Without professional assistance, getting rid of cellulite can be a long and frustrating process. Our team would love to help you come up with a comprehensive treatment plan that quickly and safely eradicates cellulite throughout your body. Once you have achieved your cosmetic goals, you can easily maintain those results by scheduling follow-up treatments at our office. Here is a closer look at some of the advanced cellulite reduction treatments that we are proud to offer our patients.
Cellulite Risk Factors
Cellulite is a very complicated condition, and that is one of the reasons why it is so difficult to treat with over-the-counter products. While creams and ointments will protect your skin from certain forms of damage, cellulite develops deep under the skin. This condition is the result of muscle and fatty tissue pushing through the connective bands that are just under the dermis. Both men and women can develop cellulite, but it is much more common among women. It is also a common problem among older adults who have gained a little weight over the years.
Staying at a healthy weight and protecting your skin from damage will drastically reduce your risk of developing cellulite, but some of the risk factors are completely out of your control. This condition isn’t necessarily dangerous, but many people find it to be unwelcome. If you want long-term results, then you need to consider making drastic lifestyle changes. You should also speak with our team of specialists about cutting-edge cellulite reduction treatments such as Venus Legacy and Lipodissolve.
Cellulite can be minimized with invasive procedures, but most patients don’t want to deal with the side effects of those operations. Venus Legacy treatments are minimally invasive, and you can immediately resume all normal activities after every treatment session. With pulses of radio frequency energy, we can break apart some of the connective tissue that is creating the unwelcome dimples. That energy also shrinks fat cells and stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. By addressing multiple risk factors, we can produce world-class results.
This procedure, known also as ‘non-surgical liposuction,’ works to dissolve cellulite deposits via injections of phospatidylcholine; this chemical is drawn from soy bean lecithin and comprises approximately 40% of our cell membranes. Injections are administered, after which the body processes the local cellulite over three to four weeks. Three to six treatments at one-month intervals are recommended for the optimal results.
This non-invasive procedure can be carried out almost anywhere on the body, and that makes it an ideal option for sensitive areas such as the upper arms. It is also an ideal treatment for severe cellulite in the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and flanks.
