Cellulite is a common concern for many women. This condition, which causes dimpling of the skin around the buttocks and thighs, can be unsightly and cause women to feel self-conscious about how they look, especially during the summer months by the pool. Thankfully, the medical field has developed a range of solutions for patients to consider when they are faced with these imperfections, including advanced treatments such as VASERsmooth.
To understand how VASERsmooth works, patients must first have knowledge as to why cellulite occurs. Cellulite has nothing to do with a patient’s weight. Instead, it is caused by tight bands in the skin that cause fat cells to pucker in-between. This is what causes the “cottage cheese” appearance to the skin. While many patients have tried massages or creams in the past, none of these truly work because cellulite needs to be treated at the source of the problem—the fat cells.
VASERsmooth uses ultrasound energy that penetrates deep into the treated area to combat the fat cells. Fat cells are liquified and are naturally processed through the body’s lymphatic system. This reduces the areas of fat that push through the fibrous bands that cause the formation of cellulite. By doing this, the area becomes smoother and patients can improve their body contours effectively at the same time with the tightening and firming of the skin.
