How Does the RESONIC™ Cellulite Treatment Work?
Cellulite’s classic dimpled appearance is due to fibrous bands called septae. These bands connect the skin to the muscle layer underneath, and when they are too short to accommodate the cushioning fat cells—typically of the thighs or buttocks—dimpling occurs. Before now, only invasive surgical procedures could release the septae, requiring some recovery. RESONIC™ is a non-invasive treatment that is available to cleave those bands without cutting or bruising or long recovery.
RAP stands for Rapid Acoustic Pulse, and it works just like the name suggests. Rapid acoustic pulses create a soundwave repeated 100 times per second that vibrates through the cellulite tissues, breaking apart fibrous septae. This releases the septae from their tight hold and allows the skin to return to a smoother appearance. RAP also stimulates the fibroblasts responsible for collagen fiber production. Collagen is the protein that gives skin its firm structure in youth, so the denser the network of fibers, the tighter, smoother, and more youthful skin appearance.
Originally created to shatter tattoo ink into minuscule particles the body can metabolize for complete tattoo removal, Soliton realized RAP had additional benefits on the appearance of cellulite, and as such, RAP’s FDA-approval for cellulite treatment with RESONIC™ is a giant step forward in the aesthetics market as a non-invasive, virtually pain-free procedure for reducing cellulite. Dr. Tanzi and Capital Laser & Skin Care are true experts when it comes to the RESONIC technology as they were involved with the original FDA clinical trials.
