The term cellulite was penned in the 1960s, from the French word cellule or ‘small cell.’ Leave it to the French to put a name to what most women (or like 99%) experience at some point in their lives.

A type of light energy, HPL is absorbed by the color pigment in your hair and then converted into heat, ultimately disabling hair growth without affecting the surrounding skin. Like professional laser treatments, this process requires multiple applica
You’ve sworn off carbs and mojitos, and have been hitting SoulCycle® with a vengeance all summer long. But sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes, you need a little medical intervention. Liposuction is hard on the body at times, and recovery may take longer as you age. Luckily, liposuction has a new solution in town: HydraSolve™’s low-energy tissue liquefaction technology (TLT) is reinventing the nature of body contouring.
