What is RESONIC?
RESONIC Rapid Acoustic Pulse technology is a non-invasive treatment to improve the appearance of cellulite. It is the only FDA-cleared device that offers some of the benefits of both common approaches to cellulite treatment.
Cellulite is a common skin condition that affects more than 82 million women.† It is characterized by an uneven dimpling in the skin, and often occurs in the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and upper arms. The appearance of cellulite is caused in part by fibrous septa, which pull the skin in the regions that it dimples. Septa are springy bands that connect your skin to the muscle layer underneath. These bands are often surrounded by fat cells, and over time can stiffen due to the effects of aging, weight gain, hormonal changes, or other factors.
What Causes Cellulite?
As the septa stiffen, they pull against the surface of the skin, creating the puckering and dimpling we call cellulite. Cellulite can happen to any woman at any age, and often has more to do with genetics than weight.
How Does RESONIC Work?
The device is placed on top of your skin and, while in operation, rapidly cycles sound waves through your skin to non-invasively cause 2 major effects. The Rapid Acoustic Pulse device physically changes the septa that tether the skin down and also helps restore smoothness to the skin. This process helps free the dimples we call cellulite, allowing the skin to rebound and gain a smoother texture.

What should I expect after a cellulite improvement treatment with RESONIC?
