What Side Effects Could I Experience with Cellulite Reduction Treatments?

Featured Image

Cellulite is a common concern for many people. At Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta, Dr. Gerry Sotomayor offers effective solutions to reduce cellulite. One popular option Dr. Sotomayor offers is Cellulaze™, a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to destroy fibrous bands of cellulite. While generally safe, Cellulaze can have some mild side effects, such as discomfort, swelling, temporary numbness, and slight scarring. These side effects are typically mild and temporary, allowing individuals to enjoy the long-term benefits of smoother, more even skin.

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite forms when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, creating a dimpled, "orange peel" appearance. Several factors contribute to the development of cellulite, including genetics, hormonal changes, diet, lack of exercise, and overall lifestyle. Genetics can influence how and where your body stores fat. Hormonal changes, such as those during puberty or pregnancy, can make cellulite more noticeable. A poor diet and lack of exercise can also play a role. Fortunately, we can effectively target and break down cellulite using our office's state-of-the-art Cellulaze device, creating a smoother, tighter look for our Peachtree Corners and Atlanta area patients.

How does Cellulaze address unsightly cellulite?

Cellulaze is a specialized nonsurgical treatment that targets the structural issues beneath the skin that cause cellulite. Unlike topical treatments, Cellulaze works below the skin's surface to release the fibrous bands pulling down on the skin, increase skin thickness, and stimulate collagen production. This leads to firmer skin with noticeable cellulite reduction.

What side effects could I experience with cellulite reduction treatments?

While Cellulaze is generally safe, it's important to be aware of potential side effects. Some individuals might experience:

  • Mild discomfort or pain during the procedure
  • Swelling and bruising in the treated areas
  • Temporary numbness or tingling sensations
  • Slight scarring at the incision sites
  • Risk of infection if post-procedure care instructions are not followed

These side effects are usually mild and temporary, resolving on their own within a few days to weeks. Following Dr. Sotomayor's post-treatment care instructions can help minimize these risks and ensure a smooth healing process.
