What causes cellulite and dimpled skin?
Cellulite is not just a problem for obese or overweight individuals. Even thin people can develop lumps and bumps on their stomach, hips, thighs, and other areas due to the unique way fat cells and connective tissue interact. Genetics, hormone changes, and lifestyle choices can all contribute to the development of cellulite. Luckily, there are ways to reduce cellulite and achieve smoother skin.
How does Cellulaze work on cellulite?
Cellulite reduction is ideal for patients who are at a healthy weight and want to reduce one or more areas with dimpled skin. The Cellulaze system requires a very thin laser wand that is inserted just beneath the tissue. Laser energy melts away small fat deposits and separates fibrous bands that create the appearance of cellulite. Dr. Sotomayor can complete this procedure in less than an hour, and Peachtree Corners and Atlanta patients can return home on the same day.
How long do Cellulaze results last?
As we mentioned, most patients enjoy virtually cellulite-free skin for up to one year with laser treatment. This timeline does vary based on factors like weight fluctuations and lifestyle choices. Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta can provide a more detailed estimate of your timeline during an initial consultation. Dr. Sotomayor has helped countless patients reduce dimpled skin and achieve long-lasting, beautiful outcomes.
Can I prolong Cellulaze results?
Even though Cellulaze is not considered permanent, there are ways to keep your skin looking smooth and almost cellulite-free for as long as possible. First, it is important to maintain a healthy weight. Large fluctuations in weight can cause the skin to stretch and dimple once again. Most people accomplish this through a simple diet and exercise program.
The second way to prolong results is to avoid engaging in activities that damage the skin and contribute to collagen and elastin breakdown. This includes excessive smoking and sun exposure. Patients are encouraged to consider follow-up laser treatments every year or as recommended. This will ensure that your skin remains smooth and youthful for years to come.
