There aren’t many health conditions that discriminate, but unfortunately for women, cellulite is one of them. Ladies of all sizes, shapes and colors suffer from these unsightly dimples.
As for why women are the target, you can blame science.
Anatomically, men and women both have bands of connective tissues, called septa, under their skin. Structurally, though, the septa are quite different. Men have sturdier bands that form in a crisscross pattern, keeping fat in place. Women, however, have flimsier, vertical-set septa, allowing fat to more easily push through to the surface.
The unfortunate truth is there is no way to completely rid yourself of cellulite, but thankfully there are steps you can take to reduce its overall appearance. If you’re ready to feel body positive, check out our recommendation below.
Treat Your Trouble Spots
Diet and exercise are great tools to help you lose weight and live a balanced life, but unfortunately they aren’t sufficient ways to erase cellulite. Trust in our team at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics to target those stubborn fat pockets. Dr. Birchall and our amazing crew offer a treatment to effectively address your cellulite concerns.
What is Cellulaze?
Cellulaze is an FDA-approved laser treatment that attacks the issue of skin dimpling head first. Backed by years of research, studies have shown an increase in skin thickness (25 percent) and elasticity (29 percent)—two notable claims that have not been made by any other cellulite treatment.
Why does this matter? Thicker and more elastic skin may help to smooth out your skin’s surface, resulting in an improved appearance of cellulite.
How Does it Work?
By using just a local anesthetic, a tiny cannula is inserted under the affected tissue to minimize the “orange peel” look. The laser serves by delivering energy frequencies, increasing the overall thickness and quality of your skin. The Cellulaze laser will then begin to release the fibrous bands that pull your skin downward, improving that unattractive skin dimpling look. The treatment will also effectively work to diminish those lumpy pockets of fat.
Is it Right For Me?
As a minimally-invasive procedure, Cellulaze is an ideal answer for those wishing their cellulite away. The laser works best on patients who aren’t significantly overweight, but those who are experiencing mild to moderate cellulite.
If you’re looking for an effective cellulite treatment without the long recovery period, Cellulaze is calling your name. In just one to two hours, you can noticeably smooth out the skin on your thighs, hips and buttocks. Mild discomfort will likely follow the procedure, but you can expect to be back at your everyday activities in no time at all.
Your desired results are achieved in just one session and can be noticed almost instantaneously. The treated areas will continue to improve in appearance throughout the next few months. With results that last about three years, Cellulaze is the perfect way to reveal a new you.
