What is cellulite, and what causes it?
Cellulite is related to the growth of fat cells, but it can appear on bodies of all shapes and sizes. The bumpy and dimpled appearance that people associate with cellulite is caused by fat cells pushing against the connective tissue beneath the skin.
Cellulite is purely a cosmetic condition and doesn't cause any health problems or indicate that a person is overweight. While weight loss can sometimes reduce the appearance of cellulite, it occurs in 80 – 90% of post-pubescent women (but only around 10% of men). Any cellulite a person has is determined by genetics, sex, age, the amount of body fat, and the thickness of the skin.
How does Cellulaze get rid of cellulite on the buttocks?
Cellulite can be temporarily diminished with cosmetic procedures. These procedures need to reduce the fatty tissue pushing on connective bands that make the skin pucker and tighten in an irregular way. At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, Dr. Sotomayor offers cellulite reduction using cutting-edge technology by Cellulaze for patients near Peachtree Corners and Atlanta, GA.
Cellulaze is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to melt away fat cells. Once this happens, the connective bands that push against the skin are temporarily loosened, and the skin appears softer as a result.
While the laser creates a warm sensation and puts pressure on the skin, the procedure is not typically described as painful.
Cellulaze also works by helping to thicken the skin so that connective tissue bands are not as prominent. It can even stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, restoring a youthful look to skin on the buttocks, hips, thighs, and stomach where cellulite appears. After treatment, patients notice:
Improved skin tone and texture
You should see complete results in around three months as the fat melts away. Even better, fat cells are destroyed and cannot grow back (however, if you gain weight, new fat cells will form).
That means the results of Cellulaze are long-lasting.
Who should get cellulite treatment?
Cellulaze is a good option for those who are at a steady and healthy body weight and for whom weight loss will not help significantly reduce body fat.
Because reducing cellulite on your buttocks involves a small incision and local anesthesia, patients need to be in generally good health for the procedure.
