The development and treatment of cellulite
- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
Women with cellulite on the buttocks and thighs may find themselves self-conscious about their appearance when they wear a swimsuit, shorts, or a short skirt. However, with appropriate treatment, patients can significantly reduce cellulite in these areas and improve their self-confidence. At Skin and Laser Surgery Center of New England, women are educated on the methods available to address this dimpling on the skin.
How does cellulite develop?
Some women believe that cellulite is caused by being overweight or experiencing weight fluctuations over many years. However, cellulite is not weight-based. It is unknown while some patients develop cellulite while other women do not. Cellulite occurs when tight connective bands in the skin cause the fat cells in the thighs and buttocks to pucker above. This causes the dimpling appearance of cellulite that can impact how smooth and youthful the skin appears in this area.
How can cellulite be treated?
The providers of the Skin and Laser Surgery Center of New England educate women on the ways they can treat cellulite. While it cannot be completely removed, certain treatments can be used to reduce their appearance and improve the smoothness and beauty of the skin in the area. Our team may utilize one or more treatments to achieve results, including:
- Laser therapy
- Light treatment
- Manual massage
- Suction treatments
To treat cellulite, it is essential that the tight connective bands are broken. This causes the fat to disperse properly underneath the skin and reduces the look of cellulite. While there may be lotions and products available over-the-counter that state the improvement of cellulite, by not treating the problem at the source, these items will never provide results. Instead, patients need to work with a team of professionals with access to technologically-advanced solutions to see the enhancement they desire.
