What Cellulite Reduction Treatments Really Work?
Shock, surprise, embarrassment, and annoyance: These are only a few terms describing the range of emotions you might feel when you discover that you have cellulite. But before you swear off shorts and swimsuits forever, learn about some of the non-surgical cellulite reduction treatments we offer at Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center in Beverly Hills. Prepare to ditch those dimples!
What Causes Cellulite?
There are many myths surrounding the causes of cellulite. Being overweight, trapped toxins in the body or having poor circulation are just a few you have likely heard.
What is the true cause of cellulite? Under your skin, there are bands of tissue that connect skin to muscle. Everyone has a layer of fat between their skin and muscle; when these fat cells push through the fibrous tissue, the skin is pulled down, and you see the dimpled, lumpy effect that is characteristic of cellulite.
Why Cellulite Reduction Products Never Work
There are a dizzying number of creams and lotions marketed by beauty product companies for cellulite reduction. While these products use terms like "antioxidants," "herbal extracts" and "natural botanicals" to try to sell you their products, there is no evidence that any of them actually reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The reason for this is simple: Cellulite occurs deep in your skin, and it is impossible for any topical treatment to penetrate through the connective tissue and into the fat below the surface of your skin.
Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Cellulite Reduction Treatments
Increased patient safety and no recovery period are the main benefits of non-surgical cellulite reduction treatments. Who has time to wait for a lengthy recovery? Why put yourself at risk with surgical procedures that require making incisions and being under anesthesia? With TriPollar and Thermage, you can get the smooth skin you have always wanted without interfering with your daily routine or the dangers associated with surgical procedures.
TriPollar for Non-Surgical Cellulite Reduction
TriPollar treatments are a non-surgical alternative for noticeable cellulite reduction. Using radio frequency energy, TriPollar works by heating the lower layers of your skin where the collagen is located. This strengthens and regenerates collagen fibers and shrinks fat cells. The result is tightened and smoothed skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite. You will notice results immediately and be able to go about your daily activities with no downtime. Be assured that TriPollar treatments will not damage your skin.
Thermage for Non-Surgical Cellulite Reduction
Thermage is a non-invasive procedure that sends pulses of radio frequency energy into the deeper layers of your skin, promoting collagen production. After a single treatment, your skin is tightened, and any unwanted dimples and lumps are smoothed. Because Thermage combines a heating and cooling effect, you can rest easily knowing that you'll feel comfortable during the procedure and that your skin is protected from damage. There is no recovery period, so you can resume your daily activities without any worries.
