Cellulite is fat deposits trapped in pockets constricted between connective tissue bands just below the skin. The bands can become tight and inflexible, further restricting the pockets of fat, which pushes into the skin and causes dimples and uneven surface. Enlarged fat pockets worsen cellulite and increase pressure placed on skin. Men rarely develop this structural issue, however about 90% of women have cellulite and it can begin to appear shortly after puberty. It usually develops on the thighs and buttocks and thin skin, as a result in aging, will accentuate its appearance.
Creams, lotions and pills are other treatments that have been used to try and eliminate cellulite. Unfortunately, these treatments require constant repetitive upkeep in order to achieve a result that Cellulaze can obtain in a one hour session. Over the next three to twelve months post treatment, results progressively improve because the fat is redistributed and smoothed out, while new collagen encourages elasticity.
Cellulite can be caused or worsened by an array of factors including: genetics, hormones, diet, exercise, stress, drug use, and medication.
Diet and exercise don’t always work to rid of unsightly skin dimples. The laser treatment Cellulaze is proven to show great improvement in eliminating the appearance of cellulite. The procedure is about an hour long and requires local anesthesia.
A few small incisions are made in the area of treatment. The Cellulaze laser is then inserted into a tube in the site of the incision. The laser targets the inflexible connective tissue bands and thermally destroys them, releasing the fat pockets and ultimately smoothing out the skin.
Although Cellulaze laser treatment is proven to temporarily eliminate cellulite, 93% of patients surveyed would recommend the procedure to a friend.
Another option for those wishing to get rid of cellulite is Velashape. Reshape your overall figure with remarkable results, including areas such as thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen and more.
VelaShape has been FDA-approved and has been shown to produce measurable results on national TV segments such as The Rachael Ray Show, The Dr. Phil Show, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime. Vacuum and specially designed rollers for the Mechanical Massage smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers.
Dr. Rokhsar believes that cellulite treatments modalities make cellulite better on a temporary basis.
