle repair and lipo) but Dr Laverson was the first dr to recommend less invasive procedures. He recommended over the muscle implants and a donut lift, a tummy tuck and muscle repair but did not recommend lipo. This sealed the deal for me because it was obvious he didnt just care about selling more procedures but cared more about his patients and their recovery and results. After I scheduled my surgery everyone at Feel Beautiful was amazing and helpful whenever I called with any questions. At my pre op Dr Laverson went over all the aspects of my surgery( donut lift and 415cc mod+ implants over the muscle and a tummy tuck and muscle repair) and I was able to ask any questions I had. At my pre op I picked implants but a few days later I called because I had changed my mind about size and this was not a big deal at all. The morning of my surgery everything went smoothly and all the other nurses and staff who I met for the first time that morning were all great. My recovery has been smooth so far and any issues I have had Dr Laverson has responded to quickly and had me come in if he felt it was necessary just to be safe. I have spoken to several other of his patients who have all said that he is quick to address any issues that come up and although I was already happy with my choice this gave me extra reassurance about my choice.I am currently 6 weeks post op and while I am happy with my results so far I will wait to post photos until I am further along in my recovery and not so swollen anymore. I would 100% suggest Dr Laveron without any reservations to anyone considering cosmetic surgery."- T. / RealSelf / Feb 23, 2022
"Over a year since surgery - tummy is gorgeous - After consultations with several other doctors I met Dr. Laverson and I knew immediately that I would trust him with my tummy tuck. He listened, did not try to upsell to more extensive procedures (as both previous surgeons had done), was very thorough and meticulous, set realistic expectations, supported me during every step of the process, had a really fantastic staff (Kourtney is amazing) and he's absolutely masterful at his art. It's been over a year since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. My tummy is gorgeous!"- R. / RealSelf / Jan 27, 2022
Am I a Candidate for Cellulite Reduction?
Excellent candidates for cellulite reduction with ThermiSmooth are women or men seeking a nonsurgical option to minimize the appearance of dimpled skin throughout the thighs. ThermiSmooth Body may be utilized to help rid cellulite in many areas, including the stomach, arms, ankles, breasts, back, calves, chest, flanks, buttocks, hips, knees, and thighs.
What Are the Benefits of Cellulite Reduction?
Countless patients have utilized this treatment in order to enhance the appearance of their skin by safely and effectively reducing the appearance of cellulite on their bodies. Unlike fat, cellulite will usually not disappear through traditional diet and exercise plans. This makes cellulite reduction an especially desirable option when it comes to feeling more confident in shorts, swimwear, or underwear.
How is Cellulite Reduction Performed?
Usually performed as an outpatient, in-office service, nonsurgical cellulite reduction typically takes no more than an hour. Your technician will address the treatment area by gently shifting the handheld apparatus over the regions of concern, such as the thighs, arms, flanks, or buttocks. Our patients often compare their ThermiSmooth treatment to that of a warm body or facial massage. For optimal results, it's suggested that you receive 3 – 6 sessions spaced approximately two weeks apart.
What Results Can I Expect from Cellulite Reduction?
Upon the completion of your treatment, you'll be able to return to your usual daily routine; however, you should limit your exposure to sunlight for a few weeks. Because there will be no scarring or incisions as a result of your session, patients typically see results within 2 – 8 weeks, depending on the areas of the body that were treated. With nonsurgical cellulite reduction, your results could last for up to two years. Attending follow-up sessions is recommended to help maintain your smooth results.
