Say Goodbye to Cellulite With Brand New Technology
Whether it’s associated with age, heredity, weight gain, weight loss or a whole host of other factors, many people develop cellulite at some point in their lives. One of the worst things about cellulite is that it’s often unavoidable. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce the appearance of this unwanted physical feature that is safe and effective. Learn more about cellulite and how to fight it, here:
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite occurs when fat infiltrates the deep dermal layers of the skin. The reason it appears bumpy and dimpled is because it is pushing up against connective tissue, causing the skin to pucker. Cellulite is not a medical condition and it is not harmful. However, most people prefer not to have it because of its unsightly appearance.
How Does Cellulite Develop?
Many people develop cellulite on their thighs, stomach and arms. Cellulite can appear on all body types, so having it does not necessarily mean you are overweight. However, losing weight or toning up the fatty areas of your body can help to reduce their appearance. While anyone can develop cellulite, it more common in women and appears more visible on those with lighter skin tones. It is also hereditary, so if you’re an individual having a family history of cellulite, it increases your chances of developing it.
Here are some factors that can contribute to cellulite:
– Slow metabolism
– Excess body fat
– Skin thickness (cellulite is more visible through thin skin)
– Skin color (cellulite is more visible through lighter skin)
– Hormone changes associated with puberty, pregnancy and menopause
– Losing weight too quickly
– Not getting enough exercise
How Is Cellulite Treated?
There are several treatments for cellulite on the market, ranging from creams to liposuction. However, some creams have been found ineffective and even dangerous, and the American Academy of Dermatology actually warns against using liposuction to treat cellulite, as it can worsen the appearance of it.
VASERsmooth™ offers a safe and effective solution. Designed to remove fat and smooth out fat cells beneath the skin, this new technology helps you achieve smoother, tighter skin. The VASERsmooth™ procedure is used to target fat and selectively cut through the hardened connective tissue that pulls skin causing dimples.
