Hi, welcome to mycellulitehelp.com. If you’re looking for more information about TPR cellulite reduction, you’re at the right place.
The purpose of this website is to educate women and men all over the world about what really works for cellulite and what does not – so let’s dive in with both feet! And please share with friends and family.
What is TPR Cellulite Reduction Exactly?
TPR stands for Tri-Phasic Resonator. It’s a cellulite treatment that was first brought to the market in the early 2010’s by Allied Beauty Experts. The device that’s used to apply the treatment uses three different approaches at the same time to get rid of those dimples – or so the makers say.
The three approaches that the TPR Cellulite Reduction treatment applies to the skin are Heat, vibration, and electrical current. The device has two hand-held pieces that are used at the same time to apply the treatment. One is a stationary sort of anchor, and the other hand-piece is moved around the area you want to treat.
A look at the TPR cellulite reduction experience
The experience of a TPR cellulite treatment is quite simple. All you really have to do is lay still and relax. Depending on the size of the area you want to treat, each session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 60 minutes. Each session is broken down into three separate parts:
Part 1: Toning
This initial part of the treatment is designed to work on the muscles under the skin. Its purpose is to start applying heat, the electrical current, and the vibration as kind of a warm-up. It gets your body ready for the more intense second part of the session.
Part 2: Pinching
Once you move on to the pinching modality, the two handles are used to pinch your skin and muscles. Supposedly this modality is meant to target fat and to tighten your skin.
Your practitioner will apply a good amount of pressure to get as much skin as possible in between the handles. This is the most intense part of your session because the intensity of the treatment is much higher. The pinching also makes the level of penetration much deeper.
Your skin will become more flushed with circulation, and more sensitive. It should not hurt so make sure you speak up if that ever happens.
Part 3: Gliding
This is the final part of your session. After the more intense pinching, the gliding is sort of a cool-down experience. It’s meant to relax the area in a very gentle way.
The handles will literally glide along your skin with firm pressure, in a very slow motion. The goal of this part is to make sure that the entire treatment area is reached.
Overall the treatment is quite pleasurable and should not be painful. The quality of the treatment will depend more on the person performing it that the machine. The amount of experience and skill that your technician brings to the table will make the biggest difference.
How safe is TPR cellulite reduction?
Well, it’s a gentle treatment. Although, since it uses electrical currents, please check with a doctor if it is okay for you to have it done. People with any sort of implants or medical devices should not undergo this option (I have an alternative for you below).
If you are pregnant, please double check with your physician as well.
Side effects include redness and soreness. These are local and should not last long. You should not experience any pain during TPR cellulite reduction.
How much does TPR cellulite reduction cost?
A very hard question to answer because economic climates are so different across the globe. However, you can expect to pay upwards of $100 U.S. dollars per session. As with most device-based treatments, the makers of the TPR device recommend having 1 to 2 treatments a week for 3-6 weeks. This can add up very quickly, and make it quite a profitable treatment for a spa to offer.
But if it gets the job done, many of us will pay the price. So, the more important question is…
Does TPR cellulite reduction really work?
The truth is that this is not a leading treatment in today’s industry. The three mechanisms that are used during the treatment ( heat, electrical current, vibration) certainly increase circulation – but that’s it.
The notion that they break fat down is not really accurate because, well, fat does not really “break down”. Your skin might look slightly more toned, but that is an effect that will quickly wear off when you stop getting treatments.
Your skin will be red from the increased circulation after the treatment, but the truth is, it does not do much. The likelihood that you will be excited about the results is very small.
Even if there are improvements after spending hundreds of dollars, they will probably not be major, and they will not last long.
Results from treatments like this one tend to fade away once you stop receiving sessions. It’s nobody’s fault. Actually, all results from any treatment will fade away if you stop. Any real change requires consistent effort.
If you want to get fitter, you can’t just work out once and then you are fit for the rest of your life. You have to consistently work out to get in shape and stay in shape – and reducing cellulite is no different.
There is some minor merit to the treatment because it was quite new and innovative when it was first brought to the market, but today there are much more effective devices than the Tri-Phasic Resonator.
You can get a much better bang for your buck with things like sound wave treatments (X Wave and Z Wave work quite well), and cosmetic acupuncture.
So, since it will take time to reduce and maintain that reduced cellulite, TPR cellulite reduction will end up costing a lot of money and it’s not even the most effective treatment out there.
In fact, the American Association of Dermatology does not even mention heat, electrical current, or vibration in its list of promising treatments. Note that I’m referring to a list of “promising” treatments – not even the list of “treatments that work”.
There is a world of better options out there
I have many years of research behind me, and there are much better options available in most places around the globe. If you’re serious about reducing your cellulite, here are some options.
Start by eating better and exercising regularly. Although these aren’t total solutions, they do help – and will lead to faster results from all other treatments, because your body will be functioning better overall.
Some of the most reliable treatments for cellulite are these:
Acupuncture for cellulite
This might not sound so attractive but it works, and I really like it. Acupuncture can really get you some great results for much less money. You can read more about it here!
Sound Wave Therapy
The Z Wave and X Wave are two popular devices that provide this treatment. It’s basically about sending sound shockwaves through your cellulite areas. And it can actually help! Although, results will be short term.
There are many other ways to reduce cellulite. These are just my personal favorites. Keep exploring and I can promise you that you will find what you are looking for – as long as it is realistic.
Wrapping up TPR cellulite reduction: Does it work?
It’s a comfortable treatment, but it is expensive, and it will probably not get you the results that you desire.
Heat, electrical currents, and vibration serve the purpose of increased circulation – but there are more effective ways of reducing cellulite. And for much less money.
If you’ve read this far, I want to honor and thank you. You are an intelligent person, and I have no doubt that you will find the right treatment for yourself – and you will get rid of cellulite successfully.
If you keep looking, you will find a way. I promise.
