Cellulite is a common condition that can occur in patients of any age or gender, though it is typically seen more prominently in women. Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics sees patients regularly who are complaining of the increase in cellulite on the buttocks, hips, and upper thighs. Understanding what cellulite is and how it can be treated can be a great way to inform patients of the solutions available to them.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by fibers underneath the skin that can become tight. When this happens, fat cells in the skin are pushed between them, causing the telltale dimpling of the skin known as cellulite. While there are a variety of products on the market that advertise that they can treat cellulite, none of these treat the problem at the source. It is important that the tight, fibrous bands are broken up to smooth the skin—something creams and massages cannot accomplish.
How can I reduce cellulite?
Cellulite can be addressed with the use of specialized devices that break down the bands underneath the skin. This is achieved with VASERsmooth. VASERsmooth is the use of a handheld device that cuts the fibers that cause cellulite while also stimulating the production of collagen in the treated area for a firmer, smoother appearance to the skin. VASERsmooth is inserted into small incisions of the skin and used to break down the fibers responsible for the dimpled appearance of the skin. This allows individuals to remove cellulite and feel more confident when wearing clothing that shows more skin. Many patients find that regular treatments after the initial sessions can keep cellulite from returning in the future.
