Patients who have cellulite often do not understand why they have it, or how to get rid of it. Cellulite comes from fat deposits underneath the skin that result in a dimpled appearance. The most common areas for people to see cellulite on themselves are the legs and buttocks. Cellulite isn’t a medical concern, but it can be an aesthetic one. We offer some effective cellulite reduction services, and below are a few reasons why patients love them.
What Is Cellulite?
The first thing you have to understand about cellulite is that it is not necessarily due to being overweight. That is why not all body contouring or weight loss procedures address cellulite. Alternatively, not all cellulite reduction treatments address body contouring goals or weight loss needs. We try to make sure our patients have a good understanding of the uses of each treatment, and we combine treatments whenever possible to allow you to obtain the best results.
That being said, cellulite is caused by fat, but it is not always due to simply being overweight. Hormone changes can cause cellulite, and since women experience some of the most drastic hormone changes of all, they are more likely to see cellulite on their bodies.
This treatment addresses the dimpled appearance of cellulite. It is a laser treatment that is effective at smoothing out the skin that is essentially being pulled-down by the cellulite structure beneath the skin.
It is one of the most effective treatment available for cellulite reduction. It allows the fibrous bands to release, which effectively fills in the dimples. Downtime after this treatment is very minimal. Most patients report feeling slightly sore afterward, but this feeling dissipates quickly.
This treatment uses ultrasound and massage therapy to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is different from Cellulaze in that it address not only cellulite, but excess fat deposits as well. The lymphatic massage utilized during Vaser Shape flushes away toxins and fats, which can allow some level of body contouring. This is a non-surgical procedure that results in little to no downtime.
Your body will look smoother, and it will feel firmer and tighter. This treatment can be used for cellulite reduction on the abdomen, back, arms, hips, buttocks, and thighs. Essentially anywhere you may be experiencing orange-peel skin, Vaser Shape, which can be used with Vaser LipoSelection, can help.
