Have you noticed sections of dimply, puckered-looking skin on your legs or buttocks? You are not alone. Health magazine estimates that nearly 90 percent of women will develop cellulite (the term for puckered-looking skin) at some point in their lives. Women in Fall River, Mass., and the surrounding areas trust Dr. Mark X. Lowney of Advanced Body Sculpting of New England to skillfully reduce or eliminate cellulite and create the appearance of smoother and firmer skin. Here, the cosmetic surgeon explains how.
Before exploring effective treatment options, it is important to have a basic understanding of cellulite, its composition, and why it develops. Contrary to what some believe, cellulite is more than just pockets of stubborn fat.
Cellulite can be caused by aging, hormones, genetics, weight fluctuation, or any combination of these factors. Cellulite forms when the connective tissue bands in a certain area become more rigid, and the fat cells surrounding the tissue enlarge and start to push against the skin. This is what creates the puckered or dimpled appearance of cellulite. Thin or inelastic skin can make cellulite look even worse.
Some people are misinformed and think that losing weight or having fat reduction surgery with liposuction can improve the appearance of cellulite; however, merely reducing fat is not enough. Because of cellulite’s composition, treatment must address the connective tissue as well as the excess fat. Improving the thickness and elasticity of the skin also helps.
INTRODUCING CELLULAZE FOR THE EFFECTIVE TREATMENT OF CELLULITE
Scientists developed Cellulase treatment, which is clinically proven to reduce or eliminate the appearance of “cottage cheese”-like cellulite.
During Cellulaze treatment, a laser fiber is inserted through the skin in the problematic area. The heat from the laser disrupts and melts the excess fat, which is eventually filtered through the body naturally. The heat also releases the rigid bands that trap fat and stimulates the body’s production of collagen for smoother, firmer skin.
Because Cellulaze addresses each of the components that contribute to cellulite, it can produce noticeable results in a single treatment.
